Look how cute they are up there… stare into their eyes.
When I first started my experience at Middlebury, the Otters were the only thing that kept me strong through my period of depression. Always a good time, good laughs, and good stories, good people, good good… Please come by and share the mind-expanding experience of an Otters show tonight in proctor basement. <3 <3 <3 xoxo.
From Otter Jenny Johnston ’14:
The Otter Nonsense Players have their annual Christmas show tonight at 10:30pm in the Proctor Basement (that is the room where across from the bookstore that magically turns into Bed Bath&Beyond for the first few weeks of school). The furry creatures invite you to attend this merry event with all your friends and holiday cheer. Frowns and stress will not be let down the christmas tree. President Leibowitz may know that they have been naught but they are sure to offer the nicest of study breaks. Also, rumors have it that they will be spreading the giving spirit around dinner time in and around Proctor. Toys for Tots? Secret Santa? Maybe. Be sure not to miss the Otters last show of the semester or you may just end up with some coal yourself.

This film is an incredibly powerful documentary that sheds light on the rampant rate of sexual assault in the United States’ military. Through veterans’ personal narratives of the sexual violence they experienced while serving, primarily perpetrated by their own commanders and fellow officers, the film examines how the very hierarchy of power within forces perpetuates a culture that tolerates sexual harassment and sexual assault. The film cumulates with a call for a change in policies to help end such a pervasive, violent act to help protect the people fighting to keep our country safe.
The Beautiful Organizers of TEDxMiddleburywant you to know:
TEDxMiddlebury is a local, self-organized event that brings people together to share a TED-like experience. At our TEDxMiddlebury event, live speakers and TEDTalks videos will spark deep discussion and connection, and provide students and community members the opportunity to hear eleven live speakers and then engage with them directly following their talks. This fall marks our fourth annual TEDxMiddlebury conference, with this years theme being Research, Rethink, Rebuild, and speakers designing their ideas and talks around innovative problem-solving and the process involved with it.
This is the only speaker event at Middlebury College where such an incredibly diverse lineup of speakers is gathered in one place: a student at Middlebury College, a NYC parks commissioner, a food activist, a neurologist, a slam poet, and many more.
Happy Halloween Everybody!What is a greater way to remember all the departed saints, martyrs, and faithful Christians than getting a pint of local brews with your friends and hearing Middlebury’s new favorite band “The Fatheads” play at Middlebury’s own Drop In Brewery.
You are guaranteed amazing beer and great music. The Fatheads come on at around 6:30 and the the brewery closes at 8 so you can party and still get a good nights rest! (unless you’ve got some more plans..)
Last night we got a call from good samaritan Adam Benay ’14asking if we were MCAB. After we cleared that up,Benay notified us that all the Chance the Rapper Tickets were SOLD OUT. Who knew they were on sale? Where was the notification? A poster? All student email? Or an email from Ron’ with youtube links to his favorite rap tracks?
Benay set out to find out the answers to these questions and emailed JJ Boggs and MCAB. Heres what he wrote:
Its fall break after tomorrow and many of us are either driving somewhere or looking for a ride. Please feel free to comment with a request for a ride or an offer of a ride and include your email/contact info. This could be very helpful to anyone interested.

I went to the talk with Angelique Kidjo this afternoon (UPDATE: see above) and was blessed to have heard Angelique speak her mind. I had a little idea of who she is but when I heard her speak I realized we are in the presence of a living legend. I feel like a different person since this afternoon.
If you haven’t realized by now, Angelique Kidjo is the real thing. If you want to do anything with BEING ALIVE you should come to Nelson tomorrow at 7:45PM so you can catch the opening song. I seriously think this is going to be remembered as the best event that happened in my entire four years at Middlebury.
People are talking about their movie screenings and tests they need to take. I highly suggest you go enjoy this concert instead. People will be signing and dancing together.
Angelique Kidjo learned the English language because she wanted to BE James Brown.
Listen to the first 30 seconds of this song and tell us you are not a happier person. Then imagine our whole school coming together and dancing to this. Guess what, we can do that tomorrow night! -LDubs
PS I WILL ADD THE VIDEO OF THE INTERVIEW AS SOON AS IT GOES UP
