First Look: Emma Roberts and John Cusack in ‘Adult World’ | The Playlist
Oh hey Syracuse. If you went to SU, I don’t need to explain to you why this is so funny…

Life may not always turn out the way you thought, and so it goes for Emma Roberts who plays Amy Anderson, a college grad in poetry, convinced she is the next star in the literary world. Unfortunately, rejection letters, unpaid student loans and more start stacking up so she finds a job at Adult World — an adult bookstore, naturally — but things change when she strikes up a mentorship with her hero and punk poet Rat Billings (John Cusack).

Aaron Sorkin’s Syracuse University Commencement Address | Syr.edu

Here’s video of the speech in its entirety.

I’d like to say to the parents that I realized something while I was writing this speech: the last teacher your kids will have in college will be me. And that thought scared the hell out of me. Frankly, you should feel exactly the same way.

Brooms Up! - Quidditch World Cup IV

This is a 30 minute documentary about the creation of Muggle Quidditch and the 2010 World Cup.  I can not recommend it enough. 

Back when I was a freshman at Syracuse University in 2007, I read that Quidditch teams were forming at colleges around the east coast.  I decided to make a facebook page to see if other students at SU were interested.  Although the facebook group grew in size, it never gained enough momentum to actually launch and I quickly lost interest.  The facebook page still exists, and still has the goofy logo I made for it, although I am no longer the admin.  

Watching this documentary and reading about the IQA, I wish that I had worked harder to Make ‘CUSE Quidditch Happen.  Luckily, someone else took up the cause and today Syracuse has it’s very own IQA Quidditch team.  This past month they made it to the quarter finals in the 2011 World Cup.

Newhouse TRF Student Planning Terrible Student Film

leorange:

Adam Hamford, a junior television, radio, and film student in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, has nearly finished the planning process for the terrible student film he hopes to begin filming next week.

“I finished the script and casting today.  My best friends, all of whom have never acted before, and this one kid who seemed pretty talented in my production class last year will attempt to give life to a script that has no definable story and little relatable, or believable, dialogue,” Hamford said.  “I’m excited to get started on this piece of shit.”

Hamford’s film will tell the story of one student’s experience at a Frat party, which he says enormously trivializes the actual experiences of most college students. 

“Man, all the scenes taking place during the party are going to be so dark that you can’t see anything because I have no knowledge of lighting a film.  Then, I’ll use some catchy filmmaking techniques like a poorly edited montage and a totally unnecessary voice-over,” Hamford said.

“I can’t wait to show this abhorrent attempt at filmmaking to my friends and family so they can awkwardly tell me they think it’s good,” He added.

No one from Hamford’s video production class is excited to see the early versions of the film.

I’m having flashbacks.

Hey look there’s my alma mater film department at 15! Right behind The Polish National Film, Television and Theater School. 

I wasn’t aware that Dino-BBQ had a food challenge. The article doesn’t specify what he ate. Guess we’ll have to wait til Sept when the episode airs.

Also, if you ever find yourself in Syracuse, NY you now know where to go.

Syracuse! I think Orange is the hot color right now and I love Otto, their mascot.
