5. The Anticipation Of Finishing One's Exam And Getting Wrecked Doing Campus 14


Everyone knows that exams are pretty bent, how many facts can you cram into your head and write down on a shitty bit of paper before the clock runs out, what a farce, wouldn't catch Phaedrus (Zen reference, Duncan/Bill/Dave/Howard/Rich/I would like that - add yourself to this list now, go buy it) advocating that sort of assessment (shit). Anyway, I finish mine today with a lovely module entitled Philosophy of Art (aesthetics etc sic). I am squealing with delight (inside) at the thought of pulling a " Campus 14" on Nottingham University Campus immediately after vacating the (dirty/striplit/overly-hot) exam hall. This consists of 14 bars, 1 for each of the Halls, over 4/5 hours, a pint or 2 bottles or 2 shots in each. which leaves us about 15 minutes in each bar. it could be messy, hopefully i'll sneak some photos...


Luckily we have the best campus in the country, so it should be fun.

That's a quantity of alcohol that would make Big Paul blush.

Then vomit.

This post harks back to the old days of 'grungio boredemio' - it is very nearly a general rant about exams. a(n extended) rant would be most welcome. they(exams) are well gay.

ps
i have a new found love for tracks 2-4 on toxicity, they have beautiful 'slow down(s)'. that said, i will balance my opinion with a contrasting one from the 'nme':

"Dumb riffola is one of life's most consistent pleasures, from AC/DC to Andrew WK, so it's an annoying day when heavy music gets clever and starts playing around with time signatures.

'Toxicity' suffers from rhythmic attention deficit disorder, as if they're building in breath-breaks for the moshing kids. Perhaps they're just wilfully perverse. Whatever: very hard to listen to without travel sickness pills."

summary: remember kids, play it safe and no-one will be dissapointed.

ah yes, but only negative because i'm aiming at a positive, to abolish exams and introduce a Mind-network form of assessment. just plug our minds into a computer and see what mark they want to give us then.
ah nme are so funny. deluded too

YES! Tracks 3 and 4 are superb, they make my auditory canals melt with rythmic attention deficit disorder.

do nme hire people who have broader musical tastes than just The Killers?
