Daily Debriefing

(10/11/10 2:00am)

Dartmouth College joined HathiTrust, a "digital repository for the nation's great research libraries," on October 5, Library Journal reported. The company allows member institutions to archive their collections and view the collections of other libraries. Dartmouth library users can now electronically share member libraries' collections, including Princeton University, Yale University, Columbia University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Although Dartmouth Dean of Libraries Jeffrey Horrell told Library Journal the College was not planning to store digital volumes with HathiTrust right away, the College saw the move to join as "part of our overall preservation and archiving strategy."

Briefly Noted

The Dartmouth men's club rugby team (4-0) thwarted thevisiting Brown University Bears 107-5 on Saturday afternoon in front of several hundred fans and alumni in one of the annual alumni events hosted at the Corey Ford Rugby Field House. The Big Green started out quickly and kept up the pressure on the Bears, not allowing a score until there were six minutes left in the match. The Big Green also broke the triple-digit margin for the first time this season, according to co-captain Paul Jarvis '12. Jarvis said he was extremely impressed by his team's performance and execution, as well as the support of the fans and alumni. "The team has to work on support play and prepare for a very physical Columbia [University] and rival Harvard [University], and continue to live up to the high standards [they] have set for the season," he said. The Big Green will appear next at home on Oct. 16 as they host the Columbia Lions.

Feeling eco-neutral today? "No pressure," but if you don't agree to cut your carbon emissions by 10 percent in 2010, then the 10:10 global campaign is going to press a big red button of doom that will cause you and your fellow eco-abstainers cute children included to be blown to a bloody pulp. At least that's the message touted by a promotional video recently posted on the 10:10 campaign's website. The video begins with a creepy elementary school teacher asking her students if they will participate in 10:10. A couple of children say they won't, and the teacher, muttering incoherently about that being "absolutely fine," presses a red button that causes the children to explode. Three similar scenes follow, with more of the eco-neutral meeting a similarly bloody end. Understandably, the video has recently been removed from the 10:10 website (not soon enough to keep it from going viral, apparently), demonstrating that threatening to blow up adorable children is not, in fact, an effective marketing ploy.

Visiting artist's works fuse varied techniques

(10/11/10 2:00am)

Butt's paintings feature delicately detailed patterns set primarily on earth-toned backdrops, with several making use of tea-stained paper. Her style of repetitive imagery is seen in one piece through the use of objects spinning around a concentric center and in another as endless newspaper-cut text pasted row after row. Innumerable words layer together to form a tapestry of elaborate patterns.

Hood displays Stella's ‘Polygons'

(10/11/10 2:00am)

Stella's relationship with the College began in 1963, when he came to campus as an artist-in-residence, the artist said in an interview with The Dartmouth. During his tenure at Dartmouth, Stella created the "Dartmouth Paintings," a series of abstract works named after cities in Florida. Similarly, he named the works in his 1965-66 "Irregular Polygon" series after small towns in New Hampshire, which the New England-born artist remembered from trips he took with his father in his childhood. In 1985, the year when the Hood Museum first opened its doors, Stella spoke at Dartmouth's annual convocation ceremony and received an honorary degree. Thus, his return to campus this October for the opening of the exhibit and as a Montgomery Fellow provides a nice symmetry in the artist's career.

Rollin' with Dollan

(10/11/10 2:00am)

In Howard Stern's "Private Parts," there's a scene where Howard's programming director has given him a list of inappropriate words that he's no longer allowed to say on the radio. In order to get around this, Howard conducts a mock game show where he has contestants fill in the blank. The one I remember, for example, is Howard tells the callers that it's the sound a rooster makes and the phrase is "_____ a doodle do." It's hilarious.
