The bells first rang in 1928 when they were installed with the construction of Baker Tower. Initially, the bells were rung manually until more efficient mechanisms, such as automated paper rolls and computerized systems, evolved. Today, an iMac computer runs the show: at every hour and half hour, a graduate student in the Music Department “rings the bells” via wireless access. Not quite the Quasimodo image you expected, is it?
I don’t like pie. This admission had the potential to be a dealbreaker in my current relationship, but like my mother, a vegetarian who still cooks meat for my father, I’m willing to cook my way to a solution.
Let’s be honest – Dartmouth kids are a creative bunch, but when it comes to snarkiness, there are a set of guaranteed crowd-pleasers that are successful time and time again. Here are some of my personal favorites.
People often ask me whether I actually make the creations I suggest in this column. The answer is yes, I do. But there are some recipes I make more than others. In the case of this recipe, I make it every single day. Sometimes twice. Sometimes three times.
You know when you are looking for a healthy dessert but aren’t feeling a banana or an apple and want something with a little more substance? That is what this is.
The following meal set off the five overeager fire alarms in my apartment seven times. Not because I burned anything, but because said overeager fire alarms are activated also by steam, and billowy, Guinness—scented steam was plentiful in the preparation of this meal.
Looking for an exciting way to spend a fall weekend? Need an escape from grueling midterms and assignments? The Great Vermont Corn Maze, located about an hour away from campus in Danville, Vt. offers the opportunity to get lost — literally — in one of the most enormous corn mazes in the country.
Pro tip (whether you are at Collis Cafe or '53 Commons): put pineapples in your stir-fry. You are welcome. When I got up there, I managed to only get in a quick chat with Grace before she had to turn her attention to assist others with their stir-fry ... what n00bs. Just kidding! What really happened was I finally got up there, had a clean wok set atop the induction burner, and immediately squirted some oil into it — this is wrong. Don’t do this! Grace was quick to correct me. After receiving lessons on working the wok with Grace herself, I make a stir-fry faux pas right in front of her as soon as I step up to the plate? How embarrassing! My ancestors must be rolling in their graves. Dear readers, please learn from my mistake and take these extra pearls of wok wisdom to heart for stir-fry that’ll make even Collis Dave blush:
1. Always ask if there is a student discount in the store when you go shopping.
Outdoor farmer’s market season is winding down. This is the equivalent of snatching crack away from a toddler — me, of course, being the toddler. In the Bay Area, we have outdoor farmer’s markets at least four days a week, most of which run year-round. For me, the worst part of returning to Hanoveris that suddenly all the produce labeled “California-grown” ceases to be virtuously local, and instead becomes Bad and Unseasonal. It’s traumatic.
1) Jeans are staple apparel for any college student, but I also like brown or darker tan colored khakis as they provide a more mature look for the seemingly nonchalant striver. Dockers D1 Slim Fit, similar to the Levi’s 514s, is my choice for the most affordable, versatile pair. I have personally found the Levi’s 514 Slim Straight pants to be the most comfortable and best fitting option, and I encourage anyone with a tight budget to seriously consider making these the main part of your outfit. For jeans and fit, I like to refer to Levi’s style numbering for comparisons, although others might have a favorite brand or prefer different, more suitable sizing alternatives. For most people, the Skinny 511s, Slim 513s, and 514s are the only jeans and pants that could give a flattering look. Even as a skinny guy, I found the 511s fit a little bit too tightly around the legs. Only the 511 pants have that fashionable form to them, whereas the 511 jeans made me look like a hipster from SoHo. The 514s boast superior comfort while still retaining a very decent cut, and I highly recommend them if you want a safe pick in your online shopping.
1. Get a flu shot. Conveniently, Dick’s House is offering free vaccinations this week. Sign up online now before spaces fill up.
Music. Dartmouth is collectively obsessed with gussying us up in its finest hand-me-down leotards and ’80s printed shirts while we dance to the rewritten lyrics of One Direction songs. And it’s never announced, never expected. Instead, you are lured to mandatory meetings under false pretenses and slapped in the face with animal-covered onesies, guys wearing neon leggings and Enrique Iglesias.
The light is lit on several occasions throughout the year for major events to welcome alumni, trustees and other guests to campus, according to the College library website. In 1975, the College's Director of Business Affairs hand-wrote a memo that listed when the tower light would shine. The events include Convocation, Homecoming, Winter Carnival weekend, Green Key weekend, First-Year Family weekend, Commencement, Reunions and Board of Trustees meetings.
Accepting his award at this year’s Emmys on Sunday night, Homeland star Damian Lewis aptly deemed the current state of television as a “golden age.” Alas, the Jimmy Kimmel-led awards ceremony did not do full justice to this thriving creative spirit (Modern Family again?). However, the major highlight – other than the fight between Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, that is – was the bestowing of four Emmys to Lewis’ show Homeland, a surprise win for a show that pushes the boundaries of viewer empathy.
One balmy California night, while I was still a bright-eyed young high-schooler, a revelation splashed upon me, like the water from a boiling-over pasta pot: Not everyone cooks.
Poverty Lane Orchards, in Lebanon, features rows on rows of apple trees that are just ripe (literally) with apples ready for the picking. There are three types of apple trees denoted by colored ribbon, but the pricing remains constant. You are given a bag (or you can bring your own) to pick as many apples of any kind as you’d like as long, as you pay $1.05 per pound. Tree varieties are McIntosh, Cortland, and Macoun – with McIntosh being best for baking because of its tendency to soften with heat. Or, if you are feeling lazy, Poverty Lane assembles bundles of apples by variety into paper tote bags and even a Costo-style bulk version, which they call the “utility pack” full of McIntosh apples for the pie maker in you.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Dartmouth. I love it so much I’m still writing this column even though I’m not even on this term. I love Dartmouth in all its beer-soaked, mung-covered, new-meal-plan-random-walkthroughs-no-more-funding-for-Green-Team-is-the-administration-just-blacked-out-all-the-time? glory. But Dartmouth, I have a bone to pick with you.
Depending on the classes you signed up for or how much you care about them you may or may not have discovered that massive complex of buildings north of the green called Baker Berry library. Offering a diversity of study spaces from quiet to social, from gloomy to sterile, from Hogwarts (think Tower Room) to King Arthur, there likely is something for everyone. Unfortunately, the library can get old, and--come finals--can also get really crowded. Fortunately, there are more places to study outside the library.
