Ten minutes before the start of 10A classes last Thursday, Jake Greenberg ’17 strolled into the Black Family Visual Arts Center’s video editing suite with a hot mug of coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. While other students spent the previous night celebrating Green Key, Greenberg and his classmates from Film Studies 39, an advanced video making class, were busy applying the final touches to their original documentary, “Good Vibes and Duct Tape: Stories with Cindy Pierce.”

Whether students wanted to enjoy modern bluegrass on the Collis Center patio, rock out to 1990s cover music on the Alpha Delta fraternity’s lawn or rap with Lupe Fiasco on the Gold Coast lawn, Green Key weekend brought ample music acts to campus. Hosted by Collis, Programming Board and Greek houses, students braved the rain to listen to a range of musical artists.
Entering the Montshire Museum of Science’s first floor collections, patrons on Saturday were confronted by a monster 42 feet long and 13 feet tall. They stared awestruck at its whopping 58 teeth, the longest measuring over a foot long, and shuddered to think of the destruction that the 14,000-pound beast could inflict.
Richard Stephenson ’12, or “SHEBA Richard” as he is known by some on campus, did not grow up dancing. The North Port, Florida, native’s idea of a “stage” was grass field bookended by yellow goal posts until he arrived on campus as a freshman.

Entering the Hopkins Center, it’s difficult to miss the latest Barrows Rotunda exhibit, an oil-on-canvas work titled “Indulgent” created using stencils for both the faceless human figures and the striking yellow background. It depicts a room with two human figures, one of whom almost blends into the yellow background of the wall. The other figure is seated on the ground, leaning on one arm.
Love blinds. Love wounds. Love keeps us going. The Dartmouth theater department’s production of Rajiv Joseph’s “Gruesome Playground Injuries,” directed by Nick O’Leary ’14, made these truths slowly, painfully evident this weekend in Moore Theater.
Women have a representation problem in film. There simply aren’t enough women in movies, and when they are, the characters seem to be hideous caricatures of what two middle-aged white guys think women act like. As someone who loves movies, this saddens me. As much as I love watching men struggle through conflict in movies, I like seeing films with women front and center because it’s a nice change of pace. Women deserve better representation in the media, and as of late, there have been several television shows and movies working to promote that trend.

As the opening notes of Bennie Moten’s Kansas City Orchestra’s “Moten Swing” sounded on Thursday evening last week, conductor Don Glasgo was at ease. Only a close observer could notice the slight motions of his wrist keeping tempo — a contrast to the stereotypical conductor armed with a baton, elaborately motioning through the rhythms. Through the opening passage, guitarist Zack Cutler ’14 anchored the chord progression with a walking bass line provided by Andrew Shea ’17. Floating on top, pianist Becky Zegans offered variation. Suddenly, there was a blitz of brass which stopped as quickly as it started.
Growing up in New York City, Nathan Lehrer ’14 remembers having a passion for music since an early age. As a child, hearing music made him break out in dance and boogie around his house to his favorite tunes.
