On the Culture of College Drinking: An Exercise of the Imagination

October 11, 2014 - 4:49pm

**Disclaimer: This article reflects the opinion of the author and is not meant as a reflection upon the student body at Brandeis or any other University. Let’s play a game of make believe. Just for a second. Let’s pretend there is no such thing as Thirsty Thursdays, or Wednesday bar night; red solo cups are reserved for Manischewitz at Passover dinner; the only other word associated with pong is ping; shot gunning Vodka only happens between KGB members, or Putin and his inner circle; the phrase “black out” or “hammered” or “trashed” or “messed up” are used to describe an electrical outage or a carpentry project or, God forbid, a simple mistake, respectively. Let’s pretend we can recall what happened to us last Saturday night....

The majority of the songs are tunes you can dance to (which is always a plus, seeing as this is a party mix); some are popular, others might be less well known, but are still just as catchy.

Once Upon A Time Once Upon A Time opened up their fourth season with quite a bang. Bringing characters from my favorite recent Disney Movie, Frozen was a gutsy move and I was nervous about it. It worked. It copied the movie a lot but overall I think it will enhance this season.
