Nov
29

There's a copy of this book at the Maritime Greenwich campus but it's reserved until the 16th of december or something. I was wondering if it's anyone on this course and if so whether I'd be able to have a look at it some time this week. Cheers everyone, good luck!

On monday The Environmental society are holding a swap shop event from 12-2pm in PK107, The Amnesty International society and the RAG society will also be there.

Campus publication

UMSA has asked for the recreation of the school newspaper (formerly known as PULP - this name is not required).

At this current stage, there is an active search for nearly anyone willing to write or do any other work for it. This includes areas like:

- writers (reporters, feature writers, subeditors, columnists, critics, etc - even novelists and poets - basically anyone who wants to write)

- designers and artists (designers, photographers)

- finance and law consultants (sponsor-finding and overseeing contracts - business and law students preferably)

Guns 'n' Roses actually releasing their long-awaited album Chinese Democracy, perhaps?!

Rumour has it that the well-known Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. made a promise of a free Dr Pepper to everyone in America if the new album was released before the end of 2008. Unfortunately when they said everyone, they didn't mean everyone; ex-band members Slash and Bucket head have been excluded from this once in a lifetime offer, not that they will be losing any sleep over it I imagine!

My Best Friend's Girl

Nov
27

I just went to see My Best Friend's Girl (with my girlfriend, not of my own free will) and it was pretty good, I thought.

Basically, the main character has a lucrative scheme in which he behaves despicably to women who have recently broken up with men, in order to make them run crying back to their ex's when they see the difference between the 'hand' and the 'bush' (as the protagonist puts it).

Sports Personality of the Year

Nov

As the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards take place next month, it is time to observe the candidates who have been nominated.

Whilst most people's minds will be fixed on Formula One's youngest rookie World Champion, Lewis Hamilton and athletic Beijing Olympics swimming double gold medallist, Rebecca Adlington, the competition on the 14th December, allows the chance for other rival characters to make a formidable charge for the prize.

Spanish Civil War documentaries

Nov
27

Last night I watched two of the documentaries on www.youtube.com. There are five, apart from the 'prelude to tragedy' which Tim suggested. If you are fed up of reading then i recommend these, they give a good insight into the historical context of Spain in this period and are really interesting.
