I notice no one has posted in here for ages, but...
I am applying to MCA for Fall 07 and I was just wondering if anyone could tell me anytinhg about the college that isn't really in the viewbook? I won't be able to visit, so I just want to get a student perspective. I'm going to be a photography major. Mostly I want to know things about the social aspect of the school (how the student body gets along, is it easy to make friends, are people cliquish, is this a "party school") how the professors are, and how is the workload? Oh! and is there a cafeteria, the viewbook was kind of ambiguous? It said something about a cafe I think. If there is, are there a lot of (vegetarian) options? Sorry for all the questions but thanks in advance for any answers.

Just saying hi to any new members -- I'm the mod. I just graduated, but I'm all for giving advice or whatever to new and prospective students.

A New Little Kid

I'll be attending MCA in the fall and I just wanted to say hello.

What is there to do in Memphis (midtown/dowtown area) and how has the college's program treated all of you?

Thanks, sorry if this is a bit irritating,

seeking audiophiles for interviews

For one of my final projects, I am making a web zine about audiophiles. If you are a music enthusiast, please please please participate in my project. I don't know if I'm going to actually get to publish it on the web or not, but even if I don't I will find a way to get a copy of the zine to you as a token of my appreciation for your participation (oh snap that rhymed).

If you're interested, here's what you have to do:
    1 - Be a true music enthusiast.
    2 - Include your name, age, sex, and location (city & state)
    3 - Supply a photograph of yourself, preferably a self-portrait. Creativity is encouraged, but your face must be visible. Must be at least 400 x 300 pixels at 180 resolution.
    4 - Answer the interview questions as thoroughly as possible. Don't be short - spill it! Don't worry about being too lengthy - verbosity is highly encouraged (and preferred) as long as it is fueled by genuine enthusiasm. Keep in mind that I can always edit things to be shorter if I need to, but if there isn't enough then there just isn't enough :( Please make this interesting and NOT boring. Be aware that I might ask you more questions, specific to your answers, at a later date. There are a lot of questions and you don't have to answer ALL of them, but if you did that would be fucking amazing.
    5 - My teacher wants me to have some research done by Monday night. This stuff = research. If you could give me some answers to the interview questions, that would be awesome. Pics can always come later.
    6- Send all answers/images to: SteffaniLove@midsouth.rr.com
    7- Have fun with this! It's going to be an interesting project.

If you are interested in participating, go here for more information. Your help with this project is greatly appreciated. Please participate - it is critical that I get as many people in on this as I can. Thanks in advance :)

Hope this is not off topic, several professors at Memphis College of Art are fond of this guy.

Ambient/electronic music pioneer Robert Rich will be in concert at the University of Memphis Psychology Auditorium this Friday, April 7th, at eight pm. Ten bucks buys two hours of travel into deep space.

An evening featuring sonic surrealism, organic electronics and ethereal visuals.

There will be an article on him and the concert in this week's Memphis Flyer; this is his only visit to this area of the country. For more info visit http://www.robertrich.com/

Pagan Night Out and Coffee Talks

Hoping this isn't too far off topic, apologies if it is. I'm up here from New Orleans and hoping to attend Memphis College of Art during the next semester, finally getting stabalised in Memphis. Anyrate have been part of a group almost since I got up here and figured there might be some people here interested in this, especially if you're looking for something to do this Saturday. I'm still trying to meet more people as I don't know to many and most of my friends are scattered all over the country right now.

The Unity Pagan Fellowship (UPF) has open coffee talks every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at Memphis Originals. Everyone is welcome, pagan, not pagan, just curious, just interested in the topic or want some intelligent people to chat with. There is generally a topic picked before hand but all are welcome. When I get the chance will start posting the topics to the website in advance (www.unitypaganfellowship.org)

Secondly wanted to let anyone who may be interested know about an event we sponsor the last Saturday of everymonth, again open to everyone although minors must be accompanied by an adult. It's the Pagan Night Out, different location/part of town every month. More info about it behind the cut for those who aren't interested.

Pool and Pilsners
... with Pagans?

Pagan Night Out info for 1-28-2006Collapse )

Thanks! Hope this isn't bothering anyone, the reason I put the bulk of it behind the cut.
Take care,

I'm a Writer for MemphisMojo.com and I want to get some feedback from people about the site--what you like about it what you don't like, how it could be better, what type of info you'd like to see on it, is it easily navigated, would you visit it more than once, what would make you visit more than once etc. Go check it out http://www.memphismojo.com and respond to this thread.

We're working on lots of new ideas, but I just want to be sure we're headed in the right direction, so your thoughts would be much appreciated.

Also, for those of you in bands or doing something interesting in the city--be it art, whatever, I want to hear from you. I may be able to spotlight you in an interview for upcoming features on the site.

art history and liberal studies

I just got off the phone with that silly broad of a new registrar. She pretty much RUINED my morning by telling me that since I don't intend to minor in art history, I can't take two of the three art history classes I registered for. Cos that will give me too many art history classes. They USED to just count them as liberal studies classes, but they don't do that anymore for some ungodly reason. The only liberal studies classes that I would be able to take are Forms of Fiction, Southern Literature, and Cultural Anthropology (which is probably full). I've already taken every other liberal studies class - yet I still need four liberal studies credits.

Does anybody else think it is really fucking ridiculous that they won't give you liberal studies credits for art history courses anymore? THEY COULD HAVE AT LEAST SENT OUT A MEMO ON IT.
