So this weekend was doghead. Or maybe Doghead. I would even go as far as calling it The Doghead, but that’s not as ergonomic. Like Justin Timberlake said in The Social Network, dropping the “the” makes it cleaner. I’m sure he was supposed to be playing someone else, but I can’t see him as anyone else. He was good in alpha dog though.
I can only talk in abstractions about this Colby-specific holiday because of its raunchy details, but that should almost serve as reason enough to come up here and experience. Some nuggets, you ask? Watching the sunrise with hundreds of other kids on the steps of Miller Library. And Goldfish. You will have to come up here to really understand that last one, and it is a doozy.
It’s almost definitely the most popular party day of the year at Colby, and a tradition that never ceases to surprise me. Colby is pretty small, even as far as North Eastern Small College’s go, but there’s obviously a concerted effort made by the faculty and the student organizations to make sure there is never a boring weekend.
For example, last spring SPB brought Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean. Think about that: there are only 1,800 kids that go to Colby. Even in a world where everyone in the school went to the concert (which is ridiculous to assume,) that is still a smaller crowd than those two rappers would garner for a concert individually – not to mention together.
This year SPB did it again, with Big K.R.I.T and J. Cole. Just like Wiz and Big, these are rappers that are just about to blow up (if you don’t consider J. Cole as having blown up already. I’m sure he thinks he has.) My sister went to the University of Buffalo, a huge school, and went to see a Smashmouth concert. Like four years ago. I’m just saying, I feel like we need to give credit where credit is due.
