Prism: Queer Students of Color presents Sexibition 2012: Breaking Traditions

From Neesha Rose, ’13

If anyone ever wanted their chance to show the world their sexy-this is their chance. We want Sexibition to continue to be a Smith tradition for generations to come.

This year we seek to do more than just celebrate sex. In the spirit of the theme, Prism challenges artists and models to surpass their own conceptions of sex and beauty, encapsulating the diverse artistic and expressive community that Smith is. We encourage artists and models to think outside the box by showcasing the vast population of racial identities, gender expressions, and body types. Sexibition this year strives to allow for a celebration of the entire Smith College community.

We are accepting a variety of artwork including (but not limited to) film, original photography, poetry, writing, sculpture, and musical performances.

This year, Sexibition will be hosted on April 7th, 7-9pm in Davis Ballroom. For more information, please visit the Sexibition 2012 Facebook event page or email us.


Are You Ready?? Conbust 2012 Hits Smith Friday!

I don’t think anyone is ever fully ready for the mystical weekend on the Smith campus that is Conbust.

 

Truth is, I don’t understand it one bit (not even Step Brothers could clear that one up for me) but I’m definitely down to see those cosplayers running around Smith again. Nothing pulls you out of your depressingly huge amount of work to do like seeing happy people dressed as elves and stuff getting their foam sword on.

More info here.

 

when: March 30-April 1

where: Seelye Hall

cost: prices and registration here

 

Do you plan on getting your LARP on this weekend? Are you interested in sending us more info or writing about Conbust? Hit us up: smithdblog@gmail.com


Bicycle Races Are Coming Your Way: No, Literally. LOOK OUUUUT!

Oh...Please don't...

Let me preface this by saying it’s just for the lolz. I have no intention whatsoever of slashing bike tires or cutting breaks. I happen to think bikes serve as a defining and sometimes even beautiful part of Smith culture. Clichés aside, please don’t seek me out and attempt to run me over. Though all things considered, this plea is probably pointless, since I’ve narrowly escaped being flattened a couple times without saying shit.

It’s 8:30 am. By some act of Christ herself, I have managed to drag my sorry ass out of bed, down four flights of stairs, and out the door to brave the cold weather/the warm weatherwhatever weather Northampton has decided to throw at me that morning. I start my morning walk to class, when I hear it from behind me: the stir of leaves, the crunch of wet gravel, the whoosh of the wind, and perhaps the ring of condescension. Mentally letting fly a colorful slew of profanities, I start to panic. Do I move? Do I turn around? Do I stop? Do I fall into the fetal position? WHAT IN THE NAME OF CHRIST DO I DO???? As much as I wish I could Temple Run my way to class, I…well… can’t, and I have to share the paths of Smith College with bikers. Here are the top 5 remarks I wish to impart on bikers campus wide. On your marks, get set, go. Also prepare yourself for a ton more shitty Queen references.

Smithie-Run Business/Internship Opportunity

From Shanila Sattar, ’12J:


Fellow Smithies, I am excited to say that my local business www.alwaysplay.com is up and running full force! We offer cool graphic designs, websites, mobile apps, content management systems and much more! We have been designing in the Pioneer Valley for over 9 years for locals like Sweeties Fine Chocolates and Confections, Northampton Film Festival and The Reels Blues Fest to name a few. Please visit our page, give it a “Like” and share it. We’re giving away a gift certificate to Best Buy on April 8th so you know you want to like us! Keep me in mind when you need a website or design work! We have student discounts available and would be happy to take on (paid) interns in the near future for those who are looking for exposure to designing platforms like Photoshop and Illustrator. Thanks for your support! 🙂
