Why don’t we have a class called “GaGa for Gaga”?!

According to “The Huffington Post,” via “The Cavalier Daily,” there’s a class at UVA called “GaGa for Gaga: Sex, Gender, and Identity.”

Something is very wrong here. How does UVA have a class (granted it’s class for grad students) about Lady Gaga and “Sex, Gender, and Identity,” and Brown does not? Calling all Professors, this may be something to consider when writing the titles for next year’s classes.

I wonder what they’d have to say about her meat dress from last Sunday’s VMA awards.

What to do tonight: 5/6

What’s that you say? You’re sick of studying for your finals? You missed both Star Wars Day (May the fourth be with you!) AND Cinco de Mayo because you were working?* You finally finished that sixteen thousand page paper and you’re looking for a way to reward yourself? Well, look no further, we got you covered.

High and ‘Stoned

8:00-9:00 P.M., Macmillan 117, $2

The Higher Keys and Brown’s Tones (‘stone for the purpose of the event title) are getting together for one of their final concerts of the semester and they promise that it will be “a smoking good time!” There are also rumors of baked goods available after the show AND a brand-spanking-new Lady Gaga medley from the Tones. They better be careful, though. The US Army has set the bar pretty high on that one.


10:00 P.M., Sci Li Plaza

Pizza! Music! Glow sticks! If you haven’t left the Sci Li in three days or if you just come for the study break, you should be there for this.

Rafiki Party

10:00 P.M. – 1:00 A.M., Bravo (123 Empire St), $5

The proceeds from this party, hosted by Rafiki Ya Maisha, go to to building a vocational training school in Chepkanga, a small village in Kenya. So basically, not going to this party means you’re a terrible, selfish human being.

*This is not actually a justifiable excuse for missing Cinco de Mayo.

Time-waster of the day: April 21, 2010

Lady Gaga “don’t wanna be friends” with this guy!

Time-waster of the day 2/19/10

To waste your time today — Lady Gaga.

This just in: American Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir is “gonna get ya hard.” He just may show ya what he’s got, too.

After the jump, even more Poker Face. Continue Reading

Lady Gaga shoots music video in Warwick, not really

The Lady herself didn’t actually shoot Bad Romance in Rhode Island, but four Warwick college students did create this shot-by-shot remake, involving brilliant low-budget props such as hula hoops, laundry baskets and tinfoil. One of the four teens is starting Army boot camp in June, and he told the Projo that “things in the Army will go a little smoother if they don’t know about this video.”

You’ll be amazed and awed, but probably mostly jealous that you didn’t do it first.

For optimal enjoyment, check out the two videos side-by-side on YouTube doubler.
