Experiences in 151 as told by Fred Fresh, ‘18

Through a sudden time anomaly caused by the particle accelerator under Kafadar, “The Oredigger” was able to interview a freshman taking EPICS 151 during the Fall of 2014. The results were somewhat shocking. In the future, there is a shortage of cookies on campus since only 20% of the Mines population has the skillset needed to produce cookies. As a result, the Fall 2014 semester of EPICS 151 is a course on cookie design. The following is a transcript of an interview with the exasperated student, as the stress of designing cookies caused him to monologue for several minutes. “The Oredigger” was unable to get a word in edgewise.

The Football Informant: Drums in the Deep

Sometimes you can get lucky. Even the best of the best occasionally show weakness. Anyone can beat anyone else on any given night. Just look at Florida State, for instance, who managed to lose to NC State. It could happen, right? And why not with us? This is the internal monologue of Alabama’s opponents, those who are in the way of this juggernaut and have to hope against hope that it can be beaten. This week, I am one of those people. After all, my team is in the top five in the country, and it has hung with Alabama in the past two meetings, even winning once. Who have the Tide played, really, to prove that they are really as good as the results say? Don’t forget the importance of home field, and it looks like the offense is finally coming around… maybe. I could go on and on, but the rationalizations serve only to hide the truth – I, like every LSU Tiger fan, am scared as all hell right now. There’s a Balrog coming up the tunnel, and the only thing we can really do is run for our lives.

Imagine Dragons creates diverse album

Imagine Dragons, a funky and fresh music group, is about to lose its statues as a hipster group. Formed in 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada, they are quickly working their way to the top of indie rock charts. The band received their big break this summer, when they toured with AWOLNATION. Their new album, “Night Visions,” was released this year and contains combinations of guitar, drums, mandolin, and occasional synthesizers to make for an original, catchy sound – a sound which has helped them become successful both in the alternative rock category and in the indie rock scene.
