Since SUNY was already looking for an excuse to get rid of Fountain Day, they’ve finally figured it out! Let a single block of people take something too far and cancel something which has been a tradition for ages while simultaneously disappointing 17,000 or so students. Sweet.
If you partied with KAB last night, you made a wise decision.
A huge thank you goes out to everyone who came out last night, helping Fuze Box reach capacity (again) and for showing Brother Suarez, Party With Tina and Deep Children proper love. Yes.
Of course, there is the unfortunate possibility you might’ve hung outside for 45+ minutes, potentially sneaking sips of old recipe Four Loko, waiting to get in. Lesson learned for next time — get there earlier.
Inevitable reliving of last night via photo madness, check. Getting weird into the morning hours under the nearly full moon, check.
Moon party T-shirts, not coming soon.
The full moon has been linked to everything, ranging from the bad to the good to the inexplicably weird. The list spans out to include crime, suicide, DWI’s, natural disasters, emergency room visits, sleep walking, fertility, werewolves, anxiety, behavior shifts, etc. Numerous studies have been conducted investigating the causal relationship of celestial patterns but the findings have been few and far between. The studies conducted in 1996 by Ivan Kelly, James Rotton and Roger Culver narrowed it down to people believing in lunar myths, despite the inconclusive scientific musings, due to the media’s up play of urban legends, folklore, and communal reinforcement of full moon phenomena.
Tonight, take that alleged weirdness and multiply it.
The moon will be considered a “supermoon” or “perigee moon” tonight for the first time since March of 1993. Due to the moon’s oval-shaped orbital path, the moon will be about 50,000 km closer to Earth than it is as an apogee moon. NASA reported that the moon will appear 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual. Technically, the moon will be less than one hour away from perigee–a “near-perfect coincidence,” said Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory in Washington DC.
It’ll be hard to really tell the difference between tonight’s moon and what we normally see but it’ll be worth looking for. Best time is when the moon is near the horizon to witness the full experience.
Make tonight good-weird. Just not car-flipping weird.
The official spokesman for APD was arrested last night and charged with a DWI.
Bad timing — APD is on clean up duty after the Kegs and Eggs chaos and media thunderstorm this past weekend. APD is also no stranger to trouble, the last chief suddenly retired amid a racism scandal, they got caught using decals to get out of tickets for 15 years, photos of cops drinking on duty were found on pocial media websites, over 50 sketchy machine guns were bought and distributed and at least one turned up illegally sold to the public, a cop allegedly beat his wife with a pistol, and Metroland pretty regularly criticizes the department for being a mess.
APD could not be reached for comment.

Well, well, well. Upon seconds of this episode starting, we’re confronted with the everyone’s least favorite thing after Glen Beck, Ronnie and Sam, fighting, again. Sam then reasons with Ron telling him “you can’t be mad at me for this.” Then straight up admits she hit up Arvin, like the sneaky weirdo she is. She says she hit him up to “get a rise out of you, be spiteful, or to get you back”, she’s an actual crazy person.
It cuts to Jenny, Snookie and Deena rolling around in a box (???). And Deena starts the scene with the question “Do I look like a lopsided?” Snooki then kicks a box and falls on to the hardwood floor. Apparently the little traction dots are worn off of those big green slippers. Deena then gets in the the box and exclaims “I feel like I’m in a spaceship!” which sort of makes me feel that she may actually have never been inside of a spaceship before. Mike chimes in stating “I’ve never thought I’d meet someone who makes Snooki look like a rocket scientist, but Deena takes the cake.”
The three girls (Jenni, Deena and Snooks) get to work ten minutes late, and are real pissed off when Danny again, tries to get them to perform work tasks while at work. Deena, who explains herself and attitude at work by saying “Dannys on my case…bro…I’m not trying to do this, I’m trying to live my life”, Danny fires back with “Thanks for officially being the worst, worst employee of the 2010 season!”
Snooki and Vinny head out to the burger place. Snooki then asks amazing questions at the burger place such as “beer battered onion rings…do you cook that in beer?!” Snooki then makes shit really awkward by asking Vinny why he’s not fucking her instead of these rando chicks.
Next day, Vinny decides to go get his ears pierced. He’s scared and states that he was peer pressured into it. Pauly then tells him to ‘b.c.’ which means “be cool.” (Just added that shit into the vocab btw.)
They then all of course decide to go out, Sammy and Ronnie of course make me bang my head against the floor by getting wine and staying in. Vinny then asks Pauly what Deena’s favorite party of Mario Brothers, which is “Denim, denim, denim.” Also Vinny says “Mario” like I do, and get made fun of by all the upstaters for saying. Vinny then, to Deena’s dismay, states to the confessional, “She’s like, whatever, I look good. Like she thinks she looks good. I don’t think she knows denim isn’t in anymore.”
On the walk to the club some motorcycle dude revs their engine at the girls and Jenny explains, “that means he’s got a small penis.”
The Israeli stalker happens to be at the club. She is apparently allergic to getting hints because she asks Pauly whether or not he’s done with his grenades, and he tells her “nope” and carries on. “Danielle is the only thing that scares me in Seaside.”
Ron invites Sam to sleep with him upstairs. Holy hell.
Vinny and Pauly go to Aztec, where it’s only women who are older than Jesus’ dinosaur, and Pauly accurately described the situation as “if this atomic bomb explodes, there won’t be any more boardwalk. They get fed up and leave with the grenades anyway since it’s all part of the same game.
Again, this chicks brother comes to an actually responsible human and try to figure out how his sister and friend are getting home tomorrow. Pauly realizes this is his ticket to getting this el granado out of the house and asks this dude “can you give her a ride now?” It’s only made more awkward by Vinny asking “can you give her a ride tomorrow.” This chick then tells Vinny “you’re a fucking dick, you know that? I’d rather fuck Mike anyway.” Vinny jokes and grabs Snooks (as his last resort chick) and pretends he’s gonna go smash. Dick move. He plays her out and keeps trying to smash and she’s shutting him down. YGG.
Deena weighs in on the situation with “Let’s be real you didn’t come here for pastries and coffee. You came here to do sex with Pauly and Vinny.” YGG.
Sams calls out Vinny for yelling at Deena for getting Kool Aid on his kicks. They then resolve it via a freestyle battle. Vinny then actually makes her mad after she asks him to “say something mean.”
Mike and DJ Pauly D head over to the Shore Store for their last day at work. Mike is asleep at work, in tons of places. Like the fitting room and behind the counter. Mike sleeps in the dressing room, then the UPS dude blocks him in with boxes and claims he got trapped inside. He’s awesome.
Ronnie’s mom calls, and is fucking obliterated. Mike tells Ronnie’s mom everything Sam did to Ronnie in the recent past. Ronnie hangs up on her because she’s blitzed.
Mike is telling Ron more about the Arvin situation, Sam is clearly sweating bullets. Mike calls him, he tells him they’ve made out. Ron storms out and that’s the episode.
APD is in full force at the intersection of Quail St. and Hudson Ave. in the heart of the student ghetto today handing out motor vehicle tickets at any chance they can get. My roommate got three!
DGS was canvasing the area cleaning the sidewalks and trashcans ahead of the student-led clean up tomorrow.
A student, the son of a top editor at the New York Daily News, turned himself in today after seeing himself in a heavily distributed list of Kegs and Eggs chaos suspects (Times Union exclusive). Many more have been arrested and suspended in the last few days.
A lot of people are paying props to a Keep Albany Boring post that highlighted the Kegs and Eggs debauchery and launched it into viral stardom.
Last year a vote was cast to rename the student ghetto in an attempt to re-brand it and make it more educational and stuff. Among the choices were “Education District” and “The Zone”, which also doubles as a DP Dough calzone. Anton from the Hudson River Coffeehouse is suggesting “Student Square” because it is much less lame and might actually have a chance.
And finally, let’s recall a classic hit bragging about UAlbany partying by Neil Roche. The song mentions Kegs and Eggs and is set to the beat of Asher Roth.
Oh yes, we’re almost in the home stretch for this Friday’s party. Of course Duncan and I would wait until almost too late to release a fun little mix of what you can get used to before the party.

The “forthcoming pain” that a stern District Attorney David Soares spoke of yesterday began to be felt in the student population today when APD released and distributed a press release asking for help identifying a list of students involved in this weekend’s debauchery.
This ain’t no “#1 Party School” list, but instead a showcase of stupidity that will surely be a buzzkill for many local students. UAlbany started suspending students today.
APD, the DA’s office, UAlbany and St. Rose are all working together to identify people seen in videos incriminating themselves in destructive behavior. “Brocial media”, as KAB coined on Sunday, proved to be a regrettable thing.
However some still don’t get it, and three days post-apocalypse people are still online bragging about the “best Kegs and Eggs ever” and saying “UA GO HARD OR GO HOME”. We recommend the latter.
