A Survey...
Hey y'all!
  I was a proud Novite '01-'05, and I'm now out on the apposing coast doing the Mount Holyoke College thing for a major in Anthropology. I found myself in a position where the topic of alternative education is perfect for a rather large research assignment, and thought it'd be a good time to re-connect to Novites everywhere! (on Livejournal, anway...)
  So to satisfy my curiosity and academic needs, I'd really appreciate it if you could take a few minutes out of your day/evening/PerpetualPartyPeriod to respond to a few basic corny questions (see below.) This request goes out to both present and past Novites - I'd really appreciate feedback from anyone in the community. And hey: if you know applicable people who don't have Livejournals, go ahead and staple them down to a chair in front of a computer logged into your account so they can pitch in too! If you (or your staple-ee) feel more comfortable responding privately, you can do so by email - send to: ScreeFi at Gmail dot com.
   Enough pleasantries: On to the inquisition! The questions are:

1) What brought you to Nova? Why did you chose alternative education? What needs did you feel Nova could satisfy that the traditional system couldn't?

2) What do/did you think of Nova during your time there? What were your praises and complaints? Were your needs satisfied? How do you think a traditional experience would have compared?

3) a. (If you're a current student-) What are you planning/hoping to do after Nova? What route are you taking to get there? How has Nova helped/hindered you on that journey?
   b. (If you're an ex-Novite-) What are you doing now? Do you feel Nova prepared you well for what you wanted to do? How has Nova helped/hindered you on that journey?

4) Overall, what is your opinion of alternative education? Do you regret at all taking an alternative route?

5) (optional, for my own curiosity only) What's your name, what are/were your years at Nova, and who was your coordinator? (ex: Fiona, '01-'05, w/ Terrance) Any favorite memories?

And that's it! Painless, wasn't it? -well, minus the staples, maybe...
Thanks guys! Take care!

Compliment Day!
Today at Nova is Compliment Day! so try to give out compliments today. And since today is compliment day, I would like to compliment all of you today on the fact that you are reading this post. The fact that you are reading this post means you are not blind, and if you are blind you must have bionic eyes or something (which is pretty badass), and you can read. Congratz!

Hey everybody, this is your lovable friend Galen, in association with Tony Domike Corp. and Mat Morgan Inc. with a call to arms regarding our idea for class shirts. We decided we were jealous of Garfield's hilarious class slogan of last year, "'06 goes to Garfield High" and wanted to prove we could do better than this year's "'07 So Serious," and also we wanted a class tee shirt that didn't have a dead rat on it. So after going through a couple of ideas, we decided to put "Nova '07: Yes, we're an actual school" on tee shirts ordered from some website like printfection.com or cafepress.com. Now, of course this is in no way an "official" class slogan, but we figured we might not be the only ones wanting something of this nature, so we figured we'd put the word out to the school about it. We'd be glad for any input about this, and also we want some kind of design on the shirt, which is where Nova's collective artistic abilities would come in handy. We would greatly like to see these catch on, at least to some degree, so anyone who wants to help, or is interested in one of these shirts, post here or just come talk to one of us.

Have fun graduating, seniors.

Here's some animation that I made that did not make it into the '06 show case.
Turn up the volume on this one, the music of the ukulele is super soft, after all:


Sorry for the low-rez.
More later, perhapse.

I miss you guys.

Could anyone use some FREE STUDIO TIME?

I'm at school in Bellingham right now and I'm in Audio Recording II. My project partner & I need someone to record before May 25th (with a few days grace period before that so we can each do a mix-down).

It involves a drive up to Bellingham, but it's FREE RECORDING.

If anyone's free and needs/wants it, please either respond or email me at glitterglued [at] gmail [dot] com as soon as you possibly can.


Oh, P.S.:

I'm pretty sure we're required to mic a drumkit for this, so a band with drums would definitely be preferred.

Does anyone have a copy of the following books that I could have for my SCCC classes:

The Essential Cosmic Perspective (Third Edition)
Deaf Again?

If you do, please let me know, I'd be willing to give you some money for them... just don't want to have to pay full price at the bookstore.

Bored durring bridge week? Why not learn how to make a comic strip.
As impossible as it may seem some people may get bored durring bridge week, but not to worry kids of Nova, that is where I, Danton J. William Domike(the jay stands for Jay) (call me Tony) come in. I will be teaching a drop-in how to make a comic class. It will be in the same theme/style of the Stefan class that shares the same name. Basicaly how to make comic books/strips, doing collaborative comic strips, and I will try to work in making digital comic strips. But please don't apporach me and ask how to draw Spiderman or any other super hero, I will stare at you blankly, and give you this...
Except it will not be Spiderman at all, it will probaly be robot, or a zombie. But my point is that this will not be a class on how to <b>draw</b> a comic so yeah, don't ask.

Here is the Info
-Time 1:00 (durring bridge week)
-in the Drama (lama?) room
-Try to bring pens, but I can try to gather resources.

Pro-choice rally! (counter protest)
Alright, so I just got this e-mail, posting it in full here:

EMERGENCY ALERT! Stand Up for Reproductive Rights!
Counter picket at an anti-abortion rally
Sat., Jan. 28, Westlake Park, noon

Dear defenders of women's rights,

Radical Women learned today that anti-abortion forces associated with the "Silent No More Awareness Campaign" will hold their annual rally at Westlake Park this Saturday from noon to 1:30pm. We feel it is important that their presence is countered, as in other years, by a visible and vocal defense of reproductive justice.

Please join abortion rights defenders at noon on Saturday, January 28, outside the coffee kiosk at 400 Pine Street, across the street from Westlake Park. Bring your friends, picket signs, and favorite chants!

Our presence will show that Seattle supports women's right to control their own bodies. For more information, call (206)722-6057 or 722-2453. Please spread the word!

In addition, please follow the link to pressure Senators to support the call for a filibuster. It's now or never time on the Alito nomination! http://www.SaveTheCourt.org/AlitoFilibuster

In struggle,

Christina López
Seattle Radical Women
