I would probably say "CHING CHONG CHANG CHOW" and wag my finger at her

dayo, Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:41 (3 years ago) Permalink

my biggest problem with college libraries is that they become these pools of self-flagellators, like it becomes a contest to see who can stay there the longest, and "I've been in the library for the past 2 weeks" becomes this sort of badge of pride, it's rly gross

dayo, Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:47 (3 years ago) Permalink

i was never one of those ppl but i would always advocate to my friends that there should be some credit system for going to the library so that when finals came around you got preferential treatment over ppl that obv only came for finals and were rude ppl that didn't know how to exist politely in a library

do people go to the library just cause its a good quite place to work or are they actually looking at books

ice cr?m, Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:53 (3 years ago) Permalink

they go to meet asian girls

it's like 50-50 right now but will probably be 90-10 within the next decade

iatee, Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:54 (3 years ago) Permalink

i got books like maybe five times in four years and that was only because something i was working on required an actual book source

but so much stuff is just archived on databases now esp if you're in a liberal arts/classic field

J0rdan S., Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

dont they know they can just call asian girls on their phones xp

ice cr?m, Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:56 (3 years ago) Permalink

college libraries are not even that good of a place to study unless you go into one of the attic cages and seclude yourself -- otherwise you could distract yourself for hours just by running into ppl you know and/or people watching

i think most ppl go to just to be like "i got out of the house, which is something that humans do"

J0rdan S., Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:57 (3 years ago) Permalink

how v human of them

ice cr?m, Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:57 (3 years ago) Permalink

it depends on the library, the one at my school goes like 5 stories underground and was super isolated and quiet + no cell phone service

iatee, Thursday, 17 March 2011 02:59 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah there were a couple of spots that i had where i knew i could get an afternoon's worth of quiet but i mostly just went because something about the act of driving to campus made me feel like i was really 'studying' rather than just doing problem sets in btw bouts of xbox

also I like how some white people at the UCs still think we're 'letting in these asians' instead of (at this point) 'letting in white people w/ worse test scores'. any school w/ a sizeable # of asian-americans applying has, in effect, affirmative action for white kids.

i needed a bit of low-level background distraction to really get things done, college library was the perfect environment for me as an undergrad

i prefer a cafe, constant coffee, flirty baristas

there were never enough seats at my college library

three megabytes of hot RAM (abanana), Thursday, 17 March 2011 03:26 (3 years ago) Permalink

i write in cafes; libraries are too quiet or something.

as a history major i spent/spend a lot of time with the microfiche. which was GREAT. because nobody else is ever using the microfiche, even during finals week. and the microfiche machines were next to these huge windows looking out over the girls' soccer field.

difficult listening hour, Thursday, 17 March 2011 03:28 (3 years ago) Permalink

microfilm i mean. not fiche. i don't even know what fiche is.

difficult listening hour, Thursday, 17 March 2011 03:28 (3 years ago) Permalink

microfiche are like large slides with a bunch of pages on them, that you move from side to side and up and down. it can give you a serious headache if you spend a lot of time w/it.

sarahel, Thursday, 17 March 2011 03:30 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah, ok, not those. the rolls. with the little trigger you press and it goes vvvvvvvVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and then you KU-CHUNK it still and try to read 17th-century cyrillic.

difficult listening hour, Thursday, 17 March 2011 03:31 (3 years ago) Permalink

that would be microfilm. for both of those i'd just print out the portions i needed and read them at home.

our microfilm printer cost money and was sort of weird and finicky so i just frantically copied stuff into a notebook. except once when i discovered a totally undocumented room on a totally different floor of the library marked "MICROFILM SCANNING ROOM" and when i opened the door and found the light switch and plugged various things in it turned out to be a closet with a microfilm machine connected to a computer, so that you could dump stuff to PDF. but it didn't work very well, and the whole thing felt wrong anyway, so i went back to the windows.

i like how the racist girl has an "epiphany" midway through the video that maybe these people are trying to get in touch with family affected by the tsunami, and then she has to awkwardly navigate around the fact that she just undercut her own argument.

our library was gross--a disastrous monument to 60s concrete architecture and a place without a single soft surface--so in general i just got in and out asap.

lol i just found out that a couple of local music people i know (one of whom is a white rapper who released an album with 'wigger' in the title) have a podcast called "Is This Racist?"
