  1. Protest the Urge to Protest

    February 18, 2011 by Tommy Titan

    Dear Tommy,

    With all these protests in the news recently, I’ve been thinking about whether or not we as Wesleyan students should be banding together to enact change on campus—like demanding that Friday classes be canceled when the weather is nice like this or demanding that professors give out extra credit for fashion sense.  What do you think?

    –PRO TESTER

    Dear TESTER,

    I appreciate that you’re staying up on your world news, and I admire your revolutionary spirit.  With your penchant for riling up the masses—and your keen sensitivity to the aesthetic—I might suggest you consider not the role of mutineer but instead focus your energy on mascotting.  While the job here is taken, there is always work for someone with your skill set.  You could try a local high school or even fast food chain.  Now get out there and whip a crowd into a frenzy—and know that whether it’s over touchdowns or cheeseburgers, you’ll be doing God’s work.

  2. Anchoring the TV News

    February 3, 2011 by Tommy Titan

    Dear Tommy,

    I’ve heard rumors that a new Titan TV studio is in the works.  They’re supposed to be doing live newscasts, talk shows, and sporting events right to our Titan TV channels (4 & 5).  Is this really happening, and if so, how can I apply to be a news anchor?

    Dear RON,

    It is my understanding that talk of this Titan TV upgrade is in the works.  However, the implementation will depend upon Student Senate approving the necessary funding.  The Titan TV folks have not yet made a formal proposal, from what I can gather, and therefore the changes are still very much up in the air.  If Senate were to approve the funding, Titan TV would add new programming, such as Titan TV News and a talk show called T-Time with Chris Price.  Students would also have the opportunity to host their own shows like they can through WESN.  Personally, I think the campus could use a channel devoted solely to yours truly.  Seriously, am I beautiful?  You just don’t see this kind of bone structure on mascots every day.

    FYI, the contact for more Titan TV information is Rachel Paturi.
