Do it tonight: Kokosingers Spring Concert

Admittedly, you probably don’t need me to tell you about this. As of right now, over 200 people claim on Facebook that they will be attending. Everyone wants to see a group of sharply-dressed young men arrange themselves on a stage and sing a medley of songs ranging from Top 40 to the classics. It will probably be adorable.

Mostly, I’m here to make sure you remember to get there early if you want a chance at actually glimpsing any of these handsome faces. The show starts, allowing for lateness due to Kenyon time, at 7:00 p.m. in Rosse Hall. You should probably be staking out your seat, oh, right about … now. Good luck.

Happy Last Day of Classes, Everyone

Hopefully, your summer will resemble High School Musical 2 as little as possible.

The day has come. The last day of classes. Whatever else your professors may demand of you, they can no longer make you come to a specific room at a specific time and listen to them talk. Instead, they can make you come to a specific room at a specific time and take a test. Isn’t that much better?

Enjoy your last day and try not to be too tempted to skip, despite the weather. Remember, your professor might tell you something you need to know for all of your finals next week. It’s not over yet.

Liveblog: The Kenyon Hunger Games

Well, Kenyon, it’s already a bloodbath. I’m speaking to you from the steps of Rosse Hall, where I am witnessing a large crowd of dead tributes gathering.

Today, we at The Thrill will, in addition to sponsoring Kenneth Fedorko ’13, be liveblogging The Kenyon Hunger Games. Enjoy.

1:51 p.m.: In all, The Kenyon Hunger Games has raised $286 $316 for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Good work, kids.

1:48 p.m.: BREAKING NEWS: CONOR DUGAN HAS TRIUMPHED. THE THRILL WILL ALLOW HIM TO CONTINUE TO HAVE FRIENDS. In second place, Lauren Katz. In third place, Eddie Baxter (a.k.a. Cato). In fourth place, Nat Katz. Continue reading

The Kenyon Hunger Games: Tribute Roundup, Part III

Well, this is it, Kenyon. The Hunger Games are tomorrow, less than 24 hours away, and time is ticking. Remember, if you’d like to sponsor a tribute, the money will go to a local food bank. Just stop by the steps of Rosse Hall tomorrow anytime after 12:00 p.m. and find the first year in the pink wig (Christine Prevas ’15) to buy your tribute food, water, ammunition, weapons or even extra lives.

With that in mind, I am thrilled (get it?) to announce that The Thrill will, this year, be sponsoring the male tribute from District 13: Kenneth Fedorko ’13, a man of wealth, taste and a ruthless thirst for blood. You may remember him as the evil rapping clown Dollawi$e from Stephen King High School: The Musical!, that suspiciously friendly Community Advisor who sometimes wanders campus or that guy with the Twizzlers in Icarus and Aria. We here at The Thrill truly believe that Kenneth has what it takes to be the victor of the Games: no inhibitions, no shame and no sense of right or wrong.

We are also willing to pour as much money as necessary into ensuring his triumph.

And now, back to Caesar Flickerman with the remaining tributes from Districts 11 through 69. Continue reading

Do it tonight: Dance Team End of Year Concert

Tonight is your last chance to catch the Kenyon College Dance Team’s end-of-the-year show. I don’t know about you guys, but since I can barely walk across a room without tripping over something, I find people who can dance incredibly impressive. This show features guest dancers from Ballroom Dance Club, International Society at Kenyon and Modern Ballet Fusion.

There probably won’t be any real squirrels, but you never know until you show up, right? Just to be sure, get yourself to the Hill Theater at 7:30 p.m. this evening.

The Kenyon Hunger Games: Tribute Roundup, Part II

We here at The Thrill are back with day two of coverage of the upcoming Kenyon Hunger Games. Today we’ll take you through interviews, ratings and Caesar Flickerman’s’s commentary for the tributes from Districts 6 through 10. Tune back in tomorrow for the final tribute roundup and for the announcement about which lucky tribute will receive The Thrill‘s sponsorship this year.

Take it away, Caesar. Continue reading

The Kenyon Hunger Games: Tribute Roundup, Part I

The 2012 Kenyon Hunger Games are fast approaching (this Saturday, April 21 starting at 12:00 p.m., the terrifying brainchild of Christine Prevas ’15 and Zeslie Zaban ’15) and, as ever, The Thrill is here to provide up-to-date coverage of this year’s tributes from all 17 districts, 33 of whom are doomed.

Today we’ll take you through the Gamemakers’ ratings for tributes from Districts 1 through 5 with video commentary from your beloved host Caesar Flickerman (completely unrelated to Thrill columnist Miles Purinton ’12) and their answers to interview questions of our devising. Tune in tomorrow for more tributes, more Caesar and more Hunger Games.
