Title: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-01-31 14:42:47
Hey there,

Guy and I had the idea to have another party at the SfS or maybe somewhere else, similar to the first party we did. How about last Friday of this semester, being 16th of Feb.?

Some people (including me) have a syntax seminar afterwards, but hey, don't be ridiculous, we can have a party anyways... at least a small one, right before everyone gets back home...

I think the Fachschaft has done some great deal to bring folks from the different courses closer together... we should keep up the good work.

Suggestions?

Regards, Aleks

I'll bring cups, straws, tea lights, and maybe a shaker and a bowl for ice.

After all the money earned is for further Fachschaft events. After everyone's paid out we know how much we can spend. The money has to last till next year's BB-Fest, that's about 5 parties.

If the people with an exam are fine with that day, let's do it.

The date sounds okay to me, there's the weekend in-between, in any case. And if even I'm saying it's okay, who else should object?  ;D I hereby explicitly allow Aleks and Guy to break the glasses left from the candles  *iff* they can find someone who's getting married to honour with that slightly destructive act :D . If I manage to, I can finally bake a CYCake... my last exam is on Thursday, so...

Post by: Anna on 2007-01-31 19:05:01
The question is how many people will still be in Tü. I mean, it would be cool to have a party and I'm all pro but let's just make sure first that we don't spend too much money on a modest Fachschaft party ;)
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-01-31 21:01:13
Well, it's exactly on the day of the last lectures... so maybe most students *should* still be here...
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: johannes on 2007-01-31 23:50:10
I won't. Grandfather's eightiest...

Never mind, you wouldn't find a date suiting me anyways ;-) Go ahead planning :-)
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Kilian on 2007-02-01 13:28:25
The date is fine for me.

I recommend you to call a Fachschaft meeting, so we can make a proper democratic decision to spend money for the party.
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-02-01 14:05:08
Fachschaft Meeting? You're nuts aren't you? When? Except on the weekends maybe...
But - you're right of course, we do need one...

OK, so let's try to find a consensus...
I'm fine everyday from 18:00, but that's also the only possibility.
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Anna on 2007-02-01 17:40:17
I'm sorry to say this, but until Monday in two weeks I'm only free on the weekends and Thursdays after syntax...
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: johannes on 2007-02-01 18:27:08
Thursday after syntax sounds nice.

hi guys
i think we should have this party on the 16th
but i have no idea how to get room 001

we need to deciede everything and inform all
the students at least one week in advance

any suggestions will be nice

guy
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Kilian on 2007-02-05 21:55:42
I can help with informing everybody: I have that fairly large list of students' e-mail addresses. Just tell me what exactly to announce.
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Laura on 2007-02-05 23:19:50
hum... sorry to say so, but I'll probably not be there... no c-y-cake, either, because I'm leaving on Thursday evening... anyway, if there's anything that can be done while cramming for exams at the same time, tell me and I'll gladly help...
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: johannes on 2007-02-06 00:11:15
I also won't come... Two competing events, one my grandfather's eightiest...
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Anna on 2007-02-06 00:26:13
Maybe let us just write who will be there for sure.
I for one thing (that's pretty sad & depressing).

What about the FS-meeting?
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Kilian on 2007-02-06 00:30:32
Could be held spontaneously after tomorrow's tuition fees meeting. Could you take the initiative?

As for the party, it looks like I'll be there for sure.
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Anna on 2007-02-06 00:54:56
I would and I can, the only problem is that my last seminar ends at 7pm and I will not attend the tuition fees meeting. I can come after but in this case the chances of my coming to syntax have dropped another 50%...
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-02-07 03:55:18
OK, it did not happen today, as we аll know... ::)

Then, well shall it happen? It does not need to be big and greedy - just some music, a little food from Fachschaft money (probably?)... and all that happening in the hallways of West Virginia (people that didn't come to the Tuition Fee Meeting are out of luck...) like the last time, so we don't have to apply for a room.

It does not need too much organization, and we need only to tell people to come (especially first semester students and some AS folks).

So, do we agree on Friday, 16th of Feb.?

I could come and I'm ready to do my fair share of work for it.
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Kilian on 2007-02-07 10:05:33
I offer to inform the Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology course next Tuesday.
Who can inform other linguistics courses?

I mean, there's always e-mail, but a bit of physical communication certainly wouldn't come amiss. :)
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Anna on 2007-02-07 17:24:03
I can do math for linguists :) and try to reach AS-first semesters, but as far I got little response from them... I'll keep on trying, though ;)
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-02-07 22:34:23
Yes, very good idea! As I already mentioned: it's a pity that the AS students aren't playing a big role in the SfS's social and cultural activities ;D
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Anna on 2007-02-08 15:02:42
Well, most of them are magister students (THE LAST ROCKSTARS!) and took AS as their minor... I must admit, I'm not that interested in what is going on at the Politikwissenschaft department... Don't go to their parties or meeting or anything (including seminars sometimes ;P)... Anglistik is something else, we have Kemmler ;)
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Armin on 2007-02-08 15:47:59
Guy and I agreed that organizing the party as late as next friday wouldn't be a problem, only two things have to be clarified beforehand: how many people will come, and which room we have. Somebody should tell the Hausmeister.
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-02-08 18:01:27
Let's just have it in the hallway of our beloved Bau...

I'll probably be around here at quite some late hours this weekend, so if I'll see him, I'll tell him :D
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: kubaniguy on 2007-02-09 16:55:29
killian
please send an e.mail to all the students about the party
and ask them to send a reply if they are coming or not
the party will take place on friday the 16th starting at 20:00

Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Laura on 2007-02-10 21:29:01
Revised: I will be there, provided that I've risen from the dead again (I'm not gonna be much alive after two consecutive exams on Thursday... that's also the reason why I'm not going anywhere after all...).
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Armin on 2007-02-10 22:36:16
Come as you are, dead is okay as well. Just give it some gothic touch.

Come
as you are,
as you were,
As I want you to be
As a friend,
as a friend, as an old enemy.
Take your time,
hurry up
The choice is yours, don't be late.
Take a rest,
as a friend,
as an old memory
Memoriieeeeess... yeah...
Memorieesssss ... yeah...

Laura, I'll join you!
We share the same faith. I'll be barely alive.

Let's make it a gothic costume's party! I'll be there as Dracula after a midnight's excessive orgy...

Come
dowsed in mud,
soaked in bleach
As I want you to be
As a trend, as a friend, as an old memory

Memorieeeeees, yeah
Memorieeeeees, yeah... ... ...

Gothic SfS party: Not without me! I'll bring some nice music.

Hope my mantle is here by then... just ordered it online

Dimmu Borgir? They even have a myspace-Site... some nice songs there... ;)

I can offer Anathema, Equilibrium, Katatonia and several other Depressalia... :)

Post by: Anna on 2007-02-12 06:43:53
Well, I have Czech gothic music, but... It's just so damn hillariuos... It'll spoil the whole gothic-feeling! Other than that... I have the full "Dawn of War" soundtrack, even legally. You should ask Charlotte, she's bound to have more ;)

Sweet, I won't have to dress up! ;) Especially, since I'm dying today:
[sing=I guess I'll die on Monday]  ;D
I'm gonna break the psycho
I'm gonna shake up the system
I'm gonna destroy my ego
I'm gonna close my body now

I think I'll find another way
There's so much more to know
I guess I'll die on Monday
It's just my time to go

Another reason for buying a second external hard disk and paying you a visit, Aleks. I have other stuff, rangable from mere depressive sitting around to dancing.

I hope we don't scare the other people off ;)

250GB just waiting for your arrival, Armin :)

Also some 8GB double layer DVDs that should suffice to get everything on 'em... it's not that much... but quality matters most, after all :D

Hum... if donkey's fast enough I'll be able to deliver some more Progrock/metal...
OK... *that* should really scare people off...

Pleeease don't make an SfS Goth party without me!
Let's do it at some point, but I want to be there as well!

I've also got a nice archive of appropriate music here...
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Armin on 2007-02-12 10:38:00
Suddenly all the dark people crawl out of their hide-outs ;) The new Zoo has a gothic and a metal party, first and second friday of each month. Let's try that at some point, but back to SfS business:

How much do we want to spend on snacks and drinks?

What do we need? (Cuba libre, because it's black?)

Who is buying the stuff? (me, because I have a car?*)

Who else will come, and do we require them to wear black?

Btw, we wouldn't have a problem sufficing the BB-Plenum rule, "dass sie nach außen nur in schwarz auftreten".


*) I just repaired some really tricky part of it and called my grand-father right afterwards, because he was always telling me I'll never be able to do that. Now he's betting I won't do the next repair. I'll get the missing piece today at 2, and then I'll try. Doing some (successful, yeah!) mechanics between all the exam preparations is quite nice, you should try that. (And upgrading your PC does not count!)

I used to go there quite regularly, but it sucked pretty much... well that could have changed... but I wouldn't have a bet on it...

Gotta write a parsing exam now, so we're dealing with SfS stuff later on...

Post by: Laura on 2007-02-12 14:30:04
No, people, pleeeeeeeeeeeeease don't! I thought that was a joke! If you really make it Gothic, I'm not coming...  :'(  (unless Armin gets some black wings for me... ;-) ) On the other hand, it's Fastnacht... so we've even got an excuse. Wait and see.

Aleks: where are the semantics scripts you wanted to print out?

Hi folks,

I have two bottles of Cachaza (~7.50€/bottle at ALDI right now) which I'd be willing to contribute if people want to have Caipis. How about it? Does this interfere with your gothic plans? ;-)

Of course, we'd also need limes, sugar and ice, so if someone could provide those it would be nice :-)

Best,
Ramon
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-02-13 04:53:52
Doesn't sound like a bad idea... opinions? Ice is cheap, Limes are not, but we should get away with another 10 €. We Could even demand a "Unkostenbeitrag" (Anna, that's one word for your collection... I'm still looking for those and will send you an e-mail by the time I found a reasonable amount ;) ) of about 0.50 €... how about that?
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Armin on 2007-02-13 09:38:52
Can we produce our own ice this time, or shall we take it from the gas station again?

We should definitely have Caipis. I still have enpugh cups and straws for them.

Hi guys,

Kilian, thank you so much for authorising me! I donno what the problem was, the letters are not in spam...well, ok, now to the topic.

I have some black clothes, but they won't do for a Goth - more like for a hot vampiress, and it will be already a Carnaval-like thing, and Alex hates Carnavals... So I think I'd better enjoy the Gothic music in a bright hippy outfit  ;D

Or, Alex, are you ok with a vampiress  ;)   :P ??

Btw, I have lots of lil cute things for party decor, where and when, unless to the party directly, shall I bring those?

Murr (the cat language, means - "Regards")

Katya

Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-02-14 02:01:02
Well, let's see if it will be exactly a Goth-party... Katya, I don't mind any dressing up as long as you don't get Germanly drunk on beer and scream and shout "Alaaf!" all the time. You probably won't do that, so it's fine :)
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party

Post by: Armin on 2007-02-14 18:32:04
You, if no one else volunteers.

I will go shopping for the party at 17:00, Kaufland. Anybody with me?

At least we should decide on what and how much I shall buy, here.
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Laura on 2007-02-14 21:19:02
I'd come along if you went at 18.00, but till then, I have Phonetische Datenerhebung... Btw, to we have a starting time yet? 8 pm? 7 pm? 9 pm? Midnight?
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Armin on 2007-02-14 21:29:02
If we don't start too Earley, we can go at 6. I can come to the SfS to pick you up.

The party will start around 8pm. We're going to have beer, juice, Caipirinha and some snacks I guess. Wear black if you don't want to be the only one in colors *g*
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: aleks on 2007-02-16 12:59:56
Yes... I'll buy another Hard drive today, and bring my two externals so we'll have enough music :)
I'll be in my office, probably tweaking the new system I'm going to install... so, just drop by, if you want :D
Title: Re: End-of-Semester-Party
Post by: Armin on 2007-02-16 17:11:51
I'll be at the SfS around 7:15. I have bought coke (9l), 1 box of beer (24 bottles), Cachaca (0.7l; maybe Ramon will bring some more), rum (0.7l), water (9l), juices (12l), limes (36) & lemons (4), and snacks (2kg?). I'll later get the ice.

I hope that'll be enough. Not enough for everyone to get drunk, but certainly for everyone having two free drinks and a nice time.

I suggest we collect a "Freiwilliger Unkostenbeitrag" with a "Richtbetrag" of 1€ per drink (non-alc 0.50€). But anyway, the Fachschaft has the money, so why not pay it back to the students? (We might be having some external guests, they could want to pay at least a little.)

I shouldn't start all sentences with I. I'll work on that.

Hey guys.

You missed a ****ing great party... or... maybe you were even there - in this case: you didn't miss it.

It was incredible to see that linguists from our departments can dance ;) but it was a great party, I can't wait for the next one :)

The only thing that really disturbs me though is that there were photos made and that these will land eventually somewhere on the internet...  :|

Which would be the same as doing it without a password. (Did I advertise the ISCL mailing list? ;-) )

If he or she isn't a person of "public interest" the publisher of the pictures is to ask in advance.

One of the scary people lost their shiny earrings yesterday and somehow they ended up with me.

They look like this:
(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d171/pyrocubed/shinies.gif)

If you are the owner of these shiny earrings, or you happen to know whose they are, or you're just bored and want to mislead me into thinking you do, please contact me so I can send them to you.

You have one week to claim them or else I'll be making them my own.  :P

My photos are now at the usual place (http://flickr.com/groups/fst). You'll have to create a flickr account and become a member of our flickr group to see them. Then I suggest you download what you like, because I won't keep the pictures online for too long. flickr's privacy settings are not flexible enough. Does anybody know a good alternative? Maybe a script to run on one's own server?

Shit, this time I didn't make it :/
Oh, well, next time we should make a medieval theme (so that I can wear a sack over my head) or a matrix one (big black glasses) ;)
But I like your other pictures, Kilian!

Thanks! Btw, I forgot my old password and just about everything else, so I created a new account - Kilian, could you delete stella_penelope from the group? That's my old account, and as I can't access it now, it's of little use... I'll delete it as soon as I find out what the password was... anyway... don't laugh at me, please...

Kilian, how about packing it as a tarball or the like then sending it to e-mails (at least mine)?

I would have to sign up for Yahoo to create a Flickr ID :-/

hum... searching Google for "free gallery" doesn't give me the right results ;D...
Well, after this week I could sit down and write something simple in PHP or the like.

Ah no, you won't do more work - you will relax, understood? ;D
I was just asking in case somebody's already familiar with some excellent piece of software. I'm sure I'll just have to look stuff and find plenty of it.
Thing is, I hate sending e-mail to many, especially with attachments. It's not the right medium. You know what? You'll get a tar file. Feel free to redistribute it among the party crowd. :)

Kilian, you're not Aleks' father, are you?

As a student of the last M.A. year I might offer advice on how to relax during studies, but I just realized, that if I finished all courses with exams or papers I would have enough credit points do get a second M.A. (actually that had been my plan: a M.A. in general linguistics alongside my normal CL). So my advice is not really reliable ;)

The photos, btw, are quite nice. What about the others? Jon?

Well... what about some nice little piece of web space with a password that can be e-mailed to people. It is quite strange what kind "solutions" people come up with instead.  ::)
