Review of Tour 2005 DVD

DVD front cover
Tour 2005: The Good, The Bad and the Percussion Section
4 out of 5 stars

Wind Orchestra and Brass Society went on Tour this summer, and for this tour a group of people from the music centre filmed some entertainment for the coach ride.

There were the introductory videos (to figure out who we all were) and "safety announcements" as only musicians could devise! But the main event was "Brasssoc: The Musical".

Some "hardcore" members of the music centre (mainly Owen and Andy, with help from Lu, Juicy and Stu, and the "actors") filmed a 20minute long musical. This was absolutely hilarious and was received with a resounding sucess.

There is also a CD included featuring the Colin Dean Radio Show, the Foreign Language course, and the soundtrack to Brasssoc: The Musical.

I thank everyone involved with this DVD/CD collection. A special mention must go to Andy and Owen, for all their input for the contents, and Owen for putting all the DVD/CD's together before term started. Well done!

Something Comical for Chemists!

This is rather comical:

The Element Song by Tom Lehrer (to the tune of "A Modern Major General).

Skool Dayz!

And so the first "Skool Dayz" event of the year has passed. It was a brilliant night and I must thank all the people who made it so.

Welcome to Warwick Anna and Roisin, both of whom have just arrive from my old school, and heya again Em, who joined last September with me.

It was great to see a decent showing from the 2nd year Chemist's. Helen, George, Aruna, Simon, James (and guest), Alex (and Ai Vy), Sreeya and Paul. See you all nice and early on Monday.

And there were also some Music Centre mates there, Heather and Josie, and one of the MC graduates, Rachel. Nice to see you all again.

Also it was cool to see my mates Sister (and now my mate), Esther, after a large absence, and Kyle, who lived in the flat next door last year. Hope you both enjoyed yourselves!

So, there are my intro's, and onto the night itself.

I arrived on my own (saddo) but soon bumped into people I knew (see above) and stayed with Helen, George, Aruna and Simon for most of it, occasionally nipping away to see everyone else. The dancefloor was, as usual, packed out with hardly any space to actually dance! The drink was flowing freely (which allowed me to notice the increase in drinks prices this year!) and all were having fun.

The night was going so well, until, at around 12:15–12:30, some silly bugger set off the fire alarm, ensuring the end of the night for most people. we were kept waiting outside (in the FREEZING cold) until about 1-ish while they checked the place over for fires, and eventually returned inside to warm ourselves but with our spirits severely dampened.

Finally, just before the event closed, we left and got a Taxi home, and now to sleep.

So, overall, a good night. It was a shame some tart set the alarm off, which changed everyone's mood, but a good time was had by all.

The strangest thing was that the DJ (Ed B…) was receiving text messages from a stranger insulting him and his music choices. I wonder why? Ed and the other guy (no idea what his name is) DJ'd really well, and I don't think there was a really bad tune all night.

So, I'll guess I'll see you all at next Skool Dayz.

Ni' night!
