“Return Journey” Does Not Go Gently Into That Good Night

December 5, 2014 • 0
I first heard Dylan Thomas’s famed villanelle, “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night,” just a couple weeks ago in the new Christopher Nolan blockbuster Interstellar. Michael Caine, each time the topic of mortality comes up (which is often) beats us over the head with it — “rage, rage, against the dying of the light” — and proceeds to build a giant spaceship.

Sight hateful, sight tormenting! Here they all join in song, and I, cut off from the world, among a species not my own, sting aimlessly hither and thither. Buzzzzzzsdfasdfdsf boolllabulldogs bulldogs, bwewwwww — I cannot enunciate the words. I am cursed with this voiceless buzz.

Had you read it in the news? Had you see it in the sky? It is indeed this time of the year once again, when all the little biddles and jibs bundle up in their big puffy copes for the day of the big one. On to a bus and to the Harver they fly!

We hope the Cantabs are happy with the racket they've got going here. Actually, we hope they are miserable. And given that they go to Harvard, they probably are. It takes a lot more than a brunch buffet to make up for that.

  The Yale Dem “Here, let me fill out your registration for you…” Almost as ubiquitous as their fliers/ sidewalk drawings encouraging you to vote, the self-proclaimed on-campus upholders of democracy were out in force on Tuesday. Of course your vote matters, they say – it just happens to matter a little more if you »

One of the exchanges takes place entirely in Italian; in another, the remaining players spray whipped cream into the speakers’ mouths. It makes no sense. It also makes complete sense.

Let’s get hot tubs! Right? 51 million dollars is definitely enough for at least one Jacuzzi per college, one in Commons, one on Old Campus, four in Woodbridge Hall, three in Bass and maybe even a few private ones for select suites in JE. I know what you’re thinking: That’s a conservative estimate, as the »

Yale has launched a brand-new program to develop the knowledge of the masses with little pickets charmingly called “Elihu Facts,” in a nod to a Yale nickname that nobody actually uses. Reads one Elihu Fact recently put up on Cross Campus: “Unrestricted funds allow Yale to address immediate priorities and develop new programs.” What are »
