Priceless. The titles make this site.
The stupidity of the quote just screams Arts major.
maybe an Arts major at Western.. but watch your back, Arts make the world go round!..idiot
"Arts make the world go round!"True. That gas doesn't pump itself, you know. And we'd all be nowhere if we didn't have ditch diggers and hair stylists.
8:46 = asshole.haha...i bet you go to ivey. get off your corporate high-horse. the market could crash and you could be digging ditches too
I'd take a degree from Ivey any day over some piss-worthless Arts degree.
If we don't have hairstylists and telephone sanitizers, we could suffer the same fate as the Golgafrinchans!
...why is everyone on this site so hateful?Oh, I forgot: the internet is serious business!
it's hateful because people are arrogant pricks.THAT'S what makes the world go round.
i like artsscience is so pompous and pious and all that garbage. I am in a mix of both. and let me tell you... arts is a hell of a lot better.
...because it's easy?
...because it requires thinking, not just memorization :P
arts requires thinking? or doodling?you know the science.
no, THINKING....and literacy skills.
"art require doodling"HAS ANYONE HEARD OF JULLIARD? Fuck you people are such arrogant assholes. and you live in CANADA. in ONTARIO. and go to a school I've never even heard of.Do you have ANY idea what competition in Music is like? Maybe not, since you're all such small-minded pricks.I'm with you, the Arts degrees at the school you're at must be much easier to get your hands on, then say, a degree in science.but you seriously need to NOT just think of degrees. think of everything you look at.advertisements. billboards. food lables.think of everything you listen to.music? yeah. that requires thinking.I practice 9 hours a day.. so fuck off to all of you whole think a day in the life of an Arts major is easy, but that could just be because I'm at Julliard.Those wasting their time at Western to get a degree in music are wasting their life.what do you want to BE?a teacher who makes.. 30 bucks an hour?shitty, man. maybe you should've re-considered your major before your life turns minor.
^ holy fuck you're a dumb shit. here in CANADA an arts degree does not just mean "FINE" arts you arrogant julliard hag. the doodling comment was not a just a jab at your music, visual art, dance or drama buddies at *gasping in amazement* julliard, the doodling comment meant that arts courses - considered in CANADA to be such courses as english, classical studies, philosophy, anthropology, etc. - are easy and hence students have the leisure of doodling during class. maybe before posting on an *unknown* school's blog you should remove your head from your ass and not perpetuate the myth that americans are dumber than rocks.
I don't know how a harmless joke about arts students got so hostile. Everyone knows that after graduation, arts majors flip burgers, engineers drive taxis, science majors are awkward loners that can't get dates, while business majors end up with broken families and kill themselves when the stock market crashes.
Hey "HAS ANYONE HEARD OF JULLIARD?", do we have less of a right to be arrogant assholes just because we live in Canada? What's up with that? Maybe if we went to a big fancy American university our arrogance would be more acceptable. And I don't even believe that you go to Juilliard because you can't even spell it. But maybe that's just because you're in arts.
monique:it's OKAY to be jealous! :)I don't think "HAS ANYONE HEARD OF JULLIARD" was far fetched.Being in visual arts here at Western, I totally know what he/she means.We get in easily, we sit in class an "doodle", we write a bunch of BS essays, and we get a degree.I cannot even fathom the competition and hard work students who go to Juilliard must go through.I really don't think he/she was being an arrogant "fancy American" school-ite. He/she was just telling the facts about the comparison between Juilliard Arts (music, in this case), and Western Arts.I think we all need to take a fucking pill.
Dear 10:40I'm not an American, I live in BC. You seriously think that only Americans go to Juilliard?You're a typical science-based Canadian, aren't you?Most of the students at that school are from China, Japan, and Russia.LOOK before you LEAP.
You're from Canada and you've never heard of UWO?
12:02 is a pianist.
8:14you are brilliant.. yes I am (12:02) a pianist.I don't understand how 7:04 could find this brilliant, though.Seeing as 7:04 has no clue who I am.UWO isn't exactly Canada's most prestigious Universities..
^hey dumbass, is it possible that 7:04 thought that 8:14 was using a play on words? and in lieu of an actual pianist, meant penis, and thereby a dick because you can't recognize UWO as a leading school in terms of research and development.Not the most prestigious? maybe not, but are you comparing it to UBC? 'cause if you are, you would be horribly mistaken. Or do you just get all of your information from biased Toronto news magazines? you've likely never even been to Ontario. And, not to discredit the quality of education that you may get from Juilliard, but other than a job as a professional musician, how much further does your degree get you than any other degree offered at Western?
9:37, get off your juilliard high horse, you'll be playing a key board on a street corner soon enough. maybe that will humble you.i found 8:14's comment "brilliant" because it was a PUN on you being a PENIS.*still LMFAO at you*- 7:04
Can't imagine how lame Juilliard students are. I'm sure such a prestigious school loves the publicity it's getting here.
9:37"UWO isn't exactly Canada's most prestigious Universities.. "Funny, I seem to remember us ranking #1 for larger universities (according to the globe)or # 3 (according to Maclean's)...I know that these surveys have their flaws but our school is hardly second-rate....I'll be the first to say that Julliard is a wonderful school and that you should be proud of yourself....but please do a bit of research before you slag other people's schools needlessly.
^ *coffee house snapping for 12:13*well said.
Doesn't Western have one of the best music programs in Canada? I remember my friend having to have a bunch of ridiculous credentials just to apply...Seems weird a Canadian so passionate about music wouldn't know that.And to those that say science requires just memorization, that's just a stereotype. Try getting by first year calc or physics based on memorizing the formulas. You get cheat sheets with them on it in some physics classes. People still fail, since the important part is the critical thinking.-science kid with a philo minor
6:59 / 12:02 doesn't live in BC or go to Juilliard... just some kid from Washington State who's seen Save the Last Dance too many times.
^ BAHAHAHA... and if their musical talent is anything comparable to julia stiles' dance abilities, we can understand why 6:59/12:02 is NOT at juilliard.
I don't understand why anyone goes to school for a music degree. Even if it is at julliard. If you have talent you might make something of yourself, I don't see how a degree helps.
5:40 - I'm not a music major (or even remotely close to being musically inclined), however, isn't the point of ANY degree to hoan your craft? There's always something to be learned, and I would think that the same would be true for a music degree. The point is to learn more and get better -- this would hopefully make natural talent even BETTER and perhaps increase the chances of obtaining a career in music or any other of the fine arts.
Very true, 5:55. I'm not in music either (I actually have a degree in Arts, oh no!), but symphony players do make big bucks, particularly if they are talented enough to land first chair in their section. So it's more than just some frivolous degree. It's just as viable a career as business or science. I mean, if you can really excel on a feasibility project, or well thought out lab experiment, or maybe have a shot at landing a career as a professional editor, or writer, why wouldn't you do what you love, rather than sticking to what's "practical"? Perhaps some people were forced into more "practical" disciplines, and have some residual bitterness? Take a look in the careers section of the paper, sometime. Businesses do hire arts kids as well.
I have solved the puzzle: the girl with the dark hair is pregnant, and her doctor told her not to bleach her hair an inhuman shade of blonde anymore, so this quote DOES make sense.
ooops, i forgot to add that the bleach or chemicals in the dyes probably causes problems for the baby, so that is why she said it.Or, blonde hair and Ugg boots leads to promiscious sex, leading to pregnancy. She has learned her lesson, and will no longer bleach her hair or sport cute boots anymore :)

People say stupid and hilarious things at UWO all the time. We're here to make sure it haunts them forever.
