HELLO EVERYONE!

WE HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT! WE ARE PAST WINTER BREAK AND GETTING INTO OUR NEW SPRING SEMESTER, AND SADLY WHILE UPWARD MOBILITY AND THE MODERN WORKER IS NO LONGER IN SESSION, WE HAVE DECIDED TO SPONSOR ANOTHER FANTASTIC COURSE, CALLED HUMAN BEINGS AND THE ART OF FILM!

IT WILL BE HELD IN THE FLOATING AUDITORIUM AND CO TAUGHT BY TWO AMAZING PROFESSORS, PROF. BRANIGAN AND THE BRAND NEW, PROF. MARTIN. IT WILL BE WORTH THREE FINE ARTS CREDITS, BUT CAN BE USED AS A 2 FINE ARTS CREDIT AND 1 ABSTRACT THOUGHT CREDIT.

WHILE YOU ALL KNOW PROFESSOR BRANIGAN, YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW PROFESSOR MARTIN.

PROFESSOR MARTIN RECENTLY BEGAN TEACHING AFTER, QUOTE,
" I was wandering around miserable in a jungle, trying to make the art I so desperately wanted, when I fell into a swampy river. In this river, I saw this little hot pink teddy bear abandoned by some kid or something. For some reason, existential horror ripped through my soul. I immediately thought, 'there is no such thing as nature anymore,' I laid in the river for several days, staring at the hot pink teddy bear. My crew found me and asked me why I was sitting in a swampy river. I looked down at my clothes covered in swampy river mud and debris and looked back up at my crew. I stared up at Jenny,the person in charge of scheduling, and began to sob. At that point, I knew it was time to make a change,".
BEFORE TEACHING, THEY WERE AN AVID NATURE DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER, WHICH MIGHT PUT THE WHOLE SWAMPY RIVER THING IN PERSPECTIVE.

PROFESSOR MARTIN SAYS, "I love to teach. It is my new passion. You never see little hot pink teddy bears abandoned in swampy rivers, when you are a teacher. You just see a bunch of people, learning,or ignoring you and sitting around. I just love to teach," AND THAT THEY ARE EXCITED TO TEACH THIS CLASS.

NOW, WHAT IS THIS CLASS? IT IS ABOUT FILM MAKING,THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FILM AND CULTURE, SCREEN PLAY WRITING, FILM THEORY, AND HOW TO "MAKE IT" IN THE FILM INDUSTRY. THE CLASS WILL FEATURE SEVERAL GUEST SPEAKERS, INCLUDING AWARD WINNING ACTORS, DIRECTORS, WRITERS, AND PRODUCERS.

THE CLASS HAS FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITIES, INCLUDING THE CHANCE TO CREATE OR STAR IN A FILM WITH YOUR CLASSMATES! THE CLASS WILL END WITH A TRIP TO THE EMPEROR STUDENT FILM FESTIVAL IN JUNE.

THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS JANUARY 20TH AND CLASSES START JANUARY 22ND!
WE HOPE YOU SIGN UP!

Dear Diary,
Something happened today. Something weird, or I dunno, something ominous (?).
I know, I know, I am being vague, but...
I was in the Cafeteria and I was eating with @Cave Girl Claire , when I saw. . .
ugh I sound insane!!! ok ok I am going to say it.
I AM going to say it. (ew caps locks is disgusting)
ok, I will, I will say it.So, I was looking around for @Miranda Ashdove , who was going to eat with us, when I glanced towards to the lost and found section by the coat racks and. . .
and I saw this thing hanging up on one of the racks, it looked familiar for some reason and I thought "Oh, I should see if I know who owns this, so I can return it!"
I walked over and. . .

ugh i am reading too much into this
i just
UGH
ok wow that really is gross, I am not doing it again, like EVER
EWWW !!! ewwwwwwwwwwwww oh my god it is repuls....
ok ok sorry, I am
I am
distracting myself.
I just thought it was fake, it didn't think it was real, at least. . .
At least, It can't be real, sure it felt like that but . . .

it was a pastel rubber suit with a hazmat symbol.
a pastel hazmat suit, like the ones i saw, i mean i thought i saw at the imaginary graveyard
hanging up on a hanger, a custom hanger, on the lost and found coat rack.
why would ...
why would anyone have that?
why would would it oh my god oh my god i have to go

THIS IS A MESSAGE FOR @Carol Song , FROM HER PROFESSOR A. BRANIGAN:

Hi Carol! I am sorry to hear that G-LUV isn't working out. Honestly, I think they are a little overrated, but this is what most radio today looks like. If you want to look at a fully organic or semi-organic station, or even an individualist station (These stations are full of freed robots, escaping their programming and building new lives for themselves).

I am thinking particularly about a Ciudad-Rusa Public Radio (sometimes spelled Ciudadrusa Public Radio), a semi-organic station, who have lots of opportunities.The Robot Empress Podcast, an individualist podcast, who are looking for a production assistant. While both would be a little outside of the curriculum, I think that this might be the direction you want to go in radio.

My roommate, Yekaterina Reina, who works at Ciudad-Rusa, who is always looking for "fresh meat" for the station, so it is nearly guaranteed you would get in. The Robot Central is hosted by two of my dear friends, Russe and Ville, it is a riskier option and definitly harder to get into, but I am willing to put a word in for you!

I am really sorry that you got stuck with G-LUV. I asked @GROTTO G.S.M. INC. to release a post telling students to talk to me, if they disliked their automated assignments for the intern assignment, but it looks like either they decided to go back to their censoring or everyone is too afraid to talk to me!

Anyways, Tell me what you are thinking and I can arrange it.

Thank you
Prof. A. Branigan

HELLO EVERYONE:
WE HAVE A MESSAGE FROM PROF. BRANIGAN :

@Klarya and @Carol Song , Thank you for turning in your work and your grades have been posted! I always love to hear the different perspectives from my students, as well as seeing students so engaged with the content.

As for you, @Klarya ,That is a great explanation and example of the Zarcadian Rhythm. I will definitely use it during class. If you are interested in mind rhythms, you should research gênant patterns. (A great explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCeQLeQiRP4 )

HELLO EVERYONE!!
HERE ARE THE DETAILS FOR YOUR FIRST MAJOR PROJECT WRITTEN BY YOUR PROFESSOR:

Hello Students!
If you have been attending classes, you would know that we have been studying why molecular structure matters, when it comes to your finances. Your project is to either:
i. Complete a 500 word essay arguing either pro or con to the statement, "Adding more molecules to your own physical form is a moral and effective way to open yourself to new investment opportunities.
ii. Create a short five minute presentation or video on the adverse effects of molecule swapping.
-or-
iii. Create a scene with a partner illustrating the difference between molecule swapping and molecular sharing.
This project is due this Friday. You can turn in essays or scripts in your journal or in hard copy during class. Grades are based on the text (or video, slides, etc.) you create for the assignment. Not all students will present in class, for the sake of time, and will be picked randomly to present. If you would like to present, please contact me prior to the due date, so I can make sure you can.

Thank you
Professor Branigan

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ASK THEM WITH #DEARBRANIGAN ,SO WE CAN FORWARD THEM TO HER.
