Who's got the crazy beats around here?

Drum Circle. In the maintenance cabin down from lower campus. Midnights.

Pretty lonely at the drum circle last night, till I realized I called up a bear out of the woods. Who even knew we had bears?

I'll be back at it tonight. Let's lay some psychic beats down!

I'm in. Had trouble with my school portal last night, but it's back up and running. Bringing my own drum.

Yo Caleb here from psyhigh’s student award winning clone strain and I’m bringing my machines to drum circle tonight and we can amp everybody through my truck, Caleb Jr.

We were all pretty surprised about what happened last night, and it's not fair that pshigh security shut down the drum circle.

The animals are harmless. Especially when they're mesmerized by the beat like that. They've been coming out for nights, slinking out of the woods in their slow procession -- bunnies, skunk, foxes, deer, and even the bear -- and lining up in rows like that because they're attracted to the rhythms which means they LIKE them right?? When do you ever see that kind of solidarity in the woodland creatures? (I mean, when they're not banding together to prevent ecological destruction of the forest, and who can blame them for that?)

But in terms of that other thing our drum circle called up -- that "light being" or whatever they're calling it in the school paper -- it was friendly too, ok? Things didn't get out of hand till those psychic rent-a-cops appeared with their bullhorns and spotlights and killed the generator on the PA system. All that mayhem that happened after was THEIR fault, not ours.

Drum circle will continue in an undisclosed location. And if you're welcome you already know where that is.

We've kept the psycops pretty busy, moving around to a new location every night. But we can't keep the beats quiet, so we'll keep drumming and I guess they'll keep coming. @Lia Bezos suggested we study echolocation and project our drumming ventriloquist-style to confuse our position, so she's been working on that.

Even with all the disruption, we're making better and better friends with the light being. Its name is Terri. But I call it JACK RIP because how how it leaps and streaks through the sky, bounding and dancing. Like lightning in human form. It's always super cool till the psychops come.

Just follow the beat or ask someone who knows, and see you tonight!

Looks like the psychic drum circle has a chance to "go legit" -- we just accepted the Year End Sock Hop gig, so we'll be jammin' in the gym on... whatever night that is. Is it a New Year's Eve party? If so, I should ask @Prefect Alan for more money.

I will say it is hilariously typical (and tragic) that even after saying they want to make the year end sock hop more inclusive, what do they name it? THE YEAR END SOCK HOP!! I mean, names matter, people! It just makes me want to play my drums harder.

Anyway, this means the campus security dorks should start leaving us alone when we practice, which will make things a lot easier in terms taming JACK RIP and the woodland creatures. New recruit @abbi is doing a great job on the bongos, which @Caleb IV808 has rigged up to the psychotronic lighting rig mounted on his truck, Caleb Jr.

Super excited for our first gig! @Ms. Hazeltine said I could join the planning committee too. She said it's her way of saying sorry about the splatterball thing. We're still deciding on the theme, though. @Prefect Alan and some other students are trying to decide *cough* arguing *cough* between a more traditional penguin masquerade and an "imagine the theme" thing? I'm not sure what that is, but it sounds cool.

See ya!

Fantastic to have you on the team. We still haven't settled the sock vs tentacle debate, maybe you could scare them into a decision?
