Things to Do Once You Crash on Homecoming

I don’t know about you guys, but this whole “school” thing is already getting me down.

You can find me at any one of these locations.

If you’re feeling the burnout like me, count yourself lucky – we have something to look forward to!!!

HOMECOMING

Anyone who’s spent the last few weeks getting a little ~too~ familiar with Lau’s “basement prison” interior design aesthetic, I’m with you. School sucks.

But you know what doesn’t suck? NOT spending time in Lau. Preferably, at the “football game” known as Homecoming.

When you see your friend at a party and go in for a hug but you both just fall down.

“HoCo,” as they call it at schools with football stadiums rather than bleachers, is like Christmas — it only comes once a year. So, if you find yourself being a little too ~heavy-handed~ on Saturday, don’t fear. We’ve got you.

*Plz* keep reading for a list of 4E’s top recommendations for what to do once you inevitably crash on Homecoming.

NOTE: These guidelines are ONLY for the 21+ Hoyas out there! Make good choices, kids!

Food

When hunger strikes after a long day of partying, the consequences can be disastrous. Smart Hoyas know that in order to avoid situations like these, one must come prepared. Please whip out your phones and input the following information into your speed dial:

Domino’s: (202) 342-0100

Mai Thai: (202) 337-2424

Wingo’s (RIP, but they still deliver from their new location): (202) 338-2478

Fire up your UberEats. Make a trip to Safeway and stock up on snacks. By all means, do whatever you need to do to keep your friends from being torn apart by their conflicting, relentless cravings.

God, Jan, no one else wants donuts. You’re the only one who wants donuts.

Pro Tip: A stroll to Chick-fil-a never (really) hurt nobody.

Film & Television

Homecoming is about indulgence. You could even call it Treat-Yo-Self Day. So, if you and your friends choose to settle down in front of a laptop screen after a long day of debauchery wholesome fun, try treating yourself to:

Troy

Also known as three hours of shirtless men (Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom… need I say more?) prancing around in togas, doing battle/sword stuff. The highest of entertainment.

Bend it Like Beckham

Do you ever just crave a feel-good movie with inspiring messages about female empowerment, family traditions, and love? This movie is soooooo underrated.

Harry Potter

Homecoming in a nutshell.

Nothing gets me in my feels like a good old HP marathon. Throw on your jammies, sip some butterbeer (hot cocoa works too), and prepare to be transported back to a magical land of childhood innocence that is far, far away from the ~activities~ you were engaging in just hours beforehand.

Zoey 101 (or any Nickelodeon/Disney Channel throwbacks)

Me if anyone so much as mentions the words “Tito’s and lemonade”…

These are crowd-pleasers. Need I say more?

Miscellaneous Nonsense

If all else fails, there are only two things you can do:

Hit the books.

I wish I had recommendations for you, but I can’t remember the last time I read a non-YA book that I actually liked. Don’t underestimate the fun that can be had reading a book out loud to your friends, preferably upside-down/backwards while under the influence of really great writing.

Just lie down.

Floors are your friends. Show them some love this Saturday, whether you’re truly tired or want to protest against your friends for entering yet another sweaty Henle. This is the simplest, most cost-effective recommendation we at 4E could think of — 11/10 would recommend.

Thank you for sticking with me through this list of *highly curated* content. Have fun and be safe! ☺︎ hOyA sAxA ☺︎

8 Underrated Animated Characters

With everyone talking about the premiere of Incredibles 2, I can’t help but wonder if it’ll beat the iconic original film. Edna Mode’s quirky yet relatable character? The memorable yet slightly overused line: “Where’s my super suit?!” Samuel L. Jackson in cartoon form? Need I say more?

Yet despite the hype of the upcoming sequel, the original Incredibles has been slept on. For 14 years. With this in mind, here are some more ~fabulous~ animated characters who have also failed to gain the recognition they deserve:

1. Kronk (Emperor’s New Groove)

Who doesn’t appreciate this friendly giant, who not only PULLS THE LEVER, but also can cook some delicious spinach puffs and fondue. Though he is a loyal evil assistant, let’s not forget the little devil and angel that appear on Kronk’s shoulders every time he faces a moral dilemma. Or his ability to communicate with animals (specifically squirrels).

Fun Fact: There’s apparently a show dedicated to Kronk called “Kronk’s New Groove”. Although I’ve never watched it, I’m glad the TV community is paying respect to the real star.

2. Shego (Kim Possible)

If you didn’t have a childhood crush on this super villain, you’re lying. Hot-tempered, sarcastic, and slightly offensive, she’s not much different than the typical SFS student who is accused of having a ‘light’ core curriculum. In addition, Shego is voiced by Nicole Sullivan, who not only was in Meet the Robinsons, but also came in second place on the show Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition.

3. Gill (Finding Nemo)

Leader of the Tank Gang, Gill seems intimidating at first, but you soon come to love his integrity and the sacrifices he makes for Nemo. Also Gill means “mucus” in Polish. #TheMoreYouKnow #BilingualReaccsOnly

4. David (Lilo & Stitch)

As Nani once wrote in her diary, David not only has fancy hair, but also has a nice butt. He supports Nani despite being friendzoned multiple times AND is an amazing surfer– what more could you possibly want in a modern Disney prince?

5. Danny Phantom (Danny Phantom)

Black hair and blue eyes. Need I say more?

6. DW (Arthur)

By far, the most SAVAGE character in animated history, and she doesn’t even know how to read yet. Probably one of the most annoying sisters I’ve ever witnessed, I can’t help but laugh at all the Arthur memes that have starred her in the past year. Did you know the voice of D.W. is actually a boy? Actually, boys plural (6 male actors alternated voicing Arthur’s little sister).

7. Mushu (Mulan)

Who can forget his intro where he just magically arises from the ground in a cloud of red glittery smoke? Personally, I don’t think Mulan would be the icon she is without Mushu’s help; after all, he made her breakfast before her training session and was the best personal cheerleader of all time. Also, he’s a little lizard with fire powers. That’s pretty cool.

8. Chip Skylark (Fairly OddParents)

How can someone who sings about dental hygiene be so universally loved? 10-year-old me and current 19-year old me lives for his single gold piercing and ~swaggy~ dance moves. Let’s not forget that Chip Skylark is also secretly poor and a super humble guy. Not exactly your typical MSBro.

Alas, these are only a few of the animated characters who have long deserved the clout that has mistakenly been given to overrated characters like the Minions from Despicable Me (why are there THREE movies about them?) or the snowman from Frozen.

The members of 4E highly suggest you watch Incredibles 2, that is, if you want to stay ~cinematically cultured~.

Childhood Stars Comeback?

Lizzie-McGuire-Disney-Channel-Shows-

With all these surprise albums and collaborations coming out, we at 4E have noticed that we’ve been having a hard time keeping up with who’s who in the music world. Take FKA Twigs, for example. She has suddenly blown up and all we find ourselves doing is scratching our heads at the mention of her name.

Times like these are when we wish we were back in the glory days of the early 2000’s, when we all listened to Hannah Montana on our Disney Mix Sticks and ‘N sync on our Hit Clips.

mix stick hit clips

 

To ease your confusion with the present day music scene, we’ve decided to make a list of our top 5 childhood music stars that we wish would make a comeback. Hopefully this list will also help ease the fact that Disney Channel and Nickelodeon are no longer the same channels they used to be. #TBT

  1. Aaron Carter. This little stud first gained popularity because of the fact that his older brother Nick Carter is in the Backstreet Boys. His first studio album had the hits “I Want Candy” and “Aaron’s Party (Come and Get it)” that had us all bouncing in our seats and jamming to our Walkmans. We miss how it felt to be carefree kids, going to house parties at 10 years old that we thought were so cool. The feeling of pure ignorance as a kid is what made Aaron Carter so successful, and as college students struggling through midterms, I’m sure we could all use some of that right now. aaron carter
  2. The Cheetah Girls. Who didn’t love this dynamic pop group? Their songs were filled with messages of girl power and staying true to yourself, and their movies took us on adventures through Spain and India. Everyone had the lyrics to “Strut” and “Cheetah Sisters” memorized (we’re sure you still do) and in all they were just a feel-good group that reminded us all that we have friends that have our backs through the good and the bad.the cheetah girls
  3. Aly and A.J. If you don’t remember this duo, you’re lying. These are the pop princesses that brought you “Potential Breakup Song” and “Chemicals React” (which we still jam to these days) and were part of the few Disney Channel stars that could actually sing and were not just thrown a recording contract for being on a hit T.V. show. We loved them for their electro-pop influences and their ability to act as well (remember Phil of the Future?) and we need more of their sassy/sweetness in our lives.Aly_&_AJ_-_Insomniatic
  4. Jesse McCartney. This hunk was in the hearts of all teenagers who had a radio/eyes during the 2000’s. He appeared in shows like Summerland and All My Children, and was in the boy band Dream Street, but really captured our hearts when he went solo and released his first album “Beautiful Soul”. This album won him multiple Kids Choice Awards (throwback!) and paved his Disney career until 2007. We miss his dreamy eyes and gorgeous hair and wish he would call our pretty faces sometime. jesse mccartney
  5. Lizzie McGuire/Hilary Duff. The epitome of the 2000’s was without a doubt, Lizzie McGuire. The TV show and following movie inspired preteens and adolescents everywhere to follow your dreams and that it was okay to have an alter ego that was a cartoon character. Her music was equally uplifting, and we still haven’t gotten over the fact that Paolo set her up to be embarrassed in front of Italy. But who else would show us what dreams are made of?Lizzie and Isabella

There you have it, our wishlist for surprise albums from our (and your) favorite artists of the early 2000’s. Feeling nostalgic yet?

Mastering the Movie Night

Movie Night

Every now and then, even the most self-possessed Georgetown students will come to find themselves at the point where they just. Can’t. Even. Whether you’ve been #raging every night or you’ve spent so much time on Lau 5 that you’re starting to develop a fluorescent glow (’cause you know, here on the Hilltop we’re all about the Work-Hard-Play-Hard), what you really need is a healthy dose of downtime. Here at 4E, movie nights are one of our favorite ways to chill out after a long week on the daily grind – and we’re bringing you a list of the best ones, and how to do them right:

The Binge Night

Everything you do on Binge Night must be to absolute excess. Bury yourself in a mountain of pillows, then pick a classic series like Harry Potter or something absurd thrilling like Saw (things really pick up around number IV) and watch it through from start to finish. If you don’t consume at least 4,000 calories – I’m talking a large Domino’s pizza, a pint of Ben & Jerry’s per person, all the Wisey’s cookies (even oatmeal raisin) and a never-ending supply of cool ranch Doritos – you’re doing something wrong. Binge Nights typically end around 4 in the morning, when the last kid standing feebly finds the remote under one of his snoring friends, hits mute and promptly passes out on an empty box of donuts.

Also recommended: the Bourne series, The Fast & The Furious, Mission: Impossible, Transformers, Twilight, Lord of the Rings, the Scary Movies, James Bond

The Disney Night

Coming home to some milk & cookies and a Disney movie is just as satisfying after midterms week as it was back in the 90s after an arduous half-day at kindergarten. Take a trip down memory lane with a timeless pick from the Disney vault like The Lion King, or stay young and hip with the more recent hits like Up, Tangled, and Frozen (FYI: resisting Frozen does not make you cool/hipster). If you’re not into cartoons, there are plenty of awesome Disney Channel Original Movies (#tbt to the kids jumping on the blue film roll) that will make you wish you were ten again, when all your favorite celebs had yet to check into rehab.

Also recommended: Finding Nemo, The Parent Trap, Pocahontas, The Cheetah Girls, High School Musical, The Aristocats, The Lizzie McGuire Movie, Holes, The Princess Diaries, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Jungle Book

The Girls’ Night

Girls’ night is romantic comedy central. Grab your closest galpals, bust out the facemasks and copies of Cosmo, and snuggle up to a three-hour gossip sesh/pity party set against the dulcet tones of Dirty Dancing or Sweet Home Alabama. As awesome as Girls’ Night is, tread with care: it will inevitably leave you at best bemoaning the lack of Brads/Leos/Channings in the general DC area, and at worst texting that only semi-attractive kid in your Calc class with the hopes that he might be the Aaron Samuels to your Katie Cady Heron.

Also recommended: The Breakfast Club, Bridesmaids, Step Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, She’s the Man, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, John Tucker Must Die, Pretty Woman, Friends With Benefits

The FTB Night

The male equivalent to the RomCom fest, #ForTheBoys Night involves spending some quality time with your number one bros – no chicks allowed. Testosterone levels will be through the roof once everyone starts doing the Matthew McConaughey Wolf of Wall Street chant in unison whilst snacking on beef jerky.

Also recommended: the Batman trilogy, The Godfather, American Pie, Scarface, Superbad, Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, Animal House, Wedding Crashers, Remember the Titans, Gladiator

The Cultured Night

Cultured Night is the perfect opportunity for you and your friends to revel in the fact that you’re fancy and intellectual, because hey – you’re in college now! Gather round an obscure indie (or something slightly more mainstream) flick like The Grand Budapest Hotel, and dive into some fair-trade organic Trader Joe’s popcorn (the Kettle Corn is seeerrrriously good). You don’t really gets what’s going on, but you still feel really impressed with yourself because would you look at this artsy movie I’m watching!? If you’re feeling really brave, you might just even go foreign. Did someone say Sundance?

Also recommended: Chef, Rust and Bone, Her, The Master, El laberinto del fauno (Pan’s Labyrinth), Mean Streets, Le scaphandre et le papillon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly)

The Wine Night

For those who are 21 and up, wine can be the perfect complement to a movie night at home.  Just as you drink different kinds of wine with different meals, so too must you carefully choose your grape in accordance with your featured genre.  That said, there is one specific wine-movie pair that stands out above the rest: Reds and Romance.  Let’s face it – it’s a cliché for a reason: crying hysterically over Titanic is so much more rewarding if you’re a little (or a lot) drunk.

Also recommended: The Notebook, Romeo & Juliet, The Last Song, Casablanca, The Fault in Our Stars, The English Patient, P.S. I Love You, The Time Traveler’s Wife

(Note: The principles of the Wine Night can be successfully applied to any of the nights mentioned above).

So those are some of 4E’s tested and approved movie nights. But feel free to gather your friends, grab some snacks and begin your own special movie night tradition!

Halloween Movies for Easily Scared Souls

Halloween Movies For Easily Scared SoulsIt’s that time of year again, Hoyas. I’m not talking about the fall, though you have already been warned about them. I’m not talking about the never-ending midterms, and I’m not talking about the equally frightening flu season. Instead, this special part of October marks the beginning of three consecutive, holiday-filled months, starting with Halloween. For some, Halloween signifies a time filled with tricks and terror, a time when your fear consumes you and a time when you relish every moment of it.

However, there are those of us who prefer the treats rather than the tricks during this fall holiday season. We are people who hold the blanket close to our faces during each Halloween horror film that our friends insisted on watching. We are the people who then proceed to not sleep the next few days thanks to the enduring images of a vengeful dead (and/or psycho) girl or a physically impossible monster that suddenly seems a little less impossible because a movie just made us believe it actually exists. If you can relate to any or all of these moments, take comfort in knowing that during this (occasionally difficult) holiday season there are still some movies out there for you. Here’s a couple of movie suggestions that will get you in the Halloween spirit without keeping you up in terror for all of November:

1. The Addams Family Da da da dum (snap, snap). Follow the lives and quirky dynamics of a family that embraces the ghoulish side of life. Let’s be honest, who does not love them a little bit of Cousin It?

2. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Never have I found a reason not to watch a Peanuts show. Also, this movie has one of my favorite scenes ever – the one where Linus writes his letter to the Great Pumpkin.

tumblr_mu0bpvs3M31shef9yo1_500

3. The Harry Potter Series For most, these movies encompassed most of our childhoods (maybe even now, too). Nonetheless, Halloween provides an especially accommodating atmosphere for wizards and their magical world. Fair warning, though, you may experience a relapse of these feelings.

4. Hocus Pocus A Disney channel classic, this movie follows the return of some 17th century witches, who you love to hate and hate to love, into the 20th century.

5. The Nightmare Before Christmas Is this a Halloween movie if it has Christmas in it? Oh well. Throw in skeletons, ghosts and pretty much anything created by Tim-Burton, and your Halloween quota has been filled.

6. Casper I’ll let this speak for itself (What could be cuter?):Casper-the-Friendly-Ghost-Pictures7. Ghostbusters Watch the entertaining journeys of the recently fired Drs. Venkman, Stantz and Spengler as they rid Manhattan of all its ghosts and demons. Who ya’ gonna’ call?

With Halloween less than a week away, feel free to suggest any one of these classic films that not only embrace the holiday spirit but let you enjoy it too! Happy Halloween Hoyas!

Miley Mayhem and “Can’t Stop” Controversy

Miley

Miley Cyrus isn’t one to stray away from polemics. Over the course of her short career, Miley has caused more than one mouth to drop with her wild partying and rebellious antics. Most recently, she’s been spotted twerking with Juicy J and hanging out with Justin Bieber and his leopard print Audi. And just to top things off, Miley’s released a shocking new single – and let me just say, “We Can’t Stop” definitively lives up to her recent Disney-sweetheart-turned-bad-girl reputation.

From the first few seconds of Miley’s new tune, it’s clear that Miley isn’t looking to revert to her more innocent days. The song begins with a voice-distorted, in-your-face, YOLO-generation statement: “It’s our party/ we can do what we want… we can say what we want… we can kiss who we want.”

As the song progresses, Miley makes it obvious that for her and her generation, nothing is going to change. “We can’t stop/ And we won’t stop,” she sings, referring to the over-the-top party lifestyle of her millennial age group. But it’s not the lyrics about partying that are causing “We Can’t Stop” to garner such a mixed response from listeners. (After all, we already know that Miley “Can’t Be Tamed.”) Rather, it’s the salvia-smoking singer’s drug references that are creating quite the sharp reaction to her newest single.

Ms. Cyrus isn’t afraid at all to bring drugs into wild nights of which she sings. “La dee dee da dee/ Dancing with molly,” she croons, followed later by, “Everyone in line in the bathroom/ Trying to get a line in the bathroom.”

First MDMA and then cocaine? I didn’t see that one coming, Miley. Heck, even Kendrick Lamar is a bit shocked.

What do you think of Miley’s drug references? Think that it’s “her mouth and she can say what she wants to?” Or do you want it all to stop? Take a listen to the new single below and give us a holler in the comments!

The Eight Disney Characters You’ll (Possibly) Meet on the Hilltop

the hoya disney

Co-authored by Nicole Jarvis and Lindsay Lee

We at The Hoya have often been told that our logo slightly resembles that of Walt Disney’s. While Healy Hall and Lauinger Library aren’t necessarily Cinderella’s Castle, life at Georgetown can sometimes be its own little fairytale. What if some of your childhood heroes were your peers on the Hilltop?

Ariel


Ariel is a busy girl. She wakes up early for swim practice every morning, and sings with the Georgetown Concert Choir in the evenings. She only studies on Healy Beach Lawn and is always looking for fun little trinkets down on M Street. She’s the token ginger in any friend group and takes all of the jokes in good humor.

Belle

belle

Belle spends a lot of her time working as a coordinator for DC Reads, but spends the rest of her days camped out on Lau 1 while she studies away. She’s an avid writer for The Hoya and is always walking around with a book, which occasionally causes her to bump into things. She likes to keep to herself, but when she wants to talk to someone, she calls her dad back at home. Many guys on campus have their eye on her but think she can be rather weird at times.

 Cinderella

cinderella

Cinderella spends the majority of her time working in the various Corp locations. Her home service is Midnight (Mug), where she makes the best pumpkin lattes. She works incredibly hard and doesn’t ask for much. She also doesn’t mind the gigantic campus rats. She loves the anonymity of Coffee Prom invitations, alway hoping to get matched up with that barista she’s had her eye on. When she has free time, she likes to go shoe shopping in West Georgetown.

 Hercules

hercules

Hercules (Honey, you mean HUNK-ules) spends the majority of his time in Yates, gettin’ swoll and hitting up Rhino on the weekends where he has no problem picking up the ladies. He’s secretly a huge softie who wants to be seen for more than his (ridiculously massive) biceps. It’s hard to meet his father’s expectations, so he studies pretty hard, even though people don’t think that he can go the distance here at Georgetown.

 Pocahontas

pocahontas

Pocahontas is the President of Outdoor Ed and loves taking hikes and spending time outside. Every Wednesday she volunteers at the Farmer’s Market, helping to sell organic products. She has no problem with the overly friendly squirrels and cat-sized rats on campus, for she is a friend to all the animals. She also loves to go kayaking on the Potomac, singing the entire time.

 Gaston

gaston

Gaston is the pledgemaster for B-Frat and the life of the never-ending party. As the popular tune goes, “No one chugs like Gaston, no one thugs like Gaston. No one drinks till they’re out cold on the rug like Gaston.” He doesn’t appear to have ever done any homework, and nobody is quite sure how he is still a student, yet there he is — drunk on a Tuesday trying to start a fight with a freshman and trying to convince people that they’re pronouncing Gaston Hall incorrectly (“It’s Gaston not Gaston”).

Aladdin

aladdin

Aladdin is most likely to be spotted cruising around campus on his skateboard, which he calls his “magic carpet” or exploring the campus looking for the vast maze of tunnels that supposedly connect all the school’s buildings and the White House. He’s a dedicated character actor, and can always be spotted performing with the Children’s Theatre group or in the most recent department production. He’s never seen without his best friend Abu, who has put his natural pantomime skills to use as a member of the GU Improv Association.


Tarzan

tarzan

Tarzan may be an exchange student with a not-so-firm grasp on the English language, but he’s found ways to get around it and attract the ladies. He hasn’t quite figured out how to dress for the weather in DC — which is much colder than his home — but it’s part of his charm. He loves to take girls on dates to the National Zoo (the gorillas are his favorites) and they quickly fall for him and his love for animals.
