"Police raid original 'Animal House' at Dartmouth"
  • "One of the writers of the 1978 movie, Chris Miller, was a 1964 Dartmouth graduate and a member of Alpha Delta."
  • An interesting generational transition happened in the late sixties. If you graduated in 1963-1967 (the war baby sub-generation), you were completely immersed in the Animal House generation. If you graduated in 1971 or later, you missed that entire chapter of college history. Those who graduated from 1968-1970, early baby boomers like me, were hybrids. I graduated in 1970 - those full-fledged Animal House guys were seniors when I was a freshman. I ended up pledging the local Animal House (I was "The Bear"), only to find it a completely different place when sophomore year started (after "The Summer of Love"). Political activism just about totally took over campus life in the 1967-68 school year, reefer replaced booze as the high of choice, student riots replaced panty raids, radical feminism established a strong foothold on campus, and the Animal House mentality instantly became quaint and retro.

The Weekend Warrior's box office predictions for June 9-11
  • He reasons that Cars will turn in some kick-ass numbers. He places The Omen in the #3 spot, and thinks Prairie Home Companion will crawl in around number seven - which is not particularly good news, because it will be a six team race, but not particularly bad news, since he expects it to take in more per screen than Over the Hedge or DaVinci Code.
  • If his numbers are about right, it will be a good week for the industry, with the Top 12 taking in about $156 million, compared to about $138 last year. That's a 13% increase, and the industry has not seen a double digit increase in the past four weekends.
