This spring, Harvard will become home to its own sustainable garden in front of Lowell House, and the Office of Sustainability is calling upon the community to submit names in an online contest that closes today. Ever-conscious of its responsibility to the wider-Plympton area, FM presents some choice names.
1. Your New Breakfast
This garden is supposed to provide “food for students, faculty, and the local community.” We’re guessing breakfast is going to take another hit.
2. The Drunkards’ Buffet
You exit the Fly a little sloppy. The organic sheen of a sustainable tomato plant catches your eye. Free and low-caloric. Yum.
3. The Garden Next to the Phoenix
As in, “Oh...that garden.”
4. The Secret Garden
The name section guy in your English class would submit. We all know the literary reference doesn’t make any sense, but it’s just the kind of BS he loves.
5. The Admissions-Packet Pastoral Garden
Because we couldn’t have a picture of a quaint, student-run garden if we didn’t actually have one. “Hey, we’re sustainable and organic, damn it!”
6. The Garden of Sin
Furrows are so the new stacks. Bonus points if your pick-up line includes a Biblical allusion.
7. The Harvard Garden
When all else fails, just drop that H-Bomb. Never has so much been accomplished with a last resort.
Flag Stolen From Phoenix, S.K. ClubA member of the Phoenix S.K. Club—one of Harvard’s eight male final clubs—reported the club’s flag stolen last week, an act which the member who reported the crime speculated may be related to the clubs’ recruitment season, or its recent wave of publicity from being featured in “The Social Network.”
Singles RoundupWhile OneRepublic adapts to changing musical trends with the insertion of a rabid techno mix, Fall Out Boy furthers their agenda to "Save Rock and Roll" with a new uptempo, threatening track. Jim Carrey speaks up and sings on about the ongoing gun debate in the country with a hilarious track.
Phoenix's New Release Emotionally "Bankrupt!"This album is less personal than some of the group’s more recent releases. Lyrically, the focus is on status-obsessed characters (mostly unattainable women) of the sort one probably meets a lot in the band’s hometown, Versailles, France. The album’s strongest points are its swaggering grooves.
