This is just me having a rant. I am bored of the snow. There is even snow on this freakin’ page! And then I saw this print on FFFound and it just pushed me over the edge. Continue reading

No,this is not a post on our slightly unfavoured neighbour, but about the brand. You may remember me talking about these guys last year after they displayed some of their collection at FS:X. This East London based brand (points for location!) have excelled themselves with their awesome clothes.

So this is just a little blast for you all to check out Kanye West’s new album – “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”.It is incredible.It comes with the thirty-minute movie which I am sure you have all seen, even if it is only a snippet. He seems to have outdone himself, moving beyond his original style coined in the College Dropout, Late Registration and Graduation series. I have put my favourite track up for everybody…its Bon Iver, one of my all time fave chillouts, mixed with Kayne’s genius. Lovez it.



Welly Ball

It’s nearly a week later, but it still feels like the morning after the night before. Yes, Welly Ball was the perfect way to start Raisin weekend once again…

This play is one of Shakespeare’s most well known pieces, and this weekend it will be performed in St Andrews by some of our finest Thespians! Unlike the versions we have seen, this performance is taking the play back to its Elizabethan glory! It will have an all male cast (strictly no females allowed on stage!), with live music, period costume, sword fights, and lots of Shakespearean drama to take you back to fair Verona! The play will be held in Younger Hall, and for the true Globe theatre feel the audience will have the option of “groundling” or “balcony” seats.  There will also be festive refreshments to help you escape the books for a few hours!It looks like it is going to be a really good show – buy your tickets at:

Reading week has passed and hopefully everyone is well rested and revitalised for the rest of the term,that is what people think…but really reading week recharges the batteries for what everyone knows is going to be a manic weekend of parties, dress-up and lots of foam!

Being a third year this year I am extra excited for Raisin, as it is a chance to have a party with my own academic kids and those of my friends too! Everyone seems to be coming up with strategies and planning wild activities that are only socially acceptable for one weekend a year, in one tiny town! This had me wondering how many people know what the tradition of Raisin actually is…so I thought I’d give a brief summery behind the history of the upcoming weekend using the internet as my (not so) trusty source.

The tradition started off as a day where first year students would give a pound of raisins to their academic parents as a thank you for guiding them through the first few weeks of their university life. This was meant to come with a receipt from the parents acknowledging that they would follow through with this gift – failure to do so saw freshers being soaked in the fountain (on  Market St.)…but that has now turned into the foam fight. And the pound of raisins that was meant to be given at a “tea party” has been swapped for something a little more fun…

I wonder how this change in the next few hundred years!

Happy Raisin from Saintandre.ws!
