Air Band: Fall Fest Coverage
The elderly can shuffle?
Matrix bullet-time is real?
Here at LeTourneau, anything is possible…if by anything, you mean the crazy antics of Airband 2011!
This year, as usual, the cafeteria was packed. People were lined up against the walls, standing in the gaps between the tables, and waiting for food in lines that wrapped around tables. If there was someone counting for how many people were crammed into Saga for dinner yesterday, we might have set a record. Or at least impressed the counter.
Fortunately, there was room for everyone (albeit not very much), and the acts this year were immensely creative. It was quite a pleasant surprise to see that groups of predominantly engineering and aviation students could come up with the distinctly “right-brain” sort of originality that was exhibited during yesterday’s performances. We really DO have people crazy enough to get up on the little stage in Saga and serenade us with classic songs and ridiculous dancing, all while being dressed as members of the Greek Pantheon.
When was the last time you watched a real life Mariocart race (complete with banana peels) and not cracked a smile? It’s hard not to laugh at the antics of helpless geeks trying to dance their way into the hearts of extravagantly-dressed girls from their sister floor, or gasp in amazement as time seems to slow down during a staged Matrix-style fight. A standing ovation seemed like the only reasonable response to the hilarious and amazingly choreographed performance of the 3B “Retirement Home” residents.
The week is nearing an end, and it’s clear that only one thing can be said:
Nice job, LeTourneau! Let the show go on!
(And we hope to see you there!)
Ok. Maybe that was three things.
Schedule of remaining events:
Friday, everywhere, Honor Your Monarch Day
Saturday 7:00-9:00pm, at the Belgium House (5520 Country Club Rd.), Dessert Night and Coronation
