MITSFS Meeting Minutes
Friday, February 2, 2007
MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Kevin Riggle, President and Skinner, presiding; Christian Ternus, Onseck, recording.
Motion to condemn the minutes for not noting specifically that I wasn't there passes 9-1-6+Spehn.
Motion to ask the Onseck to note that he wasn't there today either fails due to lack of a second.
KR may be able to get out of the lab by taking Concert Choir - this scores Influence Points with the music department.
Motion to prohibit the Skinner for writing any songs about his vast and improbably strong hatred of Fragile Things passes 20-6-2+Spehn.
Motion to end the meetings with song passes 22-13-2+Spehn.
KKB: ``We liberated a bunch of bookends from the CPs last night.''
JSB: ``Wait, you mean Circulating Paperbacks or Campus Police?''
Motion to commend KKB and MKR for defragmenting the bookshelves passes 44-0-2+Spehn.
Moving along. What happened last week?
There was game. It ended. ALC: ``It's always great when you have massacres as part of your political process.'' ESK got executed!
StarCraft is happening soon. It doesn't count as roleplaying, but it counts as game.
Vericon was fun. There was a LARP. It wasn't like Guild - it was more like an excuse to hit people with boffers. There was a lecture by Kay, which we kind of slept through. It was about how he writes fantasy instead of historical fiction for many reasons you can probably figure out by yourself.
A Dramatic Reading from The Sherwood Game ensues. ESK: ``Can someone please shoot me?''
Miller and multiple matrix motions fail by Skinnerial decree.
There was an anti-war protest in Virtual Reality (Second Life). They got so many avatars in one place, the region crashed.
``Skinner still hates Fragile Things, Fragile Things, Fragile Things...''
BING! Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.
Boskone is happening in the Convention Center. It's a very ``booky'' convention.
Next Saturday: British SF marathon at Random Hall. '70s Dr. Who, The Prisoner, etc. ``We don't have to watch all of it.''
Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.
