Oh hey there!

So I'm one of the aforementioned Spanish majors...the one that spends a good deal of time trying to look like this man.

Anyway, I'm currently doing what I, as a Spanish major, do best - avoiding an essay and reading assignment.

This reading is actually from Rayuela by Julio Cortazar, one of my favorite authors up to this point in my Spanish quest. He is Argentinian, and wrote two fascinating cuentos (or short stories) called "Axolotl" (Grace and I drew hella epic pictures for that one) and "La noche boca arriba." Just a note: I am obsessed with the latter.

Okay, well, besides distracting myself with David Bisbal and good stories from Julio, I am also a tennis player. Keeping with my Spanish attraction, I cannot get enough of Rafael Nadal. Believe me, I would love to have several hypothetical happenings with that historical figure...

Okay, I will be back when I can actually find something historical to write about. What I'd actually like to do is a joint article with GME about hypothetical interactions with Bentham's skeleton. More on that later.

Sneak Peek

I'd like to add my voice to my comrade's and bid you welcome! Also, get excited for the coming soon...

First up (probably), the asskicking of United States Senator Joe McCarthy. After that, likely some Cubans (shh, don't tell anybody), with the distinct possibility of some eminent figures of the American Civil War, after which somebody will talk shit about Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Marx will certainly make an appearance, and the axolotl forecast is looking pretty good. There will be pictures. There will hopefully be videos, although our limited technological knowledge may necessitate the enlistment of some talented compadres. There will always be geeking out. We see this as an excellent opportunity to actively engage ourselves in our studies. We are interacting with knowledge. Also, we want to dress up like historical figures and make dorky history jokes. Hah.

Besos y revoluciones,


Here you can get your fill of not-so-politically correct historical hilarity.

But before we get into the good stuff, here's a little bit of information about your authors. We're four juniors at Whitman College majoring in three different subjects.

I, the History major, spend my time waiting for a man in a blue box. When my eyes are not turned skyward, I enjoy long nights in the theatre and communist revolutions.

GME, the Spanish major, enjoys intellectual debates with Kafka while spinning wool. She spends her evenings drooling over Roque Dalton.

CMS, the Spanish major, spends a good deal of her time mastering her David Beisbal spins and kicks, while absorbing the words of Julio Cortazar.

SLR, the Politics major, with her constant companion Karl Marx at her side, spends those wintry Soviet nights listening to wizard wrock.

We hope you enjoy our musings. Feel free to comment on anything you read or hear!

Love and Communists,
