Here’s a few videos for all you music nerds out there (though everyone can get the jokes!)

This video, our tribute to the Rachmaninoff Centennial, is really kind of late, but hey, AT LEAST WE’RE MAKING AN EFFORT

(thanks, Abbie!)

This one doesn’t make any music jokes, actually, but it’s damn funny:



To get you through the start of November, here are some videos of small children/pandas. Enjoy, but the Smith Stalker is not liable if you can’t finish your work because of these.

More procrastination devices.

To make up for the late post, and beceause I think everyone needs to experience this site, here is a wonderfully incredibly engrossing tool for procrastination. It’s great. So great that you should not even consider clicking on it unless you’re truly done for the week.

Basically the site (or at least this part of it) is just hundreds of absurdly amazing lists. It may take a little while to find one you’ll love, but just wait, they’ll get you in the end. Anyway, click here.

This is pretty much the coolest thing we’ve heard all day.  A Smithie has started a late-night cookie delivery service on campus!  Milk and Cookies is the brainchild of Kristine Salters, who we don’t know, but she sounds like a totally awesome person.  This is the premise: Up late and studying?  Need something to eat?  She’ll bring you cookies and milk.  How genius is that?!

She delivers from [EDIT, thanks m&c!] 9:30-11:30 on Monday and Wednesday nights.  Just contact her by phone (781-424-8485) or email ( at least 15 minutes before you want delicious confections, which include the ‘all-nighter’ cookie and the old-fashioned chocolate chip.

Learn more at her site,  Her business is already up and running, so get your orders in!

EDIT:  You can also join her fb group here.

In case you didn’t get the memo, it’s officially FALL BREAK and as everyone knows, fall break is a time for lolligagging and sleeping. In honor of this time honored tradition, The Smith Stalker will not be doing it’s daily meals and events posts till we get back (plus, we all know, there’s not much going on anyway). If procrastination does not steal us away, we will still be working on the blog so email us with any suggestions (and if you want us to publicize your event happening this weekend) at

Everyone, have a wonderful break and please–for us–do these few things.

5. Go outdoors. Do everything you wanted to do on Mountain Day but couldn’t. If you did everything you wanted, find some leaves, make a pile and jump in them until you can’t get up any more. Be careful of sticks and the rapidly approaching ground.

4. Talk to friends from back home. Whether you’re staying on campus, going home, or visiting exotic places, fall break is a great time to play catch-up with high school friends. They miss you, you miss them, talk and all will be better.

3. Try a new restaurant. Especially if you’re staying at Smith and you don’t feel like making the trek to Elm Street for every meal. You may think that most restaurants are farther away than the open dining halls (and you’d be right), but the especially delicious food will counterbalance the added walk. My current recommendation is Local Burger: it’s good, fairly cheap, and has vegan and vegetarian options.

2. Figure out J-term plans. I know, I know, January seems eons away. But in reality and the far, far away land of normalcy, it’s actually pretty soon. Do you want to stay on campus or be home? Or galavant across Europe with only a backpack full of clothes and a passport?

1. Sleep. This is not an option. Once you think you’ve slept enough, go back to bed and sleep some more. You’ll need it later in the semester.

Funny Commercial

Here’s a video to help you with fall break boredom.


Thank you, Frazer Ward!
