This must be a week made for the cinematically-inclined: first an online movie trivia quiz and now a movie trivia night Thursday Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. on the 7th floor of Eshleman.

It’s free, folks, and you’re expected to come in teams of four (for example, Spengler, Venkman, Stantz, and Zeddemore). There will be prizes (prepare by getting that lame movie reference) and raffles.

We’ll start out with some random Clog movie trivia (which, admittedly, will be far too easy for film majors).

1) Name the movie that contains this quote: “You’re going to the cemetery with your toothbrush. How Egyptian.”

2) Which movie’s protagonist suffers from anterior retrograde amnesia?

3) Name four movies in which Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy starred opposite each other.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you probably got through those in your sleep. And since Clog trivia is completely unaffiliated with the event itself, this is no way reflects the difficulty of the questions that will be asked. But it’s a nice little warmup, and it might soothe your ego. Plus, we figure you love the smell of superiority in the morning.

3090995988_c02cc801eeWhile the rest of you were sleeping for 11 hours a day with visions of sugarplums dancing or something, and gaining the “Holiday 15″ with all that filler gift candy and food you just kept stuffing into your mouth to avoid talking to your relatives, the ASUC Judicial Council was busy deciding on recall procedures and the Daily Cal was busy reporting on it … and we were busy plotting our witty quips to use in writing about it. Bah humbug.

Although ASUC was toying with the idea of online voting to reduce the costs of its January recall election of John Moghtader, the Judicial Council decided to deliver a little lump of coal, issuing a ruling on Christmas Eve mandating that the election must follow the same procedures as regular elections. Looks like the ASUC’s gonna have to shell out the usual $48,000 for this election. Economic crisis anyone?

But alas, there might be a little gift from Santa after all. The Alameda County District Attorney announced that there will be no charges filed against those involved in the infamous Nov. 13 Eshleman Hall scuffle. We’d say that’s a better gift than that scented candle you probably got from your mom.
