Interview: Friday Before the Monday 2013-08-16 :: Why Did You Choose the Greater Lafayette Area?

A tradition we have is to interview the campus patrons on the Friday before the Monday classes start. It is a magical and enchanting evening filled with stories of the summer, serendipitous encounters, and the hope that this semester will be more positive than the previous.

This particular year, we focused on asking people why they were in the Greater Lafayette area, why they chose Purdue University, and their impressions of the urbanscape.

A few things we learned while conducting these interviews:

  • Fast paced to slower paced environment.
  • I chose this place because of Purdue.
  • Major difference between Illinois and Indiana? Slow. Different.
  • Desperation.
  • Go America. Live for freedom.
  • Until we done, we turn up.
  • Brian Lamb is from Lafayette and people know this.
  • Recruiters like Purdue because graduates are so willing to move wherever they off them a job.
  • Home Owners Association of West Lafayette
  • If students are your main economy, you need to feed the economy.

We hope you enjoy the meanderings we had throughout the evening as much as we did.

Noise: Doberman – At Large in the City Bootleg – Foam City 2013-06-29

FoamCity-Locals Only-Poster-2013-06-29

Doberman. Loud. Noisy. Theatric. Shin splitting gravel sounds emitted through various amplifiers. The show opened with some found sound from an interview and then broke way to a larger cacophony of sounds, supplied by its diverse instrumentation.

In this locals-only show Wasps Masks, The Unusual Few, and the Gestalts also took the stage throughout the night for a fun, high energy, and loud, knock’em around show at Foam City.

Listen to the At Large in the City Bootleg:

Foam City, and other venues, should continue to support the local scene as much as they can.

Interview: Beau Watson Dreams up a Boil of Fun with Dreamlancer

In everyone’s favorite downtown Lafayette bookstore, Robots and Rogues, we managed to catch up with Beau Watson, author of Dreamlancer: The Tournament of Heroes, for his first Mosey Down Main Street experience1.

Dreamlancer is a 283 page, 10 or 11 point serif font fantasy book that explores the monster, griffin, raptor, and Godzilla-esq shadow beast inhabited Dream Realm. You can peruse the Dreamlancer Field Guide (wiki) and pressure Beau to create an HTML5 game of the book.

A short synopsis taken from the Dreamlancer website:

Ryan Wilkinson is a fairly average young man – that is, until he goes to sleep. As he slumbers, he dreams he is the hero of a faraway land. He is the Champion of Elyria: the Dreamlancer. Ryan soon learns that these are no ordinary dreams and that some mysterious force is tampering with the energies that flow from our world to the weird and wonderful Dream Realm. If nothing is done about it, the Dream Realm – and perhaps our own reality – could face a cataclysmic disaster.

1A sad reality is that not many Purdue students know about this fun and engaging street festival that takes place monthly over the summer months in downtown Lafayette. How are we going to change that? Lafayette’s Community of Choice consultants want to know. Join the conversation #LafCoC.
