   With all of the It hype lately due to the recent release of the 2017 version of this Stephen King classic, I decided to finally see the 1990 version, directed by Tommy Lee Wallace, after years of pushing it off. And I have to say, It was not what I was expecting.

   The 1990 It movie has a bold open. Immediately the viewer is faced with the death of two separate children in the town of Derry, ME, and the introduction of Pennywise, a creepy clown played by none other than actor Tim Curry. As the movie progresses it follows a group of seven friends across two separate time-lines, their pre-teen past where they first meet Pennywise and their return to Derry in the present; they attempt to save their own lives from Pennywise and his many mind games.

   The 1990’s It was scary at first, and then just got kind of (really) bad by half-way through. Once the movie finally gets into the thick of its plot, it can...

Although the unseasonably warm weather has some students confused as to whether or not it is actually fall, L.L. Bean swooped on to the UNH campus to assure students that autumn, and winter, is definitely coming. 

L.L. Bean’s famous “Boot-Mobile” parked on the fish-bowl in front of Scott Hall yesterday and today in order to promote the company’s new fall and winter line as well as give students an opportunity to purchase merchandise at a discounted rate.

“This campus gets a lot of snow, a lot of cold weather, and people are walking pretty far distances sometimes,” says Jenna Hannafin, one of UNH’s student ambassadors for L.L. Bean “So you want them to be able to have gear that will hold up to that kind of wear.”

Students from all over campus flocked to the fish bowl in order to get theirs hands on the merchandise, which was all discounted at 20% off. Mannaqins dressed in the latest fall fashions wear placed next to folda...

No, no, I’m glad you called,

I actually wanted to reach out to you.

I don’t remember that, but I saw him the

Other day, I motioned but he didn’t see, what a dick, right.

No, keep going, I - No I interrupt - I’m loud, it’s a problem.

It’s just that I smelled a waft of some old fragrance a couple days ago.

Yeah, like the smells that trigger some nostalgic hallucination,

Except I wasn’t tripping, I was just smelling.

Honestly it kind of had that moldy, sarcophagus odor.

Yeah I really don’t think bigfoot's dick would smell like this.

Okay, then yeah depending on bigfoot's game I guess.

Yeah if he’s got big feet - but anyway I remembered an image with it.

It’s from a movie, but obviously an old one - in color.

Some suit playing guitar in a chair - a man - and when I thought of it,

I felt awful. Like the feeling when a teacher yells at you as a kid.

No, worse. Nah we Jews always knew Santa wasn’t real.

Okay, like as if I had forgot somethi...

1. If it’s yellow, let it mellow

Pee is sterile, so ignore the pleas of your roommates and never flush the toilet. This will save water as well as the very valuable 4 seconds you would have spent cleaning up after yourself. Make sure to announce the snappy rhyme whenever encouraged by the people around you to stop being so disgusting.

2. Jars

Buy one Mason jar. Leave it in the back of your hot, stinky car for the entire semester. Use it for all beverage needs — water, coffee, it’s all good. Your one sticky jar can save you a fortune on plastic water bottles and many coffee shops will even give you a discount for bringing your own container so they won’t have to waste a paper cup. Make sure to only rinse it out at the Hydration Stations around campus to guarantee all of your water will have the lingering taste of black coffee; this is the taste of sustainability.

3. Ziplock Bags

Reduce, reuse, recycle! Save the Ziplock...
