All eyes were on the EVVYs Friday Night. The 36th annual award show handed out dozens of awards for student work made over the past academic year. The most anticipated award of the night was the award for ‘best award show’.
“The nominees for ‘Best Award Show are:” said EVVYs host Jackline Mundie. “The EVVYs, for ‘The 36th EVVY Awards’.”
Suspense mounted in the Cutler Majestic Theatre. Not a sound was reportedly heard as the EVVYs host opened the envelope to reveal the winner.
“And the winner is… The EVVYs!”
The crowd went wild as the EVVYs took their rightful award. In an astounding speech that received a standing ovation, The EVVYs gave many heartfelt thanks.
“I’d like to thank The EVVYs, first and foremost, for giving me this award,” said The EVVYs. “A big thanks is also in order to all the other EVVY awards awarded this year and in year’s past.”
At press time, The EVVYs were being invited to The EVVYs’ official after party.
Just hours after the closing of its Boylston Street location, Einstein’s Bagels™ became the newest host to numerous demonic creatures in its now vacant restaurant.
One ghost was happy at home before a layer of dust could even appear on the now-dormant bagel and coffee shop’s counters.
“Yeah this place is pretty nice! It’s got it all. Totally spacious,” said the spirit of a 8-year old girl who was murdered at the corner of Boylston and Tremont in 1645. “I could really see myself materializing here for the rest of eternity, much like the students who once waited in line here for equally as long.”
Other evil spirits were hoping to one day be the feature of an Emerson student’s VM120 project.
At press time, two horny teenagers were hooking up behind the now-vacant counter.
Reports surfaced Thursday night that a local establishment is lit.
“The place is lit. The people are mint. The drinks? Off the chain,” reported a patron of the watering hole. “Man, I’m going to miss college over the summer. Mostly because I will not be able to attend gatherings in this building.”
At press time, a Lyft driver’s experience transporting patrons from the aforementioned location to their residence was not lit.
Adjunct professor and self professed coffee junkie Jenny Mason, (WLP Department) went to Einstein’s for one final coffee before they closed their doors forever, and she dropped it. Onlookers thought she was simply “Pouring one out” for the soon to be lost Emerson staple, but as it turns out, she just didn’t tighten the lid enough. She cried out as coffee spilled, but then was reported to say “classic Jenny.” More as this develops.
Veteran speakers of Emerson’s graduation ceremony have been tirelessly coaching up 2017 speaker Dennis Lehane, who is terrified at the thought of giving a speech at the Agganis Arena this week.
“We know you can do it. YOU Just have to believe in yourself,” said 2015 speaker Robin Roberts to the 51-year old author.
“Alright here’s what you’re gonna do,” said 2014 speaker and Emerson alum Jay Leno. “Get up there. Tell a few jokes. Yeah. Really just knock their socks off. Bing bang boom. Yeah. Alice, what’s he gonna do next?”
“Bring up your book!” suggested fellow author and 2016 speaker Alice Sebold. “Just talk about your new book, Since We Fell. Your first book featuring a female protagonist? That’s a gold mine. You can kill 10 minutes with that. That’s what you do. You’re an author. And your name is Dennis Lehane.”
Meanwhile, all former Secretary of State and Emerson speaker John Kerry could throw out there was to “picture the crowd in their underwear.”
At press time, Lehane decided he would just read the first chapter of Shutter Island and hope nobody notices he didn’t prepare a speech.
At 4pm on Friday afternoon the Emerson Counseling and Psychological Services staff met at their usual spot to dish out the juicy details they picked up over the school week.
“Oh my god! How did you NOT know that Julie McEntire’s parents were getting divorced?” asked Lead Counselor Amanda Rossberg, who has been the queen of the inner circle ever since her arrival in 2011.
“Well, apparently, Jack Young is thinking about getting serious with his girlfriend after he graduates! It’s great to see. That’s brought him some much needed happiness in light of his falling grades and falling out with his freshman roommate,” reported James Soclov- who meets with Young on a weekly basis.
“Funny — because his girlfriend just told me that she’s ready to move on with her life and not looking to commit to anything right now because she’s moving to LA!” responded Ellie Nolan with eyes wide open.
