…and we’re back. Meeting Minutes 8/29/18 & 9/4/18

We officially had our first meeting of the new semester on August 29th! We welcomed a new member, Hannah and had the general “get to you know you”-style meeting. It’s so great to officially be back and to be writing on this blog again. 

This past Tuesday we welcomed another new member, Kaylee and recorded a brand new episode of the 1515 Podcast! After a few moments of technical difficulties, we finally were able to record with no further problems. We discussed the films we saw this summer and everything that went down at Comic-Con. We’ll be back in two-ish weeks with another episode, we’ll be discussing all the films coming out in the Fall/Winter of 2018 and the new images in Entertainment Weekly from the Captain Marvel film!

A Few Announcements…

Happy Almost School Year, SLACers! Oh how I’ve missed this blog and all it’s geeky glory. 

As the school year quickly approaches Brandon, Lauren and myself have been busy discussing our plans for activities and events for SLAC. 

After much discussion, we have changed our meeting day! Our new meeting day will be on Tuesdays @ 3:30 PM, still located in room 1515 in the Library which is located in the SCB. 

Our podcast, The 1515 Movie Podcast will be back next fall! We will be bringing you brand new, 30 minute episodes every other week. If there are topics you want us to discuss or share our opinions on, please let us know in the comments.

 The Fall Semester begins on August 20th! Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, August 28th @ 3:30 PM!

Good luck to everyone this semester and stay tuned for new announcements! 

NEW Podcast EP and End of the Semester Reminder!

Just like that, this school year has come to a close. While I’m thrilled classes are over, I am sad to be leaving SLAC for the summer. Seeing what this club has accomplished makes my heart happy and I can’t wait for all the fun and adventures we’ll be getting up to next semester. 

The new 1515 Podcast EP is here! 

Last Thursday, we did also wrap up some final house-keeping items. 

  • Our new meeting time will be Thursdays at 4PM in Room 1515 located in the Library. 
  • We will not be meeting this Thursday (5/17) but our last meeting will be Friday, May 18th at Biaggi’s at 1PM. 

On a final note, I would again like to thank Lauren, Brandon, and Jill for being my partners in crime and making SLAC and the 1515 Podcast so incredibly fun and memorable. You guys are truly the most wonderful and creative people I have ever met and I look forward to more adventures and SLACing next Fall!

Meeting Minutes- May 9th, 2018

The Infinity War episode of the 1515 Podcast is here!

Yesterday we recorded our DC episode and that will be up early next week! 

*Disclaimer before you listen to the episode! We here at the 1515 Podcast and SLAC do not hate DC Comics or any of it’s characters. But when DC and Warner Brothers keep producing and releasing awful movies, we have no control over that, other than to dedicate an entire hour-long episode talking about the good and bad parts of the last 5 movies that have come out.

We will have a new meeting day and time for next fall! Next fall we will be meeting on Thursdays from 4-5 PM in Room 1515 in the Library! (okay not a huge change, we just pushed it forward 1 hour). 

and if you were curious as to which movie won our “Which Movie are You Going to See This Summer?” poll

Meeting Minutes- May 3rd, 2018

Happy May the 4th Be With You or “Star Wars” Day SLACers!

  • We recorded a new episode of the podcast yesterday, I will be posting that later this weekend! We discussed all things Avengers: Infinity War (and we managed to discuss it in only an hour which I’m still impressed by). 
  • DC Fans,  your time has finally come. Next week we will be discussing the DC Film Universe! We’ll be talking about about the last 5 years of the films, including Suicide Squad, Batman v. Superman and Wonder Woman! We actually talked a little bit after recording the podcast episode about the DCU and all the (questionable) choices it has made in terms of casting, plot, films, etc. 
  • If you haven’t already, check out our latest poll in the library! We picked 4 different films that are coming out this summer and it’s your job to decide which one you’ll be seeing (but you can see all of them outside of the one you picked). Your options are Solo: A Star Wars Film, Ant Man & Wasp, Mission Impossible: Fallout and Incredibles 2 (which is in the lead with 34 votes). 

and with that, I will leave you all with this awesome gif of Wonder Woman to lead you into the weekend and into the dreaded FINALS week.
