The Shaft

LIVEBLOG DAY 3: The mixed groups are coming, the mixed groups are coming!

Today is day 3 of Room Selection, when mixed-point groups and the first junior groups will select from the remaining suites. Check out our liveblog below the jump!

4:30 p.m. Housing is shutting things down for the day, so we're done as well! I'm off to pretend to work on my thesis.

4:29 p.m. Supposedly there's another group. But the music has stopped. Awkward silence has ensued.

4:26 p.m. We're nearing the end of our time together, lovely readers. 20/1295 just picked into Woodbridge 4D.

4:19 p.m. Still here. Not much happening. I did just realize that the phrase "Shaft Goddess" is...um, yeah. Oops. Sorry, Emma!

4:10 p.m. Shaft Goddess Emma Finder has pointed out to us that Ruggles 615-619 is gone, which means that there are no six-person suites left in Ruggles. On a similar note, Ruggles 3 is now completely gone. Soon afterward that happened, Ruggles 208-212 was snatched. There is only one eight-person suite left in Ruggles.

4:05 p.m. We're still breathing. Not much else is happening here, though.

3:55 p.m. And the last Woodbridge I line is gone, taken by group 20/1176.

3:51 p.m. AND THEY GET WHAT THEY WANT! Dan's crying from joy, I promise.

3:50 p.m. Symposium is GONE. And Dan and Chris are off into the cage! Will they get the room they want? The suspense is kill me.

3:44 p.m. And the first Broadway double, 922, is gone! Taken by group 20/1028 (or so). And another Ruggles eight person is gone (308-312). Dan and his roommate, Chris, are getting ready to go into the cage! The tension is palpable.

3:41 p.m. And another one [Ruggles eight-person suite] bites the dust. The first floor is all gone.

3:32 p.m. Ruggles 601 is gone (it's an eight-person suite). As is Woodbridge 5D. Slowly but surely thinks are picking up here! Yay! Much excitement. Very housing. Also, the only eight-person suites left have three doubles, and there is only one six-person suite left in Ruggles.

3:29 p.m. Still here. Still not much happening. I'll take this time to shoutout to all our loyal readers, even those who aren't picking into housing today. (Hi Sophia, BC '14). A huge group just stepped into the cage.

3:22 p.m. And the last suite on Ruggles 5 is gone, which is an eight person suite! Apparently, there's some odd tension happening between suitemates already. That will certainly be a fun living experience next year! Also, Watt 5B was just taken. Overall, though, it's pretty slow here.

3:13 p.m. Ooooooh, a large group just went into the cage. Only noticed this after zoning out and coming to in reaction to any form of movement in the lounge. The hypnotic nature of the music playing does not help with thhhhhhhhhhzhzzzsm. Oh, sorry. Back now.

3:08 p.m. It's been pretty slow here, but 20/895 just picked into Woodbridge 3B. Fun party times.

2:59 p.m. After some master sleuthing (read: checking the floorplans), Dan has discovered there's only one Symposium studio double left. We've updated everything accordingly.

2:52 p.m. 20/853 just picked into Watt 6D! They seemed pretty happy, and were looking forward to having a private bathroom and kitchen. And shortly afterwards, a group picked into Woodbridge 3I. Still pretty quiet here. I expected to witness housing madness!

2:46 p.m. Dan is currently trying to figure out his own housing! Ah, to have any semblance of an idea what you will be doing next year. Or next month. #seniorstruggles. Still quiet in these parts. Oh! And I was just informed that Woodbridge 4I's lottery number was in fact 20/835. It's the little victories that make me love liveblogging housing.

2:42 p.m. It's pretty quiet in here, although a group just picked Woodbridge 4I. They disagreed about their lottery number, though (as if that hasn't happened in this room before), guessing it was around 20/835 or 20/875.

2:39 p.m. Hey, Rebeka here! Former Spec sports editor, former Spec staff director, current editorial board member, and Barnard senior. Don't worry though, you're in good hands—I probably know more about Columbia housing at this point than Barnard, thanks to Spec. I just tried to make sure our floorplan and whiteboard was as up to date as possible, specifically in regards to Symposium, Claremont, Watt, Woodbridge, and Ruggles. Editorial Page Editor Dan Garisto just double checked.

2:32 p.m. Alright my loves, we're off. Don't fret though, Rebeka Cohan's taking over.

2:30 p.m. Did you guys hear about James Franco being creepy on Instagram today? #alum

2:28 p.m. Someone just called our live blog "a riot." We're just a hoot.

2:25 p.m. Woodbridge 2L. This is literally amazing, I am ecstatic, this is the moment we were waiting for. You can quote us, we're going to throw a party now, everyone's invited. Shout-out to spec #blessed." Bless you, young men, bless you. Stay ironic, stay cool.

2:20 p.m.  Brownstone 540A said in a delightful southern drawl. Woodbridge 4B is taken, guy did a really terrible dance move to accompany announcement, they feel "No comment. Good."

2:17 p.m. "No wonder they were timid, it must be terrifying leaving the cage, disappointed in your housing choice, only to be assaulted by tons of livebloggers looking for a good quote, all while looking for where you're supposed to sign your housing agreement." - Karl

2:16 p.m. Woodbridge 6D chosen by two timid girls.

2:15 p.m. Ooooh errr, Karl's got a new illustration out today for Nika Madyoon's column.

2:12 p.m. Sappy One Direction came on. We're all getting a bit emotional over here.

2:10 p.m. Former Editorial Page Editor Lanbo Zhang came in and immediately criticised yours truly. No one who picked into Symposium has set foot in the building.

2:08 p.m. 8 people suite, floor five ruggles just taken. Two girls say "I hate housing. Housing is terrible." Well, that seems a bit unfair don't you think?

1:05 p.m. Karl and I tried to eat candy instead of lunch. "I haven't eaten this much candy since elementary school and now I know why." #nausea

1:02 p.m. The tootsie roll is the most underrated candy. Ruggles 4th floor, 8 person just taken by quiet nice-seeming young man.

1:58 p.m. Some music with some sexy falsetto be playin' right now. Spec fairy godmother, former sports editor and staff director Rebeka Cohan helping us fix the whiteboard. You're in good hands, readers.

1:57 p.m. Ruggles 1st floor. "#fuckinterrible" is how they feel about it. 6 person suite.

1:54 p.m. Claremont 2 last 2 person, number 543. Thumbs and a head nod from some men with deep voices.

1:50 p.m. Dean Martinez came and said hi. Very exciting news about Johns Hopkins! said I.

1:48 p.m. I thought selection would be more dramatic. I thought there would be tears. There is no tears. There is no one.

1:44 p.m. "This song is like.....it's always on in uniqlo" Karl on Latch. "You know there was a day I hit up all three uniqlos in New York?" also Karl. No one is here right now.

1:42 p.m. "It's a rad-femme post-punk band, they literally just yell into the mic and make noise. Kind of good" Karl. OMG they put on disclosure #dead

1:39 p.m. People won't talk to us because we don't have stickers. Are you five? We're not MADE of money. #capitalism

1:34 p.m. Ruggles 215 taken. "Cecilia" by Simon and Garfunkel is truly and excellent song.

1:31 p.m. "Ruby, where you livin' " Karl. Woodbridge 7D lottery #321

1:29 p.m. Executive decision to play some Simon & Garfunkel on the Spec couch #getturnt

1:28 p.m. Karl making fun of my spelling. I'm like, not that bad at slepling.

1:26 p.m. Symposium 548, #265 How do you feel about it? "I've never been inside of it."  OK.

1:23 p.m Watt 3O just got picked, housing Queen Lara Simone informs us

1:21 p.m. Lottery number 226 picked into Ruggles, asked Bwog for stickers. Karl and Yaz just inhaled some candy. Where's the music?!?!?!?!

1:19 p.m. Karl's on the whiteboard, Ruggles 6B taken, people feeling * amazing * I just asked for candy, Karl just asked for "a hammer."

1:16 p.m. Karl has no access to whiteboard, Ruggles 316 just got picked, people seem ambivalent, content. Karl says "Everyone's just striving for contentment these days." * Le Sigh *

1:14 p.m. Ruggles 6 person suite 7th floor, group feeling "too turnt" numbers 715-19. Idk what too turnt means.

1:11 Spectrum celebrity dqueezy brought us muffins

1:11 p.m. Woodbridge 5I #73 rising juniors

1:08 p.m. Karl and I are getting a picture to put on facebook #priorities

1:03 p.m. Karl is is shopping for camo snapbacks online he just yelled "NO SHAME!" at me. Things are slow.

1:00 p.m. Aaaaand we're back, former Editorial Page Editor Yasmin Gagné and opinion deputy Karl Daum are here. We're both quite hungry.

12:10 p.m. BRB lunchtime. Stay tuned for updates.

12:09 p.m. Wow, thanks for the muffins, Ruggles ladies!
IMG_1495

12:04 p.m. It's time for me (Peter) to head out, as I've got a paper to wrap up and lunch to eat. Rachel is heading out as well to deal with her catatonic computer. One last group: 20/42 picked into the seventh floor of Ruggles. THEY BROUGHT US MUFFINS! "We're crazy about housing, but it pays off. And we found the meaning of life — 42." There is a new bar for all future groups — BRING US MUFFINS!

11:57 a.m. Next group heads into the cage. No reports on whether they'll be joined by Nicholas Cage. Another Ruggles six-person gets snagged.

11:53 a.m. Another Ruggles three-double suite has been snagged by a six-person bro suite. They tell us they've "cheated the system" with a senior in their group. Of course, that's not technically cheating the system, but good for them!

11:49 a.m. The sweet grooves of "Africa" echo through the lounge as the next group picks into the fifth floor of Ruggles. A group of wrestlers, they tell us that they're "closer than any team on campus — we beat each other up."

11:47 a.m. The 8 female athletes have picked into Ruggles for a three-double suite. "I'm a sophomore getting senior housing, so it's really SUITE. I'm excited to live with my team!" says one tall soccer star, Liz Judd, CC '17. "Same shitty roommate though." She laughs. Peter asks if living together makes them a better soccer team. Judd responds that there's definitely more chemistry and they love hanging out. "Sometimes too much," she adds. Congratulations and best of luck next season, all of you!

11:45 a.m. A group of six young gentlemen have gone into the cage.

11:43 a.m. DQueezy here. Peter's sloth typing was driving me nuts. He loves me and let me switch!

11:39 a.m. Lots of people in the lounge, as a huge group of seven women's soccer players and one volleyballer enters the cage. Meanwhile, dqueezy worries that I "type too slowly." Another large group comes out of the cage having dropped into online selection.

11:36 a.m. Rachel is having computer issues, in the sense that it is not staying turned on. A trip to the Apple Store is in her future, we fear.

11:34 a.m. The music has switched from slow jams to rap music. "What kind of music do mummies like to listen to?" dqueezy jokes. It's "wrap." Get it? Cue eye roll.

11:29 a.m. dqueezy is Snapchatting. I guess Snapchat is a verb now. Lots of people in the lounge but not a lot of hot room-picking action.

11:24 a.m. Things are quiet. Too quiet. You could cut the tension with a plastic spork.

11:17 a.m. Another Woodbridge pair. They called it their "first-and-a-half choice." Meanwhile, we try to help a nervous gentleman figure out whether he'll be able to get a Ruggles 6-person. I'm not sure whether we helped him at all — especially because my attempt to cut the tension with a joke elicits nothing more than a blank stare. Nice try, Peter.

11:12 a.m. Two more groups pick into Woodbridge. The first gives their happiness level: two thumbs up! The second is a new pair of roommates, but they "practically" already live together. Lots of happiness among these Woodbridge duos.

11:08 a.m. Another pair just picked into Woodbridge. Some disagreement on whether their situation is "good" or "great," but they already got a chance to check out their room yesterday and are feeling pretty good. (At least, I think that's the average of good and great.)

11:04 a.m. Hi there — Peter Andrews, sports columnist and editorial board member, taking over this fine live-blog. I'm joined by Spectrum all-star Daniela Quintanilla and associate opinion editor Rachel Smith for the pre-lunch period.

10:58 a.m. Peter Andrews is taking over in a minute! Another group just picked into a Woodbridge double.

10:54 a.m. Last three-person suite in Claremont was just taken.

10:52 a.m. Amy Winehouse is playing and we're feeling pretty good about it. A group just picked into a Woodbridge double. I'm sensing a theme.

10:41 a.m. Eva Kalikoff here, Deputy News Editor. Latest group just picked into Woodbridge 3A. Things are moving veryyyyyyy slowly. I think its fair to say that everybody needs more coffee.

10:31 a.m. Seems like no one is here. John Jay Lounge is as quiet as Harmony on a Friday night.

10:26 a.m. The one and only Claremont five-person suite was just taken by the group with lottery number 26/1446.

10:22 a.m. Another sad-looking group just walked out of the cage (they had to drop to online selection), and this time, Shaft priestess Emma Finder restrained herself.

10:18 a.m. Shaft witch Emma Finder just heckled a sad group that had to drop to online selection.

10:17 a.m. "I'm not going to get into EC, but at least I have this cowtail," said a disappointed junior, as he took another vicious bite of his candy.

10:15 a.m. Not quite sure how a group is able to choose into a suite and then "drop out" ... and neither is the group that just chose into the last EC suite.

10:10 a.m. SURPRISE! Supposedly a group that had previously chosen into EC "dropped out," leaving a window open for the next group, 26/785, to steal the new last EC suite.

10:05 a.m. And with that, the last EC suite has been taken. I repeat, EC is officially off the table.

10:00 a.m. Hey all, managing editor Steven Lau taking over the liveblog. Now that I've survived the war known as Senior Regroup, I can report on housing without wishing every other group the worst luck. Latest group just chose into a four-person suite in 47 Claremont.

9:44 a.m. Thanks to the magic of iPhones, I have taken pictures of the floor plans and will be updating them momentarily. Please be patient with me, as I am but a poor lonely Speccie who needs to wash her hair. And my only breakfast is a drinkable yogurt.

9:40 a.m. 28/323 has just taken EC 810, leaving 7 EC exclusion suites. Someone with a large fistful of balloons is distributing them around the room.

9:34 a.m. One lonely guy is his 5-person group's proxy, headed into the cage now. "This must be the press," the next group comments as they walk by me and Bwog.

9:33 a.m. Due to my loneliness (my co-blogger is sick), the whiteboard and floorplans will not be completely accurate for a little bit, but hang tight.

9:31 a.m. On their way out, a guy in 28/65 said, "We're all going to Ferris to celebrate."

9:29 a.m. Good morning! Emma Finder here, editorial page editor and lonely/tired/hungry Shaft blogger. The day started off with 28/65, a five-person group, who picked into EC 1016. There are now 8 EC exclusion suites left.
