"Bri" rhymes with "Guy" and they both rhyme with "Fly".

Half an hour until class. RAMBLE TIME!

I'm guessing this will end up being a common occurrence: on Mondays and Thursdays, I've got a class from 10 to 12, nothing from 12 to 2, and then class again from 2 to 4. It is during that period of time from 12 to 2 that I find myself in the library, posting on ggftw. Like now. Schedules are a good thing, right?

Speaking of the library, this has got to be one of the ugliest buildings ever built, ever. I mean, just look at it:

It's just... bleurgh. It doesn't even make sense. But on the inside it's pretty neat:

Lots of blue-ish and green-ish lights everywhere help to make a calm atmosphere. You know, the kind of environment that a library should have. But right next to the library, with its weird clash of horrible on the outside and awesome on the inside, is this:

A church, right? Wrong. A computer church. It's the school's computer lab, but it was apparently a church some time ago. The school wanted to tear it down and build a computer lab there, but the church didn't like that, so they just put the computers inside the church instead. It's pretty awesome. What's especially funny is that there is a church in town that holds services in a bar. It's a rather common saying at this school: "We use computers in a church, and go to church in a bar. All we need is a computer lab to drink in, and all will be well."

And then, next to both the library of +13 hideousness and the computer church, is this... thing.

Some call it the Ark, some call it the Giant Wooden Bubble, some call it strange. It is the "Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center," or EMPAC. It contains a theater, an "acoustically-perfect" concert hall, three "exhibition studios," and a whole lot of offices and things. It's really, really, cool. And weird. And apparently a lot of people hate it a lot because they see it as a needless expenditure of money. I sort of agree with those people, but really, I don't mind it being there. If nothing else, the thought of it suddenly rolling down the hill and crushing the city of Troy, New York is really hilarious.

Anyhow, I'm going to have to end this post here. It's almost time for me to go to class, and there's some sort of ominous Latin chanting going on in the stairwell I'm sitting next to, and it's kinda freaking me out. Until next time!

    Your performing arts building thing looks cool. Mine is probably 100 years old. Along with most of the buildings on campus orz

    Wish the performing arts building here looked that nice.
    I also kind of like the whole computer church thing, but I'm a fan of building built in that style :x

    Those are some of the strangest buildings I've ever seen, like if M.C. Escher was an architect and interior designer instead of a mind screwer and whatever the hell he did to building interiors

    The interior of your library reminds me of Esthar from FF8

    Oh my god that library interior design has got to be one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

    Edit: So is the EMPAC! :P
