Random Movies from Reunions

A few random Princeton Reunions shots I pulled from YouTube. Apologies I couldn't embed but YouTube's gotten lame and corporate. The Fireworks Saturday night. Vignettes from the one and only P-rade. More P-rade--the younger folks. Older farts at P-rade (older than me). Some our class's Friday night festivities, featuring Zyedco impressario Terrence Simien (our theme was mardi gras, and our noblesse olbige Ivy League probably raised more skrilla for Katrina-housing rehab than Ray Nagin promised and Cong. Bill Jefferson stole). Nothing on there from Saturday night's truly old fart stomp featuring Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes (nope...Little Steven Vansandt "Silvio Dante" from the Sopranos did not show up, as hoped). They went back to their stint as house band for Conan O'Brien. YouTube and bands are funny--even at a private event (though 2000 people under our tent isn't private) they still frown and folks recording their gigs. Oh well.
Will post my own pictures, especially from the black folks midnight party at the Carl Fields Center and our class dinner, where they actually flashed a photo of me with one of my novels. Quite proud, was Mrs. Nat Turner, as it was right behind a photo of my classmates who proudly orchestrated the Iraq War and $3.20/gallon gas. LOL

Why did I post this? Because unless you're in church, there's nothing good on TV on Sunday mornings, so you might as well click the links. Talk at you Monday night...

OK OK OK So you said it. HU needs "less P Diddy and more P Rade."

I went so Smith, and have procession not a parade (we're ladies dammit!). Theres no music at all, but the classes in attendance do march in wearing interesting accessories and signs. At my 10 year reunion, they made us wear yellow (our class color) leis. Just beautiful.
