2 more Golden Gargoyles movies are on youtube:

This one they finished a week or so before the announcement of Booth:

This one is far from being my favorite but at the end I laughed really hard:

The first one is awesome. The second isn't as great. Nice but obvious punchline at the end...

Can I get the first dips on the rights to your "bromance" reality show, starring Terp26, and sonibubu?

Well he was kind enough to split the referral bonus w/ me, so I figure I give him the honor of being my neighbor lol
There's 3-4 boothies on our floor (10 apts per floor) so I will end up w/ boothies on both sides :)

I think you should join Sonibubu and Terp26 at the unofficial "Cribs Booth"....

P.S. - Seriously, someone sell me the rights to the reality bromance show.....

Based on the websites, I like those buildings, too. Do you think there will be apartments available to lock in around July? I am a little concerned about taking too long, but I want to wait to see what kind of scholarship money Kellogg offers me before making a final decision to attend Chicago Booth.

Same here. I am looking at Aqua and Shoreham. Did you have the chance to visit these buildings? Aqua looks amazing and the rent isn't all that different.

go to chicago google group and arrange for someone to "refer" you and split the 1000 or 1500 bonus w/ them in august. I'm already maxed out on referrals (1).

For those who are going to Random Walk, which trip did you select? I am still torn, though I'm leaning strongly towards Argentina and Mystery Trip.

1. Brazil
2. China
3. Ecuador

Trying to rearrange to

1. Brazil
2. Colombia
3. Ecuador

I don't want to avoid suffering from serious jetlag.

I called the leasing manager today, and she said the Aqua apartments have been leasing pretty quickly. She mentioned somewhere around 28 units in the last two weeks. My wife and I visited the Tides, and from what the leasing manager said, the inside is basically the same as those in Aqua (certain things like cabinets, appliance color may be different). We're probably going to go with Tides if we decide to move to Lakeshore East. It's $100/month cheaper than Aqua and it gives us a bit more time to look around. I guess I'm not quite ready to throw down a deposit and sign-up. My wife still doesn't seem to be sold on the area. Either way, I'll be hanging out at Aqua alot if Soni and Terp are living there (along with plenty of other Boothies, it seems).

Hey, guys, please PM me detailed info about Aqua. I'm going to be there at the end of April. What is a typical procedure? did you pay deposit? are you going to live starting in August? Please, clarify this stuff for me and maybe you will find a good partner for evening/night beer meetings ;)

By the way, if you're looking for a roommate (I am), there is a Google spreadsheet being shared in the Chicago Booth 2011 Google Group for this purpose. You can fill out your details and hopefully contact or be contacted regarding sharing an apartment.
