From The Bizarre Ashes: Evangelion 2.0

31 Dec

Hello Readers,

It has been a while since I’ve had a topic to post about, I was a bit afraid that I wouldn’t have much to talk about during the intersession. The club has received news that a theater in Manhattan is showing Evangelion 2.0. I am sorry that I cannot provide much information as I was not provided with much information myself. What I do know of is the where and when which is as follows:

New York Release
Starts from 1/21(Fri)
*: you can watch 1.0 prior to the opening of 2.0 for 2days 1/19 & 1/20
Big Cinemas Manhattan
239 East 59th Street, New York, NY 10022
Tel: 212-371-6683

The promotional poster for the movie.

That’s pretty much it, I hope my next post will be more thorough and in depth.

Your Secretary,


Seth Tobias Zeltzer


From The Bizarre Ashes: End of Year Party

10 Dec

Hello Readers,

The second annual BCAM End of Year Party has come and gone and the event was amazing. There was something for just about everyone: there was food and beverages, desserts, card games (Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic), video games (Super Street Fighter 4 and BlazBlue), music (courtesy of our very good friend Julian aka DJ cariƱo), dancing to said music and if nothing else just people to hang out with.

I spent most of my time moving back and forth across the room doing a few things:
1) Cleaning up
2) Taking pictures for not only myself but also Ed the club president
3) Getting people to sign the attendance sheet (in which we amassed approximately 60 names!)

As I spent my time going back and forth across the room, I was able to see first hand, how much fun people were having. I was great to see people relaxing and having fun (especially since Finals begin shortly). Even though I was constantly busy making sure the party was going smoothly I still managed to have a great time. I think I was very happy to see everyone enjoying themselves.

Unfortunately there were some unfortunate turn of events. Mostly this was that we planned on doing Karaoke, but as we didn’t get a mic with the setup and no one asked we just didn’t do it. It is a shame but fortunately that didn’t really hinder the party at all.

Easily my favorite part of the night was Ed’s speech to everyone. He expressed his appreciation towards not only the other executive members (which includes myself, Jenny the VP and Justin the treasurer) but also towards everyone who showed up and truly helped make this party the success that it was. I really was embarrassed when Ed said such nice things about me and had me speak to the crowd (Justin and Jenny had done the same before me). It was a very surreal moment for me (as I don’t really like public speaking all that much; and I was met with a hail of OBJECTION!‘s and HOLD IT!‘s when I mentioned cosplaying). I am very happy to know that I am doing a good job and I feel a great sense of accomplishment in seeing the party come to fruition.

So lastly I would like to offer my own thanks to Ed, Jenny and Justin for doing so much work for this party and for putting up with me. Thanks to everyone who attended and made the party great and finally I want to thank Julian for entertaining us for the four or so hours that the party lasted, you truly did a great job.

All I can say (and I am quite sure I can speak for the other executive members when I say this) is thank you to everyone who has showed up to not only this party but has contributed to something during the semester. It has been a wild ride; from NYAF/NYCC to the less than spectacular Halloween Party to the Thanksgiving, GMB Video Game and End of Year parties.

I would like to take this opportunity before I end to wish everyone good luck on their finals/projects, the happiest of holidays and a very happy, healthy and safe new year.

Until next time; rising up from the bizarre ashes,

Your appreciative secretary,


Seth Tobias Zeltzer

Ed, Justin, Jenny and myself
