Get my stamp!
With midterm season, parents weekend, and the World Series upon us, I know that everybody is pretty busy these days. However, it is a proven fact that participating in Shmooze-approved events lowers stress and improves your grades (How can you deny science?). I wanted to direct your attention to a few things happening around campus that have received the stamp of approval. In the future, if you know of an event that deserves Shmooze approval, let me know so that I can put it in the e-mail.
These weekly Shmooze staples will go on as normal. The women will convene in the CCRB women's fitness locker room tomorrow afternoon at 5, and the men will meet today at 6:30ish in the men's fitness locker room (Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend today but, as I have learned, no single person is bigger than the sauna).
Don't want to hear instruments? Want to hear the best A Capella Michigan has to offer? Come to the 6th annual MACfest on Saturday night at Rackham Auditorium from 8-11. Tickets are $10.

"Mass Murder, Memorials, and Music: Babi Yar and its Politics." Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. in Rackham Auditorium. This lecture is presented as part of the Shostakovich Centennial Festival, and is co-sponsored with the University Musical Society.

Shmooze Movie Classics Series: The Frisco Kid
We have been throwing around the idea of a Shmooze movie series since the club's inception. There is no better movie to kick off the series than this classic about a rabbi in the Old West. Clear your calendars for Thursday November 2 at 8 p.m. Stay tuned for more details.
