In memoriam [11 Feb 2007|06:21pm]

Nicholas Poto, a Maine West high school senior, passed away this past Thursday from injuries received in a car accident on Wednesday night.


Edit: Here's another article. This one states Nick Poto passed at the Northwest Community Hospital in Arlingotn Heights. I'm not sure which is correct.

I don't recognize this name, but I figured someone would... I do recognize the face in my yearbook, though.

Des Plaines Theatre turns 80 [06 Oct 2005|08:27pm]


We are pleased to announce our celebration this weekend of the theater's 80th anniversary, this October 9. We have planned a weekend of special shows to commemorate the occasion.

Friday Night:
Wizard of Oz, 7pm. Featuring a memorabilia display from the Des Plaines Historical Society in the lobby. Tickets $5, $4 for Students, Members, & Seniors

Saturday Night:
Casablanca, 7pm. Be sure to come early for added attractions! The newly-refurbished spectacular marquee will have its ceremonial re-lighting at 6:30. Following that, the lobby will be open with piano entertainment by David Drazin of the Gene Siskel film center, and beer & wine for sale at the concession stand. Tickets $5, $4 for Students, Members, & Seniors

Doors open at 1:30 with a price of only 25 cents for hours of entertainment! To celebrate 80 years of entertainment, we have designed a bill to harken back to the first days of the theater. First up is Tommy Dunn on the Hammond organ, bringing the magical sounds of organ back to the theater. Next is the Chordmasters Barbershop quartet, one of the best in state. Following is Banjo artist Vernon Podges, recreating the sounds of opening week act Ed "Banjo" Hines.

Next up is silent film Sally of the Sawdust, the third film to ever to appear at the theater, featuring WC Fields in his first starring role, directed by the legendary DW Griffith. Piano accompaniment will be provided by David Drazin.

Afterward, cake will be served to celebrate 80 great years. We hope to see you!

For whatever it's worth, I joined. Class of '03, though I doubt it matters, the community seems dead.

Would anyone like to start an English, Biology, or GDA study group? I need some serious reviewing and would rather do it in a group than by myself.

Also, to anyone who took any of those tests in the past: how were they compared to the classes? (Was bothering to take a class with Farrell worth receiving little to no credit at my college of choice? [Read: no.] Was being violently penetrated by Biology all year worth possibly failing the test? Is the Government test going to be as easy as I suspect it will be, especially compared to the US History exam?)

Someone broke into my mom's car and stole the stereo, which was pretty close to brand new. I swear to fuck, if I find out who did it, I'm getting some of my good buddies to make a little blood.

And, if anyone hears about who actually stole it, I think that they might find some benefits to telling me who did it.

It's at MW cause their stage burnt down, and they were practicing today. I went in and saw 7 minutes of their opening and was BLOWN AWAY. Mind you, I've seen many plays and a lot of amazing ones but this is up there.

So here it is, the post that I know you all have been anticipating.

Ewing t-shirts are ready for order.

Here is the layout:
Front: E-winger
Back: "E-wing is like the Bermuda Triangle. Once I heard a kid from C-wing went in there and never came back."-Bill M

The T-shirt is black with neon green writing. 10 dollars each.

If you go to MW currently, order forms will be made available to you soon.
If you no longer go to Maine West you will either have to get a sibling or good friend that is currently at MW to order them for you OR your other choice is to let me order them for you. If that is the case I will need money from you. If you need my address I will give it to you, just let me know.

Forms should be out later this week so make sure to order one while you can!

P.S. If you are an e-winger either in reality or at heart make sure to join our community! e_wingers

C'mon group, lets get some people to update the Des Plaines Wiki, maybe add Maine West, The first McDonalds, the Des Plaines River, the ChooChoo, The Historical Society, Oakton, and the Public Library.

Someone talk to Chua and get an article about Wikipedia on the paper.

taken from tiffbert and modified slightly.

calling all you graduates.

If you have taken the following classes, and have any advice as to how we can not go insane between now and May, kindly enlighten us? Like in physics, we've discovered that the key is the homework, because we really don't learn anything in class. Or any generic advice as to AP tests in general. Is the class a fairly good representation of the test? Is it easier? Harder? Do the teachers lie? Thanks if you can provide any info.

Calculus BC

omg! there's an MW community! [14 Nov 2004|05:22am]
I wish I had known last year that this existed!

for those who don't remember, which I'm sure is about everyone. I'm Liam! I was the blind kid who went to MW for way way too long. Most people knew me as liam, but I think more folks knew me as "that blind kid."
I'm glad to see there's an MW community, and even though I'm a graduate, I hope I can still hang out here. I really miss MW a lot and I'm gonna have to come back and visit one of these days.

Go Warriors!

So, I went to the Maine East V-show, and now I have a super V-show plan.

I need 11 people to help me. In those, I need set designers, strong people, and people who have a lot of black clothes- maybe some extra money to spend.

We're going to have ninjas, an evil king, and those squeaky hammers. Plus gravity changing. It's going to be OMFG awesome. Anyone from MW interested, reply here. Anyone who knows people who'd be interested, reply here. In general, if you want to see this OMFG awesome presentation and the making of it, reply here. We're going to take the show.
