Directed towards KIRBY patterson. The Hangman team appreciates your comments on felix, and would just like to say thank you. By slandering felix in such an immature way you've openly made yourself a target. Well done, and good luck. Just remember that if you were a semi-competent editor, you would have seen your mistake. How sad.
Just picked up the first two Felixes (Felices?) courtesy of my housemate..
My god - what a load of misogynistic s**te. There seemed to be no end to the whining about nerdiness, girls and the poor state of social affairs at Imperial. OH MAI GAWD SHOCK HORROR. IC isn't perfect. Whining about it won't help. Especially not in a Freshers' issue. Christ, Jovan, have some f**king common sense.
Additionally, the horoscopes suck. They're supposed to be surreal, not boring formulaic "you suck and won't get laid".
Actually, reading that, it came across as a little harsh. I was just quite surprised with quite how much of it was angry and aimed against everyone but the writer. Oh well. Given time, I'm sure Jov'll find his feet.
about two pages in the felix poke fun at imperial students (and the writers themselves obviously, being imperial students also) and people come out with bulls**t like "what a load of misogynistic s**te" get a grip and some perspective.
the felix has page after page of interesting content and some light relief and jovan has been doing a great job
I have to admit, I picked up the first Felix, skimmed it, then put it down. Then forgot where I'd put it. All the articles except the offending Hangman/Coffee Break thinsg seem to be up.
Given the responses on here I had a look at Hangman and Coffee Break this week and while it sails close to the wind (as last year) I think its quite hard not to take it as a joke.
Having said that, towards the end of last year it was nasty but quite witty. The summer seems to have taken the wittiness away (preferring just to be nasty), but I suspect that's down to a summer working...
In other news, weird that stoic tv and Felix were turned away from the library opening and only Live! got in.
