Cardinal Metrics is hosting a social mixer Tuesday evening in the hopes that students from all walks of life and all majors will come to learn about how they can get involved with using emerging technology. The event will be held in the Holden Strategic Communications Center in the Arts and Journalism building from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. Participants will be able to explore the emergent technology of eye-tracking through an iSpy game. Afterwards, students will get to visualize their results and make an in-depth evaluation of how they did.
“Moss Piglets” is a relatively inoffensive entry to the series, but it will not be remembered except as a set up for future episodes if those are any good. There are some good foundations for jokes, but none of the set-ups are executed on.
To get an idea of what it is like to be a sound editor, we got some insight from Vickie Sampson. Though she has recently turned to directing, Vickie has spent over 40 years editing audio for Hollywood hits like Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Donnie Darko, and The Fifth Element.
“Hummels & Heroin” has some decent commentary about how the elderly are treated, but every other aspect of the episode falls on its face. The humor never gets off the ground. The new characters are boring tropes and the returning cast does nothing remotely interesting in the situation.
Packing in some decent social commentary and a few laughs, “Franchise Prequel” is a good episode that will never make anyone’s “Top 10 South Park Episodes” list. While it won’t win any awards, it’s still better than the majority of season 20.
