Warm and Welcome

We here at Dialogue, INC. are proud to welcome you to our new corporate headquarters. Help yourself to our sleek, high-speed elevators and be sure to check out the view from the 57th floor--it will take your breath away.

Actually, aside from this bloggy new home on the interweb, our real-life command central has been relocated to the deep, dark basement of the Commons Annex. We are now the cute but ferociously hungry pets of the Student Development Office and the Service-Learning Center. Our new digs are a bit smaller, complete with paa├║ca (that's Hindi for 5, I think) cubicles, but we are making do with music and non-fluorescent lighting, new home-made shelves, and of course, our mini-fridge. Stop on by sometime and say hello to us.

Ahem! Getting down to business already--Miranda and I have been talking with each other (and with our new advisor--of Calvin bookstore fame--Justin Lawrence). We have been trying to figure out details and develop amazing new stratagems for our year-long stint as co-editors. In fact, just this morning Miranda and I had an official breakfast/business meeting at Marie Catrib's and, let me tell you, the schemes we concocted were as fresh and spicy as the food on our plates! Here's just a taste of what we've been thinking about:

- weekly meetings
- themed monthly zines
- the Dialogue Archives
- paper airplane posters
- a show at the 106 Gallery
- a Dialogue cookbook!

Cokes and Clubs is coming up soon--on the first day of classes, I believe. I think we're going to make a zine and some posters right then and there, and do it picnic-style.

Well, don't just stand there with your hand in your pockets. You got some bright ideas to contribute, or what?

Dialogue CD - 2008

I just added this past year's CD to the Dialogue Archives (see link above, please). Now you can remind yourself of Miranda's beautiful cover art or, if you've lost your copy already, download all of the tracks. Check it out right here.

Also, there are some truly nice selections scattered across the past 8 years' releases--you should probably check those out while you're at it. (oh! insider recommendations: Egyptian Heat - Flowin' With The Arabic Beat [2007], Juan Garcia - Untruths [2002]).

But really, if you did lose your copy of last year's CD and desperately want a new one, there is a second option: if you order your textbooks for the upcoming semester via Textbook Reservations, you'll likely get a free copy (hey, we had to find some way to disperse the hundreds of leftover discs).

Stay tuned for more life-changing updates. Maybe eventually we'll put up an official introductory post, something to welcome you to our little site and to shake hands with the whole world (wide web) at once...
