Ladies and gentlemen:
Today the MOB takes a look at a little-known segment of the Rice community. Journey with us now to the make-believe world of the arts at Rice.
Band runs from sidelines to form two buildings.
Hidden in the musty shadows of the Rice tennis stadium are two showpieces of modern architecture. Known to all of us as Mediocre Center and the Art Barn, these structures house numerous unclaimed works of art and occasional damaged freight. Most importantly, they have provided the opportunity for Rice students to observe the intrinsic cultural value of such epics as "King Kong" and "Behind the Green Door." Join the MOB in their musical cry for continued lusty entertainment – "More, More, More!"
More, More, More
two bloodshot eyes
Nestled in the groin of the Rice campus, the school of architecture meets after curfew every evening in Anderson Hall. Most of what goes on here can only be surmised from rumors and the grafitti which we have read in their restrooms. You may have lived next door to an ARCHI for years and not known it. Next time you pull an all-nighter, take a break and drop by the archi labs – if you dare!
Strangers in the Night
Band marches into an amorphous mass.
Most of the modern sculptures on the Rice campus were hauled away by overzealous garbagemen until Sewall Hall was built to protect them. Now, however, a crazed welder can fuse oil drums to a 55 Chevy and not have to worry about having it towed away. The MOB has formed their own creation entitled "Shootout at the Chewing Tobacco Factory" for your viewing pleasure.
Hey, Look Me Over
Band marches into concert formation.
The year 1975 marked a milestone in Rice cultural history. This was the inaugural year of the Sheepherder School of Music ... and with it came a whole batch of courses which were impossible to schedule. Under the command of Emperor Samerius Jones, the MOB is being mutated into the Marching Owl Orchestra, or the MOO, as it shall come to be known. With us today is the owner of the finest stereo equipment on campus, the Wizard of the Eighth Flat, His Royal Highness, Emperor Jones!
Jones is carried out on a sedan chair while the band plays...
Theme from Bullwinkle
For his guest performance today, the Emp – as he is known by the band – has chosen a challenging piece for our fledgling group entitled "Symphony for Sightless Mice, Opus #3." If you please, Micetro!
Three Blind Mice
Thank you ladies and gentlemen. And remember, one man's trash is another man's treasure. Don't miss the Annual Rice Art Show and Garage Sale.
