  1. It’s Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. 🙁 I’m sorry for being a butt.

    Your reviews are getting really hard to follow. For the seniors, do the readers a favor and not include random characters like justin bieber or Edward the vampire.
    And how do you get the guts to pound on the juniors with critiques all over the place and still say, “In general, the juniors had a strong performance and we can’t wait to see what they’ll do next year.” There’s a fine line between being nice and plain old irony. And for everyone else, i really don’t think the juniors did as bad as the smoke signal made it look. And i’m not a junior.

  3. Great job, Indiana Juniors did! Stuck in my head, Indiana Jones theme song is!

  4. Just saying the boys booty was crazy good. They defintely deserve some recognition instead of just shirts with hard to read phrases on them.

  5. As amazing as the Junior performance was, there was something about visiting today that sickened me. When the Smoke Signal’s own Mrs. Cohen rampaged through the Senior crowd and tore the papers out of their hands, I was appalled. Despite being rude and harsh, it is the Senior’s decision. She was in no position to come parading through and imposing her will. The Smoke Signal is not her PROPERTY and she has no right to take it away. Let the Seniors do what they wish and then lives with those consequences. But NEVER rip something out of a student’s hands because you don’t agree with it. I am disgusted and I believe that Mrs. Cohen owes Class of 2012 an apology. Horrible behavior by a teacher.

    • One of the many new rules imposed this year includes no taking out newspapers to symbolize boredom. Mr. Larsen was very disappointed in the seniors and Mrs. Cohen definitely had the right to take the papers away from them, as it was a violation of school rules.

    • ARE YOU KIDDING??? Mrs. Cohen had EVERY right to do that. Smoke Signal is her domain! The seniors were abusing their power and deserved to be punished. How can you support immature students over accredited adults. Shame on you!

      • First of all, some people were holding up papers such as the Wall Street Journal, Mercury News, etc.

        Also, Cohen does not own the papers after she distributes it. She has no right to take it back. Troll harder bro.

      • looool check it out, its that troll from the sophomore review XDDDD

        • Obviously a freshman, he is also trolling seniors…. and trying to seem legit by having msjtv in his name. Needs to stop being buthurt about the fact that freshman lost ( which btw happens almost every year)

  6. I know that as a junior, my opinion isn’t going to be taken seriously on a junior class critique, however I really feel that this review didn’t give enough recognition for the best parts of our homecoming. We had really cool and funny characters, a boys’ booty that was beyond amazing, and we really made an effort to make our skit original unlike the common cheesy skit that most classes produce. I know that this review reflects only one perspective of the juniors, but it also in a way represents the school-wide opinion because it is the only review with the school’s name on it that will be read until the yearbook is published. For that reason, I think the writers of the review should have been more thorough so as to include a balance of good and bad, not just a bunch of bad and a few good points.

    • Please keep in mind that the Smoke Signal also publises a more thorough review in the print issue that comes out at the end of the month, so this isn’t the “only review with the school’s name on it that will be read until the yearbook is published”. The online reviewers are under extreme time crunch, so some missing points are understandable. I think we should wait for the actual print issue to come out before we start judging.

  7. I’m a senior and I thought the juniors did great today! The ivy and the skyline was definitely a nice touch. However I felt the backdrop was bland, it was only black, white and gray shadows. I was expecting it to look more like a movie poster. Their three hip hops airbands were really amazing. I don’t blame Alex’s airband, it wasn’t their fault that the music malfunctioned and what else could they do but come back and finish it? They put a lot of work into it. Jason’s hip hop with some contemporary was also really creative, especially with the wigs LOL. Tessa’s was great too. I loved the guy’s dance with the shake-weights. Cheerleading, colorguard, and jazz was a little off though (one of the girls in jazz had her nipples almost showing).

    The characters were very vibrant and the skit was easy to follow. I did enjoy the plot (the sophomore was hilarious!). The tiger was cute too. Also good choice for ending airband song! 😀

    • ALSO if your color is black and you’re doing a hip hop airband, you can’t really expect it to look all that different.

  8. Juniors were a lot better than review gave them credit for.

  9. friendly neighborhood senior | October 19, 2011 at 8:05 pm | Reply

    I feel like the juniors performed better than this review made them look. How could you say that the airband had lack of pride when the technology failed? Put yourself in their shoes and see how u would react. Sure they could have done without the body gestures, but when they came back out the second time it really showed persistence!

  10. And the senior harassment STRIKES YET AGAIN.

    “Those were great, but the backdrop and posters on the amphitheatre didn’t meet my expectations. The backdrop was a bit too simple for my taste, and the posters seemed to be sloppily done.”

    -How dare you criticize something you have no part in making. Why do you insist on harassing underclasses??

    “Speaking of dark, did you get a look at those airband costumes? They all looked the same, black shirts and more black shirts, and some with writing that wasn’t easily read by the audience. And so were the airbands—they all seemed to be hip-hop and nothing else; some variety would have helped.”

    -ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? The costume designs were great. I actually don’t think I’ve seen better. The designs were so much better than the togas you senior bullies wore. How is this constructive criticism at all?

    “However, one of the airbands didn’t really show true spirit when they left the stage after a technical difficulty.”

    -What is defined as “true spirit”?? Is it being a senior? How dare you accuse us of not having “true spirit”. we have just as much spirit as any class!

    “we can’t wait to see what they’ll do next year.”

    -What a shameless attempt to hide the fact that SENIORS wrote this article and that they wont even BE HERE next year.

    Overall I am appalled at the gall the smoke signal has to release YET ANOTHER horrendously insulting review. In fact I think the seniors of Smoke Signal have really pushed it today….For those of you who don’t know, smoke signal staff were caught HANDING OUT SMOKE SIGNALS DURING HOMECOMING so that the seniors could “read them” and be disrespectful. Due to these recurring cases of harassment and insulting I have decided that I WILL complain to Mrs.Cohen and the Homecoming committee.

    Homecoming is supposed to be about competing, and choosing the best class. When Seniors are allowed to create biased reviews and commentaries it gives them an unfair advantage in the competition and ruins the whole point of homecoming!!!!

    • And the troll STRIKES AGAIN.

    • Troll, Yoda believes tmsjtv is!

    • My favorite was:

      “-ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? The costume designs were great. I actually don’t think I’ve seen better. The designs were so much better than the togas you senior bullies wore. How is this constructive criticism at all?”

    • Lovely Junior of '13 | October 19, 2011 at 9:42 pm | Reply

      okay seriously, stop trolling. We juniors don’t need your defense, because we know that we gave it our all and we’re proud of the work we’ve done. This review is solely one way of looking at our performance, and it just represents the facts of what the journalists observed, mixed in with a few subjective ideas blended in here and there. But we can accept this review as honest journalism, and leave it at that. It doesn’t reflect senior superiority, as you shamelessly put it, but rather a journalist’s perspective. So let’s try to make an effort at being unified, and quit harassing the writers of these mini reviews.

  11. Concerned Parent | October 19, 2011 at 9:02 pm | Reply

    As a parent of a student at this school, I’m appalled by the lack of criticism for the gratuitous “booty” dance the skit had. These children are only 15-16 years of age and they’re already selling their bodies for sex? What is this? why does the school tolerate such provocative behavior?

    • Yeah I’m just going to dismiss as a troll? If you think this is “bad” then you have problems. Selling their bodies? Uh what? They were having fun. It’s not like they were stripping naked or humping and grinding each other like OTHER HOMECOMING DANCES IN THE PAST YEARS.

    • Excuse me, but who gave you the right to comment on the site. I dun mean to be disrespectful but parents can’t comment on sites like this. The Smoke Signal and Homecoming is a thing that is strictly reserved for students and mission kids. We as a student body would appreciate it if for once you leave us this sanctuary. I speak for all of us here.

      My son is participating student in the 11th standard. He told me that this website has posted harmful remarks about him and his Friends. I cannot believe that students from Mission San Jose high school would write such things. This high school is ranked at the top of the list, but i see that the students are ragging on each other disrespectful to elders. i as a parent have all the right to enter this site okay. it is us who must look out for the safety of our children. And I too have seen the dances that these children are performing, it is not correct behaviour for highschool student. I’m afraid I will have to report these comments and behaviour and some students may be reprimanded.

      • random mission kid | October 19, 2011 at 9:38 pm | Reply

        this conservative attitude is exactly what is wrong with the word

      • Our comments may have been disrespectful towards you, but nothing we said was outright offensive, obscene, or threatening, so you have no right to report “us.” We have not violated any school policies. Seriously? Nothing you complained about pertained to the safety of your kids, only that “the booty dance was provocative and the kids were selling themselves for sex which they weren’t.” If anything THAT’S a ridiculously offensive statement.

      • I also don’t see ANY harmful remarks made about anyone.

        With all due respect, I dont believe you have the foresight to udnerstand if these dances are even harmful or not. I am not an opponent of a conservative parenting style, unfortuanetly your views on these dances crosses the fine line between rational conservative parenting and steps into the territory of overly concerned, irrational parenting. These dances are an integral part of a fun homecoming and to submit complaints about them leads only to even more restrictions on an already restricted homecoming. It is these sorts of comments and complaints that has lead us to where we are now: a homecoming that dosent even allow decoration of the whole school, one that dosent even allow for a proper senior lounge, one that is so restricted that we cant even choreograph a single move in a dance without referring to a handbook of oppressive rules. To address your concerns about your son, all I can say is that a great deal of students at mission disagree with these harmful remarks and that they are more likely than not the result of a small number of students that DO NOT represent our entire school.

        I’d like to see these types of parents try to find a school with less sex and drugs. HA

      • You make no sense. How are you going to report the comments when most of these people are using aliases. If you don’t like your child participating in these events I suggest you move or just don’t allow your child to participate in these events.

      • i as a parent have all the right to enter this site okay.

      You are dumb.

    • The booty dances are traditions that go back many, many years. The school has been trying to make an effort to try to control the “provacative” behavior, much to the dismay of ALL the students. They have threatened to give us last place and suspend anyone who participates in one that is considered inappropriate. The booty dances are considered funny and entertaining to us, and no one is “selling their bodies for sex.” If you really don’t like these, then please don’t watch. Homecoming is meant for the students, not for the parents. We work extremely hard in order to make it enjoyable for our class as well as all the other grades, but complaints like these are what makes homecoming stressful and unfair to all of us. We’ve already had so many traditions taken away and rules placed, and we just want to have fun. And technically, aren’t parents not even allowed on campus during the school day? Just saying.

      I can see why as a parent you might be concerned, however it should be known that these sorts of comments and concerns are what takes away the fun from homecoming. Already the booty dance faced great restrictions in what they were allowed to perform and I really feel that the fear of children “selling their bodies for sex” in a booty dance is quite ridiculous. I have great doubts that any of the booty dancers aspire to become catamites and male strippers……

    • I honestly cannot wait until you watch the senior’s homecoming tomorrow. Really. Or you can just rewatch the one from last year.

    • dear tiger mom,

      your argument is suprisingly valid, mission is definetely churning out prostitites by the truckload, which is why you see them working the streets of fremont, shaking their booties off.

      trust me. the previous years homecomings had much more skin

    They’re actually 16-17 years of age.
    15-16 would be us sophomores and we did fine :DD
    and i’ve never encountered a junior selling their bodies to me for sex.

  13. wrote this review, SOPHOMORES and seniors did! invalid, your argument is!

  14. YEAHHHH GO SENIORS!!!! JUNIORS SUCKED TODAY WOOOOBAMMMMM

    • Stop screaming out Woobam during homecoming. Homecoming is meant for the representation of the classes as a whole. Inside jokes as such just come off as obnoxious, especially when you guys scream this in the middle of the skits of other classes when they are in no way pertinent to your class as a whole and the skit.

  15. lul once again SS is waaay too harsh on 2013. every year without fail this happens. yay SS you guys are so predictable.

  16. The booty dances are traditions that go back many, many years. The school has been trying to make an effort to try to control the “provacative” behavior, much to the dismay of ALL the students.

  17. It isn’t even as bad as when i was a student at msj… but just wait till you see the seniors, they always got something good up their sleeves

  18. OH THAT’S GREAT. I see that the Smoke Signal is deleting comments. Isn’t this newspaper supposed to preach freedom of speech. Well I guess censorship is a form of that eh?

  19. I can see why Juniors are pissed off about this review.I don’t blame them. The Sophomore review was positive, but SS seemed to pick out the smallest details of the Junior’s performance just to make them look bad on purpose.(Okay,”writing on the costumes that aren’t easily readible for the audience”? That’s def. taking it too far for no reason other than to pick on them. costumes are costumes.) Also, criticizing Juniors for “poorly made posters?” Cmon guys, they looked fine; also the point about the posters falling which made it difficult for stage crew makes NO SENSE AT ALL. I feel as if this is the most obviously biased review so far this week. This “review” doesn’t even completely review the actual skill/entertainment factor of airbands and skit….

    Things I noticed:
    1. I don’t know if it was just me, but I was more interested by the ivy falling off the stage sometimes than by the skit.
    2. The Shake Weight that rolled off the stage and ripped the poster…was amazing.
    3. Parents, please do voice your concerns. also, do not put your real names on the internet.

      “The Shake Weight”

      what the heck did i miss.

      • Please Don't Feed Trolls | October 19, 2011 at 10:51 pm | Reply

        One junior had this Shake Weight thing, and when he was done with it, he put it on the ground, and it slowly rolled towards the edge of the stage, tension in the crowd growing as they notice that no one was picking it up. Laughter ensued when it slipped off the edge, taking out the banner that was posted on the lip of the stage.
        Epic.

  21. Honestly this review is pretty harsh on the juniors, they did pretty good I have to admit, and the technical difficulties weren’t their fault so you cant blame the dancers for being a little peeved. I’m not really a fan of the juniors’ attitudes though. I kept hearing left and right, oh yeah we beat the sophomores, oh yeah we definitely won, oh yeah we probably beat the seniors… Really now? LOL I mean the juniors did really well but their deco wasnt all that great, and their airbands, although they were very great, were also really repetitive. Im not trying to bash im just giving constructive criticism, cause i still thought they did well but DAAAAMN were they cocky. Theres a difference between having spirit and being a ****. And definitely NOT all, but SOME juniors were just that.

    • Are you kidding me? Have you HEARD the sophomores? They are SOOOOOO cocky. All day today and yesterday I’ve been hearing “dude your deco sucks omg did you see our bridge omg we were so awesome and amazing we’re so beating the juniors.” The sophomores did REALLY well but they are too cocky. Yes, the bridge was pretty legit it was amazing but other than that…there really wasn’t anything else to the deco. But we had the hanging numbers, the pyramids with the “2013”, the snake pits, the bridge, the cave, plus we actually COVERED the grass with tarp. lol sophomores.

      • when i walked through the tunnel, i got a mouthful of cotton

      • What did you expect from a class that had some members trash a senior lounge last year?

      • sorry, but i’m a sophomore, and i think every single class has that handful of people who go around saying “WE’RE THE BEST” and labeling one class overall as cocky sort of sucks for the rest of the class and often times starts unnecessary drama. yes we are proud of ourselves, as every other class is, but the majority of us don’t think “dude your deco sucks omg did you see our bridge omg we were so awesome and amazing we’re so beating the juniors”. i know a large portion of us have deep respect for both the juniors’ and seniors’ performance and would never want to seem disrespectful. and yes people from our class did go into the senior lounge last year, but none of them trashed it, and that was a very small amount of people, and i know several deeply regretted it

      • dude…u can’t judge a few sophmores and say that everyone is like that. Sophmores have a right to be pround, and there are cocky people in every class.
        stop hatin’ bro

    • ^Exactly. Do you even know how cocky the sophomores are? Juniors are confident, but they don’t go around talking about how they’re going to “beat the seniors.” Juniors know their place. Apparently, sophomores don’t. They need to get a wake up call and realize that they will never beat the juniors.

      • Once again like i said, NOT all, but SOME juniors were being very cocky. And you too just kind of proved my point…. I didnt really mention the sophomores at all in what i said but now that you bring them up and i know that youre juniors im disregarding everything you say knowing that its biased. I heard a lot of people talking about the sophomores bridge, but you know what? A majority of those people weren’t even students, they were faculty and some parents! I even heard BRANDY say that it was the best deco that she had seen in 12 years. I thought they happened to do a pretty good job. And i said the juniors deco wasnt all that great but that doesnt mean i thought theirs was bad, i happened to think theirs was rather nice. But look at what you JUST said:

        “we had the hanging numbers, the pyramids with the “2013″, the snake pits, the bridge, the cave, plus we actually COVERED the grass with tarp. lol sophomores.”

        Yea so thats nothing like what you claim the sophomores said about their bridge right?… And to the other person, you say the sophomores are the cocky class right?

        “Juniors know their place. Apparently, sophomores don’t. They need to get a wake up call and realize that they will never beat the juniors.”

        …… i really have nothing to say to that, that’s pretty much self explanatory, you couldnt have said anything more demeaning than that right there.

        I saw the sophomore bridge, and it was pretty legit and looked well thought out. A lot of people were talking about it. Not just sophomores, but actually a LOT of Seniors were saying that the sophomores did really well. So that tears a hole in your whole “sophomores are SOOOOOOOOO cocky” theory.
        I also saw the juniors cave, and thought it was a cool idea along with the pyramids and vines, but the cave kind of copied off the seniors last year and it wasnt that original in my opinion. I still thought the hanging numbers were cool! But that alone doesnt distinguish their deco. I heard a lot of sophomores saying how they actually liked the juniors deco, but from what i see here, you guys are saying the exact opposite and being as cocky as you claim them to be.

        I thought both the Juniors and the Sophomores did very well on their days. But as far as my opinion on cockyness goes, i think you know where i stand. You guys just proved my point.

        • “I saw the sophomore bridge, and it was pretty legit and looked well thought out. A lot of people were talking about it. Not just sophomores, but actually a LOT of Seniors were saying that the sophomores did really well. So that tears a hole in your whole “sophomores are SOOOOOOOOO cocky” theory.”

          are you stupid LOL. I just said they did well. Just because they did well doesn’t mean they’re not cocky. LOLOLOL honestly you don’t even know the difference between “two” and “too” so.

      • I’m a junior, and I don’t know what school you go to, but I’m pretty sure little to no sophomores at Mission are going around claiming they’re going to “beat the seniors.” Or even beat the juniors – they’re all just proud that they stepped up their game by a lot compared to last year. It’s pretty much our grade and the seniors spreading around that line, but honestly, while the sophomores were awesome, I doubt they’ll beat 2013.

        They were simply happy that they pulled a wonderful homecoming off, and most all sophomores I talked to today had mad respect for the excellent performance the junior class pulled together.

        On another note, we juniors did AMAZING today. I think it was so much better than last year, even though this review was pretty critical. The skit was hilarious and smooth, the airbands were forceful and clean, and so much spirit<3

        • I like what you had to say.
          And i never said the sophomores claim theyre going to beat the seniors, i said i heard SOME juniors claim that.
          People say the sophomores are being cocky but theyre just happy they did well.

    • LOL VICTOR????????

  22. I honestly thought the juniors were very impressive this year. The skit was hilarious, especially with the sophomore who good read “thug speak.” The cave was also very clever. The cobwebs certainly gave it a spooky feel. Compared to the sophomore review, I think smoke signal was just a bit too harsh on the juniors. It was all praises and admiration to the sophomores, but bashing to the juniors. Yes, there were some places that could have used improvement, but overall, it was a solid performance. Good job Juniors.

    And Go Seniors!

  23. The Juniors were so freaking horrible. I actually don’t think that they even deserve 2nd place, in fact I think that the freshman were 100x better. Stupid little wannabes shouldn’t have even done a skit

    GO SENIORS!!!!!!

    • That’s a horrible thing to say to someone. I thought they were amazing! They obviously put a lot of hard work into this.

  24. The WOOBMENT’S GREAT SENIOR HAIKU

    Senior’s are slick

    Junior’s suck …

    Sophomores, bad class

    Freshman, kiss …

  25. i am a senior, and i hate how you guys are pointing out minor mistakes and trying to make the juniors look bad. i think the juniors performed really well. you’re almost making it sound like there were more bad parts than good. and not only that, you don’t even take into account the fact that they put in huge amounts of effort – the decorations that slightly went off wasn’t THEIR fault. the freshmen and the sophomores (and most likely, the seniors as well) have all suffered the same problem, but no one really cares – not unless if it’s something huge.
    another note: if you’re not happy, cool. no one wakes up everyday to meet your expectations. i expected the smoke signal to make some good comments and have an unbiased view on the performances. obviously i was mistaken, and it’s saddening, really.
    as for the seniors, im sure we will perform admirably tomorrow. however, harassing other classes, writing biased reviews and making snide remarks isn’t cute. grow up and be respectful to others.

    • No you aren’t a senior. A senior wouldn’t admit that crap like this deserves praise. The cold hazard truth is that all of the other classes are utter bull-crap.. Only the WOOBAM seniors are superior! GO SENIORS SCREW ERRYTHING ELSE!!!! WOOOOOBAM

  26. How were the airbands all hip hop and the same when they had colorguard, cheerleaders, lyrical, and boys booty perform. those seem pretty different to me….

  29. junior involved in all aspects of homecoming (but not an officer) | October 20, 2011 at 6:58 am | Reply

    Honestly…really guys?
    You guys don’t know the shenanigans that went down this whole summer for us Juniors. It was hard for us and after the sophomore hc day, almost all of our whole class practically gave up on us. They said that “We can’t beat the sophomores. Our officers suck…etc” It was a major put down. Especially since this whole summer, practically only 14 or so people (INCLUDING the officers. amazing how many people from our class helped us right?) helped out with deco. For skit, I don’t remember anytime having EVERYONE that was supposed to be there…be there. People simply were NOT dedicated and did not give a rat’s a@* about it. For airbands, we worked our asses off. Some airbands were practicing the whole summer, even for a month or so in the previous school year.

    Once our class walked into the amphitheater and saw how amazing our deco was (especially the hanging 2013, which btw shouldn’t be criticized just for leaving shadows. want to remove shadows? alright go bend the laws of science then.) the class of 2013 FINALLY began to have faith. The homecoming crew of 2013 were so unbelievably happy to see this. Yes, maybe we were a little too cocky at times, but no need to be so nitpicky about our presentation.

    our back drop is BLACK. the whole amphitheater area was BLACK. so of course, our airband costumes are going to be EFFIN’ BLACK. I’m sorry. do you want us to wear all white? or wear purple? something that does NOT represent our class color? and wow, way to effin’ call out that girl who almost “had her nipples showing” when she wasn’t even close. Way to call her out. Really mature.

    Our airbands were amazing. You, in fact, should be in AWE of that girl who had a costume malfunction because she ignored it in order to make that performance happen. If she had pulled it up, then you guys would have criticized her for that. Also, Alex’s airband would be angry that that would happen, wouldn’t you? Maybe, the angry gestures weren’t necessary but it was so unexpected, so last minute, that they were taken by surprise. Btw, I don’ recall being able to see what the sophomores put on their shirts, why don’t you call them out for that then hmm?

    You did not mention any good aspects, only the bad, with one person trying to dissaude the other. I don’t see any mention of how witty our skit was, the 2013 obelisk/pyramids. Our backdrop was straight to the point. Our tiger is the cutest thing you’ll ever see on that stage.

    I seriously see no mention of how the skit went well or how good the airbands were, nor how well decoration was. I just see how much we “screwed up” WHEN we did NOT even screw up as much as this review says we did.

    This review is super ironic. Whoever EV is, well it’s obvious that he despised the Junior class.

    Look, I usually agree with our homecoming reviews. I usually don’t comment on this. But this one is so blatantly obviously biased. Maybe my own comment is too biased but I’m so frustrated right now, I don’t even care.

        Free Woobum!

      • We’re really sorry if we were cocky, because I know some people in our class were. Not all of us are, though.
        I for one thought that occasionally some of them were way too loud and obnoxious, and I apologize for them.z
        But seriously, all of your guy’s hc day was amazing (:

      Hello Dear Poser,
      T’is I, the actual Mission Man. First off, I hate no one, except trolls (glares at you). Also, Calm down everyone. This is a review. It represents the opinion (keyword: OPINION) of the authors. It does not affect your points or the decision as to who won. All this hate is getting us nowhere and further dividing the classes over a satirical article being taken too seriously.
      Once more, please stay calm.
      Sincerely,
      Mission Man (yes, it’s me)

  32. How did that one airband not show true spirit. I get that even if they went on no one would understand because they’d be dancing to no music. You can’t say they have no true spirit since they went on after the technicality was fixed.

  33. Basically, Juniors were great. Nihar, Michelle, Neha, and Emily. I aologize on behalf of all the peole in our class who talked crap and doubted you guys. You guys had a lot on yoyr plate. I heard that most of deco was done by you four. Most ppl dont know how hard you worked, but yesterday proved your guys’ preserverance amongst all the negativity that has happened the past 7 months since elections. You all did work

  34. lacking.

  35. eh, (soph here) i guess the reason why we’re so proud of the bridge was because at deco we really thought our designs were gonna be a flop and the other classes are going to eat us up alive, so we were surprised when it worked out alright in the end. sorry if we’d seemed too “cocky” about everything.
    other than that, i thought the junior skit was awesome. indiana jones for life.

    “EV: However, one of the airbands didn’t really show true spirit when they left the stage after a technical difficulty.

    BB: They made it really obvious by angrily gesturing at the DJ station, and even more obviously so when they came on to finish their dance later on.”

    I have to agree with this. No one could tell they messed up until they started pointing and gesturing. Even if something does go wrong, just PRETEND that nothing happened. The music didn’t even stop in the middle of a move or anything.. But I really liked the juniors’ performance. I think the voices for the characters were really entertaining. And the seniors who think that being represented by Marcus was a diss, I didn’t think so. Marcus seemed like such a warm, kind person, absentminded, but in the adorable grandparent way. 🙂

    Anyways unless all of the above are trolls, don’t worry so much about what Smoke Signal writes about every class. Just be proud and have spirit, make homecoming fun!

    this thread contains pretty much each and every class’s flaws
    sucks that 99% of the good people in each class aren’t represented in this.

  38. Why did you all have to be so racist to indians????

  39. Juniors Suck. Plain and Simple.

  40. What happened to this unity thing?
