Great story.

Have any of you heard about the Patron Music in Motion Tour? It’s an amazing program that’s raising money for music education programs and rebuilding homes in New Orleans. A friend of mine told me that people won an all expense paid trip to Lollapalooza and they’re sending people to the Virgin Mobile Music Festival and you can even win tickets to the VMAS! I am totally signing up! You just create a fundraising page, at www.musicinmotiontour.com

E.P.

This is easily the funniest thing I've read in a long time. What a great post.

If ever a WFMU story called for an MP3 link...

Great story. I thought University of Florida had a weird dorm back in the 80s. East Hall was notorious, but the wildest thing that ever happened there was art students setting sprays from aerosol cans on fire to use as blow torches so they could melt LPs for projects. And other students putting cafeteria food in jars and hiding them in the ceiling to watch the process of rotting.

The security guys (no joke) busted the lock of this poor schmuck's door open and came blazing in like they were hunting the Zodiac Killer. They found him sitting there in front of his keyboard, a Fairlight synthesizer programed with samples he'd recorded from a live chat on a phone sex line (this was the 80's and pay phone sex lines were still a wild new concept, especially for Texas), and huge outdoor sound amplifiers (the kind used for a small outdoor concert) laying on his floor, pointed up and out his room's windows (not too unusual for such students to have that kind of gear). Reportedly he just looked at them with a huge grin on his face, and red hands.

Bruce Hall will always hold a special place in my heart. There was a guy much like this when I lived there as well. Nothing this great happened sadly. All we had was the Punk Rock Weenie Roast.

This is a great story and makes me think of all the crazy fun times I had a dear ol' Bruce Hall.

I lived in Bruce Hall from 1987-1988. I must have just missed the Phone Sex Tape Bandit. Or maybe, being a painting and drawing major, I was just in my own little world and trying to block out all the noise.

I remember when they banned smoking insdie the dorm and it was a huge problem with the students, so they smoked anyway and nobody enforced it. and YES the punk rock weenie roasts! Denton was great.

i lived in bruce hall 1993-1995 - moved out the semester before they put an a/c window unit in every room - thus making any newbies the next fall not quite as tough as the brucelings before them. i remember very well the practice noise & loving almost every blaring minute of it. i was an art major, but the brucelings were my people. the boys wing on the 2nd floor at the front of the dorm had the knickname "the butthouse". about once a month or so, all of 'em would strip down except for a sock on their cock & streak thru all the girls' wings & then straight thru the lobby, past the desk to the front stairs. man, i loved living there... the ultimate college experience. did you ever take the halloween tour thru the haunted attic?
thanx for the quick trip down memory lane...

Great memories! I'm a 86-88 Bruceling. C-300 "The Girls on Top!" I only remember one 40 year old in our dorm at that time, also a jazz pianist - but he looked like a cross of Jim from Taxi and Bill the Cat. We called him "Acid Pete".

Joel

I lived in Bruce from 87-89. I kinda remember acid Pete. Those were fun years. I also remember seeing grade D meat being loaded into the cafeteria. I stuck to the salad and fruit after that.

I sort of lived in and hung around in Bruce Hall in the early nineties and thoroughly enjoyed it and Denton in general. Awesomely beautiful story!

My friends in the "legendary" Denton band Cornhole have a song about Acid Pete...called 'Acid Pete'.
