MoGone [Demolition Update#2]

In this second installment of the Demolition of MoCon Saga, we find McConaughy Hall now reduced to a pile of rubbish.  The metal and glass cylinder that was exclusive to MoCon on campus, is no more.

Meanwhile, The Middletown Press seems to have just realized the issue now that demolition is already underway.  Click here to catch up on some good ol’ townie Wes-hatred in the comments (the article has no new info).

More good pictures after the jump.

There are also some great pictures commemorating the life of MoCon as well as depicting it’s destruction on the ‘Save MoCon‘ facebook group.  Click here for one of an alumna dressed as MoCon for Halloween 1985.

    And such a wesleyan name…..
    I just want to add that the beginning critiques on the article (named “good ol’ townie wes hatred” by the poster of mogone) were critiques of the institution, not the students at wes. I have had many critiques of wesleyan as a school in my time there (for example, how many of us are upset that they are destroying mocon). To respond to those frustrations with personal attacks on the residents of middletown who are a diverse group that cannot all be represented in a few words is just gross.

    It’s a shame that you believe that all Middletown residents are like the people that do most of the posting about the Press articles…you are judging the whole city on those few who seem to post simply for sake of posting…and I wonder how many of those who are continuously complaining about anything and everything actually voted in the elections or have ever tried to do anything else except put their tiresome complaints up on these posts…

    Where are the on-line editors to delete these posts? This has gotten truly out of line.

    hey townie,

    ignore the the shallow, self-centered and simplistic comments of “johnny wesleyan student” whether not they were trolling they are still obnoxious and completely lacking an understanding of his own ridiculous privilege. and they idea of an entire city of people “sucking” is ridiculous and follows the same principles as racism.

  10. A townie, that apparently "sucks"

    Johnny Wesleyan student, who says we don’t share in your plight? You seem to be blaming townies as a whole, but I have been robbed from! Plenty of “townies” have been beaten, raped, mugged, robbed, and murdered! So shut up, go back to Westport or wherever you come from, and eat your Whole Foods pasta.

    I am perfectly willing to admit that Wesleyan brings something great to Middletown. I readily admit it. I also readily admit that Middletown is less than ideal. Don’t insult our children, our parents, our sisters, our brothers, that live, work, and play in Middletown because they happen to LIVE here. So don’t prance around, shouting “townies suck” and think that you’re justified in making such a biased and idiotic remark.

    PS – Noa is your typical townie apologist.

    PPS – Why is it that Wesleyan is always doing the apologizing, when we are the ones that are robbed, mugged, intimidated, and assaulted?

    I meant every fucking word of what I said in my comment. I was not trolling.

    Someone has to speak on our behalf. Someone has to tell these townies that enough is enough. Someone has teach them what is right.

    Townies fucking suck. End of story. They are so unwilling to admit that we bring anything good to their shit town. It is disgusting. Look at EVERY fucking town nearby. All shit.

    Fuck fucking townies. I am taking a fucking stand.

    Don’t take the whining in the MidPress blog seriously. It is well known that since the Press doesn’t screen the blog (unless there’s just been a major explosion e.g. KleenEnergy and the nation is reading it) so there are some maturity-impaired individuals who regularly use it for spewing meaningless vitriol about anything and everything, the more ad-hominem the better. For a better (or at least differently-biased) view, read Middletown Eye.

    @Noa – actually, most articles that have anything to do with Wes (including, mind you, the articles about Johanna) have included bashing of Wes students. So the “ol'” is referring to that.

    But it’s true, that Johnny character is out of line – probably trolling.

    “good ol’ townie Wes-hatred?”

    Okay there are two comments venting about Wesleyan and one ridiculously childish and insulting post by a ‘Wesleyan student’ bashing Middletown.

    In four years, I did NOT see Wes-bashing come up as a major problem in Middletown — of course there are some frustrated people — but let’s not start fires where there aren’t any.

    On a different note, I thought that all the cool mocon post titles were used up after “Mococolypse Now” but this is pretty good.
