Something exciting from Method Magazine:
We’re re-booting the print edition of Method, a student-run arts magazine, and want YOUR work to be featured in it. We encourage any and all art submissions. The deadline to submit by is March 1st. You can send your work to methodsubmissions[at]gmail[dot]com. If you have any questions feel free to e-mail us.
There’s no submission deadline but get on this asap, probably.
Please note that this is all in good, light-hearted fun, and we think Method is doing cool work.
Today, we saw a Facebook event for Method’s pop-up art show called LOADED, and we couldn’t help but notice that much of the description of said event bore an uncanny resemblance to the language of artist, pop culture icon, and Twitter legend Jaden Smith.
Thus, we have come up with a quiz of 12 quotes: 6 are from Method’s event description, and 6 are from Jaden Smith’s Twitter account. However, we ordered them randomly, and it’s up to you to figure out who wrote what. In other words, was it Method or was it Jaden?
To make it harder, we’ve taken a page out of Mr. Smith’s playbook and capitalized every word in each quote. Answers are included at the end of the post.
From our friends at Method:
What is MethodTV? Shit. Find out.

Don’t miss Method Magazine’s fantastic roundup of this season’s funniest, cleverest, and most creative Halloween costumes at Wes. Method writes:
I stand firmly by the belief that the creation of a true Halloween costume is an art. Like other forms of creative expression, the costume maker seeks to constantly push the boundaries of what it means to be ‘a costume,’ making the viewer question themselves, the world around them, and whether they have had too much to drink that night or if they are, in fact, looking at a person who is dressed as a fiesta.
Don’t miss the hand-crafted Four Loko costume masterpiece—if that’s not art, I seriously don’t know what is. Also, submit your own sorely neglected faves to methodmagazine(at)gmail.com.
Last week I posted some notes and photos from Bear in Heaven’s fantastic 10/2 show at Eclectic. Friday’s Argus also covered the show in a lengthier review, pointing out a flattering post-show Facebook update from the band: “Did we mention last nights [sic] show at Wesleyan was off the charts? Finally some serious crowd surfing.” (Almost as cool as that one time Up in the Air director Jason Reitman wouldn’t shut up about how cool we are.)
If you missed the show (you know who you are), turns out you’re not completely hopeless—our friends over at Method Magazine got some excellent, close-up video of the show (plus interview footage with the band, who seem convinced it’s their “best show ever!”):
Bear in Heaven played at the Eclectic Society on Saturday, October second. Method Magazine and c9 Productions bring you the first episode in a series of live concert and interview videos that capture the 2010-2011 Wesleyan music scene.
Sweet—click past the jump for some professional video samples (extra points if you can spot yourself, as I did at 3:52), and here’s hoping Method videographers will be on scene for Xiu Xiu on Wednesday (details coming soon). Seriously a fantastic project all-around:
