By Se-Ho B. Kim, Crimson Staff Writer

Ideal date: We go to the movies. As we climb the stairs to the back row, I stop. “Oh crap,” I say. “I have to go to a meeting. Sorry.” You look upset, but you bought the ticket already. You make your way, alone, to your seat. The movie is about poor people, terminal illness, and children dying. You exit the theater after two traumatizing hours. Your head spins with fragmented scenes from the film. Your ribs feel like caving in. Your heart feels like a paper crane. It is 9:30 p.m., it is raining, and you have no umbrella.

St. Vincent the musician or “St. Vincent” the 2014 comedy film?: Film by a long shot. Annie Clark sucks.

Favorite will: Shakespeare’s will

Alan R. Xie

My friends would describe me as: A nice guy

Film pitch: So there’s this guy. And he’s this cool, popular dude in a frat and on the school paper, so everybody likes him, you know? But he’s just so soft inside. I mean, just emotionally, he’s always one one-night stand away from breaking. But then he meets this guy, this guy named Jude, and they just connect, you know? It’s confusing at first for them both because they’re just so different. Jude’s this strong, tough—just really resilient in every way. Just the complete opposite of this frat bro. It’s a story about unexpected friendship, intangible lust, and a quadruple homicide. Starring Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen.

Most commonly felt emotion: Regret
