Yearly synopsis...
1989-1990: Yeah, back in those days there were stars and planets painted on the walls. Stuck it out in room 280 for the whole year. Fellow detlingites from that year include Chris Gorrilla, the amazing John "The Lantern" Arrington (his fourth year on Detling), Rob "bass player" Zudy, Don Johnson (not from Miami Vice), Matt "horse$%!#" Edelstein, "Ether" Ethan, Gene Falk, and many others. 1990-1991: Roomed with Opie (room 271?) for a week... don't ask. Moved in with Mark "DJ Mixmaster" Tannin (room 280). Hangin' out in the den, femt°AST was born. 1991-1992: Lived with Ed Albrecht (room 283) who finally made it onto Detling. Spent time taking Sanchin Ryu Karate in the den, playing Snow Brothers in the Checkmate, and watching movies at Focus and in the lounge. This was a strange year for relationships. 1992-1993: Lived with Keith Gillette (room 283). Studied math with Jon Weyers till wee hours in Kim's room (while Jen was in mine). Classes kept me busy, but were the most interesting.
