Williams & Williams in the Morning – January 27, 2017

SPORTS SHOW, SPORTS GUYS. Thats us and that was the topic of the show this week. Some may ask, hey, what the hell do these guys know about sports? The answer is not much but we try hard. We did a little reminiscing about the glory days, and shared our favourite sports story. Shoutout Marc’s cousin Jimmy whose boys are taking on the New York Rangers this weekend up in Alaska, and shoutout legendary hockey coach Red Kelly for imparting some wisdom on Troy in peewee. Also shoutout Patrick Doodoocock, O-Lineman for the Cincinnati Bengals and Neil Kneecapison, catcher in the San Fransisco Giants farm system…two of the greatest completely real names in sports. We also named our favourite sports mascots, and the Philly Phanatic has to be #1, the guy is green. Hilarious.

As always we wrapped up with Friday’s Four* top sports cliches. They are:

  1. “Well yah know uh”
  2. “I’d like to thank God”
  3. “Get pucks deep and get to work”
  4. “The boys played hard we just didn’t get the bounces”

Classic phrases. Thanks again for tuning in on Radio Laurier and on Facebook Live, we won’t see you next weekend, because we’re on the radio, but you can hear us. Have a good weekend and party without the smoke.

Here is Audio from the first half of the show:

The Morning After feat. Joseph Small

This week on The Morning After DJ Goldilocks and DJ O$AP had the opportunity to sit down with one of the candidates campaigning for the Student’s Union Board of Directors, as well as for the Laurier Board of Governors. His name is Joseph Small and he is a second year Economics and Accounting major who wants to see real change come to Laurier, specifically in the communication between the Student’s Union and the student body.

The main take away from his campaign is his primary goal to increase efficiency in addressing the concerns of students and improve the system in which students are able to voice their opinions. Joseph believes he is the candidate to accomplish the necessary changes because he brings a unique perspective and has an action plan prepared to start guiding the Student’s Union in the right direction towards improving the flow of communication. After sitting down with several students Joseph realized that many students feel very disconnected from the Student’s Union despite their presence on social media such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat.

As a result of these conversations his goal in pursuing this position has become to break down the overall feeling of exclusivity of the Student’s Union through the creation of a new social media platform. Ideally Joseph wants to create a website exclusive to the Laurier community where students are able to post anonymously, or with their student number attached if they so choose, any questions, comments, or concerns that they deme important or feel should be addressed by the Student’s Union. He also wants to increase the flow of information out to the students from the Student’s Union; for example, he would like to post the main discussion points from the board’s weekly meetings on this website so that students have the ability to voice their concerns and opinions on current issues and initiatives taking place. He believes this approach will help students feel more engaged with their school and increase student involvement in the Laurier community.

Joseph has a great deal of experience in financial roles, such as Finance Director in his House Council, a payroll clerk and a professional book keeper. He believes these positions have prepared him for the roles he is pursuing because they have allowed him to gain experience in fiscal management – how budgeting works and how to implement initiatives in a cost-efficient way. He believes these experiences have provided him with the skills and knowledge on compromising the desirable and what’s feasible.

Williams & Williams in the Morning – January 20, 2016

Deep. Blue. Filled with uncertainty. No, we’re not talking about Troy’s eyes, we’re talking about the ocean. This week’s show was jam packed with everything ocean-related you can think of. We shared our own ocean experiences, whether or not we’re ocean guys (we’re not), tried to name every ocean (we couldn’t), and set the over/under of how many times we’d say “ocean” at 50 (eclipsed that). We were also honoured to have our first real life guests on the show, Mikhayla Rice and Brooklyn Ramsey from Laurier’s Her Campus chapter. This was exciting stuff for us because we got to talk to other humans in person, and them being girls was a bonus. They chatted about Her Campus’ event this Saturday, January 21st at Turret Nightclub on campus (go) and for some reason kept insisting that the rumours of it being a beach themed party are false. We then got into our Friday’s Five, naming 5 facts about the ocean that absolutely nobody else knows. They are:

5 ) The ocean is salty cause the land never waves back

4 ) The ocean is actually not the only body of water you can swim in

3 ) 4 out of 5 sharks prefer fresh water

2 ) The ocean has a plus-10 for parties, so if you invite it to one you’ll get Ocean’s 11

1 ) “Ocean” is spelt the way it sounds

We know, these facts are definitely going to come in handy sometime down the road. Another week in the books, we want to thank Mikhayla and Brooklyn for getting up early and coming on the show, and as always thanks for listening. Leave the smoke at home.

Williams & Williams in the Morning – New Year Same Show! – January 13, 2017

Marc and Troy carrying out their famed figure skating routine.

We made it through another New Year’s Eve and are back for another semester of hot, sweaty radio fun. Not much has changed on the show front, we’re still saying whatever comes to mind and probably losing listeners in the process. We both had eventful Christmas breaks, one of us more so than the other, but we’re still breathing and lived to tell the tale. Our show covered all the hot (and cold) topics in Friend or Foe, such as fire, ice, trees, final semesters, cheering at the bar during sports games, and why the heck Caesar salad and sweet potato fries cost more. We talked a little Big League Banter about Edwin flying South all the way to Cleveland, the Leafs flirting with a playoff spot, and the Raptors coming back down to Earth. We also talked Golden Hawks of course, with Men’s Hockey facing two Quebec teams this weekend and some great people winning athletes of the week, congrats. Lastly, our Friday’s Five featured things that help you keep warm, while staying cool. The list went as follows:

5 ) Customized Quilt

4 ) Itchy Scarf

3 ) Carry literally any hot beverage around

2 ) Layers…but not too many layers

1 ) Make your own fire to impress the ladies

All extremely easy things that you can wear/do to make sure you stay warm but still be cool! Thanks for tuning in, let’s do it again next week.

The Morning After The New Year; Kissing 2016 Goodbye

Welcome back to The Morning After, 2017 edition! What better way to kiss goodbye to 2016, than a full hour of The Weeknd’s Kissland album? Even with all of the new music released over the past year, including Starboy, the Kissland album has remained a staple in DJ Goldilock’s and DJ O$AP’s music playlists.

This year Laurier took a total of 11 days for their winter break, while most other schools took an additional 6 days off before starting classes. 11 days is not a lot of time, so here’s to hoping you made the best of it! Over the break DJ Goldilocks an DJ O$AP had the opportunity to attend a work Christmas party for Victoria Star Motors, where DJ Goldilocks experienced hypnotism for the first time! That’s right, DJ O$AP had a good laugh watching Goldilocks make a fool of herself while she summer salted around the dealership, acted as Austin Powers, and trying to steal a 30 ft Christmas tree! Any skepticism from O$AP before the show had definitely dwindled by the end of the performance, stay tuned on our Facebook page for some funny clips from the performance!

New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest events across the country every year, but is it really worth the hype? O$AP may argue that it’s not, especially after his sub-par experience this year at a country bar in London. In past years, Goldilocks had not had the best experiences on New Year’s Eve and had a difficult time getting hyped for it this year. But it may have been this very lack of excitement that made her night so enjoyable; going into the event with very low standards meant that there was no way she could be disappointed. In fact, this was her best New Year’s Eve yet! She went to Bar 244 in Toronto with her best friend and a fantastic group of girls. The music was on point and they did nothing but dance all night long! Maybe the key to having a good time is to set the bar really low… then there’s no where to go but up!

2016 may be over…. But 2017 is just getting started! Laurier is starting the year off with a bang, as this coming week is crazy busy the Laurier community! No matter what you’re into, there’s something for you; Student Union Presidential Elections begin this week, Winter Carnival officially kicks off, and there’s a full week of free group exercise and dance classes being offered in the AC! If you have yet to get involved at Laurier, this is an excellent week to experiment a little bit and find your niche. O$AP is a captain of the Winter Carnival team, Rock Bottomest and although they don’t plan on winning any particular events, you can guarantee they will be having the best time! You can catch Goldilocks in the AC attending her favourite dance classes: burlesque and advanced hip hop!

We hope you all take full advantage of this week and get involved in the incredible Laurier community! Tune in next week!!

It was our last show of the semester, so we had to pull all the strings to get our best guest appearance to date: Santa. We know there’s a lot of rumours about his existence but he squashed all those by showing up in studio today. Since he’s used to answering fan mail, as are we, he responded to some questions we received on social media. Most notably, that the secret to succeeding at his time-sensitive job is Google calendars. Who knew… Apart from shooting the crap with Santa, we looked back on a great semester and looked forward to our Holiday plans, especially the dreaded New Years Resolutions.

Our top 5 resolutions were:

5) Stop socializing so much and spend more time on our phones.

4) Gain weight.

3) Try not to let our good looks make us insecure.

2) 1080 p.

1) Writing down everything we did on NYE night and writing “stop” before them.

Best of luck to everyone in their battles against their resolutions, I don’t think we stand a chance with ours. Thanks to all our listeners for a great semester and you’ll hear from us in January! Happy Holidays. Party Without The Smoke
