Welcome to GUST Blogs! Each month, we’ll be keeping you in the loop of what’s been happening at your favourite student TV station.
Rest In Power, Patrick Simpson – our Controller was brutally murdered by none other than Kat on the 1st of the month. Fortunately, after the mandated mourning period of 20 minutes we were able to move on; the short films, documentaries and scripts our talented GUSTies have been working on were able to take their minds off the pain. On the 3rd we had a clothing drive to raise money for the station. And then we all got pished at the subcrawl on the 5th! The theme was Netflix and Crawl, so of course we came in with our best TV/film costumes. Truly style icons.
Naturally, we had some great studios this month as well. In Charley’s Lifestyle studio, we took Loose Women and turned it into Tight Men: we think our version is way better. Charlene’s first News studio tested our knowledge of current events with some amusing games. During Martin’s Comedy & Drama studio, Patrick (Rest In Power) was deposed as the head of our station and replaced with Robin, who is clearly way better. Lastly, in Alice’s Science studio, some very tipsy GUSTies played scientist, with hilarious results (as you’d expect).
