LSESU MSS Inter-University Debate 2008

The LSESU MSS Inter-University Debate 2008 will be happening this Saturday 26th January. Turn up to D702 at 2:30p.m and watch as our competitors battle it out in what promises to be some of the most epic intellectual duels you will have ever encountered. Topics to be debated are:·        This house believes that Malaysia is ready to have full freedom of speech.
·        This house believes that Malaysia is ready for gay rights.
·        This house believes that the NEP has been implemented successfully.

So come by for some stimulating and witty banter, and maybe even support the LSE team while you’re at it! Drinks and small snacks (such as curry puffs) will be provided.

Egos will be bruised and dreams will be shattered. Oh and by the way, it’s a friendly event.

A very Merry X’mas and a Happy New Year to all MSS members out there! We hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday and plenty of R&R. As we head into the Lent Term, the MSS would proudly like to present to you…*drum roll*

MSSNite

Due to overwhelming support for us to maintain the traditional talent show concept of MSSNite, the committee has made a decision to move away from our musical and revert to the old school!

MSSNite is an annual charity event that is hosted by the MSS. This year, the committee would like to put on a talent show with a brand new theme – “Kids for Kids”.

It’s undeniable that lurking within every teen, no matter how mature, is a big baby. Even our ever serious and ever grown-up President is known to throw childlike tantrums!

What we want to do is to bring out the inner child in you, and by doing so, we hope that we can put on such a great show that we’ll be able to raise oodles of money for other children less fortunate than ourselves.

This year, MSSNite will be held on Saturday 23rd February and the talent show will be divided into 3 categories:

·        Song
·        Dance
·        Open Category with Prop. Participants in this category may perform any act they wish (dances, sketches, spoofs, etc) as long as they incorporate a selected prop (to be announced) into their act.

Each category will be judged separately, with cash-prizes to be awarded to the winner and runner-up! So dearest members, this is your chance to shine and be a superstar! We are looking for approximately 3 – 4 acts per category, so be sure to get in touch with us quick if you are interested in participating. So if you’re even the tiniest bit interested contact the society via the society’s email or Joy (w.j.feng@lse.ac.uk). Deadline for entry is Wednesday 16th January, with auditions to be held sometime in the third week of term.

Of course, no production like this would be possible without a backstage team. We’ll be needing a hand doing all sorts, including managing props, lighting, sound, “MC-ing” and publicity! So if hogging the spotlight isn’t quite your thing, we’d still love for you to come try your hand at being a superstar off the stage! Once again, those interested should contact the society or Joy (w.j.feng@lse.ac.uk).

The committee is looking to make this our biggest and most successful event of the year (we’re even performing a little something ourselves – you guys are in for a real treat), but we know it won’t be possible without your help. So come along and strut your stuff in the name of charity! Don’t forget ladies and gentlemen, this could your road to LSE superstardom and more…

MSS Christmas Dinner

As the end of term draws ever nearer, and X’mas draws ever closer, the MSS committee would like to invite all its members to a jolly Christmas Dinner at room D302, starting at 7p.m.-8:30p.m on Monday the 10th of December.

Dinner will be a hearty buffet serving a selection of chicken curry, lamb masala, vegetables and Christmas tarts. Christmas Crackers will be provided to add to the festive mood!

Tickets cost £2 (we subsidise loads just for you!) and will be available at a booth along Houghton Street on Monday between 11 – 1p.m. If it rains, we will relocate the booth to Brunch Bowl, 4th Floor Old Building. So bring your friends along to kick start the Christmas Spirit!
