    exclusive interview with university of western ontario current student and former saugeen zoo resident 

    paige from paige six

    busblog: hi baby

    paige six helloo hellooo!

    busblog: so are you too tired to do this in this chat? it will be slower than a podcast

    paige six i can do it… im not really drunk or anything

    busblog: ok cool

    busblog: ready?

    paige six yep!

    busblog: ok paige six six six i adore you
    busblog: and i want you
    busblog: badly

    paige six hee hee, i like where this interview is going

    busblog: but first you must tell us what its like in London Ontario
    busblog: specifically at your school Western
    busblog: are
    the kids talking about it, or is it old news?

    paige six well UWO has this reputation you see. or at least, we like to think we have a reputation.

    honestly, we are a party school, we do go out more than other uni kids i know, we do get drunk more often, our class schedules are easier
    than per say, UfT (university of toronto).. or at least I think so, because no
    one at UWO has class on friday and everyone at UfT does but the whole party reputation
    really is from the 1980s-90s the school admin got super concerned about the rep
    and totally locked down in the late 90s on all partying and insurance and liability…
    so as much as UWO kids like to say that we go to an insane school.. it’s not like
    it once was

    paige six now Saugeen..
    where the stripper thing was.. Saugeen in itself has a whole other reputation.
    it is a rez which holds 1252 people. the third largest rez in North America, the
    largest in Canada. people think that david letterman or playboy once said that
    it was the "second most likely place to get laid in NA" but that is
    just a rumour and has never been confirmed.

    paige six not to say that its not a wild place, and not to say that the kids
    who live there don’t try and live up to said reputation.. but it’s not as insane
    as people like to think it is.. it’s just like any other first-year student rez
    in NA so basically.. UWO is this: a place which attracts people who want to party,
    and so people in first year try and fullfill the reputation as much as they can

    busblog: my kinda place

    paige six ha ha,
    that’s what i thought when i lived there
    paige six though, when I got my acceptance into rez I cried. a lot of kids FREAK out when
    they get into saugeen because of it’s bad rep
    paige six and parents hate it even more.. like during oweek.. so many kids
    ask "does saugeen really smell like sex?"
    paige six most people from other universities ask this too
    paige six stupid generalizations

    busblog: shouldnt it smell of beer and weed?

    paige six
    ooh it does

    busblog: ok so lets get this
    straight
    busblog: your first year you lived in
    saugeen?

    paige six yes

    busblog: and at first you were nervous because you thought the bad rep of the residence
    hall would make you look… trashy?

    paige six
    no no.. more that.. it just had a bad rep. i had a long term boyfriend, i wanted
    to be in a suite-style rez, i didn’t want to be in "the zoo" (saugeen’s
    nickname) because it has this stupid rep for being a party and making you fail
    and having STDs
    paige six but really, its
    no different than anywhere else, and was actually the best year of my life. i
    should have lived there a second year, i totally regret not doing so

    busblog: nice
    busblog: ok so now to this girl– does everyone claim to know her?

    paige six no…like.. only a few people have said they do. even i have tried to find connections to her and it’s been pretty hard

    busblog: but for sure she was a stripper somewhere in London, and these boys wanted a stripper that night and walked down the hall and convinced her to come over?

    paige six well i dont know for sure if she is. i’ve heard that. as far as i know, they just thought to ask around until someone agreed to strip.

    busblog: !!!
    busblog: why is it that it never occured to me to just ask random girls to strip for me and my friends?

    paige six see.. now you know!
    paige six ha haha

    busblog: damn
    busblog: ok, so is it true that she dropped out of school because of all this?
    paige six nope.. i think she’s still in it

    busblog: GOOD
    busblog: ok, so what did the college paper have to say about this yesterday and the day before? anything?

    paige six they said nothing. but our paper stopped running about three days before it became really big. apparently they were going to say something, but it doesn’t surprize me that they didn’t, becuase it would have been too much of a liability on them. the admin would have freaked that it got promotion, cos like i said, admin has been on reputation repair for the past five years

    busblog: but the London paper reported on it today as did the Toronto Star
    busblog: but if you guys are on break i can see why they didnt

    paige six yeah, like the school paper stopped printing on the.. 8th? and classes ended then too. so basically the school shuts down during exams, except for student generated gossip

    busblog: ok now i understand that the students have an internal file sharing dealie
    busblog: is that true?
    busblog: is it like Napster and a message board all in one?

    paige six yeah, the residences have a server, which is student run
    paige six more like just… soulseek?

    busblog: im too old to know what that is
    busblog: kazaa?

    paige six ha ha yeah, napster kazaa styles
    paige six and the whole thing is, you can download anything off it in seconds. like a movie takes 3 minutes. so everyone uses it, it has everything on it, and students post pictures and videos to share too

    busblog: so wasnt there a porno filmed at uwo recently?
    busblog: or was that filmed in saugeen?

    paige six no. it was filmed two years ago. at a house off campus which was lived in by some students
    paige six but it had nothing to do with the school

    busblog: glad that was cleared up
    busblog: was it a real porn or one of those College Fuck Fest ones?

    paige six college invasion four?

    busblog: gonna have to pick that bad boy up

    paige six ha haha
    paige six basically, it was a keg party
    paige six and then the company came up from cali
    paige six brought porn stars
    paige six and set up in various houses… rooms, not houses

    paige six but so it was a kegger with sex scenes happening

    busblog: oh wait shit College Invasion?
    busblog: thats Shane, right?

    paige six umm?

    busblog: Shanes World

    paige six oh maube

    busblog: thats a good series if thats what it is
    busblog: porn stars with local college boys
    busblog: the boys always look waaaaay intimidated and freaked out

    paige six no, i think it was all professionals, just with uni kids in the background
    paige six here’s the article
    paige six yeah… Shane

    busblog: ahhhhhhhhhh
    busblog: ok, now what are the girls saying about this stripper girl
    busblog: because in my comments and around the web, im seeing girls rip on this stripper
    busblog: calling her all the names in the book
    busblog: is that what you and your friends are doing too?

    paige six no. i am certainly not.. and well.. people i know from western are saying that.. she’s insane, but not calling her slutty
    paige six people who don’t go to western, on the other hand.. are FREAKING OUT
    paige six like they don’t get it, they think she’s redic, they think she should be expelled, punished, everything

    busblog: i can sorta see how parents can be freaked out but… shes smiling like crazy in the pics
    busblog: shes just as happy as the boys

    paige six yeah. i havent really talked to any parents about it.. i told my mom, but she didn’t say much, other than to ask for clarification about what I meant when I said sex show

    busblog: she hadnt read the paper? its not the talk of the town?
    busblog: "oh YOUR daughter goes there…?"

    paige six it was only reported in the toronto star, and in the london paper..
    which we dont read
    paige six its not like, THAT big
    paige six i was out tonight with
    like.. 20-odd uni kids
    paige six and i think we all knew about it.. but everyone needed clarification
    paige six i think that its big for students, people who just graduated.. and like…. prospective parents
    paige six but i dont think the average western parent will know about it unless they are out gossiping with other parents

    busblog: http://www.technorati.com/
    busblog:
    more people are talking about your school, my sweet angel, than King Kong
    busblog: only the Apprentice finale and some idiot named David Brooks are getting more blog-ink than Western
    busblog: i got 8,000 hits on my blog yesterday of people looking for pics of the saugeen stripper
    busblog: and buzznet… shit, i wish i could tell you how many hits Buzznet got but i dont have that many fingers and toes

    paige six yeah i got 9,500 yesterday, referrals from torontoist
    paige six but i guess, what you have to remember, is that people on the internet are tuned in people, looking for information all the time
    paige six my mom, and your run of the mill parent, on the other hand, is not so atuned to such things

    busblog: but i would have thought that word would have spread
    busblog: especially about something that happened where her daughter attends

    paige six holyshit
    paige six i didnt even expect this technorati thing

    busblog: dude me neither

    paige six yeah..no.. i think while its a huge gossip thing, it is still an internet thing
    paige six how does "hey did you see those pictures of a naked girl?"
    come up in conversation unless youre talking to someone who is an established internet user?

    busblog: ahahahaha
    busblog: does Saugeen sell tshirts? or sweatshirts? or hoodies?
    busblog: i want one. i’ll pay

    paige six ooh the hoodies are secretly sold
    paige six or used to be..
    paige six they dont make them anymore…
    paige six they have lame school sanctioned ones that say "zoo.. celebrating diversity"
    paige six which is LAME
    paige six but the ZOO ones i have… used to be sold like totally backdoor in rez

    busblog: can i use that pic on my blog?
    paige six i can send you a cooler one

    paige six thats what all of saugen looks like in one room
    paige six just to show how big the rez is

    busblog: tell us a little more about the Saugeen Zoo for we americans who dont know
    busblog: particularily a few years back when you were rockin the rez

    paige six okay so there is this thing called the zoocrew
    paige six cos saugeen is called "the z00"
    paige six and for a while, zoocrew was this like, secret frat
    paige six boys ran it, upperyears who would come back and live in rez
    paige six and they did all these events at bars for the saugeen kids which were always INSANE (but then ended the year after i was in rez)
    paige six but one of the events was called zoobucks
    paige six where you would go and get a few "zoodollars" at the door, and then you could pay people zoobucks to do things
    paige six or get paid zoobucks to do things
    paige six and they would run contests on stage for zoobucks
    paige six and whoever had the most at the end of the night would win
    paige six and i won in first year
    paige six but mainly cos i knew a lot of the zoocrew

    busblog: and what did you spend your zoobucks on?

    paige six i got a digi camera from it
    paige six its all paper money you trade into zoocrew if you win
    paige six everyone gets $5 at the begining of the night
    paige six i had over $250,000 when i won
    paige six but as i said, i knew zoocrew boys, so that helped

    busblog: what were some ways that people earned their zoobucks?
    busblog: present company xcepted

    paige six well i didnt do any of the onstage contests
    paige six but they contests were like… wet tshit, loudest orgasm, banana blowjobs
    paige six whiped cream strip teases

    busblog: and they stopped doing this why?

    paige six cos… when the admin freaked about saugeens rep in 1999ish…
    paige six okay there are a few reasons
    paige six but mainly, admin freakes and makes a whole bunch of regulations which made it hard to have zoocrew and the zoo rep
    paige six so the frat of guys living in rez got less and less cool.. it wasnt fun to live in rez for more than a year anymore
    paige six also, ontario got rid of grade 11, i mean grade 13, sorry
    paige six so in my second year, people started university when they were 17 and 18
    paige six and no one wanted to be in rez as a 19-20year old wth underage kids
    paige six so basically, three years ago no one even condsidered going back to rez unless they were huge geeks
    paige six and so without upperyears there was no one to keep the zoocrew going
    paige six and it just crumbled
    paige six and then internally, the guys all started fighting and such
    paige six so it was doomed

    busblog: the rise and fall of a canadian legend

    paige six yes.
    paige six exxxxxxactly

    busblog: and you were in the middle of it
    busblog: thats so classic
