Your new JCR Committee, the BY-Elections and much more :-D

Hello everyone following on from my last blog about JCR awards, I’ll be starting by initially sticking to the similar theme by officially putting out the list of your very own new JCRs who take up their roles in the beginning of next year and some information on when the by-elections are, how you can get involved and apply for the vacant JCR positions.


This election round saw a total of a 101 nominations for the 77 positions available and out of all of those we only had 19 unfilled positions for which we shall be having by-elections on Monday the 17th November 2014. The by-elections will be held in the boardroom (situated in the union building 42 on level 2, if you’re unsure just ask at the reception where it is) at 6pm on the day and if anyone’s interested in applying for the Vacant positions below all you have to do it come up with a 2 minute long pitch to present in front of the JCR Committee members on the day, if you can’t make it on the day then you have the opportunity of sending in a 200 word manifesto (email it to and of why you’d like to be in position that will be read on your behalf on the day.


I’d like to also like to congratulate everyone who has been successful in getting their post. I know you all can’t wait to get started, you’re all in for a heck of a journey 🙂

Moving on to the events side of things hopefully everyone’s hyped up for the Christmas Ball on the 6th of December which should be absolutely epic promising a whole host of treats.


Early bird tickets for which are priced at just £6 so I’d get them while they last over here:



I’ll also over here mention a cheeky Your Skills session plug 🙂

I shall be delivering one this Wednesday so if anyone’s interested in applying a range of interpersonal communication skills with confidence and much more then head over here to find out more about the it.





Finally it’s time for the regular Blog-ly Trivia question.


The correct answer is but of-course the Tail hair of a Thestral 🙂 The winner of last blogs’ free meal in the bridge is Sarah Howard.

Big shout outs to Aaron Scott and Bruno Russel as well for getting the right answer 🙂




To make the next one more interesting it’s not just the first one to comment but I’ll actually be choosing one person completely randomly from everyone who comments on the Blog with an answer. The prize is fairly similar but I’m raising the stakes to include a free meal in the BAR 3 Diner this time round 😉



So this blog the question is:


What is the significance of A113?   Detailed answers will be given extra preference when the winner is chosen randomly :-p



And last of all if anyone has any questions for me regarding anything, literally anything do not for one moment hesitate to get in touch by emailing me at 🙂

    A113 is an easter egg inserted into films by graduates of the Animation course at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in reference to the room where they had their teaching sessions. It’s found in lots of films but most famously in every Pixar film from the numberplate on Andy’s Mum’s car in Toy Story to the Camera in Finding Nemo.

    Well done to all the JCR candidates elected as well! 🙂

    Animators from the California Art School put A113 in little details in films and cartoons that they animate. I think it’s the room where they have some lectures. 🙂

    A113 is the name of the road going from Leytonstone to Chipping Ongar, and who doesn’t want to go to Chipping Ongar?

    A113 is hidden in many of Pixar’s movies. Standard examples of this include: number plates (Cars), wing numbers on planes (Cars) and room numbers.

    More elaborate examples include: In Wall-E, the executive order given by the earth’s leader not to return was called order A113. A graph on one of Pixar’s animated computer screens was labelled “A1” and the column marked “13” had the highest bar.

    The significance of this is that pixar’s founding animators studied in room A113 when they were at university in California, so it’s left in their movies as a throw back to that.

    The other significance is far more sinister… “A” is the FIRST letter of the alphabet, which means it can be equated to the number “1”, if we add this up with the other three numbers, we get: 1 + 1 + 1 + 3 = 6. Six, interesting… As “A113” has three numbers, we must write out this result three times: 666. The Devil’s Number. OMG Illuminati Satanists confirmed.
