Shelby Scott ’11
By Dallas Ducar ’10
Name and year?
Shelbus Dumbledore III, 2011.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to make documentaries for the History Channel and be cool.
What would those documentaries entail?
I like to think of it as “Bill Nye the Science Guy” meets history, meets “DaVinci Code,” meets adults and stuff.
What’s your favorite food?
Sushi; raw fish is my calling.
Because it calls from the sea.
Anyone in particular that calls to you?
Neptune or Ariel.
Are you getting ready or excited for Prom?
I’m excited, I get to go this year – I think. I hope I get a date but I don’t know, not many people love me.
What do girls look for in a Prom date?
Good hair, they want some fancy moves and someone who they can take home to mama and she can offer them lemonade.
Do girls at Xavier think this whole Prom thing is a big deal?
Yeah, some girls got their prom dresses before the Christmas dance; some think they can get dates.
Do you like Web sites?
They’re okay I guess.
“Hurt Locker” won overall film of the year, which movie would you want to win?
I really wanted “An Education” to win, that or “Precious.” Anything but “Avatar,” it is a disgrace to the art form of filmmaking. It is all CGI and hardly a movie, the true art form is being challenged to make the movie, not just use a computer.
This one time I watched a pigeon eat a whole cookie, like the whole thing. It just went to town on that thing. Do you think that’s cool?
Yeah, it’s the cat’s pajamas, I guess.
College. Exciting? Scary? Or both?
Exciting, I can’t wait to leave Arizona. It’s too hot here.
Do you not like us?
No! It’s just the clothes here. You can’t wear winter clothing, which are like the best clothes ever—and in Chicago you can.
What’s your favorite article of winter clothing?
I really like my peacoat and my wool longjohns from the 60s that were my grandmas.
Quick! What’s the word you’re thinking about right now?
Who would win in a fight? A gentleman minotaur or a pirate cyclops?
