Stardust Pinbar

Ziggy Stardust artwork and posters decorate one wall while another is covered by an array of playfields from vintage pinball games that are illuminated by a constantly changing stream of rainbow-colored lights.

  • Artwork immortalizing David Bowie inside Stardust Pinbar.

There are more than dozen machines set up for play inside the lounge, including titles like Cirqus Voltaire, Arabian Nights, Monster Bash, The Beatles, Addams Family, Junkyard, Centaur, and The Simpsons.

Games will cost anywhere from $.50 to $1 to play. Bracamonte says they're also going to have custom-made Stardust Pinbar tokens available to use (although the machines will also accept regular quarters).

A large bar at one end of the lounge features more than 8,500 pinballs encased in the glass bar top. And the seats of each of the bar stools are covered with the sort of glittery silver vinyl that would make Ziggy Stardust proud.

  • The bar at Stardust Pinbar, which contains more than 8,500 pinballs. EXPAND

Mindfulness Center at ASU

Expert advice & actionable tools to lead a more mindful life starting today at no cost and minimal time spent, resulting in major physical and mental benefits to include: reduced anxiety, increased time management and compassion for yourself and others. The ultimate form of achievable self-care.

The idea of self-care has gotten overwhelming not everyone can spend hundreds of dollars or dedicate hours of time to unwinding or recharging. With mindfulness you are taking care of yourself but at no extra cost or time spent, it's accessible to everyone.

What mindfulness is & ways to start with mindfulness daily without changing your lifestyle but still seeing results:

    • Start your day with an intention of how you want the day to go.
    • Mindfulness listening- when speaking with someone really just listen, stop, pause take a moment.
    • End your day with one point of gratitude.

Benefits:

  • One of the benefits is it helps us live a deeper, more genuine life- Mindfulness helps us take that pause and take us off auto pilot. Life is made up of moments, so you have an opportunity to be present for those moments without judgement by being present in those moments you can start to shape how you want to act instead of just doing things over and over you have that choice to create a different or a deeper experience.
  • Mindfulness has been proved to help support mental health by reducing anxiety, depression, increasing self-efficacy, time management skills and also increasing compassion toward yourself and others.

Center offers workshops, certifications and holds various events around campus to help students and the community develop mindfulness practices.

Book Club " I'm Not Dying with You Tonight"

As a part of their national tour, Kimberly Jones and Gilly Segal will be doing an "in conversation" event and book signing at 7:00 PM at Changing Hands in Tempe, AZ on Friday, August 9, 2019.

Inspired by the 2015 Baltimore riots, and poised to be the breakout debut of the fall, I'm Not Dying with You Tonight will spark important conversations about perspective, bias and division as well as conversations about the power of empathy and friendship.

YA novel I'm Not Dying with You Tonight follows two teens one black (written by Kimberly) and one white who are forced to rely on each other when a race riot erupts in their city. It has been called "a vital addition to the YA race relations canon" (Nic Stone), and "compelling and powerful" (Angie Thomas).
