Dylan and Derek Watch Wes Pacific

Last week I posted about Wes Pacific, a new web series by Will Feinstein ’13, and the explosion of Wesleyan-based web series over the past two years. Naturally, the cycle is far from complete.

Derek Frank ’15 and Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15 write in about a new video project yearning to get off the ground: Dylan and Derek Watch Wes Pacific, which mostly consists of Derek and Dylan watching Wes Pacific while eating Tostitos tortilla chips in what appears to be a Butts single. You’ve been warned.

Worth noting: YouTube videos of people watching YouTube videos have a long and storied, if admittedly baffling, history at this point, dating back as least to when the Roots sat down in front of 2 Girls 1 Cup. More recently, I came across the ‘tube channel of one Martin Kohout, a somber-faced German artist who has uploaded no less than 817 videos of himself watching other prominent YouTube videos. Below you’ll see Kohout’s reaction to Tyler the Creator’s “Yonkers” video.

    I frankly don’t like this video at all. I think it’s stupid and both the young men involved should spend there time in a better manner.

    Wow zach nice post! Your Writing has improve a ton ever since you took that summer workshop! REmember the key rules: “i before e except after c,” and always capitalize the first letter in a sentence.

    I thought the video was nice, but instead of a comedy I thought it was a drama. Is that okay?

      Caitlin, I was thinking the same thing. I only laughed when I saw the credits twice (just a gag probably) but the beginning part was very serious because you don’t know what’s going to happen next. The suspense went away when the boys decided to stop watching the TV show. It’s a great plot with fun characters and a twist. Keep it up boys!!

    this is not a message about derek/dylan’s webseries but instead about zach’s blog report.

    zach, I thought your blog write-up was well done with a lot of good word choice and sentences. I do think next time you should use strong opening sentences for your paragraphs and use less big pictures. 

    sciencery,
