“Dude, dumpster diving is very serious business in some cultures in some places.”
Aaand we’re back. As promised, lovable bums Chris Correa ’10 and Robby Hardesty ’12 write in with the latest episode of their web series baby, Postponed, this one with a little less sex and drugs and a little more garbage. Beneath all the financial frustration and unemployment despair, there’s also a musical number (whoah!) and a reasonably accurate depiction of a WestCo Open Mic. Look out for a few brief WesKid cameos, including the lovably
fraternal sororal Rosy and Roxy ’14.
Failing gainful employment yet again (apparently comparing yourself to Charlie from Charlie’s Angels and a “lighter-skinned Morgan Freeman” doesn’t win you points in job interviews), our heroes turn to dumpster diving to make ends meet (which isn’t really so farfetched among Wesleyan alumni). Eventually they end up entertaining WestCo—sorry, Middletown College crowd in the hopes of winning $100 worth of food money. Who’s excited to graduate?
As always, Postponed consists of Chris Correa ’10, Brian Velsor ’11, and Ian Park ’11 directing; Gabe Elder ’11, Velsor, and Park editing; Correa and Velsor writing; and Robby Hardesty ’12 and Correa acting.
