WeSNL Wants You to Join the Cast


Live from Middletown, CT, it’s a message from WeSNL:

Calling all actors, writers, and videomakers!

WeSNL is a brand new video sketch comedy group seeking to bring Wesleyan’s wit and humor to the interwebs! We produce weekly sketches, both on Wesleyan related issues and about funny things at large, and will also have a monthly “Weekend Update” section where we recap the past month’s most ridiculous news stories.

All things prose. Anything you want to discuss? Translation, problems with papers, letters you can’t bring yourself to write, expressions that puzzle you, books that you can’t finish (as a reader or a writer), anything to do with the word, the sentence or the paragraph.

Please come and discuss.

(Over a cup of coffee or glass of wine)

I hope you come,
Amy Bloom

Date: Febuary 6th and every Thursday following
Time: 5pm-6pm

Ian Teixeira Presents: “Birthday Party”

If it’s your very merry unbirthday, or you feel like wearing a pointed hat for no reason, Ian Teixeira ’17 has just the event for you:

A birthday party is a joyous occasion. A party celebrating two
birthdays, twice as so. Now imagine the sheer ecstasy of a room in
which it is everyone’s birthday; no one is left out because each one
of us is the birthday boy or girl or genderqueer person! 

The event will feature birthday-themed decorations, hats, streamers,
and music. There will not be a birthday cake, because cake is for
nerds,” Teixeira added.

“The most fun that’s been had on campus since the 1800’s”
-President Michael Roth
