The Ascension of James: A Slender James Concert

10171835_10154050368690167_101790724137634044_n

From the illustrious Nate “Neepaz” Repasz ’14:

Slender James was formed in a simulation of 2011 under the auspices of a cosmic DOYCE. Since then, it has developed several norms and regenerative properties.

Yet, as all self-sustaining entities must, the James now prepares to forfeit its progenitors to ensure the future of its progeny. And so, as the eve of the Ascension approaches, we supplicate you to watch a swan song, as we step aside for our supplanters.

In other words, come listen to us sing songs as we send our six seniors into the sunset.

James Ascended. James eternal. James bless.
