Mabuhay Auditions

Mabuhay features just as much flannel as any other part of Wes culture. Thank goodness.

Are you a veteran of the online video application scene? No? Well, why don’t you do something about that, then?! Sheesh! Look, Yuki Ohmori ’13 can help you get started with this, so stop wasting time and get on it:

Looking for an opportunity to showcase your talent on Asian/Asian American culture?  Sign up to audition for Mabuhay, the annual Asian/Asian American show during WesFest!First, please sign up on this google spreadsheet with your name, e-mail address and performance name.Then submit a video and a short description of your intended performance to yfong@wes by February 2.  The purpose of the video will be to illustrate your ideas to the Mabuhay Committee, whether it is a video of your previous performance or even a Youtube video.  Please include in the description 1) the estimated number of participants, 2) the estimated length of the performance, and 3) how it relates to Asian/Asian American culture (please keep it short, 2-3 sentences). This is a great opportunity to showcase your talent on Asian/Asian American culture, and every Wes student is welcomed to sign up and audition!

We look forward to the wonderful submissions :)

Best,
The Mabuhay Committee

Sell Your Books, Make it Rain

Walter Rodriguez '13

Given the photo of that dapper young gentleman featured above, you might have thought this post would detail Walter Rodriguez ’13 and his many accomplishments on the soccer fieldInstead that photo is there merely so you can pick him out of the Olin crowd tonight when you go to sell him your schoolbooks. Though he gives everything of himself on the soccer field, this post is instead about how much money he’s about to give you in Olin tonight. But I’ll let Walter speak for himself on this one:

Hey everybody, I’m buying books this semester for Belltower Books, and I’m in Olin for the rest of the night in the back on the left by the big tables in the corner. I’ll give you straight cash for your books, so you can go HAM tomorrow or Saturday night when you’re done with your exams. “Help ME help YOU make it rain.”   – Ghandi

Date: Tonight
Time: Now until Olin’s closing

Gag Reflex Reading Week Show

Gag Reflex is helping you think positive this reading week:

Join us in Exley for some completely improv-ed comedy, just like your completely improv-ed studying.

The location is ideal: you’ll find us as you walk groggily from Sci-Li to Pi Cafe to grab yourself another chai charger.

But if you can’t make it to the show, here are some survival tips for this coming week and beyond:

-Whatever you’re doing, imagine Michelle Obama is looking at you with encouragement and approval.
-Keep a plastic bag from Broad Street Books in your room at all times. They are non-porous, which makes them ideal for catching vomit and urine.
-Everyone is going to be at their wit’s end, so it’s the perfect time to hit on someone who is much better looking that you.
-Make friends in high places. Like the empire state building. Or westco.

Date: Monday, December 10
Time: 5:00 pm
Place: Exley Lobbey (right outside Pi)
Cost: Free
