Film Series: The Matrix

1999. USA. Dir: The Wachowski Siblings. With Keanu Reeves. 136 min.

Sure, we’ve all felt at one time or another that our entire world is a horrifying lie concocted by evil robots – but isn’t it nice when someone actually does something about it? Keanu learns Kung-Fu and becomes our technological messiah in this influential, seamless blend of Hong Kong martial arts and philosophical cyberpunk. “Whoa,” indeed.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.

Joint Chiefs of Math Concert at Buho

From Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15:

It’s the last concert of the year for Buddhist House! Are you wondering what math has to do with rock? Do you enjoy rhythms that throw off your internal sense of balance? Are you at least curious what I’m talking about?

Joint Chiefs of Math is a guitar and drum math-rock duo based in Philly. Think Hella meets This Town Needs Guns meets Breadwinner meets Don Caballero. Or just checkitout:

We’ve also got the student group Anaphylactic Shock opening for them, featuring Henry Robertson ’13 on guitar and vox, Frank Fineis ’13 on bass, Jacob Masters ’15 on keys, and Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15 on drums.

Date: Tonight, November 30th

“The Other City” Screening in Honor of World AIDS Day

From Tali Robbins ’15:

Join us this December 1 for a screening of “The Other City” in honor of World AIDS Day.

Not far from the White House, the Capitol, and the National Mall lies a part of Washington, DC that the tourists never see and the mainstream media virtually ignores. At least three percent of DC is HIV positive, a staggering rate higher than parts of Africa. Behind all the stories of heartbreak, loss, and struggle there are also the incredible, encouraging stories of the people behind grassroots movements to extend education, combat stigmas, and spread hope.

Come, watch, eat free Typhoon dinner, and remember to wear red!

Date: Saturday, December 1
Time: 6-8 p.m.
Place: Shanklin 107
Cost: FREE (and you get Typhoon dinner)

Chi Psi Tiki Dance Party in WestCo Cafe

From Alex “Vitruvian Man” Sakhno ’15:

The newly revived Alpha Alpha chapter of Chi Psi at Wesleyan would like to hold a party for the general campus as a way to bring more excitement to Friday nights at Wesleyan. It will be a simple dance-oriented party with a Hawaiian-themed feel. There will be some popular music that everyone can move around and dance and socialize to. It will be a way for our newly established fraternity to gain some attention on campus while meeting new people and having a good time, as well as giving back to the campus community. Come get out of the cold weather and take a trip with Chi Psi to the tropical islands of Hawaii, as we host our first rave of the semester. Wear something beachy. It’s a tiki party, and we’re all getting lei’d!
