Film Series: Stop Making Sense

1984. USA. Dir: Jonathan Demme. Documentary. 88 min. 35mm print.


True, the world’s foremost (post)-punk/art/funk/dance/world/new-wave band may have broken up over twenty years ago, but just for one night it doesn’t have to be true. Arresting visuals and an awe-inspiring set list bring you closer than humanly possible to David Byrne and the band in their prime during this concert movie filmed on Talking Heads’ 1983 tour.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / $5

Composting Internship Available!

sproutFrom Dara Mysliwiec ’16:

Are you concerned with food waste on campus? Are you passionate about decomposition? Are you tired of the three-question format for interest posts?

Well worry no further, because as a COMPOSTING INTERN, you can be in charge of these things! There is a newly available position for a Residential Composting Intern. The job involves organizing individual student composting, decreasing food waste on campus, and helping organize composting awareness events. It involves ~5 (paid) hours of work per week (and is available to both work-study and non-work study students).

The position is for this semester, and starts as soon as possible! The only requirements are that you must be over 20 years old and carry a valid driver’s license, and you must have a passion for composting :)

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, or if you have any questions, email wesleyancompost[at]gmail[dot]com.

There’s no deadline, but apply sooner rather than later.
