Boychicks ten: House Hunting

I was supposed to write an Unofficial Orientation Series post for today.

My excuse for it not being done is that I got lost in Josh Margolin ’11‘s baby blue eyes and Julian Silver ’12‘s soft caramel biceps.  To no one’s surprise, after turning their apartment into a high school, and continuously inviting back a trashcan-humping supervillain, the Boychicks are getting evicted:

The Summer Film Series presents: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

While a whopping 41 percent of you are “WORKING FOR $$$, SON.,” Emily Brown ’12 and the Wesleyan Summer Film Series rage on in week two, with Gentlemen Prefer Blondes:

It’s week two of the Summer Film Series! Come out to see Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell play lounge singers on a cruise ship. While Russell’s Dorothy Shaw is searching for true love, Monroe’s Lorelei Lee is after men with more…material attributes. Yes, this is the film that birthed “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend.” You don’t want to miss it.

Boychicks Eight: Supermans

Congratulations to the Boychicks for making as many movies as the Harry Potter franchise did, only Josh Margolin ’11 and Julian Silver ’12 have done it with seven fewer books off which to base their series!

Wesleying has been falling behind on our Boychicks game, we admit it.  But the chicks haven’t missed us too much, as they begin to gain more buzz around the interwebs. 

This week, they throw their hat into the superhero movie ring, and the results are… disturbing.  See for yourself:

Boychicks Seven: Back to School Part 2

Josh Margolin ’11 and Julian Silver ’12 just refuse to stop being funny, even though school’s out and we clearly don’t need them to help us procrastinate anymore.   This episode continues in high school, and much to my chagrin, once again has no Julian who is partying at R&C lost in the Santa Monica forests.

Spring Fling Interview: Ryan Hemsworth

The Halifax-born producer and DJ on cookies, N*Sync, and what the Internet doesn’t know about him yet

Ryan Hemsworth didn’t write to me through a publicist, he responded to my e-mails punctually, and his grammar is absolutely impeccable.  He’s one cool dude.  I’m not sure any other way to introduce our interview with him, because justice could never be done for this guy:

Spring Fling Interview: Anamanaguchi’s Luke Silas

In order to prepare the student body for Wesleyan’s annual concert in the hockey rink no on Foss Hill whoops back in the hockey rink, we set up an interview with Luke Silas, drummer for chip-tune indie-rock band Anamanaguchi.  Since forming in 2004, the band has been featured in Rock Band and have written and performed the music for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game.  They even played Zonker Harris Ze Who Must Not Be Named Day in 2010.  Luke writes in from Norway, where Anamanaguchi was performing before coming to Wes tomorrow.


Wesleying:  I have an NES and an old Gameboy in my room right now, so when I first heard your stuff, I freaked out a little bit when I recognized old sounds from something like a Ducktales NES game. What inspired you to produce this style of music?

Boychicks Episode Four

Josh Margolin ’11 and Julian Silver ’12 (alias: The Boychicks) are back with their fourth installment.  Julian’s got a new haircut and a new girlfriend, and I wish he’d date me instead couldn’t be happier for him!
