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:
In order to prepare the student body for Wesleyan’s annual concert in the hockey rinkno 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 HarrisZe 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?
Josh Margolin ’11and 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!
And they tried to tell you that Wesleyan didn’t have any adapted-Chinese-operas-slash-wet-t-shirt-contests. Sara Guernsey ’15 proves otherwise:
Come see a beautiful adaptation of the opera by Tang Xianzu 1598, performed in a hybrid of traditional Chinese and Western styles. There’s a pond in the stage, a tree branch hanging from the sky, clouds to sit on, and tea served at the beginning of the show.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY: 8 pm
SATURDAY: 2pm, 8 pm.
The astoundingly attractive and titillatingly talented Josh Margolin ’11 and Julian Silver ’12are back, with plenty of Wesleyan and ‘Cac references for all of us.
If you’re not caught up, peep Episodes One and Two.
The boys (chicks?) promise a new episode every Monday, so if you’re looking for a nice way to spend those awkward four minutes between when dinner ends and The Voice starts, you’ve found it. Subscribe to their page on YouTube here.
Wesleyan Diversity Education Facilitators (WesDEFs) are excited to launch a weekly series of workshops on facilitation skills! Come to our info-session this week. Oreos (and maybe other snacks …) will be provided.
Use facilitation skills in your student groups, classroom discussions, or interpersonal interactions! Potential topics that will be covered are: establishing community guidelines, active listening and questioning, workshop design, and social justice dialogues. We are also seeking suggestions from other students.
