Oedipus Rex: the original motherfucker

Come see some of Wesleyan’s finest actors in one of Wesleyan’s finest faculty director’s (Yuriy Kordonskiy) production of one of Sophocles’ finest plays (Oedipus Rex). Watch actors navigate an abandoned construction site, complete with jagged stone columns, incomplete metal grating, muddied puddles, while magnifying and contorting their own performance with the use of platform shoes and masks that will make your skin crawl.

Don’t shoot the messenger.

The 2nd Senior Cocktail event scheduled in December is no longer happening. In an e-mail from the Senior Class Officers:

On the night of cocktails various students verbally abused bus drivers, who were simply trying to ensure the safety of our class. In addition, a driver, who was also the head of the company, was physically assaulted by a student. Many drinking containers and illegal drugs were left on the bus, which contributed to the injury of another driver. In addition, considerable cleaning was needed to make sure these buses were ready to transport school children the next morning. Due to the class’s behavior that night, the bus company has decided not to work with the senior class anymore. This was one of the few bus companies in the state that would work with us, and since there is a labor shortage in the bus industry right now finding a replacement will be very difficult.

No matter how inebriated anyone was that night, this behavior is inexcusable, and has made hosting the next event impossible and impractical. As a result, we have cancelled the December event. We hope that you will reflect on your individual actions and the lack of responsibility of the class as a whole.

(Marianna adds: “We are currently seeking other transportation and venues who will work with us as well as ways to make these events celebratory of our senior year while eliminating some of the problems that occurred last week. As we determine the costs of such events, we will reevaluate the overall cost of the senior pass, taking into account the fact that there will be no December event. If, at that time, individuals do not feel that they wish to purchase a pass for the new series of events, they will be able to “opt out” and only be charged for the first event.”)

Run, do not walk.

If you weren’t able to see the inauguration ceremony for Michael Roth, head over to Warren Circle to catch the reception. Wesleyan’s steel drum band is performing right now- and they’re amazing. Also, the Douglas Cannon is on display!

It’s so… small *coughthat’swhatshesaid*

Yeah. Go!

Bringing the Sexley to Exley

Onomatopoeia (all girls all the time a cappella) will be singing in the Science Center tonight at 10:15 pm. Take a study break from your pre-fall break workload for this short and sweet concert!

An expensive looking watch was left in the Pine St laundry room. If you can describe this watch, e-mail abolin@wes to arrange a pickup time.

On a lighter note…

I walked into the living room on Sunday to find two of my housemates squeeing in delight over the latest best-thing-on-the-internet.


That’s right- Postsecret and Lolcats have finally done the deed and created a love child. Stop by Lolsecrets for your weekly fill of emo kitten confessions!

All the cool kids are doing it…

Waiting In Line, Wesleyan’s humor a cappella group, is holding auditions at Alpha Delt on Thursday from 4:30-6:30 and Friday from 5:00-7:00. Make us laugh, make us cry (…with laughter, preferably), make us ‘gasm with your singing ability. We’re into that sort of thing.

All class years, genders, races, sexual preferences, and stupid human tricks are welcome!
