“It’s rare that you don’t remind me of a dumpster. And I know dumpsters.”
Ladies and Gentleman, the second to last episode of the Postponed web series is out. And this episode has it all. Featuring Chris Correa ’10, and Robby Hardesty ’12 as well as a handful of other Wespeople, Postponed continues with all the trials and tribulations that comes with living in a van with your homeless best friend.
We follow our protagonists Chris and Robby as they battle their evil foe, Damien the Admissions Officer, who in Episode Five, blackmails the duo into paying him money they don’t have. This puts a stress on the boys’ relationship, and what follows is a beautiful combination of Humans vs. Zombies, Shakespeare, man hugs, and ultimately, a confession. (But first we get to see how to pull off a “butt pirate” costume.)
The best part of Episode Six? Its cliffhanger ending. Obviously, something big is going to happen in Episode Seven. If you want to prepare yourself for the epic season finale, catch up on the other episodes here, here,here, and here.
In related news, the Postponed team is seeking extras for its final episode, which is being filmed on Saturday, and they’re willing to offer pay(!!!). Details past the jump.
(If this really puts you in the mood for ridiculous mash-ups, I recommend this convergence of two of 2010’s most celebrated albums—Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty and the Black Keys’ Brothers—appropriately titled The Brothers of Chico Dusty, by “Wick-it the Instigator.” It works astoundingly well, and won’t give you a migraine in the process.)
Few things in life have more awkwardness potential than two sets of parents moving their respective newly arrived frosh children into their shared dorm room. The Argus already provided an excellent Move-In Montage “so you can permanently commemorate the awkwardness of your very first day” (I would link, but I can’t find it on their site). From CollegeHumor.com comes a clever and eerily accurate run-down of The 7 Types of Parents You See on Move In Day, running the gamut from The Parents Who Went To This School (“Yeah, we used to call it the vomitorium. Haha!”) to The Overly Friendly Parents (“We love everyone! What a lovely duvet you have! Have you met our child yet?”).
Which did they forget? Perhaps the Disgruntled Parents Making Snarky Comments Under Their Breath About Their Kid’s Roommate While Ze’s in the Room? The Button-Down Conservative Parents Who Had No Idea What They Were In For When They Mailed the Wesleyan Deposit? Share your faves.
