Did you know Wesleyan had an equestrian team? I didn’t. But now I do and you do too!   Ellen Alexander invites you to come and ride:

Wesleyan’s Equestrian team is a club team that rides at Windcrest Farm in Hebron, CT. We are hitting the ground running this semester, so if you’d like to join please come to our mandatory information meeting! Showing is optional; the only commitment is a semester of lessons.

A Post About a Conversation About Posting a Post About Abusing Listserves

You may have seen this post about some email shenanigans that took place recently at some obscure, little-known educational institution down the coast from us. You may have read an article or two on the incident. But did you know that it sparked a vigorous debate amongst the Wesleying staff?

The conversation is below. Please keep in mind that reading this is a complete and total waste of time, unless you have really poignant opinions on duck-sized horses or horse-sized ducks.

Zach: This is pretty much really hilarious and if any of you want to do a short post on it you should. That is all.

BZOD: Whoever takes this should include a link to the original article too (link); maybe mention that the dude spells “queue” wrong in the email apology (que is, in fact, the Spanish word for “that”); and probably get a comment from real live NYU students. They made a party out of it too: link. Also this quote: “Would you rather fight 100 duck sized horses, or 1 horse sized duck?”

NITIC’S CROTEBOOK: You Can Lead a Horse to Awesomefest

But you can’t make him liveblog the damn thing in a timely fashion.

After like six days or whatever and no announcement of victory, I think it’s reasonably safe to conclude that there is no winner of Awesomefest Part Deux except for you, dear reader and participant, who weathered scars and scabs, technical difficulties and nonexistent rehearsals, horse masks and tinnitus, to bring us thirty-two (32) wholly singular, unique, occasionally dreadful, fleeting bursts of frenzied inspiration in the form of synth-pop duos and post-dubstep avant-poetry outfits, progalicious ensembles and environment-core ukulele-strummers, Civil War folk singers and cacophonous rockabilly freaks, funkadelic crowd-pleasers and something called “Slutbuckets.”

Never mind. Awesomefest Part Deux ruled, almost as much as Awesomefest Part One. Special thanks to all 262,026 bands who came out and participated!!!!!!11
