MIX Potluck @ 200 Church

Rebecca Wyzan ’15 offers free food and free puns:

Do you take your papusas with kimchi? Ever wonder why gumbo isn’t always made with Polish sausage? Don’t know why you should ever have to choose naan over injera? Is your idea of a well rounded meal enchiladas and sashimi? WE GOT YOU!

Come to the MIX Mixer (pun always intended) Potluck, bring delightfully and experimentally mixed cuisine (or not, you can just bring hummus), and mingle with some damn fine multiracial, multiethnic, and multicultural folks.

If you are interested in becoming more involved with MIX this semester or just want to know what we’re all about, drop by and show us some love!

Date: Today, March 1
Time: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

DJ Crook$hanks Gives Mix Addicts their Fix with New August Mix

You’ve been waiting. I’ve been waiting. We’ve all been waiting. But thankfully, our trembling arms that pine so hard that intravenous needle full of our drug of choice (DJ mixes) can rest easily as we get our fix and feel this overwhelming euphoria flowing through our veins while casually avoiding an overdose.

DJ Crook$hanks’ August Mix has dropped. And it features album artwork that a reverse Google image search has led me to believe depicts a young Terry Melcher and his mother Doris Day.

All loving joking aside, this month’s mix from the prolific Wesleyan DJ and in-every-band musician, Adrien DeFontaine ’13, arrived a few days ago and is filled with many things I haven’t heard of but also names I recognize like Ginuwine and Boys Noise. It’s already received comments like, “dope,” “Solid!!!,” and “great work by Crook$hanks this August Mix is so good.” Blast this one at your next party, freshmen.

Stream below, and check out each one of Crook$hanks’ past mixes from the year herehereherehereherehere, and here. Tracklisting after the jump.

Loving Day & MIX present: Loving Day Celebration!

The Mix Project

From Leah Koenig ’13:

Wesleyan’s mixed heritage group, MIX, is creating a project to raise awareness about the mixed heritage community on campus, and to provide an opportunity for mixed-heritage members of the community to self-identify without the limitations of check-boxes.

Inspired by Kip Fulbeck’s “The Hapa Project” (for more info, go here), The MIX Project invites any and all mixed heritage students, faculty, and staff at Wesleyan to participate.

*mixed heritage: def. – multiracial, multiethnic (ex: African American and Jamaican; Chinese and Japanese, etc.), and/or transracially adopted*
