A Cappella Crime of the Day: “Call Me Maybe”

Is nothing sacred? Over at NESCAC neighbors Trinity, the Trinity College Quirks have put their own spin on “Call Me Maybe,” the Carly Rae Jepsen song-turned-meme that infiltrated your skull matter all summer long. This may well be the biggest pop culture breakthrough since 50 Shades of Grey popped up on a Brown Sociology syllabus.

Shout-out toInTheCac for the tip—and for spreading the news that Billy Madison co-star Bradley Whitford ’81 recently joined Wesleyan’s Board of Trustees.

Now Playing at the Tent Party Pregame: Adrien & William’s “Ain’t Tryna Say Good Night”

“POP MUUUUSIC!” – Henry Molofsky ’13

“Ain’t Tryna Say Good Night” is a weirdly appropriate title for a music video released this weekend, both personally, since yesterday/today I stayed up all night (to make friends for life!), and for the campus community at large–seniors whose Commencement into the world at large is just one last drug-addled night away; underclassmen working Reunion & Commencement this weekend to experience all the Parties on Fountain and none of the parties in Olin; alumni visiting to remember and reconstruct olden times. Don’t say good night, Wesleyan. Eat, drink, and be merry tonight. Have some fun! Too much fun! Go for a last WeScam or three! Dance with a ’57 alum (Martin Benjamin)! Fucking live. Just… don’t be tryna say good night.

Like it? Download it. Like it a lot? See who was involved after the jump.

Here’re some details from Waka Flocka Feinstein ’13 (AKA William) in his idiosyncratic writing style:
