CONAN O’BRIEN / A MILLION DOLLAS / YOU FEEL ME? / HOLLA

Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, has just been sentenced to four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter. Das Racist will (still) never get to collaborate with the (real) late King of Pop. Conan O’Brien pronounces “Das Racist” funny.

Despite all this (or because of it), everyone’s favorite Bard Art College/”Students of Color for Social Justice”-based duo makes its television debut worth the wait, hustling a real live Jackson impersonator onstage to moonwalk to the tune of Relax‘s familiar single, “Michael Jackson.” Also, there’s a freakin’ podium, a cymbal ensemble, and Victor Vazquez ’08 slamming his head across his keyboard (2:42).  Skip to around 3:00 for the MJ showcase.

You Oughta Know By Now…

…that Wesleying must invariably comment on a Das Racist release; to fail to follow the suit of the NYT, the Wall Street Journal, and P4k, among others, would be sheer negligence on our part. They’ve even gotten another one of those sweet feats from GQ (have you ever really looked at soup dumplings…I mean really looked?!). The fact of the matter is that unless you live under a rock—and that rock happens to be located somewhere far, far away from Middletown or any area with a significant population of “indie” folkz—you’re probably well aware of Relax, the latest project of rap wonder duo Heems (Himanshu Suri ’07) and Kool AD (Victor Vazquez ’06) and hypeman Dapwell (Ashok Kondabolu). If you’re not, check this vid immediately.

Master Meditators Club Meeting

From Maggie Cohen ’12:

Do you want to be the master of your domain? Do you want improved work productivity, energy, sleep, relationships, and creativity? Do you want to have group sex in a lowly lit room in the seclusion of a chapel’s basement?
The Master Meditators Club will be endeavoring to accomplish the majority of the above.
Please join Max Bevilacqua ‘12 and Maggie Cohen ‘12 for group meditation.

All styles and levels of experience are welcome as we seek to create a supportive and growing group of meditators on campus.

Time: 5 pm
Date: Fridays
Place: Memorial Chapel Meditation Room (in the basement)
