From Gabriel Doss ’17:
Would you be interested in acting in a short film? Auditions are on Sunday, September 28th, running from 3pm to 6pm in the Multipurpose Room in Usdan’s basement. Sign up with the google doc link below. The Wesleyan Film Project has entered pre-production on one of its first projects, a screenplay titled “Leaves,” written by Will McGhee.
We are looking for two female characters and one male character. There is no preparation necessary, as you will be reading cold. Anyone and everyone is welcome, regardless of prior experience. You have the option of auditioning with a friend, that is, signing up multiple people for one audition slot. If you have any questions, hit me up at gdoss(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.
Here’s the link for signing up to audition!

Sometimes Bon Iver tenderly whispers, ‘Can I be the little spoon now?’
Sure, there’s procrasturbation in the Olin stacks come reading and finals week, but if that isn’t quite doing it for you anymore, check out boniverotica, or Bon Iver Erotic Stories. This Tumblr serves up bite-size anecdotes of romantic encounters with the band’s reclusive Grammy award-winning folk singer Justin Vernon, each one accompanied by visual stimuli—making it the perfect procrastination destination that isn’t too crass.
Some entries are outrageously twee, some are kind of funny, some are ridiculously silly, and a few actually really sound like fun!
As far as I can tell, boniverotica hasn’t yet scored a semi-anonymous interview with Huff Post, but it has been featured on TIME’s website. According to the article, for today’s quality PD we can thank a trio of twentysomething professionals from Colorado, who all find Bon Iver “inexplicably sexy” and “just wanted to ravish him.” In about three days, their Tumblr had received about 100, 000 visitors.
Vernon does not appear to have commented on his newfound sex appeal, but his girlfriend, the singer-songwiter Kathleen Edwards, reportedly said: “A girl can dream.” The TIME reporter also claims that Ryan Gosling’s days as the “hipster hearthrob meme” of choice are numbered, but I’m inclined to believe the competition isn’t quite over yet.
