Wes Pacific, Episode Two: “Why The Huge Pause?”

“It sure as hell wasn’t, like, tabouleh. Cuz you don’t need the stove to cook tabouleh.”

And we’re back.

Back from the four-day weekend colloquially known as “Fall Break,” and back with a new episode of Wes Pacific, the critically acclaimed, Emmy-nominated webseries brainchild of Will Feinstein ’13. This time around, Will gets a flu shot (check it out, Will’s mom), Sexty-Five Pearl gets a closeup (still going strong), literally all of High Rise gets a rude 2:40 AM awakening, and Bobby Burvant ’13 and Adam “Rot-Bot” Rotstein ’13 get “Clairecuts.” Rot-Bot also tells a joke about a bear, and Hector knows “Monster” really well. All in a day’s work! (Dylan and Derek, take note.)

Watch the episode above or on YouTube, like Wes Pacific on Facebook, and check the first episode here. Next episode (probably) coming (maybe) soon (I think?).

PS: great news. It feels like Monday, but it’s actually Wednesday!

AEPi Fashion Blog Makes Long-Awaited Appearance

Alex Pack '14, one of the house's many fashionistas.

Following the stirring announcement of the Roosevelt Institute’s new blog comes another blog promising to tackle the challenging issues of our day: specifically, the fashion choices of the brothers of AEPi.

Accompanying the attached photo reads an astute measurement of Pack’s impeccable flair:

Alex was rocking out jewburban-casual style tonight:

defined by the standard cargo shorts and white adidas combo. The faded red on the grey t-shirt adds to the effect of this timeless ensemble, in a way that not only says “I’m committed to my old shirts,” but also says “……”

While I applaud this journalist’s groundbreaking work, I can’t help but notice the similarities in hir “Stay Sexy” sign-off and the “Stay Sexty ; )” of Sexty Five Pearl. Do I sense some possible intra-Wesleyan tumblr rivalry here?

Stay tuned for additional excitement here.

Sexty Five Pearl Residents Blog, Are Sexty

Earlier this week we put out a call for study abroad blogs, from all programs and locales, of all shapes and sizes. What we actually received was a lil bit different: a captivating glimpse into the daily world of “five Wesleyan student doing a domestic program over on Pearl Street, sort of behind Russell House.” They are Caitlin Palmer ’13, Tobias Butler ’13, Anna Swartz ’13, Emily Black ’13, and Hilary Rappaport ’13. But together, they are Sexty Five Pearl. WHATUPPPPPP.

The adventures are beyond stimulating: sometimes they install shower heads, sometimes they make artichoke dip, but always they blog about it, and why not? They even have a doorbell! We spoke with Sexty-Five correspondent Anna Swartz and sought to learn more about what makes Sexty Five Pearl so goddamn titillating and sexty . . .
