Do Yourself a Favor: Go To The Filmseries on Wednesday

What: A Totally Sweet Movie about A Totally Awful Place
When: 30 minutes too early, Wednesday Evening. (7:30pm)
Where: Where it always is.
Piece of stolen wit that made this worth posting:We bring you one final exercise in pessimism: “Chinatown“, Roman Polanski’s consummate film noir (and crucial quasi-prequel to “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?“). The shameless corruption and flagrant dehumanization on display in this picture rival only the construction and operation of the Usdan University Center in its scope and intensity. I don’t have anything novel to say about this film—it’s just perfect, and you should see it as many times as you can (especially on a big screen). It will reaffirm your belief that movies can whisk us away to an absorbing fictional world and at the same time harshly reflect the realities of our own historical condition.” –Melissa Tuckman ’08 [from argus]

The 1st Annual Great Wesleyan Caper

Jesse Bordwin ’10 thinks you don’t have enough to do besides midterms. Or that you don’t have enough fun. Something to that effect. To solve this problem, Jesse has create the 1st Annual Great Wesleyan Caper. What in the Usdan is this, you ask? According to the Caper website (thegreatwesleyancaper.weebly.com):

“One way to describe the GWC is as a giant scavenger hunt murder mystery extravaganza. It’s very involved, and those who are playing will be forced to use their skills to follow a long trail of clues to solve the kidnapping. It will take days, weeks even, to get to the bottom of the mystery.

What kidnapping? What mystery?
You haven’t heard? Oh, it’s terrible! Last night, somewhere between the hours of 2:00 am and 4:00 am, my roommate Gabriel Fries was abducted. I was fast asleep and only when I woke up to go to class did I discover the blood on the sheets that was the only trace of my poor friend. That and the one clue we have that might set us on the trail to his recovery. I loved Gabe dearly, and I’d like to have him back. And that’s why I’m putting you, the best minds of Wesleyan University, on the case. And oh yes! There’s a nice reward involved.

…There will be a trail of 40 clues that will lead to the location of Gabe’s whereabouts. Along the way, you will figure out who took him and why. The first person/team to get to the last clue will save Gabe Fries, and win the jackpot…Once everyone is registered, I will give each team Clue #1 as the first step to solving the 1st Annual Great Wesleyan Caper, on Wednesday, October the 17th, the first day of classes after Fall Break. From there on out, it is an all-out race to be the first team to reach the final clue.”

Just think of it as Humans vs. Humans– all the campus craziness, with no zombie carnage (bummer, right?). Of course, there are plenty of other rules/regulations/guidelines that will help to make this crazy idea into a reality. So if you’re interested, visit the website to read up and register. Happy hunting!

EDIT: Re: Anonymous Comments– A disclaimer on the site notes, “[D]on’t be surprised if you see the real Gabe Fries walking around Campus, going to class, or making films… he was just generous enough to lend his person to the Caper, and if you see him around, it doesn’t mean you’ve solved the mystery.”
