Giddy up cowboys and cowgirls! You too Trish, ya heifer! I’m sick of your soft talk about “snow” in “April.” I need to see some gritty two-timing partners at this school. Hell what would Philander say if he saw you complaining? I’m sure he slashed trees and vines, rode through mud with a machete in his mouth, shirtless, ululating in pain from sustained flesh wounds. Despite this you know he kissed the earth like it was a teat supple with honey before he uttered the words
“How was your weekend?”
“Pretty average, so mostly sad”
“Some people need a reality check”
YEAS bretherin! I agree. Check your reality with these things below
What: Spanish and Latin American Film Festival: “Post mortem”
- Mario Cornejo is going about his daily business of writing autopsy reports at the military hospital in Santiago, when the Pinochet coup d´état shakes this heretofore apolitical character out of his state of apathy. Post Mortem is neither a reconstruction of the Pinochet days, nor an angry denunciation of the period. Instead, Larraín offers a borderline-surreal – Lynchian – black comedy to show, among other things, how easy it is for ordinary people to sleepwalk into a climate of atrocity, either as victims, collaborators, or as both.
- “ordinary people..sleepwalk into a climate of atrocity” sounds like Kenyon students to me.
- ROAST ME
When: Thursday, April 5 at 6:30pm to 9:00pm

What: Staged Reading of “Baltimore”
- The Kenyon Department of Dance, Drama, and Film, in conjunction with KCDC, will present a staged reading of “Baltimore” by Kirsten Greenidge, directed by Jonathan Tazewell. This 2016 play set at a university just after a racial incident of aggression deals with issues of representation, freedom of expression and the legacy of racial oppression.
- Gird your loins.
