I didn't go to the reunion, but my friend Sam cut together a video that played on a loop there. Watching it brought back a flood of memories. Here it is, if you want to get into a liberal arts time machine headed for Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT, 2001-2005:
  1. I had a full head of hair. And those glasses.
  2. The boys from MGMT (when they were still The Management) performing a stripped down version of "Kids," a song they were tired of by this point.
  3. "Yo, but this scene is really phat, man. The last band that played? Everybody was fuckin' movin' to that shit. It was so lively."
  4. Taking a picture of Kellen (with whom I am still very close) with my prized Canon Digital Elf. Still wear that houndstooth coat from time to time.
  5. Technology!
  6. A guy known as Smiley. Super wasted here. He's now a life-coach.
  7. How footage of us shooting my senior thesis film ended up in here I'm not sure, but there it is.
  8. Daniela in an early incarnation of SNOWBLINK, backed by a chorus of dudes. She and I had brunch last week.
  9. One of the best parties of senior year was the Small Antenna magazine release party, at the roller rink, with bands playing at the end of the skating floor.
  10. This is not a still from Dazed and Confused.
  11. Victor, aka Kool A.D. from Das Racist, playing drums in someone else's band.
  12. Marty. We made mix CDs for each other the night before graduation. Have only seen her once since then. 💔
  13. Katie who I see all the time, and Timmy my dancing God.
  14. "I've never been on roller skates before. Only on blades!" Look at all that hair!
  15. In the rad beige jacket, Kim, who would go onto be be a contestant on America's Next Top Model.
  16. Technology!
