Ravens fans, 49ers fans and the sports–impaired alike: the Super Bowl is over and you can stop hating one another (or pretending to give a shit) and reunite over a common love: everybody’s favorite Thursday publication. That’s 34th Street, y’all, and get excited because this week’s issue is an [insert sports metaphor of your choice].
This week’s feature examines the role of politics in the classroom and what it’s like to be a college republican in a liberal arts world. Music gives you something to talk about besides Beyonce’s half–time performance with a double–profile of artists Xaphoon Jones and BADBADNOTGOOD. We promise that it’s goodgoodnotbad. Highbrow gives you badasses out there a taste of what it’s like to steal from frat parties, while Lowbrow pleases your parents by giving you helpful hints on tackling (haha, sports…get it?) OCR.
And just in case you’re wondering who Amy G’s doppleganger is, check out Film this week. Bonus: two faculty members share a striking resemblance to the Muppets. Arts showcases the Counterparts’ Joey Wallerstein, and Bhargavi Ammu might be our cutest Ego ever. If all of our awesome features have you salivating from excitement, stop by Four Worlds Bakery, featured this week in Food and Drink, for some topnotch treats.
It was the night before Feb Club, and all through the campus, not a senior was quiet, not even the dampest. Street road along high in the sky, offering glances at its Ego, Jonathan Youshaei, and a hot lump of Meh for all those who didst not click, even if watching a movie while sick.
As the pages turned and the students learned, Shop n’ Bag
churned out some better grub than FroGro, while our lowest of all bros looked upon THE INTERNET
as it grows and grows. And then, as those forever alone among them worried about their cat–filled futures, music helped them out with a Heartbreak Mixtape
Planning for new beginnings, Arts brought us First Fridays
and Features a cup of coffee from Avril 50
, ready to weep with us through till February when all of our nights would be nifty.
Check out our feature on Miles Cartwright, College junior and captain of the basketball team, and Highbrow’s new, recurring sex advice column with Miss Cassandra. Learn more about this week’s Ego, Angel Contrera, and check out Ego’s guide to keep or drop your classes.
Got friends returning from study abroad? We’re sure you do, and we even accounted for that. Catch up on the movies
now playing at the Rave, and study up on your friends Beats Overseas in Music. We got you.
Let’s get this out of the way: SHOUTOUTS SHOUTOUTS SHOUTOUTS!
And on that note, finals! Papers! Formals! There is just not enough time in the day for your average straight–A, organization–leading, sports–playing, a capella–singing Penn student. No wonder we’re all hopped up on artificial intelligence — and not just the kind in your coffee.
If your study habits tend more toward “legal”, check out Food and Drink’s guide to caffeine. Or just take a breather and read about what the president of Excelano Project does in the shower.
Music helps you to refresh your musical lexicon so you don’t look like a dunce next time you’re talking to a music theorist. Film give you the straight dope on which films SHOULD be winning the Oscars next year. Arts helps preps you for the holidays with glitter. And Highbrow preps the Senior class for its last semester, via someone who just survived hers. Tear.
Second to last writer’s meeting of the semester! 6:30 p.m., 4015 Walnut. See you there, right??
Two VIP PSAs– Shoutouts
and Senior Superlative voting
end TONIGHT at 8 p.m. Get 'em in! (Take a look at our handy dandy Shoutouts box on the right.)
Cultural Elite as you knew it is gone. But don’t go mourning the loss of Penn’s most scandalous senior year tradition just yet. Take off that black lace veil… you look ridiculous. Cultural Elite was a caterpillar; it’s been hiding in a cocoon or whatever metamorphosis metaphor you want to make and it’s about to burst out as a beautiful butterfly. See, we at Street took into account everything people loved and hated about the feature and came up with something new and exciting. We just love to shake things up.
Here’s the plan: Senior Superlatives. Just like the ones you did in high school but we’re doing them Street Style. So retro! We’ll post categories and you, the people, will nominate whoever you want. We’ll review submissions and send out a survey of the finalists for everyone to vote on. Yay democracy! Choose wisely because this year, Cultural Elite is up to you.
Check out the categories and nominate your roommate/best friend/slam piece over at 34st.com/superlatives.
Mum’s the word when it comes to academic dishonesty. As the writer of this week’s feature finds out, secrets are the sort of thing you don’t share — unlike problem sets or exam answers.
Ego talks to a funny gal after our own hearts with an affinity for BBP. Film takes a holiday movie trip down memory lane. Arts has some classes for you to take that aren’t in Addams. Highbrow gets waxed for Woodser.
Music fills you in on the bands who you may not know playing at the Penn Music Collective show tonight. Pregame with the aid of Backpage’s vodka blind taste test. Try Food’s hangover cures in the morning.
Lowbrow has classifieds (Do you need a job? Are you good at doing impressions of falafel sandwiches?? See inside.)
The last regular writer’s meeting of the semester is tonight at 6:30, 4015 Walnut. It’s never too late to get involved. We’ve been waiting for you…
Hi there. You still with us? Good. Then read on about Penn’s own dissidents. Transfer students share their stories on why they left Penn in this week’s feature.
Ego talks to the Big Men On Campus, and Film chills with Agyness Deyn. Music fills you in on a hip hop “Initiative” at Penn. Arts explores another initiative (sans quotes) by the Kelly Writer’s House, which pairs artists with writers.
Food’s theme this week is themes. Can you say meta?
Highbrow gossips, and Lowbrow hands out awards for the best toilets on campus (see if your favorite took home the gold!) Backpage has doggie woggies. Poochy woochies. Frat dogs.
Writer’s meeting tonight! 6:30. 4015 Walnut. Frat dogs welcome (please).
