I pledge allegiance…to the band…of Mr. Kweder–or so he hopes.
Kenn Kweder is the latest to jump on the crowdfunding bandwagon, trying to raise money Kickstarter-style to make a documentary about his life.
“An icon” and “a pioneer” in the Philly music scene (according to his website), but more accurately a cross between Mr. Schneebly and a fratty Bruce Springsteen, Kweder is looking for your support. A 5 dollar donation buys you exclusive production updates while they shoot the film. 50 bucks gets you a digital copy of the film. $1000 earns you a private house concert.
Let’s rock today!
There are always a few of you each year–the select bunch who haven’t mastered the art of drunk blogging for Writing Seminar. While the rest of campus is praying to the gods of Pong and Porcelain, you’re holed up in a Huntsman GSR…which is why we present you with:
The Anti-Flinger’s Guide to Fling
1. Start your Fling Friday in the VP Stacks, where we’re sure an Independent Study (if you know what we mean) won’t do it for ya. Booty call a friend, describing your location with the Dewey Decimal System.
2. How desperate is too desperate, you ask? Rising freshmen are fair game. 11th-graders are a no-go–unless they’ve broken a 2100.
3. On the off-chance you start to envy red cups and the people who hold them, remind yourself that you are classy. Take swigs from the bottle of Poland Spring (without the label, of course) that you snuck into the library, cringing with each swallow. Remind yourself that it’s only water.

According to current forecasts, Tyga may have his way. Things aren’t looking pretty for Fling weekend, with a 70% chance of rain for Friday (and that nasty 14MPH wind to the northeast). Don’t fret! You can camp all day inside a Freshman’s room in the Quad…unless, of course, you happen to be a Freshman.
In case none of your Facebook friends go to Penn, or if you’re just colorblind and thought that campus has been unusually dusty lately, then we suggest you get into the Holi-day spirit! After Saturday’s cross between a paint party and color war, we have one casualty: our beloved Button.
The glowstick explosion over campus was cause yesterday for a scrubdown of our namesake, restoring it to its *virginal* alabaster.
Want a free coffee every day (EVERY DAY) until the end of the semester?
That’s the prize for winning Williams Cafe’s coffee concoction contest, running through Sunday. Submit your original idea for a coffee–all syrups, hazelnut shavings, and spices are fair game–on Facebook, Twitter, or in person, and the best cup will win a place on the menu (and a helluva lotta caffeine!).
We’re not Joe-king about this one!
If eating a crouton-less Sweetgreen salad isn’t your idea of eight crazy nights, you’re in luck.
Metropolitan Bakery on 40th and Walnut will be celebrating Passover this week with a special bread-less menu including handmade matzoh (flavored and plain), colorful macaroons, and flourless chocolate cake. We know your bowels will be screaming for mercy after eight days of eating dry cracker, so we urge you to try the matzo ball soup. Your bubbe would be proud.
Thanks to a subtle SPEC tweet, we’re pretty sure one of the Fling artists will be Tyga!! The clue (above, in today’s DP classifieds) included references to the songs “Faded” “Dope” and “Far Away.” Stay tuned for details!!
Update: The DP has confirmed that Tyga is, in fact, coming. Get excited!
Sure, Corporate Finance is stressful, but this guy’s time-value of zen seems a little out of whack. For those of you considering doing Tai Chi at 9am on a Monday, we urge you to check out Wharton’s San Francisco campus.
Greekdex is back

Oh No!--Someone pulled the fire alarm in VP. We're not sure who or why, but we hope you stay warm! Here's to doing work in Huntsman!
