A Majestic Musical Moment


Channeling Improv Everywhere, theatrical geniuses Sam Pasternack and Lee Marcus use the power of music to bring to life an integral part of the Penn experience–stuff watching. Who actually steals things? What if no one is willing to commit? Who can you trust? Does anything exciting happen in Harnwell!? Watch the video to find out!

Phallic Phoolishness -- To the bros drawing penises on the adorable "I want to change the world by..." chalkboard outside Harnwell: stop being dicks.

Saturday Night Special: Fire Burning (Harnwell Remix)

Do you live in Harnwell? (Or a high-rise? Or a dorm? Or, more generally, any inhabitable shelter?) Do you hate fire alarms? And do you love remixes of cheap club classics? If you answered “InTheNameofLuciferYES!” to any and/or all of the previous questions, then you’re in luck! Check out the musical stylings of 2403 Productions above in their rework of Sean Kinston’s chef-d’oeuvre, “Fire Burning,” which pokes fun at Harnwell’s love of fire alarms. Enjoy!

All’s Well That Ends (Harn)Well

One lucky tipster got more than she expected when she picked up her packages at Harnwell yesterday. Upon returning to her dorm, the resident was greeted with this friendly e-mail from the mailroom:

GOOD MORNING, YOU JUST CAME TO THE PACKAGE ROOM TO PICK UP THREE PACKAGES. ONE WAS A MIX AND WASN’T YOURS. I NEED YOU TO BRING THE PACKAGE THAT WAS NOT YOURS BACK, AND GET THE PACKAGE THAT WAS YOURS WHICH IS STILL HERE IN THE MAIL ROOM. PLEASE DO THIS IN A TIMELY MANNER SO THE RIGHT STUDENT CAN GET THEY PACKAGE AND YOU CAN ALSO GET YOURS. IF THIS IS NOT DONE IN A TIMELY MANNER PENN SECURITY WILL THAN HAVE TO GET INVOLVED IN THIS MATTER. THANK YOU, AND SORRY FOR THE MIX UP.
PLEASE RETURN THE PACKAGE THAT IS NOT YOURS ASAP.

The Harnwell mailroom: they track those packages down like it’s their job. Hopefully, they’ve already found the one leaning on their caps lock key.

All Of The (High Rise) Lights

Perhaps you saw the Facebook campaign last week asking High Rise residents to flash their lights at night. Here’s the result of that effort: a pretty cool minute-long visual with sweet background music! Tip of the hat to the people who did this for fun, but wag of the finger to Harrison for failing so miserably.

Things You Missed This Morning

How did you string these Fro Gro bags from Harrison to Harnwell? Why did you do this? A t-shirt was hanging on the chain that said “We appreciate you, Penn Police!” Our early-bird tipster says the artists (?) had to take it down already, which is disappointing considering how impressive the chain is.

Update: More pictures and awesome video of them taking it down after the jump!

Blackout In Harnwell (Not The Fun Kind)

For those of you who haven’t noticed, Harnwell is basically blending it with the night sky at the moment. Tipsters are bed buggin’ out because for those who don’t keep track (i.e. most people), tonight is almost three weeks until the one year anniversary of Harnwell’s last epic blackout.

Celebrating Fling a little early, are we? Someone get this building under control ASAP, before it’s too late.

Update: 11:28 pm. Power’s back on. Phew. Also, it’s Gaylord (yes, Gaylord) Harnwell’s 107th birthday. Perhaps his ghost came back to celebrate.

Power’s Out, Folks

Street photo editor Thomas Jansen sent in this photo of a powerless Harnwell College House (Rodin’s on the left, Harnwell’s on the right). We hear the power is out in Harnwell, ZBT and a few other surrounding buildings.

Don’t Be A Toilet Paper Scrooge

Take heed, studiers: this sign is posted in Harnwell’s rooftop lounge.

We assume they’re espousing a Marxian “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” theory of toilet paper consumption, i.e. take only so many squares as you need rather than stealing rolls like a greedy little bitch. It is so good of housekeeping to remind us to be considerate of our fellow man.
