ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! Last night one particularly bold Quaker bb (who hasn’t yet heard of Penn Admirers) announced his undying love and belief in the fate Ben Franklin/the Penn housing gods have chosen for him. Though very possibly a Facebook hack, we’re really rooting for this guy. It’s his birthday, after all!
Love is a lot of things. It’s fondness, it’s sadness, it’s mind blowing epiphanies and elation. This Valentine’s Day (or Single’s Awareness Day, whichever you prefer), Street would just like to tell you… we love you.
This week, Street presents to you, LOVE in all shapes and sizes. Highbrow brings bitterness and heartbreak, made up for by our lovely Ego, Isabel Friedman. Want to listen to some depressing tunes today? You can’t. Music has been so kind as to decode the cheesiest of lyrics for you, to make you both feel better and sick to your stomach with “awwww”dorability. Sick of that? Take a look at Film’s use of social psych (you know fear and love produce the same physiological response?) as they guide you through the top horror movies for V–Dizzle.
Still down? Check out F&D’s brand new blind date, it’s guaranteed to make your heart skip a beat in the right, sympathetic way. At least you can be happy for others, right? Taxidermy is also pretty… adorable? We think? Arts shows us its pretty side nonetheless. On the other hand, maybe you need some advice. A little somethin’ somethin’ to get that someone someone. Lowbrow’s got you there—check out this amazing guide to great chocolate creations you should definitely buy for your loved ones!
Finally, check out something you all made. Something that brought a whole chunk of Penn together, both in sickness and in health, in sadness and in hardship, till death do we part. It also brought a whole bunch of Street together to produce it, and we think we can definitely say…
Roses are red, violets are blue, confess undying feelings and get ‘em published, too! That’s right people, with Valentines Day right around the corner, the DP staff knows that love is in the air…and they’re willing to help you score. You can submit your love note fo’ free here until February 11th and have it magically appear in the print version of the DP on Valentine’s Day <3. Be sure to spread the love on Facebook and tell your friends, roommates, professors and mom about this awesome event. Remember, only Penn students and staff can actually submit the notes.
So, go forth! Tell that freshman in your writing seminar how they’re just write for you. Or just proclaim your slightly obsessive love for your MGMT 100 TA for all of us to see. Even if they turn you down, UTB will always love you.
Quite a bit, apparently. Spotted early this morning amidst College Green was a newly rainbow-hued LOVE statue. According to our sources, the makeover, touted as a “public art installation,” may be the first of many Cubic Street Art projects. Maybe it has to do with our school’s gay-friendly status? Perhaps.
LOVE it? Hate it? Let us know in the comments.
No matter the strength of your current relationship, Valentine’s Day is the ultimate laundry machine test for any couple. At the end of this delicate cycle, will you still be the inseparable pair of socks that you started as, or will you lose your love match and be doomed to spend eternity alone?
Now just take a moment to imagine the horror of being alone on Valentine’s Day! At this point, so what if Franco’s been sleeping around with his Econ TA? He’s just trying to get a good grade; it’s nothing personal. And who cares if Alice has one foot out of the closet? What did you honestly expect after taking her to see VagMons? Besides, isn’t like 80% of the female population bi-curious anyway? Yeah, that’s totally a thing… Right? Oh gosh. What if s/he dumps you?
To ensure that your relationship stays intact and that you don’t in fact die alone this Valentine’s, be sure follow these 10 easy steps.
Friends, lovers, that kid who stole our laundry freshman year, lend me your ears: Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. Love it or hate it, you can’t escape Hallmark’s favorite holiday. As a supplement to the couples ogling each other on campus, the splashes of red and pink assaulting your eyes and other symtoms of VD, we’d like to present Love Week.
Starting today and leading up to the big day Tuesday, we’ll be bringing you the best in love, sex, lust, chocolate and general unrestrained horniness from Houston Hall to your booty call. Happy Valentine’s Day!
This is Luke Kelly. He’s in love. The only problem is,
he won’t shut up about it the girl of his dreams lives 5000 miles away in Brazil. And he’s seen her only once since his balls dropped. Nevertheless, Luke is determined to track down his Brazilian biddie and profess his love for her. But he’s really making the whole ordeal into a huge production. Literally.
The Wharton student has launched a Kickstarter account in an effort to raise a whopping $35,000 in funds for his romantic odyssey. Because a roundtrip to Rio doesn’t cost $1200 or anything. Luke claims that he needs this extraordinary sum of money because he plans to bring an amateur film crew with him on his voyage, and hopes to make many stops on the way to “assemble the footage into a documentary about love, youth, and travel.”
So sponsor his “cause.” Or just watch the Michael Cera movie instead.
It always brings smiles to our faces when high rise residents transform the colossal stacks of ugly in which they dwell into cheerful and artistic messages. Now the bottom floors of Rodin are warming our hearts with love for their girl Sarahleh. She must really deserve it, because an entire
four six floors strategically collaborated on this. Four Six! Four Six for you, Saraleh! You go, Saraleh!
On week nine of The Bachelorette, we leave all of last week’s families back in the States and head off to Fiji with Ashley and her three boytoys. The episode begins with replays of past dates with the guys, accompanied by Ashley’s voiceover—which, because the show opened with the same thing last week, has become so predictable at this point that it could be formatted as a sing-along with a giant red rose bouncing over the words.
We snap back to reality where Ashley opens the door to a big surprise. Oh my! Who could possibly be at the door? Commercial break. The suspense is killing no one.
Okay, wait. We spoke too soon. The show returns from its break and while most of us thought it’d be Ivy Man Ames, since he’s got the means to show up unannounced and was the most recent dumpee, we’re actually really surprised to see Ryan’s permanently happy face!
Week Four also inspires viewers to create a wonderful drinking game: take a shot each time Ashley mentions Bentley throughout the episode. Warning: side effects may include a busted liver and no recollection of the second half of the episode.
In Thailand, Ashley meets with Annie, a navigator, which is apparently the mansion/villa equivalent of a hotel concierge, and tells her that she needs to plan a few dates…with 12 guys. In response to Annie’s, “Oh my God!,” Ashley assures the navigator that “these guys are hot.”
