Shutterbutton: You Edition! Send Us Your Pretty Pics

We live on a college campus in autumn. This is one of the prettiest places in the world to be right now; fall at Penn is where admissions brochures come from, and what people think of when they imagine “Ivy League.” Naturally, our newsfeeds have been more than a little cluttered by muploads and photographers alike posting homages to the season. We want to see those pictures!

Send us your beautiful foliage, your waning sunlight or your “people playing frisbee in the Quad without a care in the world” and we’ll put them up on UTB for the world to see. You can tweet them at us, tag our Facebook page in your pics or use good old-fashioned email. Just send them quick— soon it will be too cold to operate your shutter button without freezing a finger off.

To the People Who Thought the Fall Fest Photo-Booth Pics Would Never Surface

You were wrong. We’ve combed through and selected our favorites, compiling a collection chock full of mustaches and people who could afford to spend more time practicing seductive faces in the mirror (Kidding! We’re into it). CONTEST ALERT: Captions for photos six and seven are blank so that we can identify our most clever readers of them all. We want funny.

Photo 1: “We’re using such weird metaphors.”

Fling Photo Contests: UTB And DP Style

Do you like competitions but are not very good at doing things? Do you take pictures that aren’t great but are hilarious? No worries. Send us your memorable/scandalous/sloppy Fling photos and we’ll post them! (We’ll ensure confidentiality by covering up any identifying details.) No need for actual camera images: iPhones, Blackberries and toy cameras all work fine! The pics that we put up will be entered into a highly prestigious caption contest. Best caption for each photo will win something great!

What? Does our caption contest not titillate you? If you’re actually talented with a camera, or whatever, the DP wants to reward you for your observant eye! Just Tweet your Fling photo at the DP or post it on their Facebook wall. If your pic is chosen as the winner, you get a screen-printed Fling concert poster and an old Fling T-shirt that someone left behind! (It’s vintage, okay?)

In Case You Made It Through All Of Valentine’s Day Without Vomitting

Update: Okay, well, we had these really awesome pictures of this super-sappy met-at-Wharton couple taking their wedding photos around Penn, but they and Natalie threw a shitfit and said we couldn’t put them on the blog so they’re down. We have instead put up our artist’s rendition of what what going on in the photos. Still tryna vom? View the real versions here.

This should do the trick. Happy Whartonite couple meets at Penn, gets married then comes back and takes pictures around campus. Awwwwwwbarf. If you can stand it, there’s more romance from photographer Natalie Franke after the jump.

Bloomers Show Makes Amy G. LOL

Here it is, conclusive evidence that our prez has a sense of humor.  Guess who was spotted enjoying a Saturday night performance of Penn’s all-female musical and sketch comedy troupe‘s spring show, “O Bloomer, Where Art Thou”?  The one and only Amy Gutmann! Our fair president was in attendance with her husband, and it would be fair to say she was laughing her little heinie off.  (As a disclaimer, we should mention that several Bloomers girls are former Street editors.)  Check out some pics below.

Now that’s comedy.

ShutterButton: Exclusive First Look At Mask & Wig’s Spring Show

Tae Kim of ShutterButton fame also moonlights as a member of Mask & Wig.  In what could be considered an act of shameless self-promotion that we’re instead going to call a special sneak peek, he shares some snapshots from M&W’s musical, which premieres this Thursday.

Engineering senior Jon Kruse contemplates his leading role as Michelangelo.
