Real World Reunion

Nostalgic for the days of sororstitutes on Real World already? Relive all the action that is cast member and Penn-hookuper Josh Colon as his train wreck band graces MarBar this Thursday at 9.

If his music doesn’t entice you (read: it probably won’t), at least show up to see if he rekindles the affair with one of our very own.

When Street Stops Being Polite, And Starts Getting Real

Oh, except the feature this week: a fiction piece by Sean Whiteman, the winner of Street‘s 2010 Fiction Contest, illustrated by Daniel Schwartz. Congratulations, also, to the contest’s two runners up: Will Steinberger and Zachary Sergi.

The rest of the issue, however, is real talk. Check out Street‘s take on ChatRoulette, an interview with the mysterious “Four Amigos” of Pho King, a survey of World Music (we’ll forgive the misnomer), a preview of the PMA’s new Picasso exhibit and a (lowbrow) look at New York’s fashion week. Maura Goldstein is Ego of the Week, and highbrow has your usual gossip and scandal.

Pick it up. Download the .pdf. And come to the 6:30 p.m. Writer’s Meeting tonight at 4015 Walnut. Because we’re willing do just about anything in your room.

Real World Reppin’

In case you haven’t been checking any listerv you’re on, ever, we’d advise you to check The Real World (on MTV, not to be confused with the actual real world) tonight at 10 p.m. You may or may not get a glimpse of some of our fellow Quakers keeping it classy… and by classy, we mean not at all. We won’t drop names, but you can pretty much just ask around.

Can’t wait/have something better to do than watch Real World? There’s a sneak peak here.

A Capella Goes Online

In a few weeks, the a capella groups will be having their fall shows. But a few weeks is Such. A. Long. Time. So what to do to sate your need for watching groups of people harmonize in semi-cirlces? Why, read about the people who make up those semi-circles, of course!

The Pennchants, whose repertoire includes such classics as “Jessie’s Girl,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” and “Play That Funky Music White Boy,” have just started a blog to keep its members and groupies aware of the latest happenings in the world of all male, classic rock a capella. This is the window into the world of the Pennchants that you always dreamed you could climb into, with info on their shows, CDs, and other a capella-related issues (like “Where’s the Pennchant?”). Perhaps one of these post will even explain the genesis of their bodacious costumes (see below).

PS- Bonus points to the blog for including an amusing “Joke of the Day” thing on the side.
