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.
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.
