Weekend Playlist: Songs That You Wouldn’t Believe They Play at Kenyon Basketball Games But They Actually Do

Kenyon Men’s Basketball has had a great season, and as it comes to a close I can’t help reflecting not only on the gameplay but the sweet music that fills Tomsich during any time out. Now, I’m not sure who’s on AUX at these things, but they are a bit of a deejaying prodigy. They have an unmatched gift of throwing on a playlist of songs that you wouldn’t believe make sense for a basketball game, and yet, there they are. There is no way I could be as masterful as whoever chooses these songs, but I’ll try my best to recreate this excellence in a Weekend Playlist.

The Monday Catchup

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of the Monday Cats Up with yours truly. Oh sorry. Catchup.

But speaking of cats, I have a personal update to share with you all before I dive into the week that has passed and the week ahead. Yes, I was ashamed to admit this at first, but I need to be as honest as I can: I like Moxie now.

Weekday Playlist: Valentine’s Day (But Extremely Unhelpful)

 

Hey everyone. It’s The Thrill‘s resident hopeless romantic here.

When I’m not daydreaming about people who may or may not even make eye contact with me on Middle Path, I spend an obscene amount of time crafting Spotify playlists that only have one consistent listener– myself. Well, until now. With Valentine’s Day being tomorrow, I thought I would share some music with all of you. Continue reading

The Monday Catchup

I don’t know if The Monday Catchup has ever had a theme in the past. Probably not because, like, why would it?

But Valentine’s Day is coming up, and I think this year I should be more celebratory than usual. And no, not because my annual men-are-garbage tweet has become low hanging fruit. I think I should lean into the fact that writing for a comedy blog is the most romantic thing I could do at Kenyon. And being in love can be fun, so why not embrace it! Continue reading

The Monday Catchup

Another week has gone by already? It’s almost hard to believe. For me, the past week has faded into a blur of reading about political theory, meticulously creating Spotify playlists that only I will ever listen to, and lying on the floor. My failing memory, in this sense, doesn’t put me in the best position to catch you all up. But never fear! I have enlisted some of my friends to share a highlight of their week.

The Monday Catchup

It’s a new semester. A new year. And a new decade. And with all this newness, the Monday Catchup is under new management. My management! With the first week of the semester under our belts, there is much to discuss. For me personally, the past week has been marked by speed walks to the registrar, a long-awaited reunion with the deli’s Mickey Eggs, and an ongoing inner monologue about whether or not I’m “built for a sorority.” For my peers and I, falling back into our Kenyon routines in this new year meant a year of firsts, including:
