The Monday Catchup



Chiddy hydrates with Heinz in-between mad rhymes

Ask any grizzled college veteran; the answer is always the same. In college, people party.

On special occasions and at smaller liberal arts institutions, the zenith of partying manifests itself in some sort of spring fling, end-of-the-year, beer-blurring banger with a  side of music and general light-hearted confusion. Tasty. All too familiar.

With that, I hope you were properly sent off by Summer Sendoff. I hope your clothes were stained by ketchup and beer in a way that would make Jackson Pollock jealous. I hope the only thing weighing you down was the Rubblebucket trumpet player as he crowd surfed. I hope you left class on Friday afternoon and whispered, “South Quad is calling, and I must go.”

How are you feeling today? Be sure to tell us in the comments!

Alarmed desk attendant is feeling “alright.” We feel that.

Weekend Playlist: Party Music For Uncool Kids

Look, you guys, I don’t know what music is cool. I think maybe I knew what was cool to listen to in 2008, but I haven’t really been keeping up since then. It’s exhausting! Not only is there new music coming out every single day, but all the coolest stuff is the stuff that’s hardest to listen to. I mean, have you tried listening to Blue Hawaii? It’s like a comps exam for your ears. No thanks! If keeping up with cool music makes your brain hurt but you still want to party to something besides Rihanna (people still listen to Rihanna, right?), try putting on these thoroughly uncool songs:
