It’s become clear that Kenyon’s obsession with Peirce’s social media presence — and, in particular, the tweets/status updates of one Chef Meagan — borders on infatuation. So, in appreciation of Chef Meagan’s spell over the student body, and in anticipation of Social Board and Cinearts’ screening of Spike Jonze’s Her tomorrow in Gund Gallery, we proudly present a rare outtake from Her, chronicling the unique romance of a confused boy (or campus) and his OS (or dining hall social media guru).

Didn’t get your fill of the John Green/Jon Green clash of the titans chronicled by our corporate sponsor, the Collegian, yesterday? Well, you’re in luck, because we’re sharing an exclusive — 16 full minutes of Green on Green, with topics ranging from life to love to 18th-century peasant diseases. Enjoy!
So this came out today, after a teaser in December. Good to see so many International Studies Majors represented — after all, it is our largest major. Also I was a huge fan of the artsy, and frankly very classy black and white free-form jazz sequence. It really captures the essence of Kenyon College, where bikes grow on walls and people do interpretive dance on the steps of Rosse Hall.
Check out the conclusion to the whodunit The Unwonted Speaker after the jump. Definitely let us know if you’d like to see more of Chase next year on the Thrill.
We get a lot of submissions at the Thrill, we really try to run as many as we can, but there is always stuff that we don’t run for whatever reason. A couple of weeks ago we got a submission from Matt Eley. Matt doesn’t go to Kenyon, at least yet, but he will be attending next year. Due to his proximity to campus, he has gotten to know the school pretty well and has even taken to writing about it. His submission was three short stories, all centering around a Kenyon custodian named Chase and the mysteries he solves. Generally the Thrill doesn’t do long-form so we tried to find the best way to share these with the Kenyon Community. The best way we saw fit was to get a student to read his stories aloud. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we did. Meet Chase after the jump.
Apparently Kenyon used to have a television show and channel known as KCTV. I’ve really been digging around on YouTube today for Kenyon-stuff and I have not been disappointed. This is a plea to the Kenyon Administration: PLEASE BRING BACK KCTV. Did I mention that they featured Phil Jordan (PJ) dancing to Madonna’s “Cherish”–which begs the question: Can D-Cat dance?
Some more KCTV moments after the jump.
