This year, it feels like the revolving door of internet trends has been coming and going faster than Julia Fox could say “Uncuht Jamz”—each with a lifespan shorter than the Miu Miu mini–skirt that took over our feeds and convinced us all that this scrap of low–waisted khaki was enough to cover up the shame of reverting to Y2K trends. 2022 online trends had us acting like Patrick Bateman taking ourselves on solo–dates in the name of self–care as if we aren’t just antisocial, lonely suckers too lazy to make a Hinge profile. Anyways, YOU GET THE POINT! These internet moments come and go and we can’t help but buy into them—because what else is going to fill the endless void in our minds reminding us that we’re like Chicken Little screaming that the world is ending and climate change is imminent? Without further ado, here are Street’s favorite internet trends of 2022.
2022 has been a year for rebirth. Not just for us, but also for music.
“What exactly do you do for an encore?” You go on tour for the first time in over a decade. Legendary English rock band Pulp, whose songs span topics from perverse and frustrating sex to the UK class system, first split up in 2002 after their release of We Love Life. They reunited in 2011, releasing only one single, “After You.” The last time the band performed was in February of 2013. Now, they are teaming up, once again, to tour 11 cities in Summer 2023.
Many of us will experience some form of chronic pain or illness in our lifetime. One study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that over half of adults in the United States have been diagnosed with at least one chronic disease, while many grapple with two or more.
Philadelphia foodie culture is elite, and Spasso is a hidden gem within its broad array of offerings. Though the city is home to a variety of dining options, it can be difficult to find the time to venture off Penn’s campus and explore. More than that, as college students, it’s difficult to find a restaurant that’s both high quality and won’t break the bank. Paying for transportation, the meal, and the tip can quickly add up. At Spasso, this isn’t a concern. You get top restaurant quality without the anxiety or guilt about the idea of checking your bank account after you’ve finished enjoying the meal.
A few weekends ago, as I was getting ready to go out, I received a horrifying text message from my mother: “I started watching Tell Me Lies.” For any girl who just started college, if your mom sends you this same text, you should scream, panic, and very quickly change your family’s Hulu password.
Country music has been a staple of American culture for decades. Stars like Blake Shelton, Garth Brooks, and Tim McGraw have made names for themselves in this genre, singing about blue–collar life and the lifestyles of the American South.
TikTok is the powerhouse driving today's cultural trends. Artists of all kinds flock to the platform to kick–start their careers, and musicians are no exception. Indie musicians are eager to blow up on TikTok by posting short videos teasing lyrics and upcoming releases. However, success on the platform proves elusive for many, and those that attain it face troubles transforming TikTok views into a sustainable music career. After reaching their desired level of exposure, musicians on TikTok often struggle to separate their professional identity from the app.
Hailing from less than an hour outside of Philly, Jack Franklin has certainly made the most of his four years at Penn, rising to leadership positions in both the A Cappella Council and Counterparts A Cappella. For those wondering, the Penn a cappella scene is only a little bit like Pitch Perfect, and there are unfortunately no Riff–Offs. Aside from leading tours for Kite and Key, an experience he says is “always the highlight of my week,” Jack takes initiative within his school, leading in Wharton Cohorts and serving as the vice president of Wharton Alliance. Most characteristically, though, Jack makes sure to perfectly combine his creative and more academic passions, because what's life without a little music?
It’s a truth well–known that history has a tendency of repeating itself, and in the dynamic world of fashion, trend cycles have proven this to be true.
Tumblr aficionados rejoice, everyone else beware: The early 2010s are back. The bountiful recent album releases, from The 1975’s Being Funny in a Foreign Language to Carly Rae Jepsen's The Loneliest Time has been a nostalgic reckoning for OG fans, introducing new fans to the indie sleaze glory that was 2013. Arctic Monkeys joined the rankings with the release of The Car, their seventh studio album, on Oct. 21, 2022. But don’t expect AM, though many fans wistfully do. The band is maturing, and the album is self–aware of that fact.
In a matter of minutes, what started as a homecoming game’s halftime show shifted into a massive student protest, as dozens of students took Franklin Field by storm with three orange banners outlining their demands from Penn’s administration: Save the UC Townhomes, Divest, Pay PILOTs. The disruption—touted by Fossil Free Penn as their biggest protest ever—was the culmination of the activism group’s 39–day–encampment outside of College Hall.
The Great British Baking Show used to live up to its name. It used to be great, so great that if you said it was the best culinary program on television, you'd be met with little to no backlash. That is no longer the case. This season’s “Mexican Week” episode of The Great British Baking Show solidified the series as much less than its name suggests.
On Oct. 16, the 60th New York Film Festival (NYFF), presented by Film at Lincoln Center, came to an end after a 17–day cinematic marathon. Featuring a wide range of quirky, subversive, and most importantly, inherently different films from across the world, the festival is a potent testament to the youth of cinematic art and its everlasting appeal, even after the severe effects from the COVID–19 pandemic. Since its creation in 1963, the NYFF is one of the longest–running and most prestigious non–competitive film festivals in the United States.

My parents told me they were getting a divorce on August 25, 2021. I was 17.
A decade ago, Carly Rae Jepsen asked us to call her, maybe. And since then, we’ve left her on read, sent her to voicemail, and effectively ghosted her from the cultural consciousness. Now, ten years later, Jepsen’s new album, The Loneliest Time, is here, and it’s time for all of us to pick up the phone and give her a call.
CO–OP Restaurant & Bar is nestled on South 33rd Street in University City, catering to residents and visitors alike, offering them a refined, yet unpretentious dining experience. The restaurant is just as chic as its café space and hotel aptly named “The Study.” Recently, CO–OP held a preview event celebrating the debut of their new restaurant concept, featuring an all–new head chef and restaurant staff and a focus on locally–sourced ingredients, Mid–Atlantic cuisine, and regional cooking practices complimented with a modern twist. This new direction is indicative of CO–OP’s intention to bring more upscale options to the University City area, particularly to those visiting or attending local universities such as Penn.
