Harry Styles has arguably reached the upper echelons of pop royalty. Starting off in the boy band One Direction, Styles was the perfect teenage heartthrob to multitudes of young girls in his fanbase. When the group went on indefinite hiatus in 2016, Styles’ solo material took off. The singer has since amassed a large following with multiple number–one hits and albums under his belt.
Imagine Disney+ or Kevin Feige doing a Game of Thrones prequel about House Targaryen. There would be more dragons, for sure. An amusing tour of the dragon pit with a flippant guide is warranted in the first ten minutes of the pilot, including several self–referential jokes. They might even have two dragons spew fire at each other, although no one would be harmed by the end of the episode.
Don’t Worry Darling, Olivia Wilde’s second directorial film after Booksmart, appears to be a mysterious thriller that follows Alice (Florence Pugh) and Jack Chambers (Harry Styles), who live perfect lives in a 1950s utopian town called Victory until things soon go awry and secrets emerge. The film is meant to be a drama—it tackles serious themes like manipulation, abuse, and paranoia. Yet, ironically, Don’t Worry Darling might be the year’s funniest movie.
During New York Fashion Week—a time when luxury brands capture the fashion world’s attention—one brand has forgone exclusivity in favor of accessibility.

In its hundredth year, with its eclectic display choices and warm yellow walls, the museum is defined by intimacy, approachability, and comfort.

Before the release of the album Ctrl in 2017, if you said the name SZA, you’d probably be met with a confused stare and an “excuse me?” Now, she’s a prominent name in female R&B, with a diehard fanbase who's hung onto her every word for the past five years—even though it’s been just as long since she’s put out a full–length project. Her debut release captured the world’s attention, with her lilting yet strong vocals leading Ctrl to five Grammy nominations and widespread critical acclaim. The album’s timelessness has allowed her to maintain relevance without putting out fresh content: it appeals to listeners from ages 13 to 30, with relatable lyrics and comforting tunes that apply to middle school drama just as well as a mid–20s break up.
A year ago, if someone told any television executive that the hottest new comedy was going to be a half–hour sitcom on ABC, that executive would’ve had their assistant’s assistant laugh in that person’s face, and for good reason. Until the premiere of ABC’s Abbott Elementary, nearly every new network sitcom in the last ten years has been dead on arrival. And even if shows like Young Sheldon and The Conners are able to maintain a consistent viewership, Abbott Elementary is the one being watched and adored by all of Hollywood for its nearly impossible feat of being successful both commercially and critically on a network.
Given Polyvinyl chloride, foil insulation, and metal plugs, the last thing to come to mind for most people would be a high–fashion runway show—but for the pioneers of The Space Age fashion movement, these construction materials were nothing short of inspiring.
Speaking with Cynthia Gu (C ‘23), it’s clear that she’s dedicated to grabbing every opportunity available to her. Even while juggling a double major and a minor, along with being a member of a sorority and acting as a research assistant for two labs on campus, she somehow manages to find time to enjoy herself and relax. Her bright personality shines, even through the FaceTime screen.
This summer, Warner Bros. Discovery went on a cost–cutting spree, removing films and shows from its streaming service, HBO Max, and permanently shelving a number of upcoming projects. One of these projects was DC Films’ Batgirl, a $90 million film in post–production that was set to be a part of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Originally scheduled to be released on HBO Max in December 2022, Batgirl was shelved to serve as a tax write–off for Warner Bros., according to Variety. DC Films’ handling of Batgirl and its cancellation is one of many problems the studio faces in the upcoming months, as its future slate of films remains uncertain.
Stuck in the monotonous limbo between her Spring 2022 graduation and her Fall 2022 post–baccalaureate program, Natasa Rohacs (C ‘22) was profoundly bored. There was not much to do in Philadelphia after her classmates had scattered to take on their post–grad commitments. “There was one day when I was just like, ‘I don't have a hobby right now. I need a hobby,’” Natasa says.
Every year when it started to get cold, my grandma and I would set up shop in the kitchen and start our annual Christmas Eve ritual: making kolaczki.
The first time I cried at my job as a front–of–house hostess, I was already four months in.
Going to college in Philly, we're so often bombarded—on social media and IRL—with seemingly endless options for how to spend our free time. So I’m delighted to announce that Street has done the hard part for you: We’ve rounded up what we think are the can’t–miss events for the month in one convenient place. If I’ve done my job right, there’ll be something in here for every one of our readers, no matter what you like to do with your weekends.
Some of the most scrumptious food porn can be found on the big screen—in everything from mob flicks to rom coms to animated movies. But food scenes aren't just there to get the audience's mouth watering. Rather, the meals depicted on screen can represent bigger concepts and themes that drive the plot and reveal characters' true colors. Here are some of Street's all–time favorites:
Rina Sawayama’s career is all about defying odds. Sawayama, a Japanese immigrant, tried to break through the British music scene with her debut single “Sleeping in Waking” in 2013. She went under the stage name “Rina” for quite a few years, calling her last name “an inconvenience,” up to her debut self–titled EP, RINA, in 2017.
Monkeypox’s global outbreak right on the heels of COVID–19 has been a recent cause of concern. Although the disease is not nearly as new or as unknown as the coronavirus was, it seems to have rapidly transmitted itself across the globe, leading the United States to declare a public health emergency early last month. Philadelphia in particular seems to be a hotspot, with almost 450 cases in the city as of last week. Considering the limited amount of testing available, these numbers are most likely higher overall.
From instant noodles to microwavable mac and cheese, the so–called “struggle meal” is a hallmark of many a Penn student’s diet. Often juggling a never–ending stream of problem sets, SABSing obligations, and late–night Van Pelt study sessions, no one can blame the average teen or twentysomething for reaching for a ready–made option rather than breaking out the recipe book. And for the 5,500 or so undergraduates who call the College Houses their home, worn–down appliances and minimal storage space make cooking a meal from scratch all the more arduous.
