Dan: Before we get started I just wanted to clear the air and say
that yes, we are all eligible bachelors.
So tell me about this princesses poster on the door.
Andy: We woke up one morning and it was just there.

"I've been in situations where you've gotta hand out and be active at protests
where people are actually organizing against you, so I mean this is a piece of
cake.... I mean, whatever, if someone doesn't take it... it's not a big deal."
"I'm not seeking their approval, so I mean, they're not rejecting me, they're just
showing their own ignorance and their own stubbornness.... You're at this
university--such a privilege to be at this university--either as a student or as a
professor, and if you're not being open-minded to other people's ideas, then it's
a shame that you're here because there are other people who could be doing
and enjoying this place a lot more than you as you're walking down and like,
being in your own world because you're better than everyone else."
"Keep your mind open.... These aren't freaks coming out of nowhere.... Most of
the stuff is all grounded in truth--it's the way you look at it.
Street realizes that it can seem daunting to be surrounded by such a plethora
of brilliant and inquisitive minds--from the brimming intellectual curiosity of
Wharton students and the singularly profound Penn social interactions that exist
as relief from deep thinking and subsequent introspective dilemmas.
The Mexican Post
104 Chestnut Street
After getting the once-over for failing to conform to the yuppie, monochrome,
slick standard of style at the last bar I went to, it was quite a relief to wear jeans
to Old City's Mexican Post and be allowed to have a seat without any resistance.
"I started DJ'ing freshman year, like 1999 for me, that spring.... I did the same
show that I do now, but it was just a little bit reduced, its isn't as big as it is now....
My show is The Storm [hip-hop, R&B, underground rap, dance hall, and reggae],
usually comes on Thursdays 8 to 10 [p.m.], but sometimes I go in the studio like
after hours and I'll go and, you know, make a little quiet storm, like I'll do R&B for
a little bit, just on the sneak tip."
"Sometimes we'll have guests in the studio..., like I'll put a beat on and they'll
freestyle to it and I remember a couple weeks ago we had somebody come in
and we had a freestyle, and we have Instant Messenger in the studio, so they
would tell us how the guy was doing and we had two people, and one guy was
real good and the other guy was OK, I guess, and the guy on Instant Messenger
was letting us know about that..."
"It's on channel 2, ResNet... and www.wqhs.org, we're working on it right now so
we're gonna try and get some better reception so people can hear it on the radio
on campus and off campus.... Watch out for us because we've been sleeping for
a long time and it's about time for us to wake up and take this campus over like
we're supposed to."

What music were you guys listening to when decorating?
Esther: Asian music actually.
Strolling along Locust Walk the other day, I came to an epiphany. This wasn't
just another one of my lame-ass "Whoops, I forgot to write my term paper" or
"Two girls at once... sure, why not?" epiphanies.
Further continuing our tradition of highlighting rampant stupidity wherever and
whenever it rears its stupid head, Street is casting its peripheral focus on Penn's
Social Planning and Events Committee.
