Street U.: What kind of music do you like? Joe Francis: Whatever sets the mood. Street U.: If you could have a superpower for a day, what would it be? JF: What, have you not heard about my magic fingers? Street U.: What’s your favorite word? JF: Lift-your-shirt.

Game Day Fashion

Football games here at Street U. are more than just a chance to show your undying support for those hunky men out on the field.

Spine-Crunchingly Good

Next time you’re at Van Pelt, strolling through the fifth floor stacks on your way to isolation, take a look at the books that line the shelves.

Ego of the Week: The Men of BMOC

The foxy men of Alpha Chi Omega’s Big Man on Campus pageant love themselves. And their pelvic thrusts.

Majorly Easy

A real live Ivy League-endorsed major sounded so glamorous. I woke up with a rare jolt of energy a few Wednesday mornings ago and blow-dried my hair for the first time in a while.

Ego of the Week: Temitope Maiyegun

Temitope Maiyegun has lived everywhere from Nigeria to Vienna. Now Philly-local, she talks Kanye and candy. Street: There is a Facebook group entitled “The REAL Temi Maiyegun.” Are you in fact the real Temi? Temitope Maiyegun: If there’s a fake Temi, let me know!

The Bubble of Brown-town

Welcome to Brown-town: the homebase of Penn's South Asian population. The brown — pretty evident. The town?

Word on the Street: As the election cools down, where's the new heat?

Now that the presidential campaign — replete with spam, robocalls and SNL skits — has begun to recede into the background, two words come to mind: now what?

Ego of the Week: Josh Acheatel and Jeff Fronek

They dress each other, they feed each other and heck, they even cuddle. BFFs and men-about-town Josh Acheatel and Jeff Fronek give Bert and Ernie a run for their money. Street: How long have you boys been friends? Jeff and Josh: Since sixth grade. Street: What were your first impressions of each other? Josh: Within less than a year of knowing Jeff, I decided to make him an usher at my Bar Mitzvah.

Tide My Breath Away

Well, it’s finally Halloween and we all know what kind of weekend we’re in for — or, if you’re one of the lucky ones with late Thursday classes, what kind of weekend has already started.

For those of you living under a rock the size of Alaska, the presidential election is five days away.

Halloween Costumes Done Right

This year for Halloween, instead of being a Catholic schoolgirl or throwing on a Lakers jersey to be Kobe Bryant (or Ms. Walk of Shame) again, why not show everyone how culturally aware (read: pseudo-intellectual) you are?

Ego of the Week: Ben Alisuag

Street: What's the soundtrack to your life? Benjamin Alisuag: The soundtrack to my life is In Search Of… by N.E.R.D.

Taking Credit

It’s been relatively easy to bash Whartonites and their ilk over the past several weeks. “Look at those fat cats on Wall Street, with their $60 million severance packages,” everyone from the crazy guy next to the Button to The New York Times has sniffed.

by JULIE STEINBERG

Ego of the Week: Josh Bennett

Street: What’s the soundtrack to your life? Josh Bennett: The current soundtrack to my life is Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool. Socially critical, playful, lyrically complex — it’s essentially everything that I want people to say about my body of work when I’m gone. Street: Who’s the coolest person you’ve ever met? JB: The coolest person I’ve ever met would have to be [The Boondocks cartoonist] Aaron McGruder.

If iPod, Do You Pod?

Technology has fetishized miniaturization as of late — just compare Zach Morris’ shoebox-sized cell phone on Saved by the Bell to Derek Zoolander’s supersupersmall one.

Sex, casually

The other morning, when I woke up unsure of whether I was still drunk or just hungover, I found myself confronted by an important post-coital realization: I had screwed up (pun mildly intended). Before I go any further, understand that this is not that freshman-year-what-frat-house-am-I-in hungover regret.
