Fling Artists 2015 Are In YOUR HANDS, People!

Hear ye, hear ye! This year, SPEC is doing preventive damage control smartly asking our Fling artist opinions in advance of the announcement. While we're all about the annual collective bitchfest, we suggest everyone actually fill out this survey, so you know, maybe everyone will be happy (gasp!) with the choices! Or at least most people. Will be okay with it. It could happen. So make your opinion heard!

NOTE: SPEC's got a budget so, as they explain, don't waste your suggestion box with Bey, T-Swizzle or Yeezy. This also includes JT, Jay-Z, Katy, RiRi and comparably expensive icons. So while we all want Britney, pick 'em in our price range. It's a free campus, but we'll kindly note that it's time to shut down EDM after three (varyingly goodheadlining DJs in a row. Spread the genre wealth for the seniors!

Yo, our weekly Locust Flaikus are the bomb, but TRADITIONAL POETRY. CAN. GET. IT. Hell yeah, we're upping the ante and werkin' that A/A/B/B/A rhyming structure for your education and entertainment. Are they worthy of publication in a book of children's nursery rhymes? Probably.

Freshmen Strike Again By Making Quad Unlivable

Once upon a time Hill College House wasn't drowning and the Quad wasn't plagued by filthy animals. Dear Freshmen: this is the "Year Of Health," so making your hall (read: THE PLACE YOU LIVE) more disgusting than the BioPond isn't really what makes Amy happy. And you won't like Amy when she's angry

From pooping on the floor, to using a pie chart about Jews as lounge decorum, to leaving behind a plethora of body hair, it's safe to say Quad residents are lashing out at something. Did someone destroy your laundry or are you still harboring negative feelings about this?

Flyerer Of The Week: The Underground Shakespeare Company Presents Othello

Underground Shakespeare Company is redefining Shakespeare (hear us out)! Their newest production, Othello, is set in Vietnam War era, a time substantially more relevant than Venice in the 1500s. If the flyerers themselves are any indicator, this show is bound to be crazy. It might even get shut down by Penn police...

What are you guys flyering for?

We are part of the Underground Shakespeare Company and we have a show going on tonight and tomorrow at 8pm in the Rodin rooftop lounge. We're showing Othello and setting it in Vietnam.

It's All DownHill From Here

Hill residents prepare your arks because honey, that towel's not gonna do anything. As these pictures show, in less than 24 hours Hill will be totally flooded. No word yet as to where the water’s coming from–maybe some poor soul forgot how to do laundry, it's hard to say. Funny to think that only a few weeks ago house residents thought they’d stay  dry. Time to head for the hills….or better yet, anywhere else.

Birthday Tweets From The Real Amy Gutmann

Happy Birthday Amy G! Or should we say the Real A-Gut? Instead of wasting time waiting for people to wish her a happy birthday, our fine President proved once again that she is a strong, independent woman who doesn’t need a man to complete her by doing so herself. Classic Harvard!

Here’s a taste of what Amy had to say on this lovely holiday via her Twitter. Her tweets are coquettish, honest, and of course, socially and pop culturally relevant–we’d expect nothing less! Happy 65th girlfriend, you own this city.
