Last month I wrote about a fantastic new Penn sponsored entertainment internship program called RealArts. This program awards six paid ($2500!) summer internships - at MTV Networks, Rolling Stone magazine, Brooklyn Films, Shore Fire Media, Grand Central Publishing (former Warner Books), and Women Make Movies.

Today Penn announced the winners of this internship program!

Today, Penn President Amy Gutmann introduced President Bill Clinton at the “Kerner Plus 40” Symposium in Irvine Auditorium.



Per Penn's press release:

"Sponsored by Penn’s Center for Africana Studies and Annenberg School for Communication and by the Institute for Advanced Journalism Studies at North Carolina A&T University, “Kerner Plus 40” marks the 40th anniversary of the 1968 report issued by the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, known as the Kerner Commission. The Commission was formed to assess the causes of race riots that occurred in U.S. cities during the 1960s. The Commission’s most chilling words came in its assessment that the nation was 'moving toward two societies, one black, one white -- separate and unequal.'"

I was just checking Google's new "Street View" option for Penn's Spruce Street and was dismayed to see this!








Do you see the empty lot next to Allegros pizza? (Click on the image above to get a better view.)

That lot used to be where (my fraternity) AEPi (3940 Spruce Street) once resided.

Apparently, a cracked water pipe caused so much destruction that the whole house had to be knocked down! I hear that the fraternity is now on Walnut Street (near 40th). (current AEPi guys, feel free to comment below)

To take a brief trip down memory lane, check out my 1993 pictures below of the AEPi house during our annual "Hollywood" party. Every year we'd plaster the quad with flyers, rent lights out front and canvas the entire first floor of the house with B-rated movie posters we'd get from that video place on Locust (whose name I'm forgetting). You'll also note the "Hollywood" marquee and ticket booth.

Nothing like "themed" fraternity parties.

Tara in above photo taken while on assignment for Glamour in Chad.

Over the past year, I've covered many stories about Penn actors, filmmakers, and musicians and now it's time to showcase another talented Penn international photographer whose beautiful work has appeared in many worldwide publications.

Based in the Middle East, Tara Todras-Whitehill (C'00, Eng'00, Stimulus Children's Theater) is a photographer who lived in Cairo for the past 2 1/2 years and just recently got a job with the Associated Press in Jerusalem where she'll be covering Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. Her journey from undergrad to professional world photographer is quite an interesting one (she's a quite the jetsetter!). Check out all the publications her photos have appeared in!

Tara has posted some really stunning photos on DT that you should take a look at...

Click here to see these photos Tara took for Glamour Magazine and New York Times Travel ...including portraits of Benazir Bhutto in her home in Dubai plus more!

In addition to my weekly Tuesday Tips and Now and Then Thursday series, I want to now introduce yet another series sure to be popular quickly: Website Wednesdays. (yes another illiteration associated with a day of the week). This series will cover the many, many websites developed by our undergrads and alumni.

As you've noticed on this site, I do a lot of posts having to do with music. ...So for my first post of this new series, I want to share Showmethesetlist.com, a start-up site from Corey Lorinsky (W'07, Sigma Alpha Mu, Wharton Venture Initiation Program) and Daril Vilhena (C'09).

Per Corey, this site "enables users to catalog the music concert experience like never before. The web site allows users to create individual pages for each live show. Concert-goers post song setlists, discuss and review performances, as well as create online galleries full of photos, videos, scanned ticket stubs, gig posters, actual setlists and more. It's like creating a virtual scrapbook page for each show, except much cooler."

Check out an example of a full entry here

Ananda Sen (C'98 and Pennfest 2007 musician) just debuted a song about the direction of the recording industry ...and the irony of a number one recording artist's album generating the lowest record sales. With the ability for artists like Ananda to use the internet to distribute their music, it will be interesting to see what the music industry will do to compete... (Speaking of which, just today I read that blogger Perez Hilton is in talks with Warner Bros. Records to become a talent agent for them! Good for Perez! Maybe Warner Bros. will make me an offer as well? : ) )

Listen to Ananda's song below:


Click here to check out the lyrics...+/-


"Do It Without You"
by Ananda Sen, Aaron Suplizio, Chee Malabar, Yash Dhillon and Mike Zank

*Sixty thousand, we've hit the peak
How low we go, in just one week
Long time coming but you couldn't see
What you controlled would again be free

We are rising to our feet
Above the ground now, not underneath
We have all that we'll ever need
So I throw my wrench into your machine

And I'll do it without you

Signed on, years gone, you ate your young
Made them churn out the same old song
Music, a widget, mass-produced
Collusive, a privilege that you abused

And I'll do it without you

*Per Ananda, "The "sixty thousand" in the first line is a reference to Alicia Keys having the #1 album a few weeks ago, but selling only 60,0000 albums that week, which is the second lowest #1 album-of-the-week since the start of Soundscan in 1992. The ship is sinking fast."

Okay this is very funny and very not safe for work.

Elizabeth Banks (C'96) has now officially done every medium. She's done films, TV, and print and now she's part of the youtube viral video phenomenon.

Over the past few months, you may recall the viral videos that have been going around the web from a joke on the Jimmy Kimmel Show about Sarah Silverman "blank"-ing" Matt Damon. And then Jimmy Kimmel's celebrity-filled response.

Now (probably from the set of Kevin Smith's new comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno) Liz has done a, um, similar one with Seth Rogen about what it takes to get ahead in Hollywood.

Click here to watch this not-safe-for-work-video!

Penn writers Phyllis Zimbler Miller (WG'80), Eric Barker (C'94), Hadley Davis (C'93), Josh Heald (C'00)

In this week's Tuesday Tips series, I have enlisted the help of my Penn alumni writer friends out here in Los Angeles to offer advice to the Penn undergrad or alum who has decided to move out to Los Angeles to pursue a writing career.

Between the four of them (Phyllis Zimbler Miller (WG'80), Eric Barker (C'94), Hadley Davis (C'93), and Josh Heald (C'00)), they have written for books, TV and Film and have offered up some great advice to all of you including answers to the following questions:

-What classes should you take?
-Writing programs to use?
-Registering your work
-Events for networking
-Groups to join?
-Best place in LA to write?
-Any other advice?

I too have chimed in based on my years being a writer in Los Angeles and all the lessons I have learned.

Click here to find out what our alumni writer panel has to say and/or add your own advice!

A few weeks ago, I showcased animator Brendan Marnell's (C'05) "The Lift", an animated short based on the theme of "leaving college".

Today I wanted to share Ephemera, another great film Brendan did during his senior year at Penn.

Per Brendan, "It [Ephemera] was inspired by an experience 'discovering' a series of rooms built into the support structure of South Street Bridge. The walls were covered with layer upon layer of really great graffiti, and I could see people had been using it as a hangout for a long time. I tried to return to the spot a couple weeks later, but the entrance had been cemented shut."

So I started watching the Oscar red carpet show on E! in real time ...so there's no padding on my TiVo to fast forward through the commercials. (which is fine because it allows me to watch and blog at the same time)

As I sit here watching, I just spotted a John Legend (C'99) commercial which I think may be new. The above image is from John's Baileys (alcohol) commercial encouraging viewers to act responsible before they drink.

Speaking of the Oscars and Penn alumni, just in case you never saw this post, click here to check out Gabriel Mann's (C'95) very cool appearance on last year's Oscars!

Several months ago, I reported about a "Philly Fight Night". We're talking real boxing here.

Well, there's been another Fight Night recently.

Per youtube's mccopock1, "In a stunning victory for the Wharton Community, Itai Lemberger knocked out his Penn Law opponent at 2008 Philly Fight Night. Itai's match was the main event for the night, but it didn't last long; the poor sap from Penn Law was laid on his back 30 seconds into the first round of the fight."
