Matt Kap's (C'97) band's (The Moving Picture Show) song "The Boy Who Lives Backwards" is featured in the season premiere of MTV's Road Rules Challenge: The Island. It was played at the end of the show when the cast decided to vote off one of their own. Check your local listings for the show's reairing.

Listen to "The Boy Who Lives Backwards" here:



The story behind the song?   Per Matt:


"The Boy Who Lives Backwards" basically came out of a regret. I was going to take some summer classes at NYU and met a girl the first day in the dorm through a friend. She'd had a bad day and her friend wasn't around so I decided to try and cheer her up. We had a really incredible night but I was so shy at the time and thought she had a boyfriend so I didn't ask her out. Years later I thought of that while singing a melody and began thinking about regrets we have in life - the person we didn't kiss, the bully on the playground we didn't stand up to, the clever comebacks that we wished we'd said in an argument and that's what the song is about. It also really reminds me of New York City in the fall which is my favorite time of year."

upennHave you ever heard of an all female fantasy football league?

Jordan Zucker (C'97, Kappa Alpha Theta, captain of UPenn Equestrian team, Stimulus Children's Theater) has been running one for three years now and has just recently caught the attention of the morning news.  See her segment above.  (In the clip above, Jordan is actually video chatting with another Penn alum Jaime Herman (C'01) for her picks.)

Per Jordan, "We started out as all first timers and learned how to play together. Now we’re schooling the guys."



If you check out Jordan's site, you'll see that she does a weekly video/wrap up which includes:
  • Studs and Duds
  • Best Man Pile
  • Best Man Hug
  • Best Body Jump
Incidentally, Jordan is no stranger to TV.  A couple of years ago,  she was featured on close to 10 episodes of Scrubs playing the character of "Lisa" (click here to see her in action!)

Did you see JJ Abrams' new show Fringe last night?

If you did, you may have missed a quick shout out to Bad Robot (production company behind Fringe) exec Dave Baronoff (C'99, L'02, Mask and Wig, AEPi ). Watch the short clip above to check it out (minute 7:35)!

The show is really well done and the characters and story are well developed.  The reviews also are great...
upenn
The New York Times says:
"… as pilots go, this one is sensational, an artful, suspenseful mix of horror, science fiction, layered conspiracies and extended car chases. "Fringe" sets out to stretch the boundaries of conventional network series. …"

The Hollywood Reporter says:
"… What really makes "Fringe" so promising is that it is potentially reminiscent, in a small way, of the battle-of-the-sexes charm that once made "Moonlighting" the best hour of TV of its time. "

After I published this post,  Dr. Mark Milstein (C'97, Mask and Wig) notified me that he is quoted on the Popular Mechanics website regarding the scientific/medical accuracy of Fringe's Pilot episode.
