Russell Simmons
Over the years on DT, I posted about The Excelano Project, a captivating group at Penn that performs the Spoken Word.

Apparently, 4 members of this group have caught the attention of Russell Simmons and will be starring in Simmons' new HBO show "Brave New Voices" debuting this Sunday night at 11pm ET/PT.

Per the HBO site, the show is "one part Def Poetry Jam and two-parts documentary" which "features the finest young spoken word artists in the country".

Representing from Penn are Josh Bennett (C'10), Aysha El Shamayleh (C'10), Alysia Harris (C'10), and Chloe Wayne (C'10).

If you recall, last year I named Alysia Harris' performance of "What's in a Soldier", the "#1 Penn Video That Will Give You the Chills".

Best of luck to Team Philadelphia!


Watch out for them on Sundays at 11 pm ET/PT on HBO!

Some Hollywood bits and pieces from our Alumni this week:

  • New sci-fi film being produced.
  • New reality TV show debuting in May.
  • New music featured on a TV show.
  • New TV guest appearances on 2 popular shows (one tonight!).

Dig into the details HERE.



Reality honcho Mark Cronin (ENG'86), debuts his next VH1 reality show, "New York Goes to Work"

More details here
My past posts about Mark and all his reality shows here




Todd Lieberman (C'95) will produce the film (based on the book) Grandma's Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast. Per Variety, "The story revolves around a boy who goes to visit his hippie grandmother for the first time and discovers that her inn caters to vacationing aliens, a secret that she has been able to keep from her small town."


My past posts about Todd and his films here




Actor Roy Vongtama (C'96) will appear on tonight's "Dollhouse" (April 3) at 9 pm (playing a yoga instructor)!

Roy will also be recurring on "Days of Our Lives" starting April 21st and 22nd on NBC at 1pm as Doctor Richman! As you may recall from my earlier posts, Roy is actually a doctor in real life. How great is that!


My past posts about Roy here






Matt Kap's (C'97) band's (The Moving Picture Show) song "The Boy Who Lives Backwards" was featured this season in minute 10 of "The Real World: Brooklyn" episode above.

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."
Check out Matt's performance at our very own Pennfest 2007:

UPenn

Matt Capeletti (W'12)Diana Kattan (W'12) are about to present students around the world with a way to get help with their studies ..for free.

But they need your help.

Matt and Diana are semifinalists with the Dell Social Innovation Competition and are seeking support for their website http://www.tutorchatlive.org.

Per Matt and Diana,
"As high school students, we realized the struggle that many face in getting help and understanding material. The use of a tutor can be a very valuable resource but they are often very expensive and many therefore cannot afford one. We decided to create a solution to this social problem by creating TutorChatLive.org, an easily accessible FREE online tutoring resource where any student around the world can log on and receive free tutoring through our live chat software."
Anyone can register and vote to support Matt and Diana's idea HERE.

Matt explains that at present, they do not have tutors available on their site because they are working on updating it and securing necessary funding to properly launch the project. Their main focus now is spreading the word about supporting their project with the Dell Social Innovation Competition.

Regardless of winning, they plan on launching the site in September 2009.

April Fools Day!

Kind of.

Apparently Computertan.com, was set up (not by Penn) to promote the work of a skin cancer charity in the UK.

See what happens when you click on Computertan.com and opt for the "free five minute trial"! (warning there are some graphic images here).

While this post is an April fools joke, there actually is a clever message on this site warning us against dangerous UV Exposure.

Back in October, I posted about how you could enter the Wharton Business Plan Competition.  

Now almost 6 months later, the video above features six of the 25 Wharton Business Plan Competition Semi-Finalists. They include a
  • robotic toy and online community for kids and young adults
  • an apparel business leveraging the growth of "kite-sailing"
  • a wound diagnostic concept whose team includes a former Wharton BPC semi-finalist. 
In the video above, learn more about some of these inventions, what motivated the teams to create their products, and what types of potential they see in the marketplace.

UPennIt's student election season at UPenn and my facebook feed is loaded with lots of "Vote [insert name] for [insert position]!" tweets.

As I mentioned in my posts from last year, some of the more proactive candidates are really getting creative with how they are promoting themselves.  It is no longer enough to just canvas the campus and the kiosks with flyers.

It's now all about facebook election posts, groups and videos!

Check out 2 informative, creative and humorous campaign videos I've seen so far from Matt Amalfitano (C'11) for College Rep and Mo Shahin (C'11) for Treasurer.




More info and "more standard" videos from all the candidates on the DP site HERE
