To my most loyal fans, after 7 years of running DT, I've now got a bigger and better Penn alumni entertainment site I've been working on for a while and it's ready for you to play with:

Penn alumni can get the latest entertainment news and now create profiles, connect with other alumni, and add stories into their profile!

Get started by:

1) Visiting

2) Checking out the new way you can submit stories directly to the site!

3) Signing up on our Penntertainment social media channels:

Thank to Jay Matsueda (W'95), Victoria Polubinska (W'12) and TJ Trapp (C'99) with helping to develop!

And thank all of you readers for all your support as I continue to strengthen and connect our Penntertainment community!

Finally, stay tuned to DT as we will be taking the site in a slightly different direction!

UPenn and MurphsA couple of years ago we went around an asked alumni from the 90s what they thought was in a Skylab from Murphy's Tavern ("Murph's").

While we got many funny responses on video, I just got a response from Jim Cleary, a member of the Murphy's Tavern Alumni facebook group telling me that a bartender who made Skylabs has now revealed the secret.

After the jump, get the answer!

Buzzfeed just released an article about the 19 Signs You Went to Penn.

Not all the signs listed in the article hold true for alumni who may have attended Penn let's say over 15 years ago, but my favorites of course center around this, this and this.

One sign not on the list that applied to a generation of Penn alumni centered around seeing a particular individual on campus "in Church".

What other signs would you add to that buzzfeed article? Comment below!

UPenn and Vice President Joe Biden and Commencement

Today was the 257th Commencement and honorary speaker Vice President Joe Biden had lots of advice for the new graduates.

Some more fun highlights from his speech:
  • apparently Joe's son Beau went to Penn (C'91, Lightweight Football) and his granddaughter Naomi is a student there now.
  • On a more comical note, in his speech, Vice President Biden mentioned that The Washington Post said no man has entered the office of Vice President with fewer assets than Joe Biden.
...After the jump, watch the entire speech and find out why (minute 1:33).  : )

For a while, this form of expression was pretty popular all over Penn.

It's finals season now and Penn students are getting creative again.

In an unsuspecting study lounge at the University of Pennsylvania, two star-crossed studiers need someone to watch their stuff and they interrupt entertain all those around them.

After the jump, watch the video!

UPenn and Conrad BainEarlier this week we lost the beloved actor Conrad Bain, aka Mr. Drummond from "Diff'rent Strokes".

Some Penn alumni encouraged me to post Penn Six's popular song "Conrad Bain" from their 1993 album "Jacket Off" album however I couldn't find it anywhere online.

After chatting with a Penn Six alum friend, I was able to locate the song ...and after the jump you can now listen to it!
