9 Reasons to Live This Week

According to Papyrus Editors.

1.) The Boat that Rocked soundtrack
The movie stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Bill Nighy and has been re-titled as Pirate Radio for American audiences. The soundtrack is two discs worth of music from the 1960’s including: The Turtles, The Kinks, The Who and David Bowie. It is only available on Amazon because the movie will not hit theaters here until late November.

2.) Calvin Klein’s USB Shades
Sunglasses that not only function to shield your eyes from the sun. They now carry your files! If you like to waste your paychecks on ridiculous accessories like the Papyrus Entertainment editor does then you will love these stylish frames with a USB drive built in. It costs $199 to try to look cool.

3.) Ponyo
The beautiful and cute new Japanese animation movie from the director of Spirited Away & Princess Mononoke. It’s about a goldfish that wants to become a human, but the film is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, The Little Mermaid. Voices in the cast include those of Noah Cyrus, Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin, Betty White, and Frankie Jonas.

4.) Discovery
One of the members from Vampire Weekend and one of the guys from Ra Ra Riot got together and formed Discovery. They do an ill cover of “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5. Find their music at

5.) Ctrl
Hilarious short episodes featuring Tony Hale (Arrested Development), a white collar stiff who one day spills ice tea on his computer keyboard, making function keys like Delete and Ctrl X (Cut) happen in real life scenarios. And it's available for free on iTunes and Hulu.

6.) Derek Webb’s Stockholm Syndrome
Stockholm Syndrome sees Webb abandon his acoustic guitar, and instead turns his well crafted songwriting to the synth keyboard. A brilliant album by one of the best musicians continually critiquing and challenging the church.

7.) Alton, IL
Why students should visit Alton, IL: Robert Varner is from there. It’s next to the Mississippi river, and houses the infamous Fast Eddies. There are great costume parties in ancient homes where you will be sure to spot a ghost. Bigfoot has also been sighted there and there are some excellent graveyards.

8.) Adventureland on DVD
The movie is set in a 1980’s run down theme park and comes complete with muscle cars, big hair and teenage angst. Adventureland stars Jesse Eisenberg from this fall’s new zombie movie Zombieland, along with Kristen Stewart.

9.) Montez
Because there are two of them.
