Top Ten Reasons to Live This Week
By - The Papyrus Staff
1.) New Music Sunday on 105.7 the Point
Taking a well deserved break from playing Sick Puppies, Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin, Les Aaron gives listeners a breath of fresh music from all over the world from 7p.m. to 8p.m. every Sunday. From the most diverse and unexpected to the just plain good, Aaron presents the best sixty minutes of music radio in town.
2.) Harold and Maude
I just discovered this 1971 film in one of my Communication classes. It’s about a 17 year old boy falling in love with a 79 year old lady renegade. The two embark on off-the-wall adventures before her 80th birthday. Cat Stevens did the soundtrack to the movie which features the song from the iGoogle super phone commercial “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out”.
3.) Auto-Tune the News
Interviewers, sportscasters, and vice presidents alike break into song to report important news in auto-tuned form. The Gregory Brothers take our favorites in politics, media and entertainment like Newt, Biden, Katie Couric and of course T-Pain to smash them together into three minute webisodes.
4.) My Robot Friend
Hailing from New York, NY the eccentric Robot Friend spits out the sweetest robot tunes! The most recently released track “Waiting” features Alison Moyet, an English pop-singer formally from the band Yazoo. “23 Minutes in Brussels” and “Robot Love” are two of the best songs from his album Soft-Core available on www.myrobotfriend.com
5.) Jon Brownhill
The 2007 Greenville College alum is in town for two weeks starting yesterday!
6.) Meteor Showers
The last meteor shower took place Tuesday night and it was pretty sweet.
7.) Robert Pattinson School
The original R.Pattz is a language, science and mathematics college in England. To be accepted into this prestigious online school you need to be an enthusiastic, lively and versatile Mathematician to join the strong team, delivering courses across all key stages, including the opportunity of Further Mathematics at Advanced Level.
8.) Josh Brolin
No, not the actor! Former members of Mauled by Bears and The Doctor and The Devils have a new killer project. Check out myspace.com/joshbrolinrules to hear songs such as “Billy Mayzhem” and “Where are You Going? pt. 2”.
9.) David Bazaan at the Highdive
Sunday in Champaign, David Bazaan will be playing at The Highdive venue. The show is only $10 for a sure-to-be good night of jams.
