Penn State's favorite (and only) free music festival, Movin' On, is this weekend. With the concert moving up a week this year, and on a Saturday for the first time ever, organizers are expecting the event's largest crowd ever. With each Movin' On comes a new set of musical acts, and anything and everything that you may expect at a free music concert on a college campus. For the unexpected, we have decided to set up some prop bets for the concert.

If you want to try an outlet for the fear you face about graduation that isn't going to kill your liver, perhaps you can try listening to some über-depressing music. As Onward State's resident sad music guy, I've got your back.

As is the case in just about any election, from national to student government, there are bound to be a few interesting write-in votes once the ballots are tallied. In last week’s UPUA election, which officially elected Penn State’s Ninth Assembly of undergraduate representatives, plenty of amusing write-in votes were, well, written in.

We all pretty much hate ANGEL. To put it kindly, ANGEL is a very bland and inconvenient course management system. All the same, we're also all pretty much stuck with it for the time being. Luckily, there's a silver lining. As it turns out, ANGEL offers some amazingly obscure themes in its personal settings. We went through them and picked out the very best, just for you. Pick your favorite and make using ANGEL a little bit more hilarious for yourself.
