Motion City Soundtrack – @!#?@!

Dear SPA,

Thank you for bringing good music to the HUB for once. After Pitbull, I was skeptical about your music taste. Selling out Motion City Soundtrack in a couple of hours helped your status tremendously.

Last night was phenomenal. Set Your Goals really psyched up the crowd. The range the vocalists had was surprising, but enjoyable. At one point in time, however, I thought a girl had come on stage to sing. I was wrong. It was one of the male vocalists. He really tricked me! They also told you that you were in their top five favorite shows! Congrats, guys! We can crowd surf and circle pit better than most places. Put that on your resume!

Now, I was skeptical when I listened to My Dinosaur Life (Motion City Soundtrack’s latest album) for the first time just after the Penn State concert had been announced. Something just wasn’t right. I said to myself, “I shall investigate.” I was worried Justin had blown out his vocals. He, in fact, did not. I suppose I just dislike most of the new album. However, they did play “@!#?@!,” which happens to be the one song I dig on My Dinosaur Life. Also, when they played “Let’s Get Fucked Up and Die,” I peed myself a little bit.

Oh, SPA, how I adore you when you bring good musicians into my life. Thank you so much.

I hope all is well, and everyone had as much fun as I did at the show.

Sincerely yours,
Melanie

College vs. The Real World

Leaving Penn State was tough. I made so many memories in Happy Valley that it was a difficult transition to go through. Though I lived up all four years I spent at PSU, I can’t help but occasionally think, “Why did I ever leave?” I thought I’d reflect on my current life and college life and give some advice to those of you who still have time at PSU.
