Be the M.O.O.D. Cover Girl!

Well ladies, it's that time again to show off your sexiness. M.O.O.D. Magazine is looking for a dead sexy model like you for the front cover of its next issue.

So give it a whirl! Just e-mail Senior Fashion Market Editor Mairys Joaquin - [email protected] - with your photo (I heard the provocative ones make the top of the pile) and your resume (as goes with the intelligent ones) no later than 5 p.m. on March 19.

Mairys Joaquin was also the President of the Panhellenic Council (PHC) at Penn State, so that's pretty neat.

Flogging Molly Thinks State Patty’s Is Dumb

Last night Flogging Molly, with help from opener Scythian, showed Penn State the true meaning of St. Patrick's Day: being Irish, drunk, and pissed-off.

Things got off to a late start, after an overtime set-up, but Scythian quickly got the crowd dancing. Their set, while short, was solid, mixing celtic rock, creole, and an inventive medley of rap covers. The highlight may have been hearing Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" played on accordion. This was not the band's first show at Penn State, and I hope it's not their last. It'd be great to hear them play a longer set.

The show really got underway once Flogging Molly took the stage. Read on for more details and lots of pictures!

Penn State Becomes a Zombie Nation

Bang! You're dead! We knew it as cops and robbers as kids, but since we're all adults now, let's upgrade to something a bit more interesting. The Penn State Urban Gaming Club will be starting up its Humans vs. Zombies game, which it does every semester, on March 22 (If you don't remember, these were the ones running around early in the fall with Nerf guns and other assorted weapons).

Spring is supposedly coming, although I have yet to see any evidence of that. But Humans vs. Zombies promises to be a fun way to blow off steam once the risk of frostbite lessens somewhat.

The Adventures of Indiana Jones…Kind Of

Whenever I watch any of the Indiana Jones movies, I can't help but think how cool it would be to live as this Harrison Ford character (excluding the last movie). I'd get to go on quests, have adventures, make discoveries. Apparently Jim L-G had the same idea and decided to set of on a journey of epic proportions. He made up his mind to find the oldest printed ampersand. At Penn State.

Last Call: UPUA Gets Stuff Done

With spring break and election season approaching quickly, the businesses conducted at last night's University Park Undergraduate Assembly meeting will be the basis for at least the next month of the assembly's governance.

The most major result of last night's meeting was the announcement of the new name for UPUA's spring concert. Wallypalooza no more, it will now be known as LAST CALL.

The assembly also debated options for repurposing the space currently occupied by the Corner Pocket and funding for the Spring Academic Council.

10 Questions with Caitlin Zankowski
