Dry Mouth on Thirsty Thursday

It may be the last Thirsty Thursday of the semester but with studying for finals looming over all of our heads, this Thursday may actually turn out dry.

Drinking on a weekday isn’t hard to validate when you’re a Penn State student. Toasted Tuesday may be frowned down upon, but Thirsty Thursday is close enough to the weekend that you can blow off some steam without feeling bad about yourself. Nursing a nasty hangover in your 9 a.m. class may seem demoralizing, but besides that, Thursday is just as legitimate of a party day as Friday or Saturday.

It would actually seem warranted after spending this week catching up on notes you’ve missed when the snooze button wouldn’t stop hitting itself. However, for many of us, it’s crunch time.

Drinking just won’t fit into the schedule of skimming neglected assigned readings and updating Facebook about how boring the library is. This doesn’t seem like the same kind of Thursday night atmosphere we’ve enjoyed for the previous 14 weeks of this semester.

I guess studying and stuff is what we’re in college for. You have to use that notebook for more than a coaster at sometime.

Since the ragers will be study sessions tonight, I want to keep the party alive in spirit. In honor of an amazing semester living it up at Penn State, here is a run-down of the best party videos filmed by local rappers this fall. I thought it could help with the withdrawal symptoms.

Chewi (@chewtunes) – Party Hard

You may not be going out tonight but for local Penn State rapper, Chewi, every day is a reason to “Party Hard.” In his single “Party Hard” off of his new release, “Rapper’s Digest,” the bro from HoCo slashes rhymes about living life under the influence and getting sloppy at the number one party school despite what Princeton Review says. His cool demeanor bleeds into his lines about puffin’ pine and chuggin’ a few. Chewi’s distinctly low tone rumbles over a commanding beat and the catchy chorus sings perfectly along forceful trumpet flares. “Party Hard” has the intensity of a fight song but the attitude of a late night smoke sesh. Chewi recently moved the party from the head phones to YouTube with a video for “Party Hard” where the professor of partying himself gives viewers a crash course in going hard Penn State style. This almost makes it okay for you to be procrastinating right  now. You’re learning something.

Crystal Seth (@crystal_set) – “Get Right”

Pittsburgh’s up-and-coming rap act, Crystal Seth, blends the free spirit of Mac Miller with “never grow up” lyricism of 90’s Blink-182. The beat on “Get Right” off of the release “Left on Freeport” is as uplifting as a brain rush of dopamine. The optimistic melody is accompanied by Crystal Seth’s feel good lines about the “young and trashed” making the most of their moments. Whether stuffing the Dutch or getting a little too drunk, “Get Right” preaches life is a party. This track is perfect for killing the bad vibes of finals week’s approaching buzz kill.

Greg Falatek (@FALATEK) – “Ivy League Anthem”

Ivy League lyricist, Greg Falatek, released a video for “Ivy League Anthem” early last month. The jumpy jam doesn’t only make you jealous you’re not crushing cans at a house party, the scenes of Falatek and his crew chilling beach side comes right as the unpredictable Penn State winter left us with a fresh layer of slush to walk to class in. If the sunny scenes of sipping Grey Goose on a roof aren’t enough, Falatek’s lines about a night of drinks on Ivy League’s tab will make you wish you were anywhere but face down in a text book.

Have fun being studious tonight. But if you’re saying screw it and celebrating Thirsty Thursday, add these tracks to your pre-game playlist. Are there any party videos I missed?
