Yesterday evening, Fox announced that it had given a put-pilot order to a sitcom called DeTour, from Psych creator Steve Franks. You may be wondering: what’s a put-pilot, and why should I care until this show actually gets a series order? Well, first off, a put-pilot is the kind most likely to reach your TV: a network must pay a hefty fee if they do not air the pilot. And secondly, you should care if you’re a music fan: Franks’ inspiration is the life of Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, specifically the singer’s 11 years of on-and-off study at Harvard, and Cuomo himself is directly involved with the show.

Rivers Cuomo’s Harvard Life Seems Ripe For TV

Deep cleaning my room and for some reason I have 30-year-old Harvard Magazines? This ad was found in the Sept-Oct 1980 issue. I don’t even know what cooking with a Harvard accent would entail, but it sounds hilarious.

#ITooAmHarvard is a project by Black students at Harvard to speak out about the racism that they experience in their daily lives as students. It will also be a play.

Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous. 

I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love.

Harvard Tours Yale: The Game 2013

climbingtothelight:

As you may or may not know, Yale and Harvard always have had a rivalry, and it’s particularly fierce before the Harvard/Yale football game.  This year, Harvard students went down to Yale, dressed as Yale undergrads, and give free tours to unsuspecting individuals - who somehow never figured out that these probably weren’t Yale students.

My favorite quotes from the video:

  • "Just a few basic ground rules here.  As you may know we are in a city here, in New Haven.  So be careful, if you’ve got a purse clutch your purse and if I hit the floor, you do the same."
  • "In many ways Yale is Harvard’s little, and perhaps less successful, sister."
  • "This is the Skull and Bones society behind me.  I am personally a member."
  • "Yale has a 6.8 percent acceptance rate.  If you’re here and meet the people here, maybe it seems like it’s a lot higher.  In US News and World Report, Harvard and Princeton are normally a pretty solid one and two.  Yale fluctuates somewhere between three and, uh, fifteen or so, depending on the year."
  • "The blue lights show you where the most serious crime happens."
  • After the guide goes “Hey how’s it going?” to a random student, he turns around and goes, “That’s my, that’s my roommate.”
