Taylor Houghton '17

By Aubrey Stoddard
October 27, 2014 - 9:00am

I don't think I've ever met a guy as well-mannered, genuinely sweet, or kind-hearted as Taylor Houghton. He is one of the most gentlemanly and fun-to-be-with people I've met here at Harvard. Ladies, if you're looking for a chance to get with this hunk, I'll give you one tip--be an Arabian princess and own a tiger named Raja. Or maybe just tell him you love the movie Aladdin. Read more below to learn about this handsome hunk! House: Dunster Year: Sophomore Concentration: Psychology Hometown: New York City  READ MORE

Sweet N' Nasty

Because Halloween parties are the best times to imbibe on food/drink of all kinds while wearing minimal clothing and/or strange, horrifying masks. And because it’s an experience that every college student should have, you might as well experience it in Adams, which has the pros of possessing a location close to literally everything and having a deceptively majestic, well-refined exterior.  You won’t have to sacrifice the cramped, sweaty, loud-what-song-is-this music and bonding with strangers in strange, horrifying masks and/or minimal clothing, and you still get to leave looking classy.

Have your roommates and friends begun to disappear?  Have they taken up odd hours, those best described as nocturnal?  Do they no longer eat human food, but now have begun to survive solely on redbull and coffee?  If any of these sound familiar, run, hide and find a doctor because those people in your life have fallen victim to Harvard's personal version of Halloween!

Halloween: Bey's Day

By Aisha Bhoori
October 27, 2014 - 9:00am

1.      Beyoncé is #flawless queen of the world. 2.      She and her music run the world. 3.      Every man wishes he were Jay-Z to put a ring on it. These are presumably a priori facts, as central to our nation’s governance as any amendment or legal statute. A trailer to the fictional horror movie, The Beygency, both augmented this assumed cultural premise and solidified my Halloween costume. Hailed as the best Saturday Night Live (SNL) skit in history, The Beygency trailer depicts Andrew Garfield as a man audacious (foolish?) enough to critique Beyoncé. “She is so good,” he exclaims. “I’m not a huge fan of that of one ‘Drunk in Love’ song though.” READ MORE

An Open Letter to Taylor Swift

By Aubrey Stoddard
October 26, 2014 - 10:00pm

My dearest Taylor, I still remember the first song by you that I ever bought off of iTunes and downloaded onto my iPod Nano. It was “Place in This World,” and I danced around my room to your light-hearted, poppy crooning almost every day in seventh grade. “FINALLY,” I thought to myself, “Someone understands exactly how I feel!” READ MORE
