Music for studying: Daft Punk is BACK

Sweet mother of all that is groovy and chill.

If you thought the naked donut runners were the panacea to all finals-related woes, wait until you hear Daft Punk’s new album which is NOW STREAMING FOR FREE. To access it, you have to open iTunes, go to Daft Punk’s artist page, and click the play button next to “Listen Now” on the left side (pictured above). Random Access Memories beautifully showcases Daft Punk’s inimitable synthy essence. Every song is funky as hell (and basically sex incarnate). While you shouldn’t really expect anything of the likes of “One More Time,” your fondest freshman dorm-party jam, you will be pleasantly surprised by how refreshingly sophisticated this album is as a whole. It is a shining star in today’s EDM scene. And don’t even get me started on the collabs. Julian Casablancas is featured in “Instant Crush” and boy, did it get hot in here quickly. Also, Pharrell Williams makes “Get Lucky” the perfect dance party jam for those lonely paper-writing nights in your dorm/SciLi stacks.

P.S. Wait until you hear the ending track. Screw Kabob and Curry in the Blue Room because this is what real happiness feels like.

P.P.S. Oh, and if you’re one of those who thinks Daft Punk is totes overrated and Skrillex is, like, definitely better… you better check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Happy National Pancake Day!

Today is National Pancake Day at the esteemed International House of Pancakes. Since 2006, IHOP has been celebrating this joyous American holiday to raise money for local charities. All you have to do is show up to feast on your one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes (always read the fine print, guys — it’s not a buffet). There is a suggested donation for the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. So if you’re planning on having your cheat day this week, it might as well be today. Go ahead, treat yo’ self.
