#CUSpectrum Instagram contest has begun!

Take a sweet photo of the Steps that looks a little bit different than the thousand that have been posted earlier that day? Find something funny late at night in Butler (no photos of people in the stacks please)? Capture an artsy angle of your drink at 1020 this weekend that probes into gender issues and class politics? When you upload it to Instagram, put #CUSpectrum in the caption and you’ll be entered into our contest.

Your photo will be posted to our Facebook page and if you get in the top five number of likes, we’ll feature your photo in a post on Spectrum, along with a quick interview with you. Get the most likes and your photo will be our cover photo until we find a cat photo that is funnier.

You’ve got until next Friday, May 3, to submit—so get hashtagging!

The party of the month? No, the party of the year

In this week’s issue of The Eye, we interviewed Aaron Carter—that’s right, the pop star of our youth who threw the best parties, beat Shaq, and knew that special girl who came from Spain. Aaron, judging by the interview, has grown into a wise man of few words. However, behind his reticence lies a wild life ready for Instagramming.

And don’t worry: he still parties.

Aww, he never gave up on her. More »

For the most part, we do a pretty good job blending in but, if you look closely enough, there are several telltale signs that make the Second Semester Senior—that odd, temperamental species—easily identifiable.

First, there are all of the feelings, overflowing at every opportunity, getting all over everything. (GIF after the jump)

This is your life

There comes a time when one must acknowledge a phenomenon–like when news sites decided to stop trying and just use Twitter, or when you finally gave in in 5th grade and made a MySpace. For the iPhone app Instagram, it’s officially its day in the sun. It is, to iPhone owners, what the daguerreotype was to everyone in the late 1800s because it brings photography to the masses. But that’s not always really a good thing. If you look at the pictures trending on Instagram, most are decent, but some are just a little bit ridiculous (a few minutes ago, a picture of someone holding an egg in their hand over grass was trending). So in that spirit, some editors at The Eye sent in a few of their mundane Instagram shots for your viewing pleasure.
