We may have found E.T.’s home planet

Good morning, Columbia! Today’s forecast promises a high of 52, so the end of this resurrected winter is in sight. (Let’s put the “Frozen” jokes to rest, too. It’s April, and I’d like to use the phrase “let it go” freely.)

In Columbia news:

  • Expecting a dull Saturday? Explore one of Dan Garisto’s favorite weird museums in New York City.
  • In the wake of Bacchanal, Abby Mitchell considers disability access on campus.
  • If you’re itching to show your Lion pride, take a look at our teams’ weekend schedule.

Outside the bubble:

  • Astronomers report the discovery of an Earth-sized, habitable planet. The MTA tests my faith in humanity so often that I have no interest in finding life elsewhere.
  • “Mr. Vice President, what’s your favorite filter?” Joe Biden recently joined Instagram. Calling it now—today, Fox News will call the Obama administration an “Instasham.”
  • Novelist Gabriel García Márquez (“One Hundred Years of Solitude”) passed away yesterday at the age of 87.

#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!

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 »
