Did you catch that laundry room rave? Check out our interview with its creators, #Hypemerchants

#Hype is #Hype-ing. Spec's very own Opinion/Spectrum Deputy Matteo Leibowitz leads a parallel life as a hypemerchant DJ. This morning, Bwog posted about a laundry room rave, hosted by the merchants.

We at Spectrum had the same reaction as most commenters on the bwog article: why. We then decided to take advantage of our connections to one of the hypemerchants, and we did some Q&A for all of your enjoyment. Matteo was kind enough to bring another attendee of the rave, Sam Piland.

What is #hypemerchants? What kinds of hype will you be merchanting in the future? 

ML: Legendary DJ collective. Expect many hypes in the near future.
SP: The near, far, and now future.

How many merchants are you, and how does one go about becoming a merchant?

ML: There are three of us. You don't really become a merchant---you're born one.
SP: I was not born a merchant.

What about a laundry room was so appealing? The whirring of the machines? The smell of old detergent? 

ML: Probably the unbearably high temperatures and the small space...because that's a laundry room.
SP: Because that is good. I was already there actually before they showed up.

Did anybody awkwardly try and do their laundry mid-rave?

SP: 1:55
ML: 2:42

What exactly is that arm-flapping move called at 0:33?

SP: The Slay Tor
ML: The Young Isaac Slay Tor.

Did you indeed have “Kush, drank, and bars in [that] b*tch?” or is that just like a figure of speech?

SP: Shout out DJ stank boy Rashad bang bang.
ML: You'll have to come to the next young #Room# to find out.
SP: ...!

Do you have nicknames? 

SP: I have different nicknames depending on the medium: lil SMIZE for DJing, Brown Sam for rapping, Sam for every day events.
ML: Teo is my nickname. My DJ name is Half-Chub: I have no way of explaining why this is.

According to Bwog, Teo, you sent the video 17 times. Why 17 and not 16? Or 18?

ML: I only sent it once.
SP: I sent it 16 times cos thats a boss number.

The hype-merchants are DJs of few words. They both have shows on WBAR, check out Teo's here and Sam's here. We think this Q&A has only left us with more questions.

锘縎tudents must Christian Louboutin Shoes be formally admitted to the College of Graduate and Continuing Education (CGCE), in order to register for any graduate courses. The ordinary standard for admission to a graduate program is an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.75 (on a 4.0 scale). An applicant falling below this level may submit other evidence of his/her ability to complete successfully a graduate program, such as grades in other post baccalaureate courses, scores from examinations, or a record of progressively higher work responsibilities.

Today, it is not.Some thinkers welcome the eclipse of the book and the literary mind it fostered. In a Red Bottom Shoes recent address to a group of teachers, Mark Federman, an education researcher at the University of Toronto, argued that literacy, as we've traditionally understood it, "is now nothing but a quaint notion, an aesthetic form that is as irrelevant to the real questions and issues of pedagogy today as is recited poetry clearly not devoid of value, but equally no longer the structuring force of society." The time has come, he said, for teachers and students alike to abandon the "linear, hierarchical" world of the book and enter the Web's "world of ubiquitous connectivity and pervasive proximity" a world in which "the greatest skill" involves "discovering emergent meaning among contexts that are continually in Red Bottom Shoes flux."Clay Shirky, a digital media scholar at New York University, suggested in a 2008 blog post that we shouldn't waste our time mourning the death of deep reading it was overrated all along. "No one reads War and Peace," he wrote, singling out Tolstoy's epic as the quintessence of high literary achievement.Such proclamations seem a little too staged to take seriously.

D Link are also promoting their stock of WiFi Range Extenders, which have all been updated to 802.11ac editions. The DAP 1650 and DAP 1520 deliver AC1200 (N300 + AC867) and AC750 (N300 + AC433) wireless speeds respectively while in dual band connectivity, and the DAP 1650 offers four Gigabit Ethernet ports as well. These fit into normal wall sockets and offer one touch extender setup while the DAP 1520 weighs 104 grams (3.67 ounces)..

The reason is because Comcast, owner of Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia and, therefore, broadcaster of the vast majority of the above mentioned teams games, took advantage of a legal loophole to restrict distribution of that channel to only hardwire cable providers. This means no Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia via satellite. So, I, like many in this city, was forced to pick a hardwire cable provider to match up with my DISH service..
