The evocative music that runs through the comedic webseries is the effective result of SU student collaborations.

As bottles of Guinness and Bud Light are cleared away and a bright yellow piece of paper expands across the wooden table, fans of the web show, Howard Rights His Wrongs, can hear the theme song kick in as the episode begins.  What fans may not have known, is that the theme song along with the musical underscore, was created by Syracuse University students.

Commentary: An aspiring superstar breaks down his year in Syracuse.

This marks the second year I’ve made a music video recapping the events and adventures that occurred in the past 365 days.

This year wasn’t as exciting as my 2008, but there were still enough good times to sing ... I mean ... rap about.

Commentary: A holiday packed with fear, candy-binging and near-nakedness doesn't appeal to everyone.

I can only remember trick-or-treating once as a kid.

My family is fairly religious, so we didn't really do the whole dress-up-as-goblins-and-ask-for-candy thing. 

I do remember, however, many harvest parties, dressing up as Indians or Bible characters or vegetables. 

I was broccoli. 

As I have never really been a big celebrator of Halloween, I've often wondered what people enjoy so much about it.

Find out why Joe never truly understands why people think Halloween is so awesome.

What's the big deal about Halloween? That's the question on Joe Blum's lips. Blum isn't a fan of the scary, candy-filled holiday. In fact, he'd rather eat a stick of butter. Watch his video to get turned on by pumpkins and scared by fun-sized Snickers bars. See for yourself if the holiday deserves all the hype.
