In Mid-September Austin Hall '10 went where few have gone before: the Ellen Show. Personally invited by comedian host Ellen DeGeneres, he performed his YouTube hit (with nearly 4 million views), Daft Hands.
Daft Hands is a remarkable work starring Hall's hands gyrating to the song Harder Better Faster Stronger by electronic group Daft Punk. (You may have heard this song sampled in Kanye West's summer hit Stronger.) Hall's smooth moves have spawned hundreds of copycat videos--most notably, one featuring a hapless dog with puppet-strings attached to paws.
Watch the Shout interview with Austin after the jump.

The KRLX Record Library is a small place with a big heart. Nestled in the basement of Sayles Hill, it occupies roughly the same amount of space as an Evans quint, and serves as home for thousands of (often promotional) LPs and CDs that the station has accrued over the years.

If only The Cave's walls could talk. Heralded as the oldest college-owned and operated club in the nation, The Cave has served over the decades as a lounging spot, game room, pub, storeroom and coffeehouse. In its current incarnation, it regularly hosts performances by Carleton bands.
Shout staffer Dan Sugarman '09 captured some of the action on video on Friday, January 29 during a performance by Aaron Kaufman '09:
