On Amphibian Reproduction

Overheard from Dr. Evelyn Hughes during a Frontiers of Science lecture today:

“Just because physicists don’t show videos of frogs doing it, that doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking about it.”

We’ll follow suit and spare you, but while we’re on the subject, we may as well introduce you fresh batch of College folk to what is almost a rite of passage. The following video was composed and performed for a Frontiers of Science homework assignment by Reni Lane CC’10 who also went on to sign with major label Custard/Universal Motown.

Columbia’s Musical Heartbreakers Strike Again

All’s a-twitter for Bacchanal next week and, on an only-vaguely-related note, Columbia musicians (or Columbia-hopeful musicians) are making waves all over the City.

First up: Anthony Da Costa, our charming folksinger prospy is returning tonight to the tiny exposed-brick room that loves him.  The Postcrypt coffeehouse, that is.  Da Costa’s website recommends “coming early and getting a good seat cause they go pretty fast!”  Adorable exclamation point, no?  Aw.  In addition, Da Costa writes that “The Postcrypt,” as he calls it, is “one of my favorite places to play, period…totally chill, unplugged, great atmosphere, intimate concert!”  He’s supposed to start at 10:30, but you heard the man:  go early.

Second on the Bwog musical beat, Reni Lane, CC ’10 (you may have heard her on The L-Word), recently popped up in fashiony-type blog Refinery 29.  Lane attended the Paper Magazine Beautiful People Party last Thursday, and a blogger hung out with her, then mentioned it on those wonderful things, the internets.  Fantastic!

Reni Lane Signs With Major Label, Debuts on “The L-Word”

A tipster/fan reminds us that campus artist Reni Lane CC ’10 has not only signed with major label Custard/Universal Motown (joining James Blunt, among others), but also will have her song “Place for Us” on tonight’s episode of Showtime’s “The L Word.” You can hear the song right now on her Myspace page. Sure, Showtime isn’t on Columbia’s cable system, but Bwog has no doubt our readers know how to get their hands on TV shows.

“Place for Us” is also the first song from her first major label album, which will be released this spring. And remember, she made Frontiers of Science catchy.
