Remainders and reminders

Written by


You’re Going Places, Kid

Kudos to Davide Barillari, the creator of The Gates, the borderline salacious student-produced soap opera that we all love to hate (or hate to love). His opus is a finalist in ABC’s SoapU contest, the winner of which gets $20,000 to make a real soap opera. Make sure to vote on the website, too- as of now our homegrown bit of tawdry satire is trailing the leaders by several points- if only because NYU (naturally) has two popular entries. Also, watch the clip from the second episode and commend the actors on their ability to barely contain their laughter during the opening scene where some kid starts convulsing on a Carman dorm room floor after snorting too much coke. Brilliance.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Democrat

The CU Dems have launched a blog full of political commentary and news updates from the blue side of politics. It’s certainly thorough, but in our humble opinion, it needs a little sex appeal. We suggest pictorials of Edwards, Obama, Ted Kennedy, just the hotties. Remember it’s a blog, friends, try to say that word three times without smirking a little.

Young, Rich, and Totally Fucked Up

Many readers were (mildly) scandalized by the Eye’s report from the trenches of investment banking. (We’ll never say i-banking again, we promise.) Bwog can’t help but wonder who “Paul Owen” is, though, and half-hearted stalking attempts have proved futile. But, really, can you blame us for our fascination after all that business about jetting to Puerto Rico, $800 for Flashdancers, etc.? So, “P.O.”, We summon you to proclaim your identity. And, hey, if you ever need another drinking buddy, shoot us an email…

And Most Importantly…

Do you want us to lose? Do you want to see us suffer and crumple under the weight of defeat? You do? Oh, nevermind. Could you vote for us anyways over at PaperTrail? It’d be swell, and voting ends on the 23rd.

  1. Dear Paul Owen  

    If you are going to make gobs of money doing slightly sketchy things, that's fine. But just KEEP YOUR GODDAMNED MOUTH SHUT so liberals, or worse yet, fucking FED TAXMEN won't come after you.

    Did they pass you a brain when you were getting measured for your suit last May?

  2. kathleen  

    is it really you? from the heights??

  3. numanu  

    and i hear a 'clinton' in the room

  4. Hmmm  

    American Studies: making sociology look respectable.

  5. literary

    Paul Owen, for the curious, is a character in Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho. Very apropos, considering the content of the note.

    That article sincerely makes me want to cancel my interviews and go kill myself. Actually "kill myself" is a major exaggeration, but it is just one of the increasingly numerous items items that makes me wonder what the hell I was thinking when I tried to tell myself that maybe Ibanking isn't all that bad. I used to sincerely believe I would do something that would make a difference in the world and be fulfilling. Maybe I will not become an Ibanker.

    And I guess it's good to know that I am not supposed to call it Ibanking. I've been calling it Ibanking at every one of my interviews.

  7. Owen=Olsen  

    that level of arrogance only could come from the Specs own Jake Olsen

  8. Not to mention  

    The $145,000 is wrong. Nobody is guaranteed that. In a good year, an analyst can maybe pull that off, but it's not likely. Anyway, given this article as well as an earlier article in the Spectator concerning this same "Paul Owen," it's only a matter of time before the firm in question catches on to this guy and let's him go.

    paul owen is Justin Nunez
