Evening Ephemera


Facebook f you

Bwog received several tips regarding the glorious Facebook Flyer displayed at right, which we are sure brought smiles to procrastinators throughout campus (and, perhaps, panic to a certain scarf thief). We wish the flyer’s anonymous poster good luck bundling up, although (s)he probably needs to cool off a little anyway.

Come now, Chris

Okay, Dean Colombo, we’ll take your enrolled student survey for the chance to win a $60 gift certificate to the bookstore (after all, we need some souvenirs to remember this place by beyond drunken photos and loan repayment reminders). But did it have to come from a generic template hosted on the MIT server? Bwog wonders what other schools might be soliciting this information from their students… (hint: one question mentions “secret societies” and “eating clubs”)

Seth Strikes Again

For those too lazy to read all of CCSC President Seth Flaxman’s latest, greatest email, a FastFlax (by way of highlights):

  • On Glass House Rocks: “really, it’s actually fun and people go”
  • On Subliminal Advertising: “Books on Campus lets you buy and sell textbooks online. GLASS HOUSE ROCKS. You can log in using your Facebook account and buy or sell books…”
  • On the Art of Peer Adivising: “help students make or not make the same mistakes you did”
  • On Ulterior Motives “There is free food inside the attachment.”
  • On English Majors: “please keep all grammatical corrections to yourself”

The best parts, however, Bwog will leave for those with the patience to scroll…

  • MANLEY COTTINGSHIRE says:

    @MANLEY COTTINGSHIRE HOW DARE YOU ADOPT MY TONE FOR YOUR CAPITALISTIC ENDS
    I AM THE ONLY MANLEY IN THIS HOUSE

    ok not really.

  • noo says:

    @noo you’re clearly witless. transfer to seas?

  • anyone? says:

    @anyone? Does ANYONE else find Seth’s emails incredibly annoying???!?

    1. nope says:

      @nope Seth is awesome.

  • scarfseller says:

    @scarfseller I WOULD LIKE TO SELL A SCARF PLEASE SEND ME AN E-MAIL TO BUY THIS SCARF IT IS A NICE SCARF BUT I AM STILL WILLING TO SELL IT

    1. hehe says:

      @hehe YOU made my day!

  • no. says:

    @no. the aliases were really just to fit with the theme of his you tube link, i believe.

  • shira says:

    @shira also, the e-mail was sent to beauty@columbia.edu, beast@columbia.edu, and gaston@columbia.edu! yeah aliases!

    1. references says:

      @references the beauty, beast, and gaston are, without a doubt, references to GS, CC, and SEAS

      it is up to you to decide which is which

      1. cute says:

        @cute except the ccsc email wouldn’t have anything to do with GS or SEAS. try again.

      2. Anna says:

        @Anna Beauty = CC
        Beast = Seas (but we’ll marry them anyway when they transform into rich, mansion owning princes)
        Gaston = GS (chin dimples are so dated!)

  • For the sake says:

    @For the sake of humor, I hope the stolen scarf wasn’t unique. Watching innocent people getting their faces bludgeoned is…HILARIOUS.

  • sethflax4eva says:

    @sethflax4eva sigh. i wish lerner was beautiful

  • grammar says:

    @grammar bwog no doubt failed to notice the intentional error in the subject of the email…

    1. bwog says:

      @bwog is unfailingly cognizant of the subjunctive, if that’s what you mean. but it trusts seth is as well.

  • FlaxFan says:

    @FlaxFan The amount of happiness I get out of my monthly CCSC e-mails is rather absurd. I think the 2007 campaign should involve an e-mail composition test.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous whoever posted that facebook flyer… you made my day. i want to buy you a drink. or 5!!

    1. yeah says:

      @yeah same here.
