  1. heyyy  

    Bwog, to be honest I am a little shocked, perhaps offended?, that you advertised Rubulad on here. It's crowded enough as it is. Besides, I don't think they like other people publicizing their events. It's supposed to be all word-of-mouth and a few mailing lists. Bwog doesn't count as either of those.

  2. FYI  

    Just to let yall crazy Tori Spelling fans know, she is staying in Le Parker Meridian midtown and is driving around in a black Escalade.

  3. i go  

    to rubulad to ESCAPE columbia. i don't want to go there and see people from my cc class.

    • amen.  

      I'm hoping the long subway ride to get there will deter Columbia people from going. So many off-campus sites of debauchery have already been ruined by the overeager, under-21 crowd so anxious to get off campus and make asses of themselves, I would be so sad if the same thing were to happen to Rubulad.

  4. are you kidding me?!

    rubulad is no secret. let's not pretend like it is.

  5. Let's get  

    TALIB KWELI on the events here ah? It's gonna be fuckin awesome
