Remember when Bwog turned 10? Remember when we changed our logo, posted a lot of cool articles, and reminisced about the beginning of the internet? It was great, and to perpetuate the nostalgia, here’s a Bwog Asked from patrons of ButCafé on what they think of Bwog now. The staffer who gathered these responses noted: […]

Too Bad We’re Not Allowed to Have Candles

Some say a friend’s worth may be measured by whether or not he or she remembers your birthday. Oops! The Internet just reminded us that Columbia King’s College turns 258 today. Gothamist commemorated the day with neat old photos and some stories from the days Columbia spent romping around between Morningside Heights and Madison Avenue. […]

Subtle Signs Of Aging

We at Bwog are big on celebrations—or anything that involves party hats, really. So when a tipster spotted the following sign outside Mel’s, we couldn’t help but wonder who exactly “The Boss” is (Bruce himself?) and whether or not we’re invited… Although we were initially disappointed to find out that the party isn’t in honor […]

Bwoglines: Change Clothes and Go

The New York Times talks about education with professional dancers in GS. But we all love to see people chain smoking anxiously outside of Mathematics… (Spec) Elaine Kaufman, owner of the famous restaurant Elaine’s, dies at 81. (NYT) He’s got 99 problems, of which one is definitely not a birthday. Happy birthday from all of us on […]

Bwog found Mickey Avalon’s backstage spread rather ordinary – fruit, iced water, some Red Bull. When Zoe Camp and Peter Krawczyk showed up to interview him before last night’s show, they couldn’t detect slightest sign of illicit behavior – for all we know, it could have been Al Gore’s green room. But then out walked […]

Boardhop: Warm and Homey Edition

Bwog came upon a well-woven wonder on Carman 9, when we saw this rug stretching from wall to wall.  According to the blackboard, it was Liz’s birthday.  And she got a rug!  Maybe. The icy white cinder blocks of Carman just got a little warmer.  You go, freshlings!

Teen Angst is Right Around the Corner

Lerner is turning 10 this year, but why throw a birthday party when you can throw a birthday party-themed STUDY BREAK?!  The Lerner Piano Lounge, for 10 years full of people trying to act like they don’t hear that bad pianist practicing while they’re trying to read, will have 500 cupcakes and what’s being called […]

Lerner Survives a Decade of Hate

Well, what do you know!  Alfred Lerner Hall is having a birthday, and you’re all invited!   It’s been ten years since the much-maligned student center first opened.  There’s no cake, but there’s a banner and several photos from Lerner’s younger years taped to the glass. And praise be, they’re visible from the outside as […]

The Tri-State Area’s Favorite Poet Turns 125!

As Janice May Udry once said, “A poem is nice.” Actually she said “A tree is nice,” which is actually a poem.  But the point is poems are nice.  So in honor of nice things and nice September afternoons, Bwog honors the 125th Birthday of William Carlos Williams.  Although the actual date of his birth, […]

Happy Birthday Sunil Gulati, etc.

Did you know that other people associated with Columbia besides the Terrible 12s have been doing things (exciting things, in fact) this summer? It’s true! Here, we’ll prove it to you: — Columbia law professor (and subject of a 2007 Blue and White profile) Tim Wu wrote an op-ed for the New York Times about […]

48 is a good age

If you’re Sunil Gulati, of course. And he is, today, marking the first time anyone has been wished happy birthday for two consecutive years by Bwog, which hopes it will be as dashingly handsome as the U.S. Soccer Federation prez when it gets that old. The silver hair and sarcastic cracks get us every time. […]
