A pretty daunting (and equivocal) title, eh? Strange titles don’t intimidate us! Last night we sent new staffer Raji Ganapathy all the way to Knox Hall to check out this art talk co-sponsored by the Columbia Center for Oral History Research and the Oral History Master of Arts Program. Here are her thoughts. As I […]

The Morningside minutiae in our little Bubble Above 110th Street is what keeps us together. The tiny parts of our neighborhood that make it both boring and wonderful would seem trivial to anyone on the outside. Occasionally, we’ll be taking the time to share the minor details with you. The Entitled Sophomores indignantly note that […]

Hark! Bwog stumbled upon something new outside of everyone’s favorite place to wait online on Sunday mornings, Community Food & Juice: a new “stroller parking” section, which can be found outside the entrance along a metal bar of scaffolding. That’s right, here in New York City’s more family-friendly crevices, we don’t have parking for cars, […]
A young woman and man meet outside Ferris and engage in a ferocious round of small talk. Girl: I only had one class today! So, yeah, I’m not too busy today. Guy: Oh man, awesome! Wow! You could do anything today. You could even go to Brooklyn! But only if she flies “second to the […]

Cardiologists blame it for clogging arteries, animal rights advocates don’t like the way it’s processed, and environmentalists resent its carbon footprint. Beef has become a bad guy in […]
Yesterday, in search of relatively cheap and relatively nice-looking dorm room staples, Bwog spent the dreary afternoon at Ikea, Red Hook’s biggest and brightest mega-store. And while the Ikea Red Hook was a sight to behold, the overall experience was a minor success for Bwog’s dorm room and major’s set-back for Bwog’s budget. Here are […]
