What can we say? Columbia is clearly the most popular place for famous people to come hang. In honor of tennis champion Novak Djokovic speaking at the Altschul Auditorium in SIPA this afternoon, Bwog wants to take a moment to reflect on some of our bff’s visits. We still couldn’t find ourselves humored by Chris Rock We […]

Certain people are insecure and can’t handle when someone is more awesome than them, so they’re accusing Michelle Obama of faking a stutter during her winning DNC speech.

  Everyone’s favorite Morningside newspaper is taking a midterms hiatus, so no QuickSpec today. There will, however, be Ask Bwog. Bwog will be taking on questions about anything—Columbia-related or not. For instance, “Why does Lerner 4 smell like vomit?” or, “Why does the M104 smell like vomit?” both make excellent queries. Send questions to bwog@columbia.edu […]

After finding out about Elton John’s shindig at the little old cathedral down the way, Bwog donned our best wannabe-paparazzi gear (i.e., a dinky digital camera) and headed over at eight o’clock for a glance at the spectacle.

Page Six is reporting that Elton John will be celebrating his 60th birthday party this evening with cocktails, dinner, and dancing just down the street at the cathedral of St. John the Divine. The guest list of 300 will probably include more star power than Columbia’s seen since the Dalai Lama.  Awesome. But does anyone […]

After Prof. Janaki Bakhle opened her morning class surprised that anyone bothered to show up with “Denzel and Russell Crowe [pictured at right on another set for the same movie] filming at 116th and Riverside,” where she was excited that she “saw limos,” Bwog could not resist checking out the scene west of campus, where yet another crew […]
