Groceries Of The Grotesque: What Is MoWill Hiding?

Ever noticed the creeping band of children’s rhymes the scroll along a wall of Morton Williams? Well, we have, and we were curious. Bwogger, part-time exorcist, and pumpkin enthusiast Phoebe Newton checks it out for us. Morton Williams was not always a grocery store. Long ago, before the food, before the ubiquitous franchise, the brothers […]

Ah, To Be Young Again

As Bwog dragged our weary old feet out of Hamilton today, we saw three adorable lil’ rascals climbing the big tree over Hamilton lawn. They were a heart-warming bunch to say the least. Note abandoned bicycles and scooters at the bottom of the tree. Climb on, comrades!

The Monsters of Mudd

   Photo by AB Bwogger Anish Bramhandkar started his year off right by heading up to the 12th floor of Mudd to catch a few minutes of Disney/Pixar’s Monsters Inc., spotted on one of those ubiquitous flatscreens.  Why is SEAS spending its considerable brainpower on kids’ movies?  Bramhandkar suggests the display is designed to convince […]

Youngster Threatens Passers-by with Awesome Hat

Bwog’s Associate Child Wrangler and Grassy Median Monitor Austin Brauser spotted a small person hiding in the brush on College Walk. Are the British back?  Is he a CUAssassin?  Don’t be alarmed – he’s probably just defending himself from stressed-out Columbians. After the jump: Young person threatens cameraman.

Goodies for tots

There is the most mouth-watering fundraiser out on College Walk right now, thrown by the (mostly) women of the Columbia Greenhouse Nursery School. Cupcakes, cookies, muffins–it’s like the platonic ideal of a bake sale! There’s also a sign for “Apple Day,” which apparently happened over the weekend, but which we think should happen every day […]

QuickFish-Slaps-A-Baby

Tipster Mariela Quintana, who volunteers at Park Slope’s 826nyc (a tutoring endeavor of Dave Eggers & Co., and previously featured on Bwog for its Superhero Supply Store), was kind enough to pass along a link to a new blog, “Fish Slaps A Baby,” started and run by their elementary-school-age students. Here you’ll read on such […]

Interview: Prof. Karl Kroeber

Professor Karl Kroeber is restless of mind, the sort of academic who likes pioneering new fields and then abandoning them. The loquacious and sagacious fellow, brother to Ursula Kroeber Le Guin [see right], currently teaches the ever-popular children’s lit course. He talked to us about growing up, “the business of imagining,” why he hates Disney, coming to terms with cancer, the Navy, and just about […]

Please stop for children

In its typical stalker fashion, Bwog followed a group of children this afternoon, fascinated by their caretakers’ kid control technique. What would happen if we tugged the string?  The leaders, apparently, have a better way of dealing with differently-minded youngsters. “S-T-O-P everyone! Someone got a flat tire,” one said, and the line came to a […]

Sixth grade fundraiser anyone? And some kids were playing leap frog outside John Jay dining […]

I Died and Went to Morningside

116th and Amsterdam may never have seen this many farm animals since, well, there were farms here. Throw in picnic food, facepainting, raffles, toy and clothes sales, and one giant inflatable firetruck, and you might just forget about that 20-page paper due on Monday. Sorry for reminding you. More photos after the jump.
