With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
We warned you. Bwog music critic Bryan Mochizuki has been peeing his pants all week for this moment: the Oscar Liveblog. Awards will start dropping in about an hour, so meanwhile, Bryan’s got a warmup for you. Keep refreshing for the latest updates. I don’t know a single person who is excited about Ellen DeGeneres […]
In which Bwog freelancer Ashley Nin describes a flick that thrills in spite of itself. David Beckham’s jersey number is 23. According to the Mayans, the apocalypse is predicted for the year 2012. 20+1+2=23. Pink is a combination of Red and White, and if you add up their letters (for example, R is the 18th […]
In which Bwog music critic Bryan Mochizuki programs your Friday, Sunday, and Monday nights. There are at least two really great shows in the city this weekend and two equally shiver-inducing MP3’s to share today, but first…THE OSCARS ARE THIS SUNDAY. Among the reasons to be excited: this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Ennio […]
Bwog music metacritic Bryan Mochizuki critiques the iTunes valentines day mixes, and offers his own. The advanced minds of the iTunes Music Store have put together a collection of mixes for Valentine’s Day, and they’re…pretty crappy. It’s bad enough that some people will actually give their dude “Rock Love Songs For Him” – so does […]
Yeah, we know they’re still two weeks away, but Bwog likes to get things rolling early. Because there’s not much else exciting about February, we bring you an abridged set of Oscar predictions from daily Bwog editor Dan D’Addario and contributor Ashley Nin–because no one cares who did the best sound mixing anyway (Dan’s responses […]
Bwog music critic Bryan Mochizuki explains the world of mixtapes, the reasons to buy them, and how to choose them well. You used to be able to walk up to 125th any time of day and there’d be half-a-dozen guys camped out between 7th and Lenox selling mixtapes – five bucks a pop, four for […]
Bits and pieces gathered from the musical universe by Bwog music critic Bryan Mochizuki: The new Norah Jones comes out today, and her two parallel existences continue. One is the more popular Norah “always a safe bet for Mom” Jones, or Snorah for naysayers. The other is her insanely cred-garnering alter-ego, the one who covered […]
In which BW culture editor Paul Barndt indulges a taste for blood and gore. You may have caught Pan’s Labyrinth, a violent fairy tale set in fascist Spain written and directed by Guillermo del Toro. It has a good shot at the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar this year, and I, for one, am a […]
Bwog music critic Bryan Mochizuki would really like to have a mixtape review for you this week. Unfortunately, this happened two nights ago, and since Drama is the biggest DJ in the game, everyone is clamming up. www.datpiff.com, the site that streams them for free, didn’t stream anything yesterday, and all of the places to […]
