The Number 23…on the 23rd…

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.

High Notes, Low Notes

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.

What to Rent—Blade II

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 goes downloading, is thwarted by massive CD heist

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 […]
