A portly microbiologist, a starving child-laborer, and a mono-pedal Santa impersonator walk into a party. But this isn’t a bad joke. It’s the inciting incident for Celebration, a 2019 black comedy set and filmed—and then banned—in Russia.
Thursday night, Caroline Mullooly attended Cultural Heritage Practices & Critical Fashion: How Does (High) Fashion Interpret Cultural Heritage?, a workshop and exhibition at the Italian Academy.

One of the greatest perks of an Ivy League education is having all sorts of guest lecturers and talks hosted right on campus. Yet many of these great talks are not publicized enough. Enter Bucket List, a weekly feature that aggregates these events in a single location that will hopefully make you realize, like Bwog has, […]
If you are in Morningside Heights right now and have nothing to do, or something okay-not-great to do, go to St. John the Divine to listen to people play the piano. But wait! These aren’t just people, and this isnt just any piano! Professional musicians will be playing music all day at the Cathedral in […]
Bwog got so into capital-H-Housing today that we almost forgot that it’s an alternate Wednesday–which, of course, means QuickTix, our biweekly glance at what’s selling on and off campus. Thanks as always to the Arts Initiative for the info. (And a tip: just about all of these–and more!–can be found on our Bucket List.) Tickets […]

Our hackneyed and usually depressing Roone Arledge, with […]

Happy studying! O, autumn! That time of year when yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang! This may or may not be such […]
Earlier this weekend, Culture Editor Tony Gong attended Liga Filipina’s inaugural “Taste of the Philippines.” Between bites of crispy lumpiang and creamy flan, Tony found a few golden moments of serenity brought on by an atmosphere that could only have been: the Philippines, a.k.a., Lerner Party Space. Never one to pass up an inexpensive meal […]
Last night, Culture Editor Tony Gong went to CCSC’s massive multicultural event “Passport to Columbia,” and returned a little more appreciative of diverse foods, arts, and Columbia, the nation. His account of the night follows. Some people (naysayers and cynics, mainly) don’t think you need a passport to go to Columbia. “Columbia is a university, […]
In which BW culture editor Paul Barndt presents a swashbuckling throwback.
