It’s the first Friday of the semester! Take a break from obsessively rearranging your schedule to catch up on global and local news with Bwoglines.
Welcome back from winter break! While the days of relaxing in warm and sunny places or skiing in fresh snow are gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the city during the winter.
Good morning Columbia! As homework begins to pile up and you realize the semester is actually, really, 100% starting, know that Bwog is here for you when you can’t waste your entire day reading the
Here, Bwog generously provides a closely-held recipe for Russian Tea (which neither comes from Russia nor contains tea), and it’s the perfect Beverage-in-Mug to warm you the hell up.
Bwog is no stranger to weird happenings on campus that end up going viral. This one, though, has us stumped. Is this some sort of Baccha90s guerilla marketing campaign? Who is the “ring pop princess” and what does she want from us? Is this her organization’s manifesto? What follows is all of the evidence we’ve managed to […]
At 9:55 am this morning, Bwog received an anonymous tip that a massive banner had just been unfurled from the windows of Butler that read, “It’s going to be OK. You’re not alone.” Before we had a chance to document this magnanimous act, at 10:03 am the same tipster reported that the poster had been […]
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh…Who lives by a trash can right next to south field? Apparently, this guy. Who is either the creation of an imaginative procrastinator or an adorable little Nickelodeon fan. We’re not sure how long he can survive without water, so hopefully someone will adopt him soon and give him a cozy submerged fruit to live […]
A Ruggles resident, also responsible for last year’s inflatable tube man meets party streamer french fries, created another art installation. It kind of reminds us of an an iridescent worm or a rogue shower curtain. Maybe a wisp of pensieve escaping as our beloved dorm dies, while its windows trap its noble spirit to linger […]
A band of mysterious vigilantes just swept through the ref room posting pictures of naked (“nude” for you sophisticated Art History major you!) people. It turns out they are leftover drawings from Artist Society’s weekly life-drawing classes. They’re there for the taking, but we’re obviously all watching you, so good luck! But wait! There’s more […]
Deep in the bowels of Pupin, mathematical notation holds Physics students tight in its rational grip. Though confined to windowless sun-deprived cells, these scientists secretly engage in renegade artistic expression. Note the effervescent nature of the flowers and the anthropomorphic eggplant, so fleetingly sketched in chalk.
Rare is the day when Bwog kicks things off by satisfying your doubtless insatiable appetite for Columbia-related experimental art news, but here goes: The recent spate of bias incidents have led John DeSerio, GS, to undertake a marathon social and artistic experiment: for the next week, his “word wall” will be on display on Low […]
In which Bwog conspiracy theory debunker Alex Weinberg takes on something that’s been bugging us for a while. What’s up with those teeth? For the past few weeks, there have been odd dental-themed art installations seen outside of Nacho’s and on the scaffolding across from Carman on 114th Street. The remains of a former installation […]
Figure out who’s posting the jaws around campus? This pair was spotted above the scaffolding from EC to Revson Plaza, and it’s starting to get unnerving. Friday afternoon edit: We noticed a plastic container in Lerner lobby bearing a poster covered in similarly orthodontic motifs. It also has a sign that asks passersby to donate “literature for prisoners.” […]
BW’s art editor, Rachel Lindsay (also the woman behind that fantastic mural down in JJ’s) was really excited to find this unusual installation, and wrote in: People try REALLY hard to get things noticed on the bulletin boards in Hamilton. But today: a clear winner — it just comes out and bites you. Check out […]
