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.
This Bwogger witnessed an epic faceoff in their Postmodernism class yesterday, which led them to question: if “blackberry” means “I love you,” what does kicking a cockroach out of a classroom mean?
You may have heard that a new movie featuring Barnard alum Greta Gerwig, BC ’06, was recently released in theaters. We sent Daily Editor Betsy Ladyzhets to check out Mistress America and see if it’s worth you spending your money on a ticket. In the past couple of months, there have been two movies after […]
Tonight the initiative that brings you tons of free food, live music and other fun events around campus, Live at Lerner, opens its Fall season with a screening of Pitch Perfect tonight at 8 pm on Ancel Plaza. For those of you who aren’t hip with the a capella kids, Pitch Perfect stars one of […]
Be on the lookout for the November and December issues of The Blue & White, on campus this week everywhere you look in Butler. As we always have done, Bwog will honor our heritage/amorous affair with our mother magazine by posting features from the upcoming issue. Below, Tom Humphreys asks a very important question: who […]
Filming for The Longest Week, a film starring Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde, Billy Crudup, and our very own Jenny Slate (!) and to be released in 2012, is taking place on 116th and Claremont today until 5pm. The plot summary on IMDB, which pretty convincingly suggests that this production won’t win any awards, reads: “Affluent and […]
Because Antoine Dodson is getting his own show! Bwog predicts several new techno remixes to follow. (NY Daily News) And, kids these days are getting high on bath salts! No, seriously! (Gawker) And also, there are primates on College Walk! Well, not exactly. But there were. Sort of. One 2011 Sundance documentary explores the experience […]
Have you ever noticed how time seems to run so much more slowly when you’re not drinking 9 cups of coffee a day and putting half of that energy into being passively aggressive? Bwoglines leisurely returns with a first installment: a feast of not-strictly-topical links, and context—something we all wish we had more time for. […]
CU Dance Marathon and Student Global AIDS Campaign are sponsoring a screening of the movie Philadelphia and a free dinner tonight from 7pm to 10pm in the Satow Room in Lerner. Cuisine details remain a mystery, but the movie is a “1993 American drama inspired by the true story of Geoffrey Bowers, an attorney who sued […]
Sam Schube had the chance to revel in the mayhem of 1968 at a screening of a new J-School documentary. Mere hours after real-life protest flared up along Broadway, filmmaker (and J-School student) Paul Cronin brought students back to an era of a different sort of Columbia protest. He was on campus to screen sections […]

BruceWillisFanemail@example.com [Sam Schube] alerts us that six sanitation trucks are lined up on Broadway and 113th–EXACTLY of like that scene in Die Hard with a Vengeance when $140 billion of gold is carted away in dump trucks. A word to the wise: keep an eye on your bricks, friends.
Club Dimensions, in consort with Club Bangla and the Kraft Family Fund will be showing an animated film at 8:00 PM tonight in the Lerner Cinema. It tells the Indian epic of Ramayana using joke-cracking shadow puppets (snarky shadow puppets?). Plus there will be FREE ROTI ROLL served BEFORE the event. Assume that means there […]
The next time you forget your ID and get turned away from Butler, remember: when Argentine President Cristina Kirchner came to visit, campus security apparently refused to let her NYPD escort enter Low. The officer, probably grateful to escape, instead took the opportunity to snap a picture of the steps. More common, but also more […]
