Bwog’s foreign cartoon correspondent, Jamila Barra, continues to supply Columbians with her artistic renditions of daily life in Argentina. While studying Spanish abroad, she has been playing with different artistic styles and wishes to give the finals-facing student body some summer vibes. We are all inclined to thank Jamila for reminding us that even though […]
Tonight at 7:00pm (get there by 6:50!), Lerner Party Space plays host to Awaaz’s production of The Priest and the Prostitute, a one-act adapted from a seventh-century Sanskrit farce. If that’s not enough to tempt you–and, really, anything called The Priest and the Prostitute should be enough to tempt you–Columbia Dhoom, the Bollywood dance group, […]
Mere minutes ago, Bwog received photographic evidence that widely-acclaimed cover artist (oh, and Carman public safety officer-in-chief) Sir Mike brought down the house at Earl Jam tonight. Sir Mike, informally known as Michael Layne, is widely perceived among first-years to be the only friendly adult on campus. Tip for freshmen: he has been known to […]
A band of revelers led by a wildly gesticulating Santa Claus made waves across Columbia this afternoon, prompting several tipsters to ask “wtf?”. The possibly drunk, underweight Saint Nicholas and his six disciples marched across campus twice today, interrupting classes, being mistaken for CUMB, and playing, among other things, a rousing rendition of It Don’t […]
Word on the street is that there will be a massive pillow fight midnight at the Sundial, BYOP. Bwog thinks it might be a good way to wind down after a stressful weekend of procrastination. UPDATE 12:39 am Students crept out of nooks in Butler for a few minutes of late-night frenzied glee […]
Bwog Correspondent Mark Holden reports: The Big Kiss II went down last Saturday, this time at the Whitney Museum. Apparently, an art professor thought it would be hilarious if a bunch of college kids started smooching in the middle of his exhibition. Which is exactly what happened. This Big Kiss didn’t achieve the Low Steps […]
Apparently a group of kids in the group study room on the fourth floor of Butler have been doing handstands against the wall for the past twenty-five minutes. Which is probably in the sixtieth or so percentile in terms of weird shit that’s gone down in those rooms.
Remember coming to Columbia and thinking that you would do fun, exciting things in the city? Right, we don’t either. But tonight, there is an opportunity to redeem yourself: What: A party in the subway! When: 1 AM tonight (Thursday night/Friday morning) Where: Downtown Q Platform, 34th Street/Herald Square Station Theme: EXTREME LOVE (Dress accordingly) […]
Bwog correspondent Brendan Ballou reports: I think I just saw him in Morningside Park, wearing a black sweater and black sunglasses. It would make sense, since he’s probably starting his book tour, and I remember some scenes from The Professor of Desire take place in Morningside. Besides, if it isn’t him, someone can make an […]
Anna Corke reports on today’s Low Steps face sucking. Despite rainy weather, about 30-40 people showed up for The Big Kiss. The event was well-documented: two participants brought personal cameras, 3 campus news groups showed up (CTV, Bwog, Spec). One boy told me that he was planning to “make out with his camera.” First the […]
Jim Williams reports: A recent event in Noha Radwan’s Contemporary Islamic Civilization lecture causes this Blue and White correspondent to wonder whether certain students are making a feeble attempt to revive PrangstgrÃ¼p or whether said students are merely assholes. About 20 minutes into class, a college-aged male who may or may not attend Columbia University […]
Once upon a time, Columbians dared to dream. Musicals in Butler Library. Silent dance parties on South Field. Pornography clubs at Acivities Day. Those dreamers constituted Prangstgrüp. And it pains Bwog to learn that few Columbians today are aware of the sauciest avant garde prankster group to ever mock Columbia. True, most of Prangstgrüp’s members […]
At about 12:45, all 70+ students lunching in a packed Cafe 212 were treated to a soaring gospel rendition over the loudspeakers of “Jesus Loves the Little Children,” a favorite with Sunday Schools the world over. Basically, the only words are a repeated loop of “yes, Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so.” Probably […]
Bwog, in a fit of teary-eyed, second-semester senior nostalgia, decided to attend our first ever Columbia sporting event last night, the men’s basketball game against Yale. And while we lost in a heartbreaker, JJ Jumper still managed to provide a moment of amusement. Not to be confused with Roar-ee, Columbia’s own lamely named mascot, JJ […]
