Welcome to the equally solemn and enthusiastic beginning to your morning. We take the good with the bad, and so should you.
On Friday morning, the Columbia University Band Alumni Association sent out a press release announcing that the marching band will continue to play at future athletic events, including the homecoming game this Saturday.
It’s a new installment of Cooking with Bwog! In honor of the upcoming Hallow’s Eve, Bwogger Cara will provide you with a no-muss no-fuss potion to get you through midterms.
Bwogger Andrew Chee is live on the scene in Futter Field, where extreme wind speeds are dismantling the Big Sub. Details of this story may change as it develops.
A tipster noticed a custodian removing every poster for The Matching Game from the Hamilton bulletin boards. Naturally we had questions. Why doesn’t PrezBo want us associating him with Lady Gaga? Have you ever seen the two of them in the same place at the same time? Is PrezGa the new Ke$ho? Would they make […]
Sarah Palin officially announced she will not be running for president but still has plans to ride around in her tricked out bus. (WashingtonPost) The Occupy Wall Street protests are spreading; similar protests have sprung up in DC, Boston, LA, Chicago, Iowa, Salt Lake City, Connecticut, Philadelphia, and Cleveland. (WashingtonPost, The Daily Iowan, The Salt Lake Tribune, North Branford Patch, Fox, NBC) After […]
Floridita (you know, that Cuban restaurant that was relocated due to Manhattanville expansion) is suing Columbia University for moving it to a building contaminated with asbestos. This isn’t the first of Columbia’s asbestos-related issues. (Village Voice) Starbucks’ new 31-ounce Trenta cup can hold an entire bottle of wine. Oh, the possibilities! (Eater) A Connecticut pot […]
After years of just one Manhattan branch in Harlem, IHOP is finally coming to Times Square. Tourists rejoice! (Gothamist) Two men are accused of attacking a Queens imam in a subway and shouting racist and anti-Muslim epithets. (NY Daily News) Sarah Palin plans to visit Haiti—probably because she can’t see it from her house. (HuffPo) […]
All of the puns regarding Governor Paterson’s push for a state soda tax have been made already, but the whole thing is still rather silly. (NY Post) Someone you might actually look up to spars with ex-girlfriend on Page 6. (NY Post) Graffiti on the High Line – juvenile rebellion or historic artifact? (City Room) […]
A fair number of you politically inclined tipsters have sent us the CNN story about Palin’s mention of Rashid Khalidi’s relationship with Obama. (Good to know you aren’t harboring a grudge against CNN!) Anyway, Palin characterized MEALAC Professor Khalidi — whom she noted was a “political ally” of Obama’s — as a “former spokesperson for […]
Cooped up in the decidedly warm and dry comforts of its dorm room today, Bwog noticed on this most spooky and rainy of autumn afternoons that the jokesters at the Fed have published their third (and equally eerie) issue of the semester. Prez-Bo-Hef likes Halloween parties, digs Kanye even more. Find yourself at Ricky’s? Not […]
True fact: Sarah Palin doesn’t eat babies. Cars don’t run into you in Riverside Park. The stock market crashed! Now what? Fight Club was released nine years ago. Don’t you feel really old? Like, over nine years old? Columbia wants to demolish and rebuild in every direction! Watch out Lincoln Center. Columbia students may not […]
Bwog’s guide to Movie Rentals has returned! We’re not sure where you’re going to actually rent these films (Butler?), but we hear the Internet has a nice selection for downloading. Film correspondent Mark Hay reports. Every time I launch Firefox, I cannot escape the face persistently plastered all over my homepage. Sarah. Palin. Palin, Palin, […]
A School of the Arts third year writing student named David Harrington is receiving some attention today from the New York Daily News in response to his famous internet invention, the Sarah Palin Baby-Name Generator. The Daily News loved their new Palin names so much that certain reporters even used them as bylines. Bwog played […]
How to lose friends and alienate people Oh Sarah Palin, is there anything to which you are not tangentially relevant? The first of a two-part series on truck-based dessert foods. Reading doesn’t count unless someone sees you doing it. Why try to forget about all the fun stuff you missed out on when you could […]
With a mere 63 days left until the Presidential election, the blogosphere has lit up with speculation about the personal life of Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. While the daughter of Alaska’s favorite hockey mom may be five months pregnant and questions abound about her readiness to lead the nation should she find herself […]
