Investigating The Mysterious Fuck Spec Flyers

We’ve been spotting mysterious “Fuck Spec” flyers around campus. We kind of wish it was us, but it’s not. We sent Staff Write Abby Rubel to investigate.  Approximately eight days ago, a flyer appeared in the Hartley lobby promoting a new website: fuckspec.com. I immediately investigated, because nothing excites a Bwog writer more than someone […]

Spec Could Hear Us Knocking But We Couldn’t Come In

This past summer, the Columbia Daily Spectator was forced out of its old office space on Broadway between 11th and 112th Street. The publication has not yet found a permanent new home, but for the time being its staff has taken over a few rooms in Riverside Church. Whether or not this move uptown is part […]

Columbia Daily Spectator Forced Out Of Old Office Space

The Columbia Daily Spectator, Columbia and Barnard’s lovable weekly “daily newspaper” and perpetual op-ed machine, is to shortly move out from their old building at 2875 Broadway, which was located between 111th and 112th—conveniently adjacent to the Heights. According to an email sent earlier this evening to Spectator alumni, which is appended below, “the landlord has asked the […]

GUYS, @CUSpecOpEds Used Their Logo, and the Spec is ON IT

Even though we’re barely into winter break, Columbia stuff has happened on the World Wide Web. So. About a week ago, it looked like Spectator‘s opinion page was handed the same Twitter treatment as we did earlier this month. (If you haven’t yet explored @BwogTheater, you should.) Spec got @CUSpecOpEds, which cut across political lines to […]

Check Yo Self Before You Email The Entire Spec Staff

Typically in listserv fuck-up posts, we remind you to never ever hit “reply all.” This time, however, we have a cautionary tale of checking the “send” line so you don’t reveal your egotistical jackass-ery to the full listserv and end up offending someone. Spec’s Publisher sent an email tonight that was supposed to go to […]

Read Sophomoric Op-Eds of Yesteryear

Earlier this morning, our august print newspaper, the Columbia Daily Spectator, announced that they have put a limited number of their archives online. Until today, Spec’s archives have been read by a very small number of people—smaller, even, than the number of people who read contemporary editions. Why? Spec’s archives have only been available in […]

Things You Should Pretend You Already Knew

Sometimes, fresh-people, in a seminar, or at a party, someone will reference something that used to exist and doesn’t anymore, and you will have to nod your head or laugh knowingly. Ah yes, Morningside is like, so gentrified, you will say. We asked alumni of The Blue and White and Bwog for places, events, and […]
