Orgo Night Live Blog

Our customary Orgo Night live blog begins shortly. From Greek life’s second home, also known as Butler 209, we bring you your pre-finals dose of CUMB. This is angsty Opinion deputy and disaffected Spec cartoonist Karl Daum with Spectrum editor Mihika Barua, self-importing band critic Ben Rimland and self-described “pretty English girl with a chip on her shoulder and a score to settle”, Katie McMahon. Check out the livestream below, and here on YouTube.

12:47 Good luck with finals everyone – remember: the answer is “c.”

12:46 And with that, we’re out and headed to a cold shower and warm pancakes. Not in that order. (Side note: Ben had a dream the other night in which he wiped away a girl’s tears with a pancake).

12:44 Mihika complains about the large butt next to the spec station. Things have really gotten to the “bottom” (lol) #startedatthebottomnowweatspec

12:42 The latest musical installment is “Leavin’ on a Prayer”, to honor Dean Martinez who “was so good Columbia is replacing her with nobody.” The room seems to be getting somewhat less packed, as we can smell real air again. (Aside: What does air smell like?)

12:39 With the joke about Dining Services’ “anti-discrimination brownies”, Karl says he is “basically writing Orgo Night.” See more of Karl’s spelling errors here. #NotShamelessSelfPromotion

12:38:30 “Fuck me sideways” – Karl

12:38 Band says “sexual assault” and the whole room groans in anticipation for the tasteless jokes that must ensue. (I made like 6 spelling errors typing this out – Karl)

12:35 They’re playing the game of thrones theme, which makes me think of Daenerys’ boobs -Ben

12:35.5 Yo it’s my windpipe, who wants water to soothe their windpipe? -Karl

12:35 Tensions are rising among the livebloggers – Karl Daum angrily swats down Mihika’s offer of water to calm his burning throat.

12:34 “It’s like a major car accident – you can’t look away and you hope only Republicans were involved”

12:33 Major G (Ben Rimland) wishes that the band would add more reverb to their production.

12:32 “For the ten of you who aren’t lying, I’m sure that your roommate appreciated your support” – with reference to those who voted in the student council elections. “Still, so many people maintained their positions it was like an orgy at Pompeii.”

12:29 And we’re recounting all X-rated campus scandals now. Analogy to the “Duke porn star who, like Duke, is easy to get in to and full of dicks.”

12:28 Someone just opened a window. More relieved than when I found out half my lit hum final (the bad half) wouldn’t count last year – Karl

12:27 Apparently spec is only good for Linkedin clout and facebook likes… and pornhub upfists (of which I received 5 last night so take that CUMB -Karl)

12:25 Now it’s getting personal: “The Columbia Daily Spectator is now a name that’s as misleading as Columbia Advising.” And our hearts all simultaneously break as “It’s a blow to paper mache artists everywhere.”

12:24 Time for the athlete jokes: “The football team stopped playing in the 80s.” Oh never mind they’re going at musical theater as well: “The V-Show stopped being funny in 1994.”

12:22 And the Planned Parenthood jibes continue, as the band segues into “A Handjob in and Under a Robe” – at least that’s what we think it’s called.

12:21 It REALLY smells in here. More than a packed train in Mumbai rush hour. – Mihika

12:20 “Luckily pro-life Barnardians sought to terminate the speaker before she arrived”

12:18 *****CONTROVERSY ALERT****** “Barnard’s Class Day speaker is as slippery as a puddle of fetuses. The president of Planned Parenthood is a majority shareholder in the Burlington Coat-hanger Factory.”

12:16 Something something spec op-eds and redundant arguments. “talk about redundant criticisms” – Karl

12:16 Still can’t find my mom-Karl

12:15 “All banner’s deserve the right to be well hung” – amen

12:14 Major G  (Ben Rimland) is happy to recommend a great “post avant azerbaijani jazzcore” album

12:13 Hatin’ on halal: “Which one has higher quality rats over rice?” Ben says the one at 115th.

12:11 Someone close to the Spec liveblog station ate curry this morning. – Ben.  Mihika immediately rejects to racist microaggression.

12:08 The band now plays “I Knew You Were Trouble (When You Walked in with a Sombrero.)

12:07 “As with a pus-filled genital wart, Theta quickly tried to cover up this blemish with.. philanthropy.” 209 may not be Greek life’s second home anymore. “But making out with a Guatemalan exchange student doesn’t count as community outreach.”

12:06 Have you seen my mom? – Karl

12:05 And another barb at Theta as “JAPs dressing as Japs.” Ooh, burn. #ThrowbackTheta #ThetaGate

12:04  And we have our first politically incorrect joke: “The failed South Korean swim test.” And “Cultural appropriation is all the rage,” with reference to this semester’s scandal at “Casa Alpha Theta that found itself in agua caliente.”

 12:03 The customary “Barnard girls use vibrators” joke. Also GS turn off your hearing aids so the buzz of sexual frustration doesn’t drown out CUMB’s jokes

12:00 Two cops yell at those damn punks sittin up in the windows. Rest safe and sleep well Columbia, public safety’s got your back.

11:59 The band marches in, interrupting a raucous “USA” chant. Everyone starts singing Columbia’s own patriotic national anthem, “Roar Lion Roar.” The school spirit still isn’t enough to start a third world war.

11:53 Butler 209 smells like sweat and frustration. The anticipation is palpable, it tastes a bit salty and sad too.

    Karl, I hope you find your mom soon, for both your sakes. Wherever she is, she’s lucky to have a son as devoted as you.

    I’d give Karl some pornhub upfists and then fuck him sideways.

    The microprocessor will monitor the increase of your temperature and automatically build changes to how very long it will cook dinner the rice.
