Bike across GGB

In light of recent Golden Gate Bridge celebrations, we thought that for our next summer bucket list item, we’d involve our favorite 75-year old bridge (because there are just so many of them!). After taking a nice naked dive into Strawberry Canyon Pool, try drying off by … well, drying off. And then hit up the GGB for a bike ride — yeah, we know, physical activity gets to us too.

Cannes Film Festival

The Cannes Film Festival is, if you don’t know already, one of the world’s largest and most prestigious film festivals. One of our very own, former Daily Cal arts and entertainment writer and UC Berkeley graduate Ryan Lattanzio, was able to land the coveted position of a jury member and critic for the movie fest this year.

The Clog sat down for an exclusive interview with him to dissect the adventures of a Cannes jurist — we learned a few things, including the process of getting there (which involves many brutal battles of bravery), the crazy Disneyland-like lines to get into film screenings, and Bill Murray’s camouflaging tendencies. Here’s his take on it: read more »

prison

Protestors marching against tuition increases at the UC Regents Meeting on Wednesday, May 16 dressed up as inmates from a “debtor’s prison” and stormed the Capitol. And when we say stormed, we really mean walked around in a circle singing Sam Cooke’s “Chain Gang.”

The song choice was most befitting of the occasion, and the Clog liked it so much that we decided to proffer some other musical selections for potential future use: read more »
