Hey guys! Did you know we’re currently in finals season? Yep. That’s why you’re camping out on the internet and refreshing AnonCon every ten minutes. That’s why you can’t find a seat in public ANYWHERE, and that’s also why you’re sleeping and DGAFing more than ever before. And that’s also the reason you’re getting texts from that random guy you hooked up with like, seven weeks ago. Which brings us to our point: we’re all supposed to be drafting finals papers and studying for our exams, so why is it that all we can think about is sex? ALL THE TIME. EVERYWHERE. EVERY WHICH WAY. ANY TIME. ANY DAY. ANY PLACE.
We all use the same reasons every semester. We’re bored, we’re stressed and want to blow off some steam, we’re so antsy and just need to release some energy, the list goes on. Here at the Clog, however, we have some different (and obviously more scientifically supported) theories about why we’re so horned up.*
Since we’re having so much sex with junk food, we want to have just as much sex with humans too. read more »
College is a time of change. A time to figure out who we are and what it is we want out of life. We learn so many new things, about ourselves, about the world, about drinking heavily. It’s probably the time in our lives when we experience the most growth. Specifically, we grow from an eager, motivated freshman to a jaded, lazy senior. It’s a natural trajectory, so don’t be alarmed. Wondering where you fall on the DGAF scale? Check out our analysis below and decide for yourself.
Level 1: YEAH! LEARN ALL THE THINGS! GO TO ALL THE OFFICE HOURS!
Also known as eager freshman. You’re just so jazzed to be out of high school. You picked your own classes. You don’t have to be up at the ass-crack of dawn anymore. In fact, you can sleep ‘til 11:00 a.m., because all of your classes start after noon. This is unheard of in your little pre-college world. Plus, you can eat whatever you want. Could it get any better? Getting an A never looked so easy. read more »
Attention to any and all individuals with classic Toms and raw denim jackets:
As you hopefully saw yesterday, we clued you in on a little show happening tonight at The Fox Theater in Oakland. The duo performing is a veritable wet dream in the world of indie music, so we’re definitely bringing a spare pair of American Apparel underwear and gearing up for some amazing music. As we already mentioned, the opening act for tonight’s show is the effervescent and endlessly talented Merrill Garbus, better known as tUnE-yArDs. An act like that is tough to follow, but we’re confident St. Vincent has what it takes. read more »
Hipster and indie kids ahoy! There’s another super awesome and amazing concert on the horizon. As you remember, we last beseeched you to venture out to San Francisco on a Monday night to glimpse the beautiful Danish goddess, Oh Land. And this week we’re doing a double feature! There’s a wonderful and mysterious indie songstress headlining at the Fox Theater in Oakland tomorrow. We’ll save her for later (or you can cheat and Google her and ruin all the fun you big baby), because today we’re focusing on the fabulous opener. With a name that’s harder to spell than it is to say, “tUne-yArDs” is sure to bring the heat at tomorrow’s show.

Well, after our last post on the fate of Hollywood resting in the hands of films like “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” it seems we have more reason to believe that ideas are running out. Movie remakes have become more and more prevalent in recent years, especially in the genre of horror movies. In 2003 we witnessed the newest take on “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” 2010 brought us the re-imagined version of “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” which featured tween vampire star Kellan Lutz (swoon) and that weird guy with the really raspy voice from Watchmen. Most recently, we saw a newly revamped attempt at “The Thing,” which featured lots and lots of awesome CGI animation and left little to no room for real plot. And let’s not forget that remake of “Psycho” back in 1998 with a cast featuring Anne Heche, Julianne Moore and Vince Vaughn (Seriously? Vince Vaughn?).
Speaking of horror movie remakes and Julianne Moore, there’s a new horror movie “upgrade” on the horizon. read more »
Listen up everyone, because this is really important. We know there’s been a lot of turmoil lately with the budget crisis and Rick Santorum’s existence and the ASUC Elections, but we can no longer occupy our minds with such small issues. There is in the world a much more prominent issue and The Daily Clog is going to take the first step in addressing it. So, let’s cut right to the chase: there is a restaurant in Oakland that serves only macaroni and cheese. We know. We’re really excited too. Let’s all take a deep breath and sit down and talk about this. read more »
Last week, we introduced you to adorable vegan chef, Chloe Coscarelli. We were lucky enough to stop by her book signing and meet her in person, and boy is she adorable. Chef Chloe came ready to talk about food, and a batch of vegan mini cupcakes (major bonus points). To make matters even more unbearable (and we mean that in a good way), said cupcakes were adorned with glitter.
Chloe gave a talk about vegan cooking and what it means to be vegan, followed by a little Q&A session. Afterward there was a wonderful meet and greet, where the young chef proceeded to sign books and talk to her fans. She spent so much time with each person that the owners of Omnivore Books were ready to close up before she was done! Now that’s too much to handle (also in a good way).
Before Chloe left the bay, we managed to snag her for a quick interview! Check it: read more »
It’s time to put on our super tight skinny jeans, distressed denim jackets and obscure band t-shirts, because we have a new music artist that we think you’ll like! Her name is Nanna Øland Fabricius, and if that wasn’t already fabulous enough, she became Oh Land at the beginning of her music career.

It’s no secret that the vegan culture is thriving in Berkeley. There are countless vegan restaurants in the area, all of the dining halls have vegan options and there’s even a vegan cinnamon roll shop near campus (which is like, AMAZING). It’s even a pretty typical reaction from someone who hears that you’re a Berkeley student:
“You go to Berkeley? You must be like, really smart.”
“You go to Berkeley? Do you even go to class, or are you just protesting all the time?”
“You go to Berkeley? So, does that mean you’re like, a weird vegan hippie now?”
We’ve all heard it. It kind of goes without saying that the vegan food culture comes with a certain stigma. The food tastes bland, there are little to no options, vegans are trying to convert you to a lifestyle that’s much less fun … the list goes on. Well, listen up everyone because there’s a new (and young) vegan chef who’s changing minds left and right about the vegan world! She’s been taking the food industry by storm and making the vegan lifestyle look chicer than ever. She’s gorgeous, she’s sweet and best of all, she’s a recent Berkeley alum. Meet Chloe Coscarelli. read more »
It’s Sunday, everyone. Many of us are likely hung over. Some of us might be pulling all nighters for midterms. Others might be on the way home from San Francisco; a walk of shame in progress. But either way, it’s morning and we’re all hungry. And that can only mean one thing: BRUNCH. Brunch seems to be Berkeley’s specialty. There are endless options, and even the seniors here at the Clog are finding new places to eat every day. Today, however, we’re going to focus on some of Berkeley’s brunch basics, featuring some of the cheapest and most accessible late morning eats that the East Bay has to offer. read more »
