The best (or in most cases, worst) of Berkeley’s blogosphere.

* The Daily Squelch

We love The Heuristic Squelch. They are all funny people. We’re excited about their latest adventure, but it still needs a little more tweaking.

* UC Berkeley LiveJournal Community

When faced with the ultimate decision of Barack versus Hilary, the students choose … Hilarack. Sharpton. Neither.

* Beetle Beat

Beetle chastises ASUC senators for being kinda high and mighty and for not knowing the bylaws as well as he does. We’re beginning to think his candidacy wasn’t such a joke after all.

* Facebook

Remember when we harped on the class of 2011? Well, they’re at it again, except this time they’re making a popular clique. Has anybody told them this is nearly impossible in a school this size? Or that their antics are, like, so high school?

* Bears Necessity

The video’s old news by now, but thanks anyway, BN. We’re not so sure he understands this video (unlike Beetle’s candidacy) is, in fact, a joke.


This post has been edited from its previous content.

Bears Necessity, the youngun of the Berkeley blogosphere, posted an interesting video about a Cal student. Filmed mostly in the RSF, it’s about a student’s quest to bulk up for the affection of a certain lady. We guess it’s the modern, college version of a romance.

We wish we could tell you when BN actually posted the vid, but the blogger recently has removed all dates (and bylines) from his post. What’s up with that? It’s all about transparency, dude. Did you see our bylines?

They’re sexy.

Student Special: Raging Bear [Bears Necessity]


There’s another blogger out there, and we don’t mean that failed ASUC candidate Beetle. This one is a Berkeley math student. In cyberspace, he writes under Bears Necessity, but in real life you can just call him Avinash Kunnath. Dude, he’s so serious about this blogging gig he’s even got a dot com.

Does he know we’re still looking for summer writers?

His blog looks kinda promising. He’s been doing a bit about Telebears scheduling for a few weeks, focusing on a different major each time. Right on.

On his site, the up-and-comer claims that

he never reads the Daily Cal because it requires him to actually go to lecture, and also entails that he has to read words. He decided to start up his own cutting-edge media service to get in touch with the students of Cal, the nation, the world (and those aliens he knows exist out there, I’m looking at you Protoss).

Recently, though, he linked to Carnal Embrace, a conglomeration of Sex on Tuesday’s column blurbs. We guess having stuff online just makes it seem so much sexier, eh?

It looks that Kunnath is trying to start another CalStuff, may it rest in peace. He will later be looking for writers for the blog when he leaves.

He says his blog is different from newspaper publication because “we use the f-word if we can.”

Where did this royal “we” come from? Who does he think he is, the Clog?

Plus, he really shouldn’t be throwing f-bombs just because he can. That’s so fucking balls.

OK, we admit we just want him to link to the Clog once in a while. Let’s be friends.
