Cloyne is the center of innovation, experimentation and recreation. It makes sense that a co-op as large and as rambunctious as Cloyne would not only have a talent show but also upload videos of the special event.

Dance, it seems, is the clone’s art of choice. Above, we have a engaging rendition of the Evolution of Dance, deftly choreographed for multiple dancers.

Another is not so successful.

Not so fast, Napoleon wannabe. Your moves can’t match the glory of the film. In the socially-challenged teen’s words, we’d have to say “this is pretty much the worst video ever made.”

OK, so not the worst worst, but we doubt that you, the dear readers, will get through it.

Why is the Clog putting up this clip of former Secretary of Labor and professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy Robert Reich on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”? It’s awesome, for one. And practically speaking, we think it shows the “get tough on crime” approach we need in the face of recent events. We hope the Berkeley police will get the memo. Let’s get Conan to lead the crackdown.

Digging through YouTube, we decided to vary our search from “UC Berkeley” to “Cloyne.” There wasn’t as much booty as we had hoped, but we did set ourselves to wondering.

What came first: the chicken …

Or the pot?

We don’t know who made this, but it’s great. We mean, Facebook = great.

And this video knows its shit: “It’s on Facebook, so it’s official.” Isn’t that how we all live our lives?

There have been a few trends this week that are so egregious, the Clog is taking it upon itself to make you a better bear.

Today, the Clog noticed multiple students wearing Cal crocs. As the foremost footwear-named publication on campus (come write for us), please believe us when we say that as addictive as they are to wear, just say no.

But the alarming trends do not stop there. Berkeley is apparently totally into stealing the intellectual property of flash mobs. Instead of coming up with their own moneymaker, some students recently decided to reflash the ninja scene.

Didn’t that look a lot like this video from January:

We can only hope that there will be better trends at this weekend’s annual Fashion and Student Trends fashion show. Facebook says more than 300 people are going.


Nevermind the voyeuristic angle of this video, it appears the TGIFers had a pre-election flash mob on campus. And although the referendum to increase campus green projects passed, this pulsating event certainly affected the environment and our memories in a lasting way. It was too good not to share.

The big spenders certainly know how to bring in the green: by taking it off! The dance classic “Call On Me” becomes a rallying cry for the TGIFers. So hott.
