Happy New Year!  To bid adieu to the year that was, we are recapping the most read BlogDailyHerald articles of 2011:

10: Students who do cool things: The igloo on the Main Green

Remember Snowpocalypse 2011?  This crew of (then) Sophomores responded to the silly amount of snow by constructing and sleeping in an igloo on the Main Green.

9: Carrie Bradshaw, Brown’s latest fictional alum

Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City, released Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Novel as part of her young adult series. In the book, which follows the Sex and the City characters as teenagers, Bushnell revealed that the series’ lead mare character spent her college years at Brown!

8: BREAKING: Rest of the Spring Weekend Line-up Announced

After BlogDH broke the news that Diddy and TV on the Radio would be the two headlining acts for Spring Weekend ’11, we came back a week later with the rest of the line-up.  For those of you who were either not here (froshies) or casually too drunk to actually remember any of the concerts, here’s a brief rundown of the supporting acts: Das Racist was Das Wasted, Lee Fields wore a fantastic green suit, Rebirth got the ice rink dancing, Lissy Trullie didn’t even show up, and Nico Jaar ’12 was great for the 17 people who actually got there early enough.  Continue Reading


Brown bares all in new subreddit: Our Q&A with the site’s moderator

If you, like us, have been wasting time perusing Spotted at Brown during the last few days, you might be aware of a new subreddit heating up the Brown cyberscene. The site, punnily titled BrownBares, serves as a space for Brown students to post revealing or nude photos of themselves. As of yesterday, the URL www.brownbares.com redirects to the site.

To date, 27 posts have gone up on the subreddit, the vast majority of which feature nude or semi-nude photos of students. While most of the photos seem to have been taken in dorm rooms or bathrooms, one brave poster (deemed “Salomon” by his Spotted at Brown following) fully embraced the spirit of the subreddit and took to the 500-seat Salomon DeCiccio Auditorium to take naked pictures. Another female poster hints at having taken pictures of herself in a library bathroom. (Though no photos have featured donuts yet…)

Brunonians aren’t the only college students who like being nekkid on the Internet. Boobs@Bard, for example, is a tumblr that showcases topless photos of the women of Bard College, while its counterpart, Bard Cocks on Campus, features bottomless photos of men. Once those two sites gained traction, copycats quickly arose in WesBreasts/Westacles at Wesleyan, Titties at Tulane/Cocks on Campus at Tulane and Vag@Vassar — the men at Vassar apparently haven’t risen to the challenge.

BlogDailyHerald recently caught up with the moderator and founder of BrownBares and direct messaged him (yup, he’s male, we asked) a few of the questions we’ve all been wondering:
