How It All Went Down, Yo

The Daily Clog is a blog from The Daily Californian. In the spring of 2006, Arts Editor Soo Oh had a blogerific idea. Then she split and went to France.

That didn’t stop us. Managing Editor Oscar Shine approached an unsuspecting Jonathan Yorde and propositioned him. Then he asked Yorde to manage the Clog. Without a bead of sweat, Yorde passed the feat of pulling a sword out of a stone, and he is since known as King Arthur. Wait, sorry — wrong story.

Anyway, Yorde started out with a splendid cast of characters: Angie Baecker, Gerald Nicdao and Lucas Westmaas. They all helped the blog emerge from its womb on Oct. 16, 2006. It was alive and kicking, but no one knew what was to come.

Almost a month later, on Nov. 8, Jeff Bowman dressed up this baby, and the Clog entered the real world — the big boys’ club, if you will. The monster was alive.

Now, here we are, ready to bowl. Just as long as it’s not Shabbos. We don’t roll on Shabbos.
