New Cornell Blog Runs Circles Around MetaEzra

Thereís a new student-run blog on East Hill, and it is everything that MetaEzra is not. Smart, suave, and sassy.

Off The Record Ė Cornell University, has been cranking out hilarious and irreverent posts for the past couple of weeks, basically covering everything The Sun, The Ithaca Journal, IvyGate, and this humble blog should be covering -- including, but not limited to, top prospects for the hockey team, Al Gore's Cornell connections, and, um, the best place to relieve oneself on campus.

In truth, we have been waiting for this for a long time. A place as exciting and as crazy as Cornell just begs to be blogged about with wit, wisdom, and tough love by current students. We have heard rumors of another Cornell-centric blog being launched this fall, but until then, this blog takes the cake. The blog is supposed to be anonymous, but one editor appears to be Zack Mast '10.

So weíre going to have to have to wave the white flag on this one. If you desire aging alums writing dry treatises on Cornellís role in Upstate New York, tidbits of Cornell history, way more data on Cornell admissions than you would ever want to know, or exclusives on things like the capital campaign, the salary of Cornellís CIO, or the wives of former Cornell presidents, come to MetaEzra. But if you are looking for a daily dose of Cornell-related hilarity, dial up OTR: Cornell.

And if posting is light around here, itís only because we are too busy reading the blogs of others.
