Douchey McDouchester Protects Car With Orange Cones on 8th Street

A friend o'FIPS sent in a couple photos of this sweet ride with the following scoop:
Parked on my block of 8th Street over the weekend, the owner of this car actually deployed 4 orange traffic cones placed in front of, next to, and behind the pumpkin orange auto to keep the riff-raff - that would be us - away from his/her prized possession.  What doesn't show up in the first photo at all, but kinda can be spotted in the second, is that the grill of the car has a KITT-like  (from Nightrider) pulsing  blue light moving  back and forth to presumably further scare away intruders.

Town Hall Meeting Held in Discuss Messed Up Cop Policy to Kick Kids Out of the Hood

Image via NY1This past Friday a town hall meeting was held at John Jay to discuss the bullshit policy under which cops tell kids to get the hell out of the neighborhood. Students and other community members were given an opportunity to speak their mind and share their experiences.

"Am I still looked at like a criminal? Can I walk down the street? That's technically how I look at it," said Steven Martin, an 11th-grade student, according to NY1. He is, obviously, a dark skinned kid and, at the rate things are going, only marginally better off in Park Slope than in Ferguson.

“Our children should be able to walk in any neighborhood... and not be stopped because of the color of their skin,” said Casey Robinson, the Co-Vice President of the Park Slope Collegiate PTA. Park Slope Collegiate is one of four schools housed in John Jay. I think it’s worth pointing out that their children ARE able to walk in any neighborhood; it’s not a freedom that hasn’t been established, it’s just a freedom the cops are choosing to deny them.

Cool or Not Cool: The Brunch Jerks

https://talkforchange.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/funny-messy-baby-2-575x417.jpgWe here at the FIPS media empire have often covered the brunch scene in our little nirvana of a barrio, and not once have we called the attendees of these drinking luaus a bunch of jerks.  At least I think so. Other words, yes. But jerks? Never! That indicates a level of douchiness we usually reserve for entitled yuppies, who in their own awesome bro-ness like to kick kids off of soccer fields so they can pretend they are still at the U in the quad being younger versions of the assholes they have become. But I digress.  While there is absolutely no shortage of brunch fuckery in Manhattan, I like to think that we are spared the horror of watching the bro-ho crowd barf[AJ1]  their way through college.  Instead we saunter into our normal food troughs and peck at an organic egg brioche while little Gulliver and Wren study Ilokano in the double-wide stroller blocking the door.  So what do you think? Is Brunch for Jerks, Jerkettes, and little Jerkies?

Sponsored By car2go.

car2go is always a pleasure to drive: just take it, drive it, park it. It's fun, saves money and helps the environment.

Brooklyn is going through something of a transportation renaissance. Remember the old days, when it was impossible to get a cab, and you had to call for a dicey, fake-pine-smelling livery car? Now there are bike lanes, green cabs, and, coming this month, car2go. Soon, when you need a car, you’ll just find one parked nearby, drive to your destination, and leave it there for the next person to use.

If that sounds like something you might want to try, make sure to register for car2go before the October 25 launch date: for a limited time, you can sign up for free and you’ll get 30 minutes of free driving. There’s no monthly fee with car2go — you just pay for the minutes you use. So this is a free chance to drive the eco-friendly, two-passenger Smart Fortwo around your favorite borough (and to see how easy it is to park a car that’s 35% smaller than average).

Check out car2go’s website for FAQs on signing up, driving, and parking. And don’t forget to sign up now while it’s still free (Promo code: BKLYN), and get 30 minutes of free driving!
