Profiles In Courage: Joe Holtz of the Park Slope Food Coop

Holy shit, Joe Holtz is awash in paper. We have to think back a few short weeks ago to Design Sponge's aesthetic and ascetic home office in order to appreciate the full glory that is Joe Holtz's impossibly cluttered work space at the Park Slope Food Coop. And it must be said: I LOVE IT! In fact, I think Erica and Grace Bonney should showcase Joe's awesome decor on their blogs. Or maybe Hoarders could do an episode.

Joe Holtz—the Food Coop's first paid employee and its longtime General Coordinator—is my personal hero, even though he does make me snort barf occasionally with his zealous righteousness.

Mostly, though, Joe is so low-key, unassuming, nice, and utterly without vanity or ego, you would have no idea that he's a titan of non-profit industry, Crain's NY and Fortune poster boy, and recipient of a Marty Markowitz proclamation...or day...or something.

Animal Hats Are Now A Thing

From a recent NYT article by Amy Sohn regarding the ever growing popularity of adults wearing animal hats:

"Miriam Eusebio, 46, a theater director, wears a panda hat for a paid moonlighting gig at the Park Slope Food Coop, in part because the basement is cold, and in part because she likes it. Though not a mom, the petite Ms. Eusebio likes to buy children’s clothing because “kids get brighter colors and the bright colors make me happy,” she said."

Ok, so:

* "paid" gig at the Food Coop? Hunh?

* +10 for featuring a BALLER

* - 50 because the BALLER likes to dress like a child

Hey Park Slope: what do you call a stereotype, wrapped inside a stereotype, wrapped inside an Amy Sohn trend piece?

If you see anyone wearing an animal hat today, you have our permission to punch them directly in the face.

PRIME 6 PETITION TWO: ELECTRIC BUGABOO

God bless the fucking Internet, AMIRITE?! I would suck the internet's dick and let it shoot its load inside me.

I mean look: let's say you came across some blatantly racist whore, who needed to be schooled in an incalculable number of ways, but you knew that nothing you could ever do would teach her a lesson. The whole experience would leave you frustrated with the awful knowledge that she would never in a million years get what was coming to her!

But with the internet, you simply post about her on your blog that gets a million pageviews a month, and then BAM! Gawker, Gothamist, the NY Post, the Huffington Post, the Wall Street JOURNAL--all these fun-loving guys join in the fun, and pretty soon the entire tri-state area is calling her a cunt.

I wonder where she is, yaknow? Have you guys been thinking about that too? I want to see her reading all this press - I wonder if it's getting the message into her skull? Nah, it never does - I guarantee you she just just feels misquoted, maligned, and misunderstood.

COOL OR NOT COOL: GETTING YOUR KID'S NAME / FACE TATTED ON YOUR BOD?

this is so not me, FYIzers

Answer: COOL AS FUCK!

I just totally inked my arm with my toddler's initial INSIDE A HEART. I know that I am super lame and I totally hate myself, but I love my kid CRIZAZY amounts. I'm like not even into
tattoos. I have one already, but I only got it because I had just been broken up with and I was in a downward spiral or whatevs. But this tattoo rules your face! (Somebody help me, it's like I don't even know
myself anymore.)

Do other renties in Park Slope have kid tattoos, or am I the only one?

Bar Bathrooms of Park Slope

You know how sometimes you go out to some Park Slope bar and get totally smashed, and start flirting with some DILF even though you're already married, and then you keep drinking, and then some chick hits on you and you kiss her just for funzies, and then you realize you're so drunk you have to go throw up in the bathroom? Just me?

Anyway.

There's lots of cool graffiti shit on the walls of Park Slope bar bathrooms, and the L Magazine took pictures of of it all, so now you too can avoid any unnecessary bi-sexual hangovers.

Yep. You're welcome.
