NATIONAL BED BUG SUMMIT SUMMARY / YOUR FUTURE SUICIDE NOTE

OMG, I can’t believe I missed the 2nd Annual National Bed Bug Summit!

But I bet those BB experts have that shit crawling all over them, so actually no thanks. Bed bugs are for realizes proof that 2012 THE END OF THE WORLD is right around the motherfucking corner. Luckily Brick Underground went to the summit, probs got bed bugs and then did a run down of all the junk that went on there.

This stuff is important you guys. Like if you don’t read on, you WILL get bed bugs. Or at least crabs.

MISSING! CAPTAIN STRONG! 

HELLLLLP!

Captain Strong is Missing!

This sign was spotted on 14th Street between 8th & PPW. And as it aptly wonders: WHERE IS HE NOW?? WHERE IS CAPTAIN STRONG? HE WAS LAST SPOTTED ON THE F TRAIN! IS HE GONE FOREVER???

For the record, if the Capt. is found due to the efforts of FIPS, I will totes split the $1.38 reward with whomever spots this little mofo.

The BALLER in me is *trying* to resist but I'm sorry: this sign is just too fucking cute.

NO, I WILL NOT DISCUSS MY "BIG CITY LIFE"

If you've ever left your safe, self-righteous cocoon of Park Slope to return home for the holidays only to be faced with questions about your "big city life"—wherein you haul your dirty clothes down to the laundromat in a sack over your shoulder, see rats on a consistent basis, and witness an average of seven felonies even before you walk through the door of your office building—this pie chart is for you.

Fabulous in Park Slope: North Face and Ann Taylor Loft?

"The popular free online personal shopper" Shop It To Me decided to wind down from Fashion Week with a random sampling of the purchasing habits of its 9,600 BK members. They analyzed the twenty most popularly selected brands within each geography: hence all those ugly-ass Uggs. 

And guess what? Coney Island is in Fendi and Dior, Clinton Hill's in DKNY, and we're in fucking Ann Taylor Loft!? Not even Ann Taylor but Ann Taylor LOFT?

This will not stand, I tell you.

Is this preferable to being bare-assed like Bay Ridge and Midwood, who presumably can choose their own handbags and footwear without the assistance of personal online shoppers?

Let's get a real sample: what brands are YOU wearing today?

I'm in Dansko, Levis and Gap myself. God, I'm a cliche.
