Day Two: MatisyaWHO?

For you, on day two: a Hanukkah miracle.

I heard a live acoustic version of the insta-classic heeb holiday song, Miracle, last night on NPR and fell in love with hassid reggae/hip hop/beatbox singer Matisyahu. And that was before I got a load of this acid trip of a video.

Atlantic Yards: Bruce Ratner, You Suck. You Really Do!

a rendering by the Municipal Art Society via Gothamist

I haven't always followed the whole Atlantic Yards hullaballoo as closely as I should have but I do seem to remember a WHOLE lot of talk about stuff like thousands of units of low-income housing, reciprocal ACORN love, an end to urban blight, lots of jobs...

Glory Hole In The Tea Lounge Bathroom? 

True confessions, I actually had to google the term "glory hole" when Gogo Gowanus sent me an email with this pic attached of the bathroom at the Tea Lounge (and word to the wise, DO NOT do that shit at work) .

Anyway.

This shitty iPhone pic has actually helped me achieve the impossible...I'm now even MORE grossed out about the bathroom at the Tea Lounge than I already was (and FYI, I was already at like a 11.2 code red level of grossness).

And no I don't know if this actually *is* a Glory Hole or not, ppl but isn't the possibility of it enough?

[and for the record, Gogo swore he did not investigate things any further than takin this pic].

BREAKING: Fios In Park Slope...It's A Reality

As y'all know (cause I won't stfu about it), I'm a new FiOS customer. And just to follow up: IT STILL TOTALLY FUCKING RULES.

I feel like one of those 11-year-old kids who was living in a state run orphanage, with no hope and no future and then my ass got adopted by Daddy Warbucks. The tennis court is the left and the swimming pool is to the rear, btchz!

So here's the thing. I've been getting emails and calls and tweets and questions about why Fios isn't on your block, and his block, and their block and when is it gonna be in S. Slope and N. Slope and so finally I decided to check!
