Park Slope Parents and "The Free Willie Nelson" Mobile

Just when it was eroding fast, my faith in the awesomeness of Park Slope was restored this morning. I love that The Free Willie Nelson is parked on 8th avenue, almost as much as I love Erica for posting those ginormous man boobs below. 

Gives me hope on a day I woke up to the news that my Park Slope Parents nemesees (?) nemesises? WHATEV...  that Nancy, "parenting guru/moderator," and her humorless cronies are starting a Park Slope Parents blog. God bless 'em. 

Louise rolled out the welcome mat over at OTBKB, even offering a tray of daiquiris. God knows, they could use a few drinks over there.

Anyone else stuck here like me?

BroBos in Paradise

A dedicated FIPS reader sent a link to this Observer article:

"Perhaps you remember the New York Times columnist David Brooks' coinage BoBos—short for Bourgeois Bohemians? Those latte-slurping, SUV-driving, Pottery Barn-shopping, NPR-listening creatures of the Clinton era? Ms. Hambleton and her ilk represent a new variation on the species: Brooklyn Bourgeois Bohemians. BroBos! Young, comfortable and inclined toward creativity, they enjoy a utopian-seeming existence marked by strolls down tree-lined streets, carefully chosen foods and leisurely weekends spent in coffee bars and parks. An existence only occasionally marred by the realization that this is not the hopped-up New York they came to conquer."

In the same week that Gawker taught us that Brooklyn isn't cool anymore b/c everyone talks about it too fucking much, comes news that we are all BroBos....or wannabe BroBos Well, I guess not all of us, but...eh, who the fuck am I kidding: ALL OF US.

Jonathan Safran Foer Won An Award!

Only it was a Moby Award for "Most Annoying Performance by an Author in a Book Trailer."

BWHAAAAAAAAAAA.

Now we wrote about this book trailer mooooonths ago. And srsly, if you watch it, you will feel compelled to scratch your eyes out, put your eyeballs in a bowl and then eat em with a spoon....it's *that* bad. But now I'm actually starting to feel sorry for this annoying schmo. Cause a few years ago everyone loved the shit outta him, and now all everyone does is hate his ass and trade JSFisms...shit, we even have one in our own FIPS diktionary.

Maybe we should invent a new word? Foerdom: After moving through a variety of emotional stages, the act of becoming so bored with JSF and JSF news, one actually begins to feel sorry for the dude.

Keep on keeping on, Park Slope

Oh, you know, just some chalk-graffiti encouragement found on 8th Ave.
