BLINGED in Park Slope: 11215 Yourself

Just in case your Food Coop tee isn't enough of a broadcast to the outside world that you live in The Slope and you've like, lost your Neighborhoodie or something (O HAI 2007 how u doin), one Esty seller's got your number.  (Okay, my own puns are officially making me nauseated.)

Zip code necklaces.  Because everyone knows how we do in the 11215/11217.  And if they don't, they better learn.

Thoughts, gang?

FIPS CARES: Dogz Up For Adoption

That's right, sometimes we care, and we're not ashamed to admit it. I came across TWO great puppies from two separate families who have to give their pooches up because of change in their living situations. Just so happens they both have a little Lab in them!

The brown hairball of cuteness is Knut. He is a 4 year old Lab/Pit mix. He's a real sweetheart, who loves other dogs and kids, but ain't so hot on cats. Knut has been living on a farm for the last few years; his fam just relocated to Brooklyn and now they have to give him up... So they're looking to find a new loving home for Knut. If you know anyone who can help, e-mail Michael at michaeldolannyc-at-gmail-dot-com.

Now, if none of you bitchz has ever known the singular joy of owning an older dog, you have been MISSING OUT. Meet Luca, a sweet 8-year-old Lab mix who lives with a family on Roosevelt Island. In his aged wisdom, Luca is great with kids, people and dogs. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on all vaccines. Obvs it's very hard for the family to let Luca go (I mean, dude's MICROCHIPPED, ppl!), but their child has severe allergies. I have a spesh place in my heart for the older dogs, since I know how grateful they are for a place to just chill out and be loved (but mostly chill out!) If interested or have any questions and would like to meet Luca, you should email at Susan at sarcelay-at-verizon-dot-net

Let's do something to help these pooches! Why should you give a shit? Cuz we may be helping your ass next.

The Stench of Summer: Yummy Yum Pee Yoo

Summer in the city stinks. Literally. As in, this heat wave has created malodorousness on 7th avenue alone that has reached noxious levels.

I want an odor advisory put out.

What I didn't know until Gothamist told me (fine, via The Wall Street Journal), is that there is actually a division of the city's Environmental Protection Agency that investigates the manifest odor complaints and hands out violations for the stinkiest perps.

CREEP CENTRAL: ANDY WARHOL AT THE BK MUSEUM

Okay, okay.  Am I the only one who finds Andy Warhol totally creepy?  The high voice, the fact that he looked like a cross between Skeletor and the guy from Tales From the Crypt

I get that his contributions to art were important (viva la soup can!), but goddamn! Creepy!

Regardless of my opinions, the Brooklyn Museum has a show on him running from now until September, showing 50 of his works from the last decade of his life.  It's called "Andy Warhol: The Last Decade."  

Who's gone?  Who's going?
