WHASSUP: Week of June 7th

Some cool shit is going on this week!

*Brokelyn is having their First Annual Charity Ball/Raffle of the Century on Thursday, June 10th and its gonna be bangin! There's all sorts of giveaways and proceeds will go to help pay for their writers (and to support the Brooklyn Public Library). You can RSVP on Facebook or here on Evenbrite.

*I'm gonna be on a panel for Internet Week! Blog Hard: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly of Online Publishing. Emily Gould is going to be moderating and Jauntsetter, VendrTV and Brooklyn Based are also going to be in the house. Also this shit is *almost* sold out, ppl. So if you want in, you best RSVP pronto.

Ok, so now we're gonna try something new: I'm constantly getting emails from all sorts of bitches telling me about cool shit going on in the nabe. Only, I get so many emails, I don't check that shit enough, and stuff sits there for days, and by the time I see it its too late. So if you know of something cool going on this week, post it in the comments. If you have a cool event coming up, post it in the comments, yo! This way, I don't have feel to feel guilty about not posting your shit and YOU don't have to miss any good shit! win/win.

MISSING CAT?

Ok, so we always post about missing dogs, but here's some possible scoop on a possible missing cat from one of our loyal readers:

"A while back, I saw a poster on 3d St. for a missing grey & white cat (it's gone now) and this morning, I spotted what is likely said cat, sans collar, on 5th Ave. by Key Foods. He/she is clearly a house cat, looks maybe 4 yrs old, has a white face w/ grey/black fur on her head and back. She wasn't in the mood to be picked up & carried, but I fed her & tried to get her to follow me home. No dice. If you post this, and anyone has seen that same poster, have them pass the word along!"

Anyone?

We don't have a pic, unfortch, but let us know if you have any scoop.

Lessons In Park Slope Douchery

click to enlargeWaaaaay back when, before any of you bitches had probably ever even heard of FIPS, we featured the work of Pete Johnson. In case you've never seen it, the dude rules your face...HARD.

Recently, everyone on the interwebz discovered his clever "Douche series" again, and lo and behold: he's got a Park Slope douche! This Park Slope douche has two kids, Phinneas & Calliope and and Phinneas wants to be an Acai Berry Afficianado OR an AIDS quilter when he grows up! They have a Jamaican nanny (LAME: everyone knows its alll about the Tibeten nannies now) and he drives a Prius.

This shit might be the best thing I've ever seen in my life.

(via Gothamist and everyone else who wrote in about this shit).

FIPS CARES: Don't Ask, Don't Tell Can Go Suck It

Look: I don't want to get into a whole convo on this issue cause if you think "don't ask, don't tell" is a good rule for our country to have, then I think you're an asshole. Bottom line is: Now that the house voted to repeal, we're close to coming correct on this ish and we all need to pitch in.

So if you're NOT an asshole, you should totally sign Prez O's petition, and get other non-asshole peeps you know to sign it too so that we can officially repeal this bullshit once and for all.

Let's make it happen bleeding heart liberal hippie haven Park Slope!
