How I Feel About the G Train: A Photo Essay

Well, that about sums it up.

What enthralling things are you all up to this weekend?  (I hope they don't involve the G train.)  Let your crazy selves loose in the comments.

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?

Who Gives A Shit: Dirty Little Secrets of the Work-At-Home Crowd?

Now I know that there are benefits of working from home but I found something out yesterday so appalling that I've decided to break with my limited anti-embarrassment clause to bring it to your attention this fine morning. For the record, yes, those Christmas boxers ARE clean.

"PARKSLOPE:" Yer Doin' It Wrong

We've got a new neighbor in town, Center Slopers: the Parkslope Eatery.  Yes, as I am used to filtering my life through an AP Stylebook and painstaking line edits on a daily basis with my real world job, I cringe as I write "Parkslope."  I suppose I won't ask the question as to whether these guys are locals.

I've been watching this place get built for a while, and, as I walked by the other day and saw it'd opened up (Seventh Ave at 5th Street), I became irrationally angry at its sign.  (My lack of a life/where I expend my emotional effort is not a point of contention with regards to this post, so move right along, please.)  I'm willing to forgive these guys because a cursory peek inside revealed a make-your-own-salad counter (though I've yet to try it, or even walk in for that matter), but I guess take this as a word of advice to you potential business owners: Like, use spell check 'n' shit.

Anyone have any additional details on this joint?  Thumbs up/down?
