Ad-derall: Skechers Shape-Ups


Ad-deral is a column in which we rant and riff on the ridiculous ads we're subjected to while trapped on the subway.  From the borderline racist local businesses (1-800-MARGARITA Divorce Attorneys) to the condescending national brands that pretend to know what it's like to ride the goddamned F train every day (Snickers, Delta), we'll tackle them all with the same smug outlook that has made us totally (not) famous.
 
It's a new year, so everyone is desperately holding tight to their resolutions to lose weight and pretending like they're not going to spend this weekend drinking 10,000 beers and placing 2AM orders with Dominos.

Wedding Crashers: A Wedding Fair For Cool Brides

Wedding fairs normally suck ass.

Trust me: I used to own a wedding related biz, and I've been to every single one of those bitches. There's usually lots of lame vendors, with all the same tired ideas you've seen and heard about a million times before.

Another Fire In Park Slope [12th Street btwn 5th & 6th] 

Yikes. Received this tip from a FIPS reader last night who describes another residential fire that went down in the Slope:

I'm not normally a rubbernecker, but the house right near my apartment building was on fire and I just watched FDNY put it out from my window.

First, I hope everyone is ok (didn't see any ambulances, but my view is partially blocked - did see folks in their PJs outside).

Second, but no less important, just wanted to remind everyone how awesome FDNY and NYPD are.  Whether you're fucked in Park Slope, or fucked anywhere else in the city, these guys (and gals) put their lives on the line to keep us safe.

I can't speak for the people in the burning house (but I certainly hope they agree) - I hope you guys just mention a big thank to all the brave people in the FDNY & NYPD.  Thanks!

ps - The Fire was on 12th street between 5th & 6th aves.

Word on the FDNY/NYPD Props! Anyone else have any more scoop on the fire?

Co-Op Board Wars: Blood on the Carpet

Deep, deep in my heart (I can't even know the depths of it), I hate my co-op board.

Hate.

HATE!

I haven't felt so passionately hateful since adolescence.

Why, you ask? It's simple: Paint and pendants.
