Cool Or Not Cool: Asking the Brooklyn Museum to Pull Crucifix Video?

An exhibition called “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,” opens later this week at the Brooklyn Museum, and includes a video by David Wojnarowicz that's got the Brooklyn Dioceses’s collars in a bunch.

The video includes a 12 second clip of ants crawling over a wooden crucifix. Last week Brooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio wrote a letter to the big wigs at the museum asking it not be included because it’s “offensive to many people of faith.” The Brooklyn Museum denied the request (unlike the pansies at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery last year). Though upset that the show will go on uncensored, the Catholic League has stated they will not protest the grand opening. How nice of them.

COOL OR NOT COOL: Tricking Your Kid Into Thinking You Ate All Their Halloween Candy?

Look: I know that Halloween was over days ago and all you btchz probably have your Christmas trees up-n-shit already, but I have literally never laughed so hard in my life.

Apparently Jimmy Kimmel asked his viewers to play a horrific yet hilarious trick on their kids by telling them that they ate all of their Halloween candy. ALL OF IT. No more candy for you, little Stella! Suck it Ezra! Better luck next year, Sufjan!

Furthermore, Jimmy K asked them to videotape the whole thing as it went down.

Needless to say, the results are nothing short of spectacular.

Yeah, so I vote cool.

Cool or Not Cool: Muni-Meters On 8th Avenue?

Call it progress. Call it a pain in the ass. The single-space parking meters on 8th Avenue are going the way of Kim Kardashians sham marriage. DUNZO. And the progress comes with a higher price tag! The new muni-metered spots installed on Monday morning will now cost 25 cents per 15 minutes, whereas the old single-spot meters were 25 cents per 20 minutes. You do the math.

According to Park Slope Patch, 20 meters will dot the 3-block stretch, which seems excessive. The solar-powered babies will accept major credit cards, quarters, New York City Parking Cards and $1 coins, because we all have a shitload of Sacagaweas laying around.

Cool Or Not Cool: Letting Your Dog Pee in the street? 

We recently received an email from FiPS reader Dave, who had a messy run-in with his fellow Slope residents while walking his dog: 
Walked my dog on Polhemus St in Park Slope. I let my dog do 3 drops of pee inside a barren tree pit. Two people got out of their cars (I guess they were waiting for the street sweeper) to yell at my audacious ignorance of the purpose of  the "fence" of the tree pit, and that urine destroys trees. I was totally taken aback. They were shouting, and it seemed like this was a VERY important issue to them.

COOL OR NOT COOL: Extend-a-Leashes For Ur Dog? 

Honestly, this is basically just an opportunity to let all of you dog hating mofos go crazy in the comments with your extend-a-leash rants.

For the record, I hate the shit out of them too...and I have a goddamned dog.
