Today

So the move was a success. My two cousins drove me up. I would have NEVER been able to drive that UHAUL trailer thru NYC traffic. Bushwick is not Williamsburg. It's another world. It's where the blacks and hispanics who can't handle the New-New York are penned up. There are still signs of the the ever-widening gentrification even out here.

I am PRO gentrification by the way. What's wrong with a "nicer" New York? I don't see the poor as quaint peasants in some Millet painting. They are by and large a pain the ass. Unruly, ugly, mean etc.

Anyway, the job is going well. The roommate travels alot but we seem to have bonded.

Willliamsburg is soooo crowded and YOUNG. I mean ten years ago I was in that age range too, but now I feel like a creepy middle aged guy. Tried Greenpoint bars, COCO66 is pretty cool but the simple truth is the Brooklyn thing is mostly a never-never land to delay ageing and extend adolescence as long as possible. That's why reminders of the real world like high-RENT freaks people out.

hiatus

Moved into new digs 08/13. Don't have home internet hookup so haven't been able to supply that much content. I am currently slacking off at work to input this. I am thinking about buying a laptop. But that's alot of bread to worry about a blog no one is reading yet. But gimme time. They will hear from me loud and clear in this town. I aint kiddin' :)

Politics

Adult life is an extension of High School
1. The really cool, beautiful kids were in Sports and Music and Theater.
"Oh Mr Namath you got a blow-job from an intern at Jets Corporate? For shaaaame."
2. The Art People "may be cool" but they don't give a fuck what YOU think, which makes them kind of cool.
3. Student Government was nerds. But GOOD students. What has changed?

PRADAISM




Pradaism..give me your pretty boys your skinny girls..
your toys of the new world.
Pradaism..give me your surfaces
your flatness, your abject Leonardo Drews, and Anselm Keifers.
Pradaism..give me your "rightness". Your bright shiny blonde blueboods from East Hampton
Your ultra-chic DJ's from Kenya.
Pradaism..give the power to shop. A wife with a foreign name and a pedigree.
