Just Who Do We Think We Are?

No one outside of New York gives a shit about New York. I don’t care what we do or don’t do, interest in New York (especially New York City) is confined solely to political convenience. See “9/11″ and “Ground Zero Mosque” for reference. So no, I don’t think that same-sex marriage passing in New York [...]

An Idea for Dickish Performance Art

As you no doubt know by now, New York passed the same-sex marriage law. For us observers who simply went to our jobs all week with awareness of this bill sort of hovering in the backgrounds of our minds, it felt like a long wait. I thought for a while that they were trying to [...]

Some Self-flagellating Thoughts

I know. I’ve been remiss. Lax. Not writing. Well, the truth is I am writing. In fact, I’m writing a lot. All day most days. I guess that’s the perils of having a “creative” job. I put creative in quotes because I’m still rather judgmental about marketing and communications. I’ve been known to say that [...]

A New Weiner Prediction

I swear I’d started writing this before Titivil beat me to it. A few days ago I predicted that Anthony Weiner will still become mayor eventually. I don’t necessarily walk away from that prediction. But I have a new thought about his immediate future: Anthony Weiner will become a pundit. And I think that, despite [...]

East River Ferry: In Theory, a Good Idea

There’s just no damn good way for me to get from Queens to Brooklyn, home of my place of employment (sometimes known as a “job”). So I received news of the East River Ferry with some excitement. The ferry landing in DUMBO isn’t terribly far from my office, and traveling on the East River is [...]

Sunnyside Has a Ton of Old Queens

I spent a chunk of time this morning at Starbucks, using the reliable internet connection, while the missus sat around and waited for Time Warner to come fix ours. The window they gave us was a very convenient “any time between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.” That’s longer than my workday, Dickheads. Anyway, the missus [...]

My Weiner Prediction

Like everyone, I’ve probably seen more than enough of Anthony Weiner’s pectoral muscles, not to mention his bulging boxer briefs. While Republicans crow that he’s finished and Democrats fecklessly struggle over how best to respond, with most political insiders (whoever they fuck they are) saying that Weiner won’t recover, I have my own prediction: Anthony [...]

Kansas Leads the Way Again!

Kansas has become the first state in the union to eliminate its funding for the arts. Thank you, Governor Sam Brownback, for this Dickhead move. I expect nothing less of you. I’m a product of Kansas’s public arts programming. I don’t know if those programs actually received funding from the Kansas Arts Council, but the [...]
