  1. at least the bronx kingsbridge armory conversion to a hockey center plan is still alive: https://nypost.com/2019/02/19/why-amazons-queens-fiasco-is-reminiscent-of-an-old-bronx-flub/
  2. yeah, as the song goes, invisible man at the scene with an invisible voice. to the public, but musicians knew him well. i went thru a phase of listening to everything alex chiton ever did when he died. he is very idiosyncratic and just amazing. i never read that book about him though, thats a good reminder to do so. here is something recent about him: https://dangerousminds.net/comments/big_stars_alex_chilton_and_his_darkly_upbeat_song_about_the_aids_crisis_no_#disqus_thread -- and for sure a big +1 to reviving the upbeat show -- it would be amazing if someone would do that!
  3. also a reminder that when you mention hot button issues and words like the word trump for example you immediately attract professional russian military trolling and that ilk who promote divisiveness across the usa. so be good and don't fall for bait from low post count strangers. here is a recent article about that -- at least describing what a serious and more and more organized problem it is: LIFE IN PIXELS DEC. 26, 2018 How Much of the Internet Is Fake? Turns Out, a Lot of It, Actually. By Max Read ...How much of the internet is fake? Studies generally suggest that, year after year, less than 60 percent of web traffic is human; some years, according to some researchers, a healthy majority of it is bot. For a period of time in 2013, the Times reported this year, a full half of YouTube traffic was “bots masquerading as people,” a portion so high that employees feared an inflection point after which YouTube’s systems for detecting fraudulent traffic would begin to regard bot traffic as real and human traffic as fake. They called this hypothetical event “the Inversion.”... http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/12/how-much-of-the-internet-is-fake.html
  4. what an excellent chart that is. I've never seen anything like it. and you wonder why? its so clear and concise. a great at a glance guide for anyone shopping for office space downtown.
  5. ^ I noticed that too, but you know when you have a catchy term, you have to use it.
  6. the kaiser finally went down for the presumably very fashionable big sleep: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/19/obituaries/karl-lagerfeld-dead.html edit since my spouse just told me a hilarious karl lagerfeld quote she saw on the twitter: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”
  7. interesting that sherrod brown get the thumb's up from rich lowery, tool of the right wing ny post: https://nypost.com/2019/02/18/in-the-era-of-trump-and-aoc-sherrod-brown-looks-like-a-smart-moderate/
  8. austin keeps on steadily chugging along -- this hotel is completed.
  9. i saw the next domino sugar plant redevelopment tower in brooklyn is well underway.
  10. yes its a great air rights assemblage, but the problem is the luxury market is soft and the other midtown supertalls are about to come online. its a large lot so it could get chopped to two rental towers or something boring if the buyer gets tired of sitting on it. its up for auction at the moment so we will see. and we will have the best perch to watch as its right next to my spouses' office building.

    Then & Now

    ^oh no wow that shot is so depressing. and the new stuff looks so terribly unpedestrian friendly. i had no idea that gr had all that either, but also not surprized. i just can't bear to click thru the link for anything more like that. i have seen they are doing good urbanity again there these days, so there is hope for the future and i would like to leave it like that lol.
  12. hows about rule #4 never play with drones: https://nypost.com/2019/02/19/indians-trevor-bauer-is-worlds-worst-boyfriend-i-have-three-rules/
  13. watch 16 y.o. alex chilton and the box tops mime their hit song for the zillionth time on the upbeat show in cleveland 1967. the results are pretty funny. you'll also see why children by million loved alex when he came around. anywaaaaay. bonus -- box tops and left banke band members post in the comment section.
  14. check out this interesting and surprisingly timeless looking 1971 barcelona pop nugget.
  15. danzig's popularity is a conspiracy -- samhain was the best glenn danzig band.
