MLS fines Beckham for action toward fan →
Prospect Park Trashed! →
We threw A’s annual BBQ with our friends Michael and Brenda and this year was different as some “party planning” company with “ventures” in their name (never trust companies with ‘ventures’ as part of their name) threw what amounted to an illegal rave in the park. Now I’m not an old fogey and I didn’t mind all the people, music and food but I...
Naked Cowboy to run for NYC Mayor →
Prediction: The nude dude makes all his money on tips and probably doesn’t report it to the IRS. Bloomberg will point out that all those running for office will have to report their income (based on a law from the 90s) and this naked hillbilly will bow out. - G
How children become bilingual →
A and I already discussed. We want Bean’s future nanny to speak Espanol. When we took refresher classes last year for our trip to South America it took forever to relearn. And starting in 6th grade is way too late. In this world, it’s important to speak 2 languages. - G
Wrong way in bike lane: To the d-bag who told me to shut the F up and get a life...– A and I speak about this all the time! I’m tired of people who don’t follow laws when they ride their bike. And guess what, I’m one of the “rare” New Yorkers who has lived here 13 years (meaning I’m not some new jack newbie who lives here for 2 years and thinks...
Beckham returns to LA Galaxy, confronts fans who... →
My favorite sign was the one that read, “23: Repent.” If I were a Galaxy fan I’d be pissed. They didn’t need a superstar to make their team better. In fact, their team is terrible as a result of having him and $19,000 a year defenders. - G
Save Pulse 87.7 FM! →
A lot of old industry friends of mine work at the last remaining dance radio station in NYC. I hope it stays around. Although I don’t listen to radio (except for NPR) that much anymore, I can see how this is an important outlet especially for its homebase in Brooklyn. - G
I guess when A tells me to cool it on the swearing... →
A lot of people are doing very well at making very little money. It’s not a club...– Sony Corp. Chief Executive Howard Stringer, when asked about the success of Twitter and other social networking sites. LA Times Sony had negative net income last year, and has nearly doubled that loss in the first quarter of this year alone. Sir Howard Stringer is a moron. Join the club of...
I actually think most women are at their most...
jgh: But I’m an odd duck. So true. Allison looks amazing at 9 months. Her hair, her skin, even her little “bump.” :) - G
"Dear Old People Who Run the World, My generation... →
I’ve been stating this for ages. There is no battle between black and white or men and women but old farts and young people upset about the world they’ve been handed. And old isn’t an age. I meet people in their sixties who are very cutting edge and have done their best to not live a greedy life. Age is a “state of mind.” - G
wishes the people who are falling all over themselves to get to MJ’s memorial would show the same passion about things like voting, politics, the environment, and civil rights. our culture is WAY too celebrity focused. get a grip, people, and rise up about things that actually matter in this world. G’s response: I wonder how many people who are there actually voted in the last...
