I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

Nice MTA Lady Announcer Voice:  ”Due to inclement weather, train platforms may be slippery.  And also, FUCK YOUR COMMUTE.  This train will now move slower than the Underground Railroad.  Happy Black History Month.”

     That awful girl and her bougie apartment search has been failed by her parents.

image

I ignored the New York Times story about Vanessa Csordas-Jenkins because it was all over the Internet and everyone was already saying what I wanted to say.  If you want quiet, don’t live in a city.  If you don’t like the subway, don’t live in NYC.  If you can’t live with people, jump off the face of the Earth.

Can we address her parents real quick though?

     Harvard is trying to understand racial bias on Airbnb.

I just finished reading this article about racial bias among Airbnb users in NYC and the whole thing dances around the issue.  I always get a little chuckle out of watching someone dance around an obvious answer just because it’s uncomfortable.

Properties on Airbnb by black people are posted with lower prices in order to compete with postings by white owners.  You can dance around it, but the reason is because the renters assume black people live in bad neighborhoods.  It’s really not rocket science and it doesn’t take a Harvard study to figure it out.

     Is NYC’s carriage industry that bad for the horses?

image

When De Blasio won the election for mayor of NYC, one of his first promises was to rid NYC of its horse-drawn carriages and a lot of his supporters applauded.  His supporters are liberal and liberals tend to be in favor of animal rights.  Since my Internet bubble mainly consists of liberals, all of the stories I read about it were in favor of De Blasio’s decision.

I’d never really thought about it before, and since I hadn’t, I want to play Devil’s Advocate with one of the Opinion pieces from CNN.

     I don’t understand mean drag queens.

Real question here, because I could be wrong.  Do I look like Lil Jon?

image  image

In case you can’t tell, that’s Lil Jon on the left and me on the right with  Mocha Lite.  Granted, I definitely don’t look my best and my hair was a mess because I had been drinking off and on for 13 hours at that point, but it’s not the worst picture I’ve ever taken.  I hate being in pictures anyway unless I’m really drunk or really excited to meet someone, and last night I was both.

But why did this random drag queen have to tell everybody in the club I looked like Lil Jon?

     A concise little overview of the Chris Christie GW Bridge scandal.

image

By now, everybody with even the slightest interest in current events has seen headline after news story after magazine feature about Chris Christie and some **scandal.** There is a lot of information about the fallout and theories about why it happened, but my question when I first got wind of the story was WHAT happened in the first place?

So let me tell you WHAT the way I wish it had been explained to me.

That sound you hear in the distance is the collective groan from millions of Americans who once again made New Year’s Resolutions to get hot and sexy by summer and will now be face-deep in donut heaven for the next month instead.
