Why the hell isn’t anything in the morning posting on the Home Page on time?????
I went in through:
Slightly faster than yesterday which was slightly faster than the day before.
“I think I can. I think I can. I think I can”
So I was watching the news last night and they played some video/tape of Michelle Bachmann’s husband.
He’s SOOOOO gay. LMAO. HAHHAA. Pretty clear now why he throws out all that anti-gay rhetoric – he’s battling a strong urge to go on Silverdaddies.
DH, Jon Stewart did a bit on same last night.
haha awesome – i have it DVR’d
Yes, definitely gay. poor woman. No wonder she is how she is.
guess she could have a Clinton-like Intern incident if she got the pres gig
Imagine if she won and he became “first lady!” I bet he’d turn the White House into that mess of a place we saw on here yesterday…the “palace.”
I was wondering how long til Mr. gets jammed up and caught cheating with a rent boy.
I think Jackal might be back today.
I’ll teach him how to put sp aces in his c uss words, so he can freely express himself.
HAPPY BASTILLE DAY.
What is bastille day?
she’s 2nd in the polls, even though she’s very anti-gay and her husband is a gay guy who tries to make people not gay by praying with them?
does not compute
It’s a total mind fu ck, DH.
it’s pretty horrifying – and the front running is a guy who was the architect for the obamacare prototype and is MORMON!!
although i’m sure repubs were equally as horrified in 2007 when the frontrunners were a black guy and a scary woman
that’s why I was asking who is the likely candidate to run against Obama – ie if Obama is so bad, shouldn’t the stars be coming out to whoop him vs waiting for 2016?
This is where I think the calculus gets a bit tricky. Obama hatred is so high on GOP side that, whoever gets the GOP nomination, if that person loses to Obama, then that person will have no chance in 2016 primary.
but that presumes they dont really believe in the stuff they’re saying – ie that obama is messing up big time and is really vulnerable in the ’12 election
I’m sure a rent boy can be produced who will say he slept with him.
Oh, it’s coming alright. I was just wondering how soon!
DIBS, I had to do my OT URL trick else I would not be able to see anything beyond Thursday Links threat.
It’s up now, mfl. (nh)
So if she became President would we see a lot more use of “No homo?”
I know a gay Mormon. he was excommunicated.
oops, the repeated extra letter trick doesn’t work when algorithm can detect offensive word – ie have to inject the letters in between
m4l, just swear in Chinese. I’ll understand
mormons dont play there were a lot living in cali while i lived there
they didnt drink soda weird
I’ve never slept with a gay Mormon but i have slept with many Gay Muslims.
Sarah Palin history. Michelle Bachmann most powerful spokesperson for the cultural conservative/tea party contingent, Romney most likely to get Republican nomination, but Obama will win narrowly. There is no strong center right in the Republican party now – too fragmented. My prediction is that Obama will move inexorably to center, ala Clinton and further alienate progressives. He In retrospect you can really see what a Svengali Clinton was, able to do the dance with the Republican congress.
I couldn’t get OT no matter what w/ IE – had to use Chrome. Also had to log on.
Maybe I should do a quick search for Marcus B. on Silverdaddies!!!!!
Sitting in O’Hare, waiting to go to Florida. I now now how to save money on everything in Chicago. Best way to get to the airport. Subway. (Why did I always take cabs and Express vans? Big waste of time and money).
Arkady, it appeared about 15 minutes late for me.
tried peeking in using IE. no dice. running safari now.
Subway to O’Hare in Chicago is really great…from thee Loop, downtown. From elsewhwere, not so great
I was staying in the Loop. It worked great.
Christie is smart to wait until 2016
why would running against Hillary be any more desirable than running agains Obama? fat man loses both times.
Hey, dummy…Obama can’t run in 2016.
i know dummy, i was saying that he is probably sitting this one out becuase he knows he can’t beat obama…..but i think there is also no way he can beat hillary.
Dont see Hillary running in 2016
she’d only be 70.
Actuarially, with female life expectancy, prolly ok. As ambitious as she is (and I don’t mean that as a criticism), I just don’t see her making the run at that age. It is an exhausting and demanding job. I thought McCain was too old when he ran.
cause he honestly not very confident of beating Obama
i know this is all kinds of farcked up… but i do it on the train in the morning and i LOVE it. i just stare at people (like eye to eye), which is a total NO NO on the train. you have to do it where it’s like not a “come and f***k me” look, but more of a i f***ked you in a past life look. some people look away and think nothing of it, some people get mad uncomfortable, some people keep looking back up and down from what they are doing. im still trying to get a full on stare-down. i almost had one today. this is why i wear colored contact lenses cuz it’s more fun to do. today im wearing brialliant blue in my right eye and emerald green in my left. i look like a dog. next week im picking up a box of greys and browns. i dont even read on the train in the morning anymore, now i just psychologically mess with peoples heads. i dont do it on the way home tho after work, that would be weird. it’s way more fun in the morning.
If I retire in the next year, i won’t be paying ANY taxes for the next 4 years!!!!
A fitting slap in the face!!!!!
rob, I bet you wouldn’t do it on the A or C, just those trains from Park Slope with all the namby pambys on them
rob, I bet you wouldn’t do it on the A or C, just those trains from Park Slope with all the namby pambys on them
true. the c, maybe. i would never do it on the L either. or the JMZ. hey dave someone i know has a crush on you (based on your posts) LOL!!!
Reminds me of the scene in Brother From Another Planet where some guy is doing magic tricks for the alien (Joe Morton) on the uptown A. Then the train gets to 59th and he says, “Now, watch me make all the white folks disappear!” And, of course, they all leave the train when the doors open. Couldn’t do that scene now.
OK, why is my reply directly under randi’s? We responded to different posts by dibs. The threading doesn’t make sense. (Nothing against your post today, randi. It actually makes some sense. )
Except no Hillary in 2016. Too old.
no she is not!
Even w/ Chrome, update doesn’t work.
weird, not usually a problem for me, but nothing beyond links on the homepage today. Had to deep-link to get here.
update working for me on safari right now
ok…it just crapped out. never mind
real-tme update working though
when chrome fails, try brass. then again, brushed nickel may be better
Has anyone looked at that little colored box to see how much traffic patterns have changed since the new format?
in the forum yesterday someone said traffic is way down
brownstoner traffic? who would know that and say it on the forum? is web site traffic public information?
i’ve noticed this site works the better on the more ghetto your computer is. if youre all high end, it’s gonne be slow and jankity.
One of my best friends in the industry (and in my life) was a Morman. He was Chinese and a colleague. He grew up in Arizona and his wife was Morman, so he converted. He became an Elder in the church, but had a kind of selective way of observing the partying rules. He ran a research division of a financial institution. He loved to socialize, was a big organizer of company parties and I used to kick ass with him as a partner playing pool in bars downtown after work.
One of the most heartbreaking things of my life was to find out that my scrappy funny friend wasn’t returning my phone calls because he had died from a heart attack while playing tennis.
One thing I have to say about Mormans is that they are extremely focused business people. They value education and are honest but tough businessmen. AND they are super familiy oriented and very active in their church, which functions as a huge social support system.
He was helpful to me in everything. I was whining once about my house and the jacka$$ contractor and his stooges when he offered to get a group from his church to come over and do the last stages of the renovation. No money. They did this for one another, working on houses, doing construction. You could always be assured of help with sick elderly, with child care and fabulous support of families during times of illness death.
R.I.P John my great friend.
One of the most heartbreaking things of my life was to find out that my scrappy funny friend wasn’t returning my phone calls because he had died from a heart attack while playing tennis.
ugh that is awful. in 2001 i had tickets to go see a talk show with a friend of mine at the time. she was supposed to come into nyc. she never showed up or answered her calls all weekend so i just went there assuming maybe she’d show up. she never did. turns out she decided to kill herself that weekend by going 100 MPH into a dumpster off some highway in south jersey. then our friends in common told me her dad molested her (he was a cop) and that the kidney she had just gotten FROM HIM just months before was getting rejected from her body but she kept saying i dont want him in me anymore, i dont want him in me anymore :-/ crazytown!!!
randi, go look at the forum post. someone had a site you can look at to see the traffic trends.
I know why it’s knot working! The thread is too snarled. We need a pun fest to open the weave.
Hillary won’t run in 2016.
And saying there’s no way he would beat her is a bit moronic at this point, don’t you think???
no i don’t think so. i think hillary will follow O’s second term….back to back firsts in the white house. it just seems right.
rob…who has a crush on me???
m4l knows how to see the traffic numbers
randi, look for one about low responses on the forum. saw it last night. can’t recall title and i can’t get to the forum where i’m at.
here it is
wow! maybe it was randi. have dave check…he posted in that thread and he’d know which one to look for.
randi…i made it to the forum…second page “what’s up with forum traffic” still there
Here’s the Forum Post about bad Forum posts….
Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. I got lost in Chinatown and saw a Dead Man Walking. I felt Dazed and Confused.
i don’t understand mr b’s reluctance to adress our issues head on, with a post or something???? why the silence?
I’ve had that thought as well.
he worked so hard to create a community feel to this site and now he became the wizard behind the curtain, counting his stacks of benjamins from last week’s smorg and flea. me no likey,
ouch. not wrong, but ouch!
he worked so hard to create a community feel to this site and now he became the wizard behind the curtain,
LMFAO, more like moonface pimp.
no good answer hence better to not say anything
Silence is Golden
I forwarded that Forum Post to him this morning. he responded that he was at their offices all day yesterday and they are working on lots of “fixes.”
problem is that there shouldn’t need to be fixes!!!!!
I wonder how much he has paid them?????
I’d be pretty bent about that, too. I think the developer over-promised.
Most comparisons of site traffic before and after the change will be meaningless because of major changes in how comments are displayed, as well as changes in navigation.
Unique visitors across the site per day is the most relevant statistic that makes sense for comparison, but it does not tell you how much time the average person spent on the site.
so many IT jobs outsourced to asia – these are the problems we get.
Instead should hire unionized american people.
I think Mr. B should hire me part-time to help proj. manage this. : P
no work today?
:p :p :p :p ::::: please stop doing that after every one of your posts it’s like annoying tick. bxgirl does it too. it’s like you say something stupid and then post LOL at the end. are you 14?
run along rob. there’s a sandbox over there for you to play with yourself in.
it’s actually called Cyber Insecurity, cobble.. :p
Run along, Rob. I can’t be asked to listen/read your crap today.
the crew works out of Dumbo – when did Asia annex Dumbo?? You off your game. Think it’s time you get a PT job to keep your snark in top shape
Perfect, then I can walk to work. Mr. B, are you listening?!
muffins will be expensive at all the outlets there unless you bake them yourselves or pick some at downtown BK
I can’t see the little site counter anymore.
I just noticed that BlankSlate has a link on the page footer.
I think there is plenty of blame to be spread between them and Mr. B, but the buck must stop somewhere.
“I think there is plenty of blame to be spread between them and Mr. B, but the buck must stop somewhere. ”
It was only after the Republicans took control of the House that the site started having technical issues.
Chris Christie is a big dumb bully who will put his big fat foot in his mouth numerous times if he ever decides to run for prez.
that’s very true but homeboy has not hesitation governing his way. my biggest issue with Obama so far is he pussssssssy footing too much. Be more gangsta and just do/decide stuff. I don’t expect leaders to be always right but just that he/she be decisive in making decisions
i think this whole debt ceiling has been an eye opener for obama. i suspect he’s done trying to negotiate with the republicans and 2012 will see a correction of the mid term elections – and we’ll finally see stuff happen
Does disqus load really slowly for everyone else? Is it getting slower? I seem to remember that pages loaded much faster when the site first went up. At least on my computer.
not slow for me. I have a union computer.
Did you even ask if I survived the Bronx, bxgrl?
I saw you posting so I figured you did
You’re no longer on my list of wusses.
disqus was developed in dumbo?
I keep seeing “Please Wait” in the comment box
VERY F U C K I N G ANNOYING
Most likely the disqus servers are busy.
this is for *rob*
Pete. your union computer will be on a break soon
Just saw a few posts deleted.
That’s happened to me a few times. Just the other night when Snaps and I were racing for 700.
““That’s when he got very agitated, seemingly, and said that he had sat there long enough, and that no other president — Ronald Reagan wouldn’t sit here like this — and that he’s reached the point where something’s got to give,” Cantor told reporters after the meeting. “He said to me, ‘Eric, don’t call my bluff. I’m going to the American people with this.”"
cantor is such a little b i a t c h
i would love to punch him in the b a l l s
Seems McConnell and Boehner both have their problems with little Eric.
Ooh! I LIKE it!
FINALLY Obama is standing behind something and not backing down.
exactly. be more gangsta. rule with iron fist whenever possible
The last thing the Repubs need is a pi ssed off Obama on TV making speeches again.
yeah, Obama will throw out more s h i t like “I can’t guarantee your SS checks.”
Low level political crap. Change we can believe in.
more low level than holding the economy hostage to score cheap political points?
how is that any more low level than McConnell’s BS?
Because Obama came in on a supposed “high horse.”
what? so you blast him for not sticking by his beliefs, then when he gets down and dirty he is supposed to stay on his high horse?
oh i forgot – you’re just for whoever makes u more money.
You’re learning, dh.
you are outnumbered here as you are in the general electorate. more american support Obama’s belief that the best plan is a combo of taxes and spending cuts.
He is on a high horse- he’s President..
At least Mcconnell and Boehner are delivering what you’d expect.
[waiting for the "Republicans are so stubborn" comments]
The Republicans have insisted they will not compromise. The President keeps trying to find ways to get everyone to compromise for the good of the country- and the republicans are complaining.
Typpical, bxgrl. it takes two to compromise. Those statements are just dumb.
Obama offered a HUGE compromise and they walked away from it!
You think they’re dumb because they are true and make republicans look bad. too bad, dibs.
what cantor and his ilk are doing is likely to cause dibs to lose money…..that is why thinks boehner, mcconnell, obama should let themselves be held hostage.
WRONG, randi. Obama’s support level is currently 37%
that’s less than 50%
says who? i didn’t vote
Not according to the polls I read- more like 47%
i am not talking overall support, i am talking about what should be done in the current debt crisis. read this moron:
GOP No-Tax Stance Is Outside Political Mainstream
what is the supposed compromise?
they are holding the debt ceiling hostage to budget deal.
that’s still less than half, dummy!!!!!
those polls are meaningless so far from an election and even close to an election they are wrong….wasn’t it about 50/50 going into nov 2008 and O came out on top by of 7 points?
If you noticed, I disputed your actual number, not whether or not it is above 50%. But i guess with your low level of reading comprehension you can’t be bothered to understand even the simplest post. BTW- it still beats the approval ratings for the Republicans by a wide margin.
DIBS face it – your buddies are doing the one thing they shouldn’t have done before the election….light a fire under Obama’s butt
lol bxgrl – must be a fox news poll dibs saw
or Andrew Beitbart’s
Obama will revert to his true self in a day or two…the narcicism will be out in full force.
“Obama will revert to his true self in a day or two…the narcicism will be out in full force. ”
Cantor (actually any Republican) will revert to his true self in a day or two…the narcicism will be out in full force.
Very creative, bxgrl.
besides, they have until July 25 to do a deal.
if any of you think it won’t get done, you are far dumber than I imagined.
can you please just remove the insults from every one of your posts?
No expensive muffin this morning, Cobble???
No. A. I’m not in Soho today. B. I bought a scone from Union Market for $2.00 when I shopped last night.
yes, bxgrl. Put another way, THE MAJORITY DISAPPROVES.
Actually that’s not necessarily what it means. there is always a +- factor and an “undecided” number. More pertinent, a lesser number than that approve of what the republicans are doing. What’s that tell you dave?
Oh, almost forgot: CAPICHE?
You heard about the “meat problems” at Union Market????
No, do tell…what’s up?
“I don’t trust this President… He doesn’t know how to make those cuts. He’s never had to do this before. He’s always just been one to spend other people’s money even if that money is just borrowed money or printed out of thin air. He’s never had to exercise real executive authority like that.”
DIBS, please defend her.
sarah palin? you mean the career quitter/loser/laughing stock?
randi, please pull your head out of your a s s
did you buy a meat scone?
No, cranberry. Really delicious, even a day old.
i hate god because he cursed me with a penis. but i dont want to be a woman. what a conundrum!
Even worse if it’s a small one, rob.
I hate The Cranberries.
Some butcher was providing proof in the form of invoices that UM was not ordering all natural, all organic, blah, blah meat and just selling regular stuff.
Oooh, bad bad bad! I’ll go Google, but post a link if you see one.
It was in The Links either Monday or last week.
Just found the NYP article.
Can you post the link?
Here you go…
the cranberries? the band? one hit wonders fo sho. what the hell made u think of them?
i randomly thought of avril lavigne on the way to work yesterday morning and she was on “americas got talent” last night – she sux
the cranberries had a ton of hits and like 5 albums didnt they? ew the 90s.
avril <3 youtube avril parody "black friend" best mock moonface video ever
I think that Morton’s doesn’t use prime meat, either. Had leftover & it was not up to leftovers from Sparks.
just marry a Bobbitt type woman and your problem solved.
elena bobbitt and that man she cut off’s dick… did they have a section 8 apartment and food stamps? cuz that’s what im looking into. aparently they dont give a crap if you are a male or havent sharted out kids. grrrrrrr SCREW U GOD!!!!!
G*d just emailed me. He’s not too pleased with you either. : P
God just texted me, he told me you make really great (tho dry) twatwaffles.
G*d just emailed me. He wants you to STFU.
That’s the cause and effect I talked about yesterday
There’s a cute Asian guy sitting behind Bernanke during his testimony
what you think of the 2 Asian dudes on the Fox dancing show?
I haven’t seen the Fox dancing show. I have better things to do in my evenings.
[Quickly googling Fox dancing images]
those 2 dudes are you flava – ie if you have nothing better to do/watch
rob, I suspect you make too much for Section 8. just because you can’t manage it wisely, don’t expect the gov’t to bail you out.
Stop the smoking.
when is it on???
they performed yesterday and results today
any slopers know anything about this bldg?
> any slopers know anything about this bldg?
Oh, that’s the building next to the KFC. How much do you love the smell of fried chicken?
thanks snark – that probably explains why it’s 500 bux less a month than anything else on 4th ave
It also only has 1 bath, which is almost unheard of for a modern 2 bedroom.
I did not see a floor plan, but the pics make it look small.
yeah – i’ve sorta given up on getting a modern 2br/2ba for 3k. Stuff at the Arias is about 4k, and stuff in N brooklyn is 4500 – 5k.
i’ve kinda resigned myself to normal 2 bedrooms / 1 baths in the slope for 2500 – 3000, but that one stood out because it had a W/D
In all my looking last year, I found exactly one 2br/2ba for 3K, and it was from an individual owner in a condo building.
When it was time to renew my lease this year, I looked again and found zero.
DIBS, pass me the popcorn. I’m passing over the cold saki now. this will get ugly real fast
G*d just emailed me
LOL…Cobble thinks she’s a Boston Brahmin now….
“Where the Lowells talk only to Cabots,: And the Cabots talk only to God.”
Snort. Not far from the truth, less the trust fund! : P
m4l, what night is So You Think You Can dance on???
they performed yesterday. results show tonight
WOW….Minnesota is a real mess.
guess no shot that Gov will be running in 2012 right?
Yes, a Democratic governor…being stubborn and pigheaded over the budget cuts
he can claim he inherited the mess right?
So the government has been shut down since July 1 and there’s no way for any bars and liquor stores to buy stock with their rolling licenses that end on June 30
Time to start making that bathtub gin again! : P
> Time to start making that bathtub gin again!
Speaking of, it’s time for the latest installment of Snarky’s Gin Report. So last night, I sampled four gins (again in the time honored gin & tonic form) in the following order:
1 – Hendricks
Not bad, but too flowery for my taste. I think I’m done with it.
2 – Beefeater
The most smooth and neutral, and probably my favorite. I’m a philistine, I know.
3 – Tanqueray
Probably my other favorite. Bolder than the Beefeater but not overpowering.
4 – Bombay Sapphire
I liked it less this time around. A bit too “big” (as I think dh said)
Thank you for making such noble sacrifices in the name of science.
Interesting, snarky. Of course in the interest of science I should conduct my own tests.
I appreciate your diligent and thorough report, Snark. You are nothing if not dedicated to the task! ; )
cool! you like the old school dry gins
Plymouth and Tanq Ten are both mellower gins (not considered dry, since there isn’t enough juniper in the mix) and are pretty nice in martinis.
Yes he did, from an incumbent Democratic legislature, now controlled by republicans because they overspent and over taxed.
if that’s the case, what’s results/platform upon which that former Gov is yapping that he’s president material?
They all yap like that, m4l.
no wonder they beg the fat boy to run; most of the other names are not that good
The Hot Seat has to be the LAMEST addition to this blog EVER!!! i mean worse than 3rd and Bond. who gives a s h i t about some ugly ass brokers? at least today’s entry actually live in brooklyn.
are we still playing that guessing game from last night? I can throw out he exact address today
go for it
“Lesbians Outnumber Gay Men in The Slope” thread^^^^^^^^^
KFC is a great place for picking up Filipinos.
Dear Mr B,
I have a simple feature request. Please add an “Ignore” button so I can tune out certain posters. Well, at least one certain poster…
No- the other “r”
randi, your paranoia is quite endearing. <3
make that two posters.
Anyone read the new Walkabout? Very funny.
Clemens judge calls mistrial after prosecutor shows barred evidence
Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you. : P
I would give that building a look. The KFC is across the street. Imho, its exterior is one of the best among the new buildings on 4th Ave.
I agree with Benson (I know, stop the presses). The outside looks nice, and hey, looks like the place has a terrace (for all your chicken sniffin needs).
thanks benson. i’ll give it a look. i don’t mind 4th ave at all and the KFC might actually be an amenity!! Just don’t want my crib smellin like fried chicken, hahaha.
there’s also a new bldg on 11th btw 7th and 8th that looks pretty sweet as well.
Wendy and I were commenting 2 days ago how much nicer that building looks than the one a block south.
I agree. The only thing I find “off” about that building’s exterior are the silver railings they used on the terrace.
This was playing at the deli I get my sandwich…
Remember Guru Josh????
Speaking of real estate (shocking to speak of such a topic on the OT, I know)…..
…..this morning I drove my wife to Columbia-Presbyterian on my way to work. To get back on the Henry Hudson Parkway, I drove north along Ft. Washington Ave, and then turned left onto West 181st. As I was driving through Washington Heights, it dawned on me that it has tremendous potential, particularly the area west of Broadway all the way towards the Hudson River. The stock of apartment buildings is really good – alot of elegant pre-wars that are in pretty good shape. It has winding roads and a hilly terrain that gives it a different feel than most of New York, and there are river views all over the place. Indeed the area is gentrifying already, but I think it has much more upside potential.
My nephew lives up there and loves it. Another friend also- it’s rapidly gentrifying. Very beautiful too.
So benson, are you encouraging PRESERVATION of all those pre-wars???
I have no problem with old buildings. I have a problem with people who use government to freeze development. As a person who calls himself a libertarian, I think you’ll understand.
You might arrive at a different ranking for martinis and the ranking might be different for dry and not dry.
Agreed. Martinis will require a new series of tests.
sounds like you could use some help with sampling these tests combo’s
sounds like the next PLUSA gathering should be a martini taste test!
worth repeating that I dont mind the name calling as I sip them apple martini’s. Who’s buying for the Chinaman???
you are SUCH a snob about everything
S C R E W You, randi. No one asked you.
Four Gin and Tonics in an evening?
You’re a better man than me, Snarkie.
i was thinking the same thing!
Snarky is also our resident Poet Laureate- perhaps all this testing has something to do with his talent?
Yes, and four “gay bar strength” G&Ts at that. I won’t – however – aim for four martinis. Dorothy Parker said all we need to know about that particular path…
Four Gin and Tonics is a good start for me, although it would also be my limit on a work night.
I think he’s just a lush, bxgrl, like the rest of us.
“”gay bar strength”
I learn something new everyday on the OT! What, pray tell, does “gay bar strength” mean?
Most gay bars make stronger drinks than most straight bars, or so my research would seem to indicate.
And gay or straight, the divier the bar, the stronger the drink. Generally speaking, of course. YMMV.
a lot of things are stiffer at gay bars.
“I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
After four I’m under my host.” — Dorothy Parker
Snark, what was the venue for the research???
Is that an attempt at coming out, randi?
god no. barf. i am about as straight as they cum.
So you say.
And then you come here and get hated on. I sense a pattern.
…next step in the pattern is he’ll request to be paddled by you, bxgrl, MM,….???
Not a chance, M4L. Ew.
not sure the other two would even give you a shot at the paddle as I suspect they’ll enjoy it too much to hand it off to someone else
Maybe because you pay for your drinks with coins from your change purse.
Can’t make the RMLC tomorrow. I’m taking off to get a bunch of stuff done. However, I promise to make it for the following week. Scout’s honor!
hey, what happened??? my whole stock watch list is pretty decently RED!!!
“ive lived in park slope for over 3 years now and i think ive spotted a lesbian MAYBE twice.
how does he get away with s h i t like this?
He doesn’t. It’s just further evidence.
Well, he hasn’t figured out why he gets so much hate in gay bars either. As cobble says- just more evidence.
wtf do you mean how do i get away with that? yeah ive only spotted a lesbian in the wild maybe like twice maybe three times since ive lived there. not including lesbian bars, just in the wild. i just dont see them. it’s ALL breeders and some gay men. lesbians are some kinda mythical creature in park slope. like leprachauns they supposed to be there but you never really see them.
just stop. please. for your own sake.
get off my dick randi. youre like a barnacle.
sadly, that never works.
Set phasers to ignore.
No thank you.
there’s nothing more satisfying than going to look at a rental, telling the broker it’s overpriced and you’d take it for $X,XXX – him telling you you don’t know what you’re talking about and then seeing the price lowered a month later to what you offered. lmao!!!
did you send those dudes a “Told Ya So”
still holding out – hopefully price drops another 200/mo by Sept/Oct.
just sent you some decent reference choices
I hope you sent him a nice Hallmark card
And he wonders why he gets hated on?
he barely leaves his apartment…..and can’t see very well anyway.
i see perfectly fine. i just like pretending i dont see people when i pass them on the street. im a snob
“i just like pretending i dont see people when i pass them on the street. im a snob”
Seems more like tennage girl attitude.
or i just dont like the person
Find a therapist, Rob.
Dayton just said he would accept the Republican offer to end the shut down- with certain conditions.
If he had the money he could sign up for the gin tasting therapy session.
I think Rob has his own drinking therapy program, already.
But its not working.
It’s group session that Ditmassnark runs.
It might be working. We don’t know what he was like 5 years ago.
go outside girls, it’s nice outside. a lil sun will do your pale faces some good
freaking show feature is a no-show again.
Ask me later for my dermatologist’s name when you come back in from the sun.
I’d like the name of your dermatologist, DIBS. BH and I need to get the once over.
Dr Romano. He was at St Vincent’s but recently moved somewhere nearby.
Watch out, Mr. Thin-skin is likely nearby. : P
I’m watching, DIBS!
that movie looks TERRIBLE!
Did everyone go out for 2:00 recess again and forget me????
don’t worry randi, movie already 15 years old. those guys don’t look 1/2 as hot today.
It’s a comedy, randi.
aren’t comedies supposed to be funny?
I just came back in from a little sun. even where usually doesnt’ shine
What’s your favorite comedy, randi? Dumb and Dumber??
Pete, was someone wispering to you in places that you can’t hear???
step-brothers was stupid movie (will farrell) but I laughed thru whole thing.
I dunno… one ear is pretty deaf.
DIBS, your Phillies going to lay the wood on my Mets – ie take 3 out of 4 games??
Gonna lay the wood like randi lays pipe!!!!
in other words, delusional thoughts?? I expect my Mets to split the series 2-2
Oh my, is it raunch hour already?
Speaking of getting laid, Cobble; if all the girls who attended the Yale prom were laid end to end, I wouldn’t be surprised.
Snort! That’s a very old joke, DIBS.
Well, if you’re feeling that lucky you better buy a Mega ticket!!!
we shall see my man. no reyes, no prob. these no-names on the squat been very impressive
Step Brothers is comedy genius
Oh no, sports talk. Later, loozahs!
Ditmas, I was just about to get to the talk about balls.
You know who said it don’t you????
Yes. DP, of course!
michelle bachmann trying to speak in yiddish slang:
I know more Yiddish than she will ever know. And I know how to pronounce it.
rob has been banned.
For what? (The list is so long, I can’t decide which thing would get him banned.)
> rob has been banned.
My make-believe IGNORE button worked!
what did he do/say???
haha – y was rob banned?
He doesn’t know, specifically.
Ah, I think I figured it out. He used “mo on fa ce” in the COTD thread.
Now randi is really the only troll left, unless omar little comes over here.
But Omar is so second rate.
am i really still considered a troll??? i don’t want to be anymore. i feel like i have been playing as nice as anyone else!
I was dissing Omar, not you randi. I happen to like you….sometimes
And you’re not a troll. Of course dibs may think differently.
Likewise, bxgrl, but probably fewer times.
but you’re not considered to be REAL until we’ve met your asssss
i thought you were posting my address hours ago?
btw i want brown rice with my sesame chicken tonight ok?!
you better tip me well this time else you getting special source added on all futre deliveries
Well, cobble, you just used it so you should be banned too.
You got a lotta COOTSPA, Cobble.
Don’t be a schmoke, DIBS! : P
that was pretty funny. maybe that is yiddish with minnesota accent.
let’s ask bob dylan.
She probably knows more gayisms than yiddishisms from her husband.
You know with crazy PALIN and crazy BACHMANN, have any of you given thought to the fact that they are not crazy republicans but CRAZY WOMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????
You don’t see Democrat women spewing the kind of crap those two do.
Someone used it on here yesterday & it wasn’t flagged.
Then I suppose it could be just about anything he says/said.
Ummmmm, Maxine Waters routinely sticks her foot in her mouth
Ok, I’ll give you that one. But even on a bad day she usually ends up sounding more intelligent that “those two”.
Maybe Rob just got logged out and can’t remember his password again.
Yeah, who knows.
Mr B wants people to go to the forum to discus kitchen cabinets. i tried to post a comment saying the format of the forum is r e t a r d e d but the thread is closed to comments so i am saying it over here.
the new forum is even worse than Disqus. why is it like that?
It’s a concept. A bad concept, but there it is.
randi, what do you know about renovation stuff anyway???
not that much but i did put in a new kitchen with ikea cabinets and the rest was custom.
i am on this web site for reasons other that the OT, i mean how else do you think i got here in the first place? just looking for somewhere to waste time?
We would never think that of you randi
LOL! That’s how I ended up here! I had the most boring but well-paid job in the summer of ’07. And I needed to keep my few remaining brain cells busy, so I started trawling the web and fell down the rabbit hole into Brownstoner.
A message from rob:
“tell them dumb hag i did NOT forget my password as that site never logs me out and im still logged in and i know my password. just have the posting restriction like when my other account was banned.”
I assume he’s talking about you, Cobble.
Tell that dumb sh it that he should watch his mouth so he can post himself. Idiot.
I actually came here for recommendations on things when I was looking to buy in Brooklyn. About a month before that, the house I bought was HOTD. I din’t know that until about 6 months later.
I think he saw that. i don’t have to tell him
Good, I hope it frustrates the heck out of him that he can’t post a reply!
I have posted several comments on forum today.. appeared immediately.
still don’t understand all problems people seem to have.
I don’t have any problems on the forum either, only here in the OT.
There are also no problem people in the Forum, only here in the OT
rob said we can hang out on his facebook page
No, randi, we actually love you.
[Bless me father for I have sinned...]
ok so what did rob say? was it the lesbian comment?
Cripes! Are you genuflecting in front of randi?
rob said we can hang out on his facebook page
Right. We’ll be right over there. NOT!
Apparently he used the “M word”
That can’t be it people have been throwing that word around for days with no problem.
nice won’t get you anywhere around here
It’s how we Catlicks go to confession to confess a sin. In this case, a lie.
so rob got banned for saying Mface?
How much more do we need to spell it out for you???
there are much worse M words, such as Mother$*#&@# and Montrose Morris!
OK, now you’re being a troll.
uh, its called making a joke….
Only if it’s funny.
you know MM can kick the cr ap out of you.
And don’t you forget it!
Randi, you’re alright. You just tend to degrade into trolldom at times. Your application for full PLUSA membership is a little backed up. Did you send your check for $500 to the PLUSA HQ?
Randi, Why don’t you toddle over to the COTD, have a look and decide for yourself.
i did it says MFace.
thread monitor alert!!!!
well then I don’t know what it was, and neither does he
> well then I don’t know what it was, and neither does he
It is deeply mysterious. It’s almost as if those hundreds upon hundreds of annoying and offensive comments finally caught up with him.
yeah maybe the filter has a 3 strikes rule or something built into it?
> yeah maybe the filter has a 3 strikes rule or something built into it?
I prefer my “make-believe ignore button” theory.
Maybe I’ll try it again.
Alrighty, who wants to get banished?
Step up and taste Snarky’s Wrath! (which lately has notes of juniper)
maybe that comment earlier today about certain bodily fluids and women. That was pretty disgusting.
I ran into MM once in Fulton Park. She was torturing a squirrel.
That’s not how I heard the story. I heard that it was you lecturing a homeless guy who asked you for a quarter. : P
haha! dibs would never say half the right wing crud he spews in here to anyone in his own neigborhood!!
I heard he was lecturing the homeless guy and Mm was throttling the squirrel. the squirrel was winning.
You just can’t let those two out in public. All hell breaks loose. : P
It’s a shame, isn’t it?
No puny rodent would DARE!
I have it on good authority (dave told me)
It’s true, randi. She even got a pic of me coming out of the subway and it was published here.
But she’s got a whole roll of others she holding back for ransom.
m4l, makes a good point, randi. Until we meet you in real life, you’re fair game for all sorts of sport.
when is the get together?
We haven’t set a date for the next one. You could offer to take us all out for drinks.
How’s that beer garden place in your nabe that opened up last year???
Snaps and I are pondering an End of Summer PLUSA gathering, which coincides nicely with our birthday. : P
Do it! I’ll even make randi a PLUSA tiara if he shows up. Randi?
Yeah, and randi has to wear it! LOL!
i am NOT wearing any tiara but I will come to the bar. be warned…i can drink!
You sure as hell are wearing a tiara if you want your troll status to be reversed! : P
like put it on, everyone gets a laugh and then take it off or wear it all night?
Just for 5 minutes so we can all hoot and holler at you!
Is that a challenge? We throw down the gauntlet!
who cares, you’ll be drinking on your tab man – so well a bunch of us
i’ll be the one in a Landry Fields jersey!
yo, be with the herd man!!!! rock the Melo jersey
I’m gonna need something before the end of summer.
I think Ditmas is still whining that he never got a tiara.
UH, bxgrl, you HAVE TO make Snarky a tiara before randi ever gets one.
2 tiaras. Randi if you refuse to wear the tiara you have to put it in your underwear where the rhinestones and metal plating can cause rashes
I’m looking for dried juniper berries for it.
That’s right. A tiara pronto, or that’s all she smote.
“be warned…i can drink! ”
Shirley temples don’t count
i am more of a beer and shot kinda drinker.
after everyone makes you feel awkward i’ll buy you a shot of jameson and we can make fun of how weird everyone is.
“be warned…i can drink!”
Yeah, yeah, whatever. You haven’t met US yet! : P
“i am more of a beer and shot kinda drinker.”
Do you look like Otis from Andy of mayberry???
i have no idea who that is
You have to go out on Atlantic Ave with it on.
While wearing the prom queen dress.
bxgrl, please, leave your fantasies at home
i really did show up at hot bird and lurked so i know what a few of you look like- snappy and Biff i remember.
I wasn’t at Hot Bird, so you don’t know what I look like.
Did you hear the limericks?
that is when i left. i couldn’t take it.
How about we have an impromtu next Thursday…in Ft greene, randi’s stomping grounds
ft greene sucks for subways, i’d go wherever.
BH and I won’t be here, but please party on without us.
I thought that’s where you lived
it is, i mean for everyone else. see, i am nice!
It’s convenient for me so that’s all I care about.
Well, that and the stock market
And sex. : P
Didn’t you mention Franklin Park?
Montero’s isn’t any more convenient
Where the hell is Frankiln Park???
St John’s Place and Franklin Ave
do you even live in Brooklyn?
Crown Heights. Nice place too- with a huge inside bar and an outdoor area
what about that emerson place on myrtle? has anyone been there?
it is nice, has a huge back yard and a very new pool table.
franklin park is in crown heights, nice beer garden kinda feels like LA though- the bar is in the back so you enter through a huge courtyard area.
Myrtle’s not on my way home
No idea where St Johns place & Franklin is
That’s sorta creepy Randolph was lurking at Hot Bird
i asked about the German beer hall in Ft greene
what about that????
oh that place is TERRIBLE, it has the worst acoustics of anywhere i have ever been. there can be 10 people there and it is deafening.
you wouldn’t like that place. almost guaranteed unless it’s just us and the weather was perfect
“That’s sorta creepy Randolph was lurking at Hot Bird ”
Probably playing with himself at the same time.
Let’s go to the Mexican place on Hoyt…we can all stay out in the beer garden and order food
Are you white, black, asian, latin???
toldya DIBS, he white boy
I like the place on Hoyt – just a few blocks from me.
get your azzes up to north brooklyn
radegast is really really nice.
yeah – i’ve learn to accept radegast. i actually had a nice time on an off night last time i went there.
How about Essence on Atlantic & Troy????????????????????
Schumer is proposing addding spending cuts to McConnell’s plan
“100% WASP ”
I bet not as waspy as cobble!!!!
You can compare skin tone, clenched teeth and stiff upper lips
We can compare notes. But I bet I beat him, unless he actually has a trust fund, then he wins.
no trust fund and i am not pale, i tan really well.
Lucky ba st ard.
i think i may have some plains injun blood in me!
Uh-oh. Tell me it’s not Cherokee.
that is very possible.
> Uh-oh. Tell me it’s not Cherokee.
LOL! I’m not quite half, more like 1/16th or a 1/32nd. : P
I love it- the totem pole is Northwest coast. So not Cherokee.
Ok- cobble so he’s not racially pure. You win the Wasp award.
DH, Have you ever been to Rye? Did you like it?
Yeah – I was just at Rye this past weekend. I like it. Meatloaf sandwich and cocktails are nice. Really pretty room.
Yes, really nice looking place. I went last winter. Had a cocktail for the first time in a long time, they looked too yummy to pass up.
nice! haha chiller, you’re so trendy. muffins in soho, cocktails in williamsburg!!
Hey now! That was the ONE time I bought a muffin in Soho in the past 7 mos. and the ONE time in the past YEAR that I ate in W.burg!
billyburg might not have fancy old architecture but it’s got tons of good bars and restaurants albeit Park Slope probably dominates it on muffin stores
BH and I have gone over to W.burg a few times. We always leave feeling ANCIENT! : P
nabe is getting a lot older tho – all the newbies in the fancy condos/rent bldgs are 30+
Oooh, 30+! Really! How about 50+!!
they’ll be 50 one day!!
LOL! It’s nice to see that *some* younger people realize this. Most seem to be *unaware* of this fact!
I’m milking my “30′s” time for as long as I can
I’m hoping to still be “40-ish” for awhile after I turn 50 next year. Turning 49 is a rough one. 30 was fine. 40 was fine. But 50 is ROUGH!
hey, at least you’ll be getting your social security and medicare. i’m going to be getting prostate exams in my 60s by some guy in a back alley. (nh)
You’re going to switch sides? Does dibs know?
Yikes! I’ll believe it when I see those papers/checks in the mail, DH.
Unfortunately, people in their 30s are starting to look pretty young, too.
yeah – it’s true. i’ve met more than a few people that i assumed were my age and were 30 – 35. and they smoke and drink like fishes. must be vampires!!
If he has penny loafers he’s not getting in
omg- what if he wears madras *choke*
Do they let people wear madras in Brooklyn? : P
“i think i may have some plains injun blood in me!”
You don’t want to get me all excited about that sort of thing, trust me.
randi, easy to spot me – am the Asian dude withOUT the guns & buns (ie the other dude is DIBS’ boy)
does DIBS bring a rent boy to these gatherings?
it’s best he shows up with good arm candy else DIBS will be forced to “hunt” during the gathering
Ditmas, I always enjoy a good Cher video
Which nabe wins on muffin tops???
Like this one…with the hair…
That’s a helluv an outfit she’s wearing there!
The best part of that video is at the 1:00 mark where she is straddling the gun barrel.
Yes, but you note that she’s wearing PANTS in that part!
Did you also know that the phrase “low man on the totem pole” is a complete misnomer.
Pure class, Cobble. That’s why she’s such a gay icon.
cher was hot then. hot mess now
You’d still “do her” m4l, don’t deny it
I probably might but motivation would be so that I can brag I had sex with Cher vs any sexual attraction
I suspect you would do her too for the same motivation/reason
No, I’d be more interested in her back up dancers
Yes, DS, classic.
What was the concert she did with the elephant????
I thought that was a duet with Nancy Wilson.
I do Silverdaddies searches up to age 45.
but the 45 would have to look like 37 at most right?
I weaseled my way into a three year stint in Hong kong in my 30s
Well, yeah, most Asians look much younger
We’ll have to have a big party, Cobble. I did when i turned 50
Oui! I want to have a BIG party for the BIG Five-OH!
I dont want a big party at 50. want a nice convertible
And hold out for bi.i.i.gggg gifts.
“Oui! I want to have a BIG party for the BIG Five-OH! ”
There you go again, Cobble!
I also had one down in Philly that was a complete surprise. That’s where the pic of me in high school in the Afro came from. it was on the invite. My partner got it from my brother and sister-in-law.
When I went to the 35th anniversary of my high school class, I was voted “best preserved”. I don’t attribute it to anything I did, however. Rather, it is good genes from both sides of the family. My father is 87 and still in pretty good shape.
I was voted “best preserved”
I wonder what robert Moses would have thought???
I thought preservation was a dirty word to you
I believe in self-preservation, without help of the LPC!
For you, Dave, about your friend Mr. Bachmann…
too funny! Loved the red metallic shorts too.
He’s not my friend, rf, maybe yours.
Joke. Think back a few days ago.
You’re a laugh riot, benson.
I am pondering embarking on another research project, so I have this question:
What’s a good whiskey cocktail for somebody who doesn’t like whiskey?
i was introduced to whiskey by drinking bourbon mixed with a little fresh lime and ginger beer in a high ball glass.
properly made whiskey sours (with fresh lemon and simple syrup) are good too.
cobble is a party girl!!
Don’t encourage him, DH.
whiskey and plain old gingerale is pretty tame too.
depends where you’re drinking
When I was younger, I would do whiskey and coke.
Now I just have it plain over ice or with a splash of lemon or lime.
haha – whiskey and coke. coca-cola wasn’t the first thing i thought about when i read th at
time to hang out with more kosher folks who say coke and mean the cola pop
Jack and ginger was the first mixed drink I used to have, and I still enjoy it.
What was everyone’s first drink? Mine was a screwdriver. Needless to say…I liked it. (Shut up, benson.)
Johnny walker. I helped myself to it at age 11. to me back then, it tasted bad bad bad.
Beer (miller lite, bud), then margaritas for me.
I had a blender in my college dorm room, and was king of frozen sweet drinks.
> What was everyone’s first drink?
Jax beer. I don’t that’s around anymore, and I doubt it ever made it up here.
Are you a southerner, Snarky?
Indeed, dear Cobble. I fled here from one of the redder states
I guess that makes me one of those dreaded m**nfaces.
I have to adjust how I hear you now, Snarky! LOL—fled! I spent quite a lot of time in Texas at one point, with the idea of possibly living there with a BF. It’s a different world….
Feel free to imagine me with a Tennessee Williams drawl, even though I don’t speak that way. Unless I am deep into one of my research projects…
Oh cripes, Snarky! I thought I’d managed to tame my crush on you! But the Tennessee Williams drawl may be too much for me!
> I thought I’d managed to tame my crush on you!
Careful there, Cobble. Rob will pop up and chide us for flirting.
Oh wait, no he won’t.
[cue Nelson Muntz laugh]
What about ME? forget her- she’s waspish in the morning.
You shush, you internet hussy, you! : P
nyah, nyah nyah
Girls, girls, you’re both pretty!
OK, *now* I am outta here…
Have a good one, Snarky. Tell us your research tomorrow.
(((Flutter, flutter, flutter….)))
Some branches of my father’s family were from the south. My *pure Yankee* mother used to have a field day with that…
> Some branches of my father’s family were from the south.
And I had an aunt with a serious Brooklyn accent, which seriously stood out at family gatherings. She was my favorite, so I guess that was destiny, or foreshadowing, or something of that ilk.
All branches of my family are from the south going back at least 100 years, although most were part of the Cajun culture and not traditional Southern culture.
I have roots in Austin, Texas. Gr. gr. grandfather, gr. grandmother and grandmother were all born raised there. When I was dating the fella in Austin, I went to visit one of the houses they lived in. Now a frat house for UT/Austin! Door was open, so I walked around in the house for a bit imagining their life there.
besides sips of beer, my first cocktail was a manhattan (made with seagrams 7 and cheap vermouth) with my grandmother at thanksgiving when i was about 12.
i’m out – good luck with whiskey research snark haha
OK, whiskey sour it is.
Thanks DH, et al…
Good luck with your research, Snarky. We may need to meet with you in person to verify your findings. ; )
My father loved whiskey sours. Also Manhattans.
Organizing for America (aka BarackObama.com) just called me. They want strong supporters to come into their office to discuss which issues are most important to us. I think I’ll do it.
Take dibs w/ you, CHiller.
To the B.Obama thing? Or to verify Snarky’s findings? ; )
It would be interesting to take DIBS with me to the B.Obama thing. Interesting might be an understatement.
Is anyone else following this Lieby Keltzky story. It’s just heartbreaking to me. I have a relative who is just about that age. I can only begin to imagine how the poor family must be feeling.
> Is anyone else following this Lieby Keltzky story.
Ugh, what a horrible story. My BF lives pretty close to the killer’s house. There are still MISSING posters up around the neighborhood. Very chilling.
