Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Inbox: Here We Go Again
Remember the post I wrote yesterday about a flier I found on Bayard Street decrying the menace that is Mister Softee? Well, much to my surprise it has received a great deal of attention. As of the writing of this post it has been linked to by no less than Curbed, Gothamist and the Village Voice. And— as I have just learned— “professional” journos have wasted no time exploiting my hard work for their own nefarious gain. Mugsniffer writes:
I was just finishing my run in McCarren Park when I saw a guy sporting two fancy cameras talking to another guy near the pool. Being a sucker for men with big lenses, I ventured over to see what they were up to and it turns out they were from the Post covering a story on ice cream trucks disturbing the neighbors of McCarren Park. I mentioned NYshitty covering the story and I asked them where they heard about this story and they said “Curbed and Gothamist” Hmmm… no new york shitty? The dudes names were Reuben and Paul, wait… isn’t that like… Pee Wee?
