Comment Of The Week

Filed under: Asshole, Greenpoint Magic 

This masterpiece of post-Feminist (and decidedly anti-Twinkie) rhetoric comes from a chap who calls himself* “REALITY”. It is in regards to this post about Studio B. Enjoy!

I have read your site, you have to be the most sexually frustrated person in the neighborhood. I have live here for around 20 years and I have never seen anyone BITCH as much as you. If I had to guess you have to be an over weight fat chick that has no life and wants others to be miserable like yourself. I also figure you don’t get out much either, and looking at your site when you do its to BITCH. If you don’t like the area or whats going on move back to where ever you came from because anyone reading your blogs damn well know you are not from new york and if you are you gotta be from the freaking suburbs. Do everyone a favor move out of the neighborhood, and if you can’t do that stick one of those Twinkies that you have been fattening yourself on in your mouth because that seems to be the only time anyone will be happy. Get out of your apartment lose some weight and maybe you might get a guy who will take you out in public which would be like a place like the Underground, Exit , Studio B hell maybe even to the zoo. In closing GET A LIFE and leave the neighborhood alone it was fine before you got there and it will be better off when you leave.

You know I thought about “getting a guy” to take me out “in public”, but then I realized my husband would probably not be too keen on the idea. Oh well. In any case, “REALITY” sure talks a tough game. Too bad his mommy didn’t teach him about IP addresses (good grammar or gender sensitivity).

Note how the IP addresses for Agnes Piekarska (the Manager of Studio B) and “REALITY” match.

Now if you don’t mind, I’m off to buy some Twinkies.

Miss Heather

  2. nothing says happiness like a twinkie!
    or better yet, why not indulge in one of Peter Pan’s doughnuts? sarcasm aside, this comment is laughable.

  4. I didn’t realize you can still buy twinkies.

    I’m sure that it has already occurred to you that there could be more than one person in the offices of Studio B who knows how to use the interwebs. Maybe they aren’t the same person afterall, though there does seem to be some consistency in the subject verb agreement problems that Agnes and REALITY share.

  6. I agree Amanda. While I believe this person to be an employee of Studio B, it may or may not be her.

  8. Okay, everyone say it with me:

    BUSTED!

  10. Nice catch!

    The writing styles don’t match so I don’t think it’s her. Probably a family member or employee if the IP is from their office PC. Also, donuts > Twinkies.

  12. I just looked through today’s comments. Ms. Pielarska did post a comment earlier today but it hails from a PDA. In other words, a different IP. My money is on someone (else) at Studio B. Whoever it is, he (or she) really hates fat chicks and Twinkies.

  14. I’m sorry, Miss H., but I agree with “Reality” in one regard: I’ve been telling you for ages that– after you spend half the day every day walking the mean streets of North Brooklyn and chronicling its, er, uniqueness–that you simply MUST get out of the house more, lest Dick Gregory and a backloader loom in your future.

  16. Heh. I’ve heard of the Twinkie Defense… never the Twinkie Offense.

  18. Evidently this person has never really read your blog or he/she would know you like your neighborhood and most of the time say very positive things about it! I thought the midwest was full of red necks!! but you must have them in New York also.

  20. So funny. Do people actually think these types of insults sting? Or, perhaps, prick?

    I’ve received several comments of an unattractive nature when I comment on some of the less than pleasant things around me. What’s consistent is that these people obviously never look at anything other than the posts that irritate them. You’ve brought out many positives about Greenpoint, and the criticisms are about wanting it to be better as a neighborhood.

    You’re insulting comments are much more creative than mine. And they have never involved processed treats. Bummer.

  24. Miss Heather,

    I hope you’re attending the public safety meeting at CB 1 on the 31st regarding Studio B’s cabaret license; I’ll be there with bells on…and well-worn copies of the zoning resolution and building code. While Studio B’s comment doesn’t really relate to public safety, I’d bet the community would be interested in seeing what kind of people Studio B management is comprised of. They should have at least tried to conceal their identity by not recommending you go out to “a place like the Underground, Exit , Studio B [emphasis on Studio B] hell maybe even to the zoo” What, no Club Europa? How could they not recommend Greenpoint’s premier Polish discothèque? For shame.

    Looks like Studio B likes picking fights with CB 1 residents while they try to legalize their cabaret, CO and PA. Way to rally the community against your proposed expansion. Studio B decided long ago to just operate illegally and worry about the law later. My guess is that whether or not the proposal is approved, they’ll continue to illegally occupy the second floor. The city doesn’t have the testicular fortitude to enforce such matters so you’re probably safe. Just don’t install any grain silos in the cellar :)

  26. “I use wifi,” Agnes?

    Surely you don’t steal wifi. That would be illegal:

    If you’re really that stressed out about feeding your family you might want to be more careful about the law. Speaking of which, last I heard, it wasn’t a big secret that working without permits and allowing public access to a space with no C of O are big no-nos, legally speaking. So don’t expect a lot of sympathy.

  28. I smell box of Twinkies being anonymously delivered to Studio B with a thank you note.

  30. Now I think we should cut Agnes a little slack. I do not think she understands how IP addresses work.

    To put it very, very simply, it is just like a phone number. This nasty comment matching your IP address simply means someone used your Internet connection. Theoretically this person could be you, but frankly I don’t think that’s the case. It’s probably one of your colleagues— which is what I have stated repeatedly in prior comments.

  32. if someone didn’t know there are free wifi places in the neighborhood and I’m not doing anything wrong. I’m not the person responsible for the permits I’m there to make sure there is enough supplices to run bussiness. The owner didn’t get the permits i’m not happy about it myself but I can’t do anything besides stating my opinion on the situation. I don’t worry about my family I worry for others. Thank you

  34. so here’s funny:
    last sunday night there was a barbeque. went to call in the illegal use of the second floor to 311. tried to report the use of the barbeque.

    the bbq was SPONSORED BY STUDIO B TO ‘welcome’ THEIR NEIGHBORS.

    i live RIGHT THERE and our building didn’t get one. i am not sure I would have gone, because THE SECOND FLOOR IS ILLEGAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it would have been hypocritical in the extreme.

    three residents of our building will be there.

    and the guilt trip about the people who work at the club who might not have jobs should be on the owners, not on the neighbors. the owners decided to break the law and be a bad neighbor. but agnes, as the manager of the club, surely you have some input into additional trashcans, additional security (or having the existing security go up and down the block), and sweeping up the trash after events.

  36. OMG! Fascinating and hilarious!!!! I love it.

  37. calyercooze on Thu, 24th Jul 2008 4:56 pm
  38. I wonder how all the neighbors who are kept awake by Studio B’s patrons on weekly worknights are supposed to support their families if they get no sleep? Or how the owner of 114 Calyer Street is supposed to keep tenants in his building when they keep leaving after 6 months because of noise problems?

  39. Hemmroidlloyd on Thu, 24th Jul 2008 7:37 pm
  40. The one thing I find so transparent throughout is the arrogance of Agnes (and evidently the staff of the club) to assume that the employment and well being of her employees trumps the rights of those law abiding citizens THAT LIVE THERE and choose not to do so in the shadow of a poorly conceived, illegally converted, oversized facility. To fail to simply address the issues that has brought all this to a boil- to at least make the attempt to mollify their very legitimate concerns- to instead deflect any criticisms with nasty emails and paid mouthpieces- what cajones, indeed.
    And BTW an attaboy to you Ms. H; I for one will be on hand with a box of twinkies at the meeting, and my boots.
    Twinkies for everybody!

  42. I’ve been reading all the comments and stories not all from here but on other blogs that missheather has pointed out. Now it seems Agnes loves to pass the buck. “i don’t know”, “its the owner”, “no body told me” come on, your the manager and you can not pass the buck. you on top with making the board hear you, smoozing with former city councilman but everything else is the owners fault?

    All people are asking is that you do your job as a manager of a club and police your patrons. Keep the noise and pollution down. And it really shows that you do not care, if you did you would not have any complaints. But passing the buck, starting a flame war on someones blog is just bad taste and how can we believe in any of your promises now.

    And funny that she tells us that she is using free wifi too. do a reverse IP lookup and 72.225.214.38 is “cpe-72-225-214-38.nyc.res.rr.com”. Which is a residential road runner account traced out of Brooklyn.
    The res in that means residential and road runner does not give out residential to business’s.

    And I say bring a case of Twinkies to the next hearing date

  43. REALITY on Sat, 26th Jul 2008 10:42 am
  44. I am neither the owner, manager or an employee. As far as IP’s go wifi in your area is all over the neighborhood, so take it easy there Mulder its not a conspiracy against you. Not everyone feels the way you do, if I were on your side you would all happy but since I’m not I must work for the club. If you like I can point out about 15 hot spots on Calyer, Meserole and Franklin alone so you can keep on IP’ing all you want next time consult with your web page master before you go on your witch hunt. But lets forget about that right now, my point is STOP trying to save us from having fun, there has always been a club in that spot before you moved in. You want to save us do something useful like donating your time marching in the March of Dimes or mentoring in a Big Sisters program anything, you’re not going to be happy until the city lets all these developers take over and keep building these skyscrappers until theres not a place to hangout with your friends and have a good time in the neighborhood. Stop being one of those people that says they’re all for it aslong as its not my backyard. Everyone who reads this knows what I am talking about all you have to do is look up or walk around the neighborhood. The real truth here everyone is that this person who made up this website needs this because all she has is this site. All she wants to do is bitch about everything she thinks is wrong. If she got her way and everything was the way she wanted she still wouldn’t be happy she would find something wrong with it, she will never be happy. Look at the picture she posted with the house that has not been repaired yet do to a fire. Did you ever think that the person can’t afford the repairs right away do to the insurance money didn’t come in yet or worse they don’t have insurance. If that bothers you so much go talk to the person and see what he tells you or better yet why don’t you fix for them since it bothers you so much. Like I said before if you don’t like this neighborhood then move back to where you came from, the reason this area is so popular is because of the bars, clubs and the people who live here for years. Don’t just move in and think you have the right to just go around and complain about everything this is a good neighborhood with alot to offer not just living space.

  46. Once again REALITY demonstrates s/he either has not actually read much on this blog, or else has abysmal reading comprehension skills. Evidently irony, irreverant humor and satire are also lost on this person. Take your own advice: if you don’t like this blog, don’t log onto it.
