When I got home after running errands and sweating my ass off I was absolutely delighted to find this image added to my newly-created photo pool. It is by Katie Sokoler and (in my opinion) epitomizes the spirit of summer fun in the Garden Spot. Great shot, Katie!

Fire!

Apparently there was a fire in the wee hours of the morning at the Green Point Deli Market at 903 Manhattan Avenue. Here are pictures of the damage.

I asked an employee (who was on the premises) what his take was. He said it was arson. A police officer was inside the storefront investigating so hopefully we’ll have a conclusive answer soon. In any case, it looks like it was one HELL of a nasty fire and I hope everyone got out safe and sound!

After much delay I finally secured the schedule of movies to be shown at the American Playground in July and August!

Click here* and see for yourself!

Great Moments In Real Estate Advertising: Light, Volume, Space, Stink!

Today as I was walking down McGuinness Boulevard I noticed that the condominium building I like to call “Fort Apache, The Point” now has a web site: www.305lofts.com. Intrigued, I went home and checked it out. Although it is little more than a page directing you to the The Developers Group’s web site, it sports something I found more than a little amusing.

As this image scrolled in front of me my gut instinct told me to take a screencap and look at it very carefully. So I did.

Yup, illuminated living in Greenpoint means having an unobstructed view of our local waste treatment plant*!

*Which, if you are wondering, was a bit more fragrant than usual today.

So I lied. The previous post was not and will not be my final post of the day. Sometimes I encounter something so special I deem it necessary to pass it along to my readers stat. Today was one such day.

So you’re probably saying to yourself “What’s the big deal— so someone has a children’s playhouse in their yard?” Ordinarily this would not be a newsworthy development, but it is where this petit chateau is located that makes it so fascinating: on the premises of our local waste treatment plant. Yes folks, in the shadow of what I lovingly call the “Greenpoint Shit Tits” our friends at the D.E.P. are playing house!

NICE.

I Am A Bad Feminist

June 27, 2008 ·
Filed under: Crazy Cat Lady, Crazy People, Greenpoint Magic 

I have found myself asking this question more and more of late. When I leave my apartment building I am harassed by construction workers on a regular basis. When I take photographs men try to intimidate me. I have been hissed at, kissed at and physically threatened in person. Online I have been called a bitch, a witch, a cunt and someone who needs a good “vagina pounding”. Does this sound like equality to you?

I aspire to be called an asshole, dick head, son of a bitch or motherfucker. In terms of physical violence, I want the threat of a good ass kicking, not a hate fuck. I am married woman. I want to be monogamous. Is this too much to ask? I think not.

Gloria Steinem said anyone against Hillary Clinton was anti-woman. I guess I am anti-woman too. Who knew? In any case, here’s a choice tidbit I found from the March 11, 1870 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle to remind us that womens’ rights are quite a novel thing.

When someone says to me:

Hey Heather, you motherfucking dick-headed son of a bitch asshole I want to kick your fucking ass.

I know I have achieved equality with my male peers and will dissipate into a cloud of feminist pixie dust. Until then I will rant. And be a cunt whose sole aspiration in life is to be an asshole. Feminism is dead— if you want it to be. I’ll keep on fighting, thank you very much.

Cocksucker.
