I’m not too sure how well this is going to go over in the heart of Bloomblightville, Brooklyn, 11211 but here it is. Wanna to live in a two bedroom, fully furnished “luxury apartment” in the West Village? Here’s your chance!

Per the rules no purchase is required. Interested parties can learn more by clicking here. Apparently you have to submit a 30 second video explaining why you should get it. I would strongly recommend anyone who was rendered homeless by the building collapse last month at 493 Myrtle Avenue enter and tell his (or her) story.

As for who is responsible for this piece of Darthitecture— given the mezzanine abuse I’m guessing Robert Scarano or Karl Fischer. Perhaps the folks over at Curbed can enlighten us?

When I found this absolutely astounding image in my photo pool I simply had to pass it along here. It hails from Unique Auto Repair on Frost Street and comes from the camera of Mugsniffer. Great shot!

New York Shitty Day Ender: The S & J Supply Marketing Strategy

April 22, 2009 ·
Filed under: Advanced Life Forms, Williamsburg 

When it comes to advertising the marketing wizards in our fair city seem to think bigger (and louder) is better. I could not disagree more. I have been deluged with enough jumbotrons advertising anything from booze to Hollywood’s latest craptastic opus to build up a certain level of resistance. Not unlike smallpox. If anyone in the advertising profession is reading this please take note:

  • Going “bigger” in my mindset only shows a woeful lack of imagination on your part.
  • Going “bigger” only makes me take note NOT to purchase the product you are shilling.
  • Simply put, getting “in my face” only pisses me off.
  • But a hand-written note on a humble piece of office paper asks me to get my face into something the ploy works smashingly.

CASE IN POINT: S & J Supply/Show Room on Union Avenue, Brooklyn 11211

As you can see there is no clear-cut indication as to what kind of wares this business is hawking.

lookforsavings

But when confronted with marketing genius like the above I want to find out! Is this not the purpose of advertising? To pique a person’s curiosity?

Fuck Home Depot or Ace Hardware and their over-paid spin doctors! The next time I need a circular sander or the odd drill bit I’m going to S & J.

End.

Of.

New York Shitty Day Ender: Word Of The Day

March 28, 2009 ·
Filed under: Williamsburg 

Chutzpah (IPA: /ˈxÊŠtspÉ™/) is the quality of audacity, for good or for bad. The word derives from the Hebrew word ḥuá¹£pâ (חֻצְפָּה), meaning “insolence”, “audacity”, and “impertinence.” The modern English usage of the word has taken on a wider spectrum of meaning, however, having been popularized through vernacular use, film, literature, and television.

In Hebrew, chutzpah is used indignantly, to describe someone who has over-stepped the boundaries of accepted behavior with no shame. But in Yiddish and English, chutzpah has developed ambivalent and even positive connotations. Chutzpah can be used to express admiration for non-conformist but gutsy audacity. Leo Rosten in The Joys of Yiddish defines chutzpah as “gall, brazen nerve, effrontery, incredible ‘guts,’ presumption plus arrogance such as no other word and no other language can do justice to.” In this sense, chutzpah expresses both strong disapproval and a grudging admiration…

So let me get this straight. This person saw fit to take the time to:

A. make and post fliers requesting that the “pretty” woman he saw leave a television on the curb* give him the remote control that accompanied it. Presumably for free.

B. set up an email address so in the event that the aforementioned woman…

  1. actually finds said fliers
  2. puts “2 + 2” together
  3. is not creeped out that this man knows what she looks like and
  4. decides to give this gent the remote control in question

…she can contact him.

Wouldn’t it have been easier simply to take down the make and model of said set and purchase an universal remote— or I am I missing something here? Thoughts anyone?

Miss Heather

*This is just plain creepy. Seriously.
