Oh and the night before Halloween somebody spray painted a huge wang and the words "Ms. (something or another) IS A BITCH" on the school's front doors and steps.

Just city litter. It's actually the smallest pile of crack vials I have ever seen. And it was bigger when I first walked past, seems like some disappeared. Maybe they still had rock in 'em, who knows.

There has been a pile of "medical vials" across the street from that school for almost a week.

And you folks are so concerned with paper plates.

Healy, I'm pretty sure I saw Yakima Twilight six packs when I went an hour ago, and they definitely have Old Horizontal in single bottles (I purchased one while jumping up and down like a kid at a candy shop!)

As far as our purchases (putting prices for general public's info):

McClelland Islay single malt scotch whisky (22.99)
A large bottle of Bruery Black Orchard Black Belgian Wheat Ale (7.99)

And we made a six pack consisting of (first three my choices, last three my girlfriend's choices)...
Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale (3.25)
Victory Old Horizontal (3.25)
Ithaca Cold Front (1.75)
La Choulette Frambois (5.00)
Dogfish Head Palo Santo (4.75)
Ithaca Apricot Wheat (1.75)

We drank the large bottle of Bruery Black Orchard with dinner, and it may look heavy and intimidating, it was surprisingly light, and crisp. Had it with chicken soup, and regardless of whether or not that's a proper pairing it went well.

We just cracked our first two beers, I'm having the Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale (been DYING to try this, but at 18.00 a six pack at Coles Street, meh). I actually think this has a better taste to it than regular Arrogant Bastard, which I love to death. Same heaviness, but the oak definitely gives it an interesting bite.

My girlfriend is drinking the La Choulette frambois now, and the sip I had was nice. Not as sweet as a lot of other frambois on the market, and it actually tastes like an old bar favorite of mine, the Black & Red (black and tans for anarchists, ahahahaha. Half stout, half frambois. Tastes like chocolate covered raspberries), regardless of the lack of stout.

I'm sure I'll keep you updated on the rest of the six pack through out the course of the night, since our plans are to just hang out, do laundry, and drink beers.

So excited that they carry Ithaca Brewery's beers, too. I absolutely fell in LOVE with this brewery while living in Ithaca, and I have yet to find it anywhere in NJ. And it's also just as cheap here as it is up there, which is REALLY exciting.

Also, ThirdRail, did not see the beer you seek.

Hey take it easy. I have friends, more like acquaintences at this point because they party hard and drink every day that still "DJ in the East Village", "Drink box wine" and "Get Tattoos". I get these people and it can be fun to spend a night out with them because they know a lot about good music generally and they get me free drinks. If you don't think there are requirements to membership you have never been to a concert at McCarren pool and seen how everyone looks the same.


No, I'm familiar with all of that, believe me.

And yeah, NYC definitely has more douchebags per square foot, but douchebags from all walks of life. I don't really see that amongst the Jersey City crowd I am assuming everyone is talking about when they talk about hipsters.

If irony and sarcasm are so toxic why are you objectifying some stupid looking guido kid as your avatar? Toxic.


I see your point. But I happen to be fascinated with Guido culture since arriving on the fair shores of Jersey. Going to the Jersey Shore is like happening upon an exotic tribe of head shrinkers in South America with all their unique forms of dress and communication. Ironic? Possibly. Hillarious? Absolutely.


Well unfortunately for you that kind of negates your entire first post.

THey thought, "hey, check out these super nice but strange looking men. Oh, how nice, they're offering us blankets! Oooh, I'm a little itchy. Beads for land? Sounds reasonable, we LOVE beads! You guys are alright! Wait, what? You need us to move out of your way? Trail of tears? Hmmm. Who's this God you speak of, and why is he so into this Manifest Destiny? This is horrible, you're raping our land. Oh god, thunder water..."

Then I guess I've got just a few more inches to go before I'm no longer ironic.

Also I dunno why Rick Rubin is wearing a scarf, I haven't needed one since my beard grew down to my collar bone (which is a long length due to the fact that my chin is a bit weak because I got into an accident as a child that stunted the growth of my jaw bone).

JCTC, FTW!!! Awesome tattoo shop. Chuck has been working on my sleeve for god knows how many years now, and I think I am subconsciously taking forever because I never want that part of our relationship to end (although we're finishing it up Tuesday!) Adam has also done work on me and the color has held up in ways I can't even begin to describe.

Definitely Jersey City Tattoo Co., not even worth questioning.

So I got sick of shaving a few years ago, and now I have an ironic beard? Screw that, I'm a hairy guy of Italian/German descent, and quite frankly I'm not interested in shaving twice a day just so I can have dry skin and five o'clock shadow all the time anyways. I had to start shaving at the age of 12 years old, TWELVE YEARS OLD, for crissake.

And as far as all this yuppie/hipster nonsense. I let you yuppies live your lives and do whatever you want, and hey, good for you for reaching those goals of yours. If your content with life, then so be it.

I'm going to go ahead and assume, since I never actually got a straight answer, that I am what you would all consider a hipster (I have an "ironic" beard, tattoos (some of which are funny, like my BURRITO BANDITO tattoo) and listen to a lot of bands you've probably never heard of. Hey, big deal. I'm not still living in freshman year of high school (whatever that means?), I just never gave up on a lot of things that meant something to me. Music and my lifestyle (which is anything but hip, I'm seriously a socially awkward loser who loves music and food and art) wasn't something that could just be equated to a toy like a G.I. Joe that you just give up on.

This post was fueled by a relaxing day off, a tattoo of a bottle cap with a 13 on it and the words "HIGH LIFE" around the edges, and pancakes and sausage breakfast for dinner.

I was vegan for a number of years, my girlfriend was vegetarian when we first met (I had nothing to do with the crossover, I swear), and hey to each their own when it comes to your diet. That's not the problem.

PETA is a problem. Crap ass organization does nothing but annoy.

And my (albeit completely harsh) comment about the kid was more along the lines of "there has GOT to be a cuter vegetarian kid in the USA."

He could have been voted cutest 9 year old rocket scientist, and I would have the same opinion.

But I'm not really going any further, because I'm actually just in a bad mood and should have kept my mouth shut instead of making a comment about this kid looking like a marmot. Sorry, folks.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go take out my aggressions on forty pounds of raw chicken breast.

Like somebody stated before, Gatorade bottle, Solo cup, whatever, people wanna drink in public they're gonna. Won't even deny it, I'm guilty of it myself.

But I think it has a lot to do with it being state property and local government trying to cover their asses; god forbid something were to happen, and the family of someone injured tried suing the state over negligent law enforcement or whatever. The government doesn't wanna deal with that.
