Fucking insulting prices.
post #78647 of 98362

as soon as i read your post, i already knew what you were talking about before even having to check the previous page. it's absolutely ridiculous, they went to that raf simons archive sale in antwerp and seem to have marked the prices up by about 1000%.

Saw that. Not sure why they ran it. The "trend" is more than ten years old. I know there's a running joke that they're always late, and once they write about something it's over, but this one is absurd.

I'm guessing an editor owed the writer a favor because it's just some sort of bizarro vanity project from a clueless old gay man.

 

If he didn't reference recently opened places I would have triple-checked the date it was published out of confusion.

 

I just wonder, like, what do people in the rest of the country think when they read something like that?  Do they believe it?

i do kinda wonder what i've missed by never living in williamsburg. some of it's annoying, but at least there's stuff there, like good restaurants and bars.

Maybe this is my old age setting in but I find myself believing more and more that anything our generation produces will be remembered in the future as simply "regrettable."

I sort of roll my eyes at myself for doing it, but it's really like anywhere else in that you have your friends, and the places you go to, and you really don't have to interact with anybody you might find "unsavory" (lol) if you don't want to.  And I'm on the north side so it's more of a yuppie scene I guess, but whatever.  It's comfortable and pleasant and convenient and has almost everything I want so there's always that.  It's been good to me.  But I do miss my little place on that quiet stretch of West 15th..

"deadstock" doesn't sound as nice as "archive"

dammit...i lose

1. Arab boy and girl shouting at hamburger


What’s so great about this image is that the viewer is really able to create his own story about what’s going on here. I’d like to think that the hamburger on the plate in this photo is actually the brother of these children; however, he has recently been turned into a hamburger by the dark magic of a genie or perhaps a warlock. “Brother!” the children shout out, “Can you hear us?!” Unfortunately he can not, because he has become a delicious hamburger. Alternatively, what’s going on here might be similar to the final scene of Air Bud. Both children are calling to the hamburger, and whichever child the hamburger chooses gets to eat it. The photo does not provide us with enough information to determine which child is the protagonist and which child is the mean clown.

i miss the food markets and prospect park and good coffee in south brooklyn. And the convenience of the bars and totally sweet gaming store I'd to go to in the burg (the trek back to the heights late at nightis brutal).

But at the same time, I like the dominican food in the heights a lot (it's cheap and healthy and delicious, a trifecta that I felt the food Brooklyn was lacking) and i biked up to Ft. Tyron park last saturday and it was super nice (but not as nice as Prospect park, obviously). Plus, I just felt like I wasn't "cool" enough to live in Williamsburg--like "hey you wanna go to this secret Danny Brown show in Bushwick on Wednesday?" "sorry, I have work in the morning..."

My friends are all around the city so it's not like anywhere is better for me for that. But i've actually been able to carve out a fairly decent social circle uptown.

I only wish that there were better bars up here to meet girls (that wasn't really a consideration when I moved here).

(cool story bro, i know).
