1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I see far more rats than I have ever seen roaches.

    Thankfully the ice and snow seem to keep them in whatever disgusting burrows they live in.

    Has the A&F line started yet? That's always good for a head-shaking laugh.

    What's the going rate for holiday gifts to doormen, super and porters?

    Saw Savion Glover at The Apollo the other night during a tribute to Duke Ellington.

    That fellow can dance.

    Those people with the signs that say, "Free Hugs", what's their agenda? Steal money out of your pockets while hugging?

    I like the snow. Even when it blasts into my eyes.


    fortunately, I don't have to drive. then I'd hate the snow.

    I live on a quiet street and there are so many dickhead small apartments that don't shovel their sidewalk in front of it. I have this short stretch of small buildings, or lazy assholes in single family homes who don't shovel so I need to wear snow boots just to get off of my block until June.

    Something feels wrong about wearing lugged soles around a perfectly clear Manhattan, when I only need them to walk a stretch of two blocks that looks like a blizzard. It is a treelined area with some tall buildings that doesn't get a lot of sunlight so when it snows it fucking stays there forever and nobody does anything about it. A few years ago when it snowed really bad I went out and I shoveled the side walk leading to the train, not all of it but about 5 blocks worth where it needed it (mostly intersections past that initial two blocks of misery). I was coming home from work and was so pissed to still be seeing it I grabbed a shovel in the building's utility closet and started shoveling like a mad man. I looked like a seriously crazy person, but hey it was either bitch about it endlessly or do something about it. A few people on the street thanked me too. I was like an urban hero.
