    I realize I've been saying this a lot but now I really mean it: I need to move to CA.

    Nice. NY and LA are my favorite US cities.

    the state seems to be trying its best to push out a home-grown hot sauce business. I think it's your calling.

    Evangeline Lilly is one good looking chick.

    Nice theatre - big screen with only 70 seats and a heavy sound system that shook the walls.

    Movie? Not so much.

    twice this week I saw the MTA train arrival clock actually increase in time.

    i also saw it count down to a phantom train that apparently arrived and departed.




    service has been awful as of late, and it's only getting worse. and then it'll get even worse still as their funding will be drained due to the lawsuits coming from that crash.

    Agreed on all points.

    My commute was a mess this morning--waited 27 minutes (yes, I timed) for a train to come that I could actually get on. Went one stop, sat in station for 10 more minutes. Conductor comes on, says the train is going to run on a total different line now. Everyone gets off. He comes back on, says nevermind. Everyone gets back on. Took me 40 minutes to go two stops to where I change trains.

    Was so slow that my wife, who left the apt 20-25 minutes after me was actually on the same train.

    Fuck you, MTA.

    Everyone has a Narrative. Some of them line up to follow "A Narrative". There is no single "The Narrative".


    I don't check this thread FOR ONE DAY and I miss out on a movie date with lefty :(

    Silly objection. There is a dominant Narrative shared by the professoriate, the clerical/adminstirative class in all ranks of the education system, the elite media, most big corportations, the permanent bureaucray in DC and the state capitols, nearly all foundations, all pop culture, and all intellectual organizations that are not explicitly conservative. And even in the last case, the "conservatives" are in on at least some aspects of The Narrative (e.g., open borders).

    Which is to say, the commanding heights of intellectual and cultural life in the West are totally dominated by The Narrative. There may be "other narratives" but they have no power in today's America. Thought has been consistently moving in a more and more monothetical direction in my lifefime. And the differences between the left and the so-called right continue to shrink.

    The burning question for 2014 is, could it be worse than 2013 for the MTA? I'd like to think "no" but one must resist tempting illusions
