Warning to Williamsburg

They could be one of the stereotypes of Williamsburg residents or it could be the end to all hipsters. Skinny jeans not as deadly as the swine flu...yet?

"she noticed an odd tingly sensation running up and down her thighs. And when she got up to walk around, things got weirder. She felt like she was almost "floating," because she couldn't feel her legs. “It felt really strange — it felt like my leg had gone to sleep,” (MSNBC)

New Project: Ra Ra Riot and Vampire Weekend

Despite a busy year for these two bands a couple of the fellas managed to get together and record some new music. Well maybe not. These two songs on their myspace have been around for a couple of years, but no one was spreading the word. Until now.

"Rostam Batmanglij of
Vampire Weekend has teamed up with Wes Miles of Ra Ra Riot to create Discovery. There are only two tracks up on their MySpace right now, but they say they're "COMING HARD AT YOU IN 2009!"" (MyOldKy)

Matt and Kim - Lessons Learned (Video)

Well, this is a video of Matt and Kim hanging out in Times Square...naked. Its for their new single "Lessons Learned" which is one of the lower energy songs on the album. The video does nothing for me but its funny to watch everyone stare and the ending is pretty killer.

Passion Pit - The Reeling (Video)

The new Passion Pit video for the song "The Reeling" was debuted yesterday. Their videos always interest me and are usually a good watch. This one isn't anything special but is still a fun little party video. Check it out.

5 Pointz Collapse

The 5 Pointz building that we enjoy visiting from time to time has run in to some issues. The main concrete fire escape located on the inner part of the building has fallen down to some extent while an artist was on it.

"The city’s Buildings Department ordered the largest of the buildings that make up the studios closed and issued a host of violations including unsafe conditions and putting up partitions to create the studios without a proper permit." (NYTimes)

Everythings Better With a Bag of Weed

If you didn't catch Family Guy last night then you missed one of the best musicals ever on the show. Not necessarily because its about weed but it was quite long and thought out. They made sure to offend plenty of people in ways that make you ask yourself if you are supposed to laugh or not.

Damn Straight Time Warner

They could not have been serious? Right?

Time Warner Cable Inc. is shelving its plan to bill customers based on how much Internet traffic they generate, following mounting public and political outcry.

Time Warner Cable's capitulation doesn't bode well for the future of metered billing of the Internet, in which people who use more bandwidth pay more. (MSNBC)
