i haven’t forgotten. the past month has been crazy busy. lots of flying back and forth between NYC and DC for the holidays. heres whats been happening:
1. december 30th went to the penguin prison concert in brooklyn. ended with a lana del rey cover. unbelievable:
rainforest parties and epic star filled skies should help convince you to visit this place.
3. on saturday at 6:30 pm while i was walking to walgreens on (busy) fordham road a few blocks from my apartment i answered my phone to talk with my mom. while waiting for the walk signal to change someone ran up and grabbed my phone, tripped into third ave and then started running. well needless to say i chased after them for 6 blocks, bags and all (the NYPD later thought that was hilarious). my iphone was cracked and had glass falling out of it (reason number one i can’t own nice things) and i know better than to walk through the streets of new york on my phone, but just a friendly reminder to be careful no matter where you live!
side note: got to cruise with the NYPD through the Bronx for an hour after. the 48th precinct cops were hilarious and completely awesome. (picture via the gothamist)
“The University of Pittsburgh researchers looked at data from nine studies involving nearly 35,000 seniors and found that only 19 percent of the slowest walking 75-year-old men lived for 10 more years compared to 87 percent of the fastest walking ones. Only 35 percent of the slowest walking 75-year-old women made it to their 85th birthday compared to 91 percent of the fastest walkers.”
“I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my hands on some fucking gourds and arrange them in a horn-shaped basket on my dining room table. That shit is going to look so seasonal.”
