Ball-pit for Grownups Takes Over Instagram

TweetAn adult-sized ball-pit in Soho is just what your Instagram needs. I don’t know if anyone shares this sentiment, but when I was a kid, the ball-pit was my favorite place to be. You can make as many jokes about me liking balls as you want, but the fact remains that there is nothing more satisfying than diving into a vat filled with plastic balls covered in salmonella and children’s spittle, ex... »

The Failed Uber Experience: crashes to surgery and all in between

The Failed Uber Experience: crashes to surgery and all in between

TweetI want to start out by saying that this is in no way a formal attack on Uber– it’s just my very real Uber experience (a few, really) and I think people should know before hitting a that little button to call one over. Call it a first world problem or whatever you want, but living in the middle of Manhattan means transportation options are limited to either walking, taking mass tra... »

Stolen Instagram Photos Sell for 100K

New York artist Richard Prince has blown up and printed other people’s Instagram photos, called it art, and is selling them at the Gagosian. The only thing he actually did himself was... »

The Downside of Dating in New York

TweetThe downside of dating: in New York, like everything else, it isn’t easy. I have lived in New York for 7 years, and been in one serious relationship. That relationship lasted 10 months. I consider myself lucky. I can’t tell you how many people I know here who have never been in a real relationship, or never been in love. It’s fucking ridiculous. I feel so strongly about it that I insist on us... »

Is LA Stealing New York Creatives?

TweetThe burgeoning creative scene in LA has slowly been convincing New York’s creative to relocate. Every winter I say that I can’t possibly do another New York winter, and every summer, I fall back in love and decide to tough it out. If this mentality seems familiar to you, it’s because EVERYBODY fucking say it. Honestly, I think the only way to get through such harsh cold is by convincing yours... »

Stressed Out Adult New Yorkers Go Back to Preschool

TweetFor a price, adult preschools focus on allowing grownups to get in touch with their inner child. I know I always talk a lot of crap about Asia being the universal center of bat-shit ideas, but I always forget to mention the BS that constantly filters out of New York. The newest fad in New York living is adult preschools; places where grown ass people can battle stress by finger painting, taki... »

The Hilarious Signage of New York

TweetAll the hilarious signage of New York your Big Apple-loving heart can handle. When you live in New York, you see a lot of crazy things, from toddlers doing flips on trains, to 7-foot-transvestites wearing nothing but thongs while riding Citibikes. It’s a bitch of a city to live in, but all the daily randomness makes it well worth it, because the most creative, interesting, and annoying people... »
