Moving Day

Today is moving day, finally. Was supposed to be yesterday but due to the inconceivable incompetence of the the U.S. postal service/courier service, that didn't happen. But today is going to be a good day, I can feel it. I am officially moving to the hipster mecca of the world, where they were created and where all others flock to. Oh well, at least it'll be fun and there's tons and tons of stuff to do, especially in the summer. Now I just have to date guys that are ironic, pretentious and have beards...wait I already do that. Great, looks like I just may fit in.

I know this may sound unbelievable but seriously, in all the subway stops I've been to in NY I've never seen one as busy as the Bedford L, officially my stop now. You can literally see the crowd changing as you get closer to BK, from normalcy to irony.

McCarren Park - huge empty pool where they throw parties in the summer and where bands like Band of Horses, BSS, Bloc Party, Beastie Boys, etc. play for free.

They also play huge games of dodgeball - I'm playing!

My cousin ed took me to see TV on the Radio at McCarren on a rainy day last July. Only thing that would have been better was if the pool was actually in use. Otherwise, awesomeness.

i was there twice this summer visiting and missed the pool parties both times. then i went again on labour day and they were all over.

BUT this summer, i hope to be there all the time, to see TV on the radio, in a park, in NYC, in the summer would've been blissful.
