*Everyday Chatter

On the Clone Wars, these advertising zombies fit right in. Welcome to the 1984 world of flash-mob shills. [Curbed]

Greetings from gentrified Ludlow: "a crumbling eyesore, a haven for rats, and a traffic nightmare." Rodent feces 4 inches deep! [Voice] via HG

It's time to get those vaginas in shape! In a world in which everything must be exercised and prettied up, here comes a spa just for vaginas. Says its founder, “It’s the dental floss of feminine fitness.” [Times] via [Racked]

I just saw Wall-E and highly recommend it. Here's a reviewer who hated it, but his description sums up just how smart and subversively dark the movie is: "Wall-E...supposes that the human race of the future will become a flabby mass of peabrained idiots who are literally too fat to walk. Instead they zip around in flying wheelchairs surfing the Web, chatting on phone lines and stuffing their faces with food meant to be sucked down like milkshakes while unquestioningly taking orders from the master corporation that controls all aspects of their existence." Yes, but they will also have impressively fit vaginas!

The corpse of Florent is open for business. [Eater]

"Starbucks has announced it's closing 600 stores in the U.S., bringing the total number down to approximately 9 gazillion, most of them located in Astor Place." [Gothamist]

What's wrong with the Ko girls? Not your type, or you'd rather have the men in drags and leather?

Those of you "yunnies" coming around here lately to bash the host don't seem to get it... while he may consider your audible/visible behaviors to be obnoxiousness, he's not contesting the right of any one of you to live in NYC or entertain yourself here... rather, he is objecting to the way in which policy decisions and migration trends are rendering Manhattan _culturally monochromatic_... teeming masses of "yunnies" are just symptomatic of larger forces (unfortunately ones extremely difficult to roll back)

Would rather have a "teeming masses of "yunnies" " than a teeming masses of lawyers.

Some yunnies are lawyers.

I have had many more interesting and entertaining conversations with men in drag and leather than with these SATC-emulating, mindless consuming machines taking over our neighborhood.

If I could choose my neighbors, I can think of many types of people that I would prefer over a couple of leather-faced pork fat enthusiasts. And that list includes men in drag and/or leather (clothes).

Have you noticed that, in addition to the squeaky voice + valley girl accent, there is also a particular face these gals make? Something like a cross between sucking on a lemon and smelling the funk on their own upper lips.

I wonder if guys A and B were privy to those pictures before they decided to make alternate dinner plans.
