Wow. Just saw a news bit, Pommes Frites, that was located in the building at 7th n 2nd that had the gas explosion, is re-opening on MacDougal St in the West Village, because the rents in the East Village are too high. How times have changed!

DCB, be careful what you wish for. Given the fact that 47% or whatever the number is pay no taxes and the fact that likely none of them understand the historical and economic ramifications of socialism, he might win.

Watched the last three episodes od Season 2 of Hannibal last night. Got more gory as you progressed. That said, learned some great gourmand information, like ortolan. Season 3 starts tonight.

" Ortolans are tiny songbirds no bigger than a man's thumb. Unfortunately for their species they are delicious. Now illegal to sell for the purposes of eating, they are famous as food of gourmands through the ages. They are captured live and force-fed til they are bloated. Not with a feeding horn, as are foie gras geese and ducks, but by taking advantage of their instinct to feed voraciously at night. Romans used to blind the birds so they would think it was night and feed endlessly. Now, they are merely put in covered cages and fed nuts and fruit. When they become so bloated they cannot move, they are quickly drowned in Armagnac, then plucked and roasted whole - they are eaten in one mouthful - bones guts and all. The little head with the brain and the crispy beak is thought to be the best part. Traditionally, one covers one's head with a cloth napkin while eating the bird so God will not see you engaging in such debauched indulgence."

Small slights among peeps here and it turns into a I can't forget nor forgive situation. But when Jon told us to GTFOH, some of you peeps can forgive him and continue to support his site. That's what I don't understand. You peeps got more tolerance & forgiveness for others than your friends here.

The good news is that the maintenance includes the Property tax, and is probably 50% or more tax deductible.

But still.....

Pete, my point is if that is a small slight then how the heck is any of the situations among the peeps here an unforgivable offense. I am not trying to convince peeps to hate Jon and Kael but rather that peeps here show same forgiveness & tolerance for their friends here.

Be consistent (with the tolerance & forgiveness) is what I ask of folks here.

coop with low cost-high maint works for someone who does not want to tie up $$$ in real estate equity but has good cash flow. benefit of that type of coop over renting is security that won't get kicked out, can fix up the way you want, and
monthly maint. less volatile than free market rent.

Mine has no property max AFAIK. As long as each property meets the min liability requirements (I think $300,000). I have added boats, cars, trailers and the garage to the umbrella policy with no issues.

Dave, Snappy is my friend, and she is no ass. You, however, have been nothing but one lately. I don't care what other people do here, or who they choose to defend or choose to ignore, but I'm not going to ignore you calling a good friend of mine an ass, and continue to pollute the water, just because you can. Of course, I'm opening myself up to your derision and scorn, so bring it on, I could really care less. I'm happy to stand up for my friend.
#60
June 4, 2015 12:18 PM - dibs
MM, until she responds and points out examples of my bigotry after accusing me of such, she certainly meets the defintion of an ass and probably a lot more. As for the rest of her name calling, I can let that slide and chalk it up to, well, just being an ass.

But, of course your input, measured and without bias or hypocrisy is always welcome.

M4L,

She told you quite clearly what bigoted behavior she meant. The "beaner" and "rice" name-calling, which she and others have asked you to not do. Not to mention, and I agree, your frequent comments about shooting people, groups of people who always happen to be black.

And how is my comment hypocritical? Now standing up for a friend who is being attacked constantly by your little tag line is hypocrisy? I suggest you add a dictionary to your list of necessities. You need one.

"She told you quite clearly what bigoted behavior she meant. "

No, in fact SHE did not mention that. Partridge did, And I explained the context, which she asked me to do.

I have always advocated shooting of ALL armed people by the police when they are encountered and resist, no matter their color. The fact that you turned it into an issue of color says a lot.

An apology from you on both statements is in order.

I mentioned a while back that the store has been receiving unsolicited product submissions from companies/designers that use Jesus in their promotional materials. Here is an excerpt from one of these promotions.

"​As a team, we have created 3 prints that we believe correlates to the struggle that women battling infertility deal with. One year ago, Megan XXXXXX (our fab owner!) began an IVF attempt that ending up failing. One hundred percent of the proceeds from these prints will go towards sending Megan to the top infertility doctor in the country."

So the owner of the company has created product that when purchased by the retailer will give 100% of the profits to the owner for her next in vitro. Whoopee!

More from the same email. I wasn't going to post it but I shouldn't hold this back from my friends. (Bold type added by me for emphasis.)

"As you may know from following us on social media, we are launching a campaign called Give Grace. This campaign serves to promote vulnerability in different areas of women's lives, specifically infertility. We believe that vulnerability breads depth, and that through the power of online community we can create a culture of women that rejoices not only in the good things, but shares in real-life suffering. We live in an age where social media promotes perfection, and we are hoping to show others through this campaign that everyone truly needs grace."

And Dave, you know you straddle or cross the line of being offensive. You certainly leave yourself vulnerable to misinterpretations of your character if indeed they are that.

A-hole neighbors moved their compost pile right next to the property line so we now are dealing with flies and smells.
June 4, 2015 4:01 PM - pepper
Is it legal to have a compost pile in NYC?
June 4, 2015 4:02 PM - dibs
A good compost pile doesn't smell. They must be throwing garbage it it which may be a DOS violation.
June 4, 2015 4:02 PM - Partridge
But there is only one chair. I don't allow him to sit unless I am not there.

If you can, throw a few balloons full of bleach into it.

These are the same people who wouldn't shovel their sidewalk this past winter because it was new. I told board if their response is lacking to call 311 and file a complaint.
June 4, 2015 4:08 PM - dibs
Because the sidewalk was new??????


Morons.
June 4, 2015 4:09 PM - DeLepp
Yes, but only partly. I could have done triple axels on it this year.

And here I always thought Cobble was so Horibble (well, it rhymes). She really wasn't. I'd gladly trade MM and Snappy for her return. Tell her I apologize for posting her stupid x-ray and to come back. At least she admits when she is wrong (though she didn't when it was shown to her that what's posted once is out there for good) and doesn't go around calling people bigots.


June 4, 2015 4:15 PM - dibs
And maybe if we go "private" more people can post pics of their sofas and throw pillows without fear that someone will stalk them in real life!!!!!!!

This is kind of a lame apology.
June 4, 2015 4:46 PM - dibs
It was kind of a lame blogicide.
June 4, 2015 4:46 PM - Montrose Morris
Dave, I will admit, I misquoted Snappy. Partridge was the one who explained the rest. But I'm certainly not apologizing for anything. I am quite capable of admitting when I'm wrong, something that eludes you entirely.

You are out of line with the "needs to get laid" comment. As usual, you go well beyond what is necessary to get your point across. You enjoy belittling people, and putting them down. You think it's funny. It's not.

It's hilarious that you find supposed hypocrisy in others, but can't see it in yourself.

June 4, 2015 4:47 PM - rf
You were leaving yesterday. But here you are, everywhere.

Very, very, very cranky.
June 4, 2015 4:50 PM - dibs
"Dave, I will admit, I misquoted Snappy."

Great. Thanks. If that's the best you can muster. But you couldn't apologize for that and couldn't help turning it back on me then could you??? Nicely done.

And the second statement where you made it all about race??? I always was very straightforward about "shoot to kill" and it never mattered what the hell their race was.

Why don't you just "Ignore" me, rf????? Afterall, it was you who were the primary proponent of an Ignore feature.


June 4, 2015 4:55 PM - Montrose Morris
I'm entitled to my opinions on race. You don't have to like them. I don't like most of your opinions, but I'm not demanding you apologize for them.
June 4, 2015 4:56 PM - Montrose Morris
I'm not even bothering to ask for an apology for the getting laid comment. Which is just as insulting to me as anything you may think I said to you.
June 4, 2015 4:58 PM - dibs
It wasn't an opinion on race.

If I need to remind you, you clearly cast my opinions about shoot to kill in a racist form…

"Not to mention, and I agree, your frequent comments about shooting people, groups of people who always happen to be black."

Whether any specific groups happened to be black was moot. But you felt the need to add that to support Snappy's allegations of being a bigot.

OK, sorry for saying you need to get laid. That comment is dished out to me almost daily. But I guess it's always Ok when I am the target of it.

I'd love to see the presidential election come down to a race between Marco Rubio and Bernie Sanders.
Those debates would be epic.
One good thing about Bernie Sanders: he is upfront and straightforward.
June 4, 2015 5:02 PM - Montrose Morris
Fine. We're back to detente.

Moving on...
June 4, 2015 5:03 PM - dibs
Moving on….
June 4, 2015 5:04 PM - Montrose Morris
Dave, I have never made a single remark about your sex life, and goodness knows, you've put forth enough ammo for a book full of observations.

I accept your apology.
June 4, 2015 5:07 PM - dibs
And I accept yours even though you haven't offered any for the statements you made.
June 4, 2015 5:09 PM - DeLepp
I bet the anyone but Hillary crowd is happy with chafee. O'Malley wouldn't have lasted too long.

Leaving soon for an early send off dinner for M's ex boss and his wife, who are moving to CA.
June 4, 2015 5:28 PM - DeLepp
The closeted boss?
June 4, 2015 5:29 PM - dibs
Yes.
June 4, 2015 5:29 PM - dibs
He has a Japanese wife. The college age son is pretty hot looking.
June 4, 2015 5:32 PM - dibs
And hardly closeted when he liked to take the younger staff to a gay dance bar. But he was a good boss and they all loved him.
June 4, 2015 5:34 PM - dibs
OK….headed out.

Keep Calm and Maintain the Detente

From today's discussion, we can conclude that we all are bigots who take offense often and need to get laid.

Except for me, of course.
June 4, 2015 7:21 PM - dibs
Thanks for that, rf. You are always so fucking helpful. What would we do without your googling skills

You're welcome. From the N.Y. Times website, no need to google.

Rf, will you be supporting the minority candidates or the female candidate running in the Republican primary?
June 4, 2015 7:33 PM - rf
I'm a Democrat so I don't support anyone in the Republican primary.
June 4, 2015 8:07 PM - BoerumHillScott
I think it's interesting that two of the Democratic candidates are not really Democrats.

June 4, 2015 8:14 PM - rf
Chafee changed his registration so he's a Democrat now.

The reverse of Ronald Reagan and Michael Bloomberg!
June 4, 2015 8:15 PM - BoerumHillScott
Sanders is more like Ron Paul, who kept alternating between Libertarian and Republican.
