The March/April issue of Luxury Listings NYC has an article about the supposed Brooklynification of the affluent North Fork of Long Island, and it is a doozy of a moronic “Is ___ the New Brooklyn?”/ “the hipsters are coming!” trend piece. The article is pointlessly titled “Blurred lines,” which tells you pretty much everything you […]

The high school girl accidentally left her notebook at school last year, when it was discovered and read by school […]

“Pink and pretty it’s GIRLS just like the 50’s it’s GIRLS” sings a tiny chorus in this Rube Goldberg long-form commercial. Sure, it’s a bit saccharine, but “you always get us pink TOYS everything else is for BOYS and we would like to use our BRAINS” is so refreshing.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone rolled out a male-centric parody of your favorite television program of all time, HBO’s Girls. I would have called it Boys, but no matter–24-year-old Manhattanite Anthony DiMieri premiered Bros this week, a show about four former frat-boys and their zany antics on that weird island west of Brooklyn. The show’s […]

After months of grueling marketing research, this Emmy-winning reality TV production company has officially concluded that “*** in the city” and “an ensemble of wise-beyond-their-years young ladies… living the dream in Hipster Brooklyn” would make some great reality television fodder! A radical concept, but so crazy, it just might work! So, was Girls not real enough for you? […]
