Alleged Stanley Cup Celebration in Anaheim

By J. Lyon Miller, published on Jun 11, 2007

...the surrounding parking lot of the arens drew......15,000? Much has been written and said about the fact that when it comes to hockey, most of the USA just doesn't care. Grafted onto the American sports landscape in the 1920s by enterprising Canadian businessmen who needed franchises in Manhattan, Boston, Chicago and just-beyond-the-border in Detroit to make their league viable, pro hockey has grown in fits and starts, first beyond its horizons (Los Angeles in 1967) beyond its means (6 teams in 1967 to 32 teams in 1974, 18 in the NHL and 14 in the rival World Hockey Association) to... (more)

Dear Conspiracy Theorist Community,

By Hunter Addams, published on May 31, 2007

I recently just watched a video attached to an article on prisonplanet.com. The article, Activists Go Face To Face With Evil As Rockefeller Confronted, was about "InfoWars Reporter" Luke Rudkowski and some people from WeAreChange.org who stood outside of David Rockefeller's home in Manhattan, waiting for the "arch-elitist" to come out. Not because they were meeting with him, or because they had an appointment. But, because they wanted to ambush him with a question, which never really got asked. The article states: The group scouted out Rockefeller's address and waited for him to exit, watched... (more)

Spider Man 3: Movie Review

By DLFerguson, published on May 24, 2007

... the alien symbiote can leave Peter and attach itself to Eddie Brock so that Eddie can become the villain Venom in the last 20 minutes of the film. What else was good about SPIDER-MAN 3? Topher Grace was really good as Eddie Brock/Venom. Peter Parker’s hilarious badass strut down a Manhattan street to a James Brown song while finger shooting the babes who give him these incredulous “He’s gotta be kiddin’” looks as he passes by. Rosemary Harris as Aunt May as she walks off with every damn scene she’s in. The scene where Flint Marko is trying to... (more)

Giuliani: America's Mayor

By Hunter Addams, published on May 17, 2007

...accusation sounding way off the wall, and possibly out of line, please allow me to expand on this. The Boston Sunday Globe quoted Giuliani's communications director, Crystine Lategano (whom Giuliani also had an affair with), as saying "The mayor has a very close working relationship with the Manhattan Institute." The article went on to say about the Manhattan Institute "The most influential source of political ideas is a conservative think tank that was founded by Margaret Thatcher's mentor and Ronald Reagan's spymaster." The Manhattan Institute, being a Conservative think tank founded by... (more)

Education without borders

By nycfashionista5, published on May 7, 2007

...by JFK Airport, before Laura moved into a single room she was to share with another roommate. Corridors were tight and Ibarra moved out a month later into a double room share that she still had to share with two other girls. Next year, Ibarra and her friends will be living in housing at SJU Manhattan Campus due to lack of housing at the Queens Campus. “Laura is very driven,” said Perales. “I think she could be anywhere she wants to be and this is where she chose to be.” Since coming to NY, Ibarra has settled into the SJU community nicely despite her rough... (more)

Peeing in a library

By Ivana Poulova, published on May 1, 2007

...don’t teach us words like plumbing, drain, sewer, pipes, clog, overflow, which I consider as a necessary vocabulary now. When I came to New York, I didn’t feel like Alice in Wonderland – yet. That magical feeling got me, and keeps getting me, in Los Angeles. I lived in Manhattan, so it was also magical but in a different way. We had a rent-a-movie machine, ATM and drycleaner’s in the building! Hundred percent pleasure guaranteed. Yeah, pleasure, joy and happiness if you are a robot with no bathroom needs. Already first time I visited public restrooms I knew... (more)

Is it wrong to mess with Red Sox fans?

By The SUBWAYblogger, published on Apr 29, 2007

...train. There was a group of complete a-hole Red Sox fans causing trouble the whole way. The kind of people you just want to smack. At one point, they turned around and in my general direction asked, “Does the 4 or the D train go to Grand Central??” Here was my chance. “Take the D train!” I yelled back. Gratefully, they headed for the D. So there’s a certain amount of satisfaction in sending a posse of Red Sox fans all over Manhattan. Just some innocent fun. Hell, I could have told them to take an UPTOWN D train, and that would have been even more fun. (more)

New York - Cultural Heart Beats with a Rhythm

By Credo, published on Apr 26, 2007

...the hearts of every New Yorkonian, the city has many elements to delight the demands of the overactive yuppie during any typical social gathering. There is an aura of special existence that one must surely experience upon crossing either the tunnels or one of the major bridges to get into Manhattan (bright lights signify the boundaries of the city). It doesn’t matter what ethnic background you are from or what walk of life you originate, you will have a point of amalgamation in the city because it is the home for all cultures and all taste. Personally I like to go restaurant... (more)

FREE ICE CREAM CONE DAY!

By Venditto, published on Apr 17, 2007

If you're reading this it may already be too late, for that I am sorry. For April 17th from noon till 8pm is FREE ICE CREAM CONE DAY at Ben & Jerry's. In the interest of jounalistic integrity I visited the six Manhattan locations (Brooklyn scares me) and scouted them all while filling my belly with delicious goodness for you, devoted reader. 3rd Avenue btw 10th & 9th streets Very little line due to the fact that stoners in the east village generally don't succomb to the munchies till later in the day. They are also taking donations for the Breast Cancer Action Coalition. I ate the Chocolate... (more)

Lonely In A Crowd

By vundula, published on Apr 4, 2007

...Avenue between East 12th and 13th Streets, near New York University. It had no campus. Students commuted from their homes to attend classes. After classes, everyone returned to their homes. Left alone and lonely, I would retire to my lodging at the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House in mid-town Manhattan. My first days at Wurzweiler were trying, and my experience is best captured in the words of Robert Russell, the blind author of To Catch an Angel, when he explains how he felt as he settled into an American university for sighted persons: “Everyone was too busy to say... (more)
