Re: “The Whitest Neighborhood in New York City

My only comment is that the majority of those residents in"Boozy Point" get either a government income or a government pension of one kind or another, and yet most are enthusiastic supporters of people like Limbaugh, Hannity, and Beck, who would privatize almost all of the public sector and turn secure pensions to Wall St. backed IRA'S. Another example of voting against ones own interest!

Re: “The best bar in New York: Lucky Dog

The Diet Coke @ Lucky Dog was excellent and may have actually been a Diet Pepsi but ether way it left me satisfied.

The vibe at Lucky Dog is off the hook and the bartender was stacked. They have an outdoor patio, two His & Her cans and a shuffle board table for all you people that feel the need to be competitive and drunk at the same time.

The bar is frequented by some real hip characters and is a great destination for all you bearded bachelors out there looking for a place to bring your lady, a lady or meet a bitch..... They often mistake me for a hipster when I am hanging out at Lucky Dog and I am not a hipster.

I just play one sometimes when I am trying to get laid.

Re: “Why 12 Years a Slave is a Bad Movie

I'm adding a belated comment as I just saw 12 Years a Slave on DVD. What struck me most about the movie was exactly the point you made - the complete indifference to all the other slaves in the story - they were treated as nothing more than extras. I had to read a lot of review to find one that made this point that I found so disturbing. I'm glad you took it up.

Re: “Ranking the 13 Most Livable Neighborhoods in Brooklyn

We are planning on moving from the UWS to Brookyln. We live in a great location, right on Central Park and close to Lincoln Center but pay a big amount of money for a small apartment.
We were thinking of moving to Brooklyn but are not sure which neighborhood to choose: Park Slope? Brooklyn Heights?Fort Greene?
Park Slope ( family oriented but long commuting?)
Fort Greene ( gorgeous brownstones but, is it true that a night the area is not as "quaint" as it is during the day?)
Brooklyn Heights? ( gorgeous area but a bit boring perhaps?)

Re: “A Bar by Any Other Name: The Adirondack

Wow. I was unaware of this bar, and the outrage regarding the name. I'm all for respecting cultures, but honestly I think the controversy regarding this bar takes it a bit far. People need to calm the eff down.

I am also from upstate — from a town located on the Mohawk River (I hope that didn't offend anyone). I also love the Adirondacks — and I don't mean to stir up the stew, but I do wonder why the outraged are not whining about the name "Adirondacks". Maybe they are ignorant of the origin of that name, which perhaps is even worse. Look it up, it actually has roots as a derogatory term that Mohawks used for the Algonquins. GASP! Whah! This bar is picking on Algonquins! By the way, I'm outraged by the bar at the Algonquin Hotel — not because it is a bar, but because it lacks the ambiance from the days of Dorothy Parker that I always imagined it would have... :-/

I think people need to calm down a bit. No, they need to calm down a LOT. From what I could find, there was NOTHING about this place that was disrespectful. Some people can take their righteousness too far, yes, and then they start to look silly. There are genuine things in this world to warrant outrage, but this wasn't one of them. Sorry.

Looking into this matter, I saw people claiming that their outrage was based on alcohol-related deaths for Native American people. But this justification seemed to appear later as people were trying to figure out why they were outraged. I suspect there would have been the same silly outrage had this business been a pastry shop or an ice cream parlor. Really, it felt like outrage for the sake of being outraged and feeling righteous about.... Something. Honestly, I NEVER would have thought this place was picking on Native Americans with a drinking problem — that was the stretch that was invented to justify their outrage. If this was REALLY your concern (which, yes, is a noble cause), doncha think you would save more lives by organizing to shutter bars and casinos on Native American lands?

Whatever. Pat yourself on the back, you got a bar to change its name. Go, you! But I fail to see how doing so saved one life of anyone you claim to be so concerned about.

In the end, I don't care what they name this place. I may go there, I may not. I'm not in that area often. I think Mohawk would have been a fine name. Adirondacks is fine, too. Both are names of places that stir up fond memories of a place in my mind. Call it Arbor Hill or Hamilton Hill, for all I care (upstate people would get THOSE references).

Really, I was not aware of this controversy until I happened to pick up an L Magazine today. I looked into a bit, and I had to roll my eyes at this nonsense.

Oh — Here's another target to direct your outrage... Yummy Taco is owned by Asian people!!!! What's up with THAT? Huh? Huh? OUTRAGE!!!! :-P

Re: “For a New Godzilla Movie, Looking Back at the Summer of 1998

I think the 1998 movie is better than all of the others. No, I am not trolling, and yes I mean ALL of them.
The acting, characters, and plot are fairly lame, but if you look at the previous Godzilla movies they were nothing short of horrendously bad.
The new one beats it in acting, but the Godzilla design looks just awful, a bloated, waddling, CGI monstrosity.
The only reason people hated the 1998 one was because it was a different design (and most people ignore the fact that they weren't allowed to use the original design, so it was pretty much set up to be hated).
As a biology nerd studying zoology, the 1998 one was realistic, and looked a thousand times better than the ridiculous, upright man-in-suit look of all the others.
Had there been a real fight between the 1998 Godzilla (and I refuse to call it anything else) and the traditional Godzilla, the 1998 one would win, as it would be the only one which could move faster than a waddle, balance on one leg, or do anything with any degree of speed.
If people judged the 1998 Godzilla by the same standards they judged the other Godzilla movies (and not just trying to hate it for trying a new monster design) then they would love it.
