Fuck, I hate leaving the comfort of my home.
Here's actual information on the (legal) nuances of this situation, for anyone who's interested. http://www.theafa.org/article/using-a-known-sperm-donor-understanding-the-legal-risks-and-challenges/
That title though. Brilliant.
This issue has already been court tested. The sperm donor father will get tagged for child support if the mother sues for it.
The scent is individual and as long as a women is hygienic the taste will fall within a range of mild to more intense, all with a slight marine quality.
But one thing's for sure, when you come across a woman who smells right, something hits you in a subliminal way. Those women with the right pheromones are the ones who can drive you crazy.
I left my electric guitar and a case filled with effect pedals in the trunk of a cab in the East Village. I thought I was never going to see my (expensive) gear again but called 311 anyway to file a report. Apparently the driver turned everything in as soon as he parked his taxi in the garage. Through the report and based on the description I made on 311 they were able to track me and called me a day after to pick everything up at the taxi garage in Long Island city. I really appreciate the honesty of all the people who were involved in helping me find my stuff! Made me more conscious about doing good.
"...being refused, even a kind refusal like the ones you are giving, feels hurtful."
So, having all that power and being "the gatekeepers of sexual desire" is still not enough to be understanding or to at least avoid reacting inappropriately? What are you saying here? That women can act like assholes because they're not used to being rejected? So, instead of saying to this guy, "Yeah, dude, that's fucked up. But you probably shouldn't get involved with any woman that reacts that way", you justify the inappropriate responses given to him. Ugh.
I agree with the native New Yorker below. Though Italians and other immigrant groups arrived and thrived in NYC, perhaps infringing only slightly on other groups that arrived before, we did so through industry and made a real contribution to the development of this city, from the establishment to labor rights and everything that is sexy to the monochromatic artisanal transplant who craves to be considered a New Yorker. The ubiquitous hipsters and yuppies only contribute liberal capitalism in their quest for a unique identity, which is really only a brand for the lazy and spoiled children of the suburbs.
No such contract is enforceable. You'll be on the hook for child support if your friend ever decides to pursue it. You can take that to the bank...
(Sperm banks have all sorts of licenses/permits and the anonymity protects the donor in some way).
Artists, in their infinite narcissism, like to believe that they can "cause" gentrification, but it doesn't actually work like that. They may play a role in it, they may sometimes be a step in the process, but they don't and can't create it. It doesn't matter how many artists flock to Detroit, for example -- you won't get real gentrification unless jobs move back there. Sunset Park, meanwhile, is just the next obvious neighborhood in a larger process that has been going on for a few decades now in Brooklyn. The planners and real estate developers of the city, the economy fueled by the finance and "creative" industries, and the perpetual housing shortage have a lot more of an impact than "artists."

FYI, Nars didnt/doesnt have a net lease. ICA pays the RE taxes, water/sewer, delivered to NARS a clean, painted loft, with functioning electric service, light fixtures and bathrooms. ICA provides, heat, elevator service, 24 hour security and NARS had a good deal in the process. Maybe they shouldnt have expanded the way they did... Maybe their model is wrong. Dont blame the LL every time. Unfortunately, things never get cheaper.
Your all in the wrong place. You need to move to London. Americans all over the goddam place these days.
@ Austin, maybe instead of dreaming you could actually read the article and do you have any friends?
I lolz at all the people bitching. This city generates more wealth for its inhabitants and the people making it don't bitch about it on the L magazine web. People move here to follow their dreams, some bust, but hardly all. The stories of grandeur travel far and wide and only those whose dreams are lost bitch about it here.
Never stop dreaming.
@Sam. Yeah, I shouldn't have said curriculum, it's, MICA that is, still the same old Master's crap for undergraduate foundation. The painting department for example is a geriatrics ward, Yates is finally gone because of dementia, Barry Nemmit's the chair has been there for for four decades, Middleman longer, Weiss, George Ciscle, Economos, all these people date from the 70's. What I was getting at was younger faculty in terms of marketing the school and younger administrators feel the future is in programs related to gaming, CGI, anime since painting majors are dwindling and kids growing up with 1st person shooters want to get into that. They feel with the souring of the Fine Art world this will be a trend for artists wanting to have a job and not wanting to move to NYC to wait tables to pay off debt. With no movement happening in NY, why come here except for the free food at all the openings, and even that is changing with the nomadic site type openings. You said you were there a few years ago, how many is that and were you tuned into what was going on in terms of recruitment?
Anytime Paddy wants to investigate the labor exploitation known as an "internship" by galleries and particularly small film boutiques is fine by me. I lived in S. williamsburg last summer rooming with two people who had internships with the innuendo that the place may hire them. BS, when the word hiring came up they would just say they're not hiring and that they were giving you valuable on the job experience. One of these people had taken out a loan on top of other student debt, just to live Manhattan/Brooklyn.
the real reason not to live in new york is that everyone's a fucking faker just trying to shit their way up the ladder. no one cares for real. preacher tellin the truth and it hurts.
Hilary> Regarding MICA, you're right on most counts except one: the MICA I graduated from a few years ago was not aiming the curriculum toward "anime and manga," and I was an illustration student. A few study abroad in Japan every year, or cite Miyazaki as an inspiration (the same way half of the music industry cites Queen as an inspiration?), but professors and peers actively, openly, and ruthlessly discouraged anyone whose work was too derivative. Character design and concept art was instead geared toward production art/visual development, be it for games or Western animation.
