Odd Future < ICP. I would pay money to see the Juggalos go to work on these guys.
@Charlespow - #3. I think the move-in of large chains (and modifications specific to the local demographic) points to increasing commercialism / exploitation of previously untapped demographics, not gentrification. And anyway, unless you're talking about Park Slope, the influx of people willing to pay $2k/month to live in Brooklyn are a transient population. Those people aren't making babies (well, to full term, anyway) - they're trust fund college kids.
Which leads me to what I think is wrong with Brooklyn these days -
What's wrong with Brooklyn? Well, what's going on in Brooklyn? These days, if it's not twee or self-consciously noisy, and/or if it lacks at least 75% suburban white kids with average-to-moderately-attractive looks with and a stand up drummer and tons of reverb or echo on the vocals (vocals) and a keyboard, then most bloggers and venues don't care.
Bands line-ups/tracklists are well-curated, but the music is dispassionate and extremely calculated. It's true, there are some polished, well-practiced groups out there. But innovative? Candid? Open? Those qualities I have rarely seen at shows in Brooklyn. The scene is anemic. How about some heart?
Uh...didn't he hit not one but TWO chicks? By the very semantics of the understood meaning of the phrase "dude who hits chicks", he has met the definition.
Well, since the teeming masses are asking for my valued opinion, and having been spit (spat?) on before, I had the wit and maturity to deal with this by...approaching a cop in the vicinity (there was one around) and learning that I had the right to file an assault complaint. Because under most state laws, that is a form of physical assault. True, not nearly as thrilling as punching the douchey person ((R) (T) (c) 2011 Jinna), but I'm pretty sure they're not spitting anymore. Well, ok, probably because I ripped out the douche's tongue, but that is neither here nor there.
Hope that cleared that up. Tootles!
Let's all step back a minute here. He HIT A WOMAN with his FIST. And then went after ANOTHER ONE. Not just a slap, or a backhand. He went IN FOR IT. If he does that in public, god knows what he does in private. That guy is a whackjob and I hope those women press charges. And that also goes out to you guys commenting on this post who are obviously nursing wounded egos who lack the wit and maturity to deal w/ annoying douchey people, be they women or men out in public.
