Hipsters Are Shallow

The Dead End of Western Civilization:

A article that ran in the recent issue of ADBUSTERS that discusses the youth subculture that mirrors the doomed shallowness of mainstream society.


New York Magazine is currently running an article on Yuppies and the transition of NYC into their personal playground.

"How young urban professionals revived the city, turning it into their own personal playground"

Suicide prevention train platforms

Newer train lines in Japan have suicide prevention platforms. 5-foot walls span the entire platform, with doors that only open when the train has safely stopped at the station. Jumping in front of a moving train is one of the most common suicide methods in Japan—it was, at least, until people started spreading information on how to gas themselves at home.

GoodBye Astroland

Hello shopping mall .

For nearly 50 years, it's been the main attraction along Coney Island's famed boardwalk, but on Sunday the famed amusement park is closing down.

Fortunately the land marked Cyclone rollercoaster at Astroland is not affected and will remain where it is.

Read more about it here: New York Post ASTROLAND CLOSING FOR GOOD.


Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes today announced a life sentence for Bernard Small, convicted of murdering a young man for making graffiti in territory claimed by the Bloods, a street gang.

Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Sheryl Parker today sentenced Small, 26, to the maximum penalty, 25 years to life in prison. A jury found him guilty of Murder in the Second Degree, on July 23.

On March 24, 2007, Small and three others, all members of the Bloods street gang, beat Humberto Carol, 18, after they found Carol making graffiti in an area of Brownsville they considered to be part of the Bloods’ territory. Carol was not a gang member. Following the beating, while Carol lay in the sidewalk, Small shot him two times, killing him.

One of Small’s codefendants was a juvenile at the time of the incident. His case was handled by the New York City Office of Corporation Counsel. The cases against the other two defendants are still pending.
