New York City

Is this movie going 2 ruin New York City's personal brand?

Yall, this movie looks really interesting. It seems to do a good job of portraying the city that the gals from Sex and the City live in. I kinda also wanna see this movie because of all of the independent actors. They seem pretty authentic. I'm thinking of transferring to Parsons from Pratt to feel 'closer 2 the city.'

I know a lot of yall have dreams of moving to NYC, but it isn't always what u see in the movies. When u walk around NYC, the city doesn't have speakers that play Mika, Vagina Spektor, and Feist in the background (no playlist exists that automatically plays songs utilized in iPod commercials). A lot of people come to NYC thinking that every1 listens to alt-ish mainstream hits, but it's not like that at all.

I hope this movie doesn't make suburbanites think that NYC is all abt 'meaningful small interactions' that trick people into thinking that they r alive.

What does NYC mean 2 u?
a) minorities
b) minorities who don't speak English (the bad kind)
c) dirtie
d) overrated
e) not so alt after 2k1
f) a creative place 4 creative people
g) an okay place, but wish people didn't make such a big deal abt it
h) the place where the New York Yankees play
i) the most authentic city in the world
j) the most meaningful city in the world
k) a place that entry-level alts go to graduate into 100% d-bag alt that they always dreamed of being
l) NYC is the only place where my dreams will come true and my self-concept will be realized
m) is that the city where they filmed 'The Hipster Olympics' viral video?
n) the city where my rich friend moved to
o) the city where my successful friend lives
p) 'home'
q) Choose.Your.Own.Response.

Songs About Chicago

Chicago is a mecca of everything that is hipsterdom. Located in the middle of the country, it is a city worth writing a song about. Some people love New York, others love LA. Chicago may or may not be a city worth loving, too. If you are a band, you will stop there, though. They have a scene for every one.

If you are driving to Chicago for Pitchfork Music Festival next summer, maybe you should put these songs on your mix.

Matt & Kim make a fun & free-spirited video 4 alt tweens abt how NYC is 'amazing'

I just watched this music video of Matt & Kim's song, and they are going around New York City, being all 'guerilla video', trying to create a fun time on the go. Riding the subway. Playing in mainstream areas. Playing on relevant bridges. I wonder what tweens think when they watch a video like this? Maybe that they will one day get to move to NYC, and they will see buzzbands on every corner, playing pop-up shows.

I've never been able to figure out what Matt & Kim's relationship is all about? Are they brother & sister? Are they husband and wife? I wish some1 would tell me, because that is mainly why I keep watching. Just trying to figure it out.

Really need to move to NYC soon so that I can see members of buzzbands working in the service industry, and I can ask them to sign my limited edition lofi vinyl that I bought off their Kickstarter.

Do u want to move 2 a meaningful city?
Ride some subways, join a bike gang? Free urself from ur suburban existence?
Did they play in relevant NYC hotspots?
Are they the 'greatest live band' in the history of indie?
Who likes Matt & Kim?

Who wore the New York City sleeveless shirt better: Nikolai Fraiture, Charlie Sheen, or John Lennon?


John Lennon was in a buzzband called The Beatles. He once wore a classic sleeveless New York City shirt. (Had to replace the picture with my cousin Marty bc the person who took the iconic photograph told me 2. [google images])

Charlie Sheen is a human meme from 2k11, but also used to be a relevant actor. He wore a sleeved New York City shirt on his classic interview with Piers Morgan.

Nikolai Fraiture is the sexy hot bass player from The Strokes. He wore a sleeveless New York City shirt on The Strokes' Saturday Night Live performance, stealing all of the attention from the other band members. [link]

Map of America that illustrates density of Apple Users / tech gadget ass holes


Some map was created that shows the density of Apple users in America. It seems like people in real cities use Apple products. People who live in rural America are stuck on PCs / Dell Desktops / Cheap Hewlett Packards / Sony Vaios / other crappy Windows based computers. They probably don't have many computers in the green parts of the map, like the 'third world' areas of the United States. Feel bad that not every1 can enjoy the functionality of Apple products, but they probably don't even have good educations / a real job where a computer would be useful 2 them. They probably just need to count beans in these parts of the country, and don't

Wonder if you can make other assumptions based on this map of Apple users. Like 'all of these people read blogs' or 'all of these people are ass holes.' Maybe 'all of these people have fake jobs in the design + web development industry.' or we can assume that this map also represents the density of 'ass holes who use twitter.' Do yall know how to interpret maps + statistics?

Do u live in one of these relevant Apple using communities, or are you stuck in suburbia? Are you stuck in suburbia, but do u have parents who paid for you to 'be different from the rest' by buying u an iPod touch?

Should Apple start opening Apple Stores in rural America to get ppl to buy their products?
Do u feel ashamed of your city for not being on this list?
Are apple products perfectly designed products that God created thru the prophet Steve Jobs?
Do people in rural America not understand how technology is useful?
Is San Diego 'more alt' than NYC for beating them on this list?
Do u think one day the entire country will only use Apple products?
Should I buy an iPhone or get an iPad with a skype app?
Do u live in a relevant Apple city, or a rural PC shit hole?
