In the immortal words of Martin Payne, "Wazzup Wazzup Wazzuuuuuup!" Welcome everyone to the hottest blog in blogospace, where we use our daily commute on the fly ass F train as fodder for all that is fashionable, hilarious, ridiculous or noteworthy. I think I'm gonna stick with referring to myself as "we", ride it out for a while. Apparently it's called First Person Plural, go figya! Anyway, WE plan to share our opinion on different cool stuff on the train ride to and from work (yes, we too have a daytime gig...for now) using an iphone camera since it's inconspicuous. We'll look into upgrading but for now, you'll take what you can get and you'll like it! And we're not going to soften that blow with a smiley face...clearly that chip on our shoulder is heavy, huh? lol
But let's get on with it, shall we?
Can we just say one word here? GANGSTER. Not only is this fantastic woman reading a BOOK (a relic in these times of kindle-nookness), but she's drinking her morning brew from an actual coffee mug, saving the planet by avoiding one ugly cardboard cup at a time! But we asked, what if it spills on her or on US for that matter? We'd have to smack her, but after a few minutes we'd smile and think: She's super awesome for bucking convention and demanding the comforts of home during her commute. Oh, to be so audacious!
Ok, step one - quit whining about the blurriness, its an iphone people not a Nikon. Step two - check the freshness of this gentlemen. It's easy to throw on too many trends at once. It's also easy to turn your look into a costume (i.e. alumberjack in head to toe flannel). But this dude is "doin it and doin it and doin it WELL". An ex of ours was ALL OVER this LL Bean rubber moccasin boot kick like 8 years ago and a good friend put us onto them several months ago. But this fall, this trend has really taken off. They're a great alternative to sneakers, Tims or dress shoes and they add a bit of intrigue (like, does he or doesnt he chop wood?), not to mention a nice color palette. Homeboy served them well by cuffing his dark wash jeans and adding a pop of color to his navy wool jacket with a flannel scarf. We tip our hat to that!
Larry David Question of the Day - For all those super splashy people out there who think of wholly inappropriate questions and occasionally act on the indigence they produce ala Larry David (co-creator of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm), we present the Larry David Question of the Day. ENJOY!
If you're big enough to take up 1.5 seats on the train, is it incumbent upon you to stand up and let 2 people sit? OR are you taking up less standing room and allowing more passengers to ride by sitting down? OR do we deserve the finger for even asking?
iPod selections for this AM: "This too shall pass" by India Arie - and a prayer for the people of Haiti. If you don't know what's going on there, GET A CLUE. To make a donation through the US state department: TEXT the word "HAITI" to 90999 or go to redcross.org
WTF Moment: Give us a great caption for this WTF Moment and we'll post it...you'll be famous! I promise
*Ordinarily this will be an image but I couldn't snap this one quick enough so my mighty words must suffice* Some otherwise nondescript dude walked onto the train chugging a Red Bull, shoveling fistfulls of Haribo Gummies into his mouth and clutching a Star magazine like it was the Holy Bible...WHO ARE YOU and WHERE ARE YOU GOING that you need those three things to get your morning on and poppin? Readers, any uber hilarious answers to these questions? OR are you this guy?
