Will your blunts pass muster? via Facebook

Remember when your parents said you were throwing away your life smoking weed? Well maybe they we’re wrong! Every pothead’s dream started to come true when a job as a blunt roller was posted by rapper Waka Flocka Flame. What was once a pipe dream, is now a literal pipe dream. Well, a blunt wrap dream, anyway. (more…)

Amazing Garden

Look at all the fun people had their last year. via The Amazing Garden

Community gardens are just one of the multitude of reasons why Brooklyn is so amazing. Unfortunately these gardens are not just designated open spaces that grow and maintain themselves, but that’s okay because raising money for one of them this weekend involves you listening to live music and enjoying the best grilled sandwiches in the borough.

Now I know you and your S/O have been talking about moving out to Park Slope someday, so you can raise your children on Sundays in Prospect Park and honey pie from Four & Twenty Blackbirds. Well, guess what? Now you don’t have to save ’til you’re 40 to do it! We’ve got a handful of reasonably-priced apartments in the Slope. That, and a bunch of cute pads in a weird cluster of Bushwick/Bed-Stuy real estate off the J train, where the real estate values are going up with the crime rate (allegedly). So what’s it gonna be, kids? (more…)

Perhaps you’ve biked past the gleaming, straight-out-of-Miami condo towers along Kent Avenue in Williamsburg and wondered to yourself: “Who the fuck even lives there? How do they live there?” You might not have had the time to find out, but Scott Rogowsky, host of Running Late decided to go quiz the front desk people working at and the realtors renting in Williamsburg’s luxury waterfront condos. It’s cathartic, in a class war kind of way. (more…)

dr-horrible sing along blog

This, sadly, is who you are inside, not Captain Hammer

In the comic book movie that is our lives, we go around thinking that we’re the heroes, but there are only so many heroes out there. The sad reality is that we’re much more likely to be the hapless bystanders or even hapless villains of our own stories. So, why not embrace that reality next month by buying a ticket to the Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Sing-Along Party at Union Hall and singing your hapless, loveless lungs out with other wannabe world rulers?

cannabist sex columnist

There’s gonna be a lot of stiff competition for the job

Well, here it is, the job you’ve been preparing for your entire life, thanks to your rampant weed smoking and promiscuity: weed-friendly web magazine Cannabist is looking for someone to be their stoned sex columnist. “I’ve had sex! I’ve smoked pot!” you’re yelling to everyone in your office/at the coffee shop. “Sometimes I’ve even done them together!” Well yes, congratulations, you’re cool and not a virgin. Can you give people good sex advice though, beyond “slow, rhythmic clitoral stimulation”? (more…)

Upset because you didn’t make it to the beach? That’s your own fault and nothing we  can do about it. However, while summer is drawing to a close, Brooklyn keeps it real by providing a taste of the sea with multiple $1 oyster specials. Here’s the scoop on where to go if you want to pinch pennies and still have a sexy* good time eating everyone’s favorite summer aphrodisiac. (more…)

ghostbusters

You afraid of this ghost? No? Then check out this chat with its creator.

Aside from having awesome gear and the rakish wit of a young-ish Bill Murray, the Ghostbusters had another important factor for success: great #branding. Their logo, a ghost in a “not allowed” circle, says everything you needed to know about the Ghostbusters, namely, that they were anti-ghost. On Saturday, you can hear from the man who made that logo, Michael C. Gross, when he pops in to Pratt on Saturday, September 20 for a FREE talk about design and his career in the humor business. If you are in fact afraid of some ghosts, you’re still allowed to go, but we wouldn’t recommend it. (more…)
