its a relief that antifa has a line on all these people but still enraging (tho not at all surprising) to read about how easily they walk among us and how far the cops go to protect their marches and meetings.

magazine just started, but the articles they've been sharing have all been pretty great. though i think this article is as reporter heavy as they've gotten so far.

this one on using disaster relief to imagine ways of reorganizing a more democratic and just society. for what it's worth, probably one of my favorite recent articles.

Knock on wood, my landlord in greenpoint hasn't raised my rent in 5 years and I'm praying this news doesn't change that.

Now that they're announcing I guess it's time to dig around to find out what we are giving away/timing.

God damn fucking pieces of shit:

https://nyc.streetsblog.org/2018/11/15/mta-and-city-screw-working-poor-with-so-called-fair-fares/

Getting a commitment from the city to back Fair Fares was one of the big organising wins I could look back on this year from stuff I'd done with the Riders Alliance. It took so much work from so many people to get it across the line, and now they're gonna fucking gut it before it begins. I'm furious

Yeah my landlord in Greenpoint is rad as hell and I don't know if he'll raise the rent yet, tho I assume it'll happen at some point

On the other hand, one of the bartenders at the bar across the street from his job just got evicted from the apartment he's lived in in LIC for the last 19 years, the weekend after the news about Amazon broke

How do I buy a winter coat for this city? Do I get a long one? Wind-proof I hear is a must? I don't want one of those fucking Canada Goose things

It might not be the coolest/hippest thing in the world but for all cold weather stuff (including my big old warm down coat) UNIQLO cannot steer you wrong, in my humble opinion

Walking around New York with your $1000 coat on. Riding the subway with your $1000 coat on. Complaining about your Seamless delivery taking more than 30 minutes to get to you with your $1000 coat on. New York, New York it's a hell of a town!

Yeah for what it's worth mine has survived 4 winters now and a whole bunch of outdoor work and the only thing that needed fixing was a small tear in one of the interior pockets last year. It gets the job done! And I think the newer ones look a little bit nicer than the one I got in 2014.

Yeah they look awful, cost too much, and also (while I don't think boycotting products is an effective route to change) they are very cruel to animals
