matters of little significance

Dont forget, next weekend is Open House New York.

On Saturday morning I will be volunteering at The Mark Morris Dance Center in (heartbreakingly beautiful) Fort Greene, at the corner of Lafayette and Flatbush, so come by and say hello!

There's great stuff to see in all 5 boroughs - including the first ever public access to the catacombs at Greenwood Cemetary.

Some private residences as well as historic buildings!

I was about to rant on about hipsters when I had an epiphany: There are no such thing as hipsters

It is a completely self-contradictory idea. The minute you identify it in a person, place or thing, that person, place or thing ceases to be hip.

Now you must all read Susan Sontag's seminal 1964 essay, "Notes on Camp"

NYT: The Edge of Hip Vice, the Brand

I can't let a discussion of hipsterness pass me by, even though it always makes me annoyed, and there's nothing like talk of Williamsburg hipsters to get my blood boiling on a lazy Sunday morning.
