The NEW FREEwilliamsburg

The New York Times made us do it. Last Sunday, in the NYTimes Magazine they declared that bloggers were becoming an important cultural and political voice. Of course, we decided that we MUST follow suit. The Times is always ahead of the curve.
Here’s one of our favorite bloggers, Wonkette, discussed in their strangely late-to-the-game article:

In all seriousness, we’ve decided to go the blog route in order to bring our readers more timely updates. As we have since 1999, we will continue to feature:
— Interviews
— Music Reviews
— Events Listings
— Politics and media
— Sausage biscuits
Club, Bar, and Restaurant listings
–and of course, random, uneducated stupidity
By morphing into a blog, we will be able to bring information to you quicker, enriching your life and helping to better promote family values on a more timely basis.
Thanks for reading and feel free to send us your thoughts:

In the days to come, we’ll be featuring interviews with Le Tigre and Radio 4, updates to our bar and restaurant guides, a ferret pictorial, information about our new book, and much more.
Thanks for reading!

Gallup Poll

Reading that even the biased Gallup Poll is placing Kerry back in the race should hopefully make the obviously nervous Bush campaign even more defensive and unlikable. According to Gallup they are tied at 49%. This article from the Times last week is equally encouraging.
In case anyone missed this article last week about bias at the Gallup Poll, it is worth a peek:

The October Art Crawl

I’ve been away too long, and Williamsburg looks like it could use an ass-kicking. So, a bunch of people got sick of paying Chelsea rents here and moved across the river to Williamsburg West as the kids call it…

Hopefully, not a Cash Maker

From BBC
“Cash musical heading for Broadway:

Cash died in September 2003 after complications from diabetes
A musical about the life and music of the late country legend Johnny Cash will be ready to tour the US in 2005 before opening on Broadway in 2006.
Johnny must be rolling over in his grave. “Folsom Prison Blues” was never meant to be set to choreography and jazz hands! We can laugh at all the Midwest housewives coming to NY to see Billy Joel’s Moving Out, but please, for God’s sake, leave Johnny alone. What’s next? A Joey Ramone musical?

The best news we've heard all week…..

Oct. 2 – With a solid majority of voters concluding that John Kerry outperformed George W. Bush in the first presidential debate on Thursday, the president’s lead in the race for the White House has vanished, according to the latest NEWSWEEK poll. In the first national telephone poll using a fresh sample, NEWSWEEK found the race now statistically tied among all registered voters, 47 percent of whom say they would vote for Kerry and 45 percent for George W. Bush in a three-way race.

The October Movie Preview

Let’s play a little game. Every time you see Jude Law mentioned this fall, count. It’s fun. We’ve already seen him in “Sky Captain.” (Well, actually, not a lot of us did, now did we? Which is too bad because it’s a really neat flick in a cheesy retro kind of way.) So we’ll start counting at two. Keep your eyes peeled. Cos’ you never know where he might show up.
Oh, and we’ll look at some other movies, too.
Seriously, though, the guy’s like freakin’ Waldo.
