No L service for five fucking weekends

no-l-trains-2

We’re not quite sure how the MTA justifies the fare hikes, given the shitty service and closures, but that’s what happens when an agency is run without any oversight:

After enduring weeks of overnight closures that nixed L train service between Brooklyn and Manhattan, straphangers along that line trying to cross the East River on the weekends will have to find another way. The closure will expand starting April 18, the MTA said in signs posted at L train stations. Every Saturday and Sunday until May 18, L trains won’t be running between the 8 Avenue and Lorimer Street stops. [Read more...]

Bushwick Hipster Vampire movie “Summer of Blood”

Summer-Of-Blood_Erik-Sparrow_Geoff-Pomella

We know that Mad Men and Game of Thrones are back, but if you’re looking for a diversion that’s a little closer to home, check out “Summer of Blood” on Netflix. Bushwick Daily recommends it and the trailer is funny:

Imagine a combination of the very playful What We Do In The Shadows and a much less serious Only Lovers Left Alive but with a very Bushwick twist. Featured last year at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, this was a film that surprised most with its dry humor that leaves you questioning just how aware the characters are of their own personalities. Between a never-ending, self-serving lifestyle and a personality that continually grates on the viewer, the character of Erik Sparrow begins to slowly grow on you as if a welcomed symbiotic friend that you love to hate but just can’t get rid of. Watch the transformation of a schlubby, paunchy, aging Brooklynite as he learns that maybe there is something a little bit more to life than his own pitiful desires of life free from responsibility or depth.
