How cool is


Reading this lovely New York Times piece on secret dumpster pool parties in Brooklyn, I wonder why didn’t merit an invitation (yet)? We’re locals dammit!

Bitterness aside, here we have yet another example of how something goes from trashy to trashtastic. Makes me think of how “the future” will be, with thoughts wandering to Mad Max. In a desolate and post-apocalyptic Brooklyn, we’ll be sitting there in our pool dumpsters, growing tomatoes in oil barrels and spend a lot of time walking. That is, if everthing goes wrong. Let’s hope not.
