Year End

I used to do year end lists in another lifetime.

The only thing I have to say this year is this is the best song of the year:

And yes, I know this is a song for old people about being old. But my daughter also loves it…

Ok, this one’s better…

And it doesn’t pretend anyone has half an hour to devote to this.

Destroy, Don’t Develop.

After all the time they spent in court defending their plans for condemning people out of their gentrifying homes in a ‘blighted’ neighborhood, it looks like Atlantic Yards is probably dead.  That’s old news and it’s going to leave a huge hole in the middle of Brooklyn.  Maybe in time we’ll fill it in with something less atrocious than Miss Brooklyn, or maybe it’ll just be a junkie’s delight.

But in terms of tear it down & then have developers back out, how about Coney Island?  Coney Island of decades of entertainment for people who can’t afford the Hamptons fame.  Fuck them I guess.  They’ve started dismanteling, but does anyone really think that they’re going to get billions for the plan?  Not going to happen, and we lose the history, the diversion, the fun.  I wonder how the Cyclones will like being the only thing between the projects and the beach?
