Yonder Mountain String Band is a great concert.  It's amazing how driving the music can be with no drums.

By the way, have you ever seen a Mummers string band?  That's some powerful stuff.

“This is the coolest place to people-watch,” said Bryan Murphy, 20, a University of Connecticut student who commutes to the pool on the 85-minute Metro North train from Bridgeport. “People in Brooklyn are different than people anywhere else. They just look different.”

Waiting on line at Topshop with two friends, Mr. Murphy, the Connecticut student, shrugged at all the advertising. He had already gone through the photo booth and gotten his mat. “I’m just keeping my friends company,” he said.

I like the 20 year old from Connecticut who's like "People from Brooklyn are unlike people from anywhere else!"

ugh.

People have been fighting over that pool for like 100 years.

Holy crap, that's my best friend's brother! (He's a bit of a pretentious type himself.)
