Here are a few pictures I took of the numerous fire trucks deployed over about a three-block radius due to the fire (which took up far less than a one-block radius) at N. 7th St. and Bedford Ave. yesterday – and a picture of a curious dog in that neighborhood.
Williamsburg is full of young music fans, to whom I can only say: this video is not so much an argument in favor of birds as it is an argument against dubstep, stupid young people. For the next three days, I will post links to old videos that are almost – but not quite – New Wave, to remind you what music is supposed to sound like.
I was in Williamsburg on this occasion not to fight the youth culture, though, but rather to hear lectures by the Empiricist League and, on a similar note, I plan to check out tonight’s Drinking Skeptically event at the bar Swift on E. 4th St. That should enhance my rationality, if not necessarily my youthful vigor.
