I have never heard of Pinecraft, FL but apparently it’s filled with Amish snowbirds 1/4 of the year?
The Board of the now-shuttered Coconut Grove Playhouse racked up 4 million in debt then promptly disappeared, leaving the property in a state of limbo and the County unable to spend $20 million it has earmarked for its renovation. Now a concerned group of residents is protesting that they “Give It Back” on Monday April 2nd.
Paul Reubens reveals his failed plans for Pee-Wee Chow, undoubtedly the best idea for a cereal ever.
Sincerest condolences to the family of Aaron Cohen who passed away after being the victim of a hit and run accident while bicycling on the Rickenbacker Causeway this week. A memorial ride is planned for tomorrow morning.
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind y’all that lest you think people in New York are all “progressive” or anything when it comes to cycling and transportation, the NYPD is having to own up to the fact that they basically let drivers get away with murder.
A very special Valentines Edition of Locals Only will be airing tonight on WVUM. It’ll be featuring Miami Love Stories and contain two minutes of my discussing marbles for some reason.
If you have a story you’d like to share, it’s probably not too late to email it to them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise tune in tonight from 7 to 8 PM or stream it over at wvum.org!
So I quit the Boy Scouts after getting a lecture on the 10 Commandments and saying to myself “I’m the only one here who doesn’t smoke a ton of pot but I’m being chastised for saying ‘god dammit’?” This week marks the Scouts’ 102nd anniversary and Wired reprinted a really interesting article asking whether the Boy Scouts are still relevant. Religious (and potentially discriminatory viewpoints) aside, the values they promote are so backward that I can’t think of an organization more in need of a refresh.
“Yeah, if they take what I say seriously, they’ve got a real big problem.” Miss Piggy, a puppet, calls out Fox News as not being news, but the fact that she did so was not in fact news. In other non-news, my head hurts.
Former THL fave Chuck Klosterman turned a misinformed rant on an album into an incredibly stupid commentary on gender, prompting rebuttals all involving different varieties of the phrase “Old Man Yelling” to varying effect. However, Jen is the only one to connect the dots and realize that if Klosterman isn’t our generation’s Andy Rooney, he soon will be.
