this isn’t going to be funny to anyone who doesn’t know my roommate, but I just mentioned that that Attack on Crystal video is essentially becoming “Replay” for me, and she said “Yeah, I noticed you were watching it again and thought, Maybe I want to listen to ‘Replay.’”

I already reblogged a link to this but I’m just keeping it open in a tab to revisit periodically because it gives me such life and such strength

aaaaaand again.

I’m not shopping, I’m paying my card bill, but it’s nice to be reminded that old rich or famous dude/young hot chick continues to be something aspirational.

Have you heard about the lady that pays crack addicts to get sterilized?

I don’t really do selfies on this blog but I will make an exception for this stunningly faithful representation of me as a deer. It turns out that I love taiko.

I am pretty sure YUI serves the same emotional purpose for me that TSwift does for my roommate and I’m pretty okay with that.

I think it’s unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood.

NYC Approves Apartment Building With Separate Entrance for Poor People - Gawker

A real estate developer, who is seeking tax breaks to build a behemoth luxury apartment building, thinks it would be unfair for the people buying apartments in the building to enter the same dooras the lower-income residents (read: working class New Yorkers) because those people should be grateful they can even have a residence in this building. 

Are you fucking kidding me?.

This is so fucking disgusting. These developers need their asses handed to them.

Hey so big cities all over North America are trying to cajole developers into building cheaper rental housing through tax breaks or increased maximum density allowances or some other carrot/stick combination. At best, this creates few affordable units relative to demand, costs a lot of money (both in terms of government expenditure and in terms of higher housing prices for everyone), and makes any kind of long-term community planning efforts very difficult to commit to. At worst, the developers manage to rent the units at market prices anyway and/or subject the tenants to indignity like this.

If you’re a municipal government in a big city, and you want affordable housing, tax developers and build it yourself. You need to be smart about it (e.g. not giant projects, integrate the units well with social services, spread them out around town) but this ends up being so much cheaper and efficient and ensures the people in the affordable units actually need them. Trying to game the existing market structure for housing generally doesn’t end well.
