» Drunk Skeletor says: "These are the 18 best dive bars in Brooklyn"
A dive bar is a place that should have cheap beer, yes, but also decent service and some sense of being permanently etched into the landscape. If it’s baffling or intimidating to newcomers, all the better. If you walk into a bar, sit down with your beer and are suddenly being lectured on the terrible decision the Rangers made to trade for goddamn Phil Esposito 40 years ago, you know you’re in the right place. Or at least I know I am. A dive bar, more than any other kind of bar, is a place that acts as a bulwark against a world that is more often completely shitty than anything else.
Read the whole list here.
I wrote about Wreck Room. <3
I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish.

Free download alert! Big ups to Spinner for sharing “Boyfriend” by Slowdance with the world. Going for spins at radio now!
You guys this song is so, so, so great. It’s like the female answer to Kings of Convenience “I’d rather dance with you.” Very happy to be shuffling it around.
Just saw the Mynabirds last night. The title track off of their new album Generals = the only thing dislodging me from the Rilo Kiley bender I’m on tonight.
(PS: These guys are my radio client so if you want it at yr station HOLLER).
You’re coming to our summer camp party/third birthday/annual Brokelyn writers fundraiser, right? It’s June 28 at Crown Victoria in Williamsburg, and look at how cool that poster is!
