#914: North Brooklyn Boat Club

Having attended a party/concert/fundraiser at North Brooklyn Boat Club, you would think I’d have some idea of what the organization is or does.

I do have some idea–it’s something to do with boats, and Brooklyn.

But if you would think I’d have a more specific idea than that, you would be forgetting that when I discover a cheap or cool event, I latch on to a couple of details about it (in this case, that it was outside on the last official weekend of summer and walkable from Long Island City) and decide it’s worth attending.

#913: Book of the Month

Colleagues at work have been discussing their monthly subscription boxes for a while now. There are so many I can’t keep track, but they’re mostly ones with beauty supplies, which don’t interest me because I don’t really use them.

Okay, so I do know why I wanted to see it.

#910: See The Double

The Double is one of those movies that makes you think, while you’re watching it, “Am I just too dumb to really get this, or do I just not like it?”

Since I also thought the same thing after it was over, I’m going to go with the latter. Read the rest of this entry »
