!! OMG How Eighties: The Subway !!

subway.png
While the rest of the world was crimping their hair and bouncing around in their legwarmers, the New York City subway was looking less than its best.
The graffiti has long since been scrubbed away and riding the train– rats aside– now feels safer than a stroll through Mayberry, but this amazing collection of photos of the subway in the ’80s is a reminder of how much the city has changed.

!! OMG, Tonight: Free Belinda Carlisle/B-52’s concert at Coney Island !!



Get your asses over to the subway, boys, because the incomparable B-52s are performing at Coney Island tonight with cokehead, PFLAG mommy and living legend Belinda Carlisle. This has me slobbering for a Carlisle/B-52’s mashup (any DJ’s in our readership feel free to make one for me and I will love you forever!), but in the meantime you’ll just have to prepare yourself for the concert by watching some of their greatest videos. By the way, it’s free!

!! OMG, Get Carried Away (In a bus with gay Stanford) !!

carriestanford.jpg
Are you ready for the coming onslaught of Scary Sadshaws on May 26, the OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE OF THE NEW SEX AND THE CITY MOVIE!!!?!? This is the day when hundreds of thousands of crazy women who think they’re “the real” Carrie/Charlotte/Miranda/Whatever will descend on New York (and probably other places, maybe?) in a terrifying cloud of Marabou, cupcakes, and big fake flowers in their hair. They will be in search of Love, Labels and whatever that third thing that starts with L is. (Lingonberries? Lavatories? I can’t remember! Oh, that’s right– MORE CUPCAKES!!!)
Anyway, these good time gals will need some form of transport to ferry them around all of Carrie’s various haunts. And who better to do it than the second-most annoying gay character on the show, Stanford Blatch?

Sex-crazed fans can be first in line for a fun-filled night following in the footsteps of Carrie and Co. to celebrate the release of Sex and the City 2 starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim
Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, John Corbett and Chris Noth. Due to an overwhelming response to a similar opening weekend package, On Location Tours is now offering a special Sex and the City 2 Midnight Madness Package on May 26, 2010, with a special appearance by SATC regular and rumored husband-to-be Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson).

The madness begins with On Location Tours’ signature Sex and the City Hotspots tour led by actresses and stand-up comediennes, followed by dinner at Fresco by Scotto, a private midnight showing of the film, and VIP admission to ultra-trendy Marquee.

Having occasionally encountered these tours in the wild, I can tell you that I’d rather get my balls waxed than go on one, but different strokes for different folks! Maybe it would be a great experience to share with one of the horrible Gorgons in your life!
Oh, and don’t forget to wear your nameplate necklace!

!! OMG, Filthy Rich: Pests Take Over the Upper East Side !!

bedbugs.jpg
The Upper East Side sure isn’t what it used to be. Blair and Serena’s posh stomping grounds has recently been beset with some very un-posh visitors: the neighborhood has become completely overrun by disgusting vermin and rich old ladies from 59th to 96th are quaking in their pearls!
Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported on the terrifying Upper East Side Rat Takeover, with rats looting delis and destroying cars (perhaps stretch limousines!?) from the inside out. This week, New York Magazine tells us a terrifying tale of high-class bedbugs hooked on silk sheets and Dior gowns– and the Upper East Side society matrons who are engaged in a secret battle to exterminate them.
But where did these pests come from? Everyone knows that the fabulously wealthy aren’t supposed to have these problems! Could it be the wrath of Mrs. Astor?
