  • Go figure that NY magazine's Approval Matrix features under "lowbrow brilliant": that while the A train still isn't running to Rockaway, come Memorial Day, the Williamsburg rockabus will be.  Kind of think it's "lowbrow despicable" if you focus on the "A train not running" part.  Guess I'm officially *not* the target audience.

  • I think the Rockabus needs to expand and add more buses to cover Astoria, the LES, UES, UWS, Chelsea, Philadelphia and Ottawa.

    Then take all those buses and drive them into an icy crevasse so the remains of the embarrassing dregs of humanity inside can be preserved for future generations to make fun of.

    Stabby is a Christian name.

  • You want to talk about stabby? Imagine Brooklyn-Queens Day on those buses. Luckily it seems like that will be avoided.
