Music from 2A

(This was in the Blog Mailbox this morning - )
Just wondering if anyone else hears the constant music they play in 2A. I know I hear their band practice and so do the neighbors above me (the elevator shaft that runs through the A apartments lets noise travel freely) that goes on well after 9pm on weeknights. I know I've asked them to stop, and tonight I heard someone yell for them to stop playing piano, but then they just went into their room and started play music with lots of bass at 12:10am on a Tuesday! This is a common occurrence, too. Last Monday night, they were playing bass-heavy music in their room from 12:30am - 2:30 am despite my going down there to knock on the door. I always have to resort to stomping on the floor multiple times before they get it. Do the guys in 2A disturb anyone else?

This in the mailbox from pissed off anonymous poster…..

(A note from the moderator: This was in the blog mailbox this afternoon with attached photos. I will post anything anyone wants.)

Who the fuck had the party on the roof Saturday Night and didn't clean up. It must be these new overly entitled trust fund pseudo hipster children they are letting move into the building. Are they fucking brain dead or what? Don’t they know mommy or their servant is not going to clean up after them? Seriously let’s find out who threw the party and throw all the trash in front of their door. I hate going on the roof when it’s trashed like that. Let’s build a pen where the people who like to sit in their own filth can hang out. As for the rest of us a little respect please.

Pretty cool stuff ....

Even though I am not a big fan of the graffiti in our hallways and most of what is up top I have to admit I really like some of the new stuff on the roof.

What fucking moron ……

What fucking moron took my grill apart and bent the shit out of it? I found the broken part among the pictured ever growing shit pile on the roof. Why would you do this?

New From This Past Weekend's Party(s) Roof Et Al

The "artist" is long gone. But every day I have to look at this thing- Thanks.

I guess this person really needed to take a piss.

And of course ...

I don’t know if people are even looking at this much, but I plan on using our little wood table and chairs tonight in the corner. Thanks.

Need Some Help ......

Hello 132 N 5ers,

This is Doug from 4G. It was nice to meet a lot of you on the 4th!. I just finished cleaning the roof. I need some help. Currently there is about 9 or 10 bags of garbage on the roof and I need help taking them down. I was thinking Friday because that’s when we are supposed take the bags to the street. You won’t want to wear anything you like because
I can honestly say there is a nasty bit of business in those bags.

Also, that little wood table and chairs in the corner are ours. We are having some people over this weekend and will probably be using that table and those chairs quite a bit.

That is all.

This in - not happy with this blog's dialog

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "This in from an Anonymous source & please don’t sh...":

Honestly, this is the wrong way to continue this dialog. There should be a message board where anyone can post their comments, not just respond to certain viewpoints posted by the "moderator." I disagree with about half of the stuff on here, but no debate really occurs, because it all just gets lost in the comments.

My overall opinion, though, is that people need to calm down. It's very, very easy to get riled up when you think people are getting in your space...but then, I would bet a million dollars that a good percentage of you posting actually spend very, very little time on the roof. For the past several years, the building has functioned just fine and the place hasn't burned down, and I think it will continue to do so long after most of us move out.

And whoever called the cops on this Cody guy instead of actually going up there and asking him to turn down music IS a pussy.

This in from an Anonymous source & please don’t shoot the messenger I.E. – Seriously, I’m just the moderator of this blog I did not post this.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "4th of July - 2008":

last night, somebody (i'm assuming either a tenent or their guest) decided it would be fun to trash the bedford ave stairwell). they took a hockey stick to the Chabad's paintings and destroyed the verb cafe's food delivery.

As a result of this latest act of vandalism (one of many in recent months. i.e. graffiti in the halls, trash on the roof and stairwell, etc.) I will be calling the cops if too many random people (say more than 100) end up on the roof on July 4)

Hangin on the roof Saturday, June 28th. Cool?

Hello there peeps.
I'm Jeremy on the second floor. I'm moving to Los Angeles on Sunday (please dont make fun of me. my friends have been brutal!). I was planning on having a get together on the roof with friends and family this saturday at 6pm. At 9 we'll be heading over to Spike Hill to see my band and hang over there for the rest of the night. Just wanted to make sure i'm not stepping on any toes. You are all welcome to come up and grab a PBR and say whatup. If it rains, well. Nevermind!
Many thank you's.
PS - The internet never works.
PPS - I have lived here over a year and ALWAYS clean up after my parties.
PPPS - SOOO sad i'm missing July 4th. Last years party was Epic. But New Orleans should be cool right?

4th of July - 2008

I know there was a crazy party last year but was it or is it organized? They had kind of a doorman but I am in the dark about the machinations of that event.

Shooting for 6:30 ---

Tonight is probably going to be really hot again followed by severe thunders storms. That’s the prediction. Thus I am planning to go on the roof Wednesday night around 8:00 PM with industrial strength garbage bags and a six pack and finish cleaning up the roof. If anyone is interested in helping or if anyone has a better idea let me know. If more people are interested in helping on Wednesday night I will get a case of Corona – so let me know. Thanks.

Dear Tenants of 132 N. 5th Street,

Dear Tenants of 132 N. 5th Street,
The blog moderator was nice enough to let us pass this on to the readers of this site. This is to serve as both an apology, and to hopefully clear clear some confusion from this past weekend. We live on the 2nd floor and had been planning a little get together for this past weekend. Obviously, the weather was great, and we did not expect to have the roof all to ourselves. The note shown in the previous post was ours. We occupied the far end (south side) of the roof for a good part of the night. Closer to the door, was another party, the one associated with the greater bulk of the mess. When our food was consumed, beer drank, and our guests left (all by 1:00 or 2:00), we did our best to clean up our section (collected whatever bottles were there at that point) amidst the continued partying/ hanging out that was going on in that area (a lot of which were newcomers). Sometime between 11 and noon the next morning, we went up to round up whatever bottles had accumulated or had been left in our area, collect bottle caps, dispose of any food we missed, lug the bags down, etc. So, there was a bit of mess come morning, some of which was ours, some of which wasn't, but it was handled in a relatively timely manner (probably should have set our alarms earlier, so sorry to any early wakers).

The streamers, and piles of cans and bottles, and tables covered in garbage, and whatever else was left on the north end was not our doing. Many of the people we know in the building were aware that we were going to be up there, so I'd rather not have everyone think that we were on that side of the roof. Unfortunately, living in a building with so many people, there's no way to aim all fault at a certain room or group. I'm sure aside from ours and the other gathering, there were plenty of other people that made their way up there to hang out, drink beers and further the mess. I'm not justifying leaving any mess at all. Just want to apologize for any mess that we did leave, but disassociate ourselves from what wasn't ours.

I did talk to Moses while I was up there the following morning. Aside from cleaning, I think he's equally concerned with tenants telling Landmark ahead of time that they will be holding something. Sorry for the lengthiness of this message but thanks for reading all the way through.
