The jury is already out!

This morning , on my way out to work I noticed commentary on all three of the little tear flyers that were hung in order to get people to go to this blog. All three seem to be either endorsing or condemning this blog.

They read ; “This blog sucks ass”, “This blog kicks ass (what are you talking about?)” and my favorite “Poop in my pants”.

I’m not quite sure what the last one is getting at.

132 N 5 Resident Party ?

I have read this today and have heard other people offer a suggestion of building party so the people in the building can meet people in the building. I think it’s a great idea! Any thoughts or dates etc. ……

First Posting - New to Blogging


I wanted to submit this posting because I actually live at 132 N 5. I write this in order to facilitate the possibility of us “All Just Getting Along”. I saw a sign that asked the question "Why can't we all just get along" hung in our stairwell after a series of other signs leading up to that one.

About DJ’s and Subwoofers and or heavy base in general on the roof:

If you live on the 4th floor – it is genuinely excruciating. All you get is the base and a lot of it. I have tried pillows over my head, earplugs, pillows and earplugs,. No luck. I have even tried the Bose QuietComfort® 2 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones to no avail. But For the love of god - the pounding, pounding, pounding in my skull. I am begging for mercy on this one. You could have 400 hundred people on the roof – nothing. However, one person with a DJ or subwoofer – holy fucking shit. You can’t even watch T.V. during the day. I think the roof becomes an extension of the actual speaker cone. Also, It matters very little where you set up the system the above remains to be true.

About jamming the front door open for a party:

This is why I think it’s a bad idea. I recently applied for renters insurance for my apartment here at 132 N 5th St.. This building has a very high “hit” rate. Meaning there has been a lot of burglaries here, one less than two months ago actually. Why not? – the door is wide open. If you don’t believe me, apply for renters insurance yourself. It’s all fun and games until you come home and your shit is missing. Also, you haven’t lived until some nasty sweaty drunken person, comes into your apartment unannounced and uninvited looking for a bathroom – only because you forgot to lock the apartment door. Not to mention the people that just try to open your locked door at all hours which is very creepy on its own. So, I am of the school that if you are having a party you are responsible for knowing who your guests are and you should at the very least know who you are letting into the building. It’s so fucking easy, you could let someone into this building from Beijing with your cell phone.

About the garbage, spilled beer, puke, and or feces (dog & other) on the roof and in the hall:

I seriously don’t believe I have to write this, but I will. It’s just not cool. If it’s your party you have to know it’s your responsibility to clean it up after it as quickly as possible. And if you have a big building party you have to know that the roof is going to be trashed. Going up to the roof on Saturday and or Sunday late morning and finding a dump is really disheartening and the longer it lingers the more disheartening it becomes. This seems to be a relatively new issue. But I have to say with complete sincerity - C'mon, no really, C'mon.
