hobos, browless

The aghast prose in this article is really something: Punks invade Williamsburg as heroin-addicted hobos set up shop in trendy Brooklyn neighborhood.

The newcomers, who call themselves "gutter punks," [...] "The girls here like it that I'm dirty and I ride trains," he added. [...] "This is not Haight-Ashbury," said Community Board 1 member Evan Thies. "This is a family neighborhood."

Also: Before shaving off both eyebrows, we suggest doing just one to see if it suits you.

    ...because if the no-eyebrow look doesn't suit you, the one-eyebrow look almost certainly will!

    When I first shaved my head, I looked at myself in the mirror and said, "wow, those eyebrows really stand out." So I shaved them off too, and then said, "oops, maybe that wasn't the best idea." That was in the mid-90s. I am so far ahead of the fashion trends.

      that article is full of some of the dumbest, most airheaded quips I have ever read in print.

      (userpic is me, I'm so uncool and not hard core I didn't even use Photoshop to "shave" my eyebrows, I used The Gimp)

    I think I'd have enjoyed going my whole life without reading the phrase "eyebrow merkins".

    I never would have thought Death Guild regulars to be trend setters.

    I hate that I read this to see if my loser junkie ex was mentioned.

    The funny thing, to me, is this is how Williamsburgh used to be, before the trust fund hipsters invaded (with Wall streeters close behind). It was junkies, hookers and biker bars. There is a certain irony in it all.
