The Great GoogaMooga Aftermath of Subway Hippie Horror

Here are just 17 seconds of the worst non-dentistry-related three minutes of my life. Did you enjoy broing down with rockstar chefs and hacky sacks at the Great GoogaMooga Festival in Prospect Park yesterday? Did you enjoy standing in endless lines? Did you enjoy it all so much that you became… whatever these dudes are? I considered derailing the train with my mind to save Manhattan as we left York St. on the F but instead I just changed cars at East Broadway like an adult.

@brent_cox Your problem is with the one art-bro in the Chris Webber Warriors jersey, right, Brent? Because I hated that, too. Wow.

@David Roth Look At This Fucking Foodster

@David Roth Let's just say that I have Certain Phobias.

they're CAKING

Manhattan bros are the WORST.

BadUncle (#153)

They're like that guy with the saxaphone panhandling to stop playing.

jolie (#16)

It's bad, but not as bad as the ACTUAL LITERAL SWORDPLAY I once was forced to endure on a downtown D train.

BadUncle (#153)

@jolie Sabre, épée, or foil?

Bryan Keller (#3,804)

@jolie Are we talking about a more literal bromance here?

Mr. B (#10,093)

@jolie Like, to the death???

jolie (#16)

@Mr. B To the pain. (My pain.)(They had capes. It was excruciating.)

Mr. B (#10,093)

@jolie I don't know if this compares, but my freshman roommate in college once smashed the overhead light fixture with his wooden sword while watching "Highlander." So I can empathize.

Smitros (#5,315)

@Mr. B Did you have multiple fixtures? There can be only one.

BadUncle (#153)

@Mr. B I've done that with a traditional Chinese hooked sword at my martial arts school in San Diego. Look before you leap, I suppose.

There was all kinds of Manhattan suck at GoogaMooga.

What's it gonna take for you to turn that phone sideways next time you wanna make a movie? I'm in for a dollar.

hockeymom (#143)

I assume there will be an upcoming article on Tank Tops: When to Wear Them*

*the answer is never, except in rare exceptions…Greco-Roman Wrestler, Stripper, Hemsworth Brother.

Bittersweet (#765)

@hockeymom Playing Stanley Kowalski, and even then, you've got other options.

Golly. For someone who hates Brooklyn so much, you certainly spend a LOT OF TIME THERE.

GailPink (#9,712)

To get away from that, I would have risked death and changed cars between stops.

KenWheaton (#401)

@GailPink The horror of the F Train: the doors between cars don't open!

GailPink (#9,712)

@KenWheaton I did not know that!

Despite of because of yesterday's spectacular weather, the insufferable people index was at danger level across the entire city.

Leon (#6,596)

@NotAndersonCooper – I dunno, there were about 45,000 great people doing a very nice thing all at once in Central Park yesterday morning.

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

New York sounds great.

Niko Bellic (#1,312)

A good moment to remind you people of some of the rules of making the most out of your life in NYC:

1. Never go to any festivals of any kind
2. Never go to a show of a band that's past it's prime quality-wise, but is peaking popularity-wise.
3. Never be in (or go in the direction of) Manhattan or a park on a weekend
4. Never eat anywhere where they charge for any non-edible "value".

goodiesfirst (#3,448)

@Niko Bellic I might go as far as no parks ever.

@goodiesfirst I've got it down to an art. I just never leave the house.

nostrich@twitter (#233,755)

I'll take this over the asshole with an air horn I got stuck on the 6 with last year after some sport game.

laurel (#4,035)

Might as well live in San Francisco.

Uncle Grambo (#579)

Was this an outtake from the Hare Krishna scene in last night's MAD MEN?

GiovanniGF (#224)

So THIS is what Animal Collective looks like when they're not wearing costumes!

s. (#775)

I will never understand or be able to tolerate my generation's* need to make a spectacle of itself and be the centre of attention at all times. I'm also pretty sure that last sentence would be true of you stopped it just before the apostrophe.

*Whatever that means.

Time for Bernie Goetz's comeback tour.

deepomega (#1,720)

They are being super duper racist, right?

Tully Mills (#6,486)

So that's where Boulder goes when classes get out for the summer.
