Flavors: Wednesday, October 17th
When I was finishing college, I lived in an apartment in Chelsea, and while it was a great neighborhood, my bedroom was about the size of large closet (complete with sliding pocket door), our “kitchen” was a very narrow hallway, and the constant bustle made me feel a little strung out. Our “landlord” was a giant management company that was difficult to deal with and the rent was “just too damn high” to continue on that way, even if Jack McBrayer DID live around the corner (he did.) Now I go back to that neighborhood and what few unusual places that were there when I moved out are mostly gone - I don’t know why I’m still surprised when everything turns into a Duane Reade/Starbucks/American Apparel/Bank of America but it’s somehow disheartening nonetheless.
So now, I am an assistant editor at a commercial post-production facility. I get to work on commercials for things like Dairy Queen, AND I still get wear whatever I want to work. In my spare time, I shoot photos and make videos of my own, and try desperately to find time to go to the post office. I run Brooklynography, which, unfortunately, has been a bit defunct lately as I’ve been busy with other projects on the side. I also spend a lot of time seeking out cool new things, eating delicious stuff, and playing with my new puppy Igby.
On top of making a super great product, Allison and Matt are the sort of friendly, outgoing, inspiring business owners who make a community what it is. And they don’t have some intern sitting behind the twitter, Allison pushes the buttons and stays in touch with a number of people I cannot even imagine. They personally work events where they’re selling their product! I’m pretty sure Matt and Allison have clone versions of themselves because I don’t know how they can do so much all the damn time. They care about their community and their customers and their family, and that is goddamn beautiful. Plus they give me free cupcakes sometimes.
PS: I’m from Maryland, nothing cool or exciting ever happens there.
I’m you’re muse! Oh, you’re just too much, Alison with your freakish “one L” in your name! Too much indeed!
Now go buy a cupcake or some whoopie pies or something and get yourself super stoked for Saturday!
