Hoboken photo remains of the week: September 20, 2014
In the Hoboken Photo Leftovers gallery below:
- Photo 1: Say what you want about the new Tally-Ho Saloon, but it’s pretty much a good old-fashioned regular bar. Not too many of those left in town these days.
- Photos 2-3: Wow, our waterfront is shoddy. Workers from “Aqua-Mist Irrigation” were ripping Pier A Park up to make repairs. Guess we didn’t negotiate a warranty?
- Photos 4-5: For the pooches. Did you know that Rita’s Ice gives out free “pup cups” so our four-legged friends can have a taste of frozen custard?
- Photo 6: Nice sign Kure Pilates has, right? I guess they can afford it with the near mortgage payment membership fees.
- Photo 7: “Love the smell of crosswalk paint burning through property taxpayer dollars in the morning.” Remember, the more “amenities,” the more they pickpocket YOU.
- Photos 8-9: Last but not least, Smokin’ Barrel has their signage up. And the plethora of big-screen TV’s are all working. Hey, it’s your time I guess.
A gorgeous weekend in store. Don’t squander it away glued to the idiot box!

Suckers: People’s Climate March demonstrates human gullibility
As you’ve seen from all the visual spam posted on trees and telephone poles throughout Hoboken, there will be a massive “People’s Climate March” over in NYC this weekend. Sure is perfect timing after one of the coolest and most comfortable summers in memory.
The NY Daily News posted an article about it recently, and we’ll dissect some of the moronic paragraphs below…
Massive People’s Climate March to seek solutions to global warming
(For one, the headline is making the assumption we have problems that require solutions…)
“Nearly two years after Hurricane Sandy’s devastation made the age of extreme weather impossible for New Yorkers to ignore, our city is about to host the largest mass protest around global warming in history.”
Age of extreme weather? Hello, McFly, hurricanes have always prowled the earth. Every hundred years or so, they make their way up to our neck of the woods.
“Organizers predict more than 100,000 people will parade down Midtown streets Sunday for the People’s Climate March.”
100,000 customers to sell over-priced green crap to. Ka-ching!
“Public support for the protest by some of the nation’s biggest energy corporations, is a clear signal that activism around climate change has become mainstream.”
Leaving out the all-too-important fact that it’s only become “mainstream” due to decades of repeated misinformation and innumerable suckers to soak it all up.
“People get it now,” said Paul Gallay, director of clean-water group Riverkeeper. “Ever since Sandy, there can be no doubt that climate change is real. We need to be in the streets, to make sure the politicians listen to us.”
Paul is right. The climate changes all the time, but not because we had anything to do with it. And there they go again, milking Sandy’s utters until they’re dry. Big, bad fear-mongering at it’s finest.
“In cities across the country, hundreds of buses have been chartered for Sunday’s event, while solidarity protests are scheduled in more than 150 countries, says Bill McKibben, a national organizer of the event and director of an environmental group.”
If those “environmental” groups were so concerned with carbon emissions – why the fuck are they taking buses? Why don’t they walk their lazy asses to the dopey march – regardless of how far or long it would take them?
“In Staten Island, Beryl Furman of the North Shore Waterfront Conservancy has seen a big response by minority and low-income residents who face constant flooding problems from the nearby Kill Van Kull tidal basin. “We’ve already seen people becoming climate change refugees along the South Shore after Sandy,” Furman said. “We can’t deal with the whole idea of starting over again every time that we get hit with another northeaster or hurricane.”
When will these idiots get it? You live in a risky area – you think you can control Mother Nature? Good luck with that. Move away from the water, you nincompoops!
“We have members from places like Guyana and the Philippines who know what climate change means in their countries. Something’s got to be done now to stop things from getting worse,” union vice president Estela Vazquez said.”
No they don’t know what “climate change” means. Let’s correct that: “They’ve experienced natural weather in the environment they chose to live in.” You ever wonder why you don’t see “Volcanic Eruption Marches?” Because they haven’t figured out a way to politically take advantage of the earth’s core yet. But don’t be surprised if that’s next.
See the entire dopey article here. No real “journalists” exist anymore. They’re just parroting total bullshit day after day, and they completely forgot how to ask the ultimate money question: “Qui Bono?”

Olive Garden luring Americans with “Never Ending Pasta Pass”
Olive Garden recently had a promotion, featuring
diabetes a “Never Ending Pasta Pass,” which for a mere $99, you can eat all the pasta you want for seven weeks! The promotion sold out in minutes as nearly a million boneheads bombarded the Olive Garden website in order to snatch up this belly-busting deal.
If you haven’t woken up yet, those carbs will hurt ya! I bet anyone taking that promotion to the fullest will undoubtedly impact their health in a very negative way.
Even sadder is the fact that over 6 million people are fans of those “endless bread sticks” and other insulin-wrecking food-stuff that is plain and simply dangerous to eat regularly, especially in excess. But it’s “cheap” and tasty, so what do people care, right?
David Letterman’s Top 10 “fine print clauses” for this pasta-shoveling stunt is hilarious!

At what point to just say NO to Apple iPhone 6 upgrade?
Our Hoboken Week in Review quote a few weeks ago was spot on: “Don’t obsess over having the ‘latest’ version of a product. For there was a time that the previous version was the latest.” Anyone lining up for the new Apple iPhone 6 should probably remember that.
Take a look at this sign outside the Verizon Wireless store on Washington Street. Even though the phone was “released” today, it tells passerby to “pre-order” the new phone, and to “don’t get left behind.”
Exactly how would you get “left behind” anyway? Heck, I know people with iPhone 4′s, and even others with non “smart” regular flip phones that can barely text! They seemed to have survived.
About the only thing you’ll be leaving behind is your money and your privacy.

Louise & Jerry’s set to re-open in Hoboken
Almost two months since closing for renovations, Louise & Jerry’s at 329 Washington Street is almost set to open up again. One day next week, you’ll get to enjoy an ice-cold drink in a comfortable and relatively unpretentious watering hole again.
Some locals were a bit nervous that “L&J’s” would become “tool-infested,” and lose it’s charming Hoboken “dive bar” characteristics. But due to many age-related structural concerns, building codes, and other reasons, it was no-doubt time to spruce the joint up.
With beautiful exposed brick, and a custom-built mahogany bar, L&J’s still has a welcoming feel. A few flat tv’s, an upgraded pool table, energy-efficient LED lighting, improved HVAC are all positive changes to the Hoboken staple which has been part of the community for well over five decades.
Others missed the “old school” CD jukebox, and were concerned with the “web connected” digital player. But apparently you can still request any classic songs to be included in the choices, and bartenders can over-ride the device if some musically-challenged idiot decides to play $20 worth of Katy Perry songs.
Welcome back, L&J’s!
Description: Bar with Juke Box, Pool Table
Address: 329 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030
Telephone: (201) 656-9698

Bow Tie Cinemas Movie Times Hoboken NJ
One of three new movies opening this weekend is A Walk Among the Tombstones, starring Liam Neeson.
“Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime… nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again.”
The movie has limited reviews – which may make you doubt whether it’s good – but it seems to be getting decent marks despite it being a “cookie cutter” type thriller. Will add to the used DVD list before the end of the year (probably around November).
