But what's so bad... handsome guy flexes his muscles and goes to a few parties and restaurants. Not sure he needs to be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

there's something quite potent about the mixture of being beautiful, rich, young, and making a video about your weekend which shows these things without addressing them directly. it's very unobtainable for almost everyone so that's always going to wind people up. but i also found something quite naive and sweet about the video as well.

For some reason I'm reminded of a review on yelp of a bar that a lot of our friends work in - they weren't impressed to be described as "So young, so beautiful, so mindless".

since I started coding I've been watching Mr. Robot and Dasha whatsername cameos as basically herself in a later episode and it's some of the worst, most wooden acting I've ever seen which made laugh if only bc the whole point of all these ppl as to play heightened versions of themselves as reality TV for a certain strand of ultra-cultured young folx, so you'd think she'd nail it but nope, it's like NFL quarterback hosting SNL level bad

also my advice to everyone is to not care/stop caring/go back to not caring about what some oblivious 26 year old does with his weekend. the fight to not have greater Manhattan (i.e. plus adjacent of other boroughs esp Brooklyn) be just a playground for rich ppl was lost decades ago - i.e. the Tompkins Square police riot was 34 years ago - so it's not like it should be some great surprise, and one clueless fool bouncing around that playground won't change anything for anyone.

I did. Currently 8 weeks through a 14 week boot camp. got through intro and Python stack, currently on MERN, then probably Java (we get to choose between that and C#, prob going Java).

edit: guess we can DM if necessary to not derail thread, but yeah
You interested in blockchain programming? Gus is your guy there.

Editor Nick Robins Early, who has lived above Clandestino for a decade, says that a few years ago he and his friends were having drinks — at Clandestino — and laughed when they saw “this NYU-student type sipping a Manhattan while holding aloft a book on film theory and looking around to see if anyone was noticing. Now there’s 50 of him almost every day of the week.”
