in my seven years in wburg sans automobile, i may have jeered at this, while sharing the "f*ck your stupid film" sentiment. now i have a car, and when the no-parking signs go up for even a couple days, it's a major hassle.

Now you know how the Cubans will feel when we rip their land from them and start plopping down hotels everwhere. Get in the way of big business and you get squashed.

hilarious!
this is almost a weekly event in my hood.
nothing's more annoying. it still sucks even when there's talent in them thar bitches.
but sometimes people remind me it's good for the economy. because they could go shoot in Toronto for a lot cheaper.
a few months ago a PA knocked on my door and asked me if i could somehow keep my dog quiet while a commercial shoot was going on next door.
i was nice, but only because the production company was where Mike Mills got his start. i wanted to explain to her that the reason my dog was barking was because of all the hoopla all her bitches were creating on my street. i also wanted to tell her that i was weeks away from putting my dog down and that she was enjoying her last few moments taking in the cool spring ocean-filled air, as her body continued on it's long slow painful slide into eternal decrepitude. but i didnt'.
Mike Mills. bitches.

good for the economy...sure they pay the city a fee for the permit to shoot, but where does that money go? we don't even get trash cans on our street corner. all the shooting in williamsburg, the money should go back to the neighborhood.

THE GOOD PART ABOUT FILM CREWS KILLING YOUR PARKING SPOT: If your car is already parked where they plan on shooting, say, tomorrow and you don't have time to move it, they move it for you. Let them deal with your alternate side parking hassles. I did it. They don't impound your car, they just move it and then they put a yellow note on the car for the police that says, "Do Not Tow or Ticket for Two Days (regardless of alternate side parking rules). All you have to do is call your local police precinct (311 can connect you) and they give you the street address location of your vehicle. Pretty cool, huh.

Film shoots are one of the many things that make life in New York a little more interesting. Which is why we all moved here in the first place, right?

If easy parking is your chief obsession, move to the suburbs.

we should be removing free on-street parking space permanently and replacing it with dedicated bus and bike lanes. get a grip, people. there's nothing in the city charter that says you have a right to store your massive, piece of crap vehicles on the street for free. i'm happy to see the space being used for something productive, like movie-making. i'd be happier to see you and your car move to long island if abundant parking is what's important to you.

At first glance you'd think this guy was pretty pissed; however, upon further inspection, you'll note he wasn't quite pissed enough to write out the full expletives.

Somehow he mustered the resolve, amidst his unbridled anger, to censor himself, thereby rendering his rage futile and the purity of his fury questionable at best.

He, and I'm assuming this fury belongs to a male with a late-90's Acura, is also quizzically selective with what he deems a curse or a bad word. For instance, "bitches" has been censored whereas "assholes" appears in its entirety.

Hmmm.

hey Anon, how about I park my massive crap mobile up your ass next to that rather large stick you've been carrying around.

"chief obsession" = "easy parking"? wow, that's like everyone i know!! not. some of us are cyclists. some of us ride in and have been organizers of that infamous monthly bike ride. having a car is not ideal, but when one's ageing family is dying off a few states away, the car helps.

God, thank god i moved out of that hell hole callednew york city. you all can have your movies and crazy laws.
