Some protesters objected to city and the landlord’s depiction of the park and said some would try to remain, no matter what the city or Brookfield do. “Unsanitary? We have a cleaning department here,” said Junior Martinez, 23 years old, who lives on the Lower East Side when not camping out. He added: “Tents or not, we will sleep without tents. I think people are going to end up doing it no matter what.” [WSJ, earlier]

    So tent in Zucotti Park > apt in LES? Sounds about right.

    Everyone keeps talking about the hot hippie chicks…pics or they don't exist.

    Well, for certain definitions of "hot." Here are some topless ones. Again, this link is to TOPLESS chicks and is, by definition, NSFW.

    The members in that last category must *really* be experts in cleaning.

    No tents allowed, as I understand. The ordinance says no "structures" and the police are reportedly considering even a tarp over a pole to be a "structure." Should be interesting once Ma Nature starts intervening.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
