Another sign of the End Times: Hipsters discover East Boston
By adamg on Tue, 04/26/2005 - 1:02pm
Carmeller spots the following ad on the hipsterati watering hole, i.e., craigslist:
East Boston (EaBo) loft coming in several months, 14'+ ceilings, walk to airport station, 800 square feet + 400 sf mezzanine, AC, roof rights, all stainless steel appliances, brand new. Don't wait to inquire. Come to Boston Magazine "hottest city neighborhood".
EaBo? EaFRICKINBo? I guess only people who drink SoBe can live in EaBo. Why not highlight its proximity to Logan Airport? EaBoLa!
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
We're so cool, we don't need your stinkin' nicknames
Oh, for the love of cheese. It's not as if "EaBo" saves even a single syllable from "Eastie." Besides, EaBo sounds too much like Tae Bo, so I can't help but think of Billy Blanks sweating on a video when I hear it. And Billy Blanks sweating is not really an image I find it necessary to envision in the course of an average day, although maybe that's just me. (Me = A non-hip but extremely content East Boston resident who prefers not to exercise in front of sweaty people on TV.)
I don't know that two posts
I don't know that two posts by the same tool real estate guy count as spreading, folks...
True, but ...
That means nobody stopped him after the first one.
I can feel the Starbucks waiting--lurking stealtily in the shadows, sharpening it's claws. Nothing can save us now--Evil summoned by a single contraction. ;-
Please, no! Anything but a Starbucks! Gaaahhhhhh!
