The bad part about living in Manhattan is you can’t see Manhattan’s skyline when you’re right underneath. The colors after tonight’s big electrical storm were some of the most intense I had ever seen, but I didn’t get many good snaps of it. Luckily, my boss, Rafat, lives in LIC, and so I’m appropriating his photos here.

Incredible sunset after the storm.

I went to see Obvious Child, a rom-com about an abortion, at Nitehawk Cinema at 4 in the afternoon on Monday. Much to my surprise (and the universe’s extreme irony) there were about 15 people in the theater, and seven of them were infants. But they were all very well-behaved infants, the kind whose gurgles and sweet sounds I didn’t mean hearing—maybe they were feeling more fortunate than usual that their parents decided to bring them into this world after all.

I loved the film and feel an unnatural adoration for Jenny Slate. The movie also pushed me farther along the road to trying out standup myself…
