Curbed Readers Write: L Word, Pussy Galore, and Irony

1) Regarding Mo Vaughn's possible ownership stake in a Lower East Side lesbian bar, a Curbed reader writes, "When the girls' room first opened i was told by emcee/dj/pr chick God-des that this was another venture by the boys' room owner. not sure of names, though. is mo behind the boys'? IMO this place has a bad location...its too far east, even for my taste. and no, it hasnt become the next meow mix. *sigh*"
2) So James Bond is a hellish neighbor, eh? "Doesn't Sean Connery have, like, film-legend-beaucoup-I-own-the-whole-goddamn-townhouse-thank-you kinda bucks? The original Bond confined to just two floors? Does Pussy Galore sleep on the couch? I am completely disillusioned."
3) Regarding the saffron-hued development in Dumbo Manhattan: "The tower is yellow saffron because it is clad in a Georgia Pacific product, DensGlass Gold Exterior Sheathing. This is a weather- and mold-resistant exterior sheathing product which, in a triumph of marketing capitalizing primarily on mold fears, has taken the building market by storm." Who knew?
4) He was robbed on Orchard, but Road Rules vet Jake Bronstein lives on in the hearts of Curbed readers: "Please stop the insanity of this story. The idea that being told that he is an Editor at Large for FHM helps his credibility is almost laughable. I mean it's not Maxim or say Details, but FHM. What exactly are the job requirements to be an Editor at Large? Would a pair of Diesel Jeans and an Ironic T-Shirt be enough?"
