I particularly like the Deathstar lazer backsplash on the Twitter homepage! Lonely universe, eh?

Wouldn't it be just so hilarious if 51 Astor Place offered St. Marks Books a huge new store for $1/month rent for ten years? #ButICanDreamCan'tI?

The @51deathstar page is following just one other user, a page belonging to the East Village/Lower East Side blog evgrieve.com. It was not immediately clear if there was any connection between the two pages.

There's zero connection between EVG and the 51 Astor account... except that I find it funny...
