UCB's new sign now dictating how we should live our lives

As the Times reported on Friday, the Upright Citizens Brigade donated the old "Hot Chicks Room" sign to a nonprofit...

And now, check out the new sign that has taken the place of the "Chicks" here on Avenue A at Third Street ...

This new sign, of course, is an outrage. Not everyone wants to live comedy. We need to be free to live our own lives. This is just another example of the current oppressive state of America, in which our lives are ruled by government, Big Business and comedy clubs. We need to be able to exercise the freedoms that our constitution calls for. So don't live comedy, live as you see fit. Live drama!

And another thing... [Looking off page...]

Oh. You mean LIVE as in "actually being performed at the time of hearing or viewing"?

Never mind then.

So what's the over/under on someone having a problem with this sign?

Time Out's "SATCII" review begins on Page 69. (And is "stock your pantry" some sort of euphemism for sex that I'm unfamiliar with...?)

The footage that GM and Segway doesn't want you to see

The story made the rounds today about General Motors teaming with Segway to build a new type of two-wheeled vehicle designed to move easily through congested urban streets and help Mother Earth, which we're all for. As Gothamist noted, the P.U.M.A. -- Personal Urban Mobility & Accessibility -- was tested yesterday on the streets of New York. "Miraculously, no cabs or Hummers plowed into the thing, though the drivers presumably sustained some damage to their dignity."

However, what happened on the test drive later is being kept from the media. Apparently the P.U.M.A. was not well-received.

Here's the footage of the test drive that GM and Segway doesn't want you to see.*
