Let me first just say that : It's Freezing and I am DJing tonight (Thursday) at the Lamp Post
I was so happy when myspace flopped, one less spot to bulletin, and yes, I may know a lot less about people what people had for breakfast, but ADD Blogging, chatting, video chatting, cellphones, and tv beat Prozac any day. I don't want my blog to be just a cut and paste from Facebook either, so I'll be doing some reexamination over the next couple of weeks to see how to best utilize my blog. So again, I am short on time..... blah blah blah, you know the wine, here's the cheese.
John Whiten, formerly of City Belt, has started a new online publication, the Jersey City Independent . In his words, it much like a City Belt 2.0, a little more polished, but still taking an independent look at events. Also taking a new look towards events in Jersey City is the newly formed One Jersey City party. The One Jersey City Political Group is supporting Dan Levin for Mayor and is also supporting two at Large candidates for the City Council. I have added links so you can read on about the new party, as you know I love parties.
