I think I bought a different issue/edition than Opera's though. Mine doesn't have the salary listings on the back of the magazine and I think the cover is different. I tried looking for the cover picture Geoanthem posted to compare it but I think it was taken down.


Damn. I should move to Brooklyn. Is the information the same, though?


Nah, E. Village > Brooklyn.

Yep, everything else is good.


E. Village rent >>>>>Brooklyn rent. Well, in some neighborhoods anyway

Yeah, probably everywhere but Brooklyn Heights.

Cobble Hill 1840s brownstone FTW!

If I ever move, that is.

You get to check out free shows on the subway in Brooklyn, which cuts down on costs as well (assuming you factor 'live shows' as part of your living costs, which I think most people should): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sn1ZVs3DG6U

Yeah true. But Manhattan gets a lot more "live subway shows" than Brooklyn. A lot more tourists to shell out some change. Maybe we can argue that Brooklyn's quality > Manhattan's?

I would think so, but I'm not an expert on these matters. I live in Nashville now, and we don't have subways here. But 1) the Eskalators are pretty awesome, all 14+ members, and 2) I've played a "live subway show" in Manhattan and I would not consider myself a quality musician. Actually, it was a dueling harmonica battle with some other guy on the other side of the cart, which I conceded once he busted out a trumpet.

However, lesson: always carry a harmonica with you in NY if you have one. The ability to make music with strangers and get random people to keep rhythm who otherwise wouldn't even look at each other is both rare and oddly rewarding.

To do list:

1. Buy an harmonica.
2. Learn how to play one.

They're very easy to play. I rank instrument difficulty (from most difficult to least difficult) as follows:

recorder > glass jug > harmonica > kazoo > guitar hero.

[subtle guitar-hero-is-not-difficult trolling].

They made a mistake with Nebraska, I guess they had the wrong data dealing with employment rates after graduation. Not sure who is to blame but very unfortunate for us! Hopefully next year we won't "drop" too much more because of this!
