Welcome to The Suburban Outback

It’s happened again.  The quizzical stare – the wide smile – the head cocked to one side, all ending with the tentative, half-apologetic question.  And even though the asking of it vaguely irritates me, I cannot fault my latest inquisitor.  After all, she has driven more than an hour over the river and through the woods to attend a friend’s autumn gathering in their new second home in the country.  For the roads to be so rough, the neighbors must be rougher; and my husband and I are neither roug...

How Drummer Moe Tucker Defined the Sound of the Velvet Underground

A high school girl from Levittown, New York, the country’s first suburb, Maureen “Moe” Tucker hardly fit the profile of a rock star in one of the most influential bands of the 1960s. Then again, neither did any of the members of the Velvet Underground. Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, and Tucker had barely begun before Andy Warhol introduced them to Nico and billed them as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable, and it was Warhol who helped turn them into cult heroes. But Tucker made th...

A 4-0 Road Trip For The Toronto Maple Leafs

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun, With Sunday’s 5-1 win in Anaheim, they’ve not only swept three games in California, but all four on a trip that began a week earlier in Long Island. They’ve now tied the franchise record with seven consecutive away victories. “It’s a blast,” said goaltender Jack Campbell, who despite the lopsided score was needed to be clutch again in a mid-third period rally by the Ducks. “Whether it’s home or on the road, everybody’s ready to go and it t...

Azur Lane Gridman Event Rife With “Hilarious Poggers Memes”

Degenerate “localizers” have worked their evil on an innocent Japanese conversation in Azur Lane once again, this time forcing the sweet and innocent Long Island to utter inane memes that aren’t even in line with her personality, while the usage of the word “sus” yet again emerges to add an unneeded level of cringe to […]

This Week on TRB

Let me just say thank you for helping me raise more than $20,500 this month for the food bank fundraiser my seventh grader and his friends started.

Millennials, Remote Work Are Upending Cities—What It Means for Real Estate

Location is, and has always been, everything in real estate. The truism that where a property sits must be its most important characteristic remains undisputed. But what is location, really? What does it mean to homebuyers, and what are the consequences when changes come? The truth is, street layouts, public transportation systems, commuting routes, open space, walking paths, restaurants or shopping, parks, schools and scenic views are malleable both in how they are valued and how they come to b...

From the trade magazines: Impedance matching, AM flutter, DIY AI

Back to Basics: Impedance Matching By Lou Frenzel, W5LEF The term “impedance matching” is rather straightforward. It’s simply defined as the process of making one impedance look like another. Frequently, it becomes necessary to match a load impedance to the source or internal impedance of a driving source. A wide variety of components and circuits can be used for impedance matching. This series summarizes the most common impedance-matching techniques. Impedance Matching: Essential Design Know...

Aesop Rock Is Unstuck In Time

Aesop Rock first rapped over a Blockhead beat 24 years ago. At least, that was the first time that Aesop Rock rapped over a Blockhead beat on record. The Long Island rapper and the Manhattan beatmaker had become friends a few years earlier at Boston University. By the time Aesop self-released his 1997 debut album Music For Earthworms, Blockhead had already dropped out of college, though Aesop was still there. (He’d graduate a year later.) When Aesop made Music For Earthworms, he hadn’t yet becom...

An Open Letter To My Younger Self

Hi, it's me.  You don't know me, but in time you will. I have the benefit of time and experience on my side and wanted to share some thoughts with you if you're willing to listen. If you receive this, please know that it comes from a good place.  Let's talk about that time in high school when you ran with the cool kids for a short while before they rejected you. What they rejected was how hard you were trying to be something that you weren't. You'd think this experience would have taught you...

A private jet firm is using Honda's $5 million private jets to offer the wealthy a luxurious experience for less than the price of using larger planes

A Volato HondaJet Elite. Thomas Pallini/Insider Volato is a private aviation company using the HondaJet as its flagship aircraft. Wealthy flyers can purchase an ownership stake in the aircraft and pay an hourly rate of $3,200 plus fuel. The HondaJet is underutilized in the US but offers an impressively spacious cabin with a range of nearly 1,500 nautical miles. When Americans think of the name "Honda," chances are most of them aren't thinking about a private jet. But one company is l...

Contract Lawyers Face a Growing Invasion of Surveillance Programs that Monitor their Work

The attorneys worry that if law firms, traditionally the defenders of workers' rights, are turning to the programs, why wouldn't every other business? From a report: Camille Anidi, an attorney on Long Island, quickly understood the flaws of the facial recognition software her employers demanded she use when working from home. The system often failed to recognize her face or mistook the Bantu knots in her hair as unauthorized recording devices, forcing her to log back in sometimes more than 25 ti...

SLS Group Party Review: Real Sex in CT

On Saturday, July 7, 2018, we attended a house party in Wallingford, CT run by the group on Swing Life Style (SLS) called "Real Sex in CT."  We found the party by posting in the hot date section of SLS asking if anyone was attending or hosting a house/apartment/hotel party.  A single guy messaged us with the information.  The description reads: This house party on Saturday July 7th is from 9 PM till 1 AM with no admittance after 10:30 PM. No one will be allowed in unless you receive a confirm...

House Party Fail

On Saturday, May 30, 2015 we went to a house party in Queens.  This is the same party we went to for New Years Eve and blogged about under the title "New Years Eve House Party (Bringing in 2015 with a Bang)."  We think the hosting couple is wonderful, but we just have to be honest in these blog posts, so sadly, we have to label this party as a fail.  There were several reasons it was a fail, but we will just focus on the two most important ones.  One is that there was a major hotel takeover part...

New Years Eve House Party (Bringing in 2015 with a Bang)

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts for the last two months.  My laptop decided ten years was long enough on this earth and died on me.  We've gone to six parties since then, so I will be trying to write out those experiences and schedule them to come out once a week moving forward.  This post will discuss our little New Years Eve adventure. I've debated how to do the descriptions on the house parties.  Do I write the couple's screen name?  If I don't it really doesn't provide key informati...

House Party Review

On Saturday, October 25, 2014 we went to a house party in Long Island hosted by a couple we have known in the lifestyle for about a year now.  The party was scheduled to start at 9:30, however because we had a prior engagement to attend in Staten Island we were unable to make it until around 10:30 p.m.  This was a party that was on the smaller side with under ten couples.  I believe this was their second party and I know from personal experience throwing large vanilla parties almost every mo...

Deviate Party Network

On Saturday, August 11, 2018 we went to a hotel party hosted by the Deviate Party Network (DV8).  They advertise their parties on Swing LifeStyle (SLS). It is a hotel party where they block off an entire floor of the hotel and have designated party rooms on that floor and only lifestyle couples that are members of the group can book on that floor.  They also throw larger parties where they will block off several floors and reserve the ballroom for the party as well, similar to Fairfield & Westch...
