15 and a half hours sounds long, but reading that book (even in English translation) would probably take longer. It's dense. Alexanderplatz is like the "Five Points" area of New York: a historically gritty and mean slum of slums. And both are thankfully chronicled in pictures/literature, a...

The new NYCT subway cars cut the noise by a huge margin, in my experience, but that won't matter just yet unless you live on the 2/4/5/6 or L lines. The first of the newest line of cars is still in testing on the "A" line.

London = slow, delay, total line shudown catastrophe much more often than anywhere else. Plus, you'll need a crowbar to jam yourself onto a train at rush hour.

Berlin on the other hand...sweet jesus, they run a fantastic subway.

Well, they're considering re-making the Gowanus portion of 287, but I think they'll end up building a tunnel and it won't be that painful a construction process. But, yes, sounds like you have some quite SMART people running things. You'll never hear me say anything poor about the MTA, unless it's 3...

Only a theory, but if I had to guess... Back catalog is going to go to download services exclusively in the very near future, I think - with a more Japanese-style limited release of media when they feel the sales merit. Especially with Mediaplay gone, Tower going out of biz, FYE probably next, and B...

The whole operation is a cockup from start to bottom, presided over by a man (SH) who doesn't empower the competent to make decisions (see how long it took to ease Dave out) and doesn't stand behind the decisions of his unpaid moderators. Not that I agree at all with JWB's ban (far from it, in fact ...

In that case, it sounds like he's scared of losing business to MoFi. He obviously knew ahead of time what was going on and was laying some negative comments down before their full meaning could be parsed.
