“M79” in danger

February 26, 2009

Cross-town busIf you’re like me and your favorite Vampire Weekend song is “M79” (or even if it isn’t), listen up!

The M79 crosstown bus referenced in the song is just one of the New York City bus routes that risks losing its overnight service as part of the MTA’s proposed service cuts. Most of us in the five boroughs will be affected by the proposal, which includes huge fare hikes, less frequent subway and bus service, and completely eliminating some bus routes.

Visit the Comptroller’s website to find out more and to send a message to New York politicians letting them know how you feel about the proposed service cuts!

Interesting stuff today over at the Pretty Much Amazing! blog. I’m not ready to say that any of this is “pretty much amazing,” but did think it was worth pointing out:

  1. You can download “Golden Age,” a preview track from TV On the Radio’s Dear Science, which comes out on September 23. It took me a few listens to get to this point, but I do like it!
  2. Check out a Vampire Weekend cover of “Everywhere” by Fleetwood Mac. (You probably won’t particularly enjoy it unless you’re already a Vampire Weekend fan.)
  3. I’m not as crazy about this band, but there’s one song from Bloc Party’s new album too.
