Standing on the box

2005-05-03 14:41:06.986341+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

I don't know if I find it germaine enough to my life to make it part of my regular reads, but standingonthebox.blogspot.com is "Clublife: An online narrative of the life of a bouncer at two of New York's most popular nightclubs." You ever been out at night in New York and thought "the world would be a better place if someone applied some smackdown to about half the people in here"? Yeah, this guy and his co-workers are justice applied:

"What happened to him?" I asked, gesturing toward the customer.

"Him? Oh, he's just upset that he got pinched."

I took a closer look and noticed that a bouncer named "Louis" was gripping the customer's hand, across his knuckles, with a pair of pliers.

Well written narratives of life policing New York's seedier $1,000-minimum-tab underside.

Damn... There's goes some more of my productivity. That guy can write well enough to make me want to read about something I'm not even vaguely interested in.
