It's amazing how fast they put up the Indoor Skydiving place, like it just appeared one day.
1. I can't help but wonder if there's any connection between the sign and, containers.

2. These ladies probably won't be able to use those containers.

3. Maybe they're familiar with the front entrance of this building.

4. Couldn't the customer or the delivery guy just walk the order over from the Noches de Colombia restaurant on Main St?

5. Slow day for deliveries (or maybe they're walking them over to Ward St)

6. In case anyone hasn't driven on Rt 4 westbound by Forest Ave in Paramus lately, this is what's replacing the Forum Diner.

(what's written on YouTube):

The Last Wurl (sorta like The Band's "Last Waltz", but WAY less musical)

A Wurlitzer piano - Model 2880 - was found inside the 395 Main St (Hackensack, NJ) demolition site.

From a distance, it looked to be in fairly decent shape, so efforts were made to give it away before it would have to be trashed.

There were no takers. A close inspection showed that it really wasn't as nice as we thought. You would need mega-musclemen to turn it upside-down and shake all the debris out of it.

When I was notified that today might be its last day, I went over to the site to hit the keys to make some know, give it a Last Wurl.

This video shows that it plays as well as I do.

Adios, 88s.

More sloppiness: in today's Record, whoever writes the photo captions doesn't know the difference between "photographs" and "photographers"...............TWICE in the same article.

Compared to what it once was, I pity The Record too, but I pity their readers much more. Have you read all the online vitriol against what they've done to this paper?

"Absolute garbage at this point. As bad as a handout. It appears Gannett, and the shameful people theyíve installed to run the operation, couldnít care less about the embarrassing product."

"Itís a slap in the face to those of us who counted on The Record for so many years to bring us localized journalism."

"...riddled with typos. I mean, come on, an occasional error is one thing, but every day I see several and it is annoying. Isnít the business of editors to, well, to EDIT?!?"

"An example of the Recordís crappy editing: I was reading about a football game last weekend. There was no final score in the headline or body of the article, just intermediate scores during a comeback scenario. Bush league."

Other complaints: local coverage is skimpy, more than half of the GOOD staff were let go and their content was replaced by articles from the Asbury Park Press, USA Today and other non-local sources, the print is much smaller, customer service has gone WAY downhill, they will not re-deliver if they missed you, the paper it's printed on has recently become very low-grade, and they're asking for large increases in the subscription rate for all these negatives.

There's actually not ONE thing I can think of that I could call an improvement since the takeover.

Can you?

I have some pity for The Record, believe it or not. In order to have the level of copy-proofing that we saw as children and young adults, they would have to hire many more people, and that would not be economical.  And these days, it's barely economical to run a newspaper at all, and they are folding one by one as readers gravitate towards other news sources, especially online sources.  At least we have them as a news source, and at least they are no longer in Hackensack meddling with local matters.
Binge-watching - the practice of watching multiple episodes of a television program in rapid succession, typically by means of DVDs or digital streaming.

This article doesn't recommend watching multiple episodes of a television program.......... it says to watch one episode of 5 different shows - hardly binge-watching and hardly worth taking up 80% of the front page of the entertainment (Better Living) section.
