Fund for a Better Waterfront Open House and Video Launch Sunday May 19th 12-6pm

Filed under: Hoboken — Tags: , , , , — TheBoken @ 12:20 PM

Here is the latest event from the folks at The Fund for a Better Waterfront in Hoboken. Without their efforts, much of Hoboken’s waterfront would be inaccessible today….

FBW Open House & Video Launch Sunday, May 19, 2013 Noon to 6 pm

Neumann Leathers Building, Fourth Floor

300 Observer Highway, Hoboken, New Jersey

The Fund for a Better Waterfront is requesting Hoboken residents to see their plans for Hoboken and 12′ architectural model of Hoboken’s waterfront. Every hour on the hour, they will present our video, an interview with FBW architect and planner Craig Whitaker who talks about the essential elements of urban design and planning. In the video, Whitaker delineates the steps required to create a successful waterfront.

FBW Craig Whitaker Hoboken

FBW architect/planner Craig Whitaker is featured in new video

that will launch this May 19th at FBW Open House.

Mr. Whitaker is the principal of Craig Whitaker Architects based in NYC. He is the author of Architecture and the American Dream published in 1997. His recent design projects include preparation of a self-sustaining reuse plan for Governor’s Island, NY and a mixed-use plan for the World Trade Center site that restored much of the former street system. For fifteen years, he was the principal architect of Westway in NYC, a multi-billion dollar waterfront project.

In 1990, FBW hired Craig Whitaker to develop a plan for the Hoboken waterfront and has worked closely with Mr. Whitaker since that time. For 18 years beginning in 1988, Mr. Whitaker, as an adjunct professor, taught urban design at the Graduate Planning Program, Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service at New York University. He received his Masters of Architecture from Yale University in 1965.

In the same building, the Hoboken Gallery Walk will take place, also from noon to 6 p.m. Many artists working at the Neumann Leather Building will open up their doors to the public, so you will have an opportunity to see their artwork as well.

Funny Kmart Viral Video – “I shipped my pants”

Filed under: Video — Tags: , , , , — TheBoken @ 4:40 PM

I shipped my pants KMart Ad

Kmart may suck according the character known as Raymond Babbit in the movie “Rain Man” played by Dustin Hoffman, but this edgy Kmart ad has gone viral with its play on the phrase “I shipped my pants”. Personally I found it funny but humor can be subjective and this ad is risque. What do you think of this ad? Share your thoughts in the comments below:

Lou Lou the Barking Croaking Dog Frog Hoboken March 2103

Animals doing cute things always seems to make for a good laugh, especially on Friday’s. Here is Lou Lou with a unique bark outside of Empire Coffee earlier this week. Luluis doing her best to either impersonate a frog or trying to say the name Abbott. You be the judge….

Here are some permutations as to what the dog might be saying:

  • Nuns wear a ____________
  • __________ and Costello
  • Its a hard ___________ to break

Hoboken Leprecon 2013 Photo and Video Highlights

Hoboken Leprecon 2013

Here are some photos and a short video of goings on in downtown Hoboken today for Hoboken’s second annual Lepre-con or Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day. The guys in the above photo were great sports and I found the crowd generally to be better behaved (relatively speaking) and smaller than last year. There are some drunk people for sure but nowhere near as bad as two years ago when there was a parade. Of course there still is plenty of time for more incidents but my gut reaction is this will be even calmer than last year. That is not a bad thing for Hoboken. Parents were out doing bake sales with their kids so that is usually a pretty good indicator. Here is hoping for a safe conclusion of events tonight. TheBoken.com would like to thanks the many nice revelers who asked to have their photo taken. Thanks for your support in making this a fun event so far.

JibJab The Year of 2012 in Review

Filed under: Comedy,Video — Tags: , , , — TheBoken @ 9:45 AM

Every year JibJab does a year in review with a short jingle on America’s key events that at least deserve a parody such as Facebook’s IPO, Snooki’s motherhood, etc. The world did not come to an end despite interpretations of the Mayan calendar to the contrary which enables you to see and hopefully enjoy this video post 12-21-2012.
