The big joke about people living in New York is that when they try to talk about living in New York, they sound like assholes. We've definitely done it before at some point in our lives, and if you live here you probably have too. It's a common enough thing that The Office once even made an (extended) joke about it. You'd think that with all the talk about the WILD NEW YORK NIGHTS and ENDLESS ARRAY OF UNDERGROUND CLUBS etc. etc. etc., we'd all be out all-night, every-night raging in underground clubs with, like, white tigers and small bears with humans on leashes just chilling and wandering through the multiple cavernous rooms. But that's not really the case, and we're generally okay with that 99% of the time we're awake. For that other 1% of our brains, we have this Blondes remix of Von Haze's "Outside the Night," which recasts the original's warbly creak as a hypnotic thumper that would be right at home in the super secret club underneath the shoe area of Century 21 that we just invented.
