Monday News 'N Notes

Just a quick administrative note: you can now reach this site by going to silverspringsingular.com.

- The Silver Spring Rock Band Night that I proposed a couple weeks back remains in the planning stages, but will hopefully become a reality soon. Before you know it, we'll all be sucking down oat soda or Sioux City Sarsaparilla between plastic guitars jams. (Maybe even on Shomer Shabbos.) In the meantime, I'm trying to gauge interest, so please take a second to answer the polls I've added on the right hand side of the page.

- I hereby christen this neon installation on The Promenade "Lightsaber Battle".

- I’m uncertain if George and Weezy would ever choose to live at The Enclave, but the Post’s article this weekend on the complex includes a Jeffersons allusion, nonetheless. In all fairness, though, the author does reference their, um, mixed reviews on Apartmentratings.com, as I have in the past. Recent comments left on this blog ("This place is the equivalent to the threshold of hell") about the Enclave belie the claims of the management that the improvements have increased the quality of life there. Well, I guess as long as they can keep attracting unwitting out-of-towners relocating to Silver Spring they'll do fine...

Apartmentratings.com is a complete crock of **** and serves as nothing but a repository for bitter apartment tenants who just don't want to follow the rules or accept that rent goes up. It is also human nature that people are far, far more likely to complain about something they don't like than compliment something they do. It's only natural, then, that a site like Apartmentratings.com will get few good postings and almost exclusively bad ones.

I agree, but there are certain apartments on there with an overwhelming number of negative comments. In those cases, you have to accept that maybe it isn't such a nice place.

With regard to that particular complex, I know people who have lived there and they say the horror stories are true.

The Enclave is also enticing people with a $1000 Ikea gift card, which will be another great lure for newbs to the area...as much as I love Ikea, I wouldn't move to the Enclave for a $10,000 gift card.

Does IKEA sell rat traps?

I don't think IKEA sells rat traps, but they sold large -- about 18 inches long, including the tail -- "plush toy" rats at one point. (I know because I bought one as a toy for my cats a little while back) Maybe one could use those to try and scare off the real ones?

Maybe the Enclave could hire Lee to "make it rain" outside the leasing office too.
