Brooklyn Parents Can Now Teach Their Spawn to Spin


A proto-DJ learns to mix-a-lot. (

Developmental psychologists agree: by age 3, your baby should be way past its “killing the vibe on dance floors” phase.

Fortunately, you can enroll your dweeby infant or toddler in Baby DJ School at Cool Pony Crown Heights. Classes start September 18 under the sick-ass tutelage of Natalie Elizabeth Weiss, whose kiddy music classes at Brooklyn Inventgenuity Fest and Roulette Kids were both featured in The New York Times. In just 8 weeks, your 0 to 3-year-old will be whipping beats so sick they need hospice care.

The Non-Gender-Specific-Parent-and-Me class strives to infuse the typical atmosphere of a cross-generational sing-a-long with a “horrible parent who drags a baby to an after-hours party” vibe.  The class is sure to be a great way to prove to your Facebook friends that giving birth has not made you some lemming, and you may as well be the first Brooklynite to figure out human reproduction, so THAT’S why your latest mixed-media art piece is on hold, ADRIAN  introduce your child to the joys of music.

Let’s hope Baby’s First DJ Booth is high enough to keep MDMA users from swiping Junior’s pacifier.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
