Is Jensen running to be our next Parade Grand Marshall?

A resident in Taupeville sent me this image today. Maybe he can get a picture on the front of Etc. Magazine also;

is this “magazine” available north of 57th street?

So let me get this right, Taupeville doesn’t exist to some. Some even obsess as to why I obsess on Taupeville. Yet, Taupeville has its own magazine?….. Your Honor, I rest my case.

( and Woodstock adds: “Articles back 5G and tax cuts, huh?”…..”That sounds about right”…..”And let me guess, the ‘Forgotten Schools’ probably aren’t in Taupeville, are they?”…..)

Scott I know you usually tag your satire posts with a tag.

Please tell me this isn’t a real magazine? Who is publishes it? I don’t even want to know what other narcissists have graced its cover.

Well, to be fair, there is also available (and distributed in appropriate neighborhoodsl) ‘Eastside Living’ and ‘Parkside Living’ “magazines”.

May I lay wager that ‘Parkside Living’ is distributed neither in the neighborhood surrounding Heritage Park, nor in the Van Eps Park neighborhood?

(and most certainly Woodstock must muse, “At which street does Taupeville East begin? Is it Bahnson? Sycamore? Or that road formerly known as Powderhouse Rd?”)

My neighbors and I always joke about the mailer that we get a d always use “I am going to submit your family” is a mean joke. The feature stories are always about the families who are over the top with kids in sports and living these lavish lives lol Everyone around here mocks this stuff. Never stories of parents in the area who are tired after working their average 9-5 job and want their kids outside playing with neighborhood kids in regular non-structure non-trophey and awards fun, no kids and parents who dont have annual big vacations, and ect. There are plenty of us who exist south of 57th.

Guest, unfortunately it is a real magazine and we dont even request to have them mailed to us 🙁

If he wins a council seat, how long will it be before he takes cell phone bribes at meetings? It took Neitzert about a year before succumbing to local oligarchs. It’s important to buy at least 4 councilors. Otherwise, a mayor can be recalled and/or the charter returned to democratic principles.

To answer your question: South of 57th most definitely, but the taupe cancer is seeping north like a Ash Borer infestation. This taupe Pullman Town reality, however, is most noticeable as you head south on Western Ave past 69th Street and come to a high part in the road, where it is taupe for forever, or take 57th Street east and go over the railroad viaduct and beneath it is a sea of taupe, which usually only a Santa would notice, but all of this symbolizes conformity, obedience, and the inability to think outside of the box, and then you wonder why the rich get their tax cuts while the federal deficit balloons, and why what is left of the middle class – and the working poor, too – struggle for decent and affordable health care.

Some might laugh, but the symbolism of taupe in our community is far more threatening to our lower “d” democratic values and speaks of a conformity which discourages independent thought in a way that no politician can ever do by telling you if you can have a gun, how many, or what type.

You need to look into who is behind getting this issue paid for and published. You will probably not be surprised by what you find.
