Top Five Things I Hate About Miami This Week

5. Public Transportation
It's simply unreliable. The last time I tried riding the Metrorail, during a non-rush hour time slot, I was stuck waiting for the train for 35 minutes. According to the Metrorail's Web site, I should have only waited 15 minutes.

Also, the smell of urine is all too familiar when you use the Metromover.

4. Miami Nightlife

Unemployment in this country is the highest in years and, yet somehow, new clubs and restaurants keep popping up. It's great to have new venues. It's just a shame that I can't afford to go to any of them and only 3% of Miami's population can afford to go.

I'm getting bored of my usual haunts. Variety, after all, is the spice of life. It's just too bad that it gives you a two hundred dollar bill at the end of the night.

3. Traffic [my morning commute to work]
It took me an hour and a half to drive from Kendall to Brickell this morning! I was running late so rush hour was technically over. In theory then, traffic should of dissipated. But alas, it did not.

Also, has anyone been on the I-95 heading North lately? The construction madness and the addition of a Sun Pass lane has added 30 minutes to an hour and a half (depending on the time of day) to any commute. Who was the genius behind the Sun Pass lane? Few people use and it makes driving on the 95 even more painful.

2. Morrissey Cancelling his Concert on Feb. 28
His concert was at Boca Raton, so technically not in Miami. But I'm sure I'm not the only one who lives in Miami and bought tickets to the show.

This is the second time he cancels on South Florida. He did the same thing last year.

1. Morrissey
I bought the tickets as a birthday present. I had second row, center seats. I saved money for the show. So, it's worth mentioning again. I'm boycotting Morrissey. Please refer to my previous post for further details.


  1. The metrorail is not that bad, compare it to Detroit, Miami's mass transit is way better. Go see Depeche Mode instead and you'll be all set.

  2. Hey its Tina's little bro. Move to Phoenix! That will solve all your problems..

  3. I've seen Depeche Mode before and they're great live. I hope they come to the states this year.

  4. Phoenix? Maybe. What's the weather like there? Does it get cold?

  5. I know what you mean about the clubs. Over on our site we do nothing but talk shit about all these morons opening up places. A fool and his money are soon parted, but how the hell did the fool get the money to begin with?

  6. pod_bs: what's your site? I'd like to check it out.

  7. Anonymous: your comment made me laugh, I have to admit. But why don't you man up and tell me your name, bitch?

  8. Erf. Sorry. I run . We're not a blog so tread carefully as there's only "light" moderation.
