An unintentional click on the comments page popped up this for me (and now, for you):

Smoove
Smoove is a French company that designs, manufactures and markets products related to bike-sharing. The company produces lightweight bike stands that require virtually no civil engineering and no electricity. The lock is on the bicycle, situated in the fork. It secures the bike in the stations and outside the stations with an auto-winding cable.

LL: I consistentized the "ft."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm
Alison Porchnik:

rrg - what a coincidence. The city just annexed about 50 feet of parking space on my street to install a bike-sharing station. Since I am a fan of bicycling and don't own a car I shouldn't mind, but visiting friends have to park, and parking is already at such a premium here.

rrg:

Well...okay. At least it's consistent now.

The band name "Peter Bjorn & John" bugs me. That's what they call themselves but there should be some commas in there.

Laura L:

@rrg, do they ever play on their own as "The Jazz Messengers"? I think even if they do I would keep it lowercase, as it's a definite article that is part of a band title. Thank heavens for the consistentization that just occurred!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm
rrg:

Yeah, I think that just about everyone (except Mr. Bloomberg and a few bikers) is pissed off at the appropriation of already-scarce car parking space for bicycles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm
rrg:

We had this discussion before, Laura, and you more or less agreed with me. This flip-flopping hurts.

I'm sticking with upper-casing the definite (and indefinite) articles in band names for now.

Laura - what's your feeling about The Bronx vs. the Bronx? Working in T/the Bronx, I have occasion to write borough's name often was taken to task by some Bronxites for not capitalizing the article, which is traditionally how the name was written. So I went back to The Bronx, even though it wasn't being written that way much at Lehman. But recently I've seen so many inconsistencies, and now it seems even some official Bronx websites and signage have made the switch, either intentionally or unofficially. Being a fan of consistency I've switched back. But I'm also a fan of tradition like the serial comma. What would you do?
  3:41pm
Laura L:

@rrg--I'm being inconsistent, it's awful, isn't it! Must be the dreary weather. I still read "ft." as "feet," and so I want to know how tall S. Jemmett and M. Rodríguez are.

Laura L - how do I explain this to angry Bronxites who insist that because the article is part of the name it should be capitalized (and they have the weight of tradition behind them)? They do have a point. But I like it better with a l/c L.

Finished the show this morning. Music was wonderful of course but hearing you two just talk was pretty fantastic as well. And coincidentally, reading Uncut and their feature on Jeff Buckley this morning on my train noticed Hal quoted about the concert and sidebar on Nick Hill and the “box set” he has ready to go. Interesting read.
