BROOKLINE - - 1) APARTMENTMAN JOHNNY BORING (TM) get off of that roof and take off those silly red tights." "Oh mom, I am supposed to go on a mission with Captain America and Ironman at three o'clock. " "We're going to help find a home for Daredevil in Boston. " "Who" "You know Daredevil, the Person without Fear, alter ego of Matt Murdoch, and Victoria's Secret model for red leather chaps. " "Red leather what, " comes the reply from a slightly disconcerted, yet painfully devoted mom. (If you haven't seen the movie Daredevil with Ben Affleck, this probably won't make much sense. But let's just say the uniform in the movie looked more like an ad for North Beach Leather than a super hero uniform. Anyhow, back to mom.) "JOHNNY, where did you get the idea that super heroes flew around looking for apartments " "Super heroes do super things like save the world from evildoers " "Well mom, there was a job workshop at school and the teacher said that the normal super hero job market was flooded and to be able to make a living I would need to think outside the super hero box. (Work with me on this. I know that the outside the box phrase is always used by self help experts who are always so in the box it makes you sick, but I needed a transition phrase so this is it). " So, I have decided to dedicate my life, and limited intellectual resources, to the pursuit of justice and apartments for those in need of a place to live." "Are you serious JOHNNY" comes the response from his loving, yet slightly disillusioned mom " Is there something wrong with that" comes the answer from our red tighted, roof hopping hero of the home seeker. " And in case you have any doubt of the adolescent dedication of JB, here is the apartment you have been waiting to hear about as proof of the value of early career selection.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN STUDIO in completely renovated building As APARTMENTMAN (TM) sits at his desk editing weight loss articles for Cosmopolitan Magazine, (One of the few positions in today's economy that has complete job security for life.), he gets bored and decides to look around the neighborhood with his X-ray vision. He takes an X-ray vision tour of the local grocery stores. (Including all those wonderful Organic type stores which we all have been sucked into believing really are concerned with the environment as we like to believe we are.) What is the first thing he happens upon, the cereal section. Lo and behold what does he see as he peers into the boxes of the cereals that line the shelves. Something is wrong. The outside of the box is huge. It proclaims in bold letters 15 ozs. The paper box, made from one of thousands of trees that have been felled in the mad need for oversized paper boxes is huge. However, when he looks inside what does he see but a small cellophane bag filling about half the box with a few crumbs of cereal. A nefarious plot, a corporate conspiracy, a huge waste of paper and trees in the mad quest to dupe the consumer! Who knows. Oh ya, you want to know about the apartment. Here it is. DIMENSIONS/ DESCRIPTION OF APARTMENT: Hallways and common areas are recently and beautifully painted a pale yellow with white mouldings and trim. The hallway floor is carpeted with a deep blue, which accents and contrasts with the yellow walls. New electrical throughout.

The bedroom/living area is approximately 11x 12 feet. The floor is an antique tongue and groove hardwood floor that has been recently sanded and refinished so that it shines like new.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN . Sitting behind the counter at his new job at Starbucks, JOHNNY BORING (TM) sweeps the coffee grounds from underneath the rubber mats lining the Starbucks floors. How did this happen How did he go from being the 19 year old president of his own dot com start up, to sweeping coffee grounds How can it happen that one moment you're sipping double iced lattes in Seattle chatting stock option strategies with Bill Gates, and the next moment "Billy" won't even return your phone calls. (Maybe it was a little presumptuous to call him "Billy" but, heh, he seemed like such a pal.) Suddenly the reveries of his former financial superstardom are shattered by a voice from across the counter "Heh, I want a decaf double latte with low fat milk. and a non fat scone." (Is there really such a thing as a non fat scone ) Needing to escape from the shackles of his daily routine, JOHNNY BORING (TM) utters one of the many phrases that allows him to escape the absurdity of someone with a Ph.D. in molecular biology from MIT cleaning the rest rooms in Starbucks. The words come readily to his pursed lips "Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum, APARTMENTMAN (TM) here I come." (There are those of you out there who may not appreciate the poetic artistry of super hero transformation phrases. Granted W.B. Yeats will not feel threatened by the foregoing. However, as a former student with a D- grade in poetry, JOHNNY BORING (TM) struggled to determine what phrase would convey sufficient super hero gravitas, but was simple enough for him to remember it. Hence the clever little ditty.) In a flash JOHNNY BORING (TM) is transformed from from serf of the stars at Starbucks, into the hope of apartment seekers everywhere, APARTMENTMAN. (These momentary flights of fantasy do help to keep me somewhat sane so thank you for bearing with me.) Using his telescopic vision coupled with his x-ray vision APARTMENTMAN (TM) sees in the distance the apartment you have so patiently been waiting to hear about.. Here it is!! DIMENSIONS/ DESCRIPTION OF APARTMENT: First floor of a 4 story brick building You enter into a hallway with hardwood floors that measures 6 ft x 3 ft. With 1 closet. ( All of the floors except in the bathroom are refinished hardwood) To the right is the bathroom which measures 6 ft x 5 ft. Straight ahead is the living room which measures 12 ft x 16 ft with two floor to ceiling windows and 1 closet. The kitchen measures 7 ft x 6 ft with new wooden cabinets and a new electric range.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN. As "APARTMENT (TM) MAN" sits and views the ashes of a civilization destroyed through the carnage of rent wars he sees in the distance a ray of hope for the future. Can it be An apartment in Brookline for under $2000./mo. Are there any real estate developers in sight to inform this landlord that anything under $2000./ mo. will bring down the prices for all. Hmm! APARTMENT MAN (TM) slowly raises himself up, focuses his x ray eyes on the edifice in the distance and beholds a haven for the tired and the weary of the apartment wars.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN As APARTMENTMAN (TM) stands behind the counter of his new day job, he gazes out the window with his telescopic vision and ponders the meaning of life. Eternal issues of right and wrong, good and evil pulse through his brain. What does it all mean Why are we here What do we value as a culture From across the counter comes the answer. "I want a double non-fat frappachino and a non-fat blueberry scone ." At that moment, as a tear comes to his eye, he realizes that the hours spent studying Plato, Rousseau, and Voltaire have all prepared him for this moment. Can he meet the challenge He looks his intellectual opponent in the eye, and, using the analytical abilities that have been honed at the finest institutions of higher learning, he quickly retorts, "Is that for here or to go" Having met the challenge, APARTMENTMAN (TM) now scans the horizon continuing his search for affordable housing in Boston.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN As APARTMENTMAN (TM) sits at his desk trying to determine why he is the only person in the world who did not make a 20 million dollars in the stock market during the boom years, APARTMENTMAN (TM) PHONE RINGS. Before he can say anything a voice comes over the line, "Martha, no matter what they try to say remember that we had an oral order to sell when the price hit 95. "You only made $275,000.00 so don't worry thats just peanuts." Stunned, APARTMENTMAN says, "can I help you" "Who is this" comes the voice from the phone.

"Um, maybe I should call you back after I talk more to her about what we need." Suddenly the phone hangs up and APARTMENTMAN smiles and sits calmly. He now knows the answer he had been trying to determine earlier. Why didn't he make the 20 million in stocks like Martha or $200,000. in Pork Bellies like Hillary Well maybe it's because he didn't know who to call. Hum.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN. As APARTMENTMAN (TM) sits by his desk he is beset by boredom and decides to take a flight around Brookline. He recites the secret phrase that magically transforms him from JOHNNY BORING (TM) into that roof hopping hero of apartmentmaent hunters everywhere, APARTMENTMAN. (TM) ( The phrase is secret which is why I cannot divulge it in this ad. ) As he leaps out the window, preparing to hop among the clouds, he hears from above, look out. (This is an especially useful phrase to all those superheroes who regularly traverse the highways of the heavens.) However, the warning comes too late. APARTMENTMAN (TM) and another warrior of the rent wars tumble earthward. Landing in the recycling bin below (Since this is near environmentally aware and sensitive Brookline the presence of a recycling bin should come as no surprise) Standing up amid the rubbish APARTMENTMAN (TM) is confronted with the craggy faced countenance of Ben Grimm. (Otherwise known to fans of the Fantastic Four as The Thing.) Stunned, APARTMENTMAN (TM) blurts out, You can' t fly. Thats why I fell on you moron, replys a slightly ruffled but otherwise resolute Ben Grimm. Well what were you doing up here. I was coming to you to see about an apartment and as I was getting out of the Fantastic 4 Car I tripped. "Huh" comes the oratorical reply of our verbally challenged minion of the masses. I need a studio, Well here it is. DIMENSIONS/ DESCRIPTION OF APARTMENT The living room is sunny all day and has 6 windows surrounding it and looks out on the trees that surround the building. New cabinets in the kitchen and newly tiled bathroom make this apartment shine. Huge walk in closet. Laundry is located in the building. The T (both C and D) lines are less than a block way.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN In the continuing saga of "APARTMENT MAN," our hero has just finished attempting to find work that would take full advantage of his native skills, as well as his slightly less than marketable college degree. Where to find the job that would allow him to use his unbridled imagination and creative abilities to the fullest Where to employ a mind that still believed that "The Hobbit " was an accurate account of human history. Studying the help wanted section of his local paper an opportunity appears. "Vice president in charge of creative price tagging/marketing needed at "Needless Markup," a local well known retail store Experience in inducing an irrational buying frenzy in homo sapiens a plus. " (You can insert whatever retail store name you like !) What is a vice president in charge of creative price tagging/marketing How will working as a price tagging clerk help our hero of the homeless flex his flagging, flaccid intellect Good questions !! To a lesser mind a price tagging clerk, even a vice president, is someone who merely spends days attaching price tags on items for sale in all local retail stores. However, to our undaunted, product of the American educational assembly line, the chance to take full advantage of the creative opportunities are clear. He will be employed marking up sales prices !! He can create whatever he likes. How far can he push the creative envelope Louis Vinyl purses on sale for $400.00, reduced from $3,000.00, a possibility. (Talk about marketing. How did anyone get anyone to pay these prices for an ugly vinyl brown bag ) Dresses on sale for $200.00 reduced from a $1,000,000. 00 . What was the product actually worth Who cared !! Did anyone ever ask or check if a sale item was ever really offered for sale at the original price Of course not ! Merely being on sale was enough. The possibilities were endless. He could imagine the lines outside the stores. He could imagine the legions of shoppers at "Needless Markup" shrieking as they scooped up the last of the hot pink spiked heels on sale for $375. reduced from $1,500.00. He would influence history. Just then, the phone rang and it is you, the reader of this ad calling to ask about the apartment. Here is what you will be told about the apartment you have been patiently waiting to hear about. DIMENSIONS/ DESCRIPTION OF APARTMENT: See photos This is a completely renovated studio There is a large walk in closet in the living area which measures 5 ft x 2.5 ft. There is also a large walk in closet in the foyer that measures 6 ft x 2.5 ft. Straight ahead of the foyer is the bathroom which measures 6.5 ft x 6 ft and has been completely retiled with new vanity and lights.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN: Sitting at a meeting for the marketing/ real estate company that pays his salary, newly hired Johnny Boring (alter-ego of Apartmentman) listens intently as his bosses tell of the next marketing campaign. His boss begins: "We have just been hired to sell (50 ) multi million dollar homes in the Boston and San Francisco area over the next 12 months. Here are a few of the less expensive prospects in the San Francisco area. Two bedroom ground floor fixer upper condo with views of the alley. Hot and cold running water included. Space for a kitchen off of the bedrooms if you feel the need for a kitchen. Shared bathroom with your neighbors who are a fine couple working the night shift at Starbucks to pay off student loans. " Raising his hand Johnny Boring receives the glare of his boss who simply feels that new hires should just listen. And yet, he leaves his hand raised to the amazement of his peers. Finally realizing that his petulant glare will not deter the likes of Johnny Boring his boss audibly sighs and nods toward his relentless neophyte employee. You have a question Standing nervously, Johnny B blurts out " Do you really believe that people are really going to spend a million dollars on a ground floor condo with a view of the alley without a kitchen, and a shared bathroom As he stands at the end of the unemployment line Johnny Boring reflects upon his choice of question as a learning process....

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN As APARTMENTMAN (TM) sits at his desk he bemoans the fact that he cannot go for a flying journey around Boston until his super hero cape arrives. I can hear you asking, Where is it Well, APARTMANTMAN (TM) ordered it from the super hero "cape warehouse" out west and they promised to send it out by UPS " ASAP". Did it get here ASAP Of coarse not which is why APARTMENTMAN (TM) is telling you this story. After waiting forever for the cape, APARTMANTMAN (TM) came home one day (Tuesday) to find the famous UPS sticker attached to his door. "We attempted delivery. Next attempt will be after 5:00 on Wed. How much after 5:00 is the wonderful mystery of the UPS System. Thinking he could find a better way, APARTMENTMAN (TM) calls the infamous 1-800 number since he knows his satisfaction is paramount in the mind of Corporate America. After 20 minutes of being told that his call was important to them, a mechanical, emotionless voice tells APARTMENTMAN (TM) to just enter the bar code number and his package will be held for him at the station. Jumping with glee our hero follows the directions and smiles to himself as he anticipates picking up his cape on the morrow and resuming his airborne antics, cape in hand or, actually, on back. Arriving at the Watertown UPS station as instructed, our hero approaches the counter ticket in hand. The clerk takes the ticket, punches in the computer and voile tells APARTMENTMAN (TM) that the package is out on the truck to be delivered today. Wasn't it requested to be held here says our hero Looking at his computer screen the clerk replies, Yep it was but our communication system is not terribly good. Is there a customer service number I can call here Well actually you can call the 1-800 number and maybe they can help you. " So there is no local number or person I can talk to to help me get my package "That's correct." comes the response.. Knowing the importance Corporate America places upon individual consumers and customer service APARTMENTMAN (TM) decides to forego the quicksand like swamp of the 1-800 jungle. Frustrated, but not yet beaten our hero takes to the streets and what does he see but a UPS truck. Pulling up behind the truck he warily approaches the driver and asks if he has the package sought. No replies the driver but here is a local 617 number to call. Like magic, the number is dialed, a human answers the phone, and within an hour the package is located and delivered by the truck driver who took the time to give him the phone number. Is he the head of human resources Is he the head of customer service No, just a driver without a title, trying to help. With cape securely on his back APARTMENTMAN (TM) can now fly over the apartment you have been patiently waiting to hear about.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN As APARTMENTMAN (TM) sits at his desk reading the new 5000 page bestseller entitled, "The Arthur Anderson Theory of Creative Accounting," the "A" phone rings. (APARTMENTMAN (TM) phone) This is the White House comes the voice over the phone. The white house on Harvard Street answers our gullible hero of the homeless. No stupid, THE WHITE HOUSE IN WASHINGTON" comes the disgruntled reply. The big guy, aka the president, needs a place near an intellectual mecca so he can hone his verbal skills and polish his intellectual reputation. "What intellectual reputation" replies our seeker of shelter. "So you do understand our dilemma," comes the voice over the phone.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN In need of a break from the frantic pace of city life in Boston JOHNNY BORING (TM), and his alter ego APARTMENTMAN, (TM) sit in a cafe reading MOBY DICK and soaking in the atmosphere inherent in the Boston cafe scene. (I can see you all shaking your heads and saying "MOBY DICK" ugh. Well that's the reading selection so just bear with it. At least "you" aren't reading it.) Suddenly an idea flashes into JOHNNY BORING S (TM) mind. How about a whaling adventure !! How about retracing the story of MOBY DICK. (Now all of you Greenpeace/save the whale types don't worry since we're not going to be harpooning any whales or killing any dolphins so take a deep breath and chill out. We're just talking about a brief sojourn into Melville land) So what does JOHNNY BORING (TM) decide to do Of coarse, he is going to New Bedford to find the starting point of MOBY DICK Arriving in New Bedford, our hero loses himself in his imagination. He feels the cold, unforgiving ocean winds and sees himself before the mast alongside men named Captain Ezekiel Hardy, killed by a sperm whale on the coast of Japan in 1833. Suddenly, after hour of wandering the streets of New Bedford, our whaler in training realizes that he needs a place to stay. (Kind of like you which is why you're reading this ad. )Will he be able to find the actual Spouter-Inn Can he find the harpooner/Queequeg (Queequeg, for all you who haven't been willing to force yourself to read MOBY DICK, is the tattooed naked harpooner in the book.) Will he be able to retrace the steps of Ishmael. Entering the nearest Inn, our intellectual voyager approaches the innkeeper. "Avast" matey, where can a whaler find a bunk for the night Behind the desk sits the clerk. Momentarily stunned he regains his composure with a startled "huh. " " I'm setting sail tomorrow in search of MOBY DICK and I need a place to stay. " Oh I see is this some type of college initiation or something comes the response " Stand fast matey, I need a bunk to rest my bones. "Well, all I've got is a single bed with a shared bath." "That will do." "Top of the stairs last door on the left." Reaching his room, JOHNNY BORING (TM) (JB) for short, stretches out on his bed and begins to imagine days before the mast. Suddenly, the door opens and in walks a dark complexioned chap, naked with tattoos all over his body. In his hand is a six foot harpoon gleaming from its sharpened point. Panicking, JOHNNY BORING (TM) blurts out, "Queequeg " Startled, the man answers laconically, "yes, me Queequeg. " Not knowing if he is dreaming, or suffering one of his momentary flashbacks caused by attending too many Grateful Dead concerts, our hero of the homeless slaps himself in the face. Realizing that he is not dreaming, our whaler in training decides that a naked man with a harpoon is too much Herman Melville reality for him and bolts from the room. Running by the clerk, our sojourner of the seas flees his New Bedford residence in search of a more private home in Boston. Here is what he finds for himself, his shipmates and and for you. DIMENSIONS/ DESCRIPTION OF APARTMENT Here's the apartment you've been waiting for. You enter into the hallway (you can call it a foyer if you want to impress your friends) which measures 10.5 ft x 8.5 ft. To the right is a large closet and straight ahead is the kitchen which measures 13. 5 ft x 6 ft with new wood cabinets and electric range. (You say you want a gas range but who are you kidding since you know you never cook anyway-you can pop your meals into the microwave) To the right off of the hallway is the bathroom which is a nice older charming bathroom with a pedestal sink. (Or just an old bathroom if you don't like older charming bathrooms with pedestal sinks) To the left of the hallway is the living room which measures 10. 5 ft x 18. 5 ft with two windows at the end which face west so you can get a tan as you ponder life. The alcove is off of the living room and measures 8.5 ft x 10. 5 ft. The ceilings are 9.5 ft high.Hardwood floors throughout. Laundry in the basement.

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN: Sitting in the office of Senator, "Buy My Vote," Johnny Boring ( The alter ego of Apartmentman) quietly awaits his interview. It has been 24 months of sending out resumes, job interviews, and pouring non fat double lattes to survive. Can he just give the right answers to this questioner His interlocutor arrives with the perfunctory dark suit, a red tie and a suitably serious look on his face. The questioner begins: " So you have a degree from "Genius U" in political science but have been working for the last 24 months making coffees "Yes I try to make the best highly sugared, extremely calorie intense, designer coffee my multi national profit driven company can intelligently market to the unsuspecting masses" " stammers the visibly frightened Johnny Boring. Standing again behind the counter of his multi national caffeine peddling long term employer, Johnny again ponders his failed job search response as he contemplates his long term stock option growth potential making coffees.. www.apartmentmsn.net jvcastelli@earthlink.net Click here for Map #jvc-6245443

BROOKLINE - - APARTMENTMAN In the continuing saga of "APARTMENT MAN," (TM) our hero has just finished attempting to find work that would take full advantage of his native skills, as well as his slightly less than marketable college degree. Where to find the job that would allow him to use his unbridled imagination and creative abilities to the fullest Where to employ a mind that still believed that "The Hobbit " was an accurate account of human history. Studying the help wanted section of his local paper an opportunity appears. "Vice president in charge of creative price tagging/marketing needed at "Needless Markup," a local well known retail store Experience in inducing an irrational buying frenzy in homo sapiens a plus. " (You can insert whatever retail store name you like !) What is a vice president in charge of creative price tagging/marketing How will working as a price tagging clerk help our hero of the homeless flex his flagging, flaccid intellect Good questions !! To a lesser mind a price tagging clerk, even a vice president, is someone who merely spends days attaching price tags on items for sale in all local retail stores. However, to our undaunted, product of the American educational assembly line, the chance to take full advantage of the creative opportunities are clear. He will be employed marking up sales prices !! He can create whatever he likes. How far can he push the creative envelope Louis Vinyl purses on sale for $400.00, reduced from $3,000.00, a possibility. (Talk about marketing. How did anyone get anyone to pay these prices for an ugly vinyl brown bag ) Dresses on sale for $200.00 reduced from a $1,000,000. 00 . What was the product actually worth Who cared !! Did anyone ever ask or check if a sale item was ever really offered for sale at the original price Of course not ! Merely being on sale was enough. The possibilities were endless. He could imagine the lines outside the stores. He could imagine the legions of shoppers at "Needless Markup" shrieking as they scooped up the last of the hot pink spiked heels on sale for $375. reduced from $1,500.00. He would influence history. Just then, the phone rang and it is you, the reader of this ad calling to ask about the apartment. Here is what you will be told about the apartment you have been patiently waiting to hear about. DIMENSIONS/ DESCRIPTION OF APARTMENT: The kitchen measures 9.5 ft x 6 ft . Hardwood floors throughout. Laundry in the basement and steps from the T. Management on site. Call ASAP to see.
