“Just wondering if anyone knows where I can get some canvas art of DC that’s not horribly expensive. I’m moving to Paris in September for work and want to take some art that will remind me of home. I was at the Columbia Heights farmers market last weekend and there was a guy selling paintings of the Capitol and various other DC landscapes, but I didn’t see his name and he’s not there this weekend. Does anyone have any idea who he is?”

tile

“I saw the tile in the photo a few years ago at the George Eastman House/Museum. I’m wondering if anyone has ideas about finding something similar. I’ve done some exhaustive searches to no avail. I’d also like something similar if people have ideas. The thing I like are the symmetrical pattern, the very small grout lines, and the fact that it’s white with dark grout.
Thank you!”

lease questions

Lease questions – are these enforceable?

“I was kinda desperate when moving last year and signed a lease without negotiating. The landlord now wants me to renew for another year. I know I can just let the lease expire and go month-to-month, but there are some things in the old lease that I’d like some advice on. If these are enforceable, I want to discuss changing them in the next lease. The bits I’m curious about are:

* It is mutually agreed by and between the Lessor and Lessee that the respective parties hereto shall and they hereby do waive trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counter-claim brought by either of the parties hereto against the other on any matters whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with this lease; the Lessee’s use or occupancy of said premises, or any claim or injury or damage arising out of the occupancy of the premises herein.

* That the Lessee, at his own cost and expense, will make and pay for all repairs and replacements to the demised premises, resulting from his negligence. Lessee agrees to pay first $60.00 of all other repairs. (more…)

“Question for you election/legal experts out there: If I’m registered with a political party in DC, and go to vote in the June primary, but want to vote for a candidate for a local office (council member) who’s not on my ballot (due to belonging to another political party), does my write-in of that candidate still count? Or is that vote only counted on the ballots for that specific candidate’s party?”

“Long time lurker, first time poster. My landlord is in the process of selling my building and I am looking to see if anyone is interested in my TOPA rights. It is a three unit apartment building in a very great location on Capitol Hill near Results Gym. I am looking for someone who wants the current tenants to stay.

Please leave your email in the comments if you are interested to get more information.”

“I have a manhole in my front yard, and I am looking to plant a tree, but I have no idea how big the room under the manhole is or whether there are other pipes, etc. under my front yard. How would I go about finding out that information? Any help would be appreciated.”

“Walking through this neighborhood lately is a practice in dodging running rats. It’s like the Tori Amos video…

There are rats everywhere in neighborhoods by Georgia Avenue and New Hampshire and they’re frickin huge, larger than they’ve ever been since I’ve lived there in 8 years!

I suspect a lot of it has to do with us having only 2 trash pickup days per week and limited trash bins on public streets, especially by bus stops. It’s reached an epidemic level now, and they’re not afraid of humans at all. Dogs

I wonder if they’re mostly displaced residents from SoutWest with all the waterfront construction, but the city needs to do something fast about this, it’s embarrassing to invite friends over because they’re literally running everywhere even in the daytime. They’ve also been observed running into holes at the warehouse building next to sweet mango cafe by me on my way home from work, I can’t imagine what’s going on there, but it certainly doesn’t make me hungry.”

“At my apartment you need a 202 phone number for the callbox to work. I’m currently paying too much to RCN every month for this service, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any cheaper options like magicjack, a 202 burner phone or number forwarding, anything like that? I’m hoping to save money by going a different route, so any ideas are appreciated.”
