I woke up Saturday morning like most people–in a great mood. It was the weekend, college football was on, and the night before I had setup a time and location to meet Tarron and Jordan in the subway to stream one of their performances live. If you missed it, Tarron and Jordan are two extremely talented kids who sing and play the bucket drums on the subway for money. A couple days earlier I had posted one of their videos on SubwayCreatures and it went viral. I was not only impressed with their performance but I wanted to help them out by giving them more exposure and hopefully finding them a connection in the music industry. I even setup a GoFundMe account that I was going to surprise them with so anyone watching on the live-stream could donate towards their performance. After an extensive online search and some help from random people, I was able to track down their mother on Facebook. I confirmed it was definitely her and she was very receptive to the idea of Tarron and Jordan live-streaming their performance so we made arrangements to meet the following day at Grand Central Station. The next afternoon I arrived a little early to the entrance of the Shuttle on the Grand Central side when I realized I had a huge problem. I wasn’t going to be able to stream anything live because my phone wasn’t getting service. I noticed there was a “Free TransitWiFi” sign on a subway pole and figured it was my only option to make this happen. I proceeded to link my phone to the public, non-secure WiFi connection…

 

[Tarron and Jordan’s viral subway performance]

 

After 15 minutes of waiting around I texted Tarron and Jordan’s mom and she told me they were already there. I searched everywhere but couldn’t find them and realized they must have been performing somewhere else and didn’t have their phones out. It was like two ships passing in the night. I gave it another 30 minutes and called it quits. No live-stream performance. No GoFundMe surprise. The worst part? Once I finally got cell phone service back the emails were already piling up with fraud notifications. I remember showing my friend who I was with and saying, “this is not good at all!” My gmail accounts already had their passwords hacked and changed as well as my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I knew I was fucked.  I immediately had to troubleshoot every account and answer all the correct security questions to gain access and create new passwords. That’s when I tried to login into the SubwayCreatures Instagram account and received the notification ‘the username SubwayCreatures does not exist’. I tried a few more times but kept getting the same result. I frantically called my girlfriend and asked her to go on Instagram and check SubwayCreatures and she confirmed the worst. It had been wiped.

I can’t really explain the feeling that hit me in that moment. Something less than finding out your dog died but something gut wrenching enough to make you realize this could be a huge game changer in your life. I don’t want to sound dramatic but SubwayCreatures is something I created and have been building all by myself for 7 years. It’s my baby. It’s something I never thought would get as big as it did and I’m so proud of it…but now I might have to start all over again. It’s something thousands of people enjoy looking at every day saying to themselves ‘that’s SO me’ or ‘I can totally relate to the person in that situation’. It’s as I like to call it, people watching from the safety of your phone. And whether you agree or disagree with the concept of the page, there’s this bad car accident phenomenon that makes you not want to look away. The point of this post is not for anyone to feel bad for me and I grew up with the philosophy that self-pity will never help anyone achieve anything. This is, after all, just an Instagram page and I will start over and build it up again if I have to. I simply want people to hear this story so they don’t make the same mistake I did. Make sure you only use a secure WiFi and protect yourself on all your devices. A lot of people always say ‘that will never happen to me’ and I can honestly say I was one of them. This situation could have been a LOT worse but it was still a lesson learned the hard way so please learn from my mistake.

What’s next? I’ve sent multiple messages and emails to Instagram and Facebook but as of this post have not heard back. I’ve also reached out to a couple other popular Instagram accounts I’ve heard this has happened to just to see what their approach to the issue was. If you have any ideas or connections I would love any help I can get. Please send me and email at SubwayCreatures@gmail.com. It’s a helpless feeling but I’m not going to stop trying until Instagram or Facebook straight up tell me it’s gone and there’s nothing they can do. When that happens, I’ll start the account all over again. Either way, SubwayCreatures will be back.

This video of a man and woman fighting on a Toronto subway platform got reported and removed from Instagram this afternoon. Not sure what the reasoning was but that’s why I have a website. It will now live in infamy here!

So The Whole Cricket Lady Story Was A ‘Prank’

NYPost: The woman who caused a massive panic on a crowded subway train by releasing a swarm of crickets admitted to The Post on Friday that she orchestrated the disgusting stunt in an attempt to go viral on social media. 

“I have been doing these pranks for four years now,” self-promoting actress Zaida Pugh said. “This was to show what homeless people go through and how people treat them.”

Pugh, known for a series of bizarre online pranks, said she brought 300 crickets and 300 worms onto the D train Wednesday and had a friend flip the insects into the air — freaking out those straphangers who hadn’t been in cahoots with her.

“Basically the people that is attacking me is a part of the stunt,” she said, adding her friends “also do their own comedy skits online as well.”

But things got even worse when an innocent passenger pulled the emergency brake as the D train was crossing the Manhattan Bridge. Riders were stuck in the cricket-filled car — with no air conditioning — for 30 minutes.

“The emergency brake was pulled,” Pugh said. “We were not expecting that to happen at all.”

Another unplanned aspect was Pugh urinating on the floor of the subway car.

“I did [urinate] but didn’t purposely mean to,” Pugh said. “It was very hot and I was holding my bladder. When I realized we weren’t going anywhere, I said, ‘I’m gonna just let it out.’ ”

She was taken to Methodist Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

She stayed in character as a homeless person trying to sell crickets, thinking that would help her avoid arrest.

But a police source told The Post that Pugh could be charged in connection with the chaos.

Here is other videos of her “work”

 

Crazy Woman Throws Crickets And Worms At Passengers On Subway

NOTE: I completely understand the negative press this video is receiving, however, this video has been shown on every news channel, blog, and website in the last 24 hours. I understand the woman is mentally ill and/or disturbed but does that mean we just ignore everything that happened? This was not posted to be funny, as not one funny–or snarky–comment was made about it from CSC. This is news because of how many people it affected on their commute and just so happened to be in the subway. You know the kind of content you’re going to come across on this site/page so if you don’t like it, don’t follow it. Have a great fuckin’ Friday!

NYPost: A crazed woman trying to sell crickets and worms on a D train suddenly threw them all over the crowded car, sending it into chaos during the evening commute.

The woman walked into the train car at about 6 p.m. Wednesday and made a pitch to passengers to try to get them to buy the chirping insects and wrigglers.

“It was pandemonium,” said Chris Calabrese, 29, who was on the train with his girlfriend. “It was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen on a train.”

Someone then pulled the emergency brake and the train skidded to a stop on the Manhattan Bridge.

The air conditioning shut off and the screaming passengers were all stuck inside the sweltering car with the woman, who then treated them to antics for half an hour as the crickets jumped on passengers. The worms just wriggled on the floor.

“She was banging on the doors and trying to climb out the windows. Everyone had crickets on their arms. My girlfriend was crying,” said Calabrese. “Then some men were trying to hold her down and she started trying to throw up on them.”

The woman then urinated on the floor and everyone again ran to the other side of the car while still trying to avoid the piles of bugs.

The train started to move again after half an hour and pulled into the DeKalb Avenue station, where dozens of cops were waiting on the platform, said Calabrese.

The MTA confirmed that emergency services removed the woman from the train, but they declined to comment on the crickets and worms.

WPIX: The man at the center of a now-viral video in which he was scolded by a grandmother who says she caught him masturbating aboard a No. 2 train has been arrested, police sources said Wednesday. Law enforcement sources identified the man as Kevin Cuffe, 23, of the Bronx.

Cuffe faces a charge of public lewdness in the Aug. 15 incident. That day, fellow subway rider Deanna Carter shamed him off a crowded northbound No. 2 train.

Carter said she witnessed Cuffe gazing at female riders on the train while holding a bag over his lap and keeping one hand in his pants with a visible erection.

“He’s actually touching himself and I’m saying is he really doing this right now?” she recalled to PIX11 News. “There’s a train full of people and there’s children on the train.”

Carter posted video of the encounter on Facebook and it quickly amassed millions of views. As of midday Wednesday, that footage had been watched more than 3 million times.

According to police, Cuffe also was charged in an alleged incident that happened on Dec. 16, 2015, in which he’s accused of engaging in the same act. In that case, PIX11 viewer Nicole De’Chabert captured Cuffe on cellphone video allegedly fondling himself aboard a Manhattan-bound No. 2 train. De’Chabert never reported the incident to police but instead posted the video on Facebook to warn her female friends. But after watching PIX11’s report in which Carter recounted her subway encounter, De’Chabert recognized the subject of the latest video.

“When I looked very closely I said, that’s the same guy I’ve seen many months ago over the holiday season,” she told PIX11 News in an exclusive interview Aug. 17. NYPD investigated both incidents, which led to Cuffe’s arrest a day later. The suspect, who has a criminal record, is being charged with two counts of public lewdness. He’s scheduled to appear in court next month.

Oh and if you missed the original video, here it is:

 

Well, I’m pretty sure that’s not how this guy expected this to play out. Absolutely stuffed in a locker by this woman and probably rightfully so. To be honest I don’t know what happened before the video but this looks like a face of guilt if I’ve ever seen one.

It should go without saying but keep your hand off your dick in public and at this point, just be glad you still have one.

HuffPost: A retired teacher in Guangzhou, China allegedly brutally attacked a younger man in a squabble over a subway seat on Monday, repeatedly biting him until both men were covered in blood. The incident was caught on tape by a female passenger, who uploaded the clip to Chinese website Sina Weibo, China Daily reports. The older man, a 67-year-old who has been identified only as “Chen,” boarded the subway at around 8:30 a.m., according to Sina.com. The younger man, a 28-year-old identified as “Wu,” reportedly shoved Chen out of the way as he scrambled to get a seat. Chen then began chastising Wu for not respecting his elders, a witness told New Express Daily, according to China Daily’s translation. The woman says the older man then punched Wu, resulting in a physical fight that ended with the biting scene in the video.

The witness noted that bystanders initially did try to break up the fight, but it quickly became so violent that they were frightened away. Both Chen and Wu suffered only minor injuries, according to Sina.com’snslation of the Southern Metropolis Daily.Neither man is facing charges, and both reportedly apologize for their actions. Even so, residents of Guangzhou may want to consider seeing if they can get in on the zombie apocalypse training offered by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just to be safe.

If this is how you go about getting to and from McDonald’s everyday then you’d think they’d have a better system down. Kids taking their time hopping in the trunk and all the other family members on the lookout like a major drug deal is going down in broad daylight. Suspicious as hell looking. It’s actually sad because one minor accident and these kids are screwed. Here’s a solution–throw big mama in the trunk and you’ll be able to fit everyone in the car. Problem solved.
