33 Phillips Street, AmherstUPDATE: October 3
So poor Paul Markham must be feeling the heat, as he took his silly ode to UMass party culture, "Welcome to the Zoo" down after garnering 90,000 hits on YouTube. Maybe his roomies were unhappy with him shouting out this address.
UPDATE 5:15 PM original day of publication
This post just became my #1 of all time for single day reads.
On Monday morning at 6:45 AM, APD did a follow up visit to 33 Phillips Street, owned by Knight Properties LLC, to hand deliver a nuisance house ticket for rowdy behavior that occurred late Saturday early Sunday morning.
Apparently it's one of those upstairs/downstairs problems where one floor does not wish to party as hardy as the other, but since the living arrangements are so, umm, close quarters that can make things a tad difficult. Especially at 1:45 AM.
The previous weekend APD responded to the same address, called by a first floor neighbor concerned about hoards of kids -- like something out of the zombie apocalypse -- trying to get to the upstairs apartment, even if by climbing over railings and trying to break in via windows.
Some of you younger hipsters may recognize the address, 33 Phillips Street (yes, one of my Party House of the Weekend frequent mentions). Besides being the half-way party house in a row of party houses, 33 Phillips is also home to infamous white rapper Paul Markham.
So proud of the address that he immortalize it in his forgettable video "Welcome to the Zoo (UMass Amherst)" last year with a shout out (unfortunately you have to watch most of the video to hear it).
Well if these $300 tickets keep accumulating, maybe Mr. Markham will drop his floundering rap career and start singing the blues.
