Streetalk: Where is the worst mall to do your holiday shopping?

Torthel: Greenbriar Mall. It’s the most ghettoist mall on Earth. People get shot all the time. I went to the movie theater and right before the movie started, some kids opened the emergency exit door and, like, 10 kids swarmed in. I never see security. Kids just come running down the courtyard and start fighting. You can’t really shop because there’s too much going on with people. They don’t go there to shop. They go there to socialize and fight and steal.

Lauren & Meredith: Atlantic Station. The crowd was a little funny. They’re very judgmental. We’re a couple and if we show any signs of affection in public there, it was not good. We were looked down upon. Pretty conservative, in what I thought would be a more liberal area. People stare at you. It starts at the face. It goes down to the hands. They keep on turning like, ‘Oh, they’re not just sisters.’ And it didn’t feel very Christmasy. There was a Christmas tree, and that was it.

Tony: Lenox Square. It’s the cheese mall factor. It’s like the women all look the same. You can be standing next to somebody and they’re standing next to the mannequin and you look at the mannequin and think it’s them. It just looks like a bunch of mannequins roaming around a cheese mall. Everybody walks and looks like they’re a superstar. The dude working at the gas station there looks like he’s a big pimpin’ dude. To be different, you’ve got to be like a mutant.
