Cranes keep toppling in Manhattan.

Perhaps the spirit's flagging attempt at indicating displeasure at the continual vertical development....

There was just a big spectacle made of the replacement of the person in charge of construction safety after the previous collapse.

only a concept as of yet.

Just hurry up and do it before Apple gets their hands on it,
makes it all black with silver trim,

and claims to have started a revolution.

Wait...dammit, was that an unintentional hand pun?
Is a pun that's unintentional still a pun?


I love when people get stuff absolutely right.

Commenters make commenting suck.
warning: language, content

(if you don't get the above, check out the commenters at or

commenters in news stories also are annoying, but nobody does annoying like college kids.

they go to school for it)

Oh, yeah, the milk thing.

Well, internet sources aren't generally regarded as good sources,

but they can usually lead you to where their info comes from, if they've got something useful to say.

If you happen to be of the group who are lucky enough to keep producing lactase after childhood, congrats.

Don't know how that's going to help with the hormones, though.

(and no, the hormones in the meat supply don't help, either)

I talk for a living (well, usually), and I despise have my voice break with mucus stickin' up my larynx...

So, I'll continue to minimize my intake of the stuff. I'm sure soy/rice/almond milk ain't perfect, but I'll take it.

(here's some TV appearances of cuzzin above, fwiw)

Raising Victor Vargas

I could complain about some of the content, but it's nothing unrealistic.

Me encanta la abuela

(update: had a dream influenced by the misses innocence,,,first seems a long time ago --- such is life past young youth)

Man @ 125th/Lenox

wearing an Obama pin on his lapel & purchasing Apple Booty 5 (bootleg, no less).

While looking at a

page on the dreaded myspace,
that has, as one of it's profile songs
"4th Theme - Electric Company"

Gizmo matter-of-factly

got up and walked out of the room.

He funny.


Have cable? This is what your kids are watching in the morning.

(may seem to start slow, but your patience will be rewarded)

As usual, I'm confused.

Insanely funny,
insanely depressing that this much sexual innuendo makes it to children's tv....

"Hey, what are those?"


Nothing this relevant since dancing banana.

In case you haven't gotten a chance

to catch the NKOTB tour billboard over ESPNZone on B'Way,

I'll sum it up for you:

stuck somewhere between bwahah and ew.


Educational Focus

On most colleges/university campuses, facilities are built around the administrative buildings,

often the "main" building is where the prez's office is.

Take a look at this interactive campus map.

Can you find the admin bldgs?

Notice the what the centermost bldg is?

One of these kids

is doing her own thing,

and she's doing it with no shame.

See if you can find waldo.

(hint: high heels suck)

As I should be spending

less money given the unexpected financial burden due to the actions on my personal transportation by the city and it's thieves, it is quite ironic that it has caused me to be slightly more given to ordering in...

spending more money.

I wonder how differently all this would have gone the speech/comm disorders route.


Statemata Obviosa

The greatest downfall of the intelligencia is,


their intellegence.

S's & A's

Season 1, Ep. 3




Slings & Arrows

Just came across this show on the Sundance Channel (I finally added the alternative movie channels to my favorites; I still refuse to add the "premium" movie channels - too much bollocks).

A series about a modern theater company - it's remarkably apt.

Now we need to something that focuses on the hole-in-the-wall, exist only when one can scrounge $20 to produce a reading theater companies that make up the vast majority those in existence.

At least that's the case in this particular purview.

(edit: Nevermind, they've got it covered)

(actually, they didn't dwell, so the subject is still to be considered; i'll update as i make my way through)

First-Person Perspective

Since a child, I've wanted this.

Should the cost become reasonable, it will probably make it's way into my menagerie.

Once they make one small enough to fit in a slot car....mmmm - possibilities...



Though we've had our disagreements,

there's only one true original.

Gizmo poseurs need not apply.

Tow Truck

$!#%ery. So, I'm not the only one to deal with that this week. Well, take that and multiply it by about 2.5 to get to how bad they $!@#ed me.

Parking tickets are generally more than traffic tickets. They're cities' %@$5ed up way of raising revenue.

No, that's not right - it's $#%%^ing capitalistic venture. Plain and simple. If you really want me to serve penance for breaking a law, have me serve the city, Parking tickets, like speeding tickets, are about paying mayors and e'body below them. Make no mistake.

I guess I'll actually try to get a police report for the vandalism performed on my *ish* tomorrow.

Le Tour

(warning, most of these pictures suck full size. I'm lazy)

Waiting for the boat

This is the only time the plebs gets to ride on this part of the ferry. It's where cars would make the trip if this were another city - it's generally empty, though.

Lined up on Church St., waiting for the start

Nitwit in what is supposed to be an afro wig

Held up around 56th & 6th; we were staggered into groups going into Central Park

Bottleneck going onto the Queensboro bridge

Views on the bridge

Riding on the freakin' BQE!

No hands: bicycle cruise control

and another bottleneck, this time exiting from the BQE (yes, we were moving about as fast as the traffic in the other side)

What I was compelled to use the back of my tour bib for...

How to not Be Objective

I guess I really am old.

'Cuz they must've stopped teaching objectivity in journalism school, like 100 years ago.

Or maybe I just made up that part in my COMM classes.

(warning, the above is Wright/Obama related)

I find the interviewee's position sort of canned,
but I think still fits under "the color of legitimacy".

EDIT - Wait, I'm sorry, this dude is apparently from the O'Reilly show. Journalism doesn't apply here. My bad.

[إين دو تيم]

So, on my way to an audition seminar that I had to force myself to go to and decided that I was just going to spectate at,

while looking through my messages on my phone to double-check the address,

thinking that I'd locked the phone on said message but not, thus having to go all the back through all the messages,

I found the following that was sent to me on the same day (two weeks ago) that I'd not read:


Just wanted to say it was great meeting and working with you on the shoot for (cable network that shall remain nameless). You brought really great energy to the set, interacted extremely well with all the {other, pre-adolecent talent} (which ain't always easy…particularly as the meltdowns begin), and you were professional through and through...

We have... more videos on deck with {production co. which shall remain nameless} and it would be great if we could work with you again. We'll see how this all shakes out..

...Please keep us posted on any upcoming shows you may have...

Best and have a great weekend..

Normally: two weeks late. Today: right on time.

(preach among yourself(ves))

Catalytic converter

has been cut from beneath my truck.

i hate fucking new york city.

Chrysler is generally

avoidable in my estimation.

But this special version of the eventually-coming Challenger does have it's share of 'zazz.
The wheels really do it here, I think.

Still a monument of waste, however.

Update! 5-4-08
The above was a vehicle competing in the One Lap of America cross-country rally (that which the film Cannonball Run is based on).

Well, there was an incident.

Reportedly, they will be continuing in an orange version of the same vehicle that will basically looks like a modernized Gen. Lee w/o the potentially offensive markings.

Empathic Guitar (Chilluminati)

Damn. Ooh.


You better cop

Oh, you know SomaFM's got a new stream, right?


May has started

fairly shittily and, to be honest, I haven't been riding since last Friday night.

don't really feel like it now. My theory is this somehow all connects to breaking my rule about hanging out with inebriated people in general and going to a function I said I wasn't because it was too late AND I planned on going riding the next day.

yet more of me not doing what I blow ever so hard that I will.

Take out the garbage in O 8.

Be aware that, not only will the bastards lurk around lots they have deals with to tow

(therefore, they don't have to actually be called to perform the tow),

municipalities will actually allow them to sit and run plates on ANY car to see if there is an outstanding ticket.

Vile, garbage tactics for a vile, garbage industry.
