almost home

mr. fancy

this guy has to be the luckiest bum in the city, perhaps the country. in the summer he lays about in a fold up chaise and in the winter, this giant puff. p.s. he lives two doors away from liv tyler and a few more from sjp.

white fur

opening at ८४१ broadway

ms. jenny was the gallery lady of the evening. and i have to say, i love the lady more than i was lovin' the work.

greenpoint backyard dreams and the interior

audrey got into the chorizo. the plants into the ashtray. us in the plants. them with the contacts. and the stove was left on. a very nice evening. [aside from the butthole exclaimations]

josh wiles feast wiles has a real knack for this. upstaging marlow's brick chicken, which xabi and i had two nights ago, this was way better.

amanda's house of fun and curiousities

new work old work.old stuff cool stuff.

kara walker opening at the whitney

a serendipitous evening of gabbing with linnea [gracias to the subway operator on the downtown F for closing the doors in my face].. was spent gorging on chicken skewers and cheese. there was people watching aplenty. we participated in games ranging from fashion do's and don't's to 'is that my friend'. while dodging the anti smoking security guard and that chick who asked us if she could talk to do you politely decline such a query. we didn't know but did our best to wrap it up as quickly as we could.

able to scoot with some difficulty

took the bus for the maybe the 3rd time ever. not actually that efficient. as scooters are hard to navigate on board.. i definitely could have walked faster.
but it was no doubt an interesting cultural experience. people who take the bus seem a bit off kilter..for example, the woman sitting ahead of me turned around to tell me (with hardcore conviction) how crazy and even evil the women in new york are. now, she was looking at the toothless crackhead lady seated at the front (talking to herself in slippers), which made some sense. though, her diatribe along with her cross eyed glare seemed to categorize herself as a like minded species. further confirming her evilness, she proceeded to complain about how all these foreigners move here and don't learn english! i tried to politely respond in a positive melting pot kind of way but she wasn't having it. she bid farewell, i gave likewise pleasantries as she got off at st. mark's.

central park journal writing view east

went for a jaunt into the park after therapy. did some writing and processing. and figured out how to do long exposures on my camera. [tech skills improving daily]

hawk sighting in tompkins square park

a (mars) hawk spotted on the west side of the park yesterday, allegedly waiting for the perfect pigeon. he caused quite a scene.
