rocks off

Awesome Stones video on Flaming Pablum, showing the boys traipsing around the old Bowery. Rivington is in there in the form of the One Mile House (at 213 Bowery, across the street from the old Boston Post Road mile marker.)

Shot by Robert Frank, so it's nice and gritty.

packing the spice rack

Aspects of this move are proving humbling.

I suppose many of these things could have been deacquisitioned long ago.

Hey, this one isn't so bad. In fact, its purchase date hasn't even happened yet.

Oh, wait.

Sigh.

Also, love the inconsistency of Streetview's face-blur technology.

google streetview is the matrix

I am crazy busy right now, so naturally I have developed an addictive means of procrastination. Google Streetview. It's not like I didn't know this was here -- I've used it to track down specific addresses. But I've never treated it as a flâneur, heading out to random spots around the globe and wandering, drawn endlessly on by what's ahead at the next corner. Streetview is like that fantasy of the world stopping, and you being the only sentient being, free to poke around everywhere and everything without interference. When deadlines have passed, Streetview, I will be back for you.

(And as everything in life, any idea you have has probably already been done one better.)
