After reading it, I decided to try and sell one of my unpublished books. I’m thinking about this one: THE VIRGIN KING. Click on the link to it and you […]

Lower Manhattan & Statue of Liberty from Staten Island Ferry

(Photos by Joe) I’m surprised that I don’t already have a set of photos like these from the Staten Island Ferry. Though oddly, knowing I’m always in need of photos for this site, I either forget or am too lazy to take pics sometimes. Like the other day–I was sitting on the John F. Kennedy boat, admiring […]

(James Webb Space Telescope in Battery Park – Photos by Joe) NASA unveiled the James Webb Space Telescope in Battery Park. The five billion dollar telescope is set to replace the Hubble in 2014.

Music: Tuba Skinny’s Website

(Snapshot of Tuba Skinny’s website) So, the band Tuba Skinny finally has a website. Over a year ago I put up my first TS post, which mentioned their need to be online. On their new site I noticed two of my pics of the band from Washington Square Park. See them bottom links for the photos. Tuba Skinny plays traditional dixieland […]

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – “Home”

(“Home” live on The Late Show with David Letterman ) It’s funny that it took a while for “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros to grow on me. I can’t believe that the first time I heard it I didn’t think that it was absolutely brilliant! Right now it’s my favorite song of all time. (Edward Sharpe […]

To Disappear Completely

To Disappear Completely

(Barrow Street, Manhattan – Photos by Joe) A stranger named Ehrie with an East European accent paid me a surprise visit on Barrow St. in the West Village. My friend Benny, “the cigar store Indian” had sent him to teach me how to “disappear.” Ehrie said it would enable me to avoid the attention of ghosts, demons, and the various paranormal phenomena in NYC. Along the narrow block Ehrie wouldn’t […]
