Music of the Night

  (U2 – “Hands That Built America” – Music Video by Bald Punk) From the moment we stepped outside our Upper Manhattan apartment building, I was in a bad way. The pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts) knew it. They kept shooting glances at me when my lady friend(LF) wasn’t looking. They tried to […]

Bigger than The Babe

(Babe Ruth at bat) We were parked on River Avenue in the shadow of the new Yankee Stadium. Scrappy D had his hind legs on my thigh, and his snout was against the window. I ran my fingers up and down his back. Sitting next to me, my lady friend(LF) hoped her sister wouldn’t be […]

Living on a Thin Line

(Babe Ruth in the film, Headin’ Home, 1920 )  I can understand if you don’t believe all the stuff that happens to me. All I can say is “good thing I don’t live in New Jersey,” then I probably wouldn’t believe it either. The only way I can explain it is to say, NYC is different. I […]

Only This And Nothing More (Bald Punk meets the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe)

(Edgar Allan Poe – 1809-1849) I was driving on the Grand Concourse when I saw Edgar Allan Poe’s ghostly apparition on the sidewalk. I pulled over and watched him disappear just as he came to a white-shingled cottage. The cottage seemed so out of time and place, I fully expected it also to vanish into thin air. . . I hardly had […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – Calvary Cemetery – Click twice to fully enlarge) In the post about our search for the ghost of a slave named Hardy, I had told you how we found him mowing a church lawn on a bright sunny day, and how he even came with us on a car ride. I want […]

(Photos by Bald Punk – I took them(see below) on Wall St when we went to see Carrie) My lady friend(LF) and I along with the pizza and Chinese delivery guys, wanted to find out more about Max Beckley. He’s a homeless man I met once that we’ve since learned may be  a reincarnated Revolutionary War soldier . . . […]

Angel of New York

I was all over the City this past Sunday.   Canal Street was bumper to bumper traffic. The sidewalks were packed. If you looked away for a half-sec, you risked being trampled underfoot. When I headed uptown, all the bars on West Broadway had their doors flung open and music filled the air. Thompson Street was a little shady […]

DATE WITH THE DEVIL

(Satan by Gustave Dore) I monumentally screwed up with the exorcism, and everyone hates me. If you want, you can hate me too. I have no idea how, but I’m going to change my life for good. Unfortunately, you come here so I can tell you how I’m kicking-itbig time in NYC, but I can’t […]

 (Painting by Francisco Goya of Saint Francis Borgia performing an exorcism.) Hi, This is Bald Punk. I’m back from my first exorcism. I’m numb all over and really can’t talk about it. You remember how when Moses went up the mountain to get the ten commandments, he came down with white hair and that Light […]
