How We Must Have Looked

How We Must Have Looked

(Photos by Joe) How we must have looked as we traipsed uptown, the four of us and an invisible boy from a dream . . . We stepped out from the shadow of the row homes on East 6th Street and into the late afternoon sun on 2nd Ave. The boy, whose name was James, became diaphanous in the brighter […]

What You See

(“Home” – Photo art by Joe) “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” – Michelangelo on creating the David. Weeks ago I told Benny, “the cigar store Indian,” about a haunted house in the East 50’s that mysteriously disappeared. My lady friend(LF) and the pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts), were […]

7th Avenue South in West Village

(Photos by Joe) I wanted to get something up so here ya’ go. Of note, when I was a freshman in high school many moons ago, me and two of my friends cut school in Staten Island and went into the Village. It was the first time we ever did somthing like that–go into the big, […]

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 […]

Avenue A in the East Village

(Photos by Bald Punk) I couldn’t post yesterday because we had a power outage. I was in Staten Island and the whole freaking place was pitch black. The place looked the best I’ve ever seen it. Tomorrow I will put up the next story post titled “In My Head.” It will pick up where White Fire left off. […]

Most Holy Redeemer Church in the East Village

(Photos by Bald Punk) I’ve made so many excuses about my photos in the past and on these, I’m going with: “I was cold, hungry, and it was a Sunday.” The one above came out nice. In the future I promise better work. Though I want you to know I did sit down on the […]

Around Cooper Square

(Photos by Bald Punk) I took these pics around Cooper Square after we parked our car on 3rd Ave and Great Jones St. It’s one of the handful of places in NYC that you can find a parking space-sometimes. Most of photos are labeled. Hold the mouse over them for a description. If I didn’t know […]

(Photo by Bald Punk) I discovered Tuba Skinny and His Tiny Men over a month ago in Washington Square Park. They were awesome. I’m their biggest fan. They were selling cds, but I was broke. If anyone knows where I can buy a cd or where they are playing, lemmie know?   They should have a website, because […]

(Picture by Shanna Ravindra) I’m going to keep my posts short from now on, as that’s what you’re supposed to do. Plus the UK hates me, and I don’t want to lose the people that check out my site from Moldava. I get tons of hits from there. It whacks me out. Here’s what happened Friday night. […]

  (Video by Bald Punk – Music by U2) I pieced together some footage from our night out Friday and set it to Hands That Built America by U2. It came out pretty good. What do you think? Tomorrow I plan to post some commentary on the evening. — Here are all the posts in this series: Episode Ten – […]
