Baldie On The Barbie

(Blazing Star Burial Ground, S.I.N.Y. – Photo by Joe) This is a dream. Until it’s not a dream. Who can tell… – The pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts) piloted our SUV through Staten Island to the Memorial Day BBQ. I held hands with lady friend(LF) in the back seat. She chatted ceaselessly with num and nuts, […]

Those Eyes

(Dog Scoping Shit Out, S.I.N.Y. – Photo by Joe/Gimped) It just doesn’t stop staring at me. And it’s looking at me like I’m a fire-breathing, three-headed Mega-Godzilla. But I deserve it. I really do deserve it… ~ I don’t deserve the batty gazes from the pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts). But it’s Memorial Day weekend and nothing’s […]

(Central Park and 5th Ave. – Photos by Joe) Barely fifteen minutes after I left the ghost of Albert Einstein, knowing not to say his name or ruminate over the encounter, I was fooled into giving his exact whereabouts. Not a second later, the demon who tricked me, raced up the 5th Avenue sidewalk next to Central Park […]

(Albert Einstein) The way Benny had explained it to me, ghosts, especially those of famous people are very rarely the person’s actual spirit. They are particles and light animated by the power of common dreams. ~ The ghost of Albert Einstein sat on a bench up the street with his back to Central Park’s wall. Hardly fifteen minutes had […]

(The Ego And The ID by Franz West – Photos by Joe) “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”         Albert Einstein  ~ The door to the paranormal is wedged open upon my foot. To move away would be to lose the foot . . . Days ago on the cobbled corner of South […]

(St. Andrew’s Cemetery in Richmondtown, Staten Island – Photo by Joe) Lately I’ve been thinking about making some changes in the direction of Bald Punk. The stories section will continue unabated. The Photos and Everything Else pages will change somewhat. I think I’m going to try and focus more on paranormal NYC. Today I registered the domain ParanormalNYC.com. It […]

(South Street – Photos by Joe) The five of us all gazed at a blue neon glow that was brightest by the Fish Market Restaurant on South Street. I shuffled my feet, blinked, squinted, and pretended to look real hard. Don’t know if the shuffling of the feet worked, but I did my best not to […]

Keeping Secrets

(South Street across from The Paris Cafe – Photos by Joe) “Where your treasure is, there will your heart also be.”                       Luke 12:34   – Believe me, I don’t give away all of NYC’s secrets. Especially those associated with that block of small brick buildings on South St. between Beekman St. and Peck Slip. At one end are vacant […]

Milk Toast

(Wavertree sailing ship/South Street Seaport, NYC – Photos by Joe) At South Street Seaport to meet my friends, I was aware a tall white guy had tailed me since I came out of the Fulton Street subway station that was a four block walk. Just to be certain, I moved away from the sparse, early evening crowd […]

(“Disappear” – Photos/Photo Art by Joe) I told Benny, “the cigar store Indian,” about the elusive demon that whispers to me and the threat it had made on my life. He asked if there were places I usually heard its voice. I named Smith Street in Brooklyn, where the threat was made, and in Manhattan, South Street by the Seaport and a section along Lexington Avenue where […]
