(Photos by Bald Punk – Morningside Drive and Park, Manhattan) The other day I was walking Scrappy Doodles on Morningside Drive, daydreaming that I was a musical prodigy. I saw myself onstage at the Central Park bandshell. My bulky frame was hunched over a miniature piano. I played the “Linus and Lucy theme” from Charlie Brown. My thin fingers glided effortlessly […]

Rockaway Beach

(Photos by Bald Punk – Rockaway Beach, Queens) You probably don’t know it, but that fence dividing the beach in a few photos is known throughout NYC. Even the hole in the fence is legendary. As a wee lad I heard about the fence and recognized it the moment I stepped foot on Rockaway Beach many years later. […]

(Tuba Skinny and His Tiny Men busking on Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn) My buddy Alberto Modino just saw Tubby Skinny in León, Spain. He said they are touring the country on bikes. Right now they are my favorite band of all time. It just stinks that they are so darn elusive. No website, no iTunes, no Facebook page that […]

Peaceful NYC Waterfall Video

  I was walking from South Street by the Seaport over toward the J.P. Morgan Building when I passed the above waterfall. I quickly pulled out my Alfred Hitchcock “hat,” whipped out my camera, and went to work. I hope you like my film. The music is by the awesome Irish choir Anúna. The song is called The […]

I saw Michael Jackson’s ghost! I was the first person to see him since his death! I’m pretty sure of that fact. And no one else saw him that day but me. I wish it was up by the Apollo. That would be super cool, especially if he was singing. But it was inside Gray’s Papaya. […]

Danse Macabre – Camille Saint-Saëns

(Michael Wolgemut – The Dance Of Skeletons) I love all types of music, especially classical. Sometimes when I’m listening to a piece, I forget about everything except the music. And then I’m off and dreaming. The composition below is Camille Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre. To me it’s perfect. Almost as perfect as  Beethoven’s Ode to Joy. Btw, I have something special planned […]

  I like posting something everyday. Somedays I’m not sure what to say or what to put up. Nothing is really happening with me, my lady friend, and the pizza and Chinese delivery guys. It’s hump day in the middle of July. I wish I was going to the beach tomorrow instead of work. Well, […]

(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 […]
