The eagle hasn’t so much landed, as escaped

pilgrim state
This was once the country’s largest hospital (complex)

even if somewhere is nowhere
We’re all going somewhere. All of us.

it reveals little
This is a lot of power

out of the darkness
Thanksgiving moon

Oh, how I need a better lens for this task.

(Nov 7) Some of the earliest posts here got accidentally lost, but at this point, p s e u d o r e a l crossed the decade line some time ago. The template used here and some points of site style bear the distinct marks of 2003. Late 2003 had the feeling of impending change. Late 2013 feels much the same to me. Not quite as much, but it’s there. I don’t think this site is going to change much. It’s part chronicle, part hobby, part excuse, and finally, though there’s probably not much here that qualifies as art, as a whole, the site is at some level, a long-running art project.

Life is full of these

(Oct 20) If you knew me, you’d think I’d have been here already, or that I’d have gone with Viza. You’d be wrong on both counts. On this particular Sunday afternoon though, I went to the NYC Transit Museum with Preed.

and pressurization
It starts with the story of digging

the bewheeled barrow
Preed tried his hand at manual labor

oh there he is!
Today’s Game: “Where’s Tesla?”

Brooklyn Trucking Express
Whatever it is, do it.

it's just like in the movies!
I’ve never actually seen one of these for reals before

stupidly ironic
Stupid people? Ironic? Perhaps just well-trained.

which apparently used the same business model as prostitutes

already overdue
More irony. But so very MTA.

can you spell 'manipulation', boys and girls?
Wrigley’s spells an ad that wouldn’t pass standards and practices today

you probably got stuck *to* them
It’s amazing how long they stuck with wicker seats

Another era, for sure

Paul seemed deeply interested in these
