perfectly normal
He’s pushing a grill down the street at 10PM

sad, if not so unusual
My detective skills inform me that it flew into the supermarket window

the pills of ruin
A sign of our times

(Sep 20) A return to the San Gennaro festival. I haven’t been since I left Brooklyn. It has gotten smaller and has become overrun by iPhone accessories.

i look like my brother here

a donut was reported missing

(Nov 18) I need to figure out a better way to process my phone photos. Instant uploads to “the cloud” turn out not to be terribly useful to me.

it's a very short list of things i'm going to miss about here
Ok. I’m going to miss grilling over an open fire.

nearly invisible me
I like this effect

in the eerie glow
It takes decent night photos for a phone

I sent this to Viza to announce my arrival on Roosevelt Island

it was not however, a sign of good fortune
If you look closely, there’s a rainbow

Jesse Pinkman wuz here

A travesty committed against pizza

I had lunch with Lindsay and Leah

he's a good little boy
I’m really going to miss him.
