(Feb 7) Visited my mother for her birthday, since I was sick my whole time there for Thanksgiving.

my bed is the place to be
They are with me now more than ever


Six and a half hours of train travel is about to begin

probably not an option, regardless
I wonder how long it would take to fly upstate

penn station
From the LIRR to Amtrak

sigh
Four and a half hours in this seat.

(Apr 27) It is now undeniably spring. And it becomes time to ponder the reasons why I am still here.

too familiar
Familiar turf.

i'd never really noticed this before
Though I still have not seen it all

hundreds of thousands? millions?
I wonder how many times people have walked past this sign.

unless the building goes away *cough*
This will now always look the same, every time.

anything for a buck, yo
Disney, stayin classy.

i don't care if worsener is not a word
Beer. The cause of, and worsener of problems.

(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
Trolleys!

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

fire! fire!
Another era, for sure

toll-takers
Paul seemed deeply interested in these

(Feb 28) A whole lot of nothing. Been sick. Mission now… make things happen in March.

in and out
Rolling along, same ol’ same old.

the infamous l.i.e.
Passing under the action. Or the lack thereof.

(Jul 26) I’ve been coming to this neighborhood for 13 years. At some point a patch of land indistinguishable from an abandoned dump turned into a park. It seemed to spring into being suddenly, though it must have been going on behind the fence for quite a while.

proud to be part of the problem
But first… The Asshole of the Day

disrespect
The Diallo Mural has been brutally vandalized, undoubtedly by the landlord
More shhamefully, the city just re-armed one of the perpetrators.

bronx river
There it is

or, we painted some of the junk because it's cheaper than removing it
Concrete Plant Park

very trainy
Surrounded by multiple railroads on two sides

and the water, pretty disgusting
It’s pretty

they're probably mutants
At least the water doesn’t seem to be killing the birds

but it's a bunch of crap they couldn't be bothered to remove, nevertheless
It has artistic value

industrial art
But it detracts from the park overall, which needs every inch of usable space it can get.

i hope there's a cure
Catching something

what lives in it is too tough to die
The river of scary water

bet the city spends a fortune 'maintaining' it
Looking back at the wasted space

sadly the united states has no high speed trains
“High” speed trains.

elevated ones especially
There’s plenty of trains here though.

and by greenway we don't mean unidentified mold
It’s part of the “Bronx River Greenway”

the signs
And then it was done

back to penn station
So I left
