Better Than Real Because It's Not.

(Jan 15) I feel like I am returning to the past, except it’s a good thing to feel the energy of a Internet bubble. Just like 1999. And just like 1999 there may be trouble just around the bend. It remains to be seen how much exposure I have to the bubble bursting. Last time I was pretty much unaffected. (I Wish I could say the same about the Great Recession.)

problem dog that he is
I worry I might not be able to take him with me

which perhaps is why it's a problem, quite a lot of time has in fact, passed
I remember this, like it was just a few years ago.

really, i don't
I don’t even remember this boy

this guy, i remember, very well
The past is past. But it makes me who I am today.

i will always miss him
Atlas now is the same age as Billy was in this photo from 1998.

(Jan 29) Living just around the corner from the old ‘hood, it seemed odd not to have returned, ubercamera in hand. I retraced some familiar steps, saw more things that are very different and haven’t changed.

arr gee bee
But first, for most of you, if you look really closely…
This is what pseudoreal really looks like

This view, hasn’t changed a bit
I walked here with Billy countless times

smokestacks make the lights go
The power plant hasn’t changed either

i skated down backwards
Before I moved into this neighborhood the first time, this was part of my rollerblading course

you can't go home again
Now it’s just part of the past

It seems that as of late 2008 Y2K has finally arrived, and it had nothing to do with poor computer programming practice.

mta fail
MTA FAIL. Not only does water flow in unimpeded from the street, the ceiling leaks 3 feet away. It’s been like this for years.

worthless workers. mta fail2.
MTA FAIL2. They were at the edge of the street when I arrived. Three hours later, this crew of at least 10 workers, and 2 MTA police had 30 feet of blacktop to show for themselves. This may be one reason why the MTA is more in the red than some countries spend in a year.

The gardens on High St. look more than a bit less impressive than last year.

torn up
This place was sold about six years ago, and has been continually screwed with ever since. Six years of construction.

This is what a private bailout loan looks like. It ain’t pretty, really.

right back atcha.
The Union St. sign weirdness continues.

annieone in there?
“Annie’s Garden”, one of the many (apparently) “Gardens of Union”.

A trip out for coffee.






More Azeleas.


 red maple

Red Maple.



I think this is a walnut tree.



The boy in the window.


 barber pole

Barber shop pole.
Unbroken, unlike all the ones I’ve seen in the city.


 purple pansies.

The gayest flowers of all.



This store scares me.
