Technical Difficulties - Oscars

We had a "technical difficulties" song at camp to distract the kids while we tried to figure out what was going wrong with the computers. I would sing that song to you now if I could.

For some reason I don't understand, I am suddenly having trouble getting the pictures from my camera to my computer. I have been taking pictures and when I have time to sit down and figure out what's going with my software. Hopefully tonight or tomorrow. I have the pictures... promise!

Also, the Oscars are tonight. Not that things really matter, but they're interesting. I entered my office Oscar pool and really could use that money. Fingers crossed, guys.

Pic of the Day

I finally made it to the film forum - only 6 short months after moving here. I got to see my first Godard film in a theatre. It was "Made in USA" - a movie somewhat based on the Richard Stark (Donald Westlake) novel The Jugger. It's not available in the US on DVD because the producers nor Godard ever actually paid for the rights to the story by Westlake.

Film Forum, Houston Street, West Village, Manhattan


Pic of the day - Yesterday's

This is the pic for 2-18-09. I didn't get home until very late, but I did take this picture last night on my way home. I was too tired to make this picture upload.

You may have to click on this pic and make it big to realize... there is a suit of armor guarding this store!

7th Ave, Park Slope Brooklyn.

(I didn't get the cross street because I was on the phone with Ian and not paying attention.)

Pic of the day

Roots Cafe
18th & 5th, Park Slope, Brooklyn
This is a painting by Jake Nelson. He painted it on stage during his friend's show, and it now hangs in Roots Cafe.
I promise to leave the neighborhood tomorrow so the picture will not be from 18th & 5th.

I live in New York City, the most photogenic and interesting of all American cities (yeah, that's right. Suck it, St. Paul!) I've decided to take a picture every day and post it on this blog here. It may be a sign, a cool building, etc. Who knows?

This is a mural on the side of the Eagle Provision grocery store. I wish that stupid pole wasn't in the way.
