So I forgot my own blogoversary. That's what happens, the older you get. This blog was born on July 15, 2007. It all began with Howard Johnson's. I really didn't think it would last this long. Four years. That's like all of high school.
For the occasion, and for no other good reason, here's a shot of a guy in an expensive suit and haircut, drinking Red Bull and smoking an illegal cigarette in the park, while wearing suede--what do you call those shoes with all the toes articulated?--these shoes. They are apparently made from kangaroos. He was also shouting into his iPhone. Enjoy.
Thanks everyone for reading and for sticking around, for all your comments, emails, and tips. You keep me engaged with this thing. And thanks, too, for whatever work you do to keep the city from becoming a total spiritual wasteland--for your writing, art, and music, for your activism, your involvement, and your steadfast love for what still is, despite mounting evidence to the contrary, the best city going.
Happy 6th anniversary also to Alex at Flaming Pablum today and Bowery Boogie for his 3rd.
