Random Phone Pics

    You know what they ought to make…?  They ought to make an app so that a cell phone owner can command their own phone to destroy its data in the event it is lost or stolen.  I know this technology already exists for PCs.  A few years ago, I knew a man whose colleague tried some nasty corporate skullduggary–informations theft, basically.  

     We were hanging out in his apartment–the one with the great view of Central Park.  The guy was grinning and breaking out the champagne.  “What he doesn’t know is that I have access to every single one of his computers which uses our technology!  I just cleared them all!  He’s going to get a SURPRISE when he tries to log on! HA!”

       “Wow,” I said.  “That’s like something out of James Bond.”

       My host waved his hand.  “Everyone uses it these days.” 

       I miss that guy.  He was a lot of fun.  

       I clean out my phone all the time, but I am still anxious about it falling into the wrong hands.  

        Here are some random pics I found while deleting this morning. 

     First, bizarre graffiti found written on wall of subway station.

Mr. Teeth Will Eat the Whole World


      Next, Washington Square Park, for visitors of this blog who have not seen NYC (you should come visit!):

Washington Square Park
      
      This is a book I bought, Journey to the End of the Night, by Celine.  It’s my first time reading Celine, and the jury’s still out.  There’s some excellent writing in here and he’s also pretty damn funny.  Home boy also has a major attitude problem.  I am hardly a fan of humanity, but Celine’s cynicism is pretty breathtaking.  I am sure he would hold my bush-league cynicism beneath contempt, haahaha.  But to be fair: he has a point. 
      I can only read it chapter-by-chapter.  It’s just too fucking much.
       It’s good, though.
       If you’ve read him, what did you think? 

Village Bookstore

       Look at the size of this huge Kit Kat.  The picture doesn’t really do it justice.  It’s as big as Michael Jordan’s hand.  For some reason, I thought it was comical.
