You Need to Vote

    Errol Morris is one of my favorite filmmakers.  I love The Fog of War.  I’ve probably watched it ten times.

     Here’s a fun (and funny) short film about voting.

    You have to vote.  Please please please.  The cynic in my likes to joke If voting made a difference, they wouldn’t let us do it…but think about how different the world would be if Al Gore was elected in 2000.

    The explosion at the ConEd plant that knocked out my neighborhood’s power.  Did you see this…?  It reminded me of video of Baghdad being bombed during the invasion.  Shit.

 The electricity was returned last night.

      Alle-freaking-luhia!!!  NO MORE SLEEPING IN MY SWEATS!

      Sooooooo muuuuuuch to get caught up on!   Where’s the adderall…?  Clean this place!  Prepare lesson for Monday morning!  Schedule independent secret job appointments!  Call Mom!  The Surgeon!  And I’m going to go see that new Denzel Washington movie with my AA group–it’s about an alcoholic.  

      Here’s some more photos:

“Patty’s Tacos?”  What sort of fucked-up confused name is that for a taco truck?  Are there any people named “PATTY” in Mexico? 

Help find this lost Beagle, Arthur!  Look at how scared he looks!

      Hi.  I have more pics, which I will try to post sometime soon, but right now I don’t have access to the internet at home.  Or running water.  Or heat.  Or light.  

      Ah, how I have dreamed of a life without the ever-present nuisance of electricity! *sarcasm*

      I am camping out in my apartment.  It sucks.  It’s dirty and the novelty of living by candlelight wore off on night 2.  I’m wearing spandex jogging pants because I have no clean jeans or cords and I am NOT going to wear my nice suit trousers while I run around town foraging for a power outlet to charge my phone.

     Can’t complain.  Did you see the news reports of those poor folks out on Staten Island?  Lord have mercy.  

      Here’s a few, from my neighborhood:

incredibly, you can’t see this tree at night.  People walk into it. 

look at that trunk!

See that..?  29th Street, and the traffic lights finally come on a block or two away…
