The Day There Was No News

Eerie and wonderful. The mood created owes a huge debt to the soundtrack by Ben Frost - Theory of Machines.

She's got to be the greatest Rolley Derby queen ever. Without a doubt.

I'm not sure I've ever idolized a sports hero this way before. Possibly Dorothy Hamill, but maybe that was really just all about her haircut.

Ahhh, Paris

311 to the Rescue

Regarding my earlier post...

After becoming enraged about the state of our poop-covered block, I decided to call 311 to see if there was any city service I could access to help the situation. Within 2 days, there was a brand new liter basket on the corner of the street. Now, granted, there had already been a liter basket in place just across Caton Ave...but perhaps some dog owners felt that crossing the street to dispose of Spot and Fido's messes was going just too far.

Now, I might be just flattering myself, but I like to think the condition of the block has improved. Drastically.
