Park Slope Slothful


Not far from the truth. The above illustrated life forms could actually be my neighbors; a universal blend of seasoned or fledgling globetrotter and vagrant, hippie and hipster, with a dash of intellectual eccentric and a splash of moronic ne’er-do-well. I’m happy that my wife and I only live here, within our own fashionable self-exile amongst a horde of exiles. Naturally, we keep the doors and windows tightly locked and bolted.

I Feel Pretty…Bored


Before I forget (which I’ll do presently), Mallory Hagan aka Miss New York  has been crowned Miss America 2013. Of course, she’s obviously gorgeous, ostensibly talented, and I’m sure she’s a sweet gal. What’ more, Mallory, who hails from Alabama, now hails from right here in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Maybe I saw her once or twice around the neighborhood without even knowing it; there are so many obviously gorgeous, ostensibly talented, sweet gals in Park Slope that I probably didn’t notice our future Miss New York among our everyday aesthetic crowd.

Now You Hear It, Now You Don’t

For our latest mission 23 actors and 2 dogs infiltrated a public space and went on “mute” at coordinated intervals. The mission took place near the northern entrance to Prospect Park in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The Mute Button was produced by Improv Everywhere as part of the Guggenheim Museum exhibition stillspotting nyc.

I happen to live in this region of the world and, as fate would have it, was there in Prospect Park at the time walking Morris, my pet crocodile. I failed to notice anything unusual going on until I found this clip on You Tube.
