Culture on the Cheap
Live From North 9 Street: Rage Against The Machine

I have been asked by a number of people— including my own mother— if I felt the earthquake today. The answer is a resounding “No”. You see, gentle readers, I was on North 9 Street between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street— which some might recall is the location of a rather substantial pile driver. Something very interesting was happening.
Naturally when I saw this chap standing in the corner the thought he was urinating and/or possibly masturbating immediately came to mind. I mean, this IS New York City after all. No sir, he had something to say to his new “neighbor”. NOTE: shortly after I shot the above footage this chap started screaming “Fuck you!”. While I doubt this changed the situation in any real, lasting way it probably felt good.
