Urban Fur: Larry Gets An Apprentice…

(and he’s none too happy about it)

Despite the fact he has recently been divested of his “manhood”, spends most of the day sleeping (which I envy) and is spoon fed by his “mom”, Neer, Larry has achieved a certain reputation in the neighborhood. That being the local “bad ass”. You see, when not sleeping, eating or overseeing the fruit stand out front Larry likes to patrol his domain. The word on the street is he will put both cats and dogs in their place. Larry, it would seem, is an equal opportunity bully.

So naturally when this jackass urged his pug to make the acquaintance of Larry (presumably because he thought a dog would scare a cat and that would be funny) I took interest. The pup did his master’s bidding. Larry fixed him with a stare and held his ground. The pup quickly retreated. So it goes in the furban jungle of Greenpoint.

What has led to Larry’s recent protectiveness of his “territory”, you ask? Perhaps the reason lies at home?

For reasons unclear this little one found his way to Larry’s place of employment/enjoyment.

AJ, as I will call him (I checked— yeah, I’m a pussy perv), is damned cute…

and immensely curious about his new surroundings.

What the future holds for AJ has yet to be determined— but I suspect it will involve a vet visit and neutering when he is old enough. In the meantime don’t mess with Larry. As a new “dad” he has a lot on his mind right now.

The tattoo, that is.

This gem was captured by Greenpointless at the Garden Spot’s very own Shayz Lounge. Miss Heather to Bill Murray: Quit wasting your time in Williamsburg, come to Greenpoint where you will get the reverence and respect you truly deserve!

TODAY: Roommate Rendezvous

Okay, I have to admit that the “Open House Tour Available” part of this flier doesn’t exactly sit well with me— but here it is anyway. Tomorrow starting at 2:00 p.m. Good Company will be hosting “Roommate Rendezvous”: a roommate finding party where one can “drink”, “socialize” and “make real connections”. It would appear that drink specials are also in the offing as well.

LAST GASP: Presenting The Night Gallery

June 25, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11211, Advanced Life Forms, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 

It is not as if I didn’t see it coming. I did. Yesterday when I went to grab a beverage from a local bodega I spied a man twitching and talking to himself. He helped himself to a fistful of ice cooling a bin of fresh fruit. This was summarily tossed in his mouth and crunched upon with much ferocity. Welcome to north Brooklyn in the summer. I’ve seen enough of them to know what they entail. However, I was not prepared for something I spied on Graham Avenue this evening. Something so extraordinary it simply cannot wait until tomorrow. Without further ado, here it is.

Whenever I see an arrangement such as this “my little voice” tells me that I have stumbled upon a very special find.

My little voice is rarely wrong.

Yup.

We’ll take these one by one starting with the item at the top left.

I have to admit it: I rather like this.

For “special people”, “friends” and “movie stars”— and by written invitation only? What is this, the Algonquin Round Table? This is one class operation!

I have no idea how these factor into this installation— but here they are.

But I suppose we should expect the unexpected at a place in north Brooklyn that calls itself  “The Night Gallery”. If any of you, dear readers, want to see something truly, um, interesting swing by this establishment. It can be found on the western side of Graham Avenue between Ainslie Street and Devoe Street methinks. I was unable to get an exact address because the street number was covered by a “No Trespassing” sign. Oh yeah, don’t tell ’em I sent you.

P.S.: One thing I was unable to capture on film were all the flies milling about in the window. It was like something out of The Amityville Horror. Creepy.
