  2. Years ago, he yelled at me and called me a draft dodging f*##^t. I’ve been called plenty , but I really liked his style. He’s a character. I think he was addressing the general vibe of Bedford avenue of 15 years ago. I bet he has A LOT more to say about the neighbors now.

  4. I do not think he can really control his behavior. By all appearances he seems to have Tourettes Syndrome.

  6. I think so too. I’ve passed him many a time and it does sound like Tourettes but I also think he has more going on there too.

  8. Yeah, Mr. Roboto, as me and the wife call him, lives across the street from me, and we hear him every day. I think he’s a nice guy and much more functioning than outwardly apparent. My fav Mr. Roboto moment was when I was voting for the 08 pres election and he was in line behind me. It was then I realized he was not limited to cool dance moves on Norman Ave.

Tell me what you're thinking...
