The Word On The Street: No

Greenpoint Street Find Du Jour

I have a saying, it goes as follows:

You take care of the community and the community will take care.

I have seen this demonstrated time and time again in the 11222. And today the Greenpoint Garbage Gods really delivered.

As I was running errands something caught the corner of my eye. I went in for a closer look.

Now this is interesting.
I have found a lot of interesting shit walking around north Brooklyn. Anal beads, pornography of every stripe imaginable; even a 4′ tall plastic statue of Simon the Chipmunk (which graces our dining room). This, however, is a first: a voodoo doll.

It should go without saying I brought him (?) home. Mister Heather, despite being a professed atheist, is unnerved by my new friend. I assured him as things go:

I tend to have good working relationships with things which may otherwise want to rip your face off.

I am not sure this provided the solace he needed. However he did reach a level of grudging acceptance when I read to him what this item does:

Your doll is a medium to focus on a problem or desire. You can personalize with hair, small photo or any small item…

As it would happen I do have a problem and it is my utmost desire that it GO AWAY. FOREVER. Best of all despite that party’s best efforts, I got photos too. Now if you all don’t mind it is time to get busy. Cheers!

It would appear these missives have finally made their way to this side of the East River. Not a minute too soon, I will add…

Urban Artifact, Part II: 949 Days & Counting

Prison Bear June 10 2015 nys

The facial expression pretty much says it all. Ever wondered what 949 days of non-stop “oversight” of Franklin Street and Greenpoint Avenue will do to you? Well, now you know. Like the hat, however…

Crosstown Local Photos Du Jour: Great Moments In Advertising Placement

Great moments in advertising nys

Those of you who have not done so already really should to take a moment to enjoy this amusing (and therefore completely unintentional) choice of advertising placement courtesy of the M.T.A. On the left we have Amy Schumer. As you can see she is flanked by a number of buttocks. This is of course in reference to this sketch. On the right we have an advertisement for buttock enhancement because apparently folks do in fact have and will expend $3,900 to get a bigger ass. Who knew?

This being the G train it goes without saying that both advertisements have been “enhanced”. The advertisement on the right received a fart cloud. Nice. Ms. Schumer on the other hand (quite literally)…

Happy Snail nys

got this happy little snail. Given the vandalism¬†modus operandi hereabouts (penis in mouth) I am going to take this as a sign of respect— possibly even fan-dom. Right on.

Taken today, March 8th 2015. While I am on the subject (this being the Crosstown Local and spring), methinks I spotted the Easter Bunny availing himself of the G train today. Or is it Eeyore? I’ll let you, gentle readers, make the call.

Somehow I am reminded of the adage emblazoned on the Farley Post Office:

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers Prison Bear from the swift completion of their appointed rounds vigilant watch over Greenpoint Avenue.

And of course two sets of bars do not hurt. In any case, he has an acquired a new and rather apropos companion in the manner of a penguin. Excellent.
