*Once in a very very blue moon I will encounter something which quite frankly defies an easy— if any— description. This will have to suffice.

Great Moments in Advertising Placement: Astoria Edition

Get Curly 600

My not-so-inner nerd/freak was jumping for joy upon making this discovery. So much so I had to point out my find to the Mister:

What we are seeing here are two ways one can get curly. You can use the product advertised on that billboard or you can simply have sex in Athena’s temple.*

*Special thanks/props go out to a fellow (owner?) at the Greenpoint Toy Center for making me aware of this. NOTE: he did so because I was purchasing a Medusa figurine which now stands watch atop my monitor. Thanks!

Yesterday evening the Mister and I ventured to Astoria to support our buddy Kevin Walsh, who happens to have a show of his photography at the Greater Astoria Historical Society.  For those of you keeping count, this is the second day in a row we have ventured to the county of Queens. Anyhoo, it has been awhile I have been to my former stomping grounds (I lived in Astoria briefly during graduate school) so I brought along my camera and took a few photographs. Follow are some highlights. Enjoy!

What Elvira and Marilyn Monroe have to do with shoes I do not know. Regardless I found this display charming.

CHANGE

Change may have come to America but it’s still business as usual at this storefront. Despite his odious politics the man behind this missive is— believe it or not— a very nice guy. I have spoken to him.

I did a double take at this. Something else the greater Steinway Street and Broadway area sports are really cool old-school storefronts.

WINES

Like this…

and this.

A little ennui over pizza. And last— but hardly least—

shitphone

my visit to Astoria taught me why I should never, EVER patronize a public pay phone again.

Damn.
