I'VE BEEN BUSY THINKING OF THINGS TO SAY, PETER
April 23, 2003




It might have taken a small mention [thanks heif] in the blooming article in Salon about Fotolog to inspire me to post here. Lately these days I've been spending all my i-freetime on my own fotolog.

There are a lot of things I wish for. I wish that I could drink coffee all day without turning insanely wired. I wish my teeth were whiter, and that I could practice banjo 4 hours a day and I really wish I could sing like Georgia in YoLaTengo. I wish that this sewing machine worked and my cd player didn't scratch my cds and I wish someone would come over and mop my kitchen floor. I wish that the ban on smoking had been solved in another way, so that maybe there was a test of air quality which had to be maintained inside bars via running some high-end air purifiers instead of sending smokers outside, which not only interupts their socializing indoors, but also puts them on the sidewalk below my window from the 3 bars on this block, and they are sometimes loud talkers. I wish the entire world would become Buddhist (myself included), really, because that would sure help, but mostly right now I wish I could walk through the 3 minute transfer from the 4/5/6 to the L train at Union Square 14th street subway station without having to plug my ears to save myself from being brought to my knees by the devil-banshee-squeals which scream from the trains arriving and leaving there.

Rest in Peace Nina Simone.

ICING OFF THE CAKE?
April 1, 2003

snow like icing sliding off car top

i know we've all had enough of this cake
Eel_03 sends us good info about some fellow in eL.A. who's already on the nudie-cake scene: (trés inspiring. Don't think it's too late for Brooklyn. we need cake):
"From his Cake and Art shop, Glenn von Kickel can create literally anything with cake: the Getty Museum, toothbrushes, atomic explosions, ... and the entire animal kingdom.... (His) cakes go for anywhere from $15 to $5,000. ...You might dispense with the traditional three-tiered wedding cake and opt for one of von Kickel's clever specialties: a man and a woman in a bathtub. And then there's the X-rated menu of body parts and various sex acts. Yes boobs, balls, bestiality and other erotic-themed eats go flying out the door, especially come bachelorette season."

FAIRE AMOUR, PAS LA GUERRE
03 30 03
krispy kreme raspberry filled ; 14th street
One day on Broadway as I was leaning over a fruit-vendor's street-cart, inspecting some cherries in summertime Manhattan, the peddler (peddler?) shoved one of the cherries right into my mouth in pursuasion that they were ripe and delicious. The gesture was as sweet as the cherry. But all I could think about were the black, carcinogenic specks of bus and car exhaust accumulated on the surface of that cherry, which, as the fruit dissolved in my mouth around the pit, were now mine. (Forget about the time I dropped my hotdog in the gutter and picked it up and finished it, this seemed potentially gross.)
Only later did I wonder, where had his hands been that day? His fingernails, were they grimy?

Which reminds me of the time while working at CBS, on a visit to the snack bar tucked in the back offices of 60 Minutes, Mike Wallace shoved a peanut-butter cookie into my mouth (explaining?) "Have a cookie! It's good for you."




I DRINK BEAUJOLAIS AND I VOTE
MAR 29, 2003
Here're my new plans B:
B-a: Get masters degree in Pop Culture, and then write. About pop culture.
B-b: Finally start that nude-cake decorating company. Become rich selling nude cakes to the stars. (Nude cakes aren't wtihout icing, but the icing is without clothes.)
B-c: Get honorary-degree in banjo from Scruggs, and then play banjo. With Scruggs.
B-d: Stop eating thin mints.
B-e: Jeweler? or organic farmer or couch reupholsterer.
B-f: Breakfast-diner operator. Bloody marys and coffee and pancakes. Fried eggs over easy. Toast. Homefries. Ketchup.
