When I was in NYC last, we were playing the neighborhood name game. Our favorite creation: SOBroSO(South Of Broadway Straitening Out)-kd
Sorry the best name is once again in Brooklyn: BoCoCaBoerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens.
To paraphrase Adam Sandler,I disagree, it's a very good name, but i think Donkey Kong is the best name ever.In any case, I wasn't talking about extant neighborhood names, but those created to mock the proliferation of the insanity.-kd
Of course there is the street nickname for the area around Shea Stadium. "From under."
QUESTION: Would you rather be pushed or pulled ?I suppose we could all use a good push now and then.A push assumes you were already going in that same direction anyway.A pull---that's completely different. Pulling someone in an entirely new direction that was never intended.....There's an art form to being pushy.Clearly, not everyone has it mastered.Love, Maxine

Years ago, when I was a senior in high school. There was a Japanese family living next door.The Japanese father kicked his son, a senior in high school, out of the house.The son's crime? The son had pierced his ear. Apparently, that's a big sin for Japanese families.We took him in. My mother was uneasy about the whole thing because she agreed, what was the point of having a pierced ear....if it's gonna cause such problems and get the son kicked out from his father's home ??It seems like a minor thing. Just remove the earring, and you can live in your father's home. What's the big deal? It's just an earring. I can't imagine destroying their whole life, begin kicked out on the street, because he insists on keeping a pierced ear....against his Father's wishes.But as I've stated repeatedly, sons can't be controlled.Not even the Japanese ones!Love, Maxine

There are exactly 88 tiles depicted.Is this a subliminal reference to the fracas at Duke?Are you trying to find a way to get back to that? Have you read any of the troika of books that have come out? Want to?It seems you are trying to say something on that topic, but why be so subtle? Out with it!
I guess everybody's told youAbout my strange diseaseMass appeal will mould youAnaesthetise your dreamsMirrors are all broken nowCause you can't face yourselfFossils of a nations consciousnessAs the brain dead reimburse themselvesI don't want to be left outSpread the sickness all aroundI don't want to climb within Wallow in myselfEveryone wants to feel wantedFear the frozen lakeI feel lonely on the streets at nightCause I love loneliness embraceFarmyards frozen yesterdayThe fox drowned in the new ageBut as I kissed the eye of the storm tonightSpit on the road with all my rageI don't want to be left outSpread the sickness all aroundI don't want to climb withinWallow in myself(Bluebottle Kiss)
The Bottle I met a man perched on a bottleWith a woman deep inside;Rising slowly up towards himFloating on the tears he criedSaid he, ``It's only tears can save her.Tears of sorrow : tears of pain.I'm going to have to feel a lotUntil I have her back again.''All sniffling and snufflingHe said ``It almost makes me laugh;To think that if you weep enoughA man can find his better half.''- Michael Leunig, Gyan & Leunig : _Billy the Rabbit_
