jobs, museums, stuff

I have had some heinous jobs in my time. I think the worst of the worst was bartending at a sports bar in murray hill, but a close second was waitressing at one of those cafes in that nyu/bleecker street hell vortex where there are shitty "italian" cafes on every corner. I forget which one it was that I worked at (I quit after a day) but I hope it was Le Figaro because that joint just closed, which is for the best, if it actually was the place I worked at. See you in hell, suckers. If it wasn't Le Figaro that I worked at, then I'm sorry, and I hope Le Figaro rests in peace.

Unrelated, here are two museums I'm gonna check out soon.
Queens County Farm Museum

Hot damn, that is one fine lookin sheep! And he makes his home in Queens. Can't wait to meet him.

Also the Urban Archives exhibit at the Bronx Museum.
I've never heard of Lisa Kahane who took the above photo, so maybe this exhibit will be full of lost treasure type stuff. A film I made a few years ago showed at this museum as part of some hip hop festival and that makes me want to support them even more. It's gonna be sick!

As someone who spends a lot of time working with children, I've given some thought to various approaches in education. In Charlie Murphy, I believe I have found a role model whose philosophy I can get behind.

Ye Olde Men of Metal

Gentle, curly Kirk Hammett....happy birthday to you, sir.
Here is Kirk 26 years ago when he was still playing in Exodus. The rest of this dude "Umlaut555"'s Ye Olde Metal Days set is even better.

Hail To The Queens

Bride of Dracula, MC Lyte again, Mona from "Vagabond", Coco from "Fame," and the Mighty Borough. Some personal heroes of mine.

Today I saw this chick eating a hot dog on the subway and I was psyched. I love a shameless woman. Speaking of which, why is it that every dude I know has a web site or blog and none of my girlfriends do? Let's get in the game, ladies. Seems like every blog I see by a girl is about fashion. Fuck that. Not like blogs are so important or the only way to say your piece but I'd like some variety out there, shee-it.

The following shit is on fire:

At least, according to my book of fire.

face time with the man:

i especially recommend rahsaan roland kirk and earth, wind and fire episodes:

lemme just figure out how to embed stuff up on this fucker and then i'll be unstoppable.
