80’s Flashback

Psychedelic Furs, Love My Way, 1982. In 1980 I returned the P-Furs’ self-titled debut album to the friend who’d lent it, dismissing it as pretentious and unlistenable. He was very disappointed in me. The following year’s Dumb Waiters and Pretty In Pink singles from Talk, Talk, Talk made me reconsider, but it was 1982’s Love My Way that completed my ...

Empire Envy

The two shots below are computer renderings of the view from the Empire State Building and what the view would be, were the ESB as tall as the almost-completed Burj Dubai, which is over 1000 feet taller even though Dubai suffers no lack of available land, relative to Manhattan.

Day Of Atonement

Anybody working today? The subway was the ghost town it always is on Yom Kippur. Even as a non-believer, I like the concept of a special day for forgiving your enemies and apologizing to those you’ve wronged, although it does feel somewhat 12-steppy.
