barren Bleecker
most of the length of Bleecker St is packed with shops and restarants, except the last couple blocks on the east end. they have a strange, quite vibe. virtually store-less, but full of graffiti and peeks at NY past…

Future New York

Future New York
paper is the perfect collectable for city living. there’s tons of great stuff out there to find and it’s easy to store. under the bed we’ve got a box full of interesting postcards, photos and other various scraps of paper collected over the years. inspired by One Man Safari, we took a snap of one of our favorites, a cool old NY postcard (circa 1917) titled: Future New York, “The City of Skyscrapers,” New York – that depicts a city packed with skyscrapers, a sky filled with small air craft and trains that run through buildings…

Madonna makeover
reading in the news that Madonna’s “reps are interviewing potential plastic surgeons” made us curious what work she’ll get done and how it will look. and since we’re not good at waiting, we jumped ahead and made her over in photoshop. here’s what Madonna might look like with an eye lift, jaw lift, skin peal, lip collagen and the little bump in her nose removed

scariest museum in the world

scariest museum in the world
we stumbled on the super creepy museum of ventriloquist dummies

Ventriloquist_dummies

from the Ventriloquist Museum page on the Roadside America website…

Lisa Sweasy, the curator, is an energetic encyclopedia of ventriloquism facts and history, and she understands that one of her jobs is to be candid about dummy-phobia and to put visitors’ fears to rest. Her eyes flash, however, when she describes people who freak out in front of the dummies and insist, “They’re staring at me!”… “Why would someone like that come here?” she asks. “Ninety percent of ventriloquism is uplifting and funny and cute. Clowns are scarier.”

ah, sorry Lisa, we disagree. and will not be stopping by for the “once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity to sit in “an entire classroom of dummies assembled in school chairs”.
