Ignorant Eurotrash can eat me.

I am in rather a bit of pain this evening.

    Meet the Triblets...
i got two pints at the local Häagen-Dazs tonight. Woes needing some 'novocaine for the soul', as it were (think i'll be putting some whiskey in it tonight, makes it go down easier). Nice to have the HD lying around, for however long it lasts... at least having a little back stock in the freezer for another day, if another day...

La Brain Fromage

Better as 'formage'? (you decide!)

My mentor, Drummond Holtz, and I have a saying that goes way back, which is, "Don't put your left leg before the horse that can walk, and if it gives you trouble, remember the right old adage about playing stickball on Ditmars Ave in between Lafayette and the "Grand" concourse of Bedford Avenue: that baseball cards are for the snatching up of old discrepancies better left handled by the powers that be than to actually trade them as some collectibles for the offing." That sure is the way we did it back then.

is Karma on too Wheels

Allez Elite Double

Caption: This is bicycle. Known Also as "Dharma". Is "balls-fuckin' beauty" (as Uncle Femruh has used to say it is :) ). Its a Special Elite Double. To drive, you put it in "H".

You'll spoon here read about new member of family. Be nice because it's all kinds "Turkish Special". Actually, jealous be because it's in "Special." Is a superb brand of bicycle, born in Santa Clarita Valley (aka "Silicon Mounds"), where some behind-scenes folks here Hackwrench GmbH just happen to live. And you believe me, is great biking country there out in farm's land.

Is two-wheeled beauty, this. Newly as acquired by my Turkish handmaid (o/b/o Hackwrench GmbH) was, however, for use obtained in harsh realm of strong New York City, where, indespite this, machine is "soft" of California heritage.And clearly I have kicked the tires cleanly!

Dominates the mean streets of Big Apple.

The Allex Eliffson (Double) is light as Matchbox car, you see, yet comes on several metric tons of good karma. Meet newest member of Hackwrench's elif. Traffic-Fighting/Carpe-Diem'ing Squad!

Best part is riding this bike from that, while "Prius" drivers are "looking" down there "noses" at gas guzzlers, YOU can HERE look down your gas guzzler at "them". And from what my Grand-old-Grammamama had use to say, as I've heard about Priuses and Prius drivers you can probably run them out as well on a Turk!

Happy Tire-ckicking!

Drugs on the Beaches: Shame of the City

Dear Reader:

Here is an old letter I found in my archives. It succinctly wraps up a pretty interesting chapter in my life when I was a young reporter. This was what civilians like yourselves would call a "big career break". This whole incident enabled me to get some of the more high-level, down and dirty assignments New York City and Los Angeles have had to offer over the years. I'm still fighting the good fight with pen, not sword, currently residing in Brooklyn. I frequently travel to Los Angeles. It was in L.A. that I wrote the article referred to below.

Enjoy a little bit of my career history.
