Our Neighbors, Sunday Morning Not brunching on artisanal omelettes and microgreens poring over the Times, our neighbors- the salt of the earth- spend Sunday morning improving their aim.

Our Neighbors, Sunday Morning

Not brunching on artisanal omelettes and microgreens poring over the Times, our neighbors- the salt of the earth- spend Sunday morning improving their aim.

We sorely miss the bullet-proofed Chinese joints in the Bronx. Money in the slot and ten minutes later your order of half chicken, fried rice for 4.99 is done.

Kasia in Magenta, 2013

Snared in the tangled skein of the surveillance state and economic oppression we lose focus on the dignity of the individual, the primacy of the human spirit. That we will restore, with paint on canvas.

Can This Activist Stop Hollywood Development? Not a snowball’s chance in hell will Millenium tower project hater Sandy Summer make a dent in the inexorable flow of luxury residential construction but she did make a nifty prop and the sometime-art department buyer took her case to the steps of Los Angeles City Hall, and that’s commendable. While an organized opposition has voiced a myriad of reasons to squash the development, Summer’s main gripe is aesthetic; she finds skyscrapers unappealing and she don’t want the damn view of the damn Hollywood sign obscured. But the fact is those who got it like that will pay top dollar for a clear view from a lofty lux abode, and down at the bottom some minimum wage gigs will be generated by the mixed use property.

Evokes a Gerhard Richter scrape on-scrape off painting; rather it’s the legalese covering the ass of parking lot monopoly” Joe’s” in Downtown LA. Another incentive to ride the bus.
