A banquet of random oddities, served with pleasure:

photobooth strip ayun and inky circa 1997

My closely guarded NYC favorites NYC can be yours for less than the cost of a NYC movie ticket – coincidentally, the exact same price as the Zinester’s Guide to NYC.

My favorite books, movies, musicians and tv shows are even more closely guarded secrets, known only to me and my Facebook friends.

The stuff here is more an assorted sampling of the random trash you’d find were my heart an old purse ripped from my chest and upended over the carpet. Click drunk for best results!
