Life is a Slow Harold

"I hope he arouses the fire that's dormant in the innermost recesses of my soul, I plan to face him with the zeal of a challenger.''

Ichiro Suzuki on facing Daisuke Matsuzaka for the first time in America. I want so badly to get excited about the Mariners this year, especially with King Felix looking like a Future Hall of Famer, but I'm afraid of the long term, when Felix and Ichiro break our hearts and follow A-Rod, Griffey, and the Big Unit out to sunnier skies.


My friend Jeremy told me about a bit of graffiti in the Union Square subway station that always confused him, "Film does not equal cinema." What does that even mean? What made someone feel so strongly about that that they sharpied it onto a pole? It's something that has been on his mind for months now.

This last week he house sat for the Executive Director of The Atlantic Theater. His first morning there, he went down the stairs of the B and Q Prospect Ave subway station and noticed someone had sharpied on a pole "Film and cinema are actually the same thing." You never know where the answer is going to be.
