the Gates of NY

Alright, now I know I’m supposed to be inspired by things like this. But I have to tell you, it was a waste of time. As my sister put it, “its just some left over material on top of orange metal. What the hell is the point? Does it look cool? yes, was it necessary? hell no!” Then she uttered, “get the hell out of my city, tourists!” I’ll just assume she wasn’t talking to me (she has other names for me than “tourists”).

Although, this was a nice picture my friend took. So, I guess there might have been one redeeming quality.

    Then again, Josh, your sister is a raving bitch.

    Most oddly insightful comment I heard was: “I really hate the gates. The color is artificial and unnatural and it contrasts with the natural tones of the park this time of year. And the shape of the structure is inorganic, completely contrasting with the delicate fractal patterns of the bare tree branches.”

    If you remove the first sentence of that comment, you have the artists goal. This guy just doesn’t like it. On the other hand, your sister is a bitch.

    True. But it also doesn’t mean she’s wrong either.

    seems awful harsh there, Dan… I don’t know her, granted, but calling her out on a web site that she doesn’t read….

    Josh, what was Laurie’s first email account when you got your domain?

    Never mind, strike that. As funny as this is to me and Josh, we’re sharing a private joke on the internet. And that’s wrong. Especially since google finds this site A LOT, and I’m sure JT’s last name is floating around this site.

    I kinda figured that it was a joke, but left the comment to point out that, you know, on this site I’m a character in an Indian TV series and, well, someone might get the wrong idea about his sis. ;-)

    Oh, see, on this site I’m an expert in hair dye help. So I’m already a little confused :)
