Ya see, this is why I thought you were retiring! Runnin outta gas old boy? Ass cancer finally gettin to ya? Easiest, "hippest" thing to do is post some field photo of some d-bag and goof on it...I mean how many style bloggers do that shit, right? Unless this is just a continuation of the blogger parody and I have missed the joke again???

Shut up OG, that was funny.

View- OG never see moose and squirrel.

Oyster Guy said...

Yeah, we had Rocky and Bullwinkle up hear too...a rather good Cold War satire, not up to the level of say Dr. Strangelove mind you but good for younger audiences...

Indeed.

Wanna see me pull a rabbit outta my hat?

Ah, Madison Ave, another of your subtleties. Street of lies. Like the unconvincing lie that mangled lambskin caught in the selvaging machine has actually been "tumbled," for the artisanal look, short production you understand. Ok, forget the Ritz, I hate going there too. "Good afternoon!" Vulgar. "Good morning!" Thought you'd like the car show, though.

Love the "Anything Goes" cab sign in the back.

Hey OG, is goofing on field pictures as played as leaving comments goofing on a blogger?

How many oysters need to be cracked to find a pearl?

Besides its much more fun to clown Tintin's short arms.

pleasse go easy on me Bro, I am suffering from a reality deficit, a temporal rift in my space/time/trad/hipster continuum. I intend to start drinking heavily tonight.

Looks like someone skinned a couch in Jersey. This photo might be able to serve as evidence at his poaching hearing.

YWP - I just spit my scotch out. You owe me a dollar.

Ah, geez guys, the poor guy probably received this atrocity from his Ukrainian mail-order bride. He was practically REQUIRED to wear it out of the house this morning.

How the hell can we miss you if you won't go away?

Someone should tell Boris Badenov the 80's were over.

Anon 11:08- Madison Ave reminds me of what Chris Hitchens said about Jerry Fawlwell, "If you gave him an enema you could bury him in a matchbox.

Cathleen- Thanks. I never saw noticed it.

Bro- What the heck are you talking about?

Anon 14:04 - They are. Looks like they all went to Nordstrom for their trousers.

Main Line- Thanks for the contemporary reference.

Oyster Guy (or is Gi?),
We're all hipsters in our own special way.

Anon 16:32 - They come. They go. They take what they want from me and then toss me to the curb.

MF Smith- He may be one of the Russians who drive vans full of strippers around northern NJ. I usually see them in Brioni buying $10k custom suits. And we won the Cold War?

tim- My mother told me the same thing when I was eight.

Anon 20:58 - No, he's not a leather man. He uses Naugahyde. Understandable mistake.

Anon 23:43 - C'mon now. Knocking Ralph is so easy...Can't you think of anything... Hey, did you hear RL is doing a new store concept called 3rd Rike? Lots of black leather with skulls and crossbones. Very slimming.

Vermont Prep- No one wore that in the 80s.

Red Pill or Blue Pill?

saw this guy's father (Boris Sr.) crossing Ontario St. at Fairbanks in Chicago yesterday. 100 lbs heavier and wearing the same coat several sizes up. I had my phone out ready to catch a shot of him from behind, but he'd slunk (is that a word) down the stairs of Timothy O'Toole's where there was, no doubt, an admiring crowd. I was left being that guy wetting himself with laughter on the street. To make it worse, it was 52 degrees. Would never have even noticed him if not for your post.
