Yesterday was the national day of listening. You can following the guidelines at at the official website or just do it on your own. Basically you take one hour out of the day to interview someone you love about their life (or about someone who is no longer here). You record it, take notes and take pictures. Such a simple concept. I’m doing it with both my Grammy’s when I’m home for Christmas.
Poladroid: Now that Polaroid is no longer, instant photography shutterbugs are hoarding what little of the expensive Polaroid film they have left, only to use it for “special” occasions. Lucky for Mac owners who prefer the camera’s retro look to the slick boldness of modern digital photography, this free application can makeover any photo with the vintage color saturation of a Polaroid picture, complete with the traditional white frame.
The Meat-packing district…not a neighborhood I venture to often unless it’s for a special occasion or a night at Highline, Pop Burger (burgers only) or the Hog Pit (although I have had some good Ganesvoort nights back in the day). And now I have another reason not to venture crosstown…the Hog Pit is MOVING!! To make matters worse, it’s moving to the Flatiron district!? When the hell will I ever go there?? Sad, sad day it is. A Flatiron Hog Pit just won’t be the same.
