Osama bin Laden is dead.
Now that that’s out of the way lets get back to reality TV.
Lord of the Fleas is a new reality show on the Discovery channel. They were filming an episode in Williamsburg on Sunday and I met the host while on line for the port-a-potty. He was checking his hair in the reflection of a silver paneled truck parked nearby when I told him not to worry, he looked good. This was before I had any idea who he was, so I assumed he was just a vain dude, not a tv show character. He explained to me that he was filming this new show and proceeded to tell me all about it. The premise is find it, fix it, sell it. Basically they find stuff that people are discarding, make it cooler, and then sell it. Each episode will take place at another flea market throughout the United States of America. Each episode will also give away any remaining Flea market secrets, making our job that more difficult.
The timing is funny now that NYC is giving fines starting at $100.00 for any person seen removing refuse from another person’s trash cans or garbage area, including the curb. The fine grows larger if you are then witnessed, putting said garbage, into a vehicle.
I asked the host why everything I like is ruined by lousy fucking reality TV. I think I said it a little nastier to be honest. I couldn’t tell if this pissed him off or not. He seemed unmoved, but I don’t foresee any Brooklyn Cream cameos in the near future.
Back to OBL. If George Bush were still president he would not have “buried” Osama bin Laden at sea. He would strike a deal with Pakistan, and detain, indefinitely, anyone who came within 5 miles of Osama’s grave.
Thankfully, Dubya couldn’t get the job done or we would be in even more trouble.
Enough politics. Below are some wonderful photographs to take your mind off of anything serious. Sit back, relax, and enjoy…….
Another post will be up real soon. Our computer’s wifi connection is being shy right now.
Have a wonderful day,
