In game companion

I definitely think WoW has taken on a softer approach, a new line of users who require softer, more life-like in game stuff... (unlike the in-game companions I carry - a skull made of smoke, a skeleton baby dragon with blue fire, a spider etc etc). :-D

Never the less, this one was kind of cute anyway. :-)

Bill Cunningham - New York

I just watched a terrific documentary about a very passionate man.
And I'm really happy I watched it too because I feel a little lifted by the experience. It doesn't happen often. :-)

Zeitgeist film link.
Link to Mr Cunningham's own words about himself in the New York Times.

Why we travel

NYTimes: Monument Valley 2011, EvaGrayzel - photo by Jeremy Cohen

Why we travel - why do we travel?
Why do you travel?

A beautiful photographic article by The New York Times:

I travel because I can. I am unbelievably fortunate to have that ability. To have the means and resources to go places. I am also happy to have the curiosity and the nerve to go. I sometimes (often?) have a need to travel, to get out of my context and restore my perspective to normal proportions.

Secret NYC subway station: City Hall

A stunningly beautiful subway station, closed to the public, can still be accessed (or rather viewed) by staying on number 6 train past its end station Brooklyn Bridge. The train makes a "loop" and passes through the closed down station on its way back to make the return journey as 6-train heading for Pelham Bay Park (?).


So many things I didn't know to look for when we visited New York last year. So many things.
Simply have to go back. :-)

No nay never

World's longest waterslide, it is called 'Insano' and you have to travel to Brazil to "enjoy" it.

Nope. Wouldn't think so.

Does New York need a commercial?

I really don't think New York need a commercial. But I certainly don't mind watching this one. :-D
