Great photo. The "masturbate" sign makes me nostalgic for the much more piratey, pre-cleanup Times Square.

Now winter downs the dying of the year,
And night is all a settlement of snow;
From the soft street the rooms of houses show
A gathered light, a shapen atmosphere,
Like frozen-over lakes whose ice is thin
And still allows some stirring down within.

I’ve known the wind by water banks to shake
The late leaves down, which frozen where they fell
And held in ice as dancers in a spell
Fluttered all winter long into a lake;
Graved on the dark in gestures of descent,
They seemed their own most perfect monument.

There was perfection in the death of ferns
Which laid their fragile cheeks against the stone
A million years. Great mammoths overthrown
Composedly have made their long sojourns,
Like palaces of patience, in the gray
And changeless lands of ice. And at Pompeii

The little dog lay curled and did not rise
But slept the deeper as the ashes rose
And found the people incomplete, and froze
The random hands, the loose unready eyes
Of men expecting yet another sun
To do the shapely thing they had not done.

These sudden ends of time must give us pause.
We fray into the future, rarely wrought
Save in the tapestries of afterthought.
More time, more time. Barrages of applause
Come muffled from a buried radio.
The New-year bells are wrangling with the snow.

If you click the pic to expand it, you can see an owl talking to Conan O'Brien and the caption reads, "OBEY." Funny.

It makes me nostalgic for the time Manhattan was still Manhattan, when anyone could live there and it hadn't become a haven for the bland, boring gentry.

Have no money to buy some real estate? You not have to worry, because it is available to get the personal loans to resolve all the problems. So take a short term loan to buy all you need.

And I remembered of Slavoj Zizek also. First time I heard about this movie was in a video-lecture of him.

Great Pic, Pirate.
Great Post.
Great Text.
