Commuter Tales

This guy read his magazine through everything. Including the two young women who struggled to put their large bag in the storage area over his head. ObliviousLand is an amazing, and convenient, place!

#358: Alphonse Lemaire

This gent reminds me of the guy who feeds all the neighborhood feral cats and yells at kids to get off his lawn. But, well, he might've done a lot worse than that. He is one of Anatole Deibler's "clients." For the background story, click on the "Anatole Deibler" link to the right...

#173: François Prigent

I don't know much about this guy either, but he has the eyes of a mesmerist, and that tells me he was up to no good!

#119: Canut Vromant

This pointy-headed man was one of the "Bandits of Hazebrouck," though the details of their activities remain a mystery to me. He consorted with the Pollet Brothers.

Mr. Ant Farm: Milton Levine

The co-inventor of that perennial childhood favorite, the Ant Farm, died yesterday at the age of 97.

#179: Louis Lefevre

Another of Anatole Deibler's "clients." Not sure what he did, but he looks as though he could have used a sprucing up. Well, can't we all?

#363: Georges Sarrejani

Though he resembles your old high school football coach, or possibly Perry White, Georges Sarrejani was actually a French serial killer.

#96: Joseph Vacher

Now THAT'S a HAT! Interesting that he was drawing attention to his head with such an exotic chapeau.

#354: Paul Véteau

The "Kramer" of his day, this gentleman caught my eye with his energetic 'do and pre-Hitler moustache. Makes me wonder what he was like in the day-to-day... or maybe not, considering I don't know what his crimes were.

#252: Alphonse Daubord

In the ongoing saga of Anatole Deibler/Deibler Family Chronicles, I've decided to draw individual images of the 400 "clients" who struck me the most. I liked this fellow's defiant look. And, of course, as I draw I become incredibly aware of necks. His is long. Easy target.

If this reads like code to you, click on the link to the right for "Anatole Deibler" and you will be able to get all the background info you need.

Nobody Escapes!

Goodbye Jack LaLanne, and thanks to Patti for the inspiration!

Today's workspace. My genius knows no bounds. But it does know food.

My Glorious Trip to Italy (In Pictures)

No travel agents need apply! I had a great time and saw plenty of sights all by myself! Only the good stuff, folks, only the good stuff.
How do you say "Don't ask, don't tell" in Latin?

Any country that has pirate Chihuahua graffiti is doing something incredibly right!

No hanging around here. That's pretty clear.

Cuisine surprise, grocery store style.

The drama of nature.

F-Train: Totally True Photos

Folks, this has to be just about the best train in the world. It appears to make people do amazing things. That is surely worth your $2.50 admission any day.

Just a guy tryin' to get a leg up in the world. Or, on the train.

The train is not just transportation, it's also a hibachi house!

This train originates in Coney Island. Really.


Just testing. I want to be Twitterific in the new year. But only if I can post from this blog to Twitter simultaneously. There are only so many hours in a day I can devote to being Twitterific.

Too Much Holiday Indulgence? It Could Be Worse.

In case you were wanting a "yardstick" for your post-holiday indulgence situation... Let's hope 2011 includes a return to both moderation and restaurant health codes!
