I went to my Republican Uncle's FB page to find one thing to comment on or to like... Sarah Palin for President to anti-Obama?: Nada! Wow. I wrote Happy Father's Day and ran outta there...
Samsung Galaxy 3S is smokin' since I tinkered in those settings that I tweeted at about 4AM... Yeah, I was up that early... Nuts!
Timothy Burton's Dark Shadows DVD is available on Amazon for $5.99... Got mine. Meantime, I'm re-watching the 1960's Jonathan Frid series an episode a time on Hulu Plus.
Got a huge bunch of fresh kale for $2.50 at the Greenmarket at 57th and 9th Ave yesterday. Had a huge kale salad for lunch, and have enough Kale left for many more meals.

Coolish today after a coolish and wet week. Read the weekend New York Times in my local Hell's Kitchen park late this afternoon. The drunk homeless dudes throwing broken boom boxes and screaming expletives were notably absent there today. Hm. Temperature check: At Noon, it was 73 degrees at Central Park.
First tropical storm of Atlantic hurricane season, named Andrea, formed this week over the Gulf of Mexico. Here we go...
The cool little cicadas' NYC visit won't happen in 2013 after all. The perils of a generic Gmail address.
Joan Rivers is 80 today! Jerry Stiller is 86! Rest in Peace, Esther Williams, 1921-2013
I don't like the new changes to the Gmail Android app... Trying to look and act like Facebook. Why can't we all just get along?... I like email to feel like email... In other news... Google releases a keyboard that seems to be a direct ripoff of the great Swype keyboard app... In Gmail Android App, I'd like to go down the line and check blocks to archive and delete a few emails at once. Looks like its gotta be one at a time? Although I can swipe each listing aside to archive it... Prolly should just do that... How to turn on and off contact images in the new Gmail.
Had to go into settings and re-set silence as default on my Facebook phone notifications. It was set that way before, but devious Facebook snuck in a change to my settings in the last update. Pinterest took similar liberties with their last upgrade. Stop it, all of you!
Jon Stewart weighed in on Citi Bike: "The idea of New Yorkers sharing anything other than STDs is wackadoo" Thanks to the New York Post.
The RCN Internet service is great... Download Speed 50.90 Mbps. Upload Speed 5.85 Mbps with RCN Corp. Grade A. Faster than 86% of the USA.

It's been ten years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired her final episode?? Ten?!?!
Speaking of years... What year do you guess this photo was taken of Times Square. I don't know the answer. Just wondering.
I may need to put a sign on my apartment door that reads: "This is NOT the elevator"
Shuler Hensley and Julie Halston star in Ferenc Molnár's "The Guardsman" dir by Gregory Mosher at The Kennedy Center.
Congrats to Diatribes And Ovations blog on their 100,000 milestone this past week.

Support Joe the produce guy: Bok Choy, Brocc Rabe, Collards, radishes, and more...
They say that Demi Moore's boyfriend has a pearl in his dick. I must confess I sometimes find myself wondering about Ashton Kutcher's dick.
"Just do good, and we'll find a meeting point" - Pope Francis, on atheists, this past week.
Just remembered my childhood neighbors once had a cat named Nicodemus

"It's not the work, it's the stairs" once said the retiring prostitute to Elaine Stritch's father.. But I digress...
Here on Postcards: I removed the old "referrer widget" and abolished all "The Rings" including the Rail and the Ageless Rings which served no purpose in this day and age (that I could detect)... These thingies probably sent some spambots my way... lol... Nicomar can let me know if this alleviates his malware alerts... (anyone else getting malware alerts? If so, tell me the details so I can pinpoint the faulty code)
Should I be annoyed that Flickr dishonestly took my money two short months ago for a two year Pro Account while plotting to open up the entire Flickr service for free?
Yahoo is buying Tumblr for a Billion bucks... Reminds me that I used to have a Tumblr: http://toddster.tumblr.com/ started in 2008 when it was all new!
So why did I drop the Tumblr and stick with the Blogger? I dunno...
Really, Twitter is the most rewarding in so many ways... https://twitter.com/toddhellskitch
And Facebook plods on... Though I fear it will soon crash into MySpace oblivion... It feels too Republican to me on there...
Now MySpace... that's one I never even bothered with...
Friendster? Remember Friendster?
God, I'm old...

Do you need a Spinal Meningitis vaccine?
Don't forget: At Roseland: 16th Annual NYC Tattoo Convention features tattoo artists from around the world Sun 12N-8p... Doesn't look like I'm gonna make it this year...
Disappointed at Ninth Ave Food Festival this year. Uncle Nick's didn't even bother to set up shop on the avenue this year. No calamari, no pig on spit, no ouzo garden. Tradition lost... If you want to see plenty of the same ol, same ol Street Fair Vendors, come to Ninth Avenue Food Fest... Used to be a fine chance to sample ethnic foods from all the Ninth Ave small ethnic restaurants of the 1970s, 80s, and 90's. All a samey plethora of beer and sports bars now... Yawn.
These poor Men of Broadway can't even afford shirts. Join me in pitying them.
Another insane week on tap... My year at work as been unrelenting in pressure... And late May is no exception... Promises to keep me going at full throttle skidding into the end of the fiscal year...
Three day weekend for Memorial Day to be especially appreciated this year...
Day at a time....
