[video] Love Language - Sparxx @Lauromatinee

I lost all of my bookmarks for about 2 months (poor crashed computer) but have sudden been able to recover them!! Yay!! This lead me to a lot undiscovered, great music content that smaller sites have posted over those 2 months. Hence, this video!

Inaugural 13.1 New York Race -- April 3, 2010

I have a new race on the horizon, and this time it's in Queens! I'm thinking I should make it a goal to run a half in every borough, and then run the NYC Marathon afterwards Talk about seeing the sites; and I'll most probably never want to run in NYC again after it, ha.

Part of the national 13.1 race series (which has already established races in Fort Launderdale, LA, Chicago and Boston), this half-marathon is the first of its kind, looping through Flushing Meadows Park and around it's many fountains, stadiums and the always visually stimulating Unisphere.

Here's the course map:

They claim that there is a party associated with this race, though no details have been posted yet. I'm looking forward to it!

Two New Albums You Should Definitely Give a Listen To

Today, I...

...met a llama during a random parade on Graham Avenue and Metropolitan...

...and his friendly camel acquaintance...

...ran into the end celebration of Improv Everywhere's No Pants Subway Ride at Union Square... ::UPDATE:: More photos here!

...with some of the pant-less participants dancing away over our heads...

...and learned Moleskins are super cheap at the Strand!!

I also got to the gym for the 4th straight time in a row that I intended!!
Excellent Sunday.

Brooklyn Flea - One Hanson Place

The Brooklyn Fleas has moved for the next 14 weekends to One Hanson Place, just around the corner from BAM and across from the Atlantic LIRR terminal. It's gorgeous!! And as always, there is plenty to buy and plenty to eat.

Crab claws, creepy broken babies...

... and flannel for all!
