: the subway :

in a word: awesome.

i believe this is called Day-Glo

alright, I know this is a little blurry, but bear with me. It's an illustration of the heralded moonwalk, but the astronaut is wearing bling and carrying a boombox. Plus the flag has a logo on it rather than asserting a nationality. This is pretty much heroin to "postmodern" cultural theory academics. If only they were on the subway to see it . . .

My entire life all I've wanted is to live in a city with its own condoms.
Finally my dream has come true.

What a great scene: the graffiti truck, the mailboxes, the (noticeably empty) bike rack.
And the hip urban princess foregrounded by a traffic barrel.
