yesterday The Zuck purchased instagram for a cool billie. i have maybe 50+ "photos" on there, mostly having used it for snapshots and as a place to keep little mementos i don't care to 'share,' necessarily. must we share everything? do you really want to see everything? herein lies my beef with modern times. and i shan't get with them, nay. shout out to the venerable J.W. at TNYer, 20th floor at 4 times square, manhattan. gracias a ella. as per the new yorker's steez there is a little essay to be had and 14 photos to be perused, here: slideshow. i'm partial to the bear on the bench, but you already know that!
