New York Doll


It was a luxurious meeting of day and night. The sky was clear and blue. Slowly the horizon swallowed the sun. Tangled shadows waltzed in the diminishing light. The temperature; not too hot, not too cold. The Surge and I - armed with my camera - were navigating the streets of downtown Manhattan, headed to the South Street Seaport to see (and more importantly hear!) the New York Dolls (view photos here). On our way, we encountered a New York Doll of our own who treated us to a delicious display.

Just another day in the city, folks.

There is NOTHING better than a fat man in spandex sporting a fanny pack...how was the show? Not the fanny man show, but the New York Dolls?

The Bruce Springsteen/Marah thing was very cool but I am so glad you know how to include video on your site after watching this. It's the middle of the night I'm up late and checked out your site and this video had me laughing almost out loud. I miss New York! Thanks for sharing that (and having the foresight to film it in the first place). Hope the show was fun.

I am laughing my ass off! I love how into watching herself dance she is. And the shoes. The sandles with socks and heels. Priceless.

The next time you comment on how fat/unattractive/whatever awful thing you perceive yourself to be, I am going to take the first Acela up there (to expedite the trip), to kick your ass.

I certainly hope you tipped her well. She was really working that fanny pack.

She was tipped well. I think the dance was especially for me and The Surge..

I just wanna know why Dave was sleeping on the boardwalk?

Oh, God, Heather B, I know! Are there any photos of Monica where she does not look beautiful? Seriously. I really refrain from commenting on that, because it's just so obvious and ever-present, one incredible picture after another. I would kill for one picture of me like that.

But you know, a 1,000 people a day can tell you that you're beautiful, and it doesn't mean a damn thing. Does any stunning woman think she's stunning? And why not? It's so unfair, we should be able to appreciate our stunningness if we have it. The whole self-image, self confidence thing, there's got to be a better way. Like a pill we can all take so we can shut up about our insecurities and just enjoy. Oh wait, we've had this conversation before. My bad! :-)

Monica, the pictures are great.

Too funny! The best is when her pooch moves independently from her chest and she watches it, so proudly. All the while, people are walking by, barely giving her a second glance. This is exactly how I picture New York City.

So the show was???
