So 5 days in Munich, 5 days in Berlin, and then 3 days in NYC was the plan. I ended up staying 10 days. The weather was good, 8 Ball Zine Fair was coming up, and this is the first time Dave didn’t have tons of room mates and animals around.
I swear to GOD when we got home we saw a rat cruising the block with a slice of pizza in his mouth. I went for the photo and chased him maybe 20 ft before he bailed the pizza and jumped into this yard.
It was cool being able to catch up on the NBA finals. We couldn’t get it cracking in Germany.
Dave’s deck. So chill.
I was stressed about making the decision to stay an extra week or so. I couldn’t just change the ticket, I had to buy a whole new one way and it was pretty much all my money. Dave said to pull a card. This was it. I forgot what it meant.
Dave had access to a car for a day, we went to Ikea so he could buy a bed. Dude in the back is psyched too.
This is the worst pizza I have ever seen and eaten.
This is Anita visiting from Australia. She’s rad. We sent this photo to Andrea.
Jimmie and Vic. The first time I moved to SF, I lived with these guys.
This dude was sipping and riding one footed for a sec, I missed the shot.
This dog has red socks on all his paws.
Julia chilling, dude in back chilling.
This pizza place really was the best.
Draymond was balling out of control in the first half. Bummer they lost. Epic season though.
This is Gabe at Desert Island. You can find our zines there. He has been buying our stuff for years. He’s rad.
If you haven’t seen “Spy” yet, watch it asap. It’s hilarious.
This dog had cool wheels.
I was ready to spend $100 here but these guys were dicks and ignoring me so I bailed.
90% of the time I feel like my phone can shoot anything and it’s all I need. But that 10% of the time when I need it to freeze action or nail something and it misses, man it bums me out so much. I know I need to get a new camera and just run a camera around my neck like a normal photographer. Gear is expensive though, and fragile, and will be outdated in a year. My first choice is about $1200 and my second choice is $800.
We went to Rockaway Beach. I told Sofia to just meet us there, but when we got off to transfer, it turned out she was already on the same train as us.
My new phone is water proof. So of course I was selfie-ing…
…until this wave took me out. My hat, my phone, and my glasses went flying. Somehow I caught my hat and phone super quick, handed them to Kappy and then went back for the glasses. Searched for a couple hours. Nothing.
Still had fun though. Dave works at Rippers.
The clouds are so different here.
This is huge for New York. I never hated the Knicks, I will watch some of their games but now I am for sure watching most of them probs.
8 Ball HQ.
Got way into this racing game. I bought the Lamborghini Countach.
This dude makes delicious pizza.
Look at it.
8 Ball Zine Fair. But first the Pride Parade was happening a block away.
My phone missed this shot. Sure not all cameras are gonna get everything, but some cameras are def more responsive and quicker to focus. Camera phones are on the low end of this action scale. And it’s not cool, 10% of the time.
Empire State Building. RIP King Kong.
Nick and Andreas.
Troy made a virtual reality zine.
Kappy and Devin.
Cooper and Yoma.
Julia and Kenny.
Jill Freedman and Lele.
One last meal. The collar of a Blue Fish.
And one last stroll through the park. See you again in Sept NYC.
