Concerning Antiquity

Some people don't text message.

I don't understand why. My eight-year-old niece texts.

She also has her own gmail and facebook accounts.

True.

Sometimes you have to let go of the past in order to embrace the present and the future.

For instance, my new tenant in the East Village complained to me that the painter did not paint the ceiling before she moved in......with her white couch and white furniture.

I went there, and looked at it... it was fine. There was not a mark nor a scratch nor anything on the ceiling. It didn't need to be painted.

Whatever.

That's the East Village today. That's who's moving in - a tenant who complains that the ceiling is not painted.

Her checks clear.

The East Village is not what it was. Debbie Harry is not at CBGB's, which is no longer a bar. The World is some church or something. You cannot get a blow job in the back room of the Cock.

Well, maybe you still can.

Things change, like it or not. The East Village changed, and it's no longer a home for artists or eccentrics.

Ask Patti Smith, who is now telling young artists to move to Poughkeepsie.

Although I think Hudson, right now, is pretty fucking awesome.

People change, too. It's like...guess what, dude? You're not a twink anymore...sorry.

Yeah, I know that at one point, older guys at the Townhouse paid for your lily white hairless ass, but now, they don't pay.


Use that ass when you got it.
Put that ass money in the bank and buy some real estate.

Or, a nice fixed-rate CD. Which, does not stand for 'Cross-Dresser'....this time.

When guys show up at your door, after looking at your ManHunt profile pics of ten or fifteen years ago, they turn around and leave....and they should.

Embrace the present, and who you are now, and what you're doing NOW and run with it. The past, is.......well, the past.

Anyway, what was my point?

Oh yeah.....there's this discussion called 'Concerning Antiquity' in a couple of weeks. I guess it's all about the past. Get all the information above.

:)


Some parts of Antiquity were not that bad....
