GPS-Equipped Turtle Busts Public Grow Show

"When a box turtle equipped with a GPS tracking device stumbled into his little outdoor hydroponics lab, the park ranger followed, found his stash and grassed the amateur gardener up to The Law."
 

Guy screaming at 2am down on the corner.

SG: LET'S GO! LITTLE BITCH! YOU AND ME! FUCKING YOU AND ME!

Screaming Guy's female friend chimes in.

SGFF: WALK AWAY! FOR ME!

Some citizen jacks his window wide and joins the fray.

WC: WON'T YOU PEOPLE SHUT THE FUCK UP!

Screaming Guy ponders the request.

SG: FUCKING SHUT THE FUCK UP! FAGGOT! C'MON DOWN! WE'LL GO!

Another apartment dweller draws a bead on Screaming Guy and lobs something heavy off his balcony. But his aim's off.

CAR WINDSHIELD: BANG!

SGFF: YOU COULD HAVE FUCKING KILLED HIM!

EVERY RESIDENT FOR BLOCKS AROUND, IN UNISON: SHUT THE FUCK UP!

The Law arrives to wind things down.

VPD: [SIRENS, LIGHTS, BARKING POLICE DOG]

Back to sleep at 4am!

Your Browser: Great. I want to read this particular email, my Gmail login is: webmonkey@wired.com and my password is: monkeylove. My name is John Hanks Doe and my social security number is 123-45-6789.

Gmail Servers: Sure, here you go. I see you are leaving for vacation with the house unlocked this weekend. Say, is this your credit card information?

Guy packet sniffing your wi-fi from Starbucks: Cool!"

Why Photography Matters as Never Before

"[I]f you don't like what I've done or you believe I'm wrong, you had better be able to offer superior readings of the art in question. I'm happy to leave matters that way for the time being."
 
Please Take Me Along When You Slide On Down

"AP CHICAGO - Even after more than 30 years, fans are still falling for Steely Dan.

It happened Saturday night in Chicago, when a man trying to slide down a stairwell railing fell two floors during a Steely Dan concert. He was hospitalized in stable condition. His name has not been released.

Police were called to downtown's Chicago Theatre just after 11 p.m. and found the man on the basement floor. Police say he fell from the second floor and hit two other patrons before landing in the basement.

Steely Dan, founded in the early 70s, is in the midst of its 'Think Fast' tour."

Bicycle Cabled to a Post, 2008

An improvisation after a photograph, not mine, recently exhibited in Vancouver that some friends have heard me complain about at length.
