Playtime

Last Wednesday I went up Park Avenue with Ada Louise Huxtable’s guide in hand. All this is pure Jacques Tati. You could think you are inside Playtime, the movie, if it  weren’t for the Tibet and Falun Gong protesters, the police barricades, the absence of pedestrian crossing lights.
When I grow up I want to have dinner at the Four Seasons, Phillip Johnson’s answer to Tati’s “boogie restaurant” in the Seagram Building.

More pics after the jump.

  1. naturally like your web site however you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth on the other hand I’ll surely come again again.

  2. C’est ça, ils corrigent tous les points que Nokia à fait mieux qu’eux avec le 920 : écran, NFC, autonomie, coloris, capteur photo…

  6. It seems criminal that sub-prime borrowers get their mortgages paid off. They helped destroy real estate including my real estate investments. When do the responsible people get bailouts?

  9. „NEBUNUL e cel care afirma ca un zigot nu e o persoana ! zigotul NU MAI IMPORTA DIN EXTERIOR NICI UN BIT DE INFORMATIE CA SA AJUNGA O PERSOANA .singurul lucru pe care il importa e energia(hrana) de care are nevoie sa "construiasca" capodopera :pe om.”Pe principiul ăsta defect orice sămânță e un pom. Te las pe tine să-È›i dai seama de ce e stupid.

  10. Wow Tony… Heal up quick. I know it's hard to look at the time off, missing a season. But you'll be back. Keep thinking long term. Do what the therapists tell you, and you'll make it.From some one who's missed more than one season…Godspeed.

  11. Furrealz? That’s marvelously good to know.

  12. Im getting a new KTM around March for the enduro and hare scrambles because Ive ridden my cousins and I like how there rear tire ratchets the power out instead of full on wheel spin and you can control the rear tire better. Thats how I ended up with surgery because I was flying a hill and my YZ broke loose and then hooked up to well and I went over the bank into a tree pinning my leg and foot between the bike and the tree. I do like to compete but sometimes it gets the best of me

  14. We can get black-eyed peas in the freezer section of the supermarket. I am extremely fond of them. This does seem like a Spring-like dish, so I will keep it at hand until the weather warms.
