i have a dead mouse on my deskk
  9:13am bw:

leonard cohen tickets go on sale at 10.. did anyone see the last madison sq show?
  9:17am Joe Steele:

I'd unplug the mouse and plug it in again.

or get the Lysol, whatever the situation may be.
  9:20am bw:

poor mouse...
  9:21am annie:

i tried it three times... time to get a new mouse, i guess. even took it apart and put it back together. lots going on here, though to distract me. the road washed out last night and there are people troubling me here and there; an eventful morning..
  9:22am Alice:

  9:24am bw:

no one out there saw the last cohen tour? the tickets to the surely last nyc show go on sale at 10..
  9:27am annie:

lenny!! if you are going to play more..... joan of arc is good.. i'd love to see him... but alas.... too far away am i!!
  9:31am BSI:

Mephisto has claimed another victim!
  9:36am PMD:

Mornin' all! back from the land of the lost, and now back at my desk. Gotta catch up on work, so not sure how much commenting there will be.
  9:38am Joe Steele:

Feng Shui and such I suppose.
  9:40am bw:

  9:42am Joe Steele:

I actually didn't even know it was finished.
  9:44am bw:

phase 1 is done.. opened end of may... but it was a really quiet opening
  9:48am Sigmund Fraud:

That Mephisto is some greedy penis.
  9:48am detroitdave:

Well Ben, after reading what was done, it sounds like they shifted some things around to make more lawn space available. Did they not do a good job of landscaping it or moving monuments around sorta f&#% you up a little?
  9:49am bw:

it looks like a mall!! and reallly reallly feels like one
  9:50am detroitdave:

Ha ha.........well.......I didnt expect they could f&^%* it up THAT bad. I guess I need to see before and after shots.
  9:52am McGuyver:

"One man trouble shooter", pfft.
  9:58am detroitdave:

Hey, if Sub Saunders can "park" the sub and get out and run across the ocean floor.....why the sub?

You can park your car along the highway and get out and run too, but you're not.

  10:35am Parq:

Hi PDM, Annie, gang. I'm also back from the glories of the open road. Incidentally, I walked through the new Wash Sq recently and found it a lot less changed than I thought it would be.

  10:57am Parq:

Ben, I totally get your point about the symmetry, and I wouldn't go so far as to call myself a "fan" of it, but I dunno, it just doesn't bug me the way it clearly does you. Now Film Forum, that you can call me a fan of!
