The same creepy stock photography models stare out from a fenced over window on McGuinness Blvd in the street level of the residential building, The Oakland. It’s a nice building for a new condo, but their store fronts never found a business to take a chance at this location. It’s been years.

While in Sarasota, Florida, I wanted to see the world’s largest miniature circus, The Howard Bros. Circus Model at the Ringling Museum.
The model is a replica of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus from 1919 – 1938.
It was created over a period of more than 50-years by master model builder and philanthropist Howard Tibbals.
This guy handmade an insanely huge amount of little models of people, trains, homes, tents and everything else found near or in a circus from a century ago.
Howard is 75 years old and is still building these things.

From 54th Drive & 44th Street, Queens.
Streetwear advertising has finally gone the route that appeases its viewing audience. Here’s a taste of Front magazine‘s December 2011 issue. Yum. Why did this take so long to happen?
*Wednesdays at Brooklyn Imbecile is Not Safe For Work Day, so if you’re viewing this right now at your corporate America job, sorry, but you just had a personal file created by your IT’s facist security team, so I would avoid being late to work in the mornings from now on. Until we find a decent way to completely disintegrate this non-functional capitalist police state work week, y’all have a happy Hump Day!
