Forgot to get some provisions earlier this afternoon and decided to venture out around 12:30 AM. What a shit show 2nd Avenue has become on weekend nights! Walked up to the 9th Street bodega from 5th Street. Hordes of screaming 20 somethings outside of Lit, which has become another scourge for the immediate neighborhood. And of course, as always, kids outside of The 13th Step were competing as to who could scream the loudest and dumbest. I understand fun, believe me, and am certainly not averse to hoisting a few and enjoying myself. But it would never occur to me to stand outside a pub to woo-hoo and holler at the top of my lungs.

I'm gonna miss that Radio Shack. They always had some esoteric converters / adapters and electronic parts. I wish the employees luck in finding other jobs.

Too bad they just completely renovated that Radio Shack last summer. What a waste.

remember…WAY back when it was called Tandy Radio Shack. You could get your hobby electronics and leather products under one roof.
