1st Avenue seagull makes it seem all the more summery



Enjoying a quiet morning on First Avenue at East Ninth Street...

Hey Gaga, the Hamptons are that way.

You can almost smell the stench of NYC summer in these photos. The overflowing trash, the filthy gum-stained sidewalks, the festering standing "water" due to lack of proper sewer drains, a primordial soup which should be carefully studied by scientists as freakish microbial life is probably evolving right there right now.

Summer in the city....

And we wonder why New York City has so many fucking rats!

When oh when are we gonna get a proper giant mutant rats in NYC movie?

Give me your starring cast - go!

Christopher Walken as the mad scientist who feeds rats, causing them to become huge.

Mark Ruffalo as the do-gooder scientist who is trying to save the city.

Julianna Margulies as Walken's partner in crime...

I'll stop here and wait for more suggestions... should be an EVG group effort!

Soundtrack? Depends. If set in the late 70s/early 80s, then all from the great bands of Bowery's Lost Parthenon...

I think, in the tradition of great 1950s horror movies, the movie will also need an older scientist with a beautiful daughter to be a love interest for Mark Ruffalo. So let's see. Older scientist - I'd go with Harvey Keitel. Beautiful daughter - Scarlett Johansson, NYC-born and raised. And for comic relief, Al Pacino as, well, pretty much anyone. (Please note, I love Al, no shade intended.)

Who else? Someone find a part for Vincent D'Onofrio, please!

D'Onofrio for mayor of NYC... (?)

I'm thinking maybe more of an homage to C.H.U.D. with a John Heard-Daniel Stern reunion…

Since its an East Village production lets cast some EV talent:

Helen Mirren as the Rat Queen (since shes good at playng Quens and already has the right accent)
David Schwimmer as himself, since he's scary enough already
Rosario Dawson as The Squatter
Luis Guzman as the leader of the Rat Patrol
Reverend Billy as The Reverend
Amanda Bynes as the damsel in distress
Jimmy Fallon as the comedian with 9 fingers (following his "mysterious accident" this week)
Jimmy "the rent is too damn high" McMillan as The Exterminator
And Ben Shaoul as the evil investor who belives he can turn te EV into an adventure park full of giant rats, who then proceed to eat him alive.
