    so after wasting the last year doing nothing but painting and occasinally traveling, i decided to rejoin society, move to the city and get a job.
    so i packed up a small bag of clothes, grabbed my deck from the bottom of my closet and hopped on the train....
    a hellish 24 hours later (it would have taken about 10 by car) i stepped foot in philadelphia.
    i like philly alot. its not as fucked up as new york, but its not as retarded as jersey (no offense fr80, but your state is filled with morons). you can take a train to any major metropolitan area for about ten bucks... cant beat that. you can ride a bike without folks throwing shit at you (anyone who lives in the midwest in the suburbs should know what im talking about).

    Recently i got put onto the wonders of the "egg and cheese sandwhich" from the little carts all over the place. HOT DAMN. $1.50 and you got yourself a big oll hoagie bun stuffed with eggs and cheese. grab a beverage and a pretzel youve got a complete breakfast of champions for $2.80! cant beat that shit. oh, but you dont like fried food huh? well, dont even sweat it son! i got a big ass bowl of fresh fruit from a little chinese lady in another cart, for $2.50! she even threw a banana just "on the love" as they say.
    ive been skating home from work everyday, 2 miles, at midnight. shit is so nice, i had forgotten what it was like to be out at night without a bag full of paint and a case of severe paranoia.

    right after god invented women, he invented the city, so we could conveniently get food and clothing, all the while being able to watch beautiful women walking all over the place.

    seeking/thank you hesh,dusty&beard....team philly representa, HOLLA!

    I think Denver would be a nice city... but a little isolated.

    its probably not that philly itself is so inherently cool, but i had been staying in the suburbs where you couldnt walk anyplace. if you walked to the store it took half an hour. shit was wack.
    i guess i just like the chaos of the city. it somehow makes me relax. maybe its like stimulation overload or something... who knows... im just happy to be back in a city.

    Re: Re: I fucking love the city!!!

    you should have written:

    "pontiac grill (that shitty place that almost makes you not want to go to lorenzo & sons because all those stupid fucking punk rock kids just sit out there smelling like shit and unfortunitly being alive, keep checking my band's playing early august)

    that would have been a little more accurate. :)

    whos your band?

    I have a hard time believing that seeking could enter a gap store,
    let alone be excited by the 'super gap 9000':crazy:

    i dont really shop at the gap much, but its only because most their stuff doesnt fit me, not cause i dont like it.
    im all about solid colors, no logos, and simple designs. thats what the gap is built upon.
    i love the gap's ad's. their use of negative space is fucking incredible. im not at all anti gap... not any more so than i am anti-everything i mean.


    seeking/i dont mind being a clone oner

    I find that funny!

    I guess one of the perks of being an 'equal-oppurtunity-hater' is it's all getting hated on soon enough.


    Picture it now.... seeking walks into a gap with a misfits shirt... 6 months later... popgunwar walks out with 3 misfits shirts in the colour of the moment.
