I Love… Whaaa?

by San Diego Shooter

I’m not an expert on the history of advertising, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that the I♥NY campaign is one of the most memorable and effective tourist campaigns ever created. Conceived in 1977, the imagery is still used today to promote the city and the state.

Despite […]

Environments Diverse

As I’ve noted before, I live in a “small” city, with a population of 65,000 people.

Make no mistake, “I ♥ WE”

Weimar’s a charming city with nice cafés, bars, restaurants, museums, and inner city architecture. It’s actually a small town where you get to know people, recognizing them by sight.

It’s possible to that […]

Special Travel

My trip back to Germany was a lot like my trip from Germany.

One of the flight attendants was the same and the person sitting next to me going to Berlin was the same man who sat next to me coming from Berlin. I thought I recognized his back as I followed him onto the […]

No Day Like Today.

Honestly, save for required transportation and meetings, I haven’t been north of 17th Street in New York City in at least a couple years.

Today’s been no different—after checking in , I headed to B-Cup where I worked and looked at cute guys, before going on a shopping expedition, returning to my hotel and deciding […]

All Aboard

This morning I left Hartford (yes, I was there) and boarded a train to New York City.

It’s nice to be in The City, even if for only one night, and an important meeting first thing tomorrow morning. Unfortunately I’m behind on a project and when I’m not in the meeting, I predict that I […]

Improv Berlin!

I’ve long been a fan of Improv Everywhere, a New York City based group of creative geniuses who do performance art in unlikely public spaces.

Unfortunately since I don’t live in New York City, I’ve been unable to participate in one of their events. Sometimes, however, they travel, and much to my great surprise and […]

From +1 (212)… to +90 (212)…

It’s hard for me to believe that just a week ago I was in New York City, having meetings, working, and standing in line for pizza. Now I’m in Istanbul, exploring history, eating great food, and seeing beautiful buildings.

I’d rather not start listing everything I’m doing because listing it would be boring, and any […]

NYC or Berlin

NYC: Wake up, take shower, go to coffee shop. Drink coffee, work online, eat breakfast.

Berlin: Wake up, take shower, go to coffee shop. Discover it opens at 10.

I have no idea what time B-Cup opens. By 10, I had already had a Café Latte with soy milk and breakfast. I’d even come and […]

Coney Island & Cyclones

For years I’ve read about family fun out at Coney Island, yet I’ve never made the trek out there.

That changed yesterday when I headed out to see the Brooklyn Cyclones’ season opener.

At the conclusion of my meeting yesterday, in which I think progress was made on some important issues, I got my hair […]

Antiseptic Sleeze: Gay New York Disappoints

Despite exhaustion I decided to check out another one of New York City’s famous gay bars, the View Bar, last night.

Monday is “Woof” night, where Daddies rule and Bud Light is only $2.

There were some positive reviews:

Max Scott’s bear party w/ DJs Joe X and Chauncey D cranking classics, plus porn star […]
