My Temp House

You cannot imagine the position I am in…

Well – the bed is in the middle of Henry’s living room – I was staying in a little room behind his office (adjacent to his apt – connected) but now they are renovating the office so the office moved into the room I was staying in… And the bed came into his living room…

Just sooo thankfull to him for having let me stay here…

It gets better – I am on the bed – my laptop on the floor – wireless keyboard and mouse with me on the bed and me in my undies typing away – oh yes – have the Apple “zoom” feature on so that I can see a little better what I am typing… Eheheeh…

As far as the aparment hunting goes, I have decided that I will stop the hunting and just go to Stuyvesant Town… It is not the “cool” place to be in and not the fancy neighborhood but I think it is the best deal… It is simply so much bigger than everything else I saw… Got a good one today via email but then there is the brokers fee… One month worth of rent just evaporated… I can furnish the place with that money 😉

The Switch

So many options – so many widgets for my new Mac – so many tools

Ran away from using MySpace as my bloggin tool – even though my Helio phone is integrated with it…

Figured the Blogger Widget would be more usefull… or maybe not… this just seemed like a cleaner, faster, and more customizable blogging tool.

This was my old blog (from which I copied the entries into this one 😉

My Space – Lucas Longo

Thats it for now!

Second Entry

Second entry… this might actaully become adictive!!

Zipped around on my rollerblades with great music blasting through my iPod while systematically going through the list of potential apartments for rent.

Started off at Graduate Housing who told me that there were no more subsidised apartments available… nothing more than expected.

Went to Styuvesant Town to check it out… inside the “complex” it feels like you are not in the city… reminded me that I wanted to be in the middle of it all to counterbalance the time when I lived on dead-by-night Wall St 10 years ago.

But also realised that it would be a big plus to have a nice quite area that I could call “home” in the middle of this bubbling city… also at a different stage of my life where you start caring more for the smaller details, the fine pleasures – as opposed to the hustle and bustle of the frenetic street life the Village can offer.

Not too close to NYU but could use the walk – no 1 bedrooms available – for now – but good excuse to get Otto here 😉

Funny how when I first saw it I figured I would end up there… same way that happened with the Wall St apt – something similar about them – the one owner/big complex/leasing/no broker style.

And I actually saw it while being shown the very first apartment I looked at here… it all happens for a reason I guess…

It is all connected…

An interesting topic to explore artistically/technically at ITP – how this small world effect/coincidences/”fate”/subliminal messages affect our daily lives and how we actually look at art and technology differently depending on what we have experienced in the past few moments…

Ok – that`s it for now…

Getting sleppy 😉
