Podcasts


Out of all the podcasts on itunes one of the most awesome shows is: "Keith and the Girl"


this podcast is beyond entertaining.....

The show is hosted by a comedian Keith Malley and his girlfriend of 6 years a singer Chemda Khalili and they live in Queens, New York.

The show is usually an hour long and features different guests/friends of the couple (this usually adds tons of fun and random opinions to the show)

Keith and Chemda discuss their lives, what's going on in the world and basically just talk shit and I love it!!

Check out this clip from their video podcast from youtube:

The Bum Files - #002 - (A True Story)


One Cold Saturday Morning....
I head to Utica Avenue train station (in Brooklyn).....
I walk down the stairs....
approach the platform....
The first thing I see....
a bum....
We all see bums in New York but this bum was different....
This bum was laying on the floor fetal position....
This bum does not look alive.....
Everyone on the platform is a great distance from this bum.....
I walk....
I slow down....
keep my distance.....
look to see if he's breathing.....
shit! I can't tell.....
I keep walking....
no train is sight!
More people are doing the same exact thing.....walk ... slow down .... see if he 's alive.....
no one is successful.
An older woman stops in front of the bum,,,, she's analyzing him (seeing if he's alive)....
she slowly keeps walking away.....
I'm stunned by how many people are trying to see if this man is alive.
Mothers are pulling their children away ....
Still no A train in sight!
This bum has not rolled over...
or made any movements for the past 5 minutes...

THEN!!!
a pigeon flies down (from god knows where)
and lands on the bum......
The pigeon does not stay on the bum.....
The simple bird is looking for food.....
At this point I'm giggling and horrified at the same time....
No one knows if this bum is alive!!!!
Finally,,,,,
The A train arrives....
I turn and walk towards the train....and before the doors open....
I look back....
to see the bum....
to see if he's still lying there....
........
The bum is GONE!!
I'm shocked and now questioning my eyes
...and the photos I've taken with my blackberry.
I get on the train...
grab a seat....
look up.....
the bum is there....
excusing himself and asking for some change.....

The Bum Files - #001

Welcome to "Tameeka Time"

Ok....Some of you blog lovers may not know this but in New York City there is huge homeless community.

Too many people ignore this problem and we all should be aware that these bums are aggressive mean old men and women - they harass a lot of people for no reason.

I'm not being insensitive.

But, for some strange reason I get harassed by bums all of the time....

So in my defense...I blog about it ("The Bum Files")

I would never fight/argue with a drunken, piss smelling, old man or lady but I will snap a few photos of them with Blackberry :)

Here are my (3) latest photos from The Bum Files:


(I call this collection "Nap Time")

File Name: Nap Time

Location: Nostrand Avenue (Brooklyn)

Time: 10pm'ish

Bum Mood: Sleepy

*More to come blog readers!

muahz!
