I work as a film location scout in New York City.
My day is basically spent combing the streets for interesting and unique locations for feature films. In my travels, I often stumble across some pretty incredible sights, most of which are ignored every day by thousands of New Yorkers in too much of a rush to pay attention.
As it happens, it's my job to pay attention, and I've started this blog to keep a record of what I see.

"I sometimes wonder if anyone still reads this stuff."
Here's an unique perspective for the self-styled brash, anarchist, punkrocker turned maturing, computer-geek
y, old git in all of us, or at least those of us who remember John Coltrane's version of My Favorite Things
. WrecklessEric dot com
contains the words of a man filled with faux passion
and finite jest, whose composed some good music and written some good lyrics to go with them. For those of you not that old, Wreckless Eric
wrote the song Whole Wide World
which is what Will Ferrell sings to Maggie Gyllenhaal in that movie
before she jumps his bones. It was just last year. You might have seen it. Eric's done some other things
too. I bring this to the blue cuz I happen to be fascinated by the wry, personable, unapologetic, self-referential, egotistical and occasionally self-loathing way the guy
writes in his website, and cuz I'm a sucker for the history of punk
, cuz I'm a geeky old git who used to fancy himself a shoegazing punk enthusiast. ...and cuz I'm bored.
