BAD BOYS, BAD BOYS, WHAT YOU GONNA DO?

I was still swooning over Ace from American Idol when I heard Chief Troy from JCPD announcing their new campaign on the local news.

Residents of JC are encouraged to call (201) 547-JAIL to report information leading to the arrest of JCPD's most wanted. I just wish they'd post photos and info of these people on their site.

In other news, Time Bandit saw a couple of

Guardian Angels on the PATH train yesterday.

Between the men and women in blue and the angels in red, I fully expect crime to go down. Here's to hoping!

JC + SNOW

I haven't had a chance to transfer my image files from my SD card to my laptop, but fortunately there is no shortage of beautiful photos of JC with snow on the web:

PINK PIMPDADDY

In my ongoing pursuit to showcase the ghetto fabulousness of this city, I present to you ...

THE PINK PIMPDADDY!



OK, so I totally missed the shot [I didn't get my camphone out in time, so I snapped the photo after he passed me], but I'm sure you can capture the essence of the Pink Pimpdaddy's ghetto fabulousness.

And they say JC's character has been ruined by yuppies. I think not!

CAP'N FORGOTTEN

Damn. I just realized I missed tonight's Captyn Zodiak show on public access. Must remember to watch it on Wednesday night.

FRIENDS OF THE LOEW'S

From the Friends of the Loew's website:

Important Message To Supporters and Patrons of Friends of the Loew’s:


Recently, the City has taken the position that the lease which was executed between it and Friends of the Loew’s on October 15, 2004, is not valid, that the ordinance which approved the lease should be rescinded, and that the property should be conveyed to the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.


It is our position that the lease was approved by the City Council, signed by the proper City officials, and is valid and binding on the parties. We have retained counsel to try to resolve the matter with the City, on a consensual basis if possible, or by litigation, if necessary. We will keep you informed on this site as the case develops.

The Misfits

This film weekend is presented in partnership with Greyhound Friends of New Jersey, Inc., an non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and finding homes for greyhounds that have been "retired" from racing. Without the efforts of GFNJ, all of these beautiful animals would have been destroyed. Half of the net proceeds of this film series will go to GFNJ.

Representatives of GFNJ will be on hand to give information and answer questions. A few dogs will be at the Theatre for the screenings - which will give patrons a chance to meet these wonderful, needy animals, and just maybe consider giving one a home.

For much more information about Greyhound Friends of New Jersey, Inc. and the organization's important work, visit http://www.greyhoundfriendsnj.org.

MY LENS

GeniusLesson's flickr photos of JC just gave me an idea. Starting today, I will post one image of this city a day week, as photographed by various residents and posted publicly on flickr.

MISS PHOTOGENIC

Genius Lessons claims that Jersey City is pretty in the morning and weird [yet photogenic] at night. Can't argue with him there.

My favorites from his series:
