A visual review of Vincent's Pizza Park in Pittsburgh, Pa.
My friend Temisan needed a ride to his DJing gig at brillobox in Pittsburgh. I agreed, but I told him I was going to a New Urbanism met up along the way. Met a lot of great people including Lizandra (who explained New Urbanism,) Mark Dixon, Pittsburgh City Councilman Bill Pedudo, and many other community organizers.
DJs are community activists/organizers, too.
(Still practicing voiceovers, kind of crappy on this one. TIming off, etc..)

When I was in College I used to go to the little park next to school. Sometimes I would try to talk to this homeless man. (He is holding my business card in this picture.)
To communicate, sometimes I would sing a Japanese nursery rhyme my sister Gina taught me when I was a baby. Little did I know that was Yoshio Nakada's preferred method of communication.
Here is the Washington Post article.

(November 29, 2008) This is the 10 year reunion picture of six artists who lived, hung out, went to class, most of us worked as busboys at Tambellini's, and argued and fought together and with each other. From left to right: Oba Changa, Matt Carl, Jason Habrel, Luke Stock, me, and Eddie Graham.

I went to the dentist to get a filling. The filling fell out about 6 years ago. It was sensitive a couple years ago for about a week. I thought for sure I would need a root canal or some kind of orthodontic surgery by now. But, I was in and out in 33 minutes thanks to Tom's of Maine.
