Latta’s New York Adventure 2000

Start spreading the news, I am leaving today… and by today, I mean last Monday, and  by leaving I mean coming back home to Atlanta.

I finally understand why so many folks so-boldly state that they ” ♥ New York” on their shoddy apparel, ‘cos it’s easy to fall  in love with the Big Apple. Sure, it wasn’t my first visit, but it was certainly the best.

What brought me to New York, you ask?  Well, it’s none of your business. Just kidding, I will tell you. I was in NY to see a man by the name of Pee-Wee. That’s right, I saw Pee-Wee on Broadway! Whadda show, man. What a show.  He’s still got it.  During one particularly sensitive scene, Pee-Wee slow dances with Chairy. I don’t need to tell you, there was nary a dry eye in the house.

Little did I know the city has a lot more to offer than Pee-Wee and a shoe shine ( I didn’t care for it). Here’s some other junk I saw and/or did.

UCB Theater.  Jim Gaffigan totally killed it.

Keith And The Girl Bingo. Thanks for not letting me win, guys.

Colored tights everywhere. Keep it up, ladies.

Flagrant disregards to trademarks and copyright holders.  Madagascar, Chicken Little, Mr. Incredible and King Kong together at last.  Bootlegs like this were pretty common place.

KidRobot, Brooklyn Industries, Fette Sau, Desert Island Comics and Barcade. New York has invented a lot of ways of extracting cash from the likes of me. Holy shit, it costs a lot to be there, but it’s only money. I’ll make more.

Goodbye, New York! I shant forget thee-

Oh, and let me give special thanks to my good friends Balz & Carol for putting us up and being such gracious hosts. I miss you a lot, already.

More crap coming soon, etc, etc.

About Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.
