hello, kitties!



here is a random scan of a postcard i got at the hello kitty store in times square. what??! you did not know there was a hello kitty store in times square? ah, bien sur! also an m&m's store...and an mtv store...and a toys-r-us with a full-sized ferris wheel inside the store. nope, i'm not kidding.

i wonder if some new yorkers prefer the *old* times square, with its vast array of adult theaters, massage parlors, and the many colorful characters who frequented them? disney was one of the first companies to open a "straight" business nearby, perhaps 15 years ago. i've always imagined two of the "old school" business proprietors sitting in a seedy bar, hearing about their new neighbors for the first time. "oh geez," one must've said to the other, "there goes the neighborhood." "yeah," the other would've agreed, "there's no goin' back once THAT ELEMENT starts takin' over!" :)
