    Today I witnessed a young woman tonguing congealed yoghurt drink out of a plastic bottle. It was like watching a bear at a garbage dump, but less cute.

    Yesterday a teen was just screaming on the A all the way uptown. Randomly, like she had some sort of disease. When she got off on 125th she went to each doorway and flipped the bird to the remaining passengers. I seriously had thoughts of committing murder.

    Last week I attended this thing where about 100-150 people were going around from train to train ambushing carriages to play live Dixieland jazz. This was around 8pm so long after peak hour but whatever commuters were there seemed to enjoy themselves. Wouldn't know what the response would be like in NYC...

    ny subway riders get to enjoy any number of musical interludes - lots of gospel/doo-wop, mexican conjunto, solo saxaphonists, guitar-wielding folk singers, etc.

    Don't forget break dancing candy selling kids, Michael Jackson impersonators and your occasional accordion player.

    He moved to SF? I'll keep an eye out for a man wearing fabric tape on the inside of his collar.
