Hello Brooklyn

The scene was much quieter for the second Fort Greene flea market this Sunday, even with an extensive and entertaining story on the front page of the Times style section. The lack of competition meant a somewhat righteous haul: Enter the Dragon and Barbarella soundtracks for $1 each (!?), plus The Cincinnati Kid, Buck Rogers, and a slow burning 1977 disco record on De-Lite called Made in U.S.A.

We met up with Chad and Christine, who bought a really cool skateboard deck, four wheels, and a sketchpad from Deadly Squire. Afterward we got brunch at Flatbush Farm. I had Toad in the Hole, bacon, a side of hashbrowns, and a pretty great cup of coffee by New York standards. Emily had a pancake with some little cooked fruits. A good and nourishing time was had by all.

I believe Habana Outpost opens again next weekend which means solar-powered Cuban sandwiches, corn on the cob, and Six Point will be on Sunday's post-flea agenda from here until the end of time as I currently know it.

I want to be there NOW!!!! It looks perfectly cold and dreary there. Here, I'm looking out the window and all I see is this goddamn sunlight. Solar-powered Cuban sandwiches rule. They just brought Primo beer back on draft, which is the old-school shitty but cool beer best consumed from a can with a peel off top.
