Here's the 4th short film in the Terminal Bar series. It covers the last few years I worked at the Terminal Bar, after the newsstand on the corner was removed, I was able to get an unobstructed view of the garbage can on the corner of 41st and 8th ave. This new vista allowed me to shoot the outside action while standing inside behind the bar.

When my son was at a diving meet somewhere in Virginia, I strolled outside the pool facility which was surrounded by nature and I saw this old, abandoned car. I liked how nature was slowly taking over. Six years later I unearthed the photo to make this commentary. Although it refers to the body of the car, it also refers to one's own body, which shouldn't be left unchecked.

Two years after I painted my first 69, I revisited the design using the paint-over-paint method, using only two colors, where the base coat of the blue field is red and the base coat of the red field is blue. The significance of 69 refers to the sexual act, and not the fact that I got married in '69, Yin and Yang, or a certain zodiac symbol.

As long as it's not on my roof, the rapid fire sounds of a woodpecker at work is pretty cool. What's cooler is how nature designed them to use their heads as hammers while making adaptations to prevent brain damage.

Recessions are part of a cyclical conspiracy run by Wall Street. The fix has always been in.

This is one of my earlier attempts at decoupage and paint. I think I was honing my skills because I had just produced (or was about to produce) my older son Cary's bar mitzvah sign-in board which was basically circular photos pasted around the outside of a mat board. This picture is that of my younger son Stefan who just lost his front tooth.

This photograph came into the photo lab where I used to work and I made a copy for myself. I'm not sure what year this was, but it was somewhere between his transition from the original Michael Jackson to the pale alien thing he became.
