well that’s the funny thing, where you see boxing gear . . .
JOSH HARRIS, isn’t too far off !!
after QUIET got shut sown – he transformed the place into a hard-core artist boxing club. more like an unsupervised – FIGHT CLUB – for sure.
is that a BROOKLYN SKYLINE . . . ?
and here’s the funny thing, where JEFF GOMPERTZ used to be – he who built the QUIET / WE LIVE IN PUBLIC pod hotel – now resides – Josh !!
the MONTECRISTO cigars . . .
yep. JOSH HARRIS at work – in his new HQ – the top story loft of GOMPERTZ, in our fair WILLIAMSBURG – BROOKLYN.
and where’s the Gomp ? he’s off in Thailand – living the cheap good life, making art – and not looking to come back – any time soon.
what’s Josh working on ? think it was his MIT MEDIA LAB proposal ?
yep. that’s Josh, alright.
and in the work studio . . . those are Josh’s paintings. yep Josh is painting – Singularities !! – he calls them.
yeah, I brought Kate along.
(yeah, I made that sweater.)
remember – I saw them – and write them up – this past summer – when JOSH rescued, seriously/ lost & found ALFREDO MARTINEZ . . . rescued from detention, yep secret incarceration – in China.
and he’s really going at – big time. serious.
and he’s painting. code. big time. hieroglyphs. writing on the wall.
and the new big event that day ?
he had just rescued a rescued cat from some lady who couldn’t handle him, off craigslist – even though she had pumped over $300 into cat meds !!
see him, peeking out – at the top left.
he’s a little skittish – but I bet he will calm down. Josh and pets – another story – for another day !!
his name is GREENBERG . . .
doesn’t every web guru, Internet visionary and ex-dot.com C.E.O. now turned painter in Brooklyn – need a cat named Greenberg ?
JOSH HARRIS – FASTER THAN THE SPEED – OF LIGHT.
