Another close-up on a work currently on display at the #LifeOfCats show at @japansociety_nyc. This one shows a hell run by cats and is from 1891. Yes, that's a rat being crucified. Oh the felinity! This show ends in a week! Go see it now if you're a cat person in the #NYC area like me!

This is why we can't have nice things: Forbes (Steve or Staff, can't tell) uses such simplistic if/then (aka straw man) arguments rather than delving into a real, adult debate about the #TPP/#TransPacificPartnership.

So, @POTUS claims, in a Twitter AMA, that the reason the #TPP isn't public is bc it's still being negotiated. So, how about making a draft public then? Don't claim it's not secret until you at least do that. I mean, #sheesh. We're not #stupid.

SUBWAY FUN with thepete! The "Awesome Graffiti at 191st!" ep! #SubwayFun #NYC #subway #graffiti

Check it out!  It's a thrilling (OK, maybe that's a little strong) new episode of SUBWAY FUN with thepete!  In this episode I take you underground to a tunnel that got an amazing paint-job this past weekend.  Have a look!



Some of this video is #throughglass while some of it is #throughmyiPhone5s :)

Here is a slightly wobbly 14-second #timelapse/#hyperlapse video-walkthrough of the #191st1Train #tunnel. #WashingtonHeights #NYC #subway #NYClife full version coming soon to thepete.com & my YouTube.
