February 6th, 2015


The idea:
We should build an entirely new bus-only (or maybe light rail) route to LaGuardia (LGA). (more…)

How Jeffrey Gamblero/Vanchiro – aka Korn – did NOT kill himself.

December 15th, 2014


This morning, news broke online that Jeffrey "Gamblero" Vanchiro, (know to many as a Brooklyn Nets 'superfan' and from his graffiti name: Korn, of Smart Crew) passed away as a result from injuries sustained when he jumped out of a second floor window. The sudden manner in which he died has lead to a lot of confusion by many who either knew him directly or respected his art & style. How did he die? Why would he apparently kill himself?

Facebook demands legal ID, shuts down main LTV account.

October 16th, 2014


Earlier this week, I was notified that the main LTV presence on Facebook, an account at this url: https://www.facebook.com/control.ltv (don't bother copy and pasting, it now leading to a fraudulent "broken link" page) was taken down. They claimed the name in use was not a 'real name'. (The name at the time read 'Conntrol LTV Abbadon'). So I said to myself, fine. Who cares. When I logged in, it prompted me to add my 'real name'. I did just that (forgetting to add a middle initial, which it wouldn't let me add a minute later). It let me back in, and I posted a (justified) pissed off post about it. A few hours later, the account was again shut down. Only this time, Facebook was demanding that I send them an actual copy of government identification. I'm not kidding. See the attached screen grabs.

The Brooklyn Bridge white flags & exploring.

July 25th, 2014


Earlier this week, someone changed the American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge - replacing them with white flags of surrender. I don't care who did it or why. I think it is awesome that they did. It's a fun prank that harmed absolutely no one and is certainly not worth all the slow-news-week press it has been getting.

10 years ago today we took on the MTA & NYPD and won.

June 5th, 2014



In the late spring of 2004, the NYC MTA considered banning all photography in and around the subway system. They did so at the request of the NYPD, who grew afraid that terrorists were documenting the subway system to plan future terror attacks.

We found this notion to be paranoid and dangerous - an infringement upon our constitutional rights. Criminalizing photography? No way. We immediately decided to hold a protest.
