i got the news

yes dear
how did you know
can’t you see our love will grow
— Walter Becker / Donald Fagen “I Got The News”

Just another bit of keychain toy digital camera fun. Snapped the unadulterated image on my three block walk from home to Whole Foods for my pre-work caffeine infusion.

I remain a huge fan of the newspaper, while I know full well that it’s a weakening medium. These two vending machines, I’ve noticed, haven’t been getting restocked very regularly of late. They were empty today. I suspect they’re likely turn up missing before long. Several of their kind have vanished recently, after all.

This duo begs to be anthropomorphized; I see in them a pair of sad sentinels, watching vigilantly for some sign — perhaps one of hope, but more likely one of demise.

  1. Fell asleep to iTunes a few nights ago, awoke to that very tune. Made a point of listening through the fade-out before calling it a night. What else could I do?
