"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

New York Minute


Nice story by Melena Ryzik on Jim Jarmusch in the Times today.

I like this:

“What I loved when I came here from Ohio is that I realized, you could be the weirdest person in the world and then walk around, and in three blocks, you’re going to see someone way weirder than you,” he said.

Though he misses the wildness of those days (in the SoHo of the late ’70s, “I looked out my window at about 3:30 a.m., and I saw a man walking a llama down Prince Street”), “I’m not nostalgic,” he said. “Because New York’s only about change and conning everybody out of whatever they have. That’s just what New York is.”

Just had to figure out what this photo was. Good ol' Google. Pub shot for the film Mystery Train, with Joe Strummer (pictured here) and also with Steve Buscemi and Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Sounds worth seeing.
