Notes written on the back page of Baudelaire's The Painter of Modern Life And Other Essays, L Train, 1:08PM

...the breeding classes recognize each other by their acceptable shoe wear and mid-range bags.
They sniff each other out for deformities in character and intention.

The city is like the pattern of red and white speckles on the floor--a swarming static, what my father called 'interference' as he adjusted the rabbit ears on top of the set.

B-boy, jailbait, grad student, busboy, mother, yuppy, rasta, convict...everyone's wearing the same "dirty" style jeans.
