Japanese Greasers

It is simply a beautiful day in lovely NYC.

Am reminiscing about gorgeous summer days in Tokyo when the Japanese Greasers come out of the woodwork to share their talent.

Gettin Buck Wild @ Eyebeam

Eyebeam, the wonderful organization I work for, has an Education department that teams up with New York City Public Middle & High Schools to teach students digital technologies and art in new and innovative ways.

ANYHOO, a student left behind his/her reading material:

My personal favorite line from this book: My pussy had been an entree several times before, but never an all you can eat buffet!!

Italian Wedding Dress

I think it's finally spring in NYC...it's going to be 80 degrees today! Yay!!!

While I seek out a great Spring in NYC photo op, hope you enjoy this photo taken a few years ago in Italy.

It's a rare instance that pastels make me happy.

I MAY HAVE TO START CARRYING A COW PROD WITH ME

FEW THINGS PISS ME OFF MORE THAN,
THE GUY ON THE SUBWAY WHO FORCEFULLY SPREADS HIS LEGS,
LEAVING A WIDE OPEN SPACE BETWEEN HIS LEGS,
OSTENSIBLY FOR HIS ENORMOUS PACKAGE AND
THEREBY ENCROACHING UPON OTHER PEOPLES' SPACES
...AND SURPRISE SURPRISE!!
IT'S MOSTLY WOMEN WHO HAVE TO SUFFER FOR THIS "I'M AN IDIOT GUY, DUH" BEHAVIOR.

PEACE AND LOVE TO EVERYONE

SEGWAY spotted in Chelsea!!

Last night, I spotted my very first SEGWAY!!! Whooeeeee!!

I couldn't help but stare, wishing I could try it but the guy was a CHATTY CATHY so never got a chance to ask.

I also wanted to ask, "If this huge 80 lb machine is SO awesome, WHY OH WHY, are you riding the subway, my friend???"

Radiator Kitty

I was given this photo and told it came from somewhere on the internet...anyone know of its origin or story?

Whereever it's from, it's still terribly terribly cute right?

What 2 Gorgeous Days Revealed in NYC

Moving onto our 3rd GORGEOUS day in NYC!!!
This is certainly worth rejoicing, since tomorrow, it's supposed to drop from the 80 degrees that it is today, to the 40s. :-(
Below are snapshots from the past 2 days.

2 nights ago, I hoped to blog from Yankee Stadium but should have known that I wasn't allowed to enter the stadium with a backpack.
Nevertheless, I managed to do what I do best, which is to capture the cheeziest moment in a given situation!...GONEZILLA!!!

Yay! Matsui with a 2 run homer!!

Yesterday in Chelsea, I encountered the phenomenon that fills me with glee:

Doggies who get tired on their walks and have lovely "companions" (PETA would be proud of me for using that term!) who gladly carry them.

Finally, last night, while visiting my cuz at Columbia, an unacceptable situation presented itself to me:

Is there any way we can put an end to this?

~what a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man~

The only man for me, is...THE MAN WHO EATS FISHHEAD!!

That's my boy!!
Can you even begin to imagine my PRIDE when a second after this was taken, he SWALLOWED the fishhead WHOLE??!!

Yay! Disgusting Realities! Yay!

Wouldn't it have been DIVINE if we had quickly, quietly and without killing civilians and soldiers....just ASSASSINATED Saddam?

I mean it!!

SHOCK and AWE!! Wow! What a great fucking name for a video game, ESPECIALLY NOW!!!

Quick, quick, REGISTER SHOCK and AWE as a trademark for our video game!!

Companies scramble to commercially exploit the war in Iraq

Crazy Cats hanging with Fish!!

I'm kind of obsessed with cats in close proximity to fish.

Taken a few years ago at Tsukigi Fish Market in Tokyo:

Genius At Work

I am certain, PURE BRILLIANCE inspired this invention.

HELP, MR. TOFU MAN, HELP!!

As I sit here, feeling sorry for myself because the weather has been sucking and all sources point to it continuing to suck, I also feel bad for my parents!!

Didn't realize andreaharner.com was capable of so much self-pitying and feeling bad, huh? Well, I am...

My parents live in the bustling city of Shanghai which is great except the fact that it's a part of CHINA means that they are at the mercy of the Chinese government that is BARELY mentioning...what was that life threatening disease going around, called? OH, RIGHT!! SARS!! So they have open plane tickets just in case and really hoping that "just in case" doesn't happen!

In the meantime, I'm thinking of this super cute and friendly Tofu Man I met in China one summer and hoping there's some voodoo shit in that tofu that'll squash this SARS madness:

Roman Biker on Espresso?

I've just been going, going, going, non-stop, like this guy below and therefore have no time for a more developed post.

Taken in Rome a few years ago:

NYC Spring Storm Watch 03

Ugh. We are in the midst of a spring storm watch here in NYC with expected snow accumulation of 4-8 inches...but then again you never know with the news...nevertheless it was nearly 70 degrees last week and now it's freezing and snowing...waaah.

This weather makes me long for summer to come and for summers gone by...here are 2 photos taken 3 or 4 years ago in Tokyo during a fun, fun, fun summer.

My brother having gotten off work and having had a few:

Andreaharner.com Apologizes

Thanks to a post by Jeremy, I stand corrected and blushing a bit.

Apologies to those who take my word as gospel, but The Phone Call bit below is not in fact true.

Depressed about The War & The Wackos

If you feel like getting more depressed about the war yet encouraged by humanity, check this out:

The Phone Call

As for poor Jessica Lynch...Message to her parents: Not so sure her pink casts will pull her out of shell shock, but nice attempt...crisis management coaching from Elizabeth Smart's family, perhaps?

Snoozin' in Rhodos

As I sleepblog this post, I feel soooo tired, from not having slept in...for weeks!

So, I take immense comfort in this photo of a fellow sleepy soul in Rhodos, Greece, and feel warm and fuzzy inside...and then I think to myself, HOT DAMN!..."Nice Legs, Pooch!"

*This photo is one of many photos taken several years back that I've scanned into my bloggable file. Discerning eyes will see how grainy the image is...please feel free to fund a new scanner :-)

PHILIP SEYMOUR SOY LUCK CLUB HOFFMAN

Was skipping! and whistling!, enjoying a lovely "Almost Spring in NY!" day and minding my own business!...

when I HAD TO STOP DEAD IN MY TRACKS...as I came across this name of a West Village Cafe which I have no doubt, Perry would label, "Gay in a Bad Way"

Actually, scratch that, I'm pretty sure he would call it "Gay in a Really Bad Way":

soyluckclub.jpg

Oh, the horror, I mean, PULEEEASE, people...even for a cheezball like me, this is TOO MUCH, I tell you!

I pulled myself together, turned my frown upside down and managed to get myself to the Guggenheim on time! (those who know me, can scrape their jaws off the floor!) for an advanced screening (yes, please indulge me as I'm being a pretentious New Yorker) of Owning Mahowney, starring the magnificent actor and fellow New Yorker, Philip Seymour Hoffman!

For the PSH fans out there, my emphatic thumbs up review of the movie and his acting, surely comes as no surprise.

I do however have one issue that's furrowing my brow:

IS IT WRONG OF ME TO BE BOTHERED BY HIS LONG NAME? I mean, can he shorten it without diminishing his integrity and identity? For Chrismas sakes, I can hardly repeat his name in a conversation without DANGEROUSLY DELAYING THE POINT OF THE STORY!

While capturing the shot below, I played the part of a starf&*@er (very well I might add!) with longing eyes and seductive smiles...for the sole purpose of getting him to look my way for photos, of course!
