#43: 2011 Rockets Upgrade

In 2009, The Radio City Rockets got an upgrade of their wireless mic system.  Each dancer had a microphone installed on each tap shoe.  Most dancers wear 2 shoes at a time, and they usually have costume changes in each performance.  It adds up to around 300 microphones, using an 80 channel wireless receiver system.  That's a whole lot of technical complication.

Judging by this photo, the upgrade to their look this year seems far less complicated.

#42: Is it in the lips?

Not sure why, but I love these images.  There's something esthetically pleasing about those square boxes.  But somehow I don't think the square shape would translate well into sunglasses.

#41: "oohh, You Sexy M.F."

No i'm not censuring myself in my own blog.  I'm just making reference to Prince's song by that name.  And that's how he called the song in the album.   These photos make me sing the hook of that song out loud.

#40: And the winner is...!!?

Zooey Deschanel has been recently criticized for being too cute and adorable…  But everybody just loves her!   Even these defacers, who couldn't avoid the temptation to fill in those armpits and draw some fun stuff on her.  In the end, they caved in.  "We actually like her <3  :)", they wrote!!!   Yes Zooey, you really are THAT adorable!

#39: French Kissing

As a kid growing up, I reached a point where I started to get really curious about the mechanics of 'french kissing'.  I was too embarrassed to ask anyone about it.  Until one day I saw a drawing in a MAD Magazine comic strip that showed something similar to what this defacer did on this poster.  It was a big "Aha!" moment for me.  "I knew the tongue had something to do in all this!"

The rest, well... I figured it out on my own.

#37: In Your Eyes

"In your eyes, the light the heat
In your eyes, I am complete
In your eyes, I see the doorway to a thousand churches

In your eyes, the resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes, I see the light and the heat
in your eyes, oh I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light, the heat I see in your eyes"

One of my favorite love songs.

#36: "In death, his name is Robert Polson!"

I first took notice of "Moustache" guy in May of 2010 (post#25) when his mark suddenly seemed to appear everywhere and all at once. I have since admired his ubiquitousness all over the NYC subway system.  On June 26th 2011, it was reported that the police caught the guy.  That is always a bummer, but it's certainly an event that sends you into NYC stardom.  

"His name is Joseph Patrick Waldo."

I'm posting here a sample of his work, as well as one of my favorites, where he actually made a side view of his famous moustache.  This is a pretty unique piece  I think, at least not commonly found.

#34: Fill in the Blank

Cut a hole out and let it be filled with a piece of the old poster that's underneath.  I love these!  There's always some crazy randomness that just seems to perfectly fall in place.  Like life itself!  

Posts #30 and #17 have other samples of these random 'fill-ins' that turned out great.

#32 Natalie Portman

I hope Ms. Portman uses her newly earned and well deserved Oscar award to make some money to fix those teeth and that weirdly long nipple.  

But I still love you Natalie.  Your imperfections just add to my admiration of you.

#31 Tribute to Mamma Mia Girl.

This is a Tribute to one of most defaced faces in the NYC subway system.  It's the Mamma Mia girl, always smiling no matter what kind of fellacio, disfigurement, sharpie or blade will come on to her.  She stands strong as Lady Liberty does to the strongest winter storm.  

You see. she's actually part of the banner that's on top of every subway map, and nobody, I mean, nobody is taking her place.  Unless of course Mamma Mia ends up where 'Cats The Musical' did.
