The situation in Queens is getting a might chippy, as once again both schools and local trains are closed. The enforced isolation would be more tolerable if I wasn’t slated to skip town for a Wired assignment tomorrow. I fear greatly for the sanity of the Grand Empress, who shall be all alone here with rambunctious Microkhan Jr. and the needy Emprette. Please think good thoughts for her, and please check out the Super 8 footage above, from Dushanbe in 1982. I am fasciated by the graffiti-style mural that pops up around the 2:03 mark.
