found art

Here we have a piece of paper recovered from the recesses of the backpack of an East Village, NYC elementary school student.

Translation from first-grader-ese:

Starbucks: The Bean Instead.

I didn’t know first graders even DRANK coffee or were partners in the struggle against the corporatization of the East Village, but it’s good to have their support. (Backstory isĀ here.)

Excellent archaeological reconstruction!

This seems like a good spot to mention John Wesley Harding’s new song, “There’s a Starbucks (Where the Starbucks Used to Be)” — and no, I’m not kidding.

Oh, I know it! (Don’t like it as much as Taylor, the Latte Boy, but it’s a good one. I pride myself on my knowledge of songs about caffeine.)

Love Taylor the Latte Boy!
