laundramate, Rich Altomare, Washington Street, Hoboken, December 31st, 2010. „I like decorating the store for the holidays and always enjoy the positive feedback. people stop and smile at the lights and ornaments. The also hang card up, it is my own personal touch and my customers always look forward to it. I always look forward to hearing from my friends and family every year and seeing how much the children have grown. I started working with my father in high school and throughout college, and when I recieved my degree in business I continued lightening my fathers load. I try hard to keep it above water, but it is very difficult in todays economy. Fortunately I have great customer support, and the location is a greatasset. Being on the main strip I get many visitors every year.“ (Rich Altomare)

Michael Jackson, 218 Varet Street, Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York, “Artists want to recreate the world- as if they were mini gods. And they make a- a series- on going thinking about history, about life, about the things that happen in the world, things people believe to have happened? Why do we believe so? Well, because we believe in memory- based history, after all… because everything is already gone. Who can guarantee that what we imagine happened really happened? Who should we ask about this? This world– this supposition is– therefor, an illusion. The only true thing is memory. However memory is an invention. Deep down memory means—in cinema– in cinema, the camera can fix a moment in time, but that moment has passed. In the end, what it shows you is a ghost image of that moment. We are not sure anymore if that moment existed out of the film. Wether the film is a gurantee of the existence of that moment, I don’t know. About that. I know less and less. We live, after all, in permanent doubt. (in Lisbon Story, Directr Wim Wenders)
