What a rough night! Going to a Triptykon concert only to have to leave before they ever came on; instead sitting through an endless drone of 1349 songs (more amazing to watch the dummer than to listen to the actual songs). Late night taco bell at the Megabus bus stop. Waiting for the 12:50AM bus to finally come at 1:20AM. Sitting in a semi-comfortable bus for 3+ hrs, drinking ourselves to sleep with a flask of whiskey. Being dropped of at some street-corner in NYC and having a cab take us to our hotel. Checking in around 6AM.
Finally, we ventured out to Burger King, about half a block away (where they don’t give out free water?! WTF?! Never heard of that anywhere.) Our first solo pedestrian venture in New York City. The most exciting thing we saw was an abandoned printer. Too bad we couldn’t go crazy on it like in the movie Office Space.
buses, lights, printer, signs, street.

BACKSTORY: We went to NYC for the first time ever to attend the SubGenius devival thrown by the GFY Clench. Amazingly, bus tickets were only there, and back. For more pictures and audio of the devival, check out the official page at www.subgenius.com/bigfist/fun/devivals/NYC-2010/3_NYC_DEV… …

Victory stele of Aššur-ahhe-iddina (Assarhaddon or Esarhaddon) over Egypt
found at Sam’al (modern Zincirli Höyük, Gaziantep Province, Turkey) by a German Oriental Society expedition led by Felix von Luschan and Robert Koldewey 1888 to 1902
In 671 BC Esarhaddon went to war against Pharaoh Taharqa of Egypt. Part of his army stayed behind to deal with rebellions in Tyre, and perhaps Ashkelon. The remainder went south to Rapihu, then crossed the Sinai, a desert inhabited by dreadful and dangerous animals, and entered Egypt. In the summer he took Memphis, and Taharqa fled to Upper Egypt. Esarhaddon now called himself "king of Egypt, Patros and Kush", and returned with rich booty from the cities of the delta; he erected a victory stele at this time, showing the son of Taharqa in bondage, Prince Ushankhuru. Almost as soon as the king left, Egypt rebelled against Assyrian rule. (Wikipedia)
