Alice's Restaurant Anti-Massacre Movement ... Here it comes ...

2010-03-21-IMG_6857So, well, first off, this isn't Alice's Restaurant in the picture. No, of course it's Tom's, as in the Suzanne Vega song. And a fine NYC restaurant it is with an iconic wrap around sign.

But what I really wanted to talk about is the draft, whoops, no, yes, that's Alice's.

But what I really wanted to talk about was 27 8x10 glossy photos. Yes, that could be my favorite part of the song we're talking about. Yes indeed, it's those 27 photos that I regularly reference in conversation whenever the subject of evidence some comes up, and yes my friends, if only enough of you reference those 27 photographs, well, you know, well it might just become a movement. So, next time it comes around, I want you to all join in and reference those 27 8x10 color glossy photos what with the arrows and ... well, you know the story, it's Thanksgiving. Watch where you put your trash and keep an eye out for Officer Obie. And here it comes ... "You can get anything you want ..."

"... and they took twenty seven eight-by-ten color glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of the approach, the getaway, the northwest corner the southwest corner and that's not to mention the aerial photography." - Arlo Guthrie, "Alice's Restaurant"
