Christmas in Harlem

| No Comments


Lenox Ave to St. Nick, never seen St. Nick,

just niggas selling the same nicks, the same bricks. 

Same hustlers running up to Broadway,

that's where the snow's at, taste it. Foreplay. 

No turkey or greens, just Jimbo's

Christmas lights and project windows. 

Shouts to the coldest on my barometer;

Berkman, Shapiro, Kalina. Chanukah (my lawyers).


Via G.O.O.D. Fridays

World Lens for iPhone goes all Star Trek (almost)

A new free app for the iPhone and iPod touch brings instant non-universal translation to English speakers struggling to read Spanish and vice versa. World Lens instantly translates Spanish/English text using the iDevice's camera and re-projects the text on screen as translated. 

This could be useful to English speakers seeking to venture into restaurants in northern Manhattan with Spanish only menus. It could also help Spanish-only speakers read practically everything, everywhere, in the United States. 

The app can be downloaded on the iTunes App Store
