Photos and Words of Patrick Calder

I live in Washington, DC with 1 cat named Pixel, 6 cameras, 3 computers, 158 movies, 286 books, and 1 bowling pin. I own the Design Foundry and pretend to be a graphic designer by day.

T-Mobile / October 12, 2012 / Comment on this

Walked into TMobile location to ask for a small change on my account. Given recent miserable experiences with them, I assumed the worst, and planned on heading to Verizon afterward to switch providers. I walked out of there with more services than I started with, paying less than I started with. No shilling for TMobile — just saying that Stephanie B at 15th&H was awesome.

Welcome to another day in the D.O.C.
Nine people dead, 12 serious injuries, 50 minor, on a subway crash. Two people shot overnight.
Beautiful weather. Bright, deep blue skies.
Movie preview last night at E Street, whose biggest laugh involved an Angel dying.
Krispy Kreme is calling my name. I surely must go.

Women in outfits that consist primarily of black leather cargo nets. Men in corsets and dog collars. A lady next to me — with blue and white bobbed hair — wearing a corset over top of a tiny, ripped t-shirt, and black fishnet stockings.
Discussions about internet access in churches, and usability in websites. Global warming came up as a discussion in there somewhere.
And rum. And coke. And more rum. And more coke. and… well… now Doritos and cold pizza.

KoolAid / March 23, 2009 / Comment on this

Walked past the Chinatown subway exit on my way to a store on the same block. Went in, found what I wanted right away. I paid and left. Walked back towards the metro.
People were crowded around. But there was a guy playing Caribbean music, so i just figured he was popular. Saw bright red KoolAid spilled on the ground near the exit. Then I noticed the guy slouched in the corner, with his hands over the side of his face. And there’s a cop standing over him.
And maybe that wasn’t KoolAid. And judging from the spray, and the fact he was holding the side of his face, I’m guessing that wasn’t a bloody nose. Must have gotten slashed.
And the steel drummer played on.
