Not too long ago I learned the backstory of these little guys on Bedford Ave. The owner of the lot was an old time Williamsburg artist who refused to sell to big time developers offering millions. He would change the arrangement and their clothes every day. He's since passed and a friend has taken over the stuffed animal vignette. It's one tiny bit of (expensive) land serving as a reminder of Williamsburg's past as an artists' haven. #urbanlegend #urbanmyths #NYC #williamsburg #brooklyn

Would you spend an hour of your life watching people "yell at air" on tv? No? How 'bout "whispering in the dark" for an hour? Not interested? Thought so. But what if we told you they were ghosthunters... yelling at air and whispering in the dark? Aha. You and a million others. Isn't savvy tv marketing and promotions a wonderful thing? Be honest now, have you ever seen a REAL ghost on any of these ghosthunting reality tv shows? But it's fun to make believe isn't it? Don't be embarrassed, we all fall for it... time and time again. #paranormal #occult #documentary #realitytv #curiositykilledthecat #foolmeonce #demon #monster #ghoul #ghost #terror #spooky #scary #horrorclub #ilovehorror #souls #creepy #eerie #ghosthunting #ghosthunter #ghostbusters #ghoststory #trueghoststories #urbanmyths #haunted #horror #haunting #scarystories #horrorstories #horrorfans

Here's a new urban myth: A few days ago Hauke wanted to listen to the last Primal Scream album on YouTube, I haven't bought that one yet. The music started, I was reading on the couch. A few minutes into the record I started to wonder "Primal Scream? Which record is this?" "It's called Psychic Lemon." "Psychic Lemon? Primal Scream didn't make a record called Psychic Lemon. The last record is not called Psychic Lemon." "Must be the record before." "Hmm." I thought that this was an unusual name for a Primal Scream record and went on reading. The music was very good but I thought to myself "What did Gillespie do there, they used to be on another level..." Then a flute came in, I got confused and when the singing began I thought " What happened to Bobby's voice?" I finally stood up and looked up that YouTube video, it wasn't Primal Scream but the band @psychic_lemon My husband said he had typed in 'Primal Scream full album' and this came up- there was some contempt in my stare that was saying 'Loser!' So for about 15 minutes Primal Scream had made a record called Psychic Lemon 😁 The good thing about this story: This album is fantastic, a real discovery and on heavy rotation since then. It's the most interesting Kraut-Rock-Psych I have heard in a while, in my opinion much better than the current releases by Moon Duo and likes. I can highly recommend this if you're into psych, Amon Düül and- Primal Scream. #urbanmyths #psychiclemon #psych #kraut #krautrock #psychedelic #garage #cambridge #england #youtube @dronerockrecords

I was in the neighborhood this afternoon so I decided to drive through. One of the things I miss most about working here is it's beauty. #druidridgecemetery #blackaggie #cemetery #urbanlegend #graveyard #taphophile #taphophilia #oddities #urbanmyths

Because of its imposing architecture, Senate house building inspired a lot of urban myths. First, not so true one is that during the WWII, Hitler ordered the building not to be bombed, because he saw it as his future London headquarters. However, there is evidence that it was bombed nevertheless. Another myth, the one you could imagine as plausible is that it inspired Gorge Orwell when writing 1984. It appears in the movie as a Ministry of truth so who knows. Anyways, now it's a library. #senatehouse #senatehouselibrary #library #bloomsbury #london #uk #gb #architecture #urbanmyth #urbanmyths #history #orwell #orwellian #1984
