The King and the NYC Condom

This was a quote from an article in the New York Post. It got me thinking, as I'll explain.

If you click on the words, it will bring you to the full article. However it is not necessary to read my story on the matter.

"We are experiencing an unprecedented economic crisis that has to be dealt with and dealt with rapidly," Obama said during the meeting.

Republicans say the $825 billion price tag is too big a burden for a nation crippled by debt and that it doesn't do enough tax-cutting to stimulate the economy.

"You know, I'm concerned about the size of the package. And I'm concerned about some of the spending that's in there, [about] . . . how you can spend hundreds of millions on contraceptives," House GOP Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) later said. "How does that stimulate the economy?"

I really don't know a lot about John Boner, I mean Boehner, but what he said sure was a pun intended. However, size of the package, spending millions on contraceptives, stimulate, and well c'mon Boner is his name ?? This was the perfect oppurtunity for me to write about New York City condoms, which are free if you know where to get them or just happen to be walking past a promotion for them where they hand them out. If you are in NYC and need a free condom, YES ITS FREE !! The only free things I can think of in NYC is The Staten Island Ferry......and NYC condoms. Here is their website if you need to be safe, unfortunately they don't fit The King, you know I have to get King size !!

This package was the original design for the infamous free NYC condom which they made the letters look like train signs for some flair. More flair !!!

So they went with this new design , and this is the condom you will get for free should you need them for your safety....or someone else.

They are distributed from Ansell Healthcare Products from Alabama, pretty sweet contract to sell millions of condoms to New York City. This place is horny !! However they are NOT made here and they EXPIRE !! So, I wonder how much money is wasted on the one's that expire and must be thrown away. This one expires in 2012.

and this one expires in I guess we just keep buying ahead

Now I'm curious why we have to import condoms from Malaysia imported by an American company from Alabama that sells them to NYC. I think we could create a few jobs making rubbers here and help our New York City economy.

If it says NYC condom, it should be from NYC !!

They also give free lubricant !! (insert Borat voice) HIGH FIVE !!!

A nice pile of FREE condoms AND lubricant. (insert Borat voice) VERY NICE !!!

Now they are organized, don't want to use an expired one.

OK, give me a K !!

K is for Keep your sexual drive up.

I is for I am The King.

N is for New York, the land of FREE condoms !!

G is for the Graveyard shift, which the King works....and plays when he isn't working.

O , well O is for the BIG "O" !!! C,mon were talking about condoms here !!!!!

F, well F is for ....I'll leave that to you , remember the theme is condoms. You can leave your thought in the comment section if you like !!

N is for Now is the winter of our discontent, until Obama turns it around.

Y is for You better wear a NYC condom or give some to people. They are a great stocking stuffer and may inspire someone you admire into trying them out.

H is for stay away from dirty "H"o's !!!

A is for A new beginning for this country.

C is for ...well I 'll leave this one up to you again considering the theme.

K , hey K is for King ...period !!

S is for Stay Safe !!

and what did it spell??

KING OF NEW YORK HACKS spelled out in condoms....thats a first !!!

Hope it made you smile !!

So in closing , I want American made condoms, nothing against Malaysia, I just want things produced here. I want more production here. If it says New York on it , I want it made in NY or in the United States, that would help our economy, and my tips. Well I think I've said enough for now on the matter, I'm not a scumbag , I'm just The King Of New York Hacks. Peace out people.

The King, Out with the old in with the New, and Barack is Irish !!

The KING going through the Holland tunnel along with some of his fellow yellow brothers in the city of hacks.

This is a gentleman from the finance sector who has some pretty good insight with his you tube updates. He calls himself THE MAN OF TRUTH. He's does frequent updates and called Bear Stearns going out of business a year before it occurred. So, check him out if you feel like it, some say he is a little over the top, I don't because he does make me think about what they try to not let us know about. . I like how he mentions about how President Obama has a lot of work to protect money that was in place for young children and may be absorbed under a new or different economic platform. KEEP ON ROCKIN' IN THE FREE WORLD MOT !!

I'm tired of seeing this guy all the time.

Well, I'll miss all the Bushisms he had, they were good for a laugh....but this was a very shady president in my opinion.He has certainly left a LOT for us to deal with.

A song composed and performed by Rob Bryanton, making us wonder about the secret societies that exist among the elitist here in America and abroad. Skull and Bones, The Bilderberg Group,Bohemian Grove, Illuminati..etc..Are these the organizations who keep us in fear ?? Fear of economic turmoil, terrorists, anthrax, or perhaps just fear itself. Something to ponder.

Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave.
...All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain.
--- Blade Runner

I don't like living in fear, and I hope the feeling that we are becoming slaves is reversed with this new administration.

General George Washington, on his knees, prays during the harsh winter of the Continental Army's December 1777 encampment in Valley Forge. This plaque was sculpted in 1904 and is on The Federal Building on Wall St. I'm sure George is still praying hard for the transition, and economy, AND the fate of American people to prosper again and have some peace, so we may enjoy what the constitution was written for and stop spending OUR money on bailing out people who don't really need bailing out, and give back to the people the freedoms and financial leniency that they deserve from the system that was created to help people, yet has begun to destroy our wallets, spirits, and hearts. I hope Presidebt Obama (yes Presidebt...Bush left him with plenty) can inject funds into the proper areas to create growth and begin a new era where America can flourish as we deserve it too.

However in the end, we must enjoy the simple things in life and appreciate what we have as human beings whether it be our family, our work, our volunteer work, our blogging,laughing, or the just random moments to do something silly like when it snows out and I act like a teenager who just got my license many years ago.

It has been revealed that Barack Obama's maternal great great great Grandfather arrived on a ship to America from Liverpool, England.

And, yes, his birthplace was listed as Ireland.

Falmouth Kearney arrived in New York on March 20, 1850, settled originally in Ohio, then Indiana. He had 8 children, one of whom is Obama's great great grandmother.

This is a version of the song which is quite funny. The actual video which is a clever cartoon showing Barack doing the Riverdance was created by the Corrigan Brothers. Here Is the link There's no one as Irish as Barack O'bama , good stuff.

So in closing once again, and now to a new President. President Barack Obama, whom I wish nothing but the best for and hope his "change" brings a happier nation to us all. I am not a politician,(yet)nor am I a reporter for fox news, I am a reporter for the people known as The King Of New York Hacks, who works the finances in the day and drives the city streets at night to bring you my humble opinions from the diverse group of people I interact with on a daily basis. Good luck to us us all in the coming term and I wish you all a great year ahead and change that brings our country to a better economic and peaceful existence. Peace out peeps, stay warm out there and should you be to cold to take the bus, just raise your hand in the air and perhaps we'll both get lucky and The King of New York Hacks will pick you up in his warm chariot...maybe even do a donut !!Worse case scenario, now that we know O'bama is Irish, at least we'll have a hell of a St.Patricks Day celebration !!!
Slainte everyone !! (Good Health!! in Gaelic)

KING OF NEW YORK HACKS gets foreign interviews !!!

This first interview by this charming young women delves into the challenges and pressures from the media that the King faces on a daily basis. It's a tough job, but heavy lies the crown.


This next video is of the King preparing for a future diving challenge that he personally received from Borat and the people of his nation. I am up for the challenge as you will see.


So in closing , perhaps I'm not the sexiest man alive(In her eyes), and maybe I won't try that particular dive again (My bad), but one thing I know is not only did Borat's people call me "KINGCREDIBLE !!!" because of my form and determination,but I still remain faithfully yours, The KING OF NEW YORK HACKS.
Hope you got a laugh peeps, Peace Out !!

The King, 2008, Musicians and Mike Alaska the Drummer !!

Thought I'd try this new video editing movie maker on the internet called Animoto. It lets you do a 30 second slideshow for free. Pretty cool. NYC has no lack of talent on the streets ever, and most everyday is like watching American Idol, except most of the time we just walk by and take the talent for granted.

Well,the King tries to stop and watch the world sometimes, and you know what? It's pretty damn good.. That's one of the supercool things about a New York minute.

Looking forward to bringing you the best of the New York City streets and my humble Wall St opinions in the upcoming year, thanks for reading.

I took pictures of these first two musicians before I knew my digital camera could videotape with sound. My bad. However you will get to hear MIke Alaska's drum solo!

This dude was playing some Bob Dylan, and doing a damn good job of it !

Yes, musical brother tip your hat, it was good , and the King will get it on video next time!!
What's that ?? YES I GAVE HIM A BUCK !!!

In front of a hip city mural , my man was cranking some Bob Marley as I headed toward my Taxi garage, and I reflected on his version of Redemption song during these turbulent times.
The King will NOT miss the video of this musician next time !!!....and YES I GAVE HIM A BUCK TOO !!!!!!!!!!

And as I crept closer to my garage and switched trains, I knew NOW how to use the video record on my camera which I couldn't figure out , but Mike Alaska tore it up in Times Square as the holidays approached and the King made it to his train.

Mikey doing the ole foot balance drum tempo !!!

Hell yeah!!! Mike does the flying stick routine too !!

Mike told me he also does a flaming drums show and showed me some Kevlar coated drumsticks that he uses in his routines !! I WILL get that on video eventually !!

However for now, check out this cool solo, NOT just plastic buckets either which was more unique than most street drummers!! Sorry no flames.

I am no musician, nor am I the conductor for the rhythm of the talent that roams the underground of New York City, maybe I will be one day, but until then I will settle for being The King Of New York Hacks. Peace, and good luck to all in the year ahead.

The King, The Cold, The Country, The Chorus of Humanity, and A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !!!!

Happy New Year everyone and I hope it was safe, sound and a good start to the year ahead of us. Last year was rough I believe on everyone and I have a video of this guy Uncle Jay who is very popular on you tube apparently ( 5 million views...still no KING though, lol ) who sums up the year extremely well. Thank you all for your comments on my previous post and I wish I could respond to them each individually, however I just don't have the time. I will visit all your sights eventually and comment on your ideas , opinions and life as soon as I can. I had that New York bug, flu thingy , and the holidays , but it did inspire me to create a blog about the comments that were left throughout the year and the many that were a blog in itself. That will be written in the near future though. So let us begin our ride through the city, start the year off right with a ride from none other than........

This picture was taken by one of the three biggest newspapers in the city who were going to do a story on me about how I had to work two jobs,one being The King of New york Hacks and the other that I work in finance on Wall St during the day and manage money. I told them they could use my moniker KING OF NEW YORK HACKS, or my first name Edward for the story , but I did not want to risk getting in trouble with my firm. Other papers have done this for me , but this was a no go. I do NOT sell anything to the public, I manage money for myself, which their editor could not comprehend and scratched the story. The girl who interviewed me was a doll and the photographer as well as we walked through pouring rain to get this shot, Taxi transportation and Wall St. all juxtaposed in one shot. That sums up who I am fiscally, so I thought since they were generous enough to send me the pic, I'd post it. Yeah that's a bit of a double chin, but its the holidays !!!! Give me a break !!!!!! Ahhhhh canoli's , pizza, candy, cake, know all our resolutions for this year NOT to eat.

I hope you celebrated with New York's newest and favorite tasty beverage that goes down as smoothly as eating a cactus !!!

Me? I prefer to start my shift off with my .99 cents coconut juice from the bodega !! Nice sugar rush and tropical with small pieces of coconut in it for those not in the know !! we begin this New Year of many new beginnings and world change , this may be one of the only existing photos of 7th Ave and 42nd St without a soul in sight!!! The heart of times square and NOBODY !!! the economy is still in turmoil by the nature of this picture. Although they did show up on New Years Eve LOL !!!


New Yorkers can make anything their playground in this crazy city , including a frozen fountain in front of luxury condo's !!

Yes the fountain is frozen.....It's cold baby !!!

So as the King traverses the streets and highways looking for a fare with the artful and keen eyesight of a cat, unbeknownst to him he would encounter his own comrades later that evening...

Two cats chilling in an East Village entrance where I dropped off a nice Asian woman, who told me the doorman owned the cats....maybe that's why that Salvation Army dude Eddie called me "The King of the CATS" in one of my prior videos !!! Karma , never know when it will show up !!

Now here is a New Year hint on how NOT to hail a cab in New York City. This nice woman is standing crosstown trying to hail a cab going in that direction , VERY HARD TO DO DURING RUSH HOUR !!!!!

She should just walk to one side of Park Ave , whichever way she were heading may it be uptown or downtown and she wouldn't have been left scratching her head.

So I looked up ahead and Mike Mussina hailed me down right off the pitchers mound in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium to take him into his retirement in Pennsylvania after his great career in New York !! Thanks Mike , glad the King could help !!

Now , this was and always is a disturbing thing to see when driving a taxi. Violence. I saw these two pummeling each other with others jumping in and it was not pretty, but The King slowed to a stop and started clicking photos and they all began to run and cover their faces as I screamed out my window "That's right Don;t F*** with the KING !!!" I didn't like seeing one kid get pummeled by four and a bunch of girls pulling each others hair and earrings out , which my pics only showed dark images , so I didn't post them. The point is , WE are at war and we don't need to be fighting each other on 57th st in Manhattan over more than likely something ridiculous. I pulled up to a cop as about 10 police cruisers started to pull up and the cop said for me to get the F*** out of here . I told him I had photos of who he was looking for and instead of taking a look , he just told me to pull over and wait. Taxi drivers can not wait, time is money, I waited 5 minutes and moved on. I would have gladly gave him my camera if he wanted , however guess his adrenaline was rushing and did not think clearly. I love the NYPD and think they do a great job except for ticketing my ass for the smallest infraction, but such is life in this naked city. Here is one of the better pics that show the melee in the middle of 57th st. I think a camera is more effective than a gun, I click my camera and they ran, if I had a gun, they would probably shoot back !!!

But , they didn't know that The King is WELL known in the city and as I pulled away I shouted " And don't let Jiggy Civic see you pullin' dat shit again suckers !!! " I think they got the point now they know "Jiggy Civic " is in the hood. By the way I used to drive a Civic CRX, my favorite car ever.

The Firemen are still supporting our troops on their trucks as we should in our minds and hearts to begin this year off right. They are our brother's and sisters who are there to protect us by the orders they are given. As I have said before , they are our Kings and Queens.

And I also know how this man feels, as he walks with his head down... for I long for the same thing... to have our families , friends and even the people we don't like back here in the U.S.A. , in peace. I had a painted jacket in high school but it was Iron Maiden. Painted jackets rock !!

Uncle Jay has SUNG an entire episode of 2008, and here's the reminder why! It's the year-end review of the news, and maybe it'll seem a little better with music. He's not my Uncle, but I believe he is the new Uncle Sam !! Uncle Jay , you rock brother !!!

Now here is a familiar sight , and for those who are naughty his year, this is what you will probably see !!! So you better not pout, you better not cry , you better not shout I'm telling you why , Santa Claus will blow your ass away !!! This is a pic of a friend of mine who is a Vietnam Vet, retired NYC Fireman, and is over in Iraq volunteering while his wife and five children await his safe passage home. The point ?? DON"T F*** WITH SANTA THIS YEAR !!!! GOT IT ??

Auld lang syne...which means The times gone past; the good old days....and fortunately for me , I found our man "One Man" playing it in front of Federal Hall under George Washington. Next time I see him , I will interview him for myself and my loyal following. Imagine these words being spoken by one solid friend to another.. and forget the song! Whoever wrote these simple lines surely expressed what many of us, all too often fail to say to those most important to us.

And there is a hand my trust friend, And give me a hand of yours, And we will take of a good drink/toast, For old long ago.

"Auld Lang Syne" is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song (Roud # 6294). It is well known in many English-speaking countries and is often sung to celebrate the start of the new year at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Day.

Confusion about the exact meaning of the words has led to a common addition of "the sake of" to the last line, despite this not being part of the traditional lyric.

Now , I am no Uncle Jay who creates these great educating entertaining videos, nor am I "One Man" who dedicates his days to playing his tunes on Wall St as the consumer and tourists walk by and really doesn't stop to listen, though I'm sure he hopes one day they do....(enter music for auld lang syne) "And there is a hand my trust friend, And give me a hand of yours, And we will take of a good drink/toast(Non-alcohol included), For old long ago."

It wasn't long ago when I started this blog and had NO direction it would take me to, but now having 100 followers who have taken my hand as we head into the treacherous waters ahead , I embrace your hand tightly and will not let go for I am no man who abandons , I AM THE KING OF NEW YORK HACKS. Thank you all for reading , following , and I promise I will follow up on your sights as well. Peace out brothers and sisters, and a Happy New Year to ALL.
