Introducing the Subby Awards!

I live and work in New York City, so I spend at least an hour every day in some part of the subway system. And as anybody who’s been to New York can tell you, there are some things you only see in the subway…or at least there are some things you only see in the subway if you don’t belong to some wierdo cult. Either way, for a blogger who writes about things that are cool not to take advantage of the treasure trove of awesome source material that I encounter regularly on the A train would be a travesty.

Of course, I could just write about the amazing things I encounter riding the rails and call it a day. But the way I see it, New York’s freaky subway encounters are better than all other freaky subway encounters, so I’m going to show some hometown pride and hand out some awards. I’ll always include photographic evidence of just what makes a Subby winner so grand. (I mean, let’s face it, this whole thing is pretty much just an excuse to put up some wacky photos and comment on them.) And I’d like to see this turn into an interactive thing, so if you see something truly amazing on the subway, snap a picture and email it to me. I’ll be sure to give you credit for your Subby nomination and photo.

So, without further ado, I am pleased to bring you the first ever Subby award, courtesy of my local A train stop at 181st Street:

Best Use of Googly Eyes in Support of Vandalism

Best Use of Googly Eyes in Support of Vandalism

This video game looks like it could be quite good, but its subway ad is a little scary for general audiences. Thankfully some industrious young ne’er-do-well added fun stick-on googly eyes, and maybe now it won’t give the kiddies in my ‘hood nightmares. If only knife-wielding assailants were this hilarious in real life.
