About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what matters...or not

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A sick woman in Orleans, MA began stalking me in 2007 on Myspace. Since that time, this woman obsessed over me to the point of having the police come to her home and threaten to confiscate her laptop. She is a racist and anti-Semite.I could no longer blog freely, knowing this nutbag was just going to take the photos I'd post and put them on a child exploitation website.

This site is only up for the information it has that others might need to know about. That information is about "Seal Shepherd" aka Michael McDade, Kat McAboy aka Marilyn McAboy and Veronika Hompo, a self-proclaimed Nazi.

I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

This blog is no longer used. I've retired it for the most part unless something very important comes up.

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them on Twitter and Facebook.

New York Daily Photo: Ray's

Yum. I remember going downtown for the first time — sans parents, with friends — and stopping off at Ray's for pizza. But which Ray's was the real Ray's? Go to New York Daily Photo and read the interesting story about the Ray's written by Brian Dubé.

Oh, and if you've never even had New York pizza, you don't even have a clue what you're missing. Pizza made anywhere else just isn't pizza.

Some pizza places in NYC deliver — to anywhere in the United States ;)
Order Ray's!

See Wikipedia for some additional interesting or fun info, such as:

  • On Seinfeld, in the 1998 episode "The Maid", Kramer becomes lost in Manhattan and calls Jerry for help, leading to the following exchange:
Kramer: I miss home, and I don't even know how to get there.
Jerry: What's around you?
Kramer: I'm lookin' at Ray's Pizza. You know where that is?
Jerry: Is it Famous Ray's?
Kramer: No. It's Original Ray's.
Jerry: Famous Original Ray's?
Kramer: It's just Original, Jerry!

  • The oldest of the current Ray's Pizzas was opened by Ralph (Raffie) Cuomo of Little Italy, Manhattan at 27 Prince Street in 1959 near the country's first pizzeria, Lombardi's. He is the son of Matthew (Joe) Cuomo who was recognized as a made man and street soldier for the Gambino crime family.

  1. I prefer John's Pizzeria on Bleecker Street. Pearlstein introduced me to it.

  2. Ooooh, I love that place, too! I forgot all about it! Wow, it's been so long. I always got pizza there when I was in that area, which was often at night, oooh so long ago.

    I'm picky locally, also. I prefer my place down the block, Romeo's Pizza, to all the others nearby. I'm loyal to Romeo's even though we have dozens of pizzeria's in town, and some are really quite good. I know the owners, they know my family, and I know what I'm getting.

    (So to anyone who happens across my little blog: Romeo's Pizza, Franklin Square, NY 11010)

  3. The pizza places in my neighborhood are shit. If I want pizza I have to go into Manhattan.
