Saw this “One in 8 Million” on the NY Times today, they played it up on their home page. Nice collaboration of audio and photo. As you might suspect (good titles are amazing, huh), it’s one person from the 8 million among the Gotham population.
Street musicians have good stories. From my handful of NY subway encounters, the street musicians are typically really good musicians and/or entertainers. The image above is from a street musicians’ interview.
The Oklahoman’s Michael Kimball posted a video last night also using only photo and audio. Completely different subject matter and tone. But still engaging.
Matthew Gene Fox had plenty to say to reporters who visited him Thursday at the Tarrant County jail. Fox, 17, suspected in the Saturday night stabbing death of his girlfriend’s father, Leroy Herrera, 41, admitted the killing but said it was self-defense.
Fox said he was hiding in his girlfriend’s closet when her father came in and “began yelling at her.”
Fox said Herrera asked, “Who are you?” and “I told him, ‘Don’t worry about it. If you’re going to hit somebody, hit me. Don’t hit a girl.’
“He’s like, ‘What are you going to do about it?’ Come on, hit me, hit me,” Fox said.
The Oklahoman’s Penny Cockerell filed the story. You can watch the video here:
