Jesus Christ, a lot's been happening lately! So much I'm not ever sure where to begin. After that Times article there was a chain reaction of news and comments and other such happenings, like that "New York, I love you" video, which in two weeks has gotten 130,000 views! It's certainly inspiring a range of comments in both directions. Here's a perfect example of what I'm talkin' about:

It's funny how you make money off? of mentally ill and drug addicted people. That's a true artist. Yep. Bravo.

I wonder what would happen if you spent the sheer amount of effort and time you do exploiting these people, and instead tried to actually volunteer somewhere or do something to help someone.

It's funny that you categorize everyone..."hipster" "scenester" "junky" "crusty" etc. How would you categorize yourself? I honestly don't know either, but it's certainly no better than any of them. =)

Dear Bob,

I recently stumbled upon your website amazing strangers, and i have been amazed by the sheer detail of your work, not without judging but with a deep respect for all the people that you portray.

For hours i've clicked and watched your videos, read your reviews on people and analyzed the pictures, great job.

As you can guess from the adress below, i'm from Rotterdam, the netherlands, a mayor city as well.

We too have our colourful amazing strangers of whom i know many, you see them in the streets, squares and alleys and you wonder who they are, where they go and in some cases they disappear and you wonder where they've gone.

I never bothered to document my fascination with these people and i admire you for doing so.

Kind regards,
Bas Horsman

Then there's the iPhone app hooplah that I'll get into another time, and I'm barely out of the woods with the whole Comic Con fiasco to boot! All this plus having to deal with buttloads of complaints and hate mail and yelling and personal questions and, and.... Yes, I'm in heaven.

I hope you're getting along with it as well.

Lilly Cobble

Why do so many people email me while they're looking in the mirror?


Sorry. Couldn't resist.


“I hope you will consider taking this site down please.”


Hope you're well. Came across your site and maybe you've heard/read this before but... John 3:16  God loves us so much that He gave His  only Son to die for us, so that everyone who believes in Him won't spend eternity in hell but have eternal life.

So it's serious stuff really.... I hope you will consider taking this site down please.

Many thanks

Yeah, but I've since found out that that book was just written by man. I mean, uh-duh, right? But anywho, that news-flash reminded me to take what it says with a serious grain of salt. Especially the promises after the grave parts. Because, Deb, no men know that, even when they promise they do. Or even when the promise God promises they do!

Just trying to keep the dialog sane and reasonable.
Thanks for the suggestions.


“May God cloth YOU in His blessings and love this Christmas and always.”


As a Christian Jesus is my Lord and my Saviour - He is God Almight who came to earth at Christmas.
Such is Gods love that Jesus, His Son, lived and died for you.  He paid the price for our wrong doing to save us from eternal damnation
But death could not hold Him - God raised Him from death and now He lives in Heaven - and so through faith in Him we are promised eternal life in His Kingdom.
("God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that who ever believes in Him shall not perish but have  eternal life" from the book of John - ch 3v16 -
in the Bible)
Jesus wept for those who mocked Him and would not/did not believe
"Yet to all who receive Him, to those who believe in His name, He gave the right to become children of God"  John 1:12
Jesus is the only Way  "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no ther name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."  Acts 4:12
Confess and believe ... "...that if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved.  For it
is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."  Romans 10:9,10
Assurance of Salvation  "I tell you the truth, whoever hears My (Jesus') word and believes Him (God the Father) who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned;  he has
crossed over from death to life"  John 5:24.
May God cloth YOU in His blessings and love this Christmas and always.

Emails like these, where someone's parroting everything, really sound like they're written by retards.

Retarded, or a completely brainwashed cult member. And I don't see how anyone could ever have a change of heart from someone sounding like that.

Take a long look at yourself in the mirror and start doing to major overhauls on your personality. THEN come back and talk like a human being. That's how you get people to listen. Not this zombie-salesman white noise. 

Good luck.

Well duh. I say that right on the website.
