How a Resurrection Really Feels
The Hold Steady

They wrote her name in magic marks, on stop signs and subway cars. They got a mural up on East 13th that said hallelujah rest in peace. Hallelujah was a hoodrat. She’s been disappeared for years, today she finally came back. 

 

Slice Harvester Issue 6 “The Villages” 

Came across Colin’s review of the two pizza places by my old middle school. I finished many homework assignments during my lunch period, sitting at the window high chair at Vinny Vincez. There were grease stains on so many of those pages. The painting of the mobsters riding the 1 train was always a nice touch too. Found memories of that place. Plus the actual pizza was great — they used to have a deal, two slices and a soda for $4. Not sure if that exists anymore. 

Slice Harvester correspondent Cory Feierman — record store manager, dream-babe rock’n’roller, pizza lover, punk rocker — has long mentioned to me that he is pretty into the slice at Vinny Vincenz, although last Thursday when we went by Academy to say hello to him, he was quick to mention that the slice there is usually hit or miss. Luckily for Matthew, Noah and I, our slice last week was a huge hit. 

This slice was well cooked and had great ratios. It was a noisy slice. It snapped and cracked when bitten or folded, but it wasn’t brittle, just delicately crisp. It had good cheese and excellent charred flavor, though it was a tad on the small side. Matthew said, “the thinness of the crust demonstrates a measured skill, “and I couldn’t agree more. But heed the words of Cory, apparently we were lucky and this slice is usually all over the map.”

Johny’s Pizza and Pasta was always whack. That review was spot on. I never knew why kids wouldn’t just walk the extra block for a decent slice. 

"And I’m sure my (currently non-existent) newphews and nieces or my newphews’ and nieces’ newphews and nieces will look at some of the yuppie shithole pizzerias that i hate the decor of and they will have seen them since they were little kids and they will have an affinity for that stuff and whatever the spaceage new shit that comes out when they are teenagers will be stupid to them or whatever, but it’s actually, ultimately all the same crap. And this pizza is also the same crap."
