Photos of Peeps-world

For all you Peeps fans out there, an article in the NY Times today has tons of photographs from the underworld of New York City. These are exactly the sort of ancient sewers and abandoned industrial places that I had in mind while Cal was skulking around and chasing vampires.

If nothing else, this article proves that I didn’t make any of the underworld-y stuff up. This tunnel looks uncannily like one that Peeps spends many pages in:

A gentle warning: One of the spelunkers in this article takes tasteful nude photos of herself underground. If the unclothed (but discretely concealed) human body melts your brain, don’t look!

Here’s the slide show version, with audio.

And don’t forget we’re still blogging at Inside a Dog. The LOLYAs contest is on for 36 more hours!

    (what is it with us and terrorists?)

  2. this is really cool! i have always liked art like this, i reminds me of thjis book i read once call ‘downsiders’ about people that live in the old subway areas.

    the pics have a very eerie feeling, it makes you think of vampires right from the beginning, one of these would have been a cool book cover.

  3. allichie i watched the news for over an hour w/ one of my friends this morning and that was the only thing they talked about! it’s crazy, i still can’t believe it. they had all of this video footage and interviews and pictures ans stuff…

  4. Taylor, are you from MN? you don’t have to answer if you don’t wanna, but I’m from MN and that’s all that is on the news. Still!

  5. Rachael-la,i think i know how to contact him. When you click contact Scott on the hompage, it gives you that thing that says: Scott AT…I forget the rest, but you know what i mean, right. Well, put the @ sign where the AT is. I think it was just a mess up. If it doesn’t work, then sorry!

    11 days till school

  13. Wow, that was amazing. I would love to do something like that. How do you get in contact with people who do that? Do they do it in more than New York? As I said, it’s amazing.

  14. Hey the 6th movie comes out a few days before my bday. Kewl.

    I just started reading peeps, and I’m allready 2/3 of the way through it. OMG IT IS ADDICTING!

    And don’t laugh at me for saying this, but…is that parasite that makes you a peep real? If it isn’t then that means that scott did a great job! (Well, all of his books are great) I know that the other parasites are real that he talks about…so just wonderin! THanks!
