NEW sfrommywindow

This reporter, upon realization that low water plants were thriving under his window, has concluded that there is a NEW window to report from. Previously, only fringe theorists had speculated a sea change, but it is now the held opinion that the lack of reports has been directly linked to a window change. This desk, being hyper local, has had considerable disorientation at the realization of a NEW local. As data and first hand accounts come in, NFMW will surely gain insight into a new found sense of self and location.

Unsubstantiated reports have come in that this new window also has a hyper local location.

Arts from My Window: Film Noir and the downward gaze

By Joseph Arens, NFMW

In an expression of the prototypical Noir attitude, one hyper-local male stares down at his feet. One foot flat on the ground and the other propped up against the wall which he leans against. Contemplative and cool, with his hands in his pockets, the man seems not to notice passing pedestrian activity. His demeanor is dark and shadowed, almost certainly due to a life of obligatory burden by which he gained unsettling expertise.

Relationship status unclear

By Joseph Arens, NFMW

A local couple walked passed the window today in total silence. Some have speculated that their relationship is currently struggling. It could be that while they used to have vibrant and full conversations during evening walks, now they have nothing left to say. Others, however, might refute this argument saying that the twenty seconds that the couple where in view of the window is not a large enough sample size to make such a claim.
