Michael Calderone’s Streaker Roommate

You can’t make this up… He’s Michael Calderone‘s ex roommate:

For about a year, starting around the fall of 2003, Josh was one of my roommates in a three-bedroom apartment in Williamsburg (which I’m sadly leaving very soon to move to Washington D.C.). I can’t remember exactly when, because like most shares near the Lorimer ‘L’ stop, there’s an endless stream of Craigslist-users, ‘hipsters,’ and-in Postnomenclature-‘Brooklyn eccentrics’ moving in or out. So I didn’t really know Josh very well-say, well enough to determine whether he was engaged in performance art or a mental breakdown when he ran around Times Square naked yesterday. (Cover aside, the Post offers a slideshow, too.) But he is a playwright by trade, and a smart witty guy, so it could all be some kind of situationist prank. […] And for the record, I never saw him naked. Until today-on the cover of the Post. Now that’s what I call wood!

How’s that for your daily dose of synchronicity?
