We just received this missive from 30 Seconds To Mars lead guitarist Tomo Milicevic, so we’d thought we’d pass it along to you. Don’t forget, we’re constantly grabbing updates from Tomo and the rest of the guys all month long and putting them up over on our VH1 Posted site. Enjoy!

I often wonder what it must have been like on these streets at the beginning of this amazing city. NYC has to be one of the world’s most amazing places, if not THE most amazing. It truly does inspire and will definitely enhance the dreams of anyone who spends time here. I mean, can you think of another place on earth where you can look to the left and see two business type dudes walking and talking about numbers and stocks, while coming in the other direction is a chick in a rubber cat suit on a leash, being pulled around by a guy wearing a gimp mask? And then walk right past each other as if that IS normal. Maybe it is … Who are we to say what’s normal anyway, right? I just absolutely love everything about this place and how it makes you feel inside. It makes you want to do something special, something meaningful.
If the fountain of youth exists, the NYC streets may very well be its source. I know that every time I come here, I leave feeling refreshed and revitalized. There are not many places other than your own home that can do that for a person, but this is one of them. I’m thankful — and grateful — that NYC exists, and I’m even more grateful and thankful that I get to spend so much time here.
This truly is the greatest city in the world…
