The Word On The Street: FRI$KY BU$INE$$

As spied on Essex Street. While I am on the subject, I would like to give a shout out to Curtis & Kuby’s Facebook page. Today the latter was kind enough to share my “product”!. I quickly discerned this when I received an inquiry. It goes as follows:

Please tell me the stop & frisk snowglobe is a real product. How does one go about acquiring one or two?

I have assured this gentleman that this snow globe is quite real. Nevertheless, the latter is an excellent question. One quite frankly I had not pondered. This in large part because I have so much darned fun making these bad boys (and girls). In any case, here’s the deal:

  • Inasmuch as I would like to do a flat rate price by size (of globe), the fact of the matter is some are more costly to make in terms of material and labor than others. Thus…
  • they will be priced accordingly and on a case by case basis.
  • Anyone interested in purchase a snow globe should contact me via email at: missheather (at) newyorkshitty (dot) com. Please be sure to indicate which one you are interested in.
  • All transactions and donations (Yes, I have had folks ask if they can help finance this venture) will be conducted via PayPal. My account is the previously listed email address.
  • I suppose it would be helpful if a provided a link to my “product”. This photo set shows what I have created, what I am presently working on, the “process” in all its fun and frustration. I update it on a fairly regular basis— so check back periodically!

Presently I am working on a snow globe which explores the phenomenon of “indecent exposure” and how technology (smart phones in particular) has shifted the “balance of power” so to speak from the “flasher” to the “flashee”. This seems to have resulted in more responsiveness to this kind of thing from our constabulary. As you can see, gentle readers this chap is exposing himself to mixed reactions from his “audience”. Two have elected to run away, one is reading him the riot act and another is calmly documenting it on her smart phone (from hence it will undoubtedly find its way onto the Internet).

On the “to do” list:

  • Occupy Wall Street: I suspect this will be a series.
  • This guy.
  • Alec Baldwin getting arrested for bicycling down Fifth Avenue the wrong way.

I think we can all agree this needs to happen. In closing (and on a related note) I would like to give a shout out to this rather nifty endeavor which is presently on view in Long Island City.

It would appear the construction fence fail at 958 Manhattan Avenue (which, inasmuch as I can ascertain, has been in effect since at least March 17th) has come to the attention of Paul Richard. If/when the Department of Buildings will take action remains to be seen.
