This items comes from my friend at the Greenpoint Reformed Church, Ann Kansfield. She writes:

Hey Heather,

I have a favor to ask…We’re starting a queer friendly youth group at the church, and we need some help getting the word out.  It’s open to everyone, and I’m hoping that you might help us reach teens who are looking for such a group.  I’ve attached a flier, and it’s posted on the church website at http://greenpointchurch.org/archives/224.  Feel free to put a shout out that we’re an LGBT-affirming church. Also, I’m more than happy to be a supportive clergy-person to anyone who might be struggling with matters of faith.

While hardly the church-going type I for one think this is a wonderful (and long overdue) idea and want to help spread the word!

New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: District Dog Halloween Parade & Costume Contest

November 1, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

As promised I have assembled a slide show of yesterday’s festivities for your viewing pleasure. Before I proceed, however, I would like to tender a few thoughts/props.

AC Unit

1. I confided to my fellow judge, Assemblyman Joe Lentol, that I felt the air conditioning unit entry should be given an honorable mention because “I cannot imagine why someone would dress up their dog as one.” To wit he replied:

Maybe it is in heat?

I can honestly say I never thought of that.

Three Legged Squirrel

Peg Leg

2. Two three legged dogs were contestants in this year’s contest. One placed and one received an honorable mention.

Hollywood

3. I really, REALLY liked this entry but was overruled. So it goes.

Janitor and mop

4. I have no idea why this duo, a janitor and his “mop”, didn’t enter. I loved it!

Garden Gnomes

5. This gaggle of garden gnomes gets points for concept but I found the execution lacking. Maybe they’ll take another stab at this next year? I can only hope so.

Lobster in a pot

6. Arguably the most difficult decision was Second Place for best “Group”. It basically came down to this entry, which is absolutely adorable, and the G, L and Z trains. The judges’ collective disgust with the MTA prevailed.

And on that note and without further ado here is the slide show. Enjoy!
