Last night I finally received a disappointing confirmation of something I had suspected for a month: East Coast Aliens is going out of business. Today from 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. they will be hosting a “Huge Blow Out Sale” featuring items such as sound equipment, furniture, art/silk screening supplies and much, much more. If you’re looking for a bargain (let’s face it, art supplies are not cheap) check it out.

Save Rainer!

Tonight I was very despondent to learn that Rainer (one half of the feline dynamic duo at Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers) is experiencing health woes! Per the gentleman I spoke with this evening a cancerous tumor has been found on one of his shoulders. He is scheduled to have surgery next week and may very well end up losing a leg. If you have the time and money to spare please swing by, make a donation and give Rainer and his family your best wishes.

It’s been some time since I have caught up with Greenpoint’s most stylish pup: Miss Mordred. I am pleased to report she is doing well. As you will see in this little video of her strutting her stuff along with her big brother Zoltan at the junk shop. Enjoy!

What’s next for Mordred, you ask? Well, Jocelyn (her person) is going to dress her up as Grimace and we’re going to collaborate on a very special fashion shoot. Stay tuned, this is gonna be good!

The Waterpod Cometh

January 30, 2009 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic, Newtown Creek, Queens

Waterpodâ„¢ is a floating sculptural living structure designed as a new habitat for the global warming epoch. It is currently scheduled to launch in New York in May, 2009, from the Newtown Creek between Brooklyn and Queens, navigate down the East River, explore the waters of New York Harbor, and stopping at each of the five boroughs it will dock at several Manhattan piers on the Hudson River, then beyond.

As a sustainable, navigable living space, Waterpodâ„¢ showcases the critical importance of the environment and serves as a model for new living technologies. It illustrates positive interactions between communities: private and corporate; artistic and social; aquatic and terrestrial. Built from recycled and found materials, Waterpodâ„¢ is structured as a triple-domed island for: (i) community and artistic activity; (ii) eco-initiatives including food grown with purified water from the Hudson River; and (iii) living space…

Felines Lost & Found

January 29, 2009 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg 

I have a couple of pet-related items to relay to you. In the interest of brevity (it’s been a long day) I have decided to put them in one quick and easy post. Here it goes.

LOST

mingus

First up, Mingus the cat has gone MIA. I’m not too certain where his home is but this flier hails from Huron Street. So all of you who live in the general area keep an eye out for this little fella. It goes without saying (but I’m to say it anyway) if you have seen him or know of his whereabouts please contact his owner at the above telephone number. Thanks!

FOUND

This item comes courtesy of Laura Hofmann. She writes:

This cat showed up today on our 5th floor fire escape… He wondered onto a brick gargoyle on the front of the building. Fortunately, my son was able to reach him and rescue him. We’ve knocked on many doors in our apt building. Looks like he doesn’t belong to anyone here. The cat has a purple collar on it.
If you know who this brave little guy (or gal) belongs to please contact Laura via email at  bargeparkpals (at) msn (dot) com. In the meantime their building’s super is keeping him/her safe and warm in their building’s basement overnight.
ecc
Last up, for those of you who do not have a cat (but very much want one) Empty Cages Collective will be having another adoption event at NYC Pet Supplies this Saturday, January 31 starting at 1:00 p.m. Check it out!
