*Where they were busy at work today (UNTIL 10:17 p.m.). These gents have got to be the hard(on)est working men I know. I s’pose that’s why they waste their time catcalling woman and buying porn at the junk shop on their lunch hour.

I do not want to suggest the hard working men at this development are merely horny. They are choosy. They prefer their porn on DVDs. (VHS is beneath them.) When I proffered “Blackeyed Pees” (on DVD) to one such chap it did not suit his taste. He left.

Believe it or not the one thing I really hate about being too busy (and afterwards too damned tired) to keep my regular posting “schedule” is the stuff that falls between the cracks.

This is one such item which did, indeed, fall by the wayside. It comes from a reader named Tony. He writes:

You are cordially invited to an evening of artwork dedicated to and inspired by volcanoes.

Artist, performer & curator, Eliza Fernand has organized this group show, Volcano Love, as an initiative for artists that she knows to explore a theme that has been popping up in her own artwork.

It should be a fun night, with artwork in many mediums. This is a one-night only affair.

Artists include: Jessie Elder, Eliza Fernand, Emily M. Harris, Athena Kokoronis, Tony Luib, Jessie Marino, Jennifer Mills, Ayaka Nishina, Katie M. Parry, Diana Roffman, Emma Spertus, Mark Inglis Taylor

47 Beaver St @ Park St in Bushwick, Brooklyn
7 – 10pm

3 blocks south of the J, M line – Flushing Ave stop
10 blocks south of the L line  – Montrose Ave stop

This one-night only event sounds like a lot of fun. Check it out!

Filed under: Crazy Cat Lady, Greenpoint Magic 

I was disheartened to learn this weekend that Greenpoint’s cutest Pit Bull (yes, they do exist— bad owners make bad dogs, they are not born that wayhear me, Mr. Vallone?), Bianca was badly injured. This evening Alphabeta will be hosting a benefit for her. The event kicks off at 6:00 p.m. Why not swing by and lend your support to this lovely lass?

A Very Special Pay Phone du Jour

Filed under: Queens 

This pay phone hails from Liberty Avenue in Ozone Park and comes courtesy of Kevin Walsh of Forgotten New York. I’m not too sure which saint this is (I call him St. Detritus of Queens County) but he should head down to Court Square. There he will find a pay phone in dire need of divine intervention.

This Shirt ROCKS!

Filed under: Greenpoint Magic 

Last night I saw a guy wearing this shirt on Franklin Street. I simply had to ask him about it. He said it was a gift but thought it was purchased on Manhattan Avenue somewhere near Nassau. Any Greenpointers out there know where? I simply MUST possess this item (for obvious reasons).

From North 15th Street.

On that note today’s offerings will in all likelihood be sporadic and lite. This is due to (more) pet-related joy on the home front. Last week it was abscessed anal glands, this week it is ringworm. Sulfur dips here we come!

Studio B Rides Again!

September 17, 2008 ·
Filed under: Asshole, Greenpoint Magic 

Last weekend they had an event replete with busloads of clueless people being dumped on Banker Street and asking for directions.

Greenpointer #1:

We went through the same exercise last night. (name excised) finally went out and walked over, because of the one school bus whose alarm kept going off was killing his head.

it was a private afterparty to accompany some concert/event down in coney island. when we got home at 11:30 there were about 200 ppl waiting outside, the club wasn’t open. eventually when the half-dozen school buses showed up with their passengers, the place opened.

they were NOT stupid enough to open the second floor.

there was a driveby of two patrol cars when (excised) was over sniffing around – that was about the time that the security out front yelled at the bus drivers that they could not doublepark and block the road – and they left. also for what it’s worth, i was up until about 2:30 and heard someone yelling more than once that people could go in or go home but they couldn’t stand outside.

the biggest issue seemed to be that people honestly had no idea where they had been dropped off so they stopped on our corner repeatedly to discuss. (Excised) helped one or two of them along.

i don’t know what the legalities of renting it out for a private party are. i can’t imagine that C of O is different in that situation.

Greenpointer #2:

HOWEVER, this gentleman: is performing this weekend (September 19, 2008) at an event at Studio B. The flier is in his MySpace profile. They are offering bottle service and buses from Jersey.

Per Denis Hamill Studio B is planning a real BLOW OUT September 27!

Those of you who want to read the rest of this article can do so by clicking here. Otherwise…

Studio B has no cabaret license. Per the DCA 259 Banker is a retail establishment. What’s more, they (being Studio B) cannot legally hold 2,000 people; the legal occupancy is 461 people. No more, no less. Best to do your research first, Mr. Hamill. Regurgitating press releases without proper research does not constitute journalism— no matter how right the end may be, what Studio B is doing is wrong.

I’m not against helping “Dr. Tom”. I simply think it should be done right: Advertising Studio B as a 2,000 seat venue is fraud (or very bad reporting). I live in Greenpoint. I operate a humble blog about my ‘nabe. You might have heard of it, Mr. Hamill— many journos like to use my site for “leads” without crediting it. New York Post, mostly.

I did my research, clearly you didn’t. You’re the professional journalist. Not me.

Shame on you.
