Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: An Ode To Ash

This evening while running errands I caught my favorite bodega cat, Ash, in a rather compromising position.

However, Ash is a good sport about these things provided she gets rubbins. She knows I am a trusty provider too. They always know.

As I was lavishing attention upon her, one girl appeared at the door. Naturally Ash, being not just a loss prevention expert but also the ambassador of this establishment, obliged her.

Then two girls appeared.

Then three.

Ash then proceeded to demonstrate her skillz on the nearby Wall of Beer. Much to her peril, as it proved.

Those two packs of beer at far right almost toppled over. I caught them. This sent her youngest admirer into pealing fits of laughter. I did not just save Ash’s dignity, but I probably saved an aficionado of Zywiec and Lomza from opening a can of beer and having it spray in his face. That shit is for DRINKING. Two counts of dignity, saved.

But enough about me. Or beer.

This post is for you, Ash. The joy you give patrons of this establishment, children foremost among them, even melts the cockles of my heart. I’m sure the parents of the aforementioned children would concur, despite the exasperation of having to collect their them from partaking of your charms (which happened tonight). Ash, you are a loved, cherished member of the community.

Just keep away from the Wall of Beer, okay?

I have a saying, it goes as follows:

You take care of the community and the community will take care.

I have seen this demonstrated time and time again in the 11222. And today the Greenpoint Garbage Gods really delivered.

As I was running errands something caught the corner of my eye. I went in for a closer look.

Now this is interesting.
I have found a lot of interesting shit walking around north Brooklyn. Anal beads, pornography of every stripe imaginable; even a 4′ tall plastic statue of Simon the Chipmunk (which graces our dining room). This, however, is a first: a voodoo doll.

It should go without saying I brought him (?) home. Mister Heather, despite being a professed atheist, is unnerved by my new friend. I assured him as things go:

I tend to have good working relationships with things which may otherwise want to rip your face off.

I am not sure this provided the solace he needed. However he did reach a level of grudging acceptance when I read to him what this item does:

Your doll is a medium to focus on a problem or desire. You can personalize with hair, small photo or any small item…

As it would happen I do have a problem and it is my utmost desire that it GO AWAY. FOREVER. Best of all despite that party’s best efforts, I got photos too. Now if you all don’t mind it is time to get busy. Cheers!

An Interesting Turn Of Events: Enter Dame

I received an interesting Tweet today. I’ll let the following speak for itself…

So there have you. Courtesy of my 94th Precinct Experience I have made a new friend: the CEO/co-founder of Dame Products! Who saw that one coming? Probably not the my arresting officers, for certain. But this is where we are. This tale just gets more and more interesting…

Despite the blustery weather there was a handsome turn-out at last night’s show at La Bodega. A nice array of work and folks! This show will be up until September 29th for any/all who are interested in checking it out. Once again:

In light of the graffiti I found when dropping off my work La Bodega (as seen above), I felt an item I had commissioned would be best deployed there. This community is to which it can some shred of succor. An “outlet”, if you will.

An ICE/Border Patrol pinata! I can hardly wait to see what they do with it. Cheers!

Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Cheers!

Happy Labor Day, y’all!

Hooliganism!

Suffice it to say it’s been an interesting week for yours truly. However, as things go, I am a pretty tough bitch nowadays. Also, I have a sense of humor. So when my buddy at Queens Crap had an idea— this being securing coupons for Dame Products and gifting them to 94th Precinct— I decided to follow up on it. I mean, what are they going to do? Throw me in jail? So off to Twitter I went. Enjoy!

This, ladies and gentlemen, is living your best life. I hold no grudges against Dame. They are not the problem. Patriarchy and the upholders of it are.

When is a stripped, abandoned car that’s been left on the street for over a month not a stripped, abandoned car that’s been left on the street for over a month?

When it is called art! Note this is located across the from the defaced sex toy ads of infamy. You know folks, priorities.

UPDATE, 8/21/19, 2:54 PM: I have received word this hilarious item has been removed. I went out and checked personally and IT WAS! See folks:

  1. If you make an abandoned car art, the police will remove it.
  2. Shaming WORKS!

The neighborhood sure is getting fancy. Of course there still is plenty of “wiggle room” for the properly motivated person to “act out”. Head down to Freeman Street by the Shit Tits and knock yourselves out fellow reprobates. Tell ’em Heather sent you.
