This most unexpected (and welcome) item comes courtesy of the peeps behind the defunct (and sorely missed) East Coast Aliens. They write:

East Coast Aliens are pleased to announce the grand opening of Shangri-La Studio. After the shock and sadness of having to shut down ECA studios last year we are delighted to pass the torch on to a new and better venue in Greenpoint. Shangri-La shares the same vision of providing professional artistic services and a center for art and culture. Shangri-La is bigger, stronger and faster but don’t take our word for it and come find out for yourself during the opening party next Saturday (see invite below). Promotional rates for the studios will be extended to film makers and photographers who attend the party. If you can’t make it next Saturday stop by during May to visit the studio and take advantage of the promotional opening rates. Mention East Coast Aliens in your inquiries and you will be treated as a return customer.We look forward to seeing you there.

Shangri-La Studio Grand Opening Party
May 1, 2010 starting at 8:00 p.m.
RSVP required
100 Sutton Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

Reader Contribution Du Jour: The McCarren Park Tree Twat, Revisited

This find hails from (where else?) Bedford Avenue and North 12 Street and comes courtesy of Alex who writes:

See the attached photo for something I spotted in McCarren park this past Saturday.  Someone saw fit to adorn the park’s vaginal tree with a piercing… classy.

Where’s Larry Flynt when you need him?

UPDATE, August 30, 2010: It has come to my attention that this piece has been linked to by AOL. This is a New York Shitty first! In this tome (which you can read here) the author— for reasons only known to him— saw fit to get a quote from Gersh Kuntzman of the Brooklyn Paper. Why, I do not know. Mr. Kuntzman is a lot of things, but an expert on north Brooklyn is not one of them. What’s more he has a nasty habit of lifting content from blogs— mine among them. In some circles this is considered plagiarism. Suffice it to say I am not a fan of Mr. Kuntzman.

With the previous disclosure I present to you what he had to say about the above item (and vagina trees in general):

I think I speak for all Brooklynites who love vaginas — and I’m speaking for a lot of people, so I understand the gravitas — when I say that the only place to truly enjoy a vulva of any kind is in McCarren Park.

Given that this gent has seen fit to videotape himself molesting a multimillion dollar apartment and that I was in McCarren Park just yesterday this, well, makes me more than a little nervous. Methinks I’ll be patronizing Gantry State Park in Queens moving forward. I would advise you, dear readers, to follow suit: the sticky stuff on our foliage might not be sap!
