January 8th may be recollected by some as being Elvis Presley’s or David Bowie’s birthday, but to me it will be always be Irene Klementowicz Day.

You kick ass, Irene. What’s more, you inspire others (myself included) to kick ass. This post is dedicated to you. Happy Birthday!

Spotted On Bedford Avenue: Brass Knuckle Witches

New York Shitty analysis:

  • I have to say the prospect of vigilantes wearing “sickening” outfits sounds mighty intriguing. However— and to reference a fine film called My Cousin Vinny

Will the person/miscreant whose ass has been kicked honestly care about the apparel his assailant(s) was/were wearing? On Bedford Avenue it is a distinct possibility…

I am going to hazard a guess the woman depicted is Aung San Suu Kyi. Nonetheless, this is a rather nice piece and it made me smile!

LIAR!

Although yours truly was not brave (or stupid— take your pick*) enough to parse this box’s contents it would appear the Box ‘O Porn is not all it is cracked up to be. sigh…

*Lest there be some “value-added” in that box in the way of these fellas.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Vandalism At McGolrick Park?

It would appear someone sporting the initials “J.J.” (this fellow was kind enough to sign his “work”) has seen fit  to make a few modifications to the much-beloved Ericsson memorial at McGolrick Park. These modifications being as follows: dumping a shitload of paint on it. I have received word 94th is on the scene.

UPDATE, 1:40 p.m.: I have received some very good news! Not only is the 94th canvassing door-to-door in the hope someone will have a tip as to who is responsible for this, but the paint is being removed! The perp used acrylic paint which is not only easier to remove, but the patina should not be disturbed.

For those of you who are wondering about the recent closure of the Charleston by the Department of Consumer affairs, a rather extensive explanation has been tendered. It would appear their sidewalk cafe cum “heated patio” sports some not-up-to-spec railing. Who knew?
