Happenings on Franklin Street

Here is a smattering of what’s shaking on Franklin Street. There’s a little something for everybody. Even freaks like me, as you will see.

Fetty Invite

Tomorrow, August 16, from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. Alter will be having a sample sale of jewelry made by Greenpointer (born and raised!) Fetty of Brooklyn.

Fetty Jewelry

Per Tommy, the co-proprietor of Alter, “…amazing prices (from $20-$100) and fierce selection of brass, sterling silver and even some gold jewelry” are in the offering. I have checked out Fetty’s web site and I gotta tell you that he (or she) has a pretty wicked sense of humor. “Lizzie’s Love”, a necklace graced with an ax and a heart with a significant piece of it missing, is particularly piquant.

Stop in after work and check it out. I have been told champagne will be served. (!)

Night of the Living Zedd

Yeah, this is a ways off but let me tell you something: Rev Jen has been a major influence on yours truly. In fact, if it wasn’t for reading her pithy tomes (my favorite being an essay about Budweiser) New York Shitty probably would not exist. Seriously.

This sex symbol for the insane is not only the proprietress of The Lower East Side Troll Museum, but is also responsible for the fine cinematic masterpiece Lord of the Cockrings (about which she later noted she was not only the film’s director, but also its fluffer!), elfpanties.com (no longer extant) and Doo-Doo the fifth Teletubbie. I can’t wait to see what she and Nick Zedd have cooked up. Per their web site, East Coast Aliens says this will be the first of a monthly series of his films!

  4. Got you. I haven’t been to Manhattan in over a month. I think my IQ has gone up as a consequence.

Tell me what you're thinking...
