From The New York Shitty Inbox: Michael & Edie

This item comes courtesy of a long-time reader (and Greenpointer) named John. He writes:

This is a one-time email I’m sending about a play we’re hard at work on – it’s called Michael and Edie, written by our own Rachel Bonds, and directed by our own Robert Saenz De Viteri. It’s a madcap holiday comedy with some dark undertones and bits of magic. It’s fun. It’s short (70 minutes). It’s affordable – admission is 12 dollars. The cast is fantastic.

If you’re looking for a fun and easy night out, please consider joining us. We run Wednesday through Sunday for the next two weeks.

You can get the full rundown about this play, the people behind it and purchase tickets by clicking here.

New York Shitty Day Ender: Lost & Found In Translation

March 14, 2010 ·
Filed under: Manhattan, New York City, Subway 

From Mott Street, Manhattan


This (which hails from the Canal Street stop of the 6 train in Manhattan) is bona fide proof that New York City is still an international city— if not in subway service, at least in anger directed at lack of said subway service. Only the MTA could make this kind of racial/ethnic unity (albeit while employing profanity) happen. Mazel tov!

The use of sarcastic quotation marks is a nice touch.

P.S.: Can anyone give me a translation of the Chinese annotation on this flier? My curiousity is driving me crazy.

New & Noteworthy: Neither More Nor Less

What I love about this blog (which hails from the East Village) is encapsulated by the above photograph. Before you, dear readers, get your self-righteous feathers in a ruffle you best look at the entire post. This site isn’t about vilifying or making fun of the homeless.

Neither Nor More Less showcases the disparity between the “New York City” run by and for the affluent and, well, the less photogenic people who actually live here. In the above example we see a well-to-do couple laughing while seemingly oblivious to a man pissing himself. The previous scenario is not dissimilar to what I see in Greenpoint or Williamsburg on any given day. What is transpiring in the East Village will and is happening in Greenpoint. Not that most of the people reading this will be around to see it. We’ll be “priced out”.

My question is how long can we afford to ignore them? Whether our (se)lected officials care to admit it the growing homeless population in our city deserves our attention and compassion. True civilization in my book is how we, as a people, care for those who cannot fend themselves. Be they two or four legged. In this regard our city has failed. Miserably.

TONIGHT: A Couple Of Art-Related Events

January 9, 2009 ·
Filed under: Manhattan, Williamsburg 

Although this is last minute I cannot resist passing along this item. This evening starting at 6:00 p.m. Deitch Projects and the Burleqsue Hall of Fame will be ushering a show featuring the art of Liz Renay (who some of you may recall was the star of John Water’s hilariously abject film Desperate Living). Here’s the scoop from Deitch’s web site:

Deitch Projects and the Burlesque Hall of Fame present “How To Attract Men” a retrospective exhibit of the art of Liz Renay. Pre-pop , Pre-punk, and an outsider on the inside- Liz Renay created her own reality and an enormous body of work along the way including four books, three dozen films and miles of printed publicity. In the first New York showing of her paintings in fifty years, Deitch Projects 76 Grand Street gallery will feature original paintings as well as a salon of important collages, costumes, and artifacts from Ms. Renay’s archives in the Burlesque Hall of Fame.

Liz’s life story weaves itself through almost every American subculture during her life time-burlesque, the Hollywood studio system, television, rock and roll, sexploitaion and punk films, the mafia and women’s prison. She precipitated and participated in the sexual revolution. Through it all she created a large body of paintings and art. This work would seem unbelievable if created by any other artist- but in the case of Liz Renay, it is a direct reflection of a life as art.

This is a must-see event (especially for my buddy Bitchcakes— you hear me out there?). Check it out!

Those of you who want something a little closer to home will be interested to know that this evening the Williamsburg Gallery Association will be having their first Williamsburg Every 2rd event this evening as well. All the fun stuff that awaits you is simply too plentiful to go into here, but you can check out their itinerary here (be advised this is a .pdf) or by pointing and clicking your way over to RAW Magazine’s web site.
