Here is the first installment of last night’s Robot Monkey smack down brought to you by Dan Walker and t.b.d. New York Shitty Analysis: as the evening waxed on (and the contestants became more intoxicated— which I suppose should be expected with half-price Jameson and Absolut shots) the sportsmanship began to erode quite a bit. But as you will see this only served to make things all the more entertaining. Enjoy!

Number 9.

Man oh Manischewitz was the Williamsburg versus Greenpoint robot battle fierce last night! Greenpoint’s very own Dandelion Wine* made it to the quarter finals but alas 11211 prevailed. Follows is a slide show of the event for your Sunday morning entertainment. Enjoy!

More video footage will be  forthcoming later today— because you know what they say:

It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.

And let’s just say the game was played very interestingly.

P.S.: In somewhat-related news those of you who have been wondering what’s up with this lot next door to t.b.d.


It is no longer available. The owner of t.b.d signed a lease two weeks ago and they are creating an outdoor garden/annex. I have it per a very reliable source it will be up and running Memorial Day weekend. So mark your calendar!

I came across this— what will undoubtedly be THE social event of the season— via a blog (I highly recommend) called Blondie & Brownie. In fact I like the way they wrote about it so much* I am going to hand you over to them for the 411. All I’m saying is:

  1. I like watching mechanized things beat the unholy crap out of each other.
  2. You bet your sweet ass I’m filming this.

In all seriousness this “interactive installation” by artist Dan Walker sounds like a helluva fun way to while away a Saturday night.  Check it out!

Those of you who don’t get your fill of foolishness today (if so, you’re either not looking hard enough or in the wrong places) might be interested to know t.b.d. will be hosting an evening of stand-up comedy, hoaxes and “joaxes”. I am certain drink specials will be involved as well. Check it out!
