A New York Shitty Shout Out: Hello, Jell-O!

Jello Newtown Creek 02To preface: yours truly is neither a fan of the holiday season nor Jell-O. Both of the previous are, in my opinion, teeming with some pretty unsavory things. In the case of the former, a rapacious and very uncharitable frenzy of consumerism; in the latter a bunch of animal components I’d just as well not ponder. I would like to also add it is not the purpose of this site and its author (me) to endorse products.

The previous having been established, there are very few things which please yours truly more than seeing a fellow Greenpointer (and lover of the Shit Tits, as seen at left rendered in the aforementioned rubbery stuff) get recognition for his/her work. This morning it came to my attention that this has in fact happened. Our very own Jell-O Mold Mistress of Brooklyn, Victoria Belanger, has published a book of her creations. It appears to be a very nice one. Those of you who are fans of Jell-O— or know someone who is— can purchase this book online by clicking here.

Way to go, Victoria!

New York Shitty Day Ender: Closure?

I am not going to lie to you: when I learned via Gothamist that Greenpoint’s (and Brooklyn’s) Jell-O Mistress, Victoria Belanger, did not win the grand prize at Gowanus Studio’s Space’s second annual Jell-O competition I got pissed. Big time. Instead of a blue ribbon I’ve been seeing red. Big time. I’m not alone either.

Tony opines:

What a sham! I don’t know what’s worse, not giving the ‘tits’ first prize or having a jello mold contest in a non-climate controlled room during a NYC summer.

Ma Heather states:

I am crushed!

You can fuck around with my emotions six ways to Sunday— I’m used to it— but when you upset my mother I take it personally. The good news is redress/proper recognition may very well be around the corner. Greenpoint takes care of their own. My Newtown Creek Monitoring Committee mole writes:

The committee and consultants LOOOOVEE the jello shit tits. We are talking very seriously about displaying such community responses at the DEP Visitors Center.
Talk is just that: talk. I want to see Ms. Belanger’s loving tribute to our beloved Shit Tits immortalized— photographically— for everyone’s edification at our new Visitor’s Center. It deserves to stand proudly aside Vito Acconci’s fancy fountain. If you agree, please leave your sentiments via comments or send ’em via email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. I’ll make sure they brought to the attention of the appropriate parties.

Thanks!

Miss Heather

SATURDAY: JELL-O SPRINGS ETERNAL

Another year, another Jell-o competition. What I—- and many other fellow Greenpointers, I suspect— want to know is if our very own Jello Mistress Goddess and keeper of Edie the Hamster, Victoria, will represent the Garden Spot? I suppose we’ll have to wait and find out!

JELL-O Springs Eternal
June 26, 2010 starting at 6:00 p.m.
