More France: Podcast in Crumb's record room!

I thought I would have lots of time here to blog but I just have been out doing stuff instead which is good! We are renting a 3 floor apartment and we do hang out in it and practice music and record but it's 90's every day here and it's one event after another. I did manage to learn the basics of iMovie and have been editing short little videos for Wagtail Rescue and the Wag Report my friend Holly and I's project for her small dog rescue. Tonight we go see David Gilmour from Pink Floyd at this real Roman Arena in Nimes...excited! Tomorrow we hit the beach again with the Crumbs and kiddos...dinner over the weekend with the Crumb's at a new restaurant we heard about...Sunday we go to Transe Cevonole a 3 day kinda gypsy circus event in another village with performers and bands all day and all the stuff starting in Sauve this weekend live live music every single day in the streets. I love it here! I do follow the live RNC streams this week but then I block it all out with fun and exotic places and music and food. So happy not to be in NYC for another month! Joh was called to work both the RNC and the DNC and he is happy to be here instead that's for sure.
Here are some pics from the podcast we did last night with Crumb in his record room and some other stuff! Suave at night...some graffiti around Sauve, our friend Don Julio performing in the street, a poster Robert did for some upcoming shows here..and the PLAGE OH MAN DO I LOVE THE FANCY PLAGE! LIFE IS SWELL FRIEND-O's!

Frites, suckas!

So we have been in the south of France hanging with the Crumbs for almost one week now! Well, we hang with everyone here since we know half the village by now even though my french is pretty nonexistent still. Total heatwave since we arrived but the next few days are only 70 and cloudy so I have time to post some pics...I will have to do two posts cause I have a ton of pics. It's hard to not take a lot when it's so beautiful here and still a shock from NYC though we have visited about 7 times now or so. We have a gig at the Crumb gallery in August so far...very mellow and quiet here but that changes this week with Bastille Day on thursday and some shows and events happening afterwards.
Anyfrites, here are some pics of stuff. Lots of stuff. French stuff. Our cool shower that was a wine cellar, a new tattoo parlor in Sauve, waterfalls we go to here, the adorable kiddos of Sophie, some art and murals around the village and watching the big game a few days ago out in the street with the entire village of Monoblet.

BBQ's, Dogs, Trump and whatever the hell else I still have on my desktop!

This is every damn photo I have yet to upload on here from my desktop and some are so old I don't remember when I took them. But they are fun and for the next six weeks all my pics will be of waterfalls, the Crumbs and the beautiful south of France and Portugal so I put these up now. A mini reunion of gals at Csquat, the Free Advice Puppet lady in Tompkins, some band trying to play while a homebum dances right in front of them for like two hours, random pics of friends including Caroline Rhea holding Angelina dog, the best Donald Trump hand puppet ever made, the tiniest cop car ever made, a show at sidewalk cafe, a BBQ in La Plaza....some "NY Moments" captured by me as I leave for a while tomorrow with John for 6 glorious weeks or more! It's a good life!

The Dismantling of Rev Jen's Troll Museum

So LES icon Reverend Jen was forcibly AND illegally evicted from her apartment today which was also the home of the Troll Museum which had hundreds of troll dolls in it that she has been collecting for decades now. I went over there at around 2pm and things were already getting bagged up and brought down the 6th floor walkup by many of her friends. I helped out and also grabbed a few things I will hold for her as she goes to court July 20th to fight this insanity.
Vanishing New York has the story up so I am just going to link to that and let these photos speak for themselves. I uploaded one video of people helping her decide what to take and bringing it to the streets. Since it's the Rev we managed to have some fun as she told us stories about parties and things that happened there throughout the years but all in all it was extremely sad. More of our hood bites the dust.
