New post! I am posting! Me! Posting!

Couldn't think of a title for this post..just a bunch of stuff going on around town...or within a five block radius of my place! Which is how far I will go in this weather...getting ready to pack and leave next weekend for france to see the Crumbs so trying to do a lot. Played a show last night...saw a show in the park...had a visit from the Free the Nipple hippie bus whom I adore...and other random thingamajigs. So here are some pics and videos from that....for you, dear readers, to enjoy. Because. love you all. Really I do..oh! and of course some videos from the Gay Pride Parade including the Free the Foreskin folks! Free foreskins? I am SO there!

Drag March in Tompkins my fave rave event!

So Friday was the drag march from Tompkins to Stonewall Inn and though I skipped the march part due to an opening at the Living Gallery I wanted to see I did hang out several hours before they left the park to head west. COSTUMES, WIGS, TWERKING, PARTIAL NUDITY, MAKEUP! I love this so much. I took some video but I am just too short and I think the 15 or so pics I will post will give a pretty good idea of the vibe in Tompkins as the drag march posed and pranced around the place. I don't even bother dressing up nothing is as insane and great as what these folks pull off...
Evgrieve has some great pro pics too taken by my friend Stacie Joy.

New Art by Robert Crumb! Samantha Bee! Offensive shirt!










So lots of things happening...thought I would post a few of them on here at 1 am! Whee! The top art by R Crumb is actually a great watercolor and it is up for auction at Heritage Auctions now. Bidding ends in august I think and starts at 50k which is a steal for Robert Crumb original art so sell your firstborn and buy it! Make us rich rich RICH! Here is the link...you have to sign in and sign up to bid. So not sure it works but you can cut and paste it. https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/robert-crumb-coney-island-baby-cover-original-art-east-river-records-2017-/p/7189-58001.s?ic4=GalleryView-Thumbnail-071515
The Crumb art below is just for our private collection...Daddy Stovepipe on Maxwell street. I think there is a Jamba Juice there now. Sigh. I have been told I need to promote more and talk about Crumb more but I would prefer to post other stuff too..and give my friends equal time. I won a raffle prize to see Samantha Bee and Mark Kelly speak at the 92y so my friend Simona and I went and it was great. Love her so much. And there was a 7 foot guy on the train behind me so Simona snuck a pic.
Then I met another friend and spent the day in Prospect park and the best thing we saw was a baby turtle sunning it's legs on a rock.
The best thing I saw in Tompkins square was Dave wearing his new shirt. Can you tell he makes them himself? DIY all the way ten punk points! A lot going on and its hard to keep up when I am writing a book and also recording and getting ready to leave NYC for the south of france in two weeks now. But I am trying! Last year of this blog then I archive it all...sniff...the times they are a changing...unlike my underthings.

If her daddy's rich take her out for a meal if her daddy's poor just do what you feel!

I love that song but man those lyrics...but I do love summer and it's about here!
Had some crazy times this week and this past weekend but it's so much work to upload videos and stuff and with working on my book and a short story right now it's making me really lazy about this blog. Well it is on its last year so I guess it doesn't have to be too exciting. I can go out with a whimper!
Here is some random weird stuff though around the hood...I do love my new computadora it's so fast and clean! So fresh and SO clean!
That converse was size 16. I could fit 8 of my feet in there! You know what they say about big feet and cavernous vaginas! My new favorite restaurant is Ho Foods. I feel really at home there. Some graffiti at C squat...some guy crapping in the park while checking out his manicure...a kale smoothie or nuclear radiation in the park too..you decide! My friend and his cute puppy and me and some scary giant bear that's been running around lately.
Just little snippets from around the park and such...I have so much more but I am going to watch the Tony Awards cause John is working them tonight. Is it weird I am REALLY excited to be going to see Frozen with my Swedish nieces in August? More excited than they probably are?

Aline Crumb at Housing Works Bookshop last month.

Late belated post from Aline Crumb's Book tour and signing in NYC. Been swamped lately but I will have lots of france posts up soon to make everyone green with envy or green from vomiting.
Aline has a new book out and came through NYC a few weeks ago and I went to see her speak at Housing Works Bookshop which I always forget is this great place with tons of good books and nice people volunteering there. I also hung with Aline just about every day eating sushi, gossiping and people watching at The Fancy Bowery Hotel which was full of celebs and richies. I was happy to find my pic on the back of the book- the second photo down and another cartoonist drew us all which was cool. Some freaky characters showed up for this event and it was pretty funny but it was the last leg of her tour and after the signing we bolted to fancy hotel to eat and pass out. Aline gets up at 6am and does two hours of yoga every day and I sleep til noon but somehow I was tired too! It's a hard knock life! Also took a few videos of her Q and A and more. I love Aline to pieces. We leave in a month for France to check out the construction on our new house there across from the Crumbs and to finish recording our next album and to see Sophie and her kids and relax. Can't wait! Our house is FREAKING BEAUTIFUL NOW WE HAVE BEEN TOLD!

NYC Dance Parade was rain or shine mostly rain with some shine and fun as fuck!

The annual Dance parade was this past weekend and though it rained it was still the most fun event of the year. I actually woke up early to see the floats for once but it was pouring out....so I watched a movie with John who is off work for weeks now YAY! and by the time I got outside it was NOT raining and there they all were! Smaller than usual of course but two stages were going strong with the groups performing and the free dance space with the pirate ship and DJ were going full force. I took a ton of pics and videos as usual and danced for hours with all kinds of crazy people. When I dropped out of a conga line the Dance Police gave me a ticket for not dancing...sob..which was actually a pass to get in to Nublu cheap that night but I was actually too tired to even try. So happy it was going on still and now the weather is great every day. We leave for France so soon I can't believe it but still plenty of time to do all kinds of fun weird NYC stuff now that it is finally spring. There's so much stuff this month I can't even post it all...I am just too lazy/busy doing other stuff so I will just post the most fun goings on.
