Police shut down the Abracadabra School Bus tonight on Avenue A.

The park was fun today and I have been busy and really needed to have a hang out with friends there where I know almost every person in the place. I saw a gay wedding...was beautiful. A rock the vote concert and of course all my buddies from the drunk bench folks to the frisbee and football crew to the birders and dog run pals. I feel like the mayor of the place sometimes and the halloween punk show is going to be a blast.
But today when the Abracadabra school bus showed up at 7 like always to play live music as they have been monthly for the past few years the police showed up and shut the whole thing down. Said there have been complaints and the whole set up needs permits including the bus itself. Hopefully they will get tis worked out but I fear the hippie bus days are over for now...maybe by spring they will be back.
I just read Paul Watkins book My Life with Manson so the fact that it got shut down during Helter Skelter was kinda creepy. I will miss it but it was already a little too cold for me today to be out there at 8pm dressed up and dancing. Is it winer already??
Here are some fun videos and one of the cops ending the music.

Benefit for Kid Lucky at C squat.

Last weekend we had a huge benefit at Morus Museum and Csquat, my second home, to try and raise money for his medical bills as he has cancer. C has never had a two day thing like this going on and some of his friends worked really hard to put this together...booked about 30 people I think! Lucky has been around the scene for decades now and is a super nice guy and a great beatboxer and performer. He made it over a few times and got to see Doug E Fresh perform on Sunday night which was great. I worked the  door with John and random other friends both days for hours and by Sunday night it finally really got going...before that it was a little quiet...I guess so much was going on that day and night this event fell by the wayside...but by the end we made decent money and I took some videos of the crazier times of the whole thing. Saw a lot of people I haven't seen for a long time and met some new ones while working the show for so long. Was a nice effort for a good guy who has had a bad streak of luck heath wise but is doing better now.

I have to pee.

Ah I just noticed my commenting was messed up. Sorry anyone who left a comment! I haven't been too great at keeping up with this blog lately. I hate that word. BLOOOOOOOG. It is a WEB LOG see how that rolls off the tongue?
So I went to a dozen things and have seen a million things and I am lazy but I will post some videos on here from Circus Amok in the park which is always cool. There was also an "upcycled" fashion show in La Plaza which was fun. Both these events had tons of kids at them and it's fun to see my friends little ones enjoying the same craziness I am enjoying. End of summer means NYC is really amped with events before it's too cold to enjoy being outside and the air hurts your face.
I think this first video is the best...was trying to get to a friends baby shower in Queens and when I walked by Whole Foods there was an opossum in the middle of the street on Houston almost getting hit by cars. It was SO scary and I ran into the street with other people and then it hid behind this guy in the doorway who has no reaction whatsoever. Heh. I called Ranger Rob and he came and boxed it up and we took it to the park across the street where it likely came from. One video is a puking puppet that was pretty good too. Dave has a new shirt...I played Rock and Roll Bingo and won some weird stuff...the streets are full of items of interest. Who needs that horrible Target when we have this stuff?

Giant Mr. Natural Crumb statue for sale! Only 5 in the world!

These pics are of the giant Mr. Natural statue that is being sold in the Galerie in France. Only five were made and will be made and the Galerie has 3! So while it is not cheap it IS an insane collectors item! I think it is almost 3 feet tall...maybe 2 and a half across...not exactly sure! You can contact the Galerie at galerievidourle@gmail.com for more info about this super rare collectors dream statue! Why did my font get so small here? Help!

Mob 47 at C squat...NYC smells like K2 and pee.

I took a training course on how to administer Narcan the other day...just a quick one with the nasal spray and the shot. I just can't take walking by all these people dying on the streets and turning blue and the EMT's being called and everyone standing around hoping the person doesn't die. It's not that hard to use a nasal spray and it can save a life. Shot isn't that bad either if I can check my cats blood sugar levels every 3 days I can give a muscle shot to a passed out person.
Anyway enough about how fentanyl and K2 is jut about killing everybody lately! I worked the door at a big show at C...Swedish Band Mob 47 played and it was packed...and fun as fuck. Life has been wacky since I got back and I am glad another heat wave is coming. Can't believe it's September now and I am ending this blog 3 months! That was the plan for years now and it really makes sense now as I am just too busy for this...writing and rewriting my book is going to be years and this little funny blog did it's job. I think Bob Arihood would agree it's time to stop.
So here is some stuff....always stuff I am just FULL of stuff...and will just keep on posting this stuff until it is done. Not the stuff...the blog. Blogs are so 2009 now.
First the baby hawk who has been sick off and on but seemed to be okay today when I saw him/her eating a dead thing. Some pics from the 80th anniversary of B&H Dairy...some weird shit on the street..oh those college kids throw out the darnedest things...Jerry Faust enjoying the Charlie Parker jazz fest with Four Loko in a beer cozy...McDonalds is looking pretty good there on 1st Avenue..and Heston was correct. Soylent Green is made out of Gluten free people.

A Tasting at Ray's Candy Store.

I missed this event last year cause I was in France but this was really funny and fun..Matt Rosen organized a tasting event at Ray's and people came by for two hours and sampled fries, fried oreos and other staples of the place. People asked to get their pic taken with Ray who was in the back making the food and that rainbow poster is hilarious...as Ray once commented on Big Gay Ice Cream and how maybe he should change the name of his shop to Big Gay Ray's Candy Store.
All in all a nice event on a slow Monday that brought in a lot of people.
Tonight is the 80th anniversary of B&H Dairy and they are having a party/tasting too...not THAT should be pretty crazy I imagine! Will try to get a few pics there too when I walk by with John for a few minutes.

Last of the pics from summer with the Crumbs in France!

I am so backed up cause I have been out every night since I got back but I want to get the rest of the France pics up tonight..so I can move on and get back to some NYC stuff. Crazy show at C squat with Mob 47 the other night...I was happy to work the door cause it was ONE MILLION DEGREES DOWNSTAIRS. Last night there was a David Bowie dance party and film night at Morus and that was crazy fun too...Since I got back I have slapped people awake who are nodding out on the street and in the dog run...it wakes them up and its fun! I don't want the dogs to end up in kill shelters if the drugged out kid gets taken away by an ambulance. I guess this is my new thing now. At least I wake them up.
Pretty much back into the NYC groove now though this K2 shit seems to have gotten way worse. 90 people OD'd in CT? Killing in a park near me over it? WTF is going on?
Anyhooch, here are some more France pics...gotta move on from the great vacation!
There are probably some doubles here but I wanted to get the weird stuff up that I saw at the brocante in Sauve when it was like 102 out and I was passing out from the heat but coudn't help but look at all the weird crap. That food truck had the best burgers I have ever had. Happy I am back at the gym though and lost 5lbs since I have returned! My winter is going to be working, working out and writing. Can't ask for any more fun than that except for when I go out and get blacked out drunk! Too bad the wine here is undrinkable to me now after France.
