Some wedding pics from City Hall two weeks ago










So John and I got married on June12th at City Hall...party will be in France in a few weeks so it was just a small, family thing with a few close friends. Here are some photos and even a video of the ceremony!
Saying my goodbye's this week as I will be gone for all of July and half of August starting next week. Shooting a music video with Crumb in France, recording and doing some podcasts out there. Then back to NYC for a week. then Vermont to play at my best friends wedding and then straight to Rhode Island for a week at a beach resort place with John's family in from Sweden.
I CANNOT WAIT! This summer has been fun but the weather really blows...it is not raining in Sauve every other day and it's in the 80's with amazing waterfalls and beaches.
Here is the video of the vows...

TEAM WEINER!







Holy crap I have so many pics and videos I need to upload on here from my iphone and my camera it's just overwhelming me so I will just do bunches at once. It is just too damn nice out to be on a computer for long and I have been going non-stop since the middle of the week. Getting ready for a gig and making lists of what to pack for France for July...John is at the Grand Canyon filming that guy who is going to try and walk across it on Sunday. Apparently there are 40 mph winds there so....hide your childrens eyes quick if he falls cause there is no harness or net.
First we see someone defaced a mailbox with a nice note. Would have been funny if they caught them and threw them in jail. IT WON'T GET BETTER IN JAIL NOW WILL IT?
Then Dave with a shirt..then ME with one of our new band tanks tops! YIPPEE! Then the whipping guy whipping stuff in the park. Sort of surprised the cops don't bother him but then again that pic is over a week old now.
Then the tree got smashed outside of Three of Cups last night. CAN YOU STAND THIS MUCH EXCITEMENT FOLKS?
A bouquet was left on a cop car last night too..and TEAM WEINER has been out and about all day!
Heading back to Tompkins now to see some brass bands. Will try to post more often before it becomes all South of France posts!

Ray gets a new lease but also A SHOWER, A NEW HAIRCUT AND IS NOW CALLED RAY'S OLD GAY ICE CREAM STORE.



I went by Ray's tonight to take a quick video and ask about his lease. Unfortunately, I have been on a drunken bender and left my camera at home. So I used my iphone and it broke the video up into two overlapping parts cause it was too long. However, when you watch them I am sure you will agree that this is the video you have been waiting for. SHOCKING NEWS about a name change coming to the store! INCREDIBLE stories about getting a new shirt!
THESE VIDEOS ARE NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART.
If you have small children please make them leave the room before watching.
Also, i want that crazy grilled cheese painting out front still!

Photos and videos from Howl Fest 2013!

Ran over to Tompkins to catch the last day of the Howl festival on Sunday...while I missed seeing Carla Rhodes and my the Liza Colby Sound by getting a lot of much needed sleep, I did manage to see some of the art canvases and the awesome Low Life drag show. Pics and videos vary in shakiness depending on how many people are standing in front of me blocking my view and how much I am giggling. Videos include Lydia Lunch yelling at everyone!








Short post about ReOccupy Wall Street.




Here are a few pics I took at Liberty Park on Saturday afternoon. I went down there for a few hours then came back uptown to make the Howl Fest and other fun stuff. Too many things going on at the same time and Facebook is the only thing helping me remember what is happening and when at this point! Doctor's appointments, paperwork for my damn marriage on the 12th! REALLY finishing up our new album which Dom Flemons is now co-producing for us which is FUCKING AWESOME. So many exciting things coming up and I leave town for the summer in less than five weeks.
So here is me with my joke shirt on down there..hardy har I AM SO FUNNY RIGHT?
Then some protestors, a shot of the crowd which thinned out considerably after what I hear was a march of about 1,000 people..and SEQUESTER the boardgame!
I have some pics and videos from Howl I will post tomorrow. I am in a haze from non-stop running around and all kinds of craziness but I did manage to remember to take some footage of stuff!

AHHHH! It has hit SUMMER TIME and I am at my happiest! I sleep very little and run around all day and night raising a ruckus! I have some footage on my fancy new camera i need to upload from the Howl Festival...took most of it today. Hit the Occupy rally...saw some old friends from long ago...just a fun crazy week and weekend and I need to catch up on here soon!
First the banner for Howl from a few days ago..the the Rent is Too Damn High guy has been cruising around in that damn car every night blasting music. He seems to be able to afford a lot!
Then Dave at the dog run doing his thing...a sign on the Jucy Lucy's wall..did i mention I love this organic juice place? They have a bench out front and I can people watch and run into tons of people sitting there.And finally our last gig in NYC for a while as I leave town in a month. Jalopy guitar night with some amazing folks!
