HONK NYC Marching Bands!

Today several marching bands left from the Lower East Side Girl's Club and paraded around the LES making stops at Tompkins Square Park and then at Morus Museum at Csquat. Since those are two places I am at almost every day I caught them there and here are a few videos! Been loving this weather this week and our new album is getting crazy amounts of pre-orders online. I have had my many minions stickering up the hood with our old stickers from our first album as we are getting shipped about 500 of the new album stickers next week. Everywhere you walk you will soon find my giant ass staring at you! ARE YOU READY FOR THAT CAUSE I AM!
Videos are very dark as it was dark out but you can see some dancing and fun in the camera flashes.

PHOTOGRAPHS OF STUFF





Just some random stuff I had in my phone...I wish I had a real camera to get that willow tree better. All creepy with blackbirds perched on the branches. That sticker under it tells the truth. Your jeweler AIN'T shit!
Then my long lost Aunt nancy was in town last week. I haven't seen her since I was maybe 10 years old! That pup is Mr Sugar one of my sister Robyn's little dogs. She has about 4 of them now and a crazy bird that bites me whenever I come over.
And last but not least, that skinny as hell mannequin was thrown out on my block. Do you know how much willpower it took me to not bring that thing home with me??
I had death flu 2000 for over a week and I feel okay now which means I can start going out again. Yay! I guess I am ready for the fall. I did a lot and saw a lot this summer and have about 4 projects going on with John and the band so I need to buckle down and find work and just put some dough towards putting out the albums and books we have been working on.
Our new album comes out Oct 29th and I am so excited! I mailed about 100 copies off the various people and magazines for review and that also means we get a check from our distro coming in every few months or so if it sells well. DOLLAR BILL YA'LL!!

My new custom built small bodied Fraulini Guitar!

As a sort of surprise gift John had asked our friend Todd Cambio to build me a small bodied guitar cause my old Stella was bad ass but the action was just too high for me to play especially since I am a beginner pretty much. Todd builds copies of old guitars that look and sound better than the real thing! Crumb did his logo for him and most of our friends own a Fraulini of some sort...including members of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and even Crumb has an old mandolin Todd fixed up for him.
I got involved and told Todd to make my guitar as crazy as he wanted to..the crazier the better. And it is amazing! Inlay has a skull, heart, bottle of booze and the words "slum goddess" on the frets..it's got pink leopard, it's my size, it's just amazing! I get my hands on it next week and the real work begins for me!
