Mommy, What's A Squatter?

Wotta week wotta week....Well so much went on this week..some bad some good...I was going to post some pics of the Mr. LES Pageant which tried to happen a few days ago but when the Slipper Room canceled at the last minute it was held at a karaoke bar in Chinatown and it got shut down within two acts. Due to nudity and a possibly fake/real fight that broke out during Master Lee's set AKA Chink Floyd. It was not the right venue for the insanity so some people stayed and drank while others moved on to Clockwork Bar where they sort of had a show outdoors. Then I went to a vigil in Union Square after the Brussels attack and took some pics but I decided I would just post up a few pages of a hilarious book my sister Robyn made for me years ago.
John and I have been spring cleaning like crazy and I finally found this funny. It was the hit of Csquat when I had my room there!
Then I like this pic of me trying to flip John off when he was laughing at my beauty treatment. Hey-it works! The bottom pics are the moon and also a blurry Jupiter through the telescope of Felton Davis who was set up by the Bean as usual when cool stuff is going on in space.
John and I played on Radio Free Brooklyn on Wednesday night which was fun. They are in bushwick in the basement of a bike shop. It's an internet station which never goes off the air. I think overnight when no one is there they play Democracy Now and stuff like that that was aired earlier that day.
I have more pics to post up but it's Saturday and beautiful out so John and I are going to go wander and catch a movie. I am getting super excited for April when we play the Brooklyn  Folk fest on the 10th then catch an early flight to London the next day to play the Art & Beauty opening at the David Zwirner Gallery. We are staying at the infamous Groucho Club hotel..only 20 rooms all for the rich and famous. That will be an experience in and of itself for me! I already heard the private gig guest list includes Stella McCartney and Terry Gilliam whom I love! This will be something else and I will take ton of pics...if Sir Elton John shows I refuse to play though. THAT IS JUST PUSHING IT.

Persian Spring Rituals in La Plaza last night!

Satan worshipping is so 80's! Why not go over to La Plaza Cultural Garden and jump over some fires for spring in a non satanic ritual? It can't hurt! Which is what I did and WHEEE! It was fun! Here are some pics I took there..and some pics my friend Cashman took of me and a few videos too! In one I chicken out and jump to the side which is bad luck so they made me jump again. Heh. What can I say? The flames were as tall as my neck! Little kids and their parents were jumping and then someone burned a wreath which sizzled and went up like mad. Really fun annual neighborhood event! Lots of fun crazy shit going on all spring and it's all starting now. Like the Mr LES pageant Reverend Jen hosts every year and it's even back in the LES this year! I cant wait to judge all the smelly testicles on stage! That's on the 21st at the Slipper Room.
Anytrump, here are the stuffs!

A Grower not a Shower.

It's been a while but I got the death flu and it lasted about a good week and a half this month so that was not so nice however it was cold and all the time inside practicing was good for me. I run wild when its warm and I upped my guitar skills a lot plus got some writing done too which I put down after hitting a writer's block. Also started over studying my French as its hard when I have no Frenchies to practice on here. Things are really good though and I am well just I'm time for the nice weather coming up. I cannot complain about a single thing! John has some time off work lately we wandered around the hood a bit.
That first pic is the new flyer for the 3 day Brooklyn Folk Fest coming up in five weeks. We play Sunday at 7:30 and will be there all 3 nights. All our friends from Jalopy are playing PLUS two members of the Fugs will be there! I won't go into politics on here at all because its making everyone crazy but saw this sticker on a phone booth today...the monster pic is from Union Square theatre..been seeing a ton of movies lately. Loved the Witch.
Then next is a blurb from a book a fan wrote. It's called Fat Man Blues and the author just threw us in there cause he likes us. SPEAKING OF BOOKS SOMEONE LOVES THE PENIS. Then we have what looked like a giant cell phone case of jesus followed by some great advertising from the Taoist Art Center. First there is a penis then there is no penis then there is? ZEN PENIS.
