Halloween show in the park and shit.

Yesterday was really nice out for the annual Halloween show in Tompkins...there were going to be two shows actually but today is sort of hurricaning outside so it shall not come to pass. Maybe next week will be the rain date...Von LMO played and it was truly bizarre and though the crowd was small it was a fun show. I wish the shows would be as packed and crazy as they used to be back in the day. But at least I saw one fight and someone did OD on heroin which means it was a success!
Here are a few videos from that event and other random pics thrown in like the girl bowling whom everyone says is my evil twin...and a boxcutter blade that's been in the toilet at Tompkins for almost a week now. My friends had a sidewalk sale in front of Ray's Candy Store and displayed a giant rat with a huge slice of pizza... EXCITING STUFF PEOPLE! Oh, and the Cake Boss whoever the hell that is made a cake for the Day of the Dead fest at St. Marks Church. 
Halloween is going to fun at Warsaw with the World Inferno Friendship Society and their huge halloween shindig...I will likely escape the drunk parade of bros and sexy cats by spending the night out in BK with friends.

Annual Halloween Dog Run Parade in Tompkins Square Park! 2017!

oh my CHIRST ON A CRUTCH I have NEVER seen this event so packed! It took John and I almost half an hour to walk from 1st Ave into the park! We did not even attempt to watch the actual contest as the line to get into that part was a mile deep. I heard there were 25,000-30,000 people there!
We stuck it out and I got some fun pics and a video of the winner...
What a gorgeous day out too...could not ask for better unless I found a million dollars on the ground!
Such a fun October and next is Halloween which I love dearly.
There are crazy good pro pics out there I am sure...they will be up on soon I assume..but for now here are my iPhone pics and a short video. There really was a lot of cuteness going on there despite the fact that this event is just so hip now to go to. Lots of dragon dogs one with a barbie Khaleesi riding it...a martini conehead with olives, Pennywise and Gerogie...A SEXY  handmaid and her dog..and much more. And an added horse head by Ray's for added fun!

Honk NYC AND Zombie Crawl

So this past weekend was full of events and though I kinda have the beginning of a cold I went out to them...Honk fest NYC was in La Plaza and featured an all female marching band who were later joined by another marching band and we made our way to Avenue A to Drom bar for the after party which I skipped...I ended up on St Marks by Theatre 80 where I will be applying for work this week and was accosted by people dressed up like Zombies which was the Zombie Bar Crawl. It's cheesy and drunk but far better than Santa Con which is right around the corner so I joined them for a minute by doing the Thriller Dance.
I took some videos and some pics and it was all fun. Now I just need to take it easy and get ready to record with John and finish our new album finally....and work on not getting this flu everyone seems to have this week. Lots more stuff going on next weekend and of course Halloween is almost here. As  commercial as it is and as many Slutty Cats that will be out and about I still love Halloween. I plan on seeing World Inferno Friendship Society that night as usual. I's fun show and an escape from the insanity that will be going on all night when all the slutty cats will be puking on St Marks st and Avenue A too. I added in a cute pic of my friends son who was scared of the halloween decorations that are up at La Plaza now. He made me hit the witch for him. And also someone kinda wheat pasted a memorial for people who have died on the corner of Avenue A and east 5th st. I don't know who did this...Emily Mullen is there on the top right, Bob Arihood, David Peel, Adam Purple, Cowboy Stan, Spike...Erin O'Connor....not sure of the others...

Mike Diana closing party at Art on A.

Mike Diana is an underground cartoonist and artist whose work got him thrown in jail in Florida i believe some time ago. On grounds of it being obscene or some such nonsense. When I worked at Forbidden Planet a decade ago with John I read all his Boiled Angel comics and loved them.

I hit up his closing reception at Wendigo Art On A space which always has some cool stuff going on. 
I have a lot of stuff to post on here but that 85 degree weather made me just not want to be online too much. One good thing about winter is I am a lot more productive and am indoors a lot more. When it's summer out I walk one block, run into 12 people I know and end up who knows where doing who knows what at some weird event. Which I love but I am trying to write a book, learn guitar for real, and also find some part time work which I am pretty close to doing I think. And record with John of album needs some tweaking.
So here is a video of the art event and some pics...He's a nice guy and I am glad he's still out there doing his thing. Here is his WIKI page too with his info.

My niece's birthday party upstate...I RODE A FUCKING PONY AT LAST!

On Sunday John and I rented a car and drove my parents upstate to attend my niece's birthday party who is two years old now. There was a PONY and a bouncy castle and my sister is not too into having many pics of her daughter on the internet just yet. I just have a couple. People who insist their underage kids have fb pages are scary and weird...that site is full of pedophiles and sick fucks who prey on kids and teens. However a few om my blog here is okay as I don't have THAT many creepy readers, just a few perhaps!
Most teens are not interested in Fb anymore really...too many new sites cropping up I cant even keep track of them all. Nor do I want to as I am not 12. Pinterest and all that seem like the biggest waste of time ever. My web stuff is more than enough...Not sure I need snapchat and all the rest.
But I did take some pics and videos too OF THE PONY and all that. My mom blessedly passed out in the car so that was a nice bonus. All in all it was fun and my niece is adorable. It was beautiful up there and we walked around an abandoned mansion next door..The Belvedere. Long drive back but I got to sing along with some Yacht Rock 70's music for about two hours which John LOVED OH HOW HE LOVED IT! The hot redhead on the horse is my sister Gena whose house we were at.
