Fly's Birthday at Morus Museum!

So my friend and talented cartoonist/artist that I have known for decades had a little party at Csquat over the weekend. She painted the ABC No Rio mural and has a book out called Peops where she profiles people she knows who lead interesting lives and have stories to tell. She has "peoped" me and many of my friends cause we are all artistic weirdos and most have lived in squats as she does.
I will post some pics of the shindig which was actually at Morus the museum part of the building. The band Banji played and me and others bought pizza pies and other stuff. Jerry Faust the infamous drunk guy I have known forever somehow made it over there and was yelling the whole time and ate the whole pizza i bought i think but it just added to the crazy. Later on the party moved to the basement and went on for hours...it was 65 degrees out and really felt like spring. Gotta run we got some record people coming over as it's a 78rpm kinda night....

Aker Awards with Clayton Patterson! VD!

Today is VD which is a day I have always liked for some reason. Even when single I would walk around with a wilted flower in my hand looking sad just for fun. I also like the other made up love day The Sweetest Day but that's more of a northern thing I guess. I have been harassing John all day with horrible gross texts because he had to work but he gets home at 5 and we will partake in some fancy dead fish my fave! The we will have Sex-o!
Sunday night was the annual Aker Awards for artists in the hood of note and John and I were two of the 40 recipients. Fun fun night and I knew about half the people there...felt like the old east village/lower east side again for a night. I have crappy iPhone pics I will post along with the list of the winners..we each got a pizza box full of 40 items one from each of the other artists. We gave some CDs and some LPs which people seemed pretty happy about. I made a speech that was just me giggling and saying Thanks and Fuck Trump! Lincoln Anderson won one for journalism and my friend Cheryl was in the music category with John and I. The box is full of art, poetry, posters, music, a sex toy, and other fun stuff!

Glitter Gutter! Snow! Freaks! Poop! What Have You!

Today was the BLIZZARD OF 2017 but all I know is I woke up at noon and it was about done and it was fun to walk around in until John got off work early and we could play guitar. He's happy about it!
Quick post before I go back to that..hit The Slipper Room for a show last night that my friend Holly got us into for free and it was great...Glitter Gutter is a mix of weird shit and burlesque and i got to see my favorite freak Mat Fraser strip down to a thong taking off even the huge fake arms he had on as a joke. I hate American Horror Story but I love Mat and his girl Julie Atlas who has been around forever. So here are some pics from that show and a few other ones I have had on my desktop for weeks now. I loved the dancer who shoved her entire fist into her mouth too. Plus the host cracked me up for some reason and I could not stop giggling at every thing he said. I will post more Trump in the future but man do I need a break!
So we have some fun spam I get about 20 times a day about pooping...Why won't Ken Burns leave me and my poop alone?? A UFO lamp I got John for his birthday which was on the 7th...best part is the cow it's beaming up...that movie marquee was changed for the show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt which is a funny as fuck show...and John and I will be getting an Akers Award along with 39 other artists in various fields this sunday at Theatre 80 so that should be fun. Clayton Patterson will be giving them out as he does every year and it's nice to get one this year as local east village musicians...I will blog about that next unless something more exciting happens like I poop more than twice a day!

Stonewall Inn Rally today!

Okay I said no more protest posts for a while but the Stonewall Rally today was great! John and I walked over at 3ish and it was packed! I took a short video that some which got shared a ton on Twitter so I wish I took more but here are some pics from today and I will throw is some of the hilarious jokes about the Bowling Green Massacre that still have be fucking cracking up. Gotta find some humor in this Brave New Horrible World! I am easy to spot in the crowd as my dumb unicorn hat is the warmest thing I own.

TRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMP! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Okay so I have been going to pretty much every march and rally in my hood and down by Wall St and up by Trump Towers and everything is crazy and all the pics I have to post start to look the same so I have taken some of the funnier signs that I like at these events. With it being too cold to do outside work for the union I basically write(yay!), play guitar(A LOT!) and go protest that orange rectal cancer that is ruining the world. I will post some pics and the new few posts will be more fun stuff...I do hit comedy shows here and there and I see friends all the time of course. There was a rally with speakers in Tompkins a few days ago and that was pretty packed. Wait until the weather is warm if it's this crazy now! So happy to see this country rising up in protest still!
This weekend there is a rally at Stonewall I will hit up but I am going to be seeing friends and drinking wine and taking a little break before I burn out too soon.
Lots of good stuff happening to with the band and our new album and such and we are receiving an Akers Award from Clayton Patterson along with 39 other local artists on Feb 12th. That will be held at theater 80 on St Marks so that will be fun. Also, Activist Barbie™!
