Tree Lighting at Tompkins , the Ick and Marc Jacobs new R. Crumb line!

Been sick with the ick for a week now but still busy w78 Going to be warmer soon though so yay! So I took videos today at the Tompkins tree lighting but since I upgraded my phone I don't know how to get them on my throwaway youtube account I use for this blog. So no countdown video on this post but LET ME TELL YOU SHIT WAS SLAMMING!
No, not really- but this event is fun for kids...saw half the people I know there and had a good time. So I will post the few pics I took...thinking this would be a video themed blog I don't even have a pic of the lit tree haha...and some other pics like me sick at home with my cat AND  Robert Crumb has a new clothing line out with Marc Jacobs now! I swear Crumb gets more famous every year somehow. The Crumbs will be in NYC in January for a big exhibit of Robert's work at the David Zwirner Gallery so it will be good to see them both.
So here are some pics of today and other next post blog will be soon and will also be the last one most likely...promotion for our new album that is out on vinyl next week. Seems like a good note to end this thing on after over 9 years! Thanks to all my readers-I got more than I ever expected to get thanks to EvGrieve and Jeremiah and others...Even went viral a few times! And thanks to Bob Arihood who told me no girls are blogging the hood and I should get on that. RIP my friend.

Ahhh! Last month before the blog ends for good in December!

So I am ending this blog on Jan 1st. Maybe earlier. As you can see by my last post being 3 weeks ago I am way too busy for this with a new dog walking business, music stuff, writing and more. It has been 9 years and it is time to end it. I shall archive it all so nothing will get permanently deleted. I can access pics still if people want them and posts still etc. But I think no one really needs anything from it, Maybe the Crumb post that went viral. A few of my posts went viral which was a nice surprise.
So this post is like all weird stuff I have seen and done this month and I am just going to throw it all up on here for ya..too tired to really organize it all and going to see the new Cohen Brothers movie soon. Hanging with the hubby on his days off. We got the Bloomingdales window display...Mosaic Man on the Anthony Bourdain special along with Harley from the Cro-Mags getting interviewed by Bourdain at C squat. That was on April 4th and I was happy to meet him before he offed himself a few weeks later. And the Weed Candy truck by Union Square. The pics are so at Palms Steakhouse with John for their cartoon walls. Joff Wilson jamming with a cop in the park haha...John helping me out this week with all the dogs I have now to walk...friend broke her ankle so I took on all hers too and some cats. Crazy week! A dirty rubber boob laying on the ground. Sniff. A cat named Ambien and my older sister Gena has now legally adopted two new niece who is adorable with chunky cheeks is Sophie and her sister is Anya. She is pretty happy.
Other stuff went on...I narcanned someone who was Oding on Ave A and woke him up..but sadly he died a week or so later. But that was intense...I guess I saved his life for an extra week. I got trained in how to use narcan cause all I see are people Oding all day long. Now I can try and save them.
New Lp out next week...excited about blog will be all promo so sorry about that! Gotta selll those LPs!

BLOG that spells moon!

If you get that title reference you are a Stephen King fan. I love Halloween, love that all they are playing is horror movies now on TV though I have seen just about all of them...Even the new Sabrina show was hysterical. SHE WORSHIPS SATAN(spoiler)!
John has barely been home he is swamped with work from that Wicked Special airing this week to some Apple thing he is doing at BAM in bk. So I have been hanging out, taking care of stuff and walking dogs for dough. Show in the park tomorrow with my friends and the GLOB-blood wresting which is funny and my friends band is starting off the show so I will be there all day. Halloween I go see World Inferno as usual at Warsaw. Always a fun time esp when I get to be backstage haha...
Here are some pics of I don't even remember..great halloween costumes at Kmart...PIZZA IS SLUTTY WE ALL KNOW THIS. The bright police lights are still up on 7th st...a nice drawing a fan did of John...The Connor's used Keep on Truckin' as the title of their fat adorable cat...the cutest puppy around, Nancy. Some funny Citizen app cousin Rachel who was in NYC taking a pic of my parents on the upper east side for brunch...That is about it. I think our new double album arrives first week of Nov so that is exciting...I will be doing A LOT of promo for it on fb and twitter so block me now before it's too late! Actually a lot of people are waiting on this double album so that is cool. I get emails every few days about it. Nice that people are interested! I think the amazing watercolor Crumb art has a lot to do with that BUT we do have our ow fans too which is swell! May try and play at Coney Island Baby for a release party...or jalopy most likely. We shall see! Life is swell hope the swelling doesn't go down!

Police shut down the Abracadabra School Bus tonight on Avenue A.

The park was fun today and I have been busy and really needed to have a hang out with friends there where I know almost every person in the place. I saw a gay wedding...was beautiful. A rock the vote concert and of course all my buddies from the drunk bench folks to the frisbee and football crew to the birders and dog run pals. I feel like the mayor of the place sometimes and the halloween punk show is going to be a blast.
But today when the Abracadabra school bus showed up at 7 like always to play live music as they have been monthly for the past few years the police showed up and shut the whole thing down. Said there have been complaints and the whole set up needs permits including the bus itself. Hopefully they will get tis worked out but I fear the hippie bus days are over for now...maybe by spring they will be back.
I just read Paul Watkins book My Life with Manson so the fact that it got shut down during Helter Skelter was kinda creepy. I will miss it but it was already a little too cold for me today to be out there at 8pm dressed up and dancing. Is it winer already??
Here are some fun videos and one of the cops ending the music.

Benefit for Kid Lucky at C squat.

Last weekend we had a huge benefit at Morus Museum and Csquat, my second home, to try and raise money for his medical bills as he has cancer. C has never had a two day thing like this going on and some of his friends worked really hard to put this together...booked about 30 people I think! Lucky has been around the scene for decades now and is a super nice guy and a great beatboxer and performer. He made it over a few times and got to see Doug E Fresh perform on Sunday night which was great. I worked the  door with John and random other friends both days for hours and by Sunday night it finally really got going...before that it was a little quiet...I guess so much was going on that day and night this event fell by the wayside...but by the end we made decent money and I took some videos of the crazier times of the whole thing. Saw a lot of people I haven't seen for a long time and met some new ones while working the show for so long. Was a nice effort for a good guy who has had a bad streak of luck heath wise but is doing better now.
