He's Just Out There on His Own 

I don't see enough of my friend David.




But until February 17, me, you and everyone we know can catch him on loop in a Cammi Climaco video installation at Silo's last exhibition from Freeman's Alley, "To be Continued".

Lots o' goodness to be had. Takers?

my week *ow ow ow ow ow ad infinitum edition* 

really, there wasn't much going on this week that didn't involve miss jacquie o, and her incessant birthday partying. so this is a photo ode to 'o' if you will. friday night we met up for a pre-game warmup, but instead it cooled down, and started snowing. the first real snow of the year. (sorry for the redundancy for those of you that have seen the flickr page. but jac's party WAS my week.)


tom is an aspiring electrician. he could re-wire your entire apartment if you'd let him. your lights might not work, but it would be funny somehow.


dude, remember in saigon in '68 when you dropped all that acid and tripped balls and danced all night. AWESOME! oh wait, that was in new york...? two weeks ago...?


back to new york, and jacquie's b-day. these are more acid casualties from jacquie's offical party at 'sweet paradise' on saturday night.


birthday girl in all her camo gear.


hold me!


and the party continued. unfortunately barbara and i missed brunch on sunday, but made it out to dinner on monday. as always, tom was just happy to be there.


thumbs up soldier! another smash(ed)ing birthday success!

Answer the phone and follow the directions from the 'operator' to play the game.

The Birth of a New Doll 

A new website has come to my attention for all those park slope crafty lesbian moms out there. The Amamanta anatomically correct dolls allow parents to teach their child in the ways of hot carls, pearl necklaces and according to the website "Investigate suspected sex abuse, child abuse or molestation," Aid forensic investigations and courtroom testimony" and "Educate children and people with disabilities about sex." I don't know about you but if my lawyer brought out one of these dolls and asked me if daddy touched me in the naughty place I'd probably ask him if he wanted to go grab a Happy Meal after I got out of prison. Check out these amazing Dolls

my week. *007: i have a dream edition* 

all that's left of 2006.


allow what?


...and give us this day, our daily bread, and a smashed tomato in nate's hand, and a strawberry margarita.


so jac, what'd you do last night? did you go out and...oh...sorry.


on thursday, my friend james call played at otto's shrunken head. this is one of many costumes that james wears onstage during his performances. how!


on friday night, jacquie, nate and i took vodka showers at the ruff club party at annex. afterwards we went for some pizza, but first jac had to get cash.


insufficient drunks.


on saturday night, jacquie o and nate and i went to see pan's labyrinth. a beautiful movie. one of my new favorites. very sad, yet uplifting at the same time. you'll want to take a trip to rainy spain, and also start to believe in magic. i'd highly recommend it to everyone. i then went to have dinner with natalie and the schillers. introducing CALVIN! let's everyone give him a nice warm welcome, as you'll all be seeing a lot more of him from now on.


we close out the MLK jr. three-day weekend with another night at max fish. hey everyone, remember the last time we went to max fish? me neither. but jac sure plays a mean pinball.

A Post Encouraging the Viewing of Pictures Showing What Happens on Each Page of Thomas Pynchon's Novel Gravity's Rainbow 




If you missed Zak Smith at the Whitney Biennial ('04), Tin House has just published his collected illustrations, hallucinations and basically crazy ass interpretations in Gravity's Rainbow Illustrated. Smith is a colorful character, so it's quite apropos that controversy should surround its publication.


Show some love for the porn star author and the little publishing house that could at the signing:

my week *thank heaven for 007, edition* 

so 2006 went out with a sobbing whimper. and i can't say i was sad to see it go. but before it ended in misery, it had quite the finale. nate rocked out with his...well...you get the idea.


andrew and i had a date at the garden. we saw stephon marbury beat the utah jazz with a layup at the buzzer. thanks andrew!


aw, look at the shiny happy people holding hands on a beautiful day at the park! or is it amoeba tag? whatever it is, the last person that hasn't been tagged is the winner. and remember, kids, second place is the first loser.


this is my cousin's daughter, lauren. she's nine, and loves puppies, and nature, and little romps around grandma's house.


...and bugs.


everyone was thrilled as new years came around. and you know what that means...masks!


i was quite happy to burn my mask, and all of the troubles that came along with it. so glad to see it go, and i'm so excited to delete the past, and start anew. good riddance.


my favorite part of flying back to new york.


the moon. at 30,000 feet. and a bed of clouds. not the best picture, but it means something to me. i've had my tantrum, and i'm really glad to be back in new york amongst my best friends in the world. here's wishing all of you LDTers a happy new year. and if you had a great year, or an awful year, or somewhere in between, i hope 2007 is even better for all of us. starting right now. let's do this.

Bring out your dead 

The Lower East Side Ecology Center is having an e-waste recycling day in Union Square on Sunday. Take your old tech stuff there to be recycled.
Why?
1. There's tons of toxic shit in all our technogeeky stuff and throwing it away means it goes to landfills and often ends up in water supplies.
2. That same stuff, those heavy metals etc, cost a lot (in money, and in environmental damage) to mine and manufacture and throwing that away means we have to dig out more of that out of the earth.

Stuff they take will include working and non-working:
- Computers (laptop & desktop), servers, mainframes
- Monitors
- Printers, scanners, fax-machines, copiers
- Network devices (routers,hubs, modems, etc.)
- Peripherals (keyboards, mice, cables,etc.)
- Components (hard drives, CDRoms, circuit boards, power supplies, etc,)
- TVs
- VCR & DVD Players
- Audio visual devices
- Radios/Stereos
- Cell Phones, pagers, PDAs
- Telecommunication (phones, answering machines, etc.)
They'll also take old CDs, DVDs, VHS and audio tapes and their cases (but they have to send these off somewhere else to get recycled, so if you take them, give a small donation).

More here.

Bonus points if you buy recycled disks etc from GreenDisk in future.

Double bonus points if you sign the Greenpeace petition telling Apple what c*nts they are for not doing more to reduce the toxic shit in, and help the recycling of, all the little shiny boxes we love.
