Convent Party

So I told the Vice readership all about the fun and crazy performance I was in last weekend at the St. Cecilia convent in Greenpoint. The performance at the convent was a great success and a total blast. Things got a little sloppy at the second performance at the Legion but everyone had a blast and if nothing else we confused the hell out of a lot of people.

I didn't get any pics of the actual performance because, well, I was in it, but the preparations were a blast. Pre-show shotguns in the convent basement:

A Question

Who advertises their nanny services atop a gravestone?
Well apparently someone on Graham Avenue does because this sign in the the window of the monument shop near Metropolitain. The grave makers also sell fresh bakery goods. For some reason buying bread from a gravestone purveyor seems unseemly, but maybe that's just me.

Two more things

Ryan Turner's Outcast collection dropped @ Urban Outfitters.

I blogged about it for Vice You Don't Have to Slam Junk to Wear Leather

I'm sick. And Europa is having an inspection so the downstairs will be closed so I won't be DJing the Saint Vitus show tonight, but of course I'm still dragging my half dead ass there. Can't be missed!

Check out my write-up at Vice as well (yes, yes I know, I need some original Reality No Show content soon.)

I heart Wino!!!!

Blogging about blogging on another blog

Ouch, I know. I am the anti-poacher too. Maybe it's a sensitivity to fashion blogs that are merely repostings of other fashion blogs or just image selections. I'm a grump, a writer. Not that my posts on here seem to consist of anything aside from links to my Vice posts. What can I say? Now that I'm quasi-professional I give them a lot of the goods. But even more, I can't say that I would ever interview someone for this blog, I'd feel like I was wasting their time. After all this is pretty much an exercise in me, my thoughts and opinions. But Vice has an actual readership that counts above the low hundreds and that makes it worthwhile to bug someone to talk to me about stuff I think is cool.

So I interviewed Jack from Endless Blockades about his awesome blog. Afterall, if I just reposted a few of my favorite awesome images that I found on his blog I'd be doing everything I hate. But what makes his site so addictive is that it relies on submissions as well as forums. It's not like some fashion blogs where someone just went to and picked out a few designer looks from the most recent fashion week. There is actual love, care, and time in seeking out these images from all over the world. And there is such pride in the submitters and makers.

Anyway, pointless rant aside, here's the link to my interview with Jack of Endless Blockades on Vice
