Rocket From the Crypt

Posted on April 3, 2014 by

Last night I saw Rocket From the Crypt for the first time, and it was awesome. I bought Live From Camp X-Ray at Virgin Records in Times Square on a chorus field trip in high school to some musical I don’t think I ended up really enjoying. This was right around the time or just […]

Competitive Winter Picnicking

Posted on January 19, 2014 by

Today I participated in my first ever winter picnic. However, it was a bit more interesting than your average summer picnic since this one happened to be competitive, and also costumed. From the organizers: Competitive Winter Picnicking was an idea that, over a serious of confusing text messages and phone calls, sort of sprang to […]

The street artist Hanksy put together an art show in an abandoned lower east side building with a bunch of other street artists decorating whole or walls or rooms within different apartments spanning 3 stories.

BIKE KILLL!!!!! What an awesome name. I’ve seen photos from this event for years, and while I often ride a bike to get around in this city, I’m not really part of the bike scene. I thought this event was only for those in the Black Label bike gang, but this year I was privy […]

At first it did seem a bit […]

I get a lot of event listing emails so I can keep up with what’s going on around the city. People always ask me how I find out about events, like it’s some big mystery, but it’s basically email lists. Every now and then I find something that sounds kinda crazy, you can’t really tell […]

Hap Birt To Me! Starring: The Hives

Posted on April 27, 2012 by

Yesterday, April 26th, was my half birthday. I don’t actually celebrate it, but I like to make myself aware that I’m half a year older, and that it’s only six more months until my birthday (time to start planning)! It was a pretty dreary day and there was a lot of work that I should […]

Love Castle

Posted on February 19, 2012 by

Like many people out there, I’m not that big of a fan of Valentine’s day. It’s nice to have a day of love, but it’s pushed more towards romantic love, rather than platonic, familial or even just general love. I think more people would embrace Valentine’s day if it was more about telling those in […]
