Kaleidoscope Rainbow Parade

Posted on July 12, 2012 by

On Saturday I partook in the annual Kaleidoscope colors/rainbow parade. My friend and I met up at the starting point in the early evening donning neon colored shirts, though there were those who easily upstaged us with bright and colorful accessories or who even wore full crazy costumes. At first it did seem a bit […]

Thunderdome

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 […]

Posted on January 30, 2012 by

You may have seen a few references on this site to my participation in the 2009 Idiotarod, and though I haven’t written about the years in between, this was actually my fifth year in a row running this costumed shopping cart race.   This year was my own highly anticipated theme idea of Andrew W.K.art!

Posted on January 11, 2012 by

Last night I attended a class at the Morbid Anatomy Library / Proteus Gowanuson anthropomorphic taxidermy, which is the practice of mounting and displaying taxidermied animals as if they were humans or engaged in human activities. I received an email about one of the first offerings of this class in November, but the class sold […]

Pro Pants!

Posted on January 9, 2012 by

I have never participated in the No Pants Subway Ride. That might seem a bit strange to you since one of the main themes of this blog is doing some weird and stupid stuff within the city. I can’t really explain it, but it just hasn’t really appealed to me. Everyone seems to know about […]

So, I hear you draw a mean Ralph Wiggum

Posted on December 7, 2011 by

Last Saturday started off as any other weekend does, I met up with some friends at one of my favorite brunch spots for eggs, bacon and bloody marys. I had no other real plans for that afternoon, but a few friends were heading to the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, which wasn’t too far from […]
