And being that I'm sitting here posting that Horrors of Cocaine audition tomorrow. 7/12. NYC  notice around on those social media pages in my internetaholicness, it seems only fitting that I post that notice on this blagh also for when I am trying to find content for this blog and my other blog whenever bloggers block possible. And that Horrors of Cocaine Backstage casting notice describes itself as something like:

Now that should be interesting also, if it actually happens. And really the only reason, well one of the reasons I wanted to post about that Horrors of Cocaine audition at a 9/11 Cultural Festival was to post that Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five Youtube video that finds itself posted above that seems as if it wants to be a soundtrack for this play for if this play actually really does see the light of day.  And if I can remember correctly, that Sugar Hill Records and Beat Street movie sound track was way cool.

And didn't I just blagh about that 9/11 Cultural festival on this blog in that post right below this post a few days ago or something. And what again, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State.

A 9/11 Cultural Festival

And even when that Google page rank update wants to send me in search of a fifth full time job for when that get rich internet quick does not get rich internet quick, I still find myself blaghing away for some reason. And so hey again bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog. From what I hear throughout my travels here on planet earth, Exavier Wardlaw is putting together a 9/11 Cultural Festival that is to run September 11th - September 14th, 2014 in that city of New York. And I take it that this festival has something to do with that somewhat controversial topic of 9/11. And if I must blogger commentary say, I have never really been a follower of that 9/11 topic and all of those conspiracies, commentaries, thoughts and opinions that go along with it. And I know that this 9/11 Cultural Festival is being put together by Exavier because all of those rehearsals and auditions that I have been going to with him for his 9/11 & The Youtube Tapes and other 9/11 Cultural Festival plays say so. And I also know that there is some sort of an attempt to present that The Horrors of cocaine: what cocaine made me do for seven years eBook as a play into this festival. And according to that 9/11 cultural flyer that finds itself posted above, some of those performances and venues to be a part of this 4 day festival include Bowery Poetry ClubFirst Street Green Park, Bread and Puppet Theater and other venues and performers to be included. And that broadwayworld.com description of this event reads as follows:

The 9/11 Cultural Festival will take place 9/11 - 9/14/14 at The First Street Green Park, The Bowery Poetry Club and other venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The World Premiere of a new play by Bread and Puppet Theater Company will be the featured event.
The 9/11 Cultural Festival is a festival for peace in which an honest dialogue about 9/11 is encouraged through the arts, theatre, dance, music, poetry and the visual arts and crafts.
Interested performing groups, artists and craftsmen should contact 911CulturalFestival@gmail.com. Please include your YouTube link to audition or apply.

And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State.

Occupy The NSA




Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 1004. And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast. And if I must blogger say, I came across Shahid Buttar's Facebook page after coming across him performing at my Occupy Art Show @ Bowery Poetry Club a few months ago. And that NSA vs USA video of his that finds itself posted above, well that seems to be all Occupy The NSA and more. And I have blaghed about the NSA Surveillance State on this blog before. And it seems as if technology is turning against humanity sometimes with its zombie apocalypse in cell phones, the internet and other electronic devices. And that Shahid Buttar video above NSA vs USA George Orwell 1984 speaks for itself. And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State.

Occupy Art Went To Figment NYC



And if I must blogger say, FIGMENT NYC was awesome. And that ferry boat ride that one takes across the water to get to Governors Island and all of its art, art and more art, well that was even more awesome to see New York City and all of its harbor views. And those one hundred and more art projects and art installations, performances and more that found themselves on Governors Island on this Figment NYC day, well they were even more awesome. And so this Figmentevent seems as if it wants photos, photos and more photos and colors, colors and more colors to be added to this post. And so Occupy Art Show was at Figment on this day and some of those photos from this Occupy Art Show find themselves posted above. And even more photos from that Occupy Art Show and FIGMENT NYC on this day find themselves posted in my Occupy Art Show @ Figment NYC Facebook event invite. And the Occupy Wall Street People's Puppets were there on this day also. And if I would have known that, I would have Occupy Wall Street People's Puppets went over there to see their show also. And so Figment NYC has come to an end this past weekend. And with that, that Occupy Art Show @ Figment NYC has came to an end as well. And so Figment is off to San Diego, Boston, Toronto, Washington D.C. and even more cities as well in all its Figmentness. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 997. And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast, well sort of. Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Art Worldwide.

Occupy Art Was @ Left Forum

Well that Occupy Art Panel at Left Forum at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in that city of New York that I blogged about a week or so ago happened a few days ago. And according to Left Forum, this was their best conference to date. And from what I saw during my time there, despite a panel speaker being missing in action who did not make it to that Occupy Art panel on this day, it was Paul DeRienzo of Let Them Talk who saved the day with his squatter history slide show for the few people who were in attendance. And that slide show was all things squatting and art. And if it wasn't for Paul and his slide show, that "There will be a slide show presentation of Occupy artwork as well as Lower East Side, NYC Lower East Side Squat History zines" part of Occupy Art's panel description would have just been false advertising and may not have happened. And so how did the rest of that Left Forum conference go on the last day of their three day conference one may ask, maybe? Well those photos above speak for themselves and a picture can tell a story, or something like that. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 990. Have a great Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Art day and more.
