A 2012 New Year

Hey again bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blagh. And a 2012 new year is here. And if you ask a Mayan, it's 2012AD or, a doomsday end of the world long countdown for the Maya 2012 calendar that started on Winter Solstice December 21st. A time for change, the end of the world as we know it, or something like that. And 2012 is also here because all of those Jeff Stark New Years Eve nonsense nyc events says so. And 2012 is also here because that Nublu flyer that finds itself posted above and Malik Work's New Year's Eve @ The Lucky Basement facebook event invite also says so, as well as a host of other New Years Eve events and parties that find themselves in that city of New York and other places around the world. And if you happen to be in the neighborhood of that city of New York, some of those nonsense nyc events are as follows. And keep in mind, In 2013 I will watch 2012 and laugh. Have a great new year and beyond.

Occupy 2012: Wall Street New Years Eve Celebration

What is your New Year's Revolution? 2011 was an amazing awakening. Lets start 2012 off right. Come celebrate with thousands of other members of the 99 percent. At our park and in the streets as we make our special New Years Revolution together. Bring a drum. Bring your instrument.

In the two hours before, we will reclaim our park and the area around it. At the New Year, we will raise the 99 percent, and then after midnight the party goes mobile.

Bring: Noisemakers, air horns, drums, anything that is loud!
We come together in protest and celebration. For those locked up, we bring that celebration. May this simple night of noise-bringing carry momentum into a new year of open conflict with the state and capital.
