A Minivan Minimansion Tour

ditto..and these photos below, well they were added a few days later when the camera battery worked again
And so I found myself on another one of those tours with a friend on this day in search of that mega mini mansion of a neighborhood with one of those New York New Jersey minivans to get me there as one of those tourists in the state of New Jersey with The Palisades cliffs and that skyline of Manhattan to be found in that State of New York as its backdrop. And this one was one of those planned tours via the internet with enough reason to drag that camera out of the closet again with enough battery to get a whole ten photos out of it before the camera batteries died again. And so those photos that I found myself taking in my blogaholicness find themselves as posted above. Happy holy dayze.

The Headline News Again

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 461.  And Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Together, those global revolution of a movements, are still moving fast. And it also finds itself a day before that Mayan Calendar End Of The World Countdown thing, and a few days after that unfortunate Connecticut School Shooting that has since ignited the issue of gun control and gun violence and has spawned online groups such as Occupy The NRA. And so I find myself attempting to find something to blog about on this day in an attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible and also when that Google page rank update wants to send me in search of a fifth full time job. And so I find myself pulling out this vanilla folder stuffed with torn out newspaper clippings of headlines from months and I think even years ago that I once thought that I would blog about on this blog that never happened. And so I attempt to I guess mini blog those headline news clippings without commentary as if to rewind headline news time with headlines that read something like as follows in an attempt to just put this stack of news clippings away again:

1.  College students targeted in online music piracy crackdown.
2.  Take Out the Plastic and Kill it.
3.  National Guard will help protect PATH. hugh????
4.  Workers blast city's Big Brother scheme....Something about an electronic payroll system.

11.  Gov urges gun ban for violent mental patients.....How about urging a gun ban for every human being on planet earth.
12.  Bored? Tired of going to the same old places.  Try This! Rent a .22 Caliber Rifle...Safety Lessons Included. Such and such Rifle and Pistol Range located in New York City with an ad in a local New York City newspaper.... hugh??? can someone please banish all of these gun stores located in North America. 
13.  flavor of the week. Slim to None. Such and such gets a divorce and a veggie burger-all for less than $40.
14.  Big Bang re-created.

39.   For what reason does Penn Station and Port Authority Bus Terminal seem like a war zone with polizei in camouflage with dogs and machine guns as if awaiting world war four and one is supposed to pretend that they cannot get killed by some guy standing next to them with a machine gun. Guns are the worst invention ever.  If only guns could be banished from every human being on planet earth.

Wednesday, December 12, 2012


Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blagh. And in case you haven't heard, today on planet earth finds itself of that date December 12th, 2012 or 12.12.12 according to that Gregorian calendar on the wall, the last repetitive date we'll see in our lifetimes, or according to those doomsday sayers, 12/12/12, the last date before the end of the world 12.21.2012 Mayan calendar date, or something like that. And so what else is there that I can say about this date that has not already been said in 12 12 12 time. Well, CNN finds itself posting articles with headlines that read Once-in-a-lifetime 12/12/12 date spawns mass weddings, superstitions and RT finds itself with articles that read something like 12/12/12: Twelve must-know facts about last once-in-a-lifetime date this century with a text that reads something like as follows. Have a great 12.12.2012 day.

12/12/12 –– the day of Harmony ... or Doom?

Twelve facts about the last, once-in-a-lifetime date, this century …

1. Wedding bells will be ringing in Hong Kong and Singapore, where couples are keen to tie the knot on a day which they say symbolizes love. But it’s not just Asia which will see an increase in love birds heading to the altar. A survey conducted by US-based David’s Bridal estimates that around 7,500 brides will be getting hitched in America – a 1,446 per cent increase from the less significant 12/12/11. The surge comes as no surprise, considering the sharp increases in marriages which took place on 11/11/11 and 10/10/10.

2. For some, the day will be anything but joyful. Many doomsdayers believe 12/12/12 will be the end of the world, thanks to an interpretation of the Mayan calendar. But, most of the end-of-the-world believers are convinced that the actual doomsday is on 12/21/12, when the Mayan calendar is set to end.

3. In response to “end of the world” preparations taking place across the globe, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific has declared 12/12/12 “Anti-Doomsday Day,” in celebration of rational thinking and reasoned discourse.

4. Palindrome lovers will rejoice in the fact that at 1:21:02 am, they can celebrate the second which marks a date-time combination which will be read the same both backwards and forwards. 2012-12-12 1:21:02 = 201212-1-212102.

5. Those who wish to take part in yet another time-based phenomenon but find themselves snoring away at 1:21:02 will be given a second chance. At 12:12:12 pm, the number 12 will be given a “sixer” – 12/12/12 12:12:12.

6. Number crunchers have a profound respect for the number 12, mainly because of its divisibility capabilities. After all, it can divided into halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and twelfths. So it can only be assumed that mathematicians will find 12/12/12 to be three times more exciting than a normal “12” day.

7. According to Chinese numerology, the number one is a yang number which is ruled by the sun and represents independence and individualism. Two is a yin number which is ruled by the moon and represents symmetry and balance. When placed together, the number 12 brings harmony to the yin and yang, balancing the feminine energy of the moon with the masculine energy of the sun. So, what we can gather is that 12/12/12 equals lots of harmony.

8. Three is generally considered a heavenly number and often represents the soul or godhead. Four is the number of earth and mankind – for example, there are four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) and four cardinal directions (north, south, east, and west). Because of this, the product of the two numbers, 12, has been said to encompass both the secular and the sacred. So 12/12/12 should mean that both sides will be represented more than usual.

9. December 12, 2012 is exactly 6 years, 6 months, 6 days from June 6, 2006, or 06/06/06.

10. From culinary cuisine to calendars, 12 has been a significant number since its creation. Just think about it – 12 months in the year, 12 hours of night and day, 12 astrological signs, 12 Olympic gods and goddesses, 12 days of Christmas, and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Oh, and let’s not forget about eggs – which are cheaper by the dozen! With so much significance on its side, 12/12/12 was seemingly destined to be a meaningful day.

11. Kiam Moriya of Birmingham, Alabama will turn 12 at 12:12pm on 12/12/12. Since approximately 267 babies are born every minute, many other people will share the same moment – in their respective timezones, of course!

12. Students at Moscow State University have been given motivation to study after their professor posted a sign on his door stating, “The last chance to retake your History of Foreign Literature exam will be 12/12/12. If you choose not to take it, it will not only be the end of the world…but also the end of you.”

A Mill Creek Marsh Trip

Well that was pretty neat to find myself on one of those unexpected ten minute day trips to Mill Creek Marsh today after running into a friend at the supermarket with one of those cars that she could drive to this infamous dumping ground oasis that finds itself in the middle of Secaucus, New Jersey Meadowlands. And that place was like a trip to the country in the middle of the city with the skyline of Manhattan as its background and the smell of sulphur around it that comes from somewhere. And it was a great excuse to grab that camera out of the closet to get a whole five photos out of it before the camera batteries died to post those photos that find themselves posted above. And seeing those white cedar stumps in the swamp in person that I have read about on the internet, on that one and a half mile Mill Creek Marsh nature trail was nature trail interesting. And where does that sulphur smell that finds itself around this Mill Creek Marsh come from. And this marsh still bears witness to the aftermath of hurricane Sandy with its multitude of trees that have fallen and lay on the ground. Oh, and then there's Hoffa. Where are you.

Squat or Rot

Squat or rot. Squat the world. The Squatters are your neighbors. Housing is a human right. And all of those other slogans and sayings that used to go with that squatter movement of the Lower East Side, now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes in New York City, maybe. And so now that Tompkins Square Park everywhere movement could now be thought of as homestead or rot in the age of gentrification and the Disneylandification of a neighborhood. And so I came across this Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space Facebook event invite throughout my travels in internetland on this day for their opening party at their space. And that Facebook event invite and their website reads something like as follows:

Buy Nothing Day

And in case you haven't heard again, yesterday was that American holiday of Thanksgiving. Remember the Indians and eat more tofurky. And so after Thanksgiving, advertisers and retailers have seemingly invented some other holiday that calls itself Black Friday in order to get people to shop, shop and shop until you drop for all of those discount deals that seems to encourage one of those holiday season consumerism shopping frenzies on this day. And so then there is Buy Nothing Day, that also finds itself on the same day. As in buy nothing. And from what I have read throughout my internet travels, Wal-Mart Workers Will Walk Off The job On Black Friday. And one of those events on this day finds itself as follows. And those Buy Nothing photos that find themselves posted above, well they just seem to Buy Nothing Day speak for themselves.

Black Friday

And in case you haven't heard, today finds itself that holiday of Thanksgiving in that country of North America. And usually after that holiday is over, the next day finds itself Black Friday 2012, that shop till you drop discount day the day after Thanksgiving. And from what I hear, stores are opening even earlier this year for that day. And one way to find those Black Friday discounts is online without ever having to go to one of those stores in person to endure those mid morning rush for deals on Black Friday. One can find Target coupons, Best Buy Black Friday coupons, promotion codes, discount codes, online coupons and online deals for just about any day of the year from many online stores such as Target, Office Depot, Old Navy, Best Buy, Dell, Orbitz and more for just about any item and category one can think of such as electronics, food, clothing, books, phones, cameras, shoes and more.

The Middle East

And in what seems like immediately right after the presidential elections in North America and right before the presidential elections in Israel, just in time for the holidays and right before that 12.21.2012 Mayan calendar end of the world as we know it thing, the Middle East, Israel and Palestine find themselves in the headline news again with headlines that read Israel Names Its New War "Pillar Of Cloud" and seemingly a bazillion more headlines and commentaries about this Israel, Palestine war that has those religious thoughts coming to mind enough to make me wonder if Israel is becoming a nation and getting its parable of the fig tree holy war gog and magog promised land back and Jesus is going to return soon or something. And I Cannot Go to Bed - There is Epic S**t Happening on the Internet. And so I find myself posting this Prophecy of John of Jerusalem post that found itself posted on this blog sometime a while ago.
The Prophecy of Jerusalem

The birth pains increase and the blind multiply.

For the blind cannot see, no matter if Jesus stands right in front of them.

Surely Lord, is there even more to save?
When they only scoff and mock and are filled with evil thoughts?

Surely Lord, you know the hearts of men.
Is there left any man still that can be called to you Lord?

In Jesus Christ.

A Thousand Years
The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Hunger will squeeze the stomachs of so many men
And cold will turn blue so many hands
That these people will want to see another world
And dream-merchants will come who will offer them the poison.
But it will destroy bodies and rot souls
And those who will have mixed the poison with their blood
Will be like wild beasts caught in a trap
And will kill and rape and extort and steal
And life will become an everyday apocalypse.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Each person will seek as much sexual pleasure as he can
The man will repudiate his wife as many times as he marries
And the woman will go from place to place taking whomever pleases her
Giving birth without giving the Father’s name
But no educator will guide the child
And each one among the others will be alone
Tradition will be lost
The Law will be forgotten
As if the Annunciation had never been made and man
Will become wild again

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
The father will take his pleasure with his daughter
Man with man, woman with woman
The old man with the impubescent child
And that will be known by all.
But blood will become impure
The disease will spread from bed to bed
The body will receive all the putrefactions of the earth
Faces will be gaunt, limbs will be emaciated
Love will be a great threat
For those who only know each other sexually.

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
He who speaks of sworn Oaths and of Law
Will not be heard
He who preaches the Christian Faith
Will lose his voice in the desert.
But everywhere will spread the strong waters
Of other religions
False messiahs will assemble blinded men
And the armed Infidel will be like never before
He will speak of justice and of right
And his faith will be burning and decisive
He will take his revenge for the Crusade

And so somehow I came across this Capitalism Is a Pyramid Scheme photo on Facebook throughout my travels in internetland the other day. And I thought the colors and drawings of that photo looked interesting in all of its pyramidilism with its pyramid scheme in graphics and all. And the photo description reads something like... okay actually I am unable to read the very small text in the photo, though one of those interesting comments to this photo reads something like,

"The labor of those lower on the pyramid enriches the ones towards the top. To stay stable, the economy has to draw in more and more resources—colonizing new continents, workforces, and aspects of daily life. The resulting inequalities can only be maintained by ever-escalating force. We’re encouraged to compete against each other to improve our positions on an individual basis. But there’s not enough space at the top for all of us, no matter how hard we work—and no pyramid scheme can go on expanding forever. Sooner or later it’s bound to crash: global warming and recession are just the first warning signs. Instead of going down with the Pharaohs, let’s join forces to establish another way of life."

Occupy Sandy

And on this day finds itself another one of those Sundays that has rolled around, the day of rest, the day of the sun. The Sabbath, or is that Saturday. And on this day also finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 415. And those global revolutions of a movement Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Together are still moving fast. And so here on the east coast in that country of North America, there is Occupy Sandy Relief to be found as a result of the aftermath that Hurricane Sandy also known as Frankenstorm left behind in New York City. And Occupy Sandy Relief NYC and its volunteers are in need of supplies and donations to help their Sandy Aid Efforts for those who have been affected by this storm. And New York Magazine has published a photo of  Lower Manhattan without power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy for its cover story that also finds itself posted above.  And some information from Occupy Wall Streets website reads as follows:

 Occupy Sandy has raised over $79,000 for people-powered disaster relief: click here to donate!

For the most up-to-date info on how to help, go to:

In the aftermath of the worst climate change disaster in New York City history, organizers from Occupy Wall Street and have teamed up with to coordinate a people-powered relief effort for New York’s hardest hit neighborhoods. Beginning with the Lower East Side, Red Hook, Astoria and Staten Island, volunteer organizers are using the new site to connect offers of help with places of need.
The group has already launched a relief hub in Red Hook, in partnership with the Red Hook Initiative, to help coordinate donations of food and supplies and to cook meals for the over 5,000 residents of the Red Hook Houses housing project that are without electricity in the flooded neighborhood. An afternoon relief caravan will head out to the Rockaways, one of the hardest-hit areas of the city. This evening, members of the OWS Puppet Guild will be putting on free puppet shows for children in the Sunset Park and Red Hook neighborhoods.
“There is only one force more powerful than a storm like this, and that’s the power of people coming together to help their communities. We’ve been able to put together an amazing network of people in a short time who are providing the help our neighbors need, and building stronger, more resilient communities in the process through mutual aid. Thanks to climate change, this storm is unfortunately only the beginning of an increasing trend of natural disasters hitting large urban areas. We hope that we can provide a blueprint for how to generate a rapid response in the face of such emergencies. All power to the people,"
said Lopi LaRoe, artist and Occupy organizer.
“Corporate power contributed to this disaster, and people-power will get us out of it. Without climate change, Sandy would not have been the storm it was. The fossil fuel corporations have wrecked our climate and now our homes, and it’s well past time for us to work together to fix this problem. Building a stronger movement that cares for each other is one of many steps we need to take in the coming years.”

A Climate Change Hurricane

And in case you have been stuck in the stone age or hiding out beneath one of those rocks and haven't heard, a hurricane named Sandy also known as Frankenstorm had made its way from Cuba and Bahamas to New York and other states on the east coast seaboard leaving damage and devastation behind. New York City has grinded to a halt and is underwater, or partially underwater at the moment from the ocean rushing in and submerging it with flooding. Sandy has turned the New York City area into a surreal cataclysmic apocalyptic scene that reads like something from one of those disaster flick movies The Day After Tomorrow , 2012 or The Perfect Storm to where it has been declared a major disaster area from fires, flooding, transit shutdowns and darkness from power blackouts, cancelling this years NYC Village Halloween Parade, closing the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street, interrupting the elections and all events in between. And this has me to wondering about that Mayan calender ending, climate change and December 21.2012, a time for change thing again. And those postcards from an underwater New York City fake photos of Frankenstorm also known as hurricane Sandy that find themselves posted above makes me wonder if Babylon is fallen, has fallen or neither. The climate has changed. And it is the age of Aquarius, I think..., the milky way, the planetary alignment, the end of the world as we know it, or maybe even HAARP, who knows. And those surreal photos that arise write a story for themselves.

The Parka

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. And if you happen to be living or passing through that city of New York, you may have noticed that the weather has gotten cooler with the arrival of fall and that people are starting to wear those jackets to keep warm on subways, trains, buses and beyond ad part of that fall and winter fashion. And so if you happen to be looking for a Canada Goose Solaris Parka, those jackets that can keep you warm even in artic weather, you can find them at Dave's New York which happens to be located in that seemingly fashion capital of the world in that city of New York. And that winter outdoor parka comes in different sizes with a fur hood for when it comes to all things fall and fashion. And what better way to get one of those parkas than with a website visit or subway train ride away.

Hey again Bloggers or whoever could be reading this blagh. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 395. And Occupy Wall Street, that NYC Protest for World Revolution is still moving fast. And even in the midst of Occupy Wall street and Occupy Together, I still find myself blogging about music, music and music and music, music, and more music events to be found in that city of New York. And so another music event is happening at The Stone, that nightclub to be found in the Lower East side or the East Village for real estate marketing purposes in New York City. And those events to be found on Facebook and beyond read something like as follows:

Welf Dorr Unit at The Stone 
October 30th, 8pm, tickets $10

Welf Dorr Unit is a new project that saw the light earlier this year with a well-received performance at Arts for Arts/Evolving Music Series. Welf Dorr on alto sax joins forces with Dave Ross on guitar, Dmitry Ishenko on bass and Joe Hertenstein on drums for a free jazz ride with structure and tinges of funk and rock.

Welf, originally from Munich (Germany), lives in New York since 1995 where he played and recorded with Sonny Simmons, Sabir Mateen and Juini Booth. He is a member of Karl Berger’s Improvisers Orchestra, Kenny Wollesen’s Himalayas and the Nublu Orchestra conducted by Butch Morris and works currently mostly with his brass band Underground Horns.

Dave Ross has played with nearly everybody of the downtown music scene and is mostly known for his work with William Hooker.

Bassist Dmitry Ishenko, originally from Russia, played on the very last concerts with Steve Lacy and is a member of the late John Tchicai's "Ascension Unending”.

Fellow German Joe Hertenstein is making a splash on the NY scene since 2007. He leads his trio HNH and has recently released Polylemma and Future Drone featuring Jon Iragabon.

Drawing inspiration from the outer realms and more into the squat politics of the East Village basement jam... a wild array of stylish zanies, freedom rings with poetry, polyrhythmic complexity and primal passions. Another world never imagined possible from the undying, ever growing counter culture crucible of downtown New York.". 

And The Stone Rocks. Have a great big band music and more day.
