An Occupy Art Show @ Bowery Poetry Club



And I find myself recycling that Occupy Art blog post on this blog on this blogging day. And so that Occupy Art Show @ Bowery Poetry took place a couple of days ago, freezing artic weather, snowstorm and all. And today finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 900 and something again, I think..... And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast. And so what else is there that I can Occupy Art say about an Occupy Art Show at Bowery Poetry with all of its poetry readings, that has not already been said in an Occupy Art time, except that it seems to have been an Occupy Art Show of a night as in those photos and videos that find themselves posted above. And thanks to Bowery Poetry Club for letting Occupy Art in NYC present this show, and thanks to Occupy Wall Street, Nonsense NYC, Jenny Gonzalez Blitz and others for listing this event, Slum Goddess for one of those photos that finds itself posted above, Fly for her zine table, everyone who made it out to perform, Occupy Art open mic and all, for live streaming that event and Galinsky for hosting the night. Occupy Art was here again. Occupy Art Worldwide.

Ditto.... a few hours later.  And I just came across this following passage on someones Facebook page regarding that Bowery Poetry Club Occupy Art night. And that post seems as if it wants to be in this blog post also.

"Went to a lovely local venue tonight, which had been known for its many radical performers and events, often performance free-for-alls, at once time zines and an adjective anarchist cafe upstairs, the reliable graffiti'd downstairs .. it was a remainder (more than a reminder) of what a (good) anarchic city performance space should be ..
the building was declared a historic landmark, I think, but was refurbished somehow .. I've heard that they do burlesque and other performances there that nobody that I know can afford to casually attend; they have proper dining tables with candles; the wallpaper is decorated with faux-classical sculptural images, the downstairs area is quite pristine, and there is an ironic satyr statue wearing a mardi gras mask in the front, near a vase of pretty flowers ~ they apparently have one night out of the week where they can be "old school," and it was apparently tonight - friends were there, anarchists agreeing with one another, amongst the proper dining tables and decor

I'm glad that there is "something left," but more and more the dirty troves of information, even from the 1999-past few years eras, seem to be legendary

Sometimes I have dreams of running into dirtily lit stores with torn-up couches and hardcore music downstairs, literally

- not as often as dreams of traveling to small towns in upstate new york, to the midwest .. even to dirt roads in third world countries, and then digging through drawers of antique and collectibles stores looking for books. I don't know why, but it seems as through the dreams are connected, somehow"

Occupy Art Is Here Again

Okay so here's another one of those recycle this blog posts from my other blog that I thought to post on this blog in order to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible.

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. Occupy Art is here again. Well actually it's Occupy Art is almost here again as I type this blog post. And I know Occupy Art is almost here again because that Occupy Art Show @ Bowery Poetry Facebook event invite says so. And so today finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 900 and something, I think..... And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast, well sort of fast. And actually Occupy Art was already here before on this blog at Theater For The New City a couple of years ago. It's just that this time that Occupy Art Show finds itself at The Bowery Poetry Club, that finds itself in that city of New York, that finds itself in that neighborhood of the Lower East Side that now calls itself the East Village for real estate marketing purposes, maybe. And so I thought that this would be a good reason to drag this Occupy Art blog out of the blogger closet again that has been collecting blogger dust since its last post a couple of years ago. Oh, and ditto a few days later.... and that Occupy Art Photo that Galinsky posted on his Facebook page, well that's just Occupy Art cool.  And that Occupy Art Show event invite reads as follows:

How The Other Half Lives

Okay so I could be blaghing about that #Bridgegate scandal that happened the other day but instead I find myself blaghing about what if such and such a magazine were to see these photos of hair, makeup and wardrobe posted above on this blog, well there's only two photos posted, they might be wondering how did these photos find themselves posted on this blog while they went out to lunch the other day. When in fact, to blagher me, these are photos of how the other half lives. And these are photos of a retro look in this old house with like ten different designer clothing outfit changes that left real Sensationnel Premium Now Premium Quality 100% Human Hair style/color EUROSTR16 Color 613 hair all over the place and the smell of hair spray still hanging in the air days later. And it was a this is probably as close as I'll get to a behind the how the other half lives look at scenes of a fashion photo shoot in, at and around a house, for one of those Vogue like magazines, literally Vogue and all things subsidiary Vogue itself, for what I over heard will be a ten page spread of a model in her retro outfits in this old house. And in between hair and make up that wants a whole room unto itself, hiding out of the way and listening to how the other half lives, fumey hair spray, designer clothing that wants a whole another room unto itself and the smell of hair spray everywhere, everyone flying from country to country for their photo shoots, even tomorrow. No one even knows where they're at now, only just somewhere in New Jersey.... dang.
