Passover on Monday night was pretty incredible. Intimate gathering of 10 people lead by an ex-Chasid turned globetrotting DJ, great crowd, raucous singing, bottomless wine, delicious food, topped off by a tipsy daredevil bike ride with an old Jackson Hole snowboarding buddy in for the weekend and $1 slices. Signing autographs as Bruce Willis to drunken…
Bike Kill of Brooklyn
“TAKE a dash of “Mad Max,” add a pinch of “Jackass,” sprinkle both over a wet batter of art students, bicycle messengers, anarchist welders and militant anti-globalist vegans, then let the mixture bake for, say, a decade in the oven of Brooklyn, and the resulting dish should taste a little like the Black Label Bike…
Niagara Falls and The moistures

The end is nigh!

Amish do Philip Glass

Revolution + 5th ave.
Fiorella and I attended a protest march the other day to support the Egyptian people during their 17 day struggle to throw out their entrenched leader. What struck me most, besides how horrible it feels to protest in fenced in pens surrounded by police which quickly takes any wind out of your civil disobedient sails,…
