We love our friend Alan - he is a great photographer, videographer and driver of floats during the Mermaid Parade!
These were the shots he took of Girl To Gorilla at K&M Bar at our Oscar Party! Thanks to lovely lady Andrea - bartender and hostess galore, of Lady Magma fame for giving us the gig! Here are the photos ...
Note the Oscars playing behind us

The inner-city equivalent of the mullet.
Please - the only people that are allowed to get away with these are Nietas or Latin Kings from South Brooklyn circa 1985 - 1989.
All you irony starved (supposed) lesbian hispters! STOP! Lose that shit - you're a VICE Magazine don't!
I don't care if their was one on the L-Word this week!
This is the shit!
According to www.infowars.com, Michelle Obama is seen making the "El Diablo" devil sign on the cover of VOGUE. Personally to me it looks like she's sneaking a gang-sign in. Yo Yo Yo WEST SIIIIIIEEEED!
I always liked Liev Schreiber. He's a good actor but in the new X-Men movie coming out about Wolverine he plays Sabretooth. Sabretooth is supposed to be a burly, over-muscled, fera,l hair-bag, sociopathic psycho. Tyler Mane - the pro-wrestler from the first movie who played him was pretty dead on physically. Liev on the other hand seems a little doughy - he's got man-boobs in the on set shot below. Sabretooth shouldn't have moobs! OK so you can hide that but he's also always just a little on the soft side. Here's a list of actors I think would have made a far better Sabretooth...
1. Gerald Butler who played Leonidas in the 300 if he could lose the English accent. It's rumored he was up for the part at one time.
2. Matthew McConaughy - that red neck drawl would give the character and even creepier edge and it's time he played a villain.
3. Kurt Russell - ok a little older, maybe not a body builder but at least he looks grizzled enough.
4. Pro-Wrestler Goldberg - Big, mean, nasty, perfect.
5. Chuck Norris - I think it's time Walker Texas Ranger made a come back!
6. Jeff Fahey - yeah the Lawnmower Man - where the hell has he been? He's hairy enough for sure.
7. Howie Long - just cause I think that would be weird.
8. Daniel Day Lewis - He's proved time and time again he can play a great psychopath.
9. Viggo Mortensen - Weather killing orcs or Russian gangsters he's been dead on playing an ass kicker.
10. Scott William Winters - yeah I know he played a retard on OZ - but before his character went stupid he was brutal.
It's a beautiful Sunday morning - I have to go to work - Nutz - foiled again.
Been a busy weekend -
Friday was Comic Con in New York. Do you like comics but still consider yourself somewhat cool? Does the occasional action or vinyl figure grace your cubicle, but you can still get a date? Did you dress as Judge Dredd for Halloween, yet you still woke up the next day next to an attractive brunette who was dressed as Omaha? If this is the case and you feel pretty good about yourself and your life despite the occasional foray into fantasy land DON'T GO TO COMIC CON. After you experience Comic Con you will for sure feel like you must shred every last issue of Lobo you own - even he ones that Simon Bisley drew. You will melt down the limited edition Shogun Warrior Gaiking figure you scored on eBay. You will tear that Sandman t-shirt to rags and use it to wash your toilet.
My hand to God it was like going to an Aspergers Convention! The highlight was one of my poor co-workers was on a panel for a game called Splatterhouse. This one complete annoying shit-dribble kept asking questions, out of turn, about whether there would be a chainsaw in the game (which they already said there would be) and if it was a remake or sequel (they ALSO mentioned it would be a re-make 10 minutes prior). Another parents-basement living douchenick asked "will this be like the goriest game like ever - snort -snort snort - because it's got this God-like reputation you all need to live up to - snort." That jackass had that Naruto spiky hair I can't stand even on cartoon characters. The only people that should be allowed to sport that hair-cut are Japanese New Wave bands!
That night I got my new tat finished as well - Nick Caruso at Flyrite did the deed. Man's the shit - the only problem was Nick and his partner kept making me laugh about Comic con which makes the process hurt all that much more. At one point Nick threatened to paint himself blue and don one of those Borat swimsuits so he could go to the convention as Nightcrawler from the X-Men. HAHHAHHAAhaa OOWOWWOWWWOW!
To beat all, when Nick's done, he brings me over to where his partner is working to show off what I think is a pretty big piece he's done on me - that's when the little dick syndrome kicked in. His partner was inking a guy who was getting one piece that started at his neck and ended at his ankles. And I further felt like a pussy whining about how much it hurt all yesterday - WELL IT DID!
Yesterday the Rev. started on his super-secret new project which is sure to surprise and delight all very soon, but last night was a birthday party for one of Miss Judy's buddies. It was over at the Brooklyn Ale House - a place that never held any attraction for me. It kind of stinks of old peanuts and desperation. But the crowd was fun and the despair factor was at a minimum.
Th Rev slogged over to that Red Bull Snowscraper thing last night down on Houston St. by the East River. To be serious at first I didn't get it. Why? Well there was what looked like 10,000 people there that did, all shivering in the cold watching pro-boarders vie for $50,000 on man made mountains. The thing I found really weird was they covered the ground at the site with man made snow as well - like really now wasn't it cold enough? I got a little caught up in the fun, I must admit but when I stopped being able to feel my toes I headed over to Otto's Shrunken Head where somehow I ended up doing a Karaoke version of the Ace Of Spades. Overall - a good night.
