replacing Paula

replacing Paula
OMG! Dummocrats.com has the funniest fucking list of people who could replace Paula… check out: Who Should Replace Paula Abdul on American Idol?

and we have a couple to add:
Rosie O’Donnell – just as annoying as Paula and would take a similar approach that everyone is great and act appalled that people have to leave the show.
Madonna – she’d make em cry, hard
Cher – the hair, the outfits, the voice – Cher would be awesome!

canceled flight arrives

canceled flight arrives
Tuesday night we hit the opening of the art exhibition for the book – Canceled Flight: 101 Tried and True Pigeon Killin’ Methods – and it was kickin! some of NY’s best artists and photographers, cool music, free beerz and KILLER ART.

the book is a brilliant and hilarious collection of images. and the exhibition is great. tons of mind blowing art filled with detail, irony and humor. each piece is fascinating. some knocked us out. and we know CityRag readers will get it, but due to the bizarre feedback on Amazon, we’d like to add – this is not an offensive show, the theme is intended and presented in a very humorous way, the work is moving and funny.

free and open to the public, the show runs May 4th-May 24th (1pm–7pm everyday) and is at the Reed Space, 151 Orchard Street (b/w Rivington + Stanton) stop by and check it out! and if you can’t make it – check out the book, a fantastic collection of illustration and photos from some of the most talented artists around, a bargain at $16
