Occupy This Event

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blagh. And besides those political conventions that seem to be in the headline news these days, a whole lot of other events seem to be going on. And I know that a whole lot of other events are going on, specifically in that city of New York because all of those Facebook events and email announcements that find their way into my inbox says so. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 356, a week or so away from the #S17 anniversary of that global revolution. And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast. And so in my social media web 2.0 user generated content attempt to maintain content for this blagh and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible, some of those events are as follows because hey, it’s less writing sometimes, I think.

Commemorate 9/11/01 Concert: Sunday, September 9th, 2012, 2:00pm. Wombat In Combat, Comrades, Alien, Mans Gin, Atruth, Carla Npsg, David Peel. Tompkins Square Park, 7th Street Ave A, New York, New York. And from what I Carla Npsg blogger know for this event, more bands and speakers to be announced. And I think the title of that event and the history of that park speaks for itself.

Go: a community-curated open studio project : On September 8–9, 2012, from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm, artists across Brooklyn will open their studio doors, so that you can decide who will be featured in an exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. And I just know #gobrooklynart is happening this weekend because I have received what seems like a million come look at my art in my studio emails and announcements from what seems like a bazillion different artists in a million different locations who will be showing their artwork as part of this event.

Spectra Showdown: And in case you haven’t heard, some big oil company is looking to blow up the ground in New York and New Jersey to run a fracked pipeline through it, or something like that. Frack is wack.

WHAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR:

The right of all NYC citizens to be free from a radioactive pipeline coming into our city and into our homes with our cooking & heating fuel.

Texas Gas vs. the People of NYC

Spectra, you’ve been warned. Get out of Town, We don’t like your kind around here.

They’ve been laying the infrastructure and groundwork to move in. They’ll be importing hydro-fractured gas (using this most toxic type of extraction method) into the West Village, thereby creating more demand for this gas, thereby creating more hydro-fractured sites across the country, including our very own upstate New York and Catskills, and thereby endangering our water supply. It looks definite that Spectra will break ground next week.
We are going to prepare ourselves to shut them down on arrival. It’s Showdown time! Put on your toughest Clint Eastwood face, bring your signs, noisemakers, snacks, puppets, instruments, songs, chants and prepare to tell the dirty extraction industry, “Go ahead. Make my day.”

Wear a costume! Bring a sign, an instrument, anything to help spread the word to the people most affected by this, the residents of the NYC and NJ.

WHAT:
The “New Jersey-New York Expansion Project” is a proposed high-pressure gas pipeline, varying in diameter from 42-30″ and slated to travel up the New Jersey shoreline, through the edge of Staten Island, under Jersey City and across the Hudson River, entering Manhattan at the Gansevoort Peninsula in the West Village. It is known more commonly by the name of its builder’s parent company, Spectra Energy.

WHY:
We must take a stand to defend our communities; upstate, NYC, New Jersey, all places where hydro-fracking rears its ugly head. The gas industry thinks they can sneak in and set up shop in NY and we’ll just lie there and take it while they destroy our farmland, water and air quality, expose our homes to radon and put us in a blast zone. They’re dead wrong.
Monday night we follow in the footsteps of our brave climate justice comrades and we fight back. Please join us.

WHERE:
Gansevoort and Hudson River Greenway – You can cross over the West Side Highway at 14th St., at Horatio St. or at W.12th St. to get to the Greenway. Look for the Department of Sanitation Building, and adjacent to this is a HUGE crane. This is the site. This is Spectra Energy.

SHARE WIDELY

Fun Fact: Spectra Energy is excluded from regulations of the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts.

Fun Fact: Radon Gas, according to the Surgeon General, is the 2nd leading cause of Lung Cancer in the nation today.

Radon Gas is what they want to pipe into your home via your cooking and heating gas. Thanks, but no thanks!!

Location is at the end of Gansevoort St and Hudson River Greenway.

for more information on Spectra Pipeline and others planned for NYC and upstate NY, please visit this website:

Tell the Texas Gas Men to Frack Off!

And the list of events goes on and on…. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.

And I know that there will be an Occupy Hoboken Art Show in that city of Hoboken because this Occupy Hoboken Art Show Facebook event invite and all of those artworks that I am trying to make for this Occupy Hoboken Art Show and also that flyer that finds itself posted above says so, I think.

An Occupy Wall Street Drum Circle




Hey yet again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blagh. And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 67. And Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Together are still moving fast. And there was an Occupy Wall Street drum circle in that city of New York a couple of days ago. And I know there was a OCCUPY BLOOMBERG’S MANSION DRUM CIRCLE PROTEST / ANTI-DICTATOR ART SHOW drum circle near that Central Park the other day because this facebook event invite and all of these OWS Protesters Bring Drum Circle To Mayor’s Home news articles says so. And that Mayor Bloomberg’s Assistant: EPIC FAIL YouTube video that finds itself posted above, well that just seems to Mayor Bloomberg’s Assistant: EPIC FAIL drum circle performance art speak for itself. And that Occupy Wall Street drum circle near Mayor Bloomberg’s house YouTube video that also finds itself posted above, well it just seems to Occupy Wall Street drum circle near Mayor Bloomberg’s house rock. And so that Facebook event invite read something like “OCCUPY BLOOMBERG’S MANSION DRUM CIRCLE PROTEST / ANTI-DICTATOR ART SHOW. November 20 at 2:00pm until November 21 at 2:00pm. SHOW UP/ARRIVE AT 17 EAST 79 STREET AT 2PM TODAY!

PROTEST! Art Exhibition

And so I came across this posting from another one of those blogs that finds itself in internetland…

And being that the title of this blog finds itself called Occupy Art that seemingly wants to support those Occupy Wall Street protests with all things Occupy Wall Street art, it seems fitting to mention on this blog that Theater for the New City will be having a “PROTEST!” art show, in addition, or at the same time, or before, or during our Occupy Art Show at Theater for the New City November 12th also. And we would like to invite you to view the “PROTEST!” art exhibition while you are at the Theater for the New City during the Occupy Art Show also.

"Occupy Art" Show At Theater For The New City




Hey again Bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog. And an Occupy Art Show at Theater for the New City is happening on November 12th in that neighborhood of the Lower East Side now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes maybe, to be found in that city of New York to be found in that country of North America. And that “Occupy Art” Show at Theater For The New City is happening on a date so far away as I blah blog this post, that I can’t even think that far, I think, sometimes, maybe. Though that event seems to be happening amongst a seemingly bazillion other Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Together events. And in case you have been stuck in the stone age or under one of those rocks and haven’t heard of Occupy Wall Street by now, the description of that movement or revolution reads something like “All day occupation (possibly longer) of Wall Street to oppose in numbers the corruption, financial treachery, oligarchy, and forced debts imposed on us by an irresponsible and unapproachable Wall Street (world financial center) sister protests may also take place in similar California Financial Centers if enough interest is shown. This is a peaceful protest and violence will not be tolerated.” And also another Occupy Wall Street Facebook event that reads something like “The Occupation Has Begun. Join us at Zuccotti Park (Liberty St & Trinity Place) in NYC beginning on September 17, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices”. And those Occupy Art photos that I posted above, well they just seem to Occupy Wall Street Occupy Art speak for themselves. And so that Occupy Art or is it Occupy Art NYC post that I came across reads something like:

We will have an art, performance and exhibition pop up party called ” Occupy Art” to be held at Theater For The New City on Saturday, November 12th from 4 pm on.
This event is inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests. We are looking for art, performance and video to install during the event.

"No Comment" Art Show

Hey again bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog. And as far as I blagher know, Occupy Wall Street is still happening and it’s Occupy Wall Street Day 20. And a No Comment Art Show is happening amongst a seemingly bazillion other events as part of that Occupy Wall Street worldwide event. And that description for that event reads as follows. And that photo that finds itself posted above, well it just seems to Occupy Wall Street speak for itself. And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State. Have a great Occupy Wall Street, art events and more day. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

We will mount an open art performance and exhibition party called ” No comment” to be held at the historic JP Morgan building at 23 Wall Street on Saturday Oct 8th from 2 PM on.
This event will support the Occupy Wall Street protests. We will hold a silent auction of the art to raise funds to support the protests. We are looking for art, performance, video, to install during the event. Stand for art against power and have a great time doing it.

We have a beautiful building right at the corner of Wall and Broad Street at 23 Wall Street . It is known as the JP Morgan building . It is the most capitalistic corner on Earth. It is a 25,000 square foot historic space in a very contested area. The show preceding the Pop-up show that will take place on Saturday October 8th is called ‘No Comment”. Marika Mairorova created “Loft in the Red Zone” an exhibition that exhibited artists responses to Sept 11th- ten years later. The Occupy Wall Street movement can be considered a healing for the contentious wound of 9/11. Many have objected to business as usual, Wall Street , capitalism as practiced. The fanatics that destroyed the World Trade Center and other targets had ideas about Western Society that had some relevance, despite their methods. This year the power of oligarchs has been transformed by people meeting and holding space. Where this movement is going is anyone’s guess. Governments have fallen, secrets revealed, revolutions started, evolution occurring in real time in public view. it is such a difference from hidden cabals of the past. secret meetings hidden from public view. Process is visible as art and public truth. The Pop-up show supports the process that has been visible in Occupy Wall Street movement has invigorated thoughtful ideas about society, power and political process.
We, at Loft in the Red Zone, are very much looking forward to this collaboration….. Please help spread this call to creative action !!!

Urban Artists Collaborative

Okay Bullet Space isn’t really having an art opening tomorrow as far as I blogger know, and this following event has already come to pass. It’s just that this blog wants to confuse me sometimes and this is yet another one of those Orwellian news speak posts with its times, dates and histories in that attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible.



Bullet Space is having an art opening tomorrow. They are one of the eleven remaining squats that have survived the gentrification and genocide of a neighborhood and have been bought out or sold out in the Lower East Side that is now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes maybe. And they are now homesteaders or something like that. Bullet Space is a really cool place that has had many theater, art and performance events over the years. And the only thing that seems to be constant is change. And there is a poem that I once remembered:

Long Live The Lower East Side

Long Live The Revolution of the Pseudo Anarchist Hippy Bohemian Squatter Revolutionary Lower East Side In Alphabet City where God Bless America becomes God Fuck America and red white and blue becomes red and black and where the capitalist capitalize off the capitalism of the capital.

With your gentrified glorified tenements and artists coffee lounge lounges riddled with the blood of the long lost past that had the horses running through it, the pigs running round it, and the helicopters hoovering over it. The bandshell that stood as a symbol of freedom for all long torn down, lost and forgotten. NO POLICE STATE, NO HOUSING NO PEACE, F… THE CURFEW, FREE THE LAND, free that park, that park everywhere. Freedom and utopia a thing of the past.

So now in Alphabet City I walk down your streets conformed to the conformity of the conformed and the conformist. Class War Class War on the poor run into the river and running to the river.

Flight of fight, sink or swim. Can you swim or will you die. Your skeletons of the war torn survivors walking the streets, your ghosts and their spirits scattered abroad and the ashes of your people who have come and gone in the struggle, of the struggle, from the struggle and the ashes of your people some dead some alive and some who have survived to shed their blood and skin and to tell the tale and conform to this thing called conformity.

Yeah, first it was them and then it was me. Whose gonna be left when big brother comes. Naked I have come from my mothers womb and naked shall I return thither to the dust where I come from.

Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Long Live the Lower East Side.

And if you are in this New York City neighborhood tomorrow, this event may be worth checking out.

Make Music New York 2011

And that festival of what seems like the end all of the be all of free music events of Make Music New York is happening again this year. And Make Music New York is a live, free musical celebration across the city that takes place each June 21, the longest day of the year. On that day, hundreds of public spaces throughout the five boroughs become impromptu stages for over 1,000 free concerts. And I know that music and arts festival for practically everyone who is an artist, musician or anything in between is happening again this year because some friends who are playing there, that Metro New York Newspaper Program, Time Out New York and all of those Facebook invites for that Make Music New York event say so. And that program seems to read like no other program before or after it with seemingly a million, bazillion musicians, artists and any other kind of performer in between listed as playing at seemingly a million, bazillion and more places throughout that city of New York on this June 21st of a solstice day. And according to that Make Music New York website, some of those performances and events listed on that schedule include Make Music New York’s 4th Annual Punk Island curated by ABC NO RIO’s HC/Punk Collective on Governors Island with over 50 punk bands, Mass Appeal where you can bring your own instrument and join one of 17 massive concerts, Make Music Wall Street, Mass Appeal Mass, Inuksuit, Yoko Ono’s Secret Piece, Swelter: Brass on Central Park Lake, Sing For Hope Pop-Up Pianos, Second Line Down the High Line with Hungry March Band, Mike Doughty at City Winery, Hoketus, Columbia University’s Miller Theatre in an event co presented and sponsored by places like Joe’s Pub, River To River, Carnegie Hall, Jazzmobile, Central Park Summerstage, MATA, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Symphony Space, American Opera Projects, WNYC, GigMaven and many, many, many more. Have a great music, art and more day.
