Tips Street Performers Remember

kirsten anderberg | The trinkets and photos you tip a street performer with today, may end up as some of their most treasured family possessions 5 generations from now. You never know. Things with zero monetary value, to speak of, end up as some of buskers’ most prized tips. It will be interesting to see where that tip the Saw Lady received, the coin with the crown and clown on it, ends up, in the grand scheme of history. Will some archaeologist dig it up someday and claim it an ancient money they never knew of prior?! more...  0 Comments

Bikes, Death and Sacrifice: A Short Story of my Night and Critical Mass

onto | I started out biking from Brooklyn to Union Square to catch this months critical mass bike ride. Saw a friend on the bridge. "I'm heading off to Seaport to see Ted Leo". "Cool, I'm going to Critical Mass." "Have fun." "Later". I made it to Union Sq north by 7pm. Chilled for an hour listening to the Rev Billy give his shpiel with the Hungry Marching band behind him. Flyers galore, beautiful bikes and beautiful people too. About 30 scooter cops on Union Sq. east waiting. Another batch on broadway waiting to snatch us. Fuck it.

'What is This World Coming To?': Lesbians Retaliate After Sexual Harassment

Renee Leonowicz | On August 19, 2006 at 2 a.m. seven lesbians in the West Village responded to sexual harassment, and consequently a hate crime, by attacking him. According to recent coverage that blatantly contained as little inclusion of the women’s explanation as possible, a bootlegger crudely attempted at picking up one of the women, an action he describes as gentlemanly, to which she responded that she was a lesbian. He retorted with a bitter hateful expression, one that the media has not divulged, a mordant threat to fuck them all, and consequently flicked a lit cigarette in their direction, which burned one of them. Supposedly, these events solely led at least four of the women to pummel him with belts, and, ultimately, stab him. Currently, the women, whose ages have been recorded as ranging from 14-31 and 18-31, are being held at Riker’s Island on $50,000 bail/$150,000 bond on charges of assault, gang assault, attempted murder, and a hate crime. more...  37 Comments
