Hey! This weekend is going to be pretty rad so I thought I'd spread the details around. Tonight at the ARM gallery on n7 between havemeyer & meeker "Tiny Masters of Today" - literally tiny people (11 yr olds) bang on the drums at Ben Frost's art opening. Later on there's the Rubulad, a day of action for Eric Ng, then Saturday's Michael Jackson party, and a warm and Sunny Sunday where I turn 26 and Callie and Orien also get old. Old! ||||||||||||||||||||||||TONIGHT|||||||||||||||||||||||| 1) THE ARM. Says Dan via Ian: Hello, This Friday December 8th from 7PM there will be an opening party for Ben Frost's show Don't Try This At Home at The Arm, 281 North 7th Street Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

AND AWESOME?!? a celebration of old-skool MJ. THIS SATURDAY - Dec 9th, partytime. 345 eldert st apt 206, corner of Irving. L train to Halsey $5 with free drink tikt or FREE with convincing crotch-grab and howl. *a note on this: i was able to ask later on what "reverse michael jacksonification" was, and, just as i feared it was literally people putting themselves in blackface and "whiteface." wtf, right? i think the idea was that the 3 black folks attending their party might put themselves in whiteface as though that was somewhat equitable. i mean, you wouldn't go to your friends house whose parent did of lupus and wear a "lupus face mask" right? it wouldn't become okay if this part featured lynchings of white people right? digging up the history of minstrelsy like that for fun just seems somewhere between massive oversight and batshit insane, can't decide which. i know they meant well, i'm a big fan of matt levy and my dear friend who lives with him, but this party was totally not okay in my view.
||||||||||||||||||||||||SUNDAY|||||||||||||||||||||||| It will be approximately twenty degrees warmer than it currently is. Rejoice! Also I will turn 26.
