Peep this! Not only are the artists featured in this show all amazing in their own right, but a bunch also happen to be friends of mine and subsequently the raddest dudes on the planet. The show kicks off at 4pm, Oct. 11 with the film 'Braddock, PA in Context', and moves into what very well may be the last BBQ of the season. 6 o'clock hits off with the art sale, raffle, and general schmoozing. Be sure to buy stuff, as the show is benefitting Transformazium, an arts based resource center. Located at 210 Kent Ave., Brooklyn NY.

While waiting in line for the brain surgeons at the Highline Ballroom in NYC last night to figure out the guest list for the Pretenders show, a guy in front of me turned and said 'Well, maybe you can get into Madison Square Garden instead?' I asked him 'For what? He replied 'Madonna's there tonight, Isn't that ironic?' I didn't get the irony. Anyway, as he was watching all the color drain from my face I said 'No thank you.
