Working Class/Avant Garde by Various Artists
Today for one day only Red Hook loses its mind over the hottest artists in Brooklyn. Most of that hotness is due to the extreme heat wave hitting New York City right now but part of it has to do with their output. All of these individuals put out such a wide variety of art and have been able to touch the lives of millions. Out of those millions only a handful truly understand and that is what the reading today was made for: for that communal spirit that comes with a mighty fine reading.
Mary Boo Anderson does it all. With a middle name that suggests she may be a ghost, if she is a ghost she is a friendly one and not one of those “ghost-busting” worthy ones. Her art is everywhere and it changes lives. Some of her art has appeared on Mom’s Fridge which is impressive as Mom does not put merely anything on her fridge but only the art of the highest calibre.
Eric Baker rules, plain and simple. Anybody looking to buy real estate in the tri-state area ought to give him a call. When he isn’t selling real estate he is busy changing ink jet cartridges. Recently Eric Baker announced that he is having a child which will probably change his life, probably at least. Much of his life has to do with finding people houses to turn into homes. With the arrival of a child he will do that for himself in his greatest real estate sale ever. FYI, I am Eric Baker and this is what I do.
Deirdre Coyle is a non-practicing mermaid, such a shame. The world needs more mermaids. Most mermaids live out in Coney Island in Southern Brooklyn, hoping for the best. Like Mary Boo Anderson, she is real big into that whole putting stuff on Mom’s Fridge lifestyle. People simply adore Mom’s Fridge for it contains homemade lemonade she bought at Whole Foods.
William Lessard knows that Rembrandt deserved a cell phone. Back then though the technology simply wasn’t there. In time, when there are time machines, there will be a way of doing it effectively. Until then there are millions of people with cell phones taking pictures of whatever their heart desires.
Melissa McDaniel gets lit, very lit. Thanks to her efforts people are able to find out about whatever literary event might be occurring in New York City. Usually there are a lot. Her work has fortunately increased the number of literary events, resulting in a positive feedback loop.
A true leader can be found with Adam Tedesco. Those unaware ought to check out his incredible work at Reality Beach, the kind of online literary magazine that is truly all-encompassing. People can spend literally hours there taking everything in with one majestic swoop. He writes like sheer madness and his work represents some of the best things happening on the Internet.
This is happening, happening soon. Sorry for the short notice. Sometimes life works out that way.
