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.

A Free New York City Concert



And even though on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 194, and Occupy Wall Street and those global revolutions of a movement Occupy Together are still moving fast, I still find myself blogging about music, music and more music. And if it’s free with rsvp, then it’s for me, maybe. And even if it’s at a discount, then it’s for me, maybe. And so there is a free New York City concert at Brooklyn Bowl, to be found in that borough of Brooklyn to be found in that city of New York April 12th. And I know that there is a free New York City concert with this brass band versus this other brass band because this Facebook event invite and those photos that find themselves posted above says so. And that my free concert website reads something like “Here’s your chance to see a NYC based hip hop brass band and another band playing Afro Funk Banghra at one of our favorite venues, Brooklyn Bowl, for absolutely nothing….. In addition, ?uestlove will be following up this show with a DJ set, which won’t cost you anything extra if you’re already there.” And that Facebook event invite reads something like:

Join PitchBlak Brass Band and Underground Horns as they share the stage for the first ever BRASS CLASH at the beautiful Brooklyn Bowl! We are BEYOND PUMPED to be playing at one of our favorite venues in all of New York City – this will be a night to remember, and one not to miss!

Come out for a night of hard hitting music, deep grooves and thick rhymes as PitchBlak and Underground Horns keep you dancing all night long! After the BRASS CLASH, The Roots very own DJ ?UESTLOVE will be spinning tunes as part of the weekly Bowl Train ’til the morning hours!

See y’all there – CH’YEAH!

Get tickets here!

Have a great New York City music concert and more day.

The Bank

And in case you have been stuck in the stone age or hiding out underneath one of those rocks, you may have heard by now that on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day 183. And Occupy Wall Street and those global revolutions of a movement Occupy Together are still moving fast. And if I must web 2.0 social media user generated content say, that “we’re just renting this place out” YouTube video that finds itself posted above with all of its furniture being camped out in a bank is just funny, I think. And the mortgage meltdown continues. And somehow I came across this Fight BAC: Foreclose on Bank of America Facebook event invite the other day throughout my travels in internetland that reads something like:
“Bank of America (BAC) gambled with Americans’ homes and lost, but America has been the one to pay the price. Now BAC is trying to stave off the bankruptcy it deserves by kicking millions of Americans out of our homes.
We’re not going to let them. On March 15, Americans will move into BAC branches across the country and take back what’s rightfully ours: HOME. Bring a chair, a bed, a potted plant. Get ready to move in.
BAC has been foreclosing on America for years. But SPRING IS COMING, and America is ready to FIGHT BAC!
And that other US police arrest occupy protesters YouTube Video that also finds itself posted above with a description that reads something like:
“An estimated six to ten demonstrators including photographers were pushed shoved and arrested on Thursday in front of a downtown Manhattan Bank of America branch.”,
well it’s just not so funny, though that furniture on the street to illustrate that mortgage meltdown idea is kind of funny and ingenious, I think. And the mortgage meltdown continues. And what if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.
