When: Saturday + Sunday, August 6 + 7, 2011, from 2:00pm-6:00pm
Where: Tompkins Square Park (East Seventh Street + Avenue A) in Manhattan

The SHADOW, New York's only underground newspaper publishing on the Lower East Side since 1989, along with Wombat in Combat, is presenting a free
punk show in Tompkins Square Park, featuring bands and performers that
...have been in our scene from the beginning as well as newer bands. We will
also have tables with political action groups, alternative media, and
more. We'll also have several guest speakers who will entertain and
provide the historic context behind the show.

These shows commemorate the 23rd anniversary of the infamous Tompkins
Square police riot of August 6, 1988, in which hundreds of "New York's
Finest" from all over the city descended on our neighborhood,
indiscriminately clubbing anyone in their sights in furtherance of a
non-existent midnight park curfew.

These shows also celebrate the vitality of the political activist and
counter-cultural scene that has survived on the Lower East Side, despite
the gentrification, soaring rents and lost venues that have contributed to
the cultural genocide now taking place in New York City.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Last post, but, is it bad that I sometimes inhale rubbing alcohol fumes to relieve tension?

Cause every now and then I'll like, inhale a bit, and then I feel it hit me in my brain, and I just feel, perked up and less stressed.

lol it's a terrible idea, I know.
Georgia is now lockdown. Let's see if my dumbass neighbors will go out for their drugs.

I'm about to buy a trowel and start digging catholes. I'm tired of waiting 30 minutes to take a shit and then having to force my intestines out all because I got constipated waiting for the bathroom.

This dumpster was amazing;I'd often found throwaways of the big liter bottles they ship syrup with codiene to pharmacies in. Because of the consistency of it there would always be an ounce or two in the bottle they didnt get out. I'd get 2 or 3, spatula scrape out the good, make some szrrrp, put on DJ screw and get faded. :)
