WTF, the Smith Family at BET Awards

Jaden, Willow, and Jada Pinkett Smith. I don’t even know how to comment on this one! It looks like someone ate Michael Jacksons closet and threw up on the read carpet.

Artists trade for medical benefits

Historically, artists have been able to exchange their wares for just about everything and now they can add Health Care to the list. The Artist Access Program at Woodhull Medical Center in Brooklyn allows artists to trade their services (mostly performance-based art, not physical artwork) for medical credits that they can use to cover medical costs. 40 ‘credits’ per hour, not too bad.

99X NYC Closed; R.I.P.


It’s clobberin’ time. Remember wondering where to get your Docs, Fred Perry gear, Merc suits, Vans, creepers, braces, football club scarves? Back in the day, 99X in NYC was the top shop to pick any of these up or even have them custom ordered. The staff knew their shit –  Hardcore, ska and punk (in that order) discoveries old and new, domestic and international, were always in rotation in the store. They’re closed as of now due to either the pressures of time or money. Maybe the wall of death of competition knocked them down on the dance floor: copycat stores on St. Mark’s, internet stores, malls, and local Fred Perry and Ben Sherman outposts could have killed the love. In the photo above, a worker can be seen scraping stickers off the wall. Looks like someone was smart enough to grab the store sign and flag. R.I.P.!

Now I have seen it all, maybe not!
