Killin' It 039: On the Road with Dr. Sketchy's

Friday, Molly Crabapple, Melissa Dowell, Tim Kellen , and I jumped on a rain and headed over to Maryland to Intervention Con, where Molly was invited to be a guest speaker.  Armed with a bag full of bangles, blue paint, and skulls we began our journey.  We promised to party like rock stars and deliver a damn good Dr. Sketchy's performance.  A few hours later, this is what we unveiled.  Kali-Ma in all her glory.

What we left was this:

There was many giggles to be had over the childlike glee shameless mirror self-portraits bring.

And of course there is always Hooters, the most evil place on earth.

Of course after the destruction of Hooters, one must celebrate with champagne and tiny skulls, like a true rock star.  If you're not doing it this way, you're just not doing it right.

We are very sorry for Kali's destruction of the bathroom.

The morning after large cappuccinos were a must have.  They are of course the nectar of the Gods.

Thank you to my friend Gabriel Velez for his wonderful photographs.  I'll be writing a blog and an article on Blue Michael and AZ Araujo for the upcoming Constellation with photos by the multi-talented Melissa Dowell. Images from the runway will be up on the Constellation blog soon.

Killin' It 014: Dumpster of Love Party

Friday, February 12, 2010 at 9:30pm

The Blood Dumpster, a NYC-based art collective, celebrates another year of art, beauty and mayhem with a pre-Valentine’s bash in Brooklyn. The event, entitled Dumpster of Love, will bring together the creative class in Brooklyn with great drink specials - $3 Yuengling drafts and $5 Absolut cocktails, an all-night raffle and more creativity then may be legal in most states. The party is part art show that will feature many members from the collective’s wide range of visual magicians. Expect artwork on display from Melissa Dowell, Rebecca Memoli, Jeff Moore, Aubrey Roemer, Nate Bear, Laura Galbraith, Vincent True, Tim Kellen, Katelan Foisy and many more.

The Blood Dumpster is bringing along a few artists of the musical persuasion for this one. Funk House DJs, Jason Orrell and Tobeytech start the night off right, leading up to Rhinostrich’s 8-bit inspired melodies, then on to Epileptic Peat, a bad ass 8-string bassist armed with an artillery of pedals, the band Skullbuggery, a sea shanty styled child of the Reverend Billy choir, and Belltone Suicide, a Massachusetts noise artist. Not to mention, an appearance of Memo the Clown! Dumpster of Love takes place Friday February 12th, 2010 from 9pm and lasts until closing, at TBD, 224 Franklin Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Arrive early for free swag and to scoop up some raffle tickets, the prizes get only get better as the night goes on.

Take the G train to Greenpoint, exit at India street.
