Scott Ian’s Simpsons Guitar

Scott Ian Simpsons Guitar
Photographed By Gail at the Hard Rock Cafe, NYC

This guitar was custom made for Scott Ian of Anthrax when he was on The Simpsons. The front and back features every major and minor character on the show as well as an image of Scott. There were only two made and it took over 60 hours of work to complete.

You can see the likeness of Scott in the upper right hand corner of this photo of the guitar. He is on a Blue background if you need more help finding him, though he appears to be lacking his trademark beard thing.

SantaCon 2013 Descends on NYC

As the first official snowfall of the season accumulates on the streets of Manhattan, thousands of what I like to call “Frat Santas” have descended on our fair Metropolis to participate in the annual Pub Crawl ritual known euphemistically as SantaCon. Dressed in the manner of Santa Claus (give or take a White Beard of Red Hat) these people have only one goal: to get as wasted as possible while disguised as Jolly Old St. Nick. Be forewarned: As you navigate the sidewalks and gutters, be wary of spontaneously created piles of fresh yellow snow and be extra careful not to slip in the Times Square Eggnog!

The American Museum of Natural History has its Holiday Tree on display, and what’s special about this tree is that it is decorated entirely with Origami Ornaments! The theme of this year’s tree is Wicked, Wild and Wonderful, honoring the Museum’s new exhibition The Power of Poison. The ornaments were created especially for the tree by volunteers who began folding in July to complete hundreds of creations that are displayed on the tree and around its base. Here are some of our favorites from this years display!

The Museum of Natural History on Central Park West at 81st Street has this fun Dinosaur-shaped Spruce displayed at the Museum’s CPW entrance adjacent to the main stairs. It probably looks very cool at night, when it is lit up by tiny white lights!
