Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Cotton Candy Machine!

Just looking at this Pink Cotton Candy Machine takes me back to a dozen school carnivals. Good times!

Don Hill’s Night Club Closes Its Doors Forever

Well, this is a bit of a surprise; but then again, maybe not so much. Less than a month after the death of its former owner, it’s been announced that live music and dance club Don Hill’s is officially bankrupt and will be closing, effective immediately. Current owners Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny were apparently overextended in the wallet area from running other restaurant and nightclub ventures here and in Los Angeles and couldn’t seem to get the rent check in the mail on time. You know how it is when you’re a wealthy, jet-setting hipster.  Still, I’m not sure why club owners don’t seem to grok that this kind of thing happens when you don’t pay your rent. Sure, Don Hill’s was a legendary dive where everybody went do drugs and party with rock stars (I know I had many good times there), but who really gives a shit? Nostalgia goes right into the toilet when the landlord has bills to pay. The same exact thing happened when the late Hilly Kristal let the rent on CBGB lapse for a year and then had the nads to feed the public outrage over the place being shut down. It’s worth noting that the new tenant in the former CBGB’s space at Bowery and Bleecker, hot shot menswear designer John Varvatos, is also a hardcore rocker who turned his new boutique into a shrine to its former inhabitant, preserving many of the original walls and fixtures and selling vintage stereo equipment, vinyl LPS and coffee table books by Mick Rock. On the flipside, Nur Khan told Page Six that the building will be turned over to developers, noting that the property offered a “moneymaking opportunity unconcerned with preserving Don’s legacy.” Clearly, real estate owners aren’t very sentimental in New York City.

Photo of the Day: Geoffrey Meets En Esch!

Geoffrey gave me permission (basically, I said, “This is going on my blog” and he said “OK”) to repost this photo of him posing with En Esch (aka Nick Schandelmaier) of KMFDM. It is the best photo ever.

RIP Punk Legend Poly Styrene

British punk rock pioneer Poly Styrene (born Marianne Elliott-Said) passed away Monday evening (April 25th) after a brief fight with Breast cancer.  The distinctive vocalist, best known for fronting the seminal British Punk band X-Ray Spex, whose debut album, Germ Free Adolescents, came out in 1978, was 53 years old. Ironically, her latest album, Generation Indigo, is released just today in the US.  Rip Poly.

Dr. Rockso On the Dollar Bill!

Someone with a sense of humor, a slight artistic bent and a love of Metalocalypse drew the face of Dr. Rockso, the Rock & Roll Clown (he does Cocaine) on a dollar bill. So, it gets to be on my blog. Because it is awesome.

Nothing Says Happy Easter Like Hello Kitty Body Paint!

Hello Kitty Painted Body

Happy Easter to all my Peeps! I’m not sure if the lady in these photos is celebrating Easter, but she sure is showing off her admirable figure highlighted by lovely spring floral colors, and she looks just awesome, despite the fact that Hello Kitty has to be involved. Maybe her shoes could fit a little bit better, but other than that, all good.
