Worleygig.com Celebrates Fifteen Years of Web Dominance!

Worleygig 15th Bday Meme
Worleygig Avatar By The Fabulous Dean “Dino” Haspiel

Holy Mother of God, can you even believe I’ve been writing Worleygig Dot Com, the world’s Raddest Blog, for fifteen solid years without stopping? It really is unbelievable: and yet, it is true. It was fifteen years ago today that The Worley Gig found its permanent home at this here domain, after first originating in print as a regular column in the East Village-based monthly arts and entertainment publication, The New York Hangover, and later moving on to great success at Pandemonium Online, followed by a few years of breaking new ground at Starpolish. What a long, strange trip it’s been.

All of these outlets are gone now, but The Gig Lives On! Why do I do it? Why do I continue to bring you the best of the New York City Art Scene, Rad Design, Music Video Clips that do not suck, awesome Food Adventures, Pop Culture from around the globe, the occasional Bacon thing, plus a brand new Pink Thing of the Day every single Friday like clockwork? I do it because I love writing this blog, and I love all of you for taking this journey with me!

Please follow us on Instagram at @gailpink61 for daily reminders to get your ass over here and discover what we’re up to and, and to say hello. Thanks as always for your continued readership!

Happy 14th Birthday, Worleygig.com!

What The Fuck Just Happened?

Im Sorry America

Photographed on November 8th, 2016 at 8 PM, near the corner of 14th Street and Avenue B. Looks like somebody knew something we didn’t.

Update 11/23/17: I just found out, Thanks to Instagram, that the artist is Matt Starr!

Well, I had to stop and snap some Instagram fodder when I walked by this restaurant (see B for Bozo rating in window) located on the north side of Houston Street just east of Avenue A.

I looked these up on the Interwebs, and apparently they are called “Bop Bags.”

Look how happy they are!

Worleygig.Com Goes to Eleven!

Happy 11th Birthday

Well, it’s June 10th again and that means it’s time to chalk up another banner year here at the Worley Gig, where today we are celebrating Eleven (11!) solid years of Web Dominance! Hurray for us! This past year has seen The Gig give pause to its competition with our unequalled coverage of Art, Bacon and Things that are Pink, as well as Food and Restaurant Reviews, consciousness-expanding coverage of Design and Lifestyle topics and our wildly popular new music series, Video Clip of the Week (which just turned one year old)! I can’t believe how much we rule!

Of course, we could not have achieved this level of success without all of our dedicated and enthusiastic readers. Thanks as always for all of your support, your faithful readership, for Tweeting and Posting our links via your social media outlets, and of course for your fun and insightful comments. Cheers to another great year!

Hey Douche! Put Your Phone Down And Watch Where You’re Going!

Fuck Your Phone
Stencil Street Art By Adam Dare, Photographed By Gail on Bleecker Street

On occasion, there will be an article in the paper or on the web about a person who inadvertently falls down an open manhole or (and this is especially fun if there is Video Documentation) who trips and stumbles into a fountain in the middle of a busy shopping mall, because he or she is so enraptured with gazing dreamily at his or her smart phone that they forget to watch where they are going. When I read these articles or see these videos, I am filled with an overwhelming feeling of schadenfreude. Because it is my pleasure to see you injured because you are too brain dead to put your phone down and pay attention to where you’re walking.

Fuck Your Phone
Spotted Again on Bowery and 1st Street

Just this past weekend, I was exiting the L Train at 14th street and First Avenue when a women ascending the stairs in front of me decided that the smartest choice to make at the moment was to hold everyone up so she could check her FaceBook/ Texts/ Instagram/ Twitter/ Email before she got above ground instead of making it her priority to get the fuck out of the subway, like a normal person. While I’ll admit to entertaining brief fantasies of her tripping and smashing her stupid face on the concrete, as I stepped over her fallen body while she spit out mouthfuls of blood and teeth, that didn’t happen. And that’s probably fortunate, because it would have been a real tragedy if she had taken out an innocent bystander on her way to the ground.

Happy 10th Birthday, Worleygig.com!
