Oh, what fun it is to spot treasures in the trash. I can’t help but wonder what decided the sad fate of this very fun-looking pink toy car, whose official name is the Disney Minnie Mouse Hot Rod Coupe Ride-On Toy by Kid Trax. While this polka dot marvel does not look terribly Hot Rod-like to me, it sure is a sweet ride. Let’s check it out!
This car features a Reclining Passenger Seat, and the dual side mirror appears to be in good working condition.
Drive in luxurious comfort with the spacious Minnie Mouse-Shaped Driver’s side Headrest! Also note: Vanity License Plates!
Hello Kitty fans surely will appreciate the Bow detail on the windshield. Factory-fresh models sell for $267.00 (plus shipping) on sale now at Walmart!
Spotted On Avenue C Between 5th and 6th Streets, East Village, NYC.
Scope Art NY is a fantastic art fair that completely surprised me with its broad representation of pop surrealist art — my favorite! I discovered a bunch of cool new galleries including Haven Gallery, located in Northport, Long Island, whose represented artists reminded me fondly of all the amazing shows I used to go to at the late great Jonathan LeVine Gallery. While I was visiting their booth, I was naturally drawn to this very pink oil-on-wood painting of a fox and deer, engaged with each other in a sort of magical clearing. This stunning piece is entitled The Mischievous Heart Returned and it is by Jennybird Alcantara, a Contemporary Surrealist painter. Aside from being totally visually rad — because, pink — if you take a very close look at the heart (which has legs, interesting) being cradled by the fox, you can see that it has teeny, tiny . . . vagina.
This past January, I made my first trip to the New York Times Travel Show at the Javits Center, because I am always game for new experiences to bring you on this rad blog. The show was amazing, and it inspired me to consider traveling to all sorts of exotic lands that I had previously never even considered visiting. But for reasons that should not need explaining, I had the most fun visiting the L.G.B.T.Q. Travel Pavilion. It was there that I met the men of Vacaya, which is the only large-scale travel company on earth serving the entire LGBTQIAPK community (IAPK = Intersex, Asexual, Polygamous / Polyamorous, Kink). Vacaya was giving away a Gay Cruise, and since I have the single best story ever about a Gay Cruise (which was told to me a decade ago by my friends Ross and Scott), I had to share the story with them. They all agreed that is was excellent.
Also known as The Vacayans, these handsome guys were so friendly and adorable that I was compelled to snap this fantastic photo of them, smiling and looking awesome in their Pink T Shirts, to capture the moment. I joked that I was going to make them my Pink Thing of the Day, but then I thought ‘why the fuck not, just do it!’ If you were gay, wouldn’t you want them to help you plan your next vacation? I sure would!
I realize that people may not be booking a lot of travel just at the moment, but, for all of my LGBTQ etc readers, when you are ready to venture out into the world again and want to plan your next adventure, please visit MyVacaya.com, and tell them the Worley Gig sent you.
I saw these fun Pink Pens with an attached Flamingo Tassel at the check out counter when I was buying a selection of random cheap stuff (knit gloves, steak knives, scented candles) at a 99 Cents Store on Delancey Street. If you were feeling ‘crafty,’ you could totally take that chain off and attach the tassel to a purse, or make a super cool necklace out of it as well.
Yes, I know it’s way too early for Christmas but I could not resist showing you these delicate, ice Pink Hamsa Hand tree ornaments by Cody Foster & Co, the same people who make the highly collectible David Bowie Ornaments that I wrote about last December. In the months between now and the holiday season, perhaps you can find other uses for them in your home decor, such as hanging one above a home alter?

This vintage metal cocktail tray is absolute perfection and a dream to own for any fan of mid-century modern design! Embellished with a design of assorted Pink Cocktail Glasses and a boarder of prancing Pink Elephants, this 5 x 7-inch tray, officially known as a “tip tray,” was originally sold in sets of four. Currently, lucky collectors can find them in stores that specialize in vintage pop culture collectibles, and on eBay and other auction sites.
Happy Valentines Day, Bitches! Remember a while back when I stumbled upon this Pink Graffiti Mail Box on Chrystie Street? I didn’t know it at the time, but the box was part of the Love Letters Project by an LA-based street artist who calls himself Poet. Through the magic of Instagram, Poet (#poetwastaken) made himself known to me and I’ve been stalking his art ever since.
In January, Poet was back in NYC creating more Pink Mail Boxes like this one on Elizabeth Street near the corner of Broome Street. As you can see, many people stop to photograph it for their own Instagram feeds. Very meta.
I thought it would be a perfect Pink Thing for Valentine’s Day! Watch for more cool art by Poet to hit the blog in the coming weeks!
If you enjoy drinking and are about to celebrate your final days as a Bachelorette, turning 70, or being the World’s Best Mom, maybe your party needs a few of these bright pink party goblets that I spotted in a bargain store in the Financial District (no, that is not an oxymoron). I think these are selling for $3.99 each.
Here’s another entry in this rad blog that I invite you to file under “Things You See at Kroger.” This box of Strawberry Frosted Shredded Wheat Cereal caught my eye when I was grocery shopping with my sister while visiting California at Christmas. Because the search for Pink Things observes no Holiday!
