Flashing back to a fun day spent at the Five Points Festival back in June, 2018, we remember passing by this epic likeness of Brazilian model Paula Almeida by artist Angel A. You can see it for yourself at the southeast corner of West Street and Milton Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Judging from the date stamp on the above photo (origin unknown), this image comes from to us from several years in the future! In this photo, we see two “Action Figures,” as they are known, created in the likenesses of Ace Frehley of Kiss and Punky Meadows of Angel, two guitarists from rival ’70s rock bands, dressed in their distinctive costumes of that era, shaking hands in a gesture of solidarity and friendship. Let the homo-eroticism begin!

Somewhere in the UK near London, a sign marks the location of Bacon Street. I would like to live there.
I just about lost my mind the other day when I accidentally tripped over Punky Meadows’ Myspace Page ! Back in the ’70s, where all of the best music comes from, Punky was the guitarist for the progressive, glam-metal, pomp rock band, Angel. These days he apparently lives comfortably in the past and runs a tanning salon. Myspace is the greatest thing ever!
