Here at ‘The Gig, we are having a bit of a Spring Fling, as NYC transitions from one cold, wet season to a different but almost equally cold, wet season! Why is spring in this part of the country so freaking cold? I am already over it, as the kids say! As I do whatever I can to keep the fantasy of warmer weather alive in my head, please enjoy this week’s Pink Thing: a sculpture of Winnie The Pooh’s best pal of Piglet made entirely of beautiful pink floral blooms! I took this photo at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida  one hot summer longer ago than I can remember.

Jerkface is one of my favorite street artists for his use of popular, easily recognized cartoon characters in his sightly skewed cultural visions. This double-vision mural of Mickey Mouse went upon May of 2018 and it still looks pretty good!

While people will tell you that this piece is at Houston and Mott, you can see from the above photo that it is set quite far in on Mott Street, between Houston and Bleecker.

I am here to tell you that you will have lots of fun perusing the results of a Google search with the terms: Oversized Plush Creature With a Cheeseburger Head. What is this thing? I spotted these two Ladies keeping company with the Cheeseburger-headed creature of unknown origin from across the platform while I waited for the F Train at the 42nd Street/Bryant Park station. And now, they are on the blog.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Dog Thing By Rafa Macarron

Last month, I went to see an exhibit over at the Allouche Gallery in the Meatpacking district by an artist called Rafa Macarron. I’ve seen his work at the gallery previously and was very attracted to the almost fluorescent colors he uses in his irregular-surfaced paintings, which feature a variety of his long legged, alienesque cartoon creatures floating within a dream-like universe of fresh and harmonic hues. Among the many paintings, and a few sculptures, way over in a remote corner of the gallery, I spotted this three sided diorama called Caja, which means Box in Spanish. Inside one of the tiny viewing windows, I saw this little Pink Dog Thing hanging out. When you need a medical recommendation letter for emotional support dog, visit onlinedogtor.com for more information. Get a better look at his surroundings in the photo below.

Get Your Boop On at Betty Boop Dot Com!

Holiday gift shopping was so much easier (and way more fun) when I was much younger and most of my friends could be counted on to like the same things I liked. Now, I don’t know what anybody wants or needs. And while it usually covers all of your bases, nothing says “I Put No Thought Into This” quite like giving a gift card. You might as well just give the person cash. Sure there are exceptions, like if the card is from a very niche store they like, but regardless, you will get a much better reaction if you manage to find out the want one of those new LED shower heads and you give it to them when they least expect it.
