Oh my goodness! I am so excited to report that the new, third season of Baskets (one of my Top Five Favorite TV Shows) starts on Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018 on the FX Network Automation. Check your local listings for channel information and airtimes!
When we were walking back to our cruise ship after a lovely day in the very foggy port of St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, we passed by a store called Freak Lunchbox — which I absolutely had to check out, because Freak Lunchbox, WTF. Here is a story about just one of the crazy things we saw once we entered the store.
If you happen to pass a Freak Lunchbox store, please do yourself a favor and go inside, enjoy the fun and whimsical decor, and buy some candy!
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!
Street artist Ivan Orama is at it again, depicting polarizing celebrities and controversial public icons as McDonalds Restaurant’s clown mascot, Ronald McDonald. Previous victims have included Kim and Kanye, Michael Jackson and Mike Tyson, so it was only a matter of time until candidate for the GOP Presidential nomination, Donald Trump (a clown if there ever was one) received the Ivanorama treatment. Of course, Mr. OneTeas mines a similar vein of social commentary with his Wack Donald’s Project, but we say, the more, the merrier!
I only wish I had gotten to this poster before it had been defaced by one or more of Trump’s innumerable naysayers, but what can you do. At least Donald McTrump appears to have better hair! People were lined up to get this thing into their Instagram feed.
It looks like street artist Mr. OneTeas is at it again with his very fun Wack Donald’s Project, in which he paints the clown face of Ronald McDonald on various pop culture icons. I spotted John Lennon and Alfred E. Newman side by side on a traffic barrier at 26th Street and 11th Avenue in the Chelsea Gallery District.
