I woke up Sunday morning to find a FaceBook message from my friend Michael containing an image in which he had Photoshopped my face onto the head of Barbie with flowing Pink Hair. As you can see, it is pretty sweet. I immediately posted it on Instagram (@gailpink61), where it has currently accrued more Likes than any other image I’ve yet posted.

Here is the original image. The resemblance is, of course, uncanny. Especially the slender, giraffe-like neck!

He also made one where he gave me awesome bangs.

I was on a Street Art Safari when I came upon this big game; a  mural of Prince (RIP), located on the side of the Graffiti Room restaurant at the corner of Kenmare and Mott Streets in downtown Manhattan. It looks like they are also having an Instagram contest:

So, head on down to the  Graffiti Room and get to snapping and ‘gramming!

NYC Public Phone Booth, Post-Jonas

Winter Storm Jonas dumped Two Feet of white, fluffy snow on NYC on Saturday, January 23rd, and the aftermath is fairly Instagram worthy. This public phone booth, which appears to be “occupied,” stands near the corner of West 53rd Street and 6th Avenue.

Disco Ball Christmas Tree

Geoffrey and I went all the way down town on a mission to investigate the Museum of Feelings, which turned out to be a bust, because the line was (realistic estimate) 90 minutes to 2 hours long. And we are about waiting in lines no. So, while we were down there (because Battery Park City is a fucking haul from our respective residences), we decided to just see what kinds of cool snaps we could take. Because Geoffrey is obsessed with the Instagram, and I know that I can always score a few blog hits with a fun photo.

And what we saw as soon as we walked into the Brookfield Place mall, which is what you have to walk through to get to the Museum of Feelings, was this awesome Christmas Tree studded with Disco Ball Ornaments. Super Groovy.

As you can see, the ornaments are  mix of the classic mirror disco ball variety, and red or green mirrored mosaic designs. Festive!

Very nice!

As we walked through the mall towards the water, we entered the famous Winter Garden, (which was destroyed in the 9/11 attacks, but as since been beautifully restored) and that is where the full-on Disco Ball Christmas Trees were hiding.

If you end up in that part of town for whatever reason during the Christmas Holidays, take some time to walk around and enjoy all of the decorations, because it is really beautiful down there.

Donald Trump is Street Art

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.
