October 25, 2011

First off, go check Goggla’s photo blog, The Gog Log for more photos from the Chillmaster Dance Party Five. Just click here to check them out: Chillmaster Dance Party V.

Okay, it’s Monday and that’s the night I go out and six photos in a specific area of New York and marry them up with songs and lyrics that I think add to the photos for one reason or another. Tonight I’d thought I’d take a trip to Occupy Wall Street and see what’s happening. You may or may not agree with what’s going on down there, but so far I’ve yet to hear anyone who’s actually gone down there say anything negative about the protest. Contrary to some reports, it’s not just “dirty hippies” down there, it’s an interesting cross section of people of all ages and races coming together for something they believe in. One thing they have achieved is opening up a dialogue that wasn’t so prevalent before. Let’s go down and get a sixpack of photos.

Here we are at the Cortlandt Street stop. Time to start clicking.

They say that's money can't buy love in this world,
But it'll get you a half-pound of cocaine and a sixteen-year old girl,
And a great big long limousine on a hot September night,
Now that may not be love but it is all right.

Please, don't wake me, no, don't shake me,
Leave me where I am - I'm only sleeping.

And I don't know a soul who's not been battered,
I don't have a friend who feels at ease,
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered,
Or driven to its knees.

Under pressure—that burns a building down,
Splits a family in two,
Puts people on streets.

I'm a model you know what I mean,
And I do my little turn on the catwalk,
Yeah on the catwalk on the catwalk yeah,
I do my little turn on the catwalk.

All in a dream, all in a dream,
The loading had begun,
They were flying Mother Nature's
silver seed to a new home in the sun.

Bonus Photo From The Duncester!
The Duncester sent in this wigged out  photo of himself in a  green wig of his own! It was taken in the early ‘90’s at a ski resort in Utah. Nice one, Duncester, thanks for sending it in!

Did someone kidnap Gumby or does he have a twin? He seems to be more of an activist than I thought!

Good six pack! Love that Beatles song.

This is further visual evidence that what the world needs now is a Gumby's Official Guardian Order.

You and Duncester can certainly rock the green wig!! Feeling urge to buy a green wig....

@GENE: Wow. He should apply for a ™ on a mixture of water and vinegar contained in a satchel.

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercsp

@Goggla: They just borrowed him for the photo op! Gumby's very popular down there!

@Britta: Thanks, that's one of my favorite Beatles songs too!

@csp: Agreed! TO G.O.G.O!

@GENE: Thanks for the link! And now, MTV gets in on the act, can a Lifetime movie be far behind?

@Lindsay: Wear it to the next Chillmaster Dance Party!

@MAD ............. UFB ! .... MTV ? ..... I'd rather watch Maury Povich .......

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@GENE: I heard Maury's down there now doing paternity tests!

October 25, 2011 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

What was Billy Squier doing in Utah? And, speaking of the west, Occupy Oakland was busted up by cops with "chemical agents." But, yet, they welcome Carson Palmer with open arms? That just ain't right.

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBiff

Carson Palmer is the man !

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@M.A.D. and GENE; Whodedaddywhodedaddywhodedaddywho......

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJaws the Cabbie

@Biff: I don't know who Carson Palmer is...any relation to Emerson, Lake or Daly?

@GENE: See above.

@Jaws: I'm not the Daddy, but I'm not going anywhere near Maury and his tests!

Today's episode of OWS brought to you by MTV, a Viacom company, owned by National Amusements.

You are a changed man Marty! You must have watched the Ralph Nader doc on cable recently! You go from BarFly to Revolutionary who has gone green! Power to the People and Gumby!

@Jaws: "Mary Poponovich" Ha ha ha!

@csp: Irony at its finest hour!

@Professor Dungpie: Viva la Gumby!

October 25, 2011 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

I love the tile work in the subways. I'm glad Gumby gets a lot of positive attention when you go out, he deserves to feel special. I hope The Duncester enjoyed our beautiful state on his visit way back when!

Thanks for the Neil nightcap, he still uses that upright piano on tour.

October 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAl

@kari: I like the tiles too, some night I'll have to ride around and take tile photos. People really love Gumby, it's too hilarious!

@Al: You're welcome, I thought you'd like that video!

Hey Geraldo, why don’t you walk up to that Old Navy gentleman and ask him why he is wearing a Gumby purse?


October 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDuncester

@rr: I'm looking forward to one of your forty-fived fuel rants one of these days! Spill your guts! And a perfect quote as always, love them!

October 25, 2011 | Registered CommenterMarty After Dark

Duncester...yea right...why?...that's a damn good ?...just a thought he's got gumby issues...

MAD...what? you want me to blow lunch on your shoes?...


October 25, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterraginrr

@Duncester: I would love that!

@rr: Yeah, why not, a free lunch is a free lunch, even all over my shoes!
