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!
