Elizabeth Knight

Williamsburg, NY based jewelry designer, Elizabeth Knight has taken my breath away with one particular design in mind, her large Water Cuff from her Water collection.  The appearance on the cuff seem to be frozen water drops in a scattered and organic design but- its actually oxidized sterling silver and its handmade(just like every other wonderful design)!

“Dastardly”-ness & One Dastard Who Would Be Governor

Some caveman named Carl Paladino wants to be governor of New York but recently said in a Brooklyn speech/hate act:

“I don’t want them [my children] brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option—it isn’t.”

Air Guitar @ Brooklyn Bowl

On April 9th, a crowd of Brooklynites gathered to watch the gods of the most elusive instrument of all -the air guitar- perform.

Not My People?

Walking around Union Square, being a big, fat consumer, I couldn’t decide what color oxfords would be best: black or brown? What would be best for a lady who loves to wear color?! I asked a random girl who from a distance looked to have good fashion sense. “Brown. you know, all those L train . . . → Read More: Not My People?

Convoy Rocks Glasslands

Glasslands seems to be shrinking. Every time I go in there, they’ve added another bar, or level. They used to be BYOB or whatever else you had on hand. Ever since the powers-that-be made it such a slick, official venue, (to keep up with the rest of burgeoning Williamsburg) it’s lived up to . . . → Read More: Convoy Rocks Glasslands


After my sweaty second behind the black voting booth curtain, I hopped on the L train to escape Manhattan. I headed for the emptier streets off Lorimer Street. I was on my way to the Union Docs ( community house, a non-profit documentary artscollaborative and the home of a friend. I hoped this . . . → Read More: Obamanator
