Closing Down Coney Island | 05:53 PM

I am quite pleased to announce that Jonny Porkpie will be part of the crew closing down Coney Island for the season this coming Friday. That's right, Sweet and Nasty and a startling police lineup of their cousins, cronies and ex-husbands will be giving Burlesque at the Beach a sexy sendoff it can't refuse.

Coney Island USA
1208 Surf Ave @ W. 12th St., Brooklyn
Friday, September 29th
SPECIAL EARLIER TIME! 9:00pm

Open Letter to the Conductor | 09:21 PM

Dear Conductor of the F Train that stopped at 15th Street/Prospect Park at about 9:15pm on Wednesday, September 20th, 2006,

Sir- the cameras that are installed in the 15th Street/Propect Park station, monitors placed so they are visible from the conductor's window, are there for a reason. If, for instance, you look in a screen, and see four people gathered around a baby carriage at the threshold of a door, you might venture to guess that there was something going on. For instance, the wheels of the baby carriage could well be caught in the gap between the car and the platform.

For future reference, helpful behavior on your part in this situation probably does not include: 1. Attempting to close the doors several times, further terrorizing the already-scared sister of the baby in the carriage, and 2. Announcing over the loudspeaker that we should "stand clear of the closing doors." For my part, I was not planning to stand clear of the closing doors until I was at least 75% sure that you would not kill a child as you pulled out of the station.

Regards,

Fourth Estate Compares Rebecca Hart to Everyone | 12:39 PM

Just finished MTing a press page for famous friend Rebecca Hart, who releases her latest album, "Crash & Strum", at the end of the month. (Come to the party!)

The clippings include some nice reviews for the album, which, between them, compare Rebecca to every female vocalist who ever recorded. Plus Steely Dan.
