3 out of 5 ain't bad, good dog needs home

Here's a Trust Your Struggle Story in the Jersey Journal.
The closing party is on Saturday September 8th.

Alright, we have recovered 3 of the 5 stolen mopeds. A special thanks to Henning who called me up on Monday. He had spotted someone on of the two stolen yellow mopeds, I called the cops and sure enough they stopped a kid the next day riding one without a helmut, plates, a license. This was one of the jewels of the collection, so even paying $120 to get it out of the impound lot was worth it. If you do see someone riding another yellow one, please offer the kid $120 and I'll pay you back. I would tell you to just steal the bike back, but with my luck it will be a diferent yellow moped ?

Carla & Kathleen (World of Balance) found a sweet dog, currently named Honey, strange enough, we had actually tried to pick it this dog by the impound lot. Honey is currently staying at my place, but only for a short time. She's about 1 1/2 years old, has her shots and has been spayed. She's is good socially and looks like this. email me at

This week is JC Pride week. Friday Night is an ladies only dance party @ Art House Space 1 McWilliams Place . DJ Hot Rod and mEgan will give the groove, come early, then venture over to L.I.T.M. at midnight for the after party.

Invisible Fields positively guided by the unseen...The works in the exhibit explore the theory of the existence of unseen "magnetic" forces that moves everything in nature, from birds in flight to the stroke of an artist’s brush. These forces influence some of the most awe-inspiring occurrences of beauty and grace that cannot be explained. Interpretations in the form of sculpture, installation, the written word and paintings.

Oh, it just keeps getting more out of's like these mannequins have lives of their own! Last week's Gingham-O-Rama was just insane, with the swimsuit/apron bombshell and Little Bo Peep kidnapping a small child off the street and the firemen feeding ice cream to Jailbait... WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT??! Well, all we can tell you is that we have a couple of Jailbait's friends coming in as mannequins tomorrow and they'll look fabulous with their hair by Balance and fashions from World of Style. So grab some ice cream from Tocino's next door or grab a glass of wine on us and get a load of the hijinx in our window! If you want a taste of what the fuss is all about, take a look at our Myspace slideshow!

Tony,If I find a motherfucker on one of ur bikes I'll lynch the motherfucker. Will do my best to be on the lookout.I'm promoting an event next Saturday, August the 25th at a bar called Caesar's in my neighborhood.It's open to the public. I have Steff spinning and Luke from the Corkscrew on the bar. I'm trying to get as many people to this thing as possible. It's really important because the bar is in the Lafayette (near Liberty State Park Light Rail) section of JC and we've been trying to bring Downtown people here since a few of us moved here a couple of years ago. The neighborhood is Rock N Roll Central and we're getting a chance to build an impression. It's the only area in JC right now that is kinda new.More and more people are moving here and we wanna do this shit right. Would you mind posting it in your events blog thingy? I'll give the info if you're down. -Peter

Hi, guys. I will be playing at Monkeytown in Williamsburg on Wednesday, September 5, at the businessman’s-special hour of 7:30 PM. This will be a (mostly) solo show, but I’ve got some guest stars lined up, too.

Charles Bissell of the Wrens will once again be providing the entertainment portion of the evening. This time around, he won’t be alone; Overlord will be doing a set, too. I’ll be playing synths for Overlord at this performance, so prepare yourself for a double-shot of me. Interesting note for Brooklyn rock aficionados: Sarah “Brockett” Brockett of Palomar will be on bass at this show, and Matt “Matt Houser” Houser, who used to play in Palomar, will be the Overlord drummer. It’s also George “The Overlord Himself” Pasles’s birthday. I’m looking forward to it.

Monkeytown is an unusual venue. The musicians play in the center of a large, square hung with gigantic video screens; audience members sit on sofas against the walls. Dinner is served during the performances. You’re expected to buy something, and you can get drinks if you like, but the food is actually very good. They do lots of film and theatre there, and occasionally open the doors to live music. Seating is limited, the club requires a reservation, and the music and video shows don’t begin until everybody is in the live room. It’s an experience. I’ll send out another announcement in a few weeks, but if you’re sufficiently intrigued and you’d like to reserve a seat,
you can do so through the Monkeytown site. You don’t have to pay anything to make a reservation – you just give your name.

Here are the particulars, in wallet-sized cut-out format:

Hey everyone,I've been taking this month off of comedy stuff to focus on scraping a living together off of my shitty freelance writing jobs. But in September, BlackHole will start up again on the 26th, BabyHole will premier on the 4th, and Sweet Face, Sour Puss will happen at least once. Also, my Kitten Recipe Poster will be done. And maybe some other posters of me being sexy. If you want one, it would make me happy if you could put an order in now.About BabyHole:BabyHole Open Mic is going to be the best open mic in Jersey City and it's for everything BUT poetry.And I'm booking the featured musicians and comedians now. So if you want to be a featured musician or comedian, let me know, and tell your friends.It's going to be on Tuesday nights at Toy Eater's Studio.It will start off with the featured music act, and end with the featured comedy act, with about an hour in between of open mic slots.I love you,Melissa Surach
