FROM THE HOME PAGE:
FRI OCT 9: . . . yo, BRO, as in BROMIRSKI !! – paws off our secret weapon – hard-partying artlovers man-about-town & big mouth mouthpiece – SIMON CERIGO !!
. . . we hear CERIGO regaled you with stories of the good old days when the Lower East Side – really was the Lower East Side and the art legends rolled, I mean ruled – mighty. ask him to tell ya bout BASQUIAT’S fridge – only pot. pounds of it. too bad he didn’t stick around long enough – to do an MTV – WELCOME TO MY CRIB – spot !!. anyways, CERIGO apparently even touched down with some gleeful reminiscences re: the newly shuttered almost, that’s a-l-m-o-s-t most hated man-about-town – faux dealer to the max – MICHAEL STEINBERG !!
apparently, BROMIRSKI esp loved the bit – where Simon told him that back in the day he and Charlie, as in FINCH !! – artnet secret weapon and grand daddy mentor to all us cutting edge snarks, sharks, whatever !! – used to chuckle that STEINBERG was more interesting for the $400 shirts he wore on his back – than the art on his walls !!
so, OK. heads up – ANABA BRAT – if you really want some dirt – next time – ask SIMON what he and DAVID LETTERMAN have in common ?
hint: it got NANCY thrown out of ‘QUIET’ & left one unnamed no-talent trust fund baby – who was solely known for running around with a huge baggy of free flowing weed, Simon’s fav artworld species – knocked-out cold on the floor with one blow & in the Josh Harris bio ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’ you can see the Nancy imprinted nail marks on her throat up-close – which she had to have plastic surgeoned away. with daddy’s $$. like I said – if you don’t like the heat – stay outta the kitchen !! still not warm ?
the NEW YORK POST got it right today:
“And the No. 1 reason DAVID LETTERMAN is a cad: The ‘LATE SHOW’ host brought his assistant he was sleeping with on Caribbean vacations with his wife and their young son.”
except in Simon’s case – it was his quote unquote “employer gallerist”.
so, you might rightfully ask: why we keep Simon on, at least as a spinmeister – well, he has a few redeeming characteristics. name one ? OMG get this – he shows up at ZIEHER SMITH openings, who we just rated as D.O.A. – DEAD ON ARRIVAL – skanky drug dealer pals in tow – piles on the free beer .. and tells SCOTT: “I’m best friends with CHARLIE FINCH” – which gets him behind the front desk to hear all about Scott’s half million buck renovation – and then – he goes in for the sucker punch – “… but I’m also artlover’s hubby !!”.
at that, Zieher pointed to the extra unopened beer can Simon had stashed in his shirt pocket and told Cerigo – he “was greedy!!” – to which Simon replies, “whadya mean, I’m gonna drink it”??!!
. . . ya, just can’t make this stuff up. at least someone, can laugh in this godforsaken sinkhole of an art scene . . .
regarding Scott and his art world ambitions – funny, how you can have just about everything – and there’s still gonna be that thorn – that street-wise smart-ass – that’s gonna take you down, and ruin your half million $$ party to boot !!
. . . and, truth be told – it is the dirt poor stoner bad boys, and girls !! – who really make & break this town. take a note, ALBERTO !! or, as we like to call him around the office – DJAM !! anyways – Simon’s conclusion to the night’s revelry ? “nobody was there, I mean there were a lot of slackers, but nobody really important”. and the show ? “sort of trendy. some guy. you could see where Zieher Smith was going, but what was his wife wearing ? some purple shirt and these weird boots . . .?” no wonder he’s on our payroll. . .
at least the goggle goonies can’t get me – my name is already at the top of this page. and skank city has-been models aside, not to mention celebrity socialite voice mail hackers – the straighter I am going to lay it down. talk about a rose and a thorn. talk about a stoner Greek and a wise cracking Jew. ruling the scene – and singing a song – all the way down – to landlord tenant eviction court . . ah, the life of the rich and the poor. NYC style 2009.
. . . hey, they were even threatening to take away my internet juice – for lack of 40 bucks !! can you grow it at home, you know, homegrown DIY hi-speed ? somebody tell – Jeffrey D. – those are the kind of ‘Sunday School’ classes – we really want.
