so . . . forget the GREENBERG – CHELSEA HOTEL OPEN SALON bit – wrong information.
DAVID GREENBERG – is having an event – but he will just be in and out over the fair weekend.
he is having a 40TH BIRTHDAY – TUESDAY MARCH 8th – at 8 PM – BUT THAT’S ABOUT IT . . . so, see ya at JACK EARLY’S !!
in the meantime, let your finger’s do the walking: poetdavidgreenberg.blogspot.com/
and where just a little lower down, you can find this self portrait – DAVID GREENBERG – of today – in a snowstorm – photo by DAVID SISKOVIC- in an entry dated DEC 31, 2010 – titled: ‘SKI LOW SON’ – which begins:
“I wish I was a little bit blacker
and a little less wacker
I wish I had a bro
with a nose
for my steez
I could sleep near . . . ” – amen.
and yes. its true, JOSH HARRIS named his new cat, a rejected found cat straight off Craigslist – for him.
cause Greenberg the poet – is so hardcore. get it ? Greenberg . . . the cat.
see: GREENBERG the cat/Where in the World is Josh Harris, Now ?
scroll down & voila – Greenberg the cat. who turned out to be – pretty cool. after all.
Greenberg the cool cat – all around.
am esp. very respectful of his ties to PATTI SMITH – to whose book –‘STRANGE MESSENGER – THE WORK Of PATTI SMITH’ – he contributed an essay.
and of which book, CAMILLE PAGLIA wrote:
[this book about Patti Smith’s artwork, approx. 60 pieces from over 30 years] . . . “collects early pieces as well as new ones inspired by the September 11, 2001 bombing of the World Trade Center in which Smith expresses her views about violence, religion, war and intolerance” . . . “she is mad saint, dandy and troubadour, a complex woman alone and outward bound for cultural war.”
by the way – PATTI SMITH’S ROCK ANTHEM – ‘BECAUSE THE NIGHT BELONGS TO US’ – is finally getting some real air play – on the mainstream radio waves. can you believe that. better late, than never. popular culture finally caught up to Patti Smith. or is it the times we live in – I dunno but, everybody’s digging her vibe – all of a sudden.
her and LOU REED – !! – amen.
