MUDDGUTS – 41 MONTROSE AVE, BROOKLYN, NYC.
DEATH, DEATH, and more DEATH !!!
that’s what I mean by . . ghost army.
the unknown thread that floats a blog, where you realize you forgot to post a photo of some guys you really like at the CINDERS OPENING, DEATH BY AUDIO, and it’s all quite innocent, and then – the DEATH HITS . . just keep on coming.
radar or what ? it’s a train ride to blogger heaven. when everybody is picking up – on the same beat.
riding that same train, destination: NYC grit.
blogging 101 – you gotta have that ghost army, watching your back !!
hacked to death in the desert.
hacked to death on the web. cyber bullied, cyber conned, cyber crushed.
shot up by 9 year old girls in bubble gum pink shorts wielding UZI’s at . . BURGERS & BULLETS !!
hey, death by bowling ball – sounds right on to me.
that hardcore NYC grin, says: back in your face.
I mean NASA just passed PLUTO on the way to JUPITER . . whazz up ??
KATIE PERRY & RIFF RAFF at the EMMYS !! loved it.
while TISSELTOWN mentality has gone global, it’s all about who’s got the most gruesome photo op up for 5 mins. of shock on the news waves, and just who does control the global media ? the original TISSELTOWN, HOLLYWOOD USA . . is just rockin !!
which gets us right back to . . BOWLING BALL FUNERAL SHIRTS & JOHAN KUGELBERG !!
Muddguts put out a super great press release, a lengthy statement by Johan Kugelberg that starts:
“For some reason, I started buying funeral home bowling shirts on Ebay around 15 years ago”, and goes on, with great verve.
damn, and I thought I was mouthy, but hey . . there’s a lot to to say !!
so, then he waxes quite poetically and authoritatively . . for several paragraphs.
and, apparently there is a lot to say, esp about collecting, searching, finding, wearing, styles that ebb and flow, ebay, vintage bowling shirts, vintage Brooklyn, the game of bowling, the game of life and death, and . . the funeral homes that care of the messy residue.
I took note of this paragraph in particular:
“DEATH is obviously ultimately beautiful as life is beautiful, but the ugly aspects of the biz of death and dying is taken care of by professionals who need to go bowling once in a while. Father Time. Mother Death, Brother Ebay, Sister Bowling… All members of our spiritual family.”
in particular dug that: ‘obviously’ in the start-up !!
now if that doesn’t get you to thinking, what will ?!!
the PR text isn’t on the gallery bare-bones, but has great guts & raw graphics (3 cheers !!) website – thinking maybe . . they will have a hand-out at the venue ?
but you can, get yourself an abridged version !!
because turns out with just a little bit of easy-rider slacker web stalking, JOHAN KUGELBERG is the founder & head honcho behind . . BOO-HOORAY !! – the downtown gallery/think tank/archive venue, founded 2010 that has slowly been gathering momentum & buzz – and they’ve got a somewhat sleeker PR exhibit mission statement online, plus some very GREAT IMAGES / VINTAGE BOWLING SHIRTS with great signage bye the way . . & GREAT, POP-UP NEW AGE, SLIGHTLY DISTRESSED . . GRAPHICS !!

plus, seriously . .
Boo-Hooray, it’s just one great ‘visuals’ & real ‘info’ website – so sit back and cruise, it’s like a big ole stamp collection to the max, played out for easy browsing – for all ya artist & designer . . soul bothers and soul sisters.
most def, check out: BOO-HOORAY
