~DUKE RILEY . . BIG – PIG ROAST TODAY !!
ROAST THAT . . . PIG !!
BURNING MAN – NEW YORK CITY . . . STYLE !!
FREIZE, not !!
damn, if DUSTIN YELLIN was going to have himself a big down-home pig roast A-list fund raiser, sure as hell, DUKE RILEY – was going to have one . . his way !!
a hardcore, bad-ass throw-down, full of the underbelly grit that defines the rough and tumble underground, and Duke Riley – who will always be subversive, no matter how successful he gets.
yeah, let’s get in your face . . CUBA !!
yeah, underground, maybe $10 to get it, just the way we like it.
you know . . . under the volcano !!
no diss on Dustin, it’s just how you land, from a socio-economic point of view, and in his own sweet chaotic way, Dustin is a pretty free-form hardcore creative.
‘Tree-Tech’ industries at Spring Break . . . nailed his street cred, forever.
it’s called putting your money – where your mouth is.
I mean . .
you could make a meme, and I would if I had the computer skills, lordy !!
and, put Dustin’s grinning, red-speckled blue-eyed with wildly tousled head, on Peter Dinklage’s ‘Throne of Games’ bad boy scruffy hard-body mini-body, and come out – with something really really . . voila !! to crash the social media universe.
. . . for real !!
just close your eyes and . . imagine !!
so, if Dustin was looking to raise $800,000 for his Pioneer Works agenda, and diffuse it out into the greater Red Hook community, Duke is looking to raise $8,000 to send him, and some fellow hardcore bad-ass wild band-mates . . . to CUBA !
now, that’s w-i-l-d.
so the way I see it, this is no longer just a ‘GIRLS’ night out – in Brooklyn moment – !!
this is: ‘GAME of THRONES’ meets . .’MAD MAX’ !!
and yeah, it is YOUR PASSPORT . . “FUCKING BEAUTIFUL” – !!
YEAH, DUKE’S PIG ROAST, for sure is bound to be the closest you’re gonna get, yah dumb-loser-on-the-make, or twenty-something-on-the-go, to . . BURNING MAN, in this damn city. ha.
for a gripping, and ripping your heart out time, and don’t forget those over-size torn black net stockings, in over-drive diva size, for sure.
SO, BURN THAT – PIG !!
and stuff an apple in it’s mouth, as it turns and drips.
so, yeah . .
let’s send DUKE and his friggin hardcore pals – to CUBA, and like they say – good luck with that.
or as DUKE PUTS IT:
“If you are a friend of mine or TBone’s, a Hellbent Hooker fan or just a generally bad person, and want to bring more problems to Cuba that it’s already dealing with, SHOW UP! Donate. Eat Pork. Drink Booze.
See you there.”

and finally, formore ‘academic’ background on DUKE’S . . BIG CUBA – PLANS,
see: BRIAN BOUCHER’S/THURS MAY 7, 2015 POST – ON ARTNET
CUBA has played into the Duke’s love of the sea, folk art tradition, and just plain-ole game of . . trouble-making, before.
anybody else remember, his last gallery showing, when he sent that ‘illegal’ band of pigeons, from Florida to Cuba, to smuggle back hand-rolled cigars !! in mini-bird backpacks – with mini-cams on their bodies . . catching the whole thing – mid-flight, over the waters !!
dude if you saw it, you well remember – !!
then scandal of scandals, after reportedly selling their home-made pigeon coop, for big bucks, we are talking like $$,$$$ to some smart ass European collector, he actually ABANDONED his fleet of feisty flyers – and dumped them, on who else. 5 guesses !!
yep, PAT. aka the Bushwick pigeonner.
PATRICK McCARTHY – he of the recent ceramic ‘SLAB’ show at AGNES B.
between . . the likes of DUKE RILEY, KING PIN DUSTIN YELLIN, and HIGH LORD TOM SACHS, and with new-up-and-comer, elder royal son, or is that scheming bastard ? falconer, I mean pigeoner !!! PAT McCARTHY.
not to forget young downtown prince SEAN VEGEZZI, the undisputed master of urban sleight-of-hand, despite his tender years, or maybe – because of them ?
joining the fray, it really is an epic GAME OF THRONES battle for domination, here in – NEW YORK CITY.
famous last words:
who wants to live in a drought-scarred desert, when you can be jostling for power among such urban heroes.
on an islandsurrounded by . . water.
LA is a realtors’ . . shell game.
or is that . . shill game ?
the northeast kingdom – sure feels a whole lot lighter, swifter, slicker, and faster on its feet – with all those lame wannabe transplants – gone.
throw ’em overboard, I say – !!
throw the deadweight – off the ship.
long live NEW YORK !!
let the battles – begin.
ok ok I know, ED RUSCHA, and RETNA !!
ok, so in Ruscha’s case, just make him an honorary New Yorker, and he’s already more than half-way here on our side, as is.
as for RETNA ?
somebody has to kidnap him, and throw him into the boat, all tied-up no doubt, and screamin’ bloody murder, to save him from himself and all those gross $$$ whore groupies they have down there.
and, watch out for the not-all-that-glitters-is-not – gold . . stars overhead in the cosmic firmament, like ?
VENUS, and MAMA, baby !!
way funny last word:
and, east vs west coast art warriors, definite remember the sad, cautionary tale of JEFFREY DEITCH.
they really really don’t like Northern intruders down there, upsetting the locals, and ruining their dinner parties. they sure gave him the boot, in no time.
and, ok he has no social skills, but he – can put on a good show, when he wants to.
just if only he wasn’t so sleazy, and such a rip-off to his . . local sources.
you knew the writing was on the wall, early in the game, when they made him take down that awesome wall mural of soldiers’ coffins.
coffins – ha, let that be . . the last word !!
