We're back from Alaska and have exploited our greatest natural
resources for you in East Village Inky #36!
It's all stapled and stuffed and waiting for me to through some flaming
hoops to print your mailing labels out on a printer that actually,
unlike my own, works.
What I'm saying is, this'd be a grand time to tell me if you've moved,
so I can update your as-yet-unprinted label while it's still invisible.
Lay some gift subscriptions on your friends!
Do some yogic eye exercises so you won't bleed tears when you try to
focus on some of our tiniest asides ever!
Did the mention of gift subscriptions finish what the day after
Don't sweat it. The holidays are sweeter than an elf-flavored
Marshmallow Peep when you get all your spending done at:
BUST Magazine�s 2007 Holiday Craftacular
Saturday, December 8, from 10 AM � 8 PM
at the Metropolitan Pavilion
125 West 18th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenue)
Inky will be holding down a table stocked with books, zines, t-shirts,
gift subscription notices and who knows what. I will be sitting in a
nearby folding chair, eating kielbasa, drinking beer, and wishing I
could knit as good as the other vendors. If your lust for handmade
gifts is at odds with your schedule and/or abilities, come on down and
get you some the sane, non-crazy-making way!
Looks like Powell's Books eyes was bigger than its stomach.
They're having a run on Dirty Sugar Cookies!

Visiting NYC over the holidays?
Of course you are! You've just booked your flight to the Craftacular.
That's why we're dusting off The East Village Inky' Offbeat Online
Guide to NYC.
Webmaster Dave's in a vegan candy-corn-induced coma, I mean, a
guidebook-updating-frenzy, trying to get this turkey live by
Thanksgiving. I'll give a gentle yawp when the updates have been
posted, but please do stay tuned...
Speaking of New York, Broadway is dead!
Off-Off-Broadway, however, will be pumping with new theatrical life
when Inky, and possibly Milo make their father-penned debut in Bad
Christmas, a 10-minute play Greg has written for the Monday Night
Little Theater at Dixon Place series, curated by Jeffrey Jones.
You know what else?
I'm in it too.
I better start learning my lines, like it isn't some casual thing
where it's okay to forget your lines, and mill around stage with a
script in your hand because you never knew em to begin with, and...
say, about Milo, the thing is, mock-violence tends to over stimulate
him in such a way that he goes off-script in order to punch people in
the balls. So Milo may be played by a stunt Milo, or he may be replaced
midway through the performance by a stunt Milo waiting in the wings, or
it may be Inky's big chance to say his lines as well as hers while the
playwright gives him a Time Out on the Bowery!
In any event, mark your calendar for this train wreck and don't forget
to get a babysitter because this sort of filth is NOT for children,
especially the ones who aren't accustomed to the disturbing mental
acrobatics of Greg Kotis.
Monday, November 26
8 pm - 9:30
Little Theater at Dixon Place ... now with upholstered seating!
258 Bowery, 2nd floor
Finally, anybody got some good Austin Texas recommendations to lay on
me before Friday? My friend Karen (you know, the one who gets the kids
if Greg and I go down in a plane together) are putting ourselves on
some post-R&R R&R next week. I think I'll need it even more by the time
this printer hell is resolved.
