Life on the Lake

I'm really grateful that somehow the Lake Merritt project has happened -- landscaping, new walks, trees, a manhole/tunnel, traffic meridians -- as it's clear that the Oakland city budget is maxxed out, and so many departments and agencies are hurting. Because I'm so thankful, and because I like my neighborhood so much, I'm working on adopting an island. http://www.oaklandpw.com/Page4.aspx?q=adopt+a+spot

I hope they let me do something fun with it as long as I promise not to create an eyesore or hazard I have all kinds of landscaping ideas actually mostly an elephant made out of succulents.

Nothing to See Here: Saturday, August 15th

This is to advise you that nothing is happening here this Saturday, August 15th.

There is no "art" to be seen. There is no "reticent panda preserve" to enjoy. The Gallery is Not Open and You are not at all invited. GO AWAY.

We'll be making waffles, but you can't have them.
Smoothies will be prepared (ask for a boost!) but not for you.

This art is total crap and at $10 - $40 way outta your price range.

The neighborhood (Grand Lake) is dangerous and people are mean. There's no Farmer's Market that you need to go to anyway and if you did the produce is all gross right now. Absolutely nothing is in season.

The place is a shithole and nobody cares.

Carlos Amigos: Welcome to My Evil Thoughts
Now playing at The Sometime Gallery

Carlos was totally uninspired by the turnout for the dinner a few weeks back and hasn't done fuck-all since. I don't know what he does with his time.

Saturday, August 15th
10:00 - 1:00 or I ask you to leave

See the art and sit a spell. Please don't bring anyone because they'll hate it too. Your donations for waffles n' smoothies go to help the Westport Whale Project become a reality.
