Feed the feminists

Anyone who knows me knows I am a kickin’ ass and takin’ names, spear chuckin’, hairy legged, lesbian feminist takin’ a sledgehammer to the bullshit patriarchal paradigm, every single day, yo. Ok, well, not so much the hairy legged thing though I’m not as diligent a leg shaver as I want to be, I do […]

Repost of the guest post: Yosemite

I had to take this post down a few days ago because I was getting a ton of pings off it from China. Like, totally a lot. Everyday there were hundreds of hits on this post. It was really annoying. So, I’m posting it again. Unfortunately the comments didn’t save but the general consensus was […]

The Big Duck of Long Island

Our little dock on the Sound was near the ferry to Long Island. I had a particular roadside attraction on my list for this trip but it all depended on how we felt about making a day of going over to Long Island. The decision was made. The day was sunny and crisp. So, let’s […]

The tooth and more

Within walking distance of the Renoir dancers and Mariachis sits the tooth. It’s a big tooth. It resembles an undiscovered dinosaur, a Molarsaurus, but it’s a tooth. Why a tooth? Well, why not a tooth? I mean, why not Jello? Or an athletic cup? Or a crescent wrench? Because it’s a tooth. It just is. […]

Hamilton NJ, sculpture capital of the world

I don’t know if Hamilton Township in NJ is the sculpture capital of the world, but it’s probably pretty dang close. I didn’t even know about Hamilton’s Grounds for Sculpture. I didn’t even know Hamilton, NJ existed. So, it was quite a wonderful, little surprise to see these sculptures as we drove to the NJ […]

The queen shops

Finished at our first stop on the Grand Whoosh Tour of NYC, we headed to lunch and to Pearl River Market back in Manhattan on Broadway. Before shopping, we needed to eat. Originally, I had planned to check out Mario Batali’s new gastro pub, The Spotted Pig. But, the duchess is a vegetarian. Oopsie. We […]

The Dinner Party

A few months before the Epic East Coast Duckapalooza Trip, I was reading up on Ana Mendieta, a Cuban American artist who worked mainly with natural material – dirt, grass, sticks, mud – to depict various ideas about life and death with an undercurrent of feminism. This led me to other feminist artists of the […]

Brooklyn Museum

On our second day with the duchess, we took the train into New York City for some museum hopping and lunching. Here is what we had planned (ok… it’s what I planned, I’m a planner, it’s what I do). The plan was to go to the Guggenheim, then to MOMA, then lunch, then shopping at […]
