Hey, remember when back in the halcyon days of 2013 when that couple first broke the “million-dollars for a Bed-Stuy apartment” barrier, and we all thought “Ha ha, what a couple of doofuses”? Well, it looks like we’re the doofuses for thinking this wouldn’t keep happening, because as per Brownstoner, hey, here’s some more million dollar Bed-Stuy condos. And good golly they are bland.

After the rousing success of last year’s Smallest Penis in Brooklyn Pageant, it was almost guaranteed there would be a sequel. After all, summer blockbuster rules require it. Lo and behold, the sequel took place on Saturday at Bushwick’s Kings County Bar, and fortunately for the packed to capacity crowd, the ballsy contestants delivered another memorable evening of performances. Confidence was key as always for these men with pint-size peckers and Peter North-sized hearts, but there could only be one winner. This year, it was a contestant named Rajkumar, who wowed the crowd with his sensitivity and Bollywood dance skills.  (more…)

bushwick open studios 2014

Pretty much says summer, doesn’t it? All photos by Joseph Talman

After a long, brutal winter, people in the art world have been looking forward to Bushwick Open Studios more than ever. Finally, from May 30 to June 1, artists and art  collectives threw open their doors for shows and a celebration of the neighborhood’s art. For people who make the trek out to Bushwick, BOS is not just merely art, it’s an experience, but it’s also special for those of us who live here, the creatives and art-lovers alike.

The following photos document only a very small portion the weekend’s endless art party, one I am happy to call one of the most amazing weekends I have ever had in Brooklyn.

tromadance

This is right before it gets weird.

Hey guys, we know we wrote about it a little while ago, but remember how TromaDance is coming to Bushwick on June 27 and 28? You know, the free all-day film festival celebrating independent movie making that any schlub can go to, because it’s free? They recently announced that comedy troupe Murderfist will be performing live, and to celebrate the occasion, Murderfist made some TromaDance promo videos. They’re NSFW-ish, so they’re after the jump, but if you can get away with watching a 30-second video that features ass tits, you should definitely watch them. Come on, it’s Friday! (more…)

smallest penis in brooklyn

The two anonymous hotties who’ll hang with the owner of BK’s favorite pint-sized pecker.

If you remember last year’s coverage of the Smallest Penis in Brooklyn Pageant, you’ll remember that one of the Sex Kittens on hand was so taken with the winner of the contest that she gave him an unplanned smooch after he was crowned King of the Tiny Penises. How will organizers top that this year when the Smallest Penis in Brooklyn contest returns to Kings County on June 14? Two sisters have just volunteered to go on an all-expenses-paid date in Bushwick with the winner of the contest. Who needs Tinder when you can find love, or at least lust, like this? (more…)

If you’ve been sitting shiva since we broke the news that Tiki Disco wasn’t going to be returning to Roberta’s this summer, you can put away the chopped liver and the pastries, because the insane summer party has announced a new home. Also, come on, why were you doing that, we said that a new host was probably going to appear. Anyway, the good news is that Tiki Disco season will start on Sunday, June 1 at The Well (272 Meserole Street). The only thing is, it costs $10 this time. (more…)

Robert Cornegy: A friend to mothers. via Facebook

Just call him the anti-Hot Bird.

While the Clinton Hill bar got some press this week for telling parents to pack up their kids and leave, Bed-Stuy City Councilman Robert Cornegy is making waves in the parenting world with the opposite tack. He’s opened Brooklyn’s first “community lactation station,” for mother who are out and about and need to pop in to feed their kids. Expect him to really milk this one when he’s up for re-election.

robot party

Horrible robot baby sitters will even take care of our children one day.

Since an early age, you probably couldn’t imagine the future without robots thanks to the robots that proliferate in pop culture and blockbuster movies, from Battlestar Galactica to Terminator to The Matrix. Now that we’re nearing the future, there’s more and more robots around us, taking control of us. You may have become part robot yourself, with your iPhone in one hand and tablet in the other, Google Glass on your face, your mind in the Cloud, and even the hand used to mix your drink will soon be robot hand… To prevent your electronic body part extensions from running out of juice, meet others of your kind at the 100% Robot Party at Silent Barn, (603 Bushwick Ave), tomorrow night.

The summer this won’t happen. Photo by Kenny Rodriguez via Facebook

We’re all rightfully excited about the summer, and the rebirth of outdoor fun in the city for a few months. Sadly, there’ll be one summer tradition that’s hanging up its viking helmet and beer bong, as after five years, Tiki Disco won’t be returning to the Roberta’s garden. It leaves an enormous speaker-sized hole in our hearts, but the summer must go on. (more…)
