Destructo Party [Aug. 14th, 2006|11:32 am]

New York City Will Provide

My friends who run Cinders Gallery went out of town for a wedding. I watched the store for a day.




That night, we went out.

Desctructo Party

We had no plans, but heard of a party. We got there and they were blasting bad technoish music through a giant busted amp. The music sucked but we danced with abandon. Later, we realized it was a 'demolition party.' For awhile now, people in lofts have been getting kicked out. The city doesn't care and the landlords have all the money and power, so the people getting kicked out throw a party and invite everyone to fuck shit up and have one last good time before the place is converted to more overpriced condos for rich people.




















Grindin'

Earlier in the night, we ate Bi Bim Bop. Amy had a packet of Vietnamese instant coffee that she swore by. Ike is a huge coffee head so he popped it like a Pixie Stick. We thought that would be a great product: Sweet Instant Coffee Pixie Sticks. We would call it 'Grind.'

For the rest of the night we imagined 'Grind' taking over the country. We imagined solemn documentaries about the "Grind Scurge of the Late Oughts." Then we kept passing the Grind under the table, pouring a handful and sucking it down. "Do I have any on my teeth?"

I want to do a video about the dangers of Grind. It would show a Grind Lab where I concoct a batch of the stuff in a dirty bathroom. Then we'd see a hidden video of a pretty white girl buying Grind from my local Puerto Rican gangbanger kids. Eventually, Ike would ride up in a pimped out ride, giving the kids a new batch to sell.

Anyway, at about four int he morning, we did 'lines' of 'Grind.' Like I said, we thought it was hilarious.

You suck Grind; you don't snort it.

But Mark and Amy and I decided to snort it. It wasn't bad but later my nose was annoyed.

Never been to an actual "demo party" of that nature, but when they were doing renovations at one of my previous jobs, I took the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run full-tilt through a wall. It was awesome.

-hx, except for the part where I was sneezing sheetrock.

I told him he can't go.
His parents told him there was no need to go back.

You would have LOVED it. I put a computer monitor through a wall, destroyed a dresser, and slung the seat of a chair like a frisbee (if it didn't stick in the wall, it would leave a massive gash).

It got a little out of control, tho'.

i've been to eviction parties, when there is no chance to get any money back from the landlord so you just fuck the place up. i didn't know it was an actual "thing" though, this demo party buisness. i'm not under a lease in my current apartment, nor do i have a security deposit, maybe i could throw one risk free when i finally move out of here... :)

It's only a thing here because there are so many asshole landlords who use artists to make their place nice and then kick them out. We always win at the lower courts, but since the higher courts are not appointed by the public, we ultimately lose, and the rich people (who buy off the higher courts) always win.

Fuck it. It's our only way of fighting for now - extreme hedonism.

Little Red Riding Hood!

Yeah, you flipped me off in "Saint Mode"! You're surely going to Hell now.

What are you and Teresa doing this weekend? I wanted to get out of town, but that's not going to happen.
