Penny Arcade!

According2g.com would like to wish the legendary performer Penny Arcade a very happy birthday. Penny Arcade has done it all!  She’s been a Warhol Factory Superstar, she’s written books and she is probably best known for her show “Bitch!Dyke!Faghag!Whore!,” which has graced stages all over the world, usually causing controversy in each city the show visits. Penny still performs regularly in the New York area, so check her website for news and details of upcoming shows.  I’ve met Penny before and she’s extremely nice.  Happy birthday Penny!

Debbie Harry!!!

To celebrate the book launch of Penny Arcade’s Bad Reputation, the legendary Debbie Harry came out to New York’s Le Poisson Rouge to read a passage from the book. I had a close encounter with her and she was “not feeling” taking a photo with me (hard to imagine, I know), so you’ll have to settle for the above pic and the ones after the jump. It really makes me sad that I was not able to tell her the story of when I was in high-school and my best friend and I had heard “Heart of Glass” on the radio on our way to a thrift store and when we arrived at the store, she found the 45 in the used bin. She was so excited to have spoken it into existence, the 45 fell out of her hand and literally rolled across the store. By the time we retrieved it, the record had cracked and a big chunk of the record was suddenly missing. Somewhere out there, the first verse of “Heart of Glass” is out there in some Good Will store. If you find it, it belongs to my friend.
