Ending a blog (maybe)
I started this blog (BROOKLYN CULTURE JAM) back in 2012. I did it after HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE, a solo play I’d done for Occupy Wall Street ended up on YouTube and I started getting hundreds of Friend requests on Facebook. I figured this was a good place to publicize my plays and also […]
Back from the Fringe!!
I did my funny little play about revolution and empire in Tampa last week at the Tampa International Fringe Festival. A total of six performances at the Silver Meteor Gallery of Ybor City, a fun little space that’s right beside the Amtrak tracks for the Silver Meteor. I was interrupted twice by trains. I also tried […]
Support the Arts today!!
The Trumpsters are coming after all funding for the arts. According to the National Endowment for the Arts, (NEA) we spent $146 M of federal money for galleries, music, dance and theater last year. That’s less than what we’re currently spending to purchase a single, semi-airworthy F35. According to the NEA’s funding history, that’s less than […]

Live-feed from ‘How To Stop the Empire’
This being the first day of the Trump presidency, it seemed as auspicious a time as any to premiere my latest iteration of my one-man play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB–THE PRESIDENT TRUMP EDITION. I was unable to book a gig today, January 20th, because, well, I have a sort […]
Trump’s inauguration day–Live event?
Here’s the deal. I KNOW this is a historic Inauguration in two weeks. However, I’m wrasslin’ with that debbil unemployment, and I will not be heading to DC on January 20th for the purpose of making fun of Der Drumpf’s coronation. However, I have rewritten my play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR […]
HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE –the Trump era reboot
We are now in the Trump era. Even if the folks attempting to tip over Trump by begging electors to vote against the state totals, we will never be able as a nation to escape what has been wrought on us by this election. And I suspect all attempts to reboot the election will fail. […]
How to Stop the Empire in your living room!
I spent my Saturday performing in Zuccotti Park/Liberty Square, the place where OWS started some five years ago. The newest version of HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB kicked off around 1 PM and I had a decent crowd of people there to listen. I brought new material in on the […]
Did we already collapse?
A couple of days ago, I posted about the convergence of economic bellwethers that pointed to economic collapse in the near future.I have more detail on the unemployment situation. Two of my go-to sources have indicated that the BLS report on employment last month are ‘problematic’. As you may be aware, the ‘headline’ unemployment figure […]
‘How to Stop the Empire’ plays Zuccotti
REMINDER: I’ve been invited to perform this play at the fifth anniversary of the occupation of Zuccotti Park by Occupy Wall Street. The date is September 17 (a Saturday). Unless we have another Hurricane Sandy hit, I’ll be out there. The play is being rewritten somewhat to reflect the clusterf**k that passes for Election […]
