COMING SOON! IN THE CORPSE! FROM HARIETTE SUROVELL! FROM NEW YORK! CONSTIPATED COLETTE: THE NEED FOR A FLUSH!

Read the notice below, direct from Hariette:
I've been out-of-town since 7/10, but I'm back in Gentrificationland. Been here lately? The hood of funky dives, cool cafes and George-Therese Dickenson's crib (did I tell you that my landlord reports that she permanently joined a nudist's colony?) now looks like Lex in the 40's or anywhere on the Upper East Side. Sky-scrapery buildings and bourgeois restaurants, all are meant to cater to NYU trustfunders and H-wood celebs in their stretch limos. Will they re-name "The Bowery" something like "Cooper Alley"? And where exactly have all the Bowery Bums gone?

DECADENT CELEB BED'S UP FOR AUCTION PDF E-mail
A decadent celebrity bed, charged with a thousand and one nights times ten's nights filled with vibrant sexual action, is being auctioned off on July 4th, 2009.  The auction begins on May 15, 2009. The love-soaked queen-size mattress has seen more than was described in the more than a dozen books about this Don Juan's life. The minimum bid is $15,000, and bidders should be willing to bid without knowing the celebrity's name, who will be revealed only to the winner. A good deal of faith is involved, but the payoff goes beyond the object's value: owners of the bed will experience deep revitalization. If you would like to bid, send your inquiries to: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
