Spotting a piece of garbage in the woods during a walk with his young daughter sparked the inspiration for Jeff Kirshner’s project, @litterati.
"Seeing my daughter’s perplexed expression reminded me of when I was a kid at summer camp," explains Jeff. "Before our parents came to visit, our director made us each pick up five pieces of trash. So I thought, why not apply that same crowdsource cleaning model to the entire planet?"
Litterati introduces a social element to cleaning up garbage. The steps are simple:
Don Giovanni Records is putting on a showcase at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn this weekend and has a pretty diverse lineup. On Friday, New York songstress Laura Stevenson will be headlining. And on Saturday, New Jersey hardcore band, Stormshadow, will be reuniting. I would like to attend both because I am a man of eclectic tastes, goddammit. Conveniently, I notice that there is a 2-day pass for only $20. I would like to purchase said pass.
There doesn’t seem to an option to purchase both, so I click one of the ticket buttons.
Just one ticket please, I am a lone wolf (i.e. loser). Weird, there’s no option to buy both tickets. No worries, I guess I’ll just add one to my cart and then add the other one…
Ah, one of those verification things. Wait, but this one is confusing. Do you want me to solve it or just type the words? I didn’t come here to solve brainteasers so I type “spell this backwards: rorrim”…
Fuck You Ticketmaster/Livenation. Why you gotta be so fucking complicated and make it hard to see fucking bands. You have the most blegh-looking people at the box office, your website sucks my ass and I swear if you try to stick an $18.00 subscription to Entertainment Weekly plus the $200.00 I’ve spent on tickets I will unlike you from Facebook.
