Reuben Rocks Out; MOMA Makes Us SAFE

A week ago, Hashbrown moseyed out to the Lower East Side to listen to an evening of queer rockers sound off, and was blown away by studly Reuben Butchart. His voice is splendid, and his sense of humor will send you snickering. You all have a second chance to hear this talented young man this WEDNESDAY, November 16th when he performs at the Gay and Lesbian Center as part of a benefit for Mark Robert Jackson's "Night Falls Fast." Tickets are $10 at the door and it's worth every dime.

This weekend, while squiring around friends from DC, we had the opportunity to check out the new MOMA for the first time. Can. We. Just. Say. Wow.

Run don't walk to New York to check this one out it truly an incredible sight to behold. And the collection is predicatably stunning, although Hashbrown was a bit dsappointed by suprisingly lacklustre photography.

On special exhibition is SAFE, the first major exhibition since MOMA's reopening. SAFE presents a collection of more than 300 products designed to protect the mind and body from dangerous and stressful circumstances.

Interestingly, a handy little circular given to people at the exhibit shockingly let's you know that you are more likely to die by legal execution than being bitten by poisonous spider. In fact, execution falls around the middle of the list. Thank you Texas.

SAFE is sponsored by BNP Paribas, the French bank. Hashbrown hopes they are keeping themselves safe and sound in these trying times.
