All eyes were on New York last week as the fashion shows kicked into high gear. Who? Why? What? How? Cow? Wow?
Nobody knows, and that's the way it should stay. DAB was there(uninvited) drinking the bubbly and indulging in all that leather gossip. Thanks for the memories, I will soon forget about it all. You know who you are! Lincoln Center never looked so black and blue. I tripped on the stairs, fell into the fountain, got chased by a guard, then miraculously recovered my poise and grace only to have my top hat stolen by some dandy in a pink suit. Hey, those are the streets for ya! Remember to always bring a
whip. That's the way I like it. Fountain rules! Hey, where's my hat?

Spot Painting Spotted!

                        DAB NEWS is reporting that another Hirst spot
                        painting has been vandalized at a well-known 
                        gallery in Chelsea. Details are still sketchy, but
                        the assailant, a middle-aged skinny tall man  
                                with a mustache and glasses, walked into the
                        24th Street gallery at around 2:00 p.m. last Thursday
                        and demanded that the lights be turned off. After
                        the staff declined numerous times, he apparently 
                        screamed something out about it being the end of the
                        world, then pulled out a paintbrush of some
                        kind and painted the word BAD on the spot
                        painting. After a brief scuffle with the gallery         
                        guards, the man dashed out, lit a cigar and was last                          seen skipping south on the Westside Highway. Police
                        are still searching for a motive, and an investigation
                        is ongoing into the meaning of BAD. The bandit is
                        still at large. Police are advising the public to be 
                        calm and alert, and to report any person smoking 
                        a cigar who resembles Groucho Marx. If you have 
                        any information about this high crime please call  
                        Crime Steppers at 1-800-BAD-TIPS.

Twilight of the Gods!

The Rope of destiny is set at the Met! There is a new Siegfried in town! Only a couple of people can sing this role, and Jay Hunter Morris is one of them. The kid from Texas can do that drama too! Hilde is roped and laced with his Cowboy love potion. Grande Dame Deborah Voigt is a delight of gravity and grace. Director Lepage has made a heavy machine look light and natural.  Old Grand Drama on a grand scale! Opera like this will never go out of style. Remember to wear your cowboy boots! See it or hear it NOW! Even Wagner would be delighted with this new horse. Giddy Up!!!
