The Beast Within Halloween 2007

Last Wednesday I took a train down to NYC to see The Beast Within art show

I arrived in NYC at 4pm, meet up with Buske and we headed over to the show, mingled for a bit, meet up with Pushead and he gave me…

…a laser etched balsawood invite to the show, limited to 100, this thing is insane.
Gotta figure the best way to display this gem.

Got to hang with Buske, Matt and Danielle, Mo, Missy and Skylar (fellow Skullbrainers) and Pushead, which makes for a great Halloween. Headed back to Penn station at about 1:30am for my 3:50am train back to Boston. I can’t even begin to describe the horror that Penn Station is post midnight after halloween, a graveyard of ne’er-do-wells in varying degrees of intoxication cloaked in various costumes, sleeping against poles or collapsed on the floor…

In other Pushead news, Gray sent this over-

“Californian photographer Glen E. Friedman used to send Brian Schroeder, an artist in the ’80s hardcore scene, records Schroeder couldn’t find at home in Idaho. As thanks, Schroeder sent mix tapes such as this one. Enlarge to see the full song list.”
