OYG visits the Royal Palms

This past Sunday the OYG team decided to spend some good times playing shuffleboard at the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in our neighbor neighborhood the Gowanus area. The place is beautiful! Everything felt like a Wes Anderson movie down to font choice and the live band.

Check out this beautiful bathroom wall situation:

Here is a little breakdown of how to play: Get it inside the lines in order to score. If it all touches a line, nada points! the widest and farthest box is -1o. Watch out!

Here are our VICTORIES!

Tammy the Hammer!

Matto Dynomito!

Mary the Piledriver!

Connie the Con Artist!

Here is a good re-enactment!

all in all a great night!!

Happy 2014!

Happy new year from OrangeYouGlad! We hope your first Monday of the new year went well, and that you’re easily remembering to write those 4s instead of 3s.

To celebrate our existence in this futuristic period, and also our survival of blizzard Hercules, here are some Improbable Snowmen created by our very own Matt Shoch.

Tammy’s Misorder at Caputo’s

Tammy AKA DA BOSS AKA DJ REGGAEBABYTOONZ was really nice and went to buy me a sandwich from our favorite sandwich shop, Caputo’s. She and I really like this one sandwich that has bruschetta, mozzarella, asparagas and balsamic vinegar on the amazing bread. Mmmmmmm. Tammy came back and mentioned that she accidentally ordered the “large” instead of medium sized ciabatta. I didn’t know they had large ciabattas…

Well, they don’t. I mean they do but this “large” sandwich was 22 dollars and the size of a baby. It’s impossible to express just how big it was, how big it felt. Here is a full sized bag of chips to compare it to.

HUGE! That’s not your 50 cent bag of bodega chips here, we’re talking big mama 3+ dollar size chips. This was a sandwich to feed an army. This was a sandwich to feed the your tired, your poor, your hungry masses yearning to eat. It’s a sandwich full of hope and wonder.

This was a sandwich that was actually the size of three full sandwiches. 22 bucks split three ways isn’t actually that bad! We saved some money!

Understand though that these thoughts of savings all came later. In that moment of unveiling, we were in complete shock!

We could not and probably can not still to some degree, handle this sandwich.

Look! It even had these things that I have never seen before!

Italian Sweety Drop Peppers. Whaaaat? Did you know these things are real?

After the shock dissipated and the calm came but was quickly smothered by raging hunger, we dove into the sandwich, mouth first.

DIY Infinity Room

Yoyoi Kusama’s Infinity Rooms are currently on display at the David Zwirner gallery in New York City. Last weekend I waited 4 hours in line to experience I Who Have Arrived In Heaven, which was totally worth it.

But, if you don’t have a lot of time for lines, you might consider making your own Infinity Room at home.

What You’ll Need

1. 2+ mirrors

2. Small lights (string lights, candles, or a Hypnocube will work)

Steps

1. Arrange mirrors facing toward each other.

2. Assemble lights in the middle of your mirror setup.

3. Blammo! Infinity room achieved.

4. Take close-up pictures to make it look like it’s bigger than it actually is.

And of the setup:

OrangeYouGlad spotted in New Balance video

A few weeks ago some friendly fellows from New Balance used our colorful gate to shoot their new Brooklyn sneakers against. Here is the video they made! And here is the fragment of a second that shows our gates that I so effortlessly managed to capture, thanks to my expert pausing technique.

MAD ninja video pausing skills.

They also sent us some sneakers, which was super nice. Thanks guys!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

OMG, OYG IS OFF THE HOOK! Celebrate good times come on. (click the image to see it BIG)

We loved working on this year’s halloween promo so much that we plan on expanding the world of Yuck City. Expect to see some more stupid cute monsters and maybe their adventures!

 

01 Stoppafriska

The party must be going great, because there is a cop out front! Wait, that’s no cop! It’s Stoppafriska! But he’s cool because he’s just here to dance.

We have unearthed some monsters who hail from Yuck City! Join us as we count down the 13 unlucky days ‘til Halloween and meet these dreadful beings that have been lurking unseen… UNTIL NOW!

Tomorrow is Halloween!!!
