Something's up @ArtistsSpace.
38 Greene Street NYC Occupied. General Assembly At Noon 10.23.11
But is it really happening? And does it have anything to do with #OWS?

Steve, it's a fucking disaster. Columbia grad, internationally exhibited performance artist, Georgi Sagri interrupted someone's lecture yesterday by passing out a pretty weak "Take Artists Space" poem, and then invited kids who had no idea what Artists Space was to occupy the spae. Has nothing to do with #OWS - it's like "Occupy a Friendly Non Profit Gallery". What artist doesn't want to do that?

#OccupyTheBoardroom: The Yes Lab suggests you become BFFs with a banker

October 17, 2011. An email arrived today from the Yes Lab suggesting we should all reach out and become BFFs "with the 1% who wrecked the economy and left us with the bill." I pass it on for your consideration.

Dear Friend,

You’re on the Yes Men mailing list, which means you’ve probably seen some of our corporate crime-fighting mischief. Now it’s time to spring into action yourself — by becoming Best Friends Forever (BFFs) with the 1% who have wrecked the economy and left us with the bill.

Visit to find hundreds of available 1%ers today; then figure out how to reach them.
