Suzannah B. Troy YouTube of Josh Rechnitz Referred to in The New York Times Yesterday!

The Mysterious Mr. Rechnitz by David Goodman

That strategy has not always worked in his favor. News media outlets looking for a photograph of Mr. Rechnitz after the announcement resorted to one of the only pictures they could find: an image of Mr. Rechnitz, hair sticking out from under a knitted cap, taken from a 2009 video interview.
Mr. Rechnitz had tried to get the video taken down before and after the announcement, said Suzannah B. Troy, 50, an artist who shot the clip and posted it on YouTube. “I’d appreciate it if you would please take that video down,” he wrote to her in July in an e-mail, which she provided to The New York Times. “It’s a pretty unflattering shot the media grabbed from the video.”
She refused. “It’s authentic; you look like a Williamsburg hipster,” she remembered telling him. (Ms. Connelly later released a more buttoned-up studio portrait.)

Here is the photo -- look I have photo credit.

Argo Great Film 6 bucks Village East Cinema before noon!

So moving....WOW...see this film!!!!!!!!!!!  Based on a true story of American's taken hostage in Iran -- it is a heart stopping true story.

This film is so good --- look at the article above for a colorful photo with Ben Affleck, John Goodman and Alan Arkin to give a hint this film is entertaining, a roll coaster ride and I don't read the next sentence if you don't want the ending revealed.

It ends happy, you see photos of the real photo vs actors, and Jimmy Carter gives us a summary at the end.

I shed some tears.

This is not Petraeus and company, dumb and dumber but our hero CIA agent Tony Mendez is everything you wish Petraeus was rather than writing character references for Jill Kelley's sister and think of Benghazi, Tony Mendez was so courageous, gutsy no wonder he was given an award - a star and not on Hollywood walk of fame.  I was impressed by the story, the acting and story telling.
Did Obama's administration really sell the YouTube lie in an era when our President has his own YouTube channel and FYI, I am a subscriber but I couldn't vote for Obama who is Bush lite.  I vote for the Green Party.

I am disappointed from  The White House to Albany to City Hall and just had a shocker with the NYPD that has changed my life and perceptions completely.

This film gave me hope and makes you appreciate how lucky you are to be alive and safe if in fact you are.

I see Oscars for Affleck's Argo.

ps if you see Argo in the East Village before noon you will pay 6 dollars versus Lincoln which costs 14 dollars.

Zipper Superb Film by Amy Nicholson 9:30 PM tonight IFC W. Village

Zipper Superb Film by Amy Nicholson 9:30 PM tonight IFC W. Village

Zipper Superb Film by Amy Nicholson 9:30 PM tonight IFC W. Village

Tonight be there -- if you can't restrain yourself boo Mike Bloomberg and Amanda The People's Burden -- the worse most evil city planner commissioner in NYC's history.

Where ever you live in NYC she has aided and abetted her greedy pals in busting through zoning to destroy our community so you can see her -- a mega-millionaire socialite looking ghoulish from too much plastic surgery and injections in her face making her look like a Coney Island Freak except she has no soul.

This is a film about fighting for the SOUL of NYC and how the Bloomberg administration talks out one side of their mouth but their actions are evil.

Watch this film about a historic amusement ride "Zipper" - you will be laugh and love the People of Coney Island -- laugh with them and cry too but you will never be board and yawn like one of the NYC gov representatives as a Coney Island Native fights for the heart and soul of the community.

Amy Nicholson captures the texture and beauty of the People their soul as Bloomberg's battalion of zombies with their black berries are interviewed and lie in your face lie they get in bed with Thor and you learn what a creep "Joey Coney Island" is what he calls himself but a sign posted where an amusement rides is tells him to drop dead or something like that.

This movie will be a cult classic with great music and film montage cross cuts showing the two sides dark and evil -- so mid night showing dress up like a Coney Island Freak and scream at the evil characters boo your heart out at Mike Bloomberg, Christine Quinn who looks EXTRA HIDEOUS -- really frightening but truly Amanda the People's Burden looks like she is like a soulless living dead zombie and she delights in bringing a Duane Reade to Coney Island!  She has a 40 million dollar trust for her kids.

Reminder Coney Island was RAVAGED by Hurricane Sandy and so was Coney Island's Hospital but greed and stupidity rule.  What is Joey of  Thor going to do if there is a Tsunami besides Bloomberg's corrupt Tsunami of Community Crushing development on old NY"s infrastructure.

The same story with the same characters starring Bloomberg, Amanda The People's Burden, Christine Quinn, all of City Council except Charles Barron and at the time Tony Avella as usual selling us out...

No St. Vincent's Hospital 120 W. 12th St
No St. Ann's Church 120 W E 12 We asked for protective zoning but as usual Bloomberg and The People' s Burden with NYU pushed through an illegal air sale by the corrupt mega-billion dollar loser The USPS to NYU and St. Ann's from 1847 destroyed.  Visit the location see the facade there like an Albatross around the NYU's mega dorm -- NYU mega dormed the East Village to death along with The New School, Cooper Union, NY Law, SVA.

See this excellent film because if you live in NYC these people -- the soulless army of Bloomberg's administration destroyed your community and the soul -- see this smart soulful entertaining film that will make you laugh and cry.

March Madness by Mike Vogel Off Broadway Worth Seeing by Suzannah B. Troy

March Madness by Mike Vogel Abingdon Theatre Company

This is an off Broadway little gem squeezed in to a smart set design underscoring with humor the decline of news reporting with a once award winning reporter for The NY Times writing copy dictated by advertisers for The Drug Store Times.

Note I regular accuse The NY Timed of killing stories on behalf of The Rudin Family as a personal favor to Howard Rubenstein and NYT paint Mike's mini Christine Quinn as Betty Crocker when even she admits St Vincent's Hospital and no Trauma Level 1 hospital with a rape crisis is her -- well maybe she won't admit but the NYT acts like her campaign manager.

Oh and I accuse NY1 Time Warner of firing news reporter for covering our Rudin Protest outside St. Vincent's because they are in bed with City Hall, Bloomberg, Rudin, Howard Rubenstein to get that Chelsea Market Upzoning through -- but hey that's just me.  

You get why I laughed and felt a sense if catharsis. The ending was a bit too easy but I was satisfied and entertained.

The acting was EXCELLENT!!!

Tom Mardirosian as Maury was truly outstanding and he deserves an award.

Mark Doherty as Nick so good I really didn't like him and I would have cast him in Oliver Stone's Wall St one or two -- never saw two.

I loved AJ Cedeno -- beautiful soulful quality which added more substance to his role and ditto for Lucy McMichael as Kim.

Brad Bellamy as Herb understated performance that was excellent as well.

I loved the F-bombing dropping too poor to retire Maury.

The play not plausible and had a TV sitcom vibe (Barney Miller days for u old folk :)) but really worth seeing.

No intermission and turn your texting and technology off as the 99 percent struggle to survive - a small play with lots of irony.

We have all been there -- jobs with our souls in our shoes -- bosses we hate-- co-workers we despise and those we love.

A joke about the human soul or lack there of my fav.

Aprox. 80 minutes long -- tight squeeze bring someone to cuddle?

“March Madness” continues through Nov. 18 at the Abingdon Theater, 312 West 36th Street, Manhattan; (212) 868-2055,
312 West 36th Street

ps  Thank David for bringing me to see this.  xoxoxoxoxo
