MANIBLOG: I AM RIGHT..and other assorted ramblings
RUBY THE KNISH MAN

I stayed a quarter mile down the road from THE CONCORD HOTEL, on KIAMESHA LAKE,at a bungalow colony called, “RYKE-INN”..Them Jews are so creative…Owner was SOL RYKEIN(or SOMETHING LIKE THAT) 
Needless to say, me and my sister, in OUR ULTIMATE COOLNESS came up with the name, “KIKE-INN”
Sol was a nasty unfriendly guy, a bah humbug, nasty to children kind of guy…That is until it was time to sign up for the following summer. Then he would stop off to everybody’s bungalow with a bottle of scotch, proceed to get you drunk, laugh, connect, be jolly, and get you to sign on the bottom line to take a bungalow for the next summer. 

We had one of THEE great JEWISH characters in the HISTORY of JEWISH characters, and Mr. Friedman, I know that’s saying a lot…He was,
“RUBY THE KNISH MAN”..The announcement would come over what is now, an antiquated PA system…There would be “3 Breaths, blows”, into the microphone, to make sure the mike was on and reaching all the renters,The announcement was then made…”RUBY THE KNISHMAN IS NOW ON THE PREMISES, RUBY THE KNISHMAN IS NOW ON THE PREMISES”..All the kids would come running. A Brooklyn, Borscht Belt LEGEND…..

TOTAL AND COMPLETE FUCKIN’ RIPOFF!!!!

Johny Hendricks reacts as though he would become the UFC welterweight champion. (Stephen R. Sylvanie, USA TODAY Sports)

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre successfully defended his title with a split decision win over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, much to the dismay of Twitter, including plenty of fighters.

But perhaps nobody was as livid about the outcome as UFC president Dana White, who took the Nevada State Athletic Commission to task for the judges’ 48-47, 47-48, 48-47 decision in favor of GSP.

Here’s what White said in an interview during the UFC 167 post-fight coverage on FOX:

“I gave Georges St-Pierre the third round, that’s it. … Nevada is a very scary place. This is the worst commission on the planet. I am afraid to bring fights to Las Vegas. I never thought I’d say that. This is the city I live in; this is the city I love. This is the worst commission on the planet.”

White continued:

“This is the thing that makes people not like fights. I don’t even know what to say. I’m still so blown away by it. Georges knew he lost, his corner knew he lost. Hendricks knew he won, his corner knew he won. … These guys, this commission is just despicably horrible.”

White even cautioned against the NSAC ruining MMA in the same way many believe it has boxing:

“The Nevada State Athletic Commission has a lot of work to do – a lot of work to do. And it makes me sick. They better get to work, and they better figure out how to not destroy, not only the sport of boxing, but this sport, too.”

In case it wasn’t clear, Saturday night is one White would rather forget.

HENDRICKS KICKED GSP’S ASS… PERIOD

IT WASNT EVEN CLOSE

4 rounds to 1
UFC= WASTE OF TIME!

LOOKED SO FORWARD TO THIS FIGHT!

TOP 5 ALL TIME BAD FIGHT DECISIONS
WATCHING BOXING SINCE 1962.
UFC SINCE #1 
NOT HAPPY AT ALL
REALLY MAKES ME THINK ABOUT NOT SUPPORTING THE UFC

OK. OK. EVERYBODY’S CHIMING IN WITH THEIR LOU STUFF, SO HERE GOES MINE’S:

EARLIEST MEMORY:

GOING OVER TO SCOTT KEMPNER’S HOUSE IN THE BRONX, ASKING IF HIS PARENTS WERE HOME. AFTER GETING A NO FOR AN ANSWER, PROCEEDED TO SCOTT’S ROOM. PUT ON A RED LIGHT BULB, AND PROCEEDED TO MAKE A HASH PIPE OUT OF A METAL KAZOO. ALUMINUM FOIL WITH HOLES PUNCHED ON TOP. HASH PLACED ON TOP OF FOIL. HOLD THE END, AND SUCK IN.

ALL THE WHILE GROVIN’ TO THE FIRST VELVETS RECORD, WHICH I IMMEDIATELY FELL IN LOVE WITH.

2ND MEMORY:

BUYING A BLUE SUEDE “DUNGAREE JACKET”(I KNOW, “DUNGAREE” IS ANTIQUATED!) AT PAUL SARGENT’S IN THE WEST VILLAGE. WITH PURCHASE OF $50.00 (OR SO) OR MORE, YOU GOT TO PICK AN LP. AS I RIFELED THROUG T HE ALBUMS, I RECOGNIZED FEW. SCOTT “TOPTEN” KEMPNER WAS WITH ME AND GUIDED ME TO PICK, “WHITE LIGHT, WHITE HEAT”, BY THE VELVET UNDERGROUND. A GREAT CHOICE.


3RD MEMORY:

RUNNING INTO LOU AT NATHAN’S ON 42ND ST. AND BROADWAY AT 2 AM. ALL OF THE DICTATORS FAWNED OVER HIM. WE LOVED LOU, IN SPITE OF OUR WISEASS PUNK ROCK LINE, “I THINK LOU REED IS A CREEP”, IN THE SONG, “TWO TUB MAN”

IN A LATER INTERVIEW, LOU WAS ASKED ABOUT ABOVE “CREEP” LINE
HIS RESPONSE?(PARAPHRASING)
"OH, I RAN INTO THOSE GUYS AT NATHAN’S AND THEY WERE FAWNING ALL OVER ME!"
ES VERDAD!!!!!!!!

4TH MEMORY(FINAL)

ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO, LOU, MICK ROCK, AND JOHN VARVATOS WERE HAVING A PANEL AT JOHN’S STORE, CELEBRATING MICK’S BOOK ON LOU.

TWICE, LOU CURMUDGEONLY TOLD THE AUDIENCE TO STOP TALKING OR GET THE FUCK OUT. PUNK ROCK?…YOU TELL ME!

I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A LIBRARY. LOU WAS ESPOUSING THE VIRTUES OF ROCK AND ROLL, ALL THE WHILE SHUSHING EVERYBODY.

I WAS THERE HANGING WITH DANNY FIELDS, AND STANDING NEXT TO BOB GRUEN. WE KEPT WHISPERING IN EACH OTHER’S EARS, TO THE CHAGRIN OF AN ALTER COCKER STANDING CLOSE ENOUGH TO US.

"SHUT UP" SHE TOLD ME. "GO FUCK YOURSELF" I ANSWERED.

THEN, MY CELL PHONE RINGER WENT OFF. I USUALLY AM HYPER SENSITIVE TO PUTTING ON MY PHONE ON VIBRATE AT THESE OCCASIONS. I FORGOT.

MY RINGER IS THE GODFATHER THEME. LOU HEARD IT AND PROCLAIMED, “THAT’S THE WORST CELL PHONE RING I HAVE EVER HEARD”

"LOU", I DARED! ANSWER BACK, "THE GODFATHER THEME IS THE WORST CELL PHONE RING YOU EVER HEARD", I SAID INCREDULOUSLY, LOOKING DIRECTLY INTO LOU’S EYES, AND HE LOOKING BACK AT ME

A BIG SECURITY GUARD PUT HIS HAND ON MY SHOULDER FOR DARING TO CROSS TALK. I SHRUGGED IT OFF.

I LAUGHED ABOUT THE WHOLE THING WITH BOB GRUEN, AGAIN, TOO LOUD FOR THE NEARBY ALTER COCKER.

"BE QUIET OR LEAVE," SHE TOLD ME AGAIN.
AGAIN I REITERATED, “FUCK YOU”…

AT THAT MOMENT I REALIZED, I WANT TO GET OUT OF HERE.

ON MY WAY OUT, MY HIGHLIGHT OF THE EVENING HAPPENED. A TALL DROPDEAD GORGEOUS MODEL STOPPED ME. SAID, “I LOVE YOUR NECKLACE”..

"WHICH ONE", I ASKED. I WEAR 3. AN AA SYMBOL, A STAR OF DAVID, AND NY YANKEE BLINGY THING.

"THE YANKEE ONE", THE MODEL ANSWERED. I AM NOT JUST A FAN, I LOVE LOVE LOVE AND ADORE THE NY YANKEES.

I THANKED HER FOR HER GREAT TASTE, AND INVITED HER TO MANITOBA’S.

THE NIGHT ENDED ON A HIGH NOTE!

LOU, THANK YOU FOR BEING AN IMPORTANT PART OF MY CULTURE, MY MUSICAL LIFE.

REST IN PEACE, MR. REED

This is a story about luggage.
Let’s face it folks, If I put a LUGGAGE photo up, who would LOOK?

I called Altman Luggage on the L E S..They quoted me between $50.00 and $90.00 to fix my broken Samsonite luggage  handle.So I went to the BAG STORE on Broadway (11th St, 12th St?)in the East Village, and they suggested MODERN LEATHER GOODS @  2 W. 32nd Street

Zoe and I go up there. We sit for 15 minutes and while we wait, we notice, how nice, pleasant, and professional the man behind the counter is, in treating his customers. This business is  family  run  and  handed down for generations.After our wait , I ask the guy “How much for the NEW HANDLE they put in?”..I must mention that I had no receipt for the luggage."NOTHING" was the man’s answer…."NOTHING?!?!?", I asked incredulously. "Not that I’m complaining, but how can that be?"…."Even with out a receipt, SAMSONITE will fix you bag for free FOR LIFE!"..The bag is 15 years old and was in great shape except for the broken handle.

SO FOLKS

EAST SIDE COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL Pt. II

WhenI first told people about the school Jake would be attending, 2 parents responded ” Ooh, I hear bad things . It’s very rough there.”

Well schools are buildings, with walls, books, computers, etc . and PEOPLE. PEOPLE make the school. I am so very impressed with the principal, his staff, all the teachers, parents and entire community that this school offers . We are thrilled . It’s a city school that’s like a private school, with small classes great education, and tons of assistance and programs.but much cooler than a pvt. school bc it’s a nice cultural EV mix and I am so happy we didn’t choose the other ” safer” school which impressed me ZERO.

I WILL BE READING CHUCK (THREE DOG NIGHT) NEGRON, and DICK CLARK, TONIGHT!!!!..COME ON DOWN!
