Nite Moves -- and Steve Barnes -- on the Colbert Report


Heh. The Colbert Report last night recognized Nite Moves owner Stephen Dick as a "difference maker" for his fight to have stripping regarded as an art form. For tax purposes. So he wouldn't have to pay a lot of back taxes.

Steve Barnes plays a prominent role in the segment, lending his expertise in art criticism. And what it's like to have breast sweat smeared on your glasses. (Steve says over at Table Hopping that he's "generally pleased" with how his appearance turned out.)

As you know, Nite Moves recently lost its case before the state's highest court in a 4-3 decision.

Lousy art is still art!

The richness of the Capital District arts makes it into the NATIONAL spotlight!!! Oh... wait a minute...

For fans of bad art, check out the Museum of Bad Art.

This reminds me of US v. Larry Flynt. Sleazy guy with a reasonable point.

Also, this part of the show caught me by surprise and I nearly died laughing.

Way to represent, SB! Holla!

I'm not "that" sleazy. You're just stereotyping me.

I went to one last month. My friend took his oath of citizenship. It is a great ceremony. A local school choir sang. There was a moving speech from one of the new citizens who grew up a refugee and at the age of 21 was finally a citizen of a country for the first time in her life. The League of Women Voters give warm welcomes, flags and voter registration cards to all the new citizens. It gave me such warm fuzzies. Everyone should try to go to one of these if they get the chance.
