This image was taken in 2015 at Plum Cove Beach just as the sun was setting it’s one of my favorites and really began my journey as an artist showing my work.
It’s always amazing to drive around town the morning of the Fish Town Horribles Parade and see all the empty chairs and decorations! All of these shots were taken with my iPhone while fighting through traffic to drop off stuff at our GMG party corner. So this one is for all those folks who are not home, or moved out of town, enjoy! Now stop by the GMG tent and party with us!!!
You’ve got to be brave to show the kites who’s boss…
“See, you gotta sneak up on it, poke it with the stick and if it moves run like hell!!”

Here’s the video we debuted Friday night at the Dog Bar. Please enjoy, share, and repeat! (click the gear tap to get HD)
This video was a true run-and-gun production. We had about 30 minutes to film the EMPIRE scenes, and about 1 hr for the DOG BAR scenes. The only crew on the shoot was me, and it was all hand held with on rigs, jibs, or gadgets. Paul, aka Pocket Tanya, is an amazing self-producing artist from Gloucester. He has endless energy while performing live, and develops a true connection with his audience at every performance. Paul writes, sings, raps, and produces some amazing tracks. With an amazing mix of 80’s, funk, pop, and hip hop, he somehow upholds all of those styles while creating his sound he calls “Junkie Pop.” If you ever get the chance, get out and support local artists like Pocket Tanya!
A very special thank you to Jeff Amero for sharing his awesome party location!
Now that we have re-established the GMG Mug Up tradition on Saturday mornings at 9:30 on Madfish Wharf (so our fearless leader Joey can be there!), it is time for one of our famous and fun GMG Food Competitions. Over the years, we have had many different types food competitions, and we want to come up with something that the awesome cooks / bakers out there in GMG land will clamor to be a part of. Joey wants it to be a cupcake competition (he is going to be one of the judges with his girls as assistants, along with James Eves and Richard Rosenfeld). Cupcakes are great, but we wanted to let those of you who would like to enter and have the chance of winning a coveted GMG food competition winner ribbon, and go down in annals of GMG history as the best at whatever it is you make really well, tell us what you would like the competition to be.
Please reply by commenting on this post if you are interested in being a contender, and what food you would like the competition to be. Majority will rule. There is no real prep area, so it has to be something you can bring in prepared and ready to go to the judges (with a little extra for Mug Up attendees to try). Don’t include a beverage. If Bob Ryan is game to sponsor another Bloody Mary or other beverage competition made with a Ryan & Wood Distilleries spirit, we’ll do that later in the season.
Madfish Wharf is hopping this summer. Saturday morning 9:30am come for GMG Mug Up and food competition at YUPO Gallery / Khan Studio & the GMG Gallery. Come hang with your favorite GMG peeps, fobs and Rocky Neck artists and neighbors on beautiful Madfish Wharf. Saturday, August 23rd will be our first GMG Food Competition of the season. Let’s get some rockin GMG peep/fob summer fun going while we still can.
It was just terrible. Hurricane force winds, torrential downpours, lost two or three people overboard, the boat was a filthy mess, the most rude obnoxious people you’d ever wanna meet.
A total disaster evidenced by the pictures.
Better pictures on the way from Kim Smith (I was too busy trying to keep people from abandoning ship to take photos)
Look at the sheer misery on these faces-
That James Eves, he doesn’t know how to have a good time does he?
In all seriousness I can’t extend enough thanks to Tom,Kay and Heath Ellis and their crew as well as Bobby and Doug Ryan from Ryan and Wood our local distillery, and Paul Giacalone for providing excellent excellent smokes.
Check out Ryan and Wood for a tour of their facility, it is amazing http://www.ryanandwood.com/
and if you haven’t been on a sail aboard the Lannon (the most beautiful boat in Gloucester Harbor by a mile) you really need to, especially if you have guests in from out of town. It is my number one must do thing I tell people when they ask me what they need to do while in town. You get to see Gloucester Harbor in all it’s glory on the most beautiful boat in the harbor with the friendliest crew in the harbor. Total no brainer city easy recommendation for the win.

I’m just sayin…
It’s a great way for the GMG FOBs to communicate.
While in New York recently I checked out a fruit and vegetable cart at 93rd and 2cnd. Got to speak with a few other people at the cart too. Overall pretty grumpy crowd of former football and baseball fans… Even though they decided I was not to be liked, I was allowed to represent GMG!
