(or any interim proxy)
-- Wherever the Lyceum or any interim proxy goes,
art is sure to be part of the mix.
-- As we seek to exhibit art
at the Brooklyn Lyceum (or any interim proxy),
we need to seek submissions for the exhibits.
-- To that end, we are accepting submission appications now.
- One such exhibit may be in :
- an approximately 1,000 square foot venue
with 25 foot ceilings in New York State.
- (location secret till we sign lease)
- We Expect:
- two group exhibitions of 6 weeks each; and,
- one 4 week solo exhibition
-- If that interests you or your group, pursue that at THESMEE.COM
to do what Judge Donald Scott Kurtz was required by law to do:
(dismiss case as abandoned, based on record before the court at the time), or,
- to do what the court must now do:
(unwind the Foreclosure Sale of the Brooklyn Lyceum as well as the Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale that allowed it for, at a minimum, failure to serve any papers on Lyceum attorney)
given what Judges Reinaldo E. Rivera, John M. Leventhal, Sylvia O. Hinds-Radix and Valerie Brathwaite Nelson did do
(find October 17, 2012 came AFTER October 26, 2012 & alter the docket to insert appearance by Lyceum attorney in order to avoid dismissal as abandoned)
so that we can implement that programming when we get rolling, whether at the actual Brooklyn Lyceum or an interim one.
--YOU CAN ... participate in programming the Lyceum
score curatorial votes by brain, body or past effort.
Simple things to do to help the Lyceum due process cause:
- --Take poll and tell us what you think of a couple of judges and their simple to interpret actions.
- --Note presence of a document Plaintiff withheld from the court for 3 years.*
- --Note sworn statement by Plaintiff counsel about that document.*
- --Note lack of a particular document from the early (and short) record of the case.*
- --Note date of notice of a motion.
- --Note date that notice instructs all to appear.
- --Note datetime stamp of a document entry (motion)(A).
- --Note datetime stamp of a document entry (decision)(B)..
- --Note A comes BEFORE B.
- --Note Appellate decision that finds A comes AFTER B.
- --Make appearance at hearing (watched court more likely to follow the rules).
- --Contribute a case citation to the cause (if you have legal mojo in ya bones).
- --Buy swag for future curatorial voting rights.
- --Contribute $$ to the cause for future curatorial voting rights. *= and sign affidavit about what a 5th grader should see.
Individual affidavits about any of the above gets you __ votes.
More complicated ones get you __ votes.
-- As we seek to provide programming
for when the Brooklyn Lyceum (or any interim proxy) returns,
we need to see a LOT
of music, theatre, dance, comedy, etc.
-- To that end, we are accepting invitations
to see such work
to investigate if that work (or that group)
would be a good fit for the Lyceum (or any interim proxy).
-- In addition, we are also open to invitations
to see work for an actual written review
(whether or not there is any intent to present at the Lyceum).
We will post the review online, send it to email and social media, where appropriate.
-- If that interests you or your group, pursue that at OOBLE.ORG
more flavor, less labor.
from our espresso cellar!
-- 15 years of a Brooklyn coffee shop/cafe and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy taught us that there is another, better, more ecological, way.
-- When the espresso dusts dust settles, the new boss will be different from the old boss.
--Till then we are pulling espress shots the SwaSlu way, on the road again!
--We make it a point not to be a roaster and will be presenting multitudes of flavors of roasters from, well, everywhere at locations, events, markets and fairs.
--Interested in better americanos/lattes than you could ever do at home?

(judicial "thumb on the scale" (Donald Scott Kurtz) or not).
Overturning Brooklyn Lyceum Foreclosure case is simple (and inevitable). no more judicial places to run to, baby, no more judicial places to hide*. (*=credits to law of unintended consequences and Martha and the Vandellas)
on cases for next papers,
Affidavit about some 5th grader level logic,
when the covid crisis is done,
(case citation and opinions)
--can't figure out which is greater of two numbers or
--can't see that the Plaintiff noticed parties to appear a decade in the past or
--premises decisions on non-existent documents, i
how can you trust those judges with things that are complicated?
Take a look at some crystal clear STUPIDS and tell us what you think of a judge who would do these types of STUPIDS.
We are seeking 100 citations (in any jurisdiction) to support each of the premises that will set the Brooklyn Lyceum free.
If you are first to subit an on point case (even if it contradicts our position), you will earn, if you leave your email address, one Brooklyn Lyceum Curatorial vote.
Review a couple of dates or a couple of lines in some documents or note the absense of a document from a short record and sign an affidavit that you swear to. Just the facts, no conclusions necessary.
Send us the affidavit(s) and, if they are true to form and content, you will earn some Lyceum street cred via curatorial voting rights you can use, transfer or exchange (ten (10) votes for each accepted affidavit and one (1) vote for each use of the affidavit in court papers).
To that end, if you appear at specified junctures, just as an observer, you will get twenty (20) votes.
Lastly, we may need to have fliers distributed at places out and about.
To that end, for each hour of flier distribution, you will get ten (10) votes.
To stop this madness, we endeavor to review all (2018-2020) Appellate Oral Arguments and review papers and decisions to document such malfeasances and outright lies by the Appellate Court.

Roving art show
like a pirate on the seven seas, The Smee Art Show is always on the move. MORE
Art makes us what we are, and, when it is ignored, takes away a part of what we could be.
Most importantly, art is often, no matter the talent or effort or time to make the piece, far too expensive for most of us.
Artist have to eat and so do the buyers.
What is usually the answer is for the artist to eschew exposure to the masses until they have reached great acclaim.
That road to fame is almost always fatal to the earnings of the artist, and to the career of the artist as well.
Enter The Smee, an art exhibit intending to get the art into the hands of a wider audience before that artist has become so famous the average joe cannot afford their art.
Some artists may choose not to participate having looked deep into their soul and finding the process lacking.
Other artists will seize the day and enter The Smee.
Make it so.

Captain Kirk would have a tough time with Brooklyn Courts
Star Trek's Captain Kirk re-programmed a Star Fleet Academy simulation that was designed to have the Star Fleet candidate either lose his ship, himself and all his crew in battle or lose a freighter (the Kobayashi Maru) in the Neutral Zone.
That was a situation no one could win, a Catch-22. In Brooklyn Courts we have a worse situation, judges re-programming (altering) the docket to avoid what the record and the abandonment statute, CPLR 3215(c) required, dismissal of the case as abandoned.
The Brooklyn Lyceum, aka Public Bath #7 (by Raymond Francis Almirall), a community fixture for 20 years as a theater / cafe / gym / batting cage, needs your help, a couple of affidavits, and, if it works with your schedule, an appearance here and there to let the courts know someone is watching.
The courts (lower and appellate), in an ill advised attempt to short circuit due process for the Brooklyn Lyceum (made up multiple dispositive facts, selectively quoted caselaw, altered the docket for the benefit of the Plaintiff, ignored attorney perjury, ...), created a winnable battle for the Brooklyn Lyceum in that, under the altered record:
- Plaintiff failed to serve initial Notice of Motion (or any papers whatsoever) on Lyceum Attorney.
- Plaintiff Notice of Motion cites, as the required document, an affidavit that does not exist.
- Plaintiff Notice of Motion dated October 13, 2009 cites non-existent, and impossible, October 26, 2009 Affidavit.
- Plaintiff Notice of Motion asks for relief (Judgment of Foreclosure and Order of Reference) under a statute that does not allow for Judgment of Foreclosure or Order of Reference.
- Decision by Judge Donald Scott Kurtz is premised on two affidavits that do not exist, one cited to by the Plaintiff in the motions papers, and, one out of whole judicial cloth.
- Same Decision grants relief not requested in Motion (Judgment of Default) and relief not available under the statute presented as the basis for the Motion (Order of Reference).
- Another Notice of Motion, to foreclose on the Lyceum, notices everyone on March 18, 2011, to attend a hearing on April 17, 2001, A DECADE IN THE PAST!!
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP:
- Read, and mentally process, all the tabs. We know it will take some effort, but the payoff is worth it. If you already believe us and want to dig right in, read and become one with the 4 RED tabs.
- Sign & send a couple of affidavits regarding what you have processed regarding the bullet points above.
- If it works with your schedule, show up at a hearing on occasional basis.
- Or, if direct participation is not your bag, buy things from brooklynlycem.com/viewart or roxysteeparlour.com .
- Or, if you just want to help in the least involvement way possible, give $$ to the cause (https://brooklynlyceum.com/viewart/5) that may entail a new attorney and two projects to help keep this from happening to other people.
THE PAYOFF: Convert your affidavits and our use of your affidavits or your appearance at some hearings or your contributions into curatorial voting rights when the Brooklyn Lyceum rises from the ashes. Help program a venue that has seen the likes of Fiona Apple, Amanda Palmer, Vernon Reid, Yo La Tengo,
Marc Ribot, Jose Gonzalez, and scores of others.
