Trusto Corp, Kid Acne and EMA Trample Through Brooklyn

Aided by Kid Acne’s small army of sword wielding vixens and EMA’s genteel mustachioed dude, Trusto Corp left some words for thought on the streets of Williamsburg.

Geez it’s great to be back home in the freezing bitter city!  What have we missed?

Went parading through the ever-changing Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn yesterday and BAM, we’ve been hit! Always keep your eyes peeled in Brooklyn, even as you hobble up the street shaking from cold, avoiding patches of black ice. It’s amazing how sometimes things come in threes, like the Three Muskateers, the Three Stooges, and of course, Triple XXX ratings at your local porno theatre.

Kid Acne, whoever that is, must also be a fashion designer or a costume designer or just fancies laddies who play dress-up – because this new fleet of pastie-ups are chic and sexified, and possibly violent. EMA rings in that old-world charm with the oval locket portraits of a guy who is probably part of a barbershop quartet.  And don’t ask me about Trusto Corp – these very seriously realistic looking signs have a variety of sentiments that range from encouraging illegality to insulting me for being fat. Which I’m not!

That SO cannot be true! I am in Williamsburg! By DEFINITION I must be cool. Right? Right? (Trusto Corp) (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Kid Acne's ladies are now carrying swords all the time, have you noticed? Makes me think of that Tina Turner song "What's Love Got to Do With It". ("I've been thinkin' of my own protection") (© Jaime Rojo)

You might want to trim that - looks like trees are growing! (EMA) (photo ©Jaime Rojo)

Is that a threat or a promise? Either way arms are involved (Trusto Corp) (photo © Jaime Rojo)

And so is the life of these signs. Half of them are already gone! Weird. There used to be more of these boardy type pieces around - I think the department of Transportation must take them down, or fans. (Trusto Corp) (photo © Jaime Rojo)
