The Denier



PLATTSBURGH CITY, NY -- 6/7/19


Another day, another peaceful demonstration in Trinity Park, Downtown Plattsburgh.  The event was organized by The Climate Reality Project, Northern Adirondack Region, NY Chapter to keep the public aware of the climate change threat.



The demonstration attracted the attention of a denier -- the man with his back to the camera -- who claimed that the Earth was an organism with a self-filtering system to handle any bad stuff.  I assume this system acts like a planetary liver.


The denier went on for twenty minutes.

Patience is a virtue.

TRASHburgh Gets Graphic


By Luke T. Bush


Shannon Stott-Rigsbee prepares the sign for the TRASHburgh Comix launch party. 

PLATTSBURGH CITY, NY -- 5/31/19

TRASHburgh has invaded another medium: comic books.

Previous TRASHburgh projects include an online video series that take a wry (or more accurately awry) look at local news and events.

Tedium created the impetus for the comic.  Creators Matt Hall and Chris Stott-Rigsbee will attest six months of winter results in abysmal boredom.

To launch the first issue of TRASHburgh Comix -- # 0 -- a meet and greet was held Friday evening at the pop up space City Well at 30 City Hall Place.

The plan is to publish seasonally, the next issue to appear this fall.

The first printing sold out and more will be available later through https://trashburgh.com/ .  For more info: trashburgh@gmail.com .



Co-creators Dom Monett and Lydia Meises produced the lead story "The Crows"
based upon an actual situation during the winter: crows mobbing in trees and fecally carpet bombing downtown.


TRASHburgh Comix contributor Liz Allen discusses her art.
