Lip-Synch Maven Stalked By Drunk Driving Frontman

From the New York Post’s Richard Johnson.

Ashlee Simpson can handle hecklers, but she couldn’t deal with the menacing Lower East Side artist Peter Missing. Simpson was in the middle of a sweatshirt shopping spree at Loft Shoe Productions on Ludlow Street last Wednesday when the toothless, grizzled anarchist, best known for his graffiti of an upside-down martini glass to protest drunk driving checkpoints, came into the store. According to witnesses, Missing nastily stared Simpson down until she fled next door, leaving her mother, Tina, to sort out her $600 tab. “We’ve had to kick him out before,” said owner Anne Hanavan. “He’s not appealing, and he tries to sell his paintings to our celebrity clients.”

Shame they couldn’t at least have a chatted — there was a great mash-up in here somewhere.

In a completely unrelated story, Cincinnati assistant basketball coach Keith LeGree has resigned after being charged with driving while under the influence over the weekend. Presumably under the influence of alcohol, as opposed to the new Bun B. CD, but they didn’t really specify.

    “an upside-down martini glass to protest drunk driving checkpoints”

    uh, say what? i thought the whole deal was about “the party’s over,” ie. an end to the yuppie lifestyle of nyc in the 80s. though i suppose someone who was there can fill us in, eh gerard?

    I guess you can go either way. the “party’s over thing” atop a x-ed out foundation = MISSING FOUNDATION, which has a loose thematic tie to P.M.’s prior band, the sludgetastic Drunk Driving.

    Naturally, as a NYC yuppie (think of Pat Bateman in “American Psycho”, only with much worse taste in clothes, furniture, music and ladies) circa the go-go 1980′s, I took tremendous offense at the very existence of Missing Foundation. To this day I can’t even look at the logo without crying.
