PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY MAY 4, 2022) — Today, THE PLANET breaks from the madness and mysteries of the streets.

On Friday, Pittsfield registers its inaugural First Friday ArtsWalk. Tops among the several venues, according to our biased review, is the gathering at the Universal Unitarian building (formerly the home of the England family of England Brothers department store fame), 175 Wendell Ave. The building alone is worth the visit.

The venerable venue will host a double bill, the only two-fer of this Friday’s festivities. Two for the price of nothing. As in free and open to all.

———- ooo ———-

From 5 to 8 p.m., the venue presents “Valenti & Valenti: An Evening of Art and Poetry.” Yes, you can meet and greet MRS. PLANET and THE PLANET, the first in person, the second in poison (if you prefer). You can delight in the award-winning art of this beautiful woman of outsized talent. She happens to be our wife.

From 5 to 8 p.m., Lisa Valenti presents her masterwork collection of collage, paintings,  furniture, concept pieces, sculpture, resin works, and ephemera. In an adjacent room, THE PLANET hosts and emcees a poetry reading featuring Yours Truly, opening for two of the nation’s most accomplished writers and poets, Jerri Chaplin of Charleston, SC, and Paul Kocak of Syracuse, NY. We will be reading from our just-published collaborative volume of new work, Third Person Singular: 33 1./3 Poems Each (Planet Media Books).

THE PLANET would love to see you and yours. You can happily escape into the wondrous world of fabulous art, take an hour to enjoy a Big League literary presentation by THE PLANET et. al., then return to art. Works will be available for sale and signing. It’ll be fun. Hurrah and heckle, hoot and holler — The “huzzahs and happy hollers” for MRS. PLANET, Chaplin, and Kocak. The heckles and hoots for THE PLANET (be forewarned, though; we know how to handle hecklers!).

———- ooo ———

LISA VALENTI

Lisa, a veteran of many openings and exhibits, says of her work: “In my studio, I take trinkets and small toys, machine parts and found objects, gears and screws, for example, and I give them new life. Individually, these objects are unnoticed, but together they create their own ‘family.’ They make something attractive and become noticed. My studio looks like a disarray of toys and clutter alongside a tidy set-up of paints, brushes, and canvasses. I explore most all media until I find my own style, one that moves me, that digs into my core, and I stay with it at length before moving on to my next project. My art becomes my therapy, as there is always something I’m working on from past hurts and new joys. An eclectic mix of dark and light, it’s easy to see my work is no aimless undertaking. When you look at my art, you are looking at and inside me.”

JERRI CHAPLIN

From Charleston, SC, Chaplin is a certified poetry therapist. She was the first poet-in-residence at the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston. Chaplin’s work has been widely anthologized and has won numerous awards, including the National Association for Poetry Therapy’s Outstanding Achievement Award. She has served as VP of the National Association. Her readings have included Charleston’s prestigious Piccolo Spoleto Festival. In June, Chaplin will teach an OLLI course on “The Poetry of Animals” at Berkshire Community College. That course is open now to enrollment.

PAUL KOCAK

Kocak, a former newspaperman, has written books on subjects ranging from sports to travel to Leonard Cohen. Kocak has published numerous pieces in media across the country, including the Washington Post, New York magazine, and the UK New Statesman. His travel books on Iceland and Italy have been favorably compared to the works of Paul Theroux. Kocak is the author of 20 books. Two of his baseball books, Baseball’s Starry Night and Chasing Willie Mays, are regarded as classics in the game’s literature. His books are available on Amazon. He blogs at thelaughorist.blogspot.com. 

DAN VALENTI

Berkshire Magazine called Dan Valenti “Berkshire County’s most prolific journalist.” The Albany Times-Union labeled him a “one-man mob scene.” His forthcoming book, Write It Real: A Practical Guide for the Prose Writer (Peter Lang Publishing), will be released June 30. Valenti writes, edits, and publishes Planet Valenti, the most trafficked blog in Western Massachusetts. He has written numerous books and has decades of experience in talk radio and TV, script writing, and investigative reporting. He has also taught writing and media for 30 years at LeMoyne College, Syracuse, and at Berkshire Community College.

Hope to see you on Friday. Tell ’em THE PLANET sent you.

The beautiful Berkshires comes alive from Spring to Autumn with the arts. I wish I could attend the arts gathering. Indeed, it is a wonderful break from predictable Pittsfield politics, Beacon Hill still sitting on billions of dollars in state cash, the Swamp spending us/U.S. into oblivion, Putin threatening the world with his nuclear weapons toy box, and so on. Life is short, and I hope it is sweet, too.

A little bit of fun news, the HBO show ‘The Gilded Age’ is doing some location scouting in the Berkshires. They plan on shooting a few story lines here in the Berkshires, mostly in and around Lenox and Stockbridge. They’ve contacted a number of people involved in the Tub Parade to provide horses and carriages.
Some background shots in august and September with primary filming being shot in September. Two units will be in the Berkshires as well as most of the main cast of actors. These scenes will include cross over characters from ‘Downton Abbey’; Shirley MacLaine and Paul Giamatti.
For those that don’t know ‘The Gilded Age’ is a US prequel to ‘Downton Abbey’ set in the Gilded Age, 1870-1900.

What I got out of the scooter presser.

No way to keep the kids off of them and no suggestion that they want to

Good idea to wear helmets but no one is going to enforce it

900 rides taken so far which they are thrilled about (no mention that most were young kids weaving in and out of traffic in a dangerous manner)

If you say anything negative you are a meany…Barry wants kids to have fun

Mayor says they will be great for grocery shopping. (she seriously said that) She said just put on a back pack. Two problems with that. One is that an unbalanced load on your back could be dangerous driving anything. Also, once you get into your store you have 15 minutes to get back to your scooter before someone may drive off with it. Not a lot of time. Someone also said great for running out for lunch. Once again, hope you can stuff that meal down like you are in a hot dog eating contest and get back to your machine.
Of all the talking heads present there was no one from the police dept. who have had their hands full with these things. Guess no one wanted to hear their opinions.

Hey kids,
e-scooter on over to the taxpayer funded Supervised Injection Center for Kids (SICK) where you can watch and learn how to get high right here in Massachusetts’ most Pittyful City. No questions asked, it’s a low barrier site to get hooked right next to staff that can help revive you so you can live to ride and dose again. Our District Attorney is even championing this new form of recreation tailor made for hopeless people. And she won’t even prosecute your dealer. Drug trafficking, camping in public, cars broken into, brazen thieves who steal cause they just need stuff and nobdy will do anything! No consequences, no personal responsibility, it’s progressive! Come on down!

Are city offficials knowingly encouraging or allowing children to operate scooters in vehicular traffic? Are city officials assuming most Pittsfield children are mature and astute enough to drive these scooters responsibly and safely in an area where there are stop and go buses and multiple delivery trucks coming and going?
They say they are gathering data. And their data is showing that children are the overwhelming users of these scooters. A few weeks ago everyone was freaking out about a man shot by police in a tricky situation. But now all of a sudden they are encouraging children to play in traffic? WTF

I sure would not want to be the ambulance driver to show up for that first mangled child. And there is no way it is not going to happen.

The city built and refurbished (at enormous expense) a fenced in area on Appleton Ave for kids to skateboard and have fun with their dare devil hormones. Why? Was it to keep these kids from weaving in and out of traffic on their skate boards because it is dangerous to do so? And if so, why is it OK to weave in and out of traffic with scooters if you are young and inattentive? Possibly high and on your phone completely oblivious to your surroundings.

So it would not seem to be in the cards this year that the city will come to their senses and make North St 2 lanes again and eliminate all the idiocy of the bike lanes throughout the Pitts. From what I read here Stanley Steamer Teenage Mosquito abuser and Beacon robber is behind this whole Ricky Rumpass death trap When can Pittsfield gain some common sense and stop running to every snake oil salesman? Thankfully my time here is nearing the end but I worry for the younger generations, the city leaders really have no idea on the destruction they are imposing on the city and the youth.

This should be a cluster^*&%. “The new Violent Crime Task Force.” Almost four years in Harrington has her first defendant under this BS campaign promise Under what law would a rape case be kept in district court? Why doesn’t the headline say “DA unable to try accused in court-required 120 days, asks for more time?”
With a headline like this the Eagle is guilty of providing cover for this incompetent boob.

I hope but I’m not too confident, that the media will finally get going and put a spotlight on what is going on in court. The defense bar is vocal privately about the constant flow of cases Harrington drops without a fight especially domestic violence. Unless someone goes and gets this info we certainly won’t get it from the DA. Her campaign statement is laughable. Andrea Harrington has fought tirelessly to build a more just, transparent, and effective criminal legal system in Berkshire County. I think she means failed.

The city has purchased at least $2,500 worth of Bird gift cards/credits and have handed them out to local not for profits and to some schools. That’s why the use is so high and why you are seeing so many kids riding these things.

There’s also a couple emails and a directive to the police to “go easy” on traffic enforcement with the scooters.

The kids already learned how to hack the scooters. If you start a transaction, lift the scooter up so it’s running, then immediately cancel the transaction, you aren’t charged any money but the scooter is running. As long as you don’t let scooters wheels come to a complete stop, you’ll be able to ride it until it runs out of battery.
I was wondering why kids were holding up the scooters and passing them around.

The contractors that pick the scooters up are supposed to operate only after 9pm but that’s not happening now.

No cost to the city….(except what you don’t know and they ain’t gonna tell ya)

Bird approached the city last fall looking for an opportunity to invest in micro-mobility in Pittsfield. Morales embraced the offer and was able to make a partnership with the company that benefits the city in multiple ways.

It is at no cost to the city and the Bird has agreed to hold all liability. Pittsfield’s only job is to provide messaging and education. 

In addition, there is a revenue-sharing agreement with the city that gives it 15 cents for every ride.

Ok – read the survey. If they are going after Renoir, that’s not DEI matter- that’s the epicenter of my movement’s revolt against bad art and Modernism/Post-Modernism. Renoir painted sausages and called them chicks. Hateful evil things that should never have been painted in the first place. I walk past that horrid satanic room, the glow of putrid yellow flab poisons me to the point of sick intoxication even though me eyes be closed. Don’t believe me? Look fresh for yourself. Tubular arms and appendages the color of frozen Hillshire kielbasa with little sausage noses. Flattened eye’s swim in some magical space neither attached to head nor possessing form of their own responding correctly to light which, as you know from the Republic, is that which lets one know that which is able to be known without being known in and of itself. We, NAACP and US, stand as inseparable blood brothers in this fight. Give me knife and I commit at once. All ARPA (2/3 trillion $fn’$$$$) is properly theirs if possible. The Second Renaissance will be fueled by lettuce, and it will take a lot of cash to do it again. Because of the reign of skepticism, Neitzshe, hegel, kant, marx, Clinton (both) it will take much more than the first.

If, however, they are going after Rubens, Piero D. Francesca, Ph.D., Gossaert (aka Mabuse), there is no reconciliation between us and them on this profane ground and the real.

But – what about us who have been fired by just about everybody in private? The challenge to holding a job is quitting before you get stuffed headfirst into a cannon and shot out.

I think what you are really saying is those who can’t get a private job because they require gumption, a resumet, and come with responsibility, infringement on time and behavior, and present a competitive and adverse environment, so instead these critters grab the first patronage gov jobs offered.

The Birds have landed according to the Berkshire Eagle…the bird-e-scooters. Pictures show young people riding them, but nobody can carry anything since you need both hands to avoid a crash. Maybe a backpack, but that might upset your balance for some people. One picture shows some very elderly people eyeing the birds and I really hope they aren’t tempted to ride them since they don’t look safe for older people especially. The Birds will not be the future of transportation in Berkshire County.
