About

This is a blog centered around life at Vox Pop Cafe in Brooklyn, NY. The initial slogan for the cafe is Coffee. Books. Democracy. It is a place for music, poetry, readings, parties, moms to meet, knitters to knit, book releases, politicians meeting the community, art shows and just about anything anyone can come up with that may go well with coffee and goodies.

My name is Bruce Zeines and I am the administrator, and head writer. I have been or currently engaged in art, graphic design, photo retouching, fingerstyle acoustic guitar, education reform activist, parent (3x) and I am involved in a host of community and spiritually based activity. I ride a bike on occasion, don’t own a car anymore, and am seen often hanging out with my son and wife at Vox Pop.

The main purpose of my blog is to document the people I meet there as well as posting up any other stuff Debi Ryan might pass on to me. Basically, whatever is written here, is from my lips to my fingers to the page and remains my responsability, unless It is from someone else. Then I will just throw my hands up in the air and say “what the heck!”

    Hi Vox Poppers!
    My name is Eric, I live over on Westminster. I’m a big fan of Vox Pop and thought you guys might like this project I’m doing. This September, I’m riding by bike across America for a year. I’m going to be meeting people, collecting stories of the recession and drawing the entire adventure.

    I want to make a book/compilation of portraits of what America(na) is like right now. I started a blog/fb page here>>

    I’m only accepting money from individuals and small businesses, and non-profits. No corporate sponsors wanted. So I can use all the support I can get. If you send me $5, I’ll mail you a hand-drawn postcard from the road! Or, if you know someone along the way who will let me camp in their yard and has an interesting story, I’ll draw their picture!

    You can find out more about supporting my trip at this kickstarter page >>

    I’d love it if you guys could make a post/link me on your site, I’d love to keep my Ditmas Park family up to date!

    Yours truly,
    Eric Clausen

      Dear Benedict

      As you might know, Vox Pop is closed. The Statue of Liberty was auctioned off by the state and was carried away by nasty man in a truck.

      I intend to write an article about the closing and what Vox Pop was for me. After that, there will be no more blog posts on this site unless some miracle is produced. Good luck with your project though. It sounds great.
