good afternoon all

i am wondering if beacon has ever had a cinema? does anyone know

i really think that a cool cinema like the alamo drafthouse in austin, tx, would be SO cool here, and i think that it could prosper over time...i believe that there are enough eclectic, artistic, and film afficionados in the hudson valley that a cinema like that would be successful

for anyone unfamiliar with the alamo drafthouse, google it and look for the types of films and exciting special… Continue

In dire need of any work!

Hello all my fellow beacon citizens!

If anyone has any information on PT or FT work, it doesn't matter what it is, then PLEASE let me know. I really need some help or I will be evicted and have to leave Beacon.

Need help from some peoples

Good day all!

I am needing some volunteers...

I need anyone that has spare time to contact me and sit or pose for me

I am starting a new series of paintings and I need some cheesy yearbook style headshots

I can meet anywhere or you can come meet me

I do not believe it would take much time at all, just enough for a quick digital headshot

This would all be incredibly helpful to me, and after completing the initial stage I plan to have them in an art gallery in… Continue

wesley, so sorry I didn't get in touch with you -- it's been a crazy week and as it turned out I couldn't get back from working in the city until nearly 9. I'm sorry for missing it. how did everything go?

Hi Wesley,
I've started a Drawing Group on Beaconite, to help get a weekly group with a live model going. Please join.

yeah, it takes some time...when i first moved here my boyfriend and i would literally sit in our apartment drinking too much beer and plotting how we could make friends - this was clearly before the beacon citizen network! next time I have a party you're invited... i'll keep my eye out for a hobo cat, but hopefully he'll start providing soon.

That would be Keith's shop...know it well.
I'm curious to see the type of pumpkin "carving" that'll be going on there.

Hi Wesley,
Welcome to Beacon!
from the looks of it, you aren't having any trouble meeting people in our friendly little Beacon.
The weekend is coming and that's the best time to meet folks around here.
Walking around, drinking coffee, looking at art and don't forget the pumpkin festival.
I'll flag you down if I see you...

This is certainly an awkward way to correspond, W. May I know your phone number or email address?
