For Hobo Travelers and Wacky Marriages

hobo marriage boat

this was the empty vessel, it was bought for one dollar and currently resides somewhere in Brooklyn

an arts space/educational environment/screening locale… really we just want to hold alternative weddings on our roof…We are changing her name so that she isn’t mistaken for the Empty Vessel Project and it’s specific goals/intentions/owners. But we still don’t have a proper name, perhaps we’ll hold a boat naming contest. Currently we’re more concerned with running a capable heating system before we move aboard.

Rising Sea Levels Claim Populated Island

From our green blog:


Rising seas, caused by global warming, have for the first time washed an inhabited island off the face of the Earth. The obliteration of Lohachara island, in India’s part of the Sundarbans where the Ganges and the Brahmaputra rivers empty into the Bay of Bengal, marks the moment when one of the most apocalyptic predictions of environmentalists and climate scientists has started coming true.

Eight years ago, as exclusively reported in The Independent on Sunday, the first uninhabited islands - in the Pacific atoll nation of Kiribati - vanished beneath the waves. The people of low-lying islands in Vanuatu, also in the Pacific, have been evacuated as a precaution, but the land still juts above the sea. The disappearance of Lohachara, once home to 10,000 people, is unprecedented.

It has been officially recorded in a six-year study of the Sunderbans by researchers at Calcutta’s Jadavpur University. So remote is the island that the researchers first learned of its submergence, and that of an uninhabited neighbouring island, Suparibhanga, when they saw they had vanished from satellite pictures.
