Verily, Lou Reed And Laurie Anderson Did Preside Over Saturday’s Mermaid Parade At Coney Island


I will admit to being bummed out that their “chariot,” as it were, wasn’t more regal and elaborate — and that Lou himself seemed so nonplussed, though of course nonplussed is his thing — but all the same, here are your 2010 King Neptune and Queen Mermaid, living it up. Laurie, at least, seemed pretty jazzed — a convincing howl of joy at the tail-end of this. More pics here and here. Looks like Lou was better suited to all this than we thought.
