“STAGS Gone”Is Being Watched

2 May

Bambuser, a very interesting live video streaming broadcast network, was used in place of Veetle, when Veetle failed to connect to the web. While not spectacular, those Alumni who went to St. Agnes Boys High School, in the East 44th Street, East 33rd Street and West 87th Street Iterations of The High School, are now watching Bambuser via Facebook on the St. Agnes Boys High School page.

Viewership is growing nicely. I wonder just how well the coverage would be watched on Ustream.tv?

But, in this case, smaller is better. Another Video on Vimeo is in HD 720p. It entails the neighborhood around East 44 & East 43 Street and 3rd Avenue, in Midtown Manhattan. This is the area where the great majority of St Agnes Alumni went to the School.

Currently, The Parish Church of St. Agnes, is Home to a Burgeoning, Youthful, Tridentine Latin Mass Crowd. The Parish is 141 Years of Age & rocks to the hauntingly Beautiful Beat of Gregorian Chant.

Another Closing 1 Year Ago

24 Apr

Let me say that moving away from one’s “Fan Base” is not a good idea at all. The High School which did this in 1993, St. Agnes Boys High School, a Marist Brothers Institution which was part of the Parish of St. Agnes on East 43rd Street in Midtown Manhattan, used to have a huge Brooklyn-Queens “Fan Base.” But this changed with the Move to W. 87th Street and West End Avenue, on the Upper West Side, where this would make St. Agnes Boys High School a Manhattan and Bronx School. This lasted for 20 Years.
But, one wonders about the W87th Street Move. Was this about a bigger building for expansion, or was it about a fallback in case of a school failing financially?
I will be heading uptown tomorrow or Friday to do a Live Report of what is going on at the Old School Site.  It will be posted to Facebook and fed to the St. Agnes Boys High School Page. It will be live on either Veetle or Bambuser.  It should be interesting.

STAGS Forever!
