Over the past few weeks, MTV has been airing endless commercials to remind us that it’s not all about The City; that’s right it’s about Brooklyn too. Move over Laguna, forget those hills, and fake fashion jobs, this is about what happens when people stop being polite and start getting REAL. Really? Sort of.
As Real World Brooklyn begins, the cast meets up in various locations all over New York (the Coney Island Boardwalk, on a water taxi…) to converge upon their Red Hook warehouse. In New York, would that be an 8 bedroom converted? As we are introduced to each member through their audition videos they set themselves into two categories: “They seem like a really cool person I can just chill with…” and “I know they’re hiding something.”
We first saw Alexandre Farto’s (Vhils) work in person at the Outsiders show last fall in NYC. To say the least, we were impressed. So it is with excitement that we can tell you that this Friday he has his first solo show, even if you win the rat race you’re still a rat, opening at Vera Cortes in Lisbon, Portugal. After the jump, a couple more images and a roughly google translated press release
Sarah Kane – Skin – 1995
Check this out, NSFW, but it is a really great short film. Her only film for TV, it originally aired on the BBC and was reviewed as “One of the most violent and racially offensive programmes ever to be made for television in this country.” Despite this, director Vincent O’Connell was nominated for a Golden Bear award for the film at the 1996 Berlin International Film Festival.
Morrissey will be performing in NYC in March. The tickets will be on sale this Friday for the Bowery Ballroom show on March 21st. He is also playing March 16th at The Wellmont Theatre, March 25th at Webster Hall, and March 26th at Carnegie Hall. One of my favorite “newish” bands, The Courteeners, are opening up. Pssst… The are $75 bucks. Damn that’s a lot, but it’s a really small venue and one of the best places in NYC to see shows.
Toy Camera is one of the best app’s on the iphone if you’re into photography. Basically, it turns your so-so camera on the iphone into a “lomo-esque” Toy camera. You do not have control over the effects it applies but, it makes your bad photos look good. It’s the 1970′s all over again and the best $1.99 I have spent.
It was only a matter of time…Isn’t there something about the oncoming apocalypse in regards to the worship of false idols and the rise of the antichrist?
“Going on sale January 12th at JailbreakToys.com, the 3,000 limited edition figures will undoubtedly sell out quickly. The 6” figures have eight points of articulation and are numbered and packaged in an illustrated window box.”
Just exactly where do you wear one of these? Brooklyn based store Oak has a new site and some new gear on sale now. Rachel Comey Black Metallic romper. Let’s just say the photography sells the fashion.
The first 1000 are signed and numbered and sold out. Numbers 1001 – 9999 are only numbered and $100. Pretty cool looking with the Capitol Building and The White House and Obama and the Inaugural Seal and the ‘V’ for Victory… Maybe all of the money generated from this can go to a People’s Bailout?
