What was once a ramshackle, burnt out Victorian warehouse is now the gigantic Village Underground gallery, complete with mural walls and artist studios inside tube train cars on the roof. Want to help turn it inside out with Kickstarter? As always, there’s schwag. Your money will take the exterior of the gallery “to the next level” by installing huge glass screens so canvases and la-a-a-arge format digital works and photographs can be exhibited in front of 1.5 million monthly passerby and passing commuters. Pledge $50 and you’ll get your name on a brick in there.
Zombies have really been on the up swing in the last couple of years, so its really no surprise that someone has finally made a Christopher Walken tribute video titled The Walken Dead.
Watch as zombies from all walks of life recite famous Walken one-liners and stumble around town, they get more and more weird. Personally, we think this is great. Even through the whole idea of impersonating Walken is kind of played out, its still entertaining and funny.
Talib Kweli stopped by Zuccotti Park last night to recite some poetry for the Occupy Wall Street crowd. The rapper and Black Star member ended the night by doing a mic check and declaring to the crowd, “This is the end game.”
The Matrix was an amazing movie, lets not even pretend like it wasnt, but seeing this montage makes me a little bit sad. I guess its like they say though, nothing is really original, and everything is a copy in one way or another. I mean, they even tried to say that Inception, the most original movie to come out in the last 10 years was a rip off of a Duck Tails episode from the 90s. Either way, this video can at least remind us that there really isnt anything as cool as a Kung Fu flick.
NYCs beloved Olek has done it again by bombing the Astor Place cube. Shes fresh off of her bombing of the Wall Street bull last winter, and it seems like she has no plans of letting up. I walked by the cube yesterday looking more colorful and amazing than I had ever seen, only to notice its been removed already. I dont get why city officials are so uptight about this kind of thing.
The Other F Word opens at Film Forum in November and it plans to show you how the pioneers from the Punk Rock era such as Rancid, NIN and Circle Jerks into such grown-up softies. With a large cast of “society’s ultimate anti-authoritarians” who now spend the profits of their once very popular bands on Barbies and little frilly things with hearts and skulls because all their dads were complete assholes, so they might as well shelf some of that bravado and make some kiddies happy.
Im sure at this point everyone has heard that Arrested is going to do a series of 10 shows leading into a feature film. Ben & Jerrys is now on board with a little promo of their own.
