Artist and designer Mike Perry opted to celebrate the release of his monograph Wondering Around Wandering in a non-traditional way: instead of a standard launch party, Perry created a pop-up exhibition of the same name in his Brooklyn neighborhood.

As with all good things, Wondering Around ... Read More

It's Election Day! And everyone is really, really tense. I'm no exception: just the other day, an acquaintance mentioned that she really doesn't care who wins, and instead of engaging said person in thoughtful dialogue, I yelled ROE VERSUS WADE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD and burst into tears.
So ANYWAY! Supreme Crafty Lady Callie discovered this gem yesterday and it had us all ROFLcoptering around the office. I don't know how to explain it, and to be honest, I don't even ... Read More

What with the street style bloggers crawling over every corner of the Internet, it seems as though the next-level creeping was bound to happen eventually.
This latest incarnation of style stalking is through a camera linked to the Internet, uploading shots of passerby in real time from, naturally, Brooklyn, New York. The camera snapping shots of passers-by is located along Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue, and is motion activated, so anyone and everyone walking ... Read More

It’s not often that at a concert, the artist encourages you to take photos and film the performance, but that’s exactly what David Byrne did at his recent show in Brooklyn.
Though the Talking Heads frontman, who teamed up with St. Vincent for his latest release, Love This Giant, announced right before going on stage that he didn’t mind people using their phones to take a picture or two, he wasn’t interested in seeing any iPads waving ... Read More

You know how it goes. It’s that trite rom-com cliché that’s been done over and over again: a guy likes a girl who sees him as just a “friend.” This guy is usually the one that treats the girl right, listens to her, let’s her know how wonderful she truly is, despite how the world has mistreated her, blah blah blah. And then he gets pissed when she doesn’t want to bone him.
Really? Like, you two were FRIENDS! ... Read More
