  The Bicycle Film Festival is returning this week and it is going to be quite the party with films, music performances and art exhibits, oh my! Tomorrow is opening night and it's being kicked off with a performance from Hungry March Band in the Sarah D. Roosevelt Park at 6 (yeah, they're the guys who played in the ocean at last year's Mermaid Parade , which is also this weekend).Or you can head over to South Street Seaport for a free show featuring the The Teenagers and The John Spencer Blues Explosion.

Need a mid-june feminist booster shot? Get those creative wheels turning and your blood pumping with the Brooklyn Museum's Reflections on the Electric Mirror: New Feminist Video exhibition .

She discusses her start in film, how hard it is to become an established female filmmaker, and the film's two stars and sisters, Vali and Mimi (pictured below). Q: I understand you're from Brooklyn; did you always live there? A: No, though I'm not leaving anytime soon! I'm a New York transplant, via Boston, Budapest and Nantucket. Read More

Crazy/Beautiful...not

 Nerve.com has gone where no Top 20 list has gone before. The editors have recently compiled a list of 'The Twenty Sexiest Ugly People' they could conjure up from their collective pop culture memories. Are you thinking who they're thinking? Marilyn Manson? Woody Allen? Courtney Love? Who would you add to the list and who's misunderstood? Okay, you're thinking 'this is just mean,' but trust us, the list is more honest and funny than critical. Tell me if you disagree. If Tilda Swinton's face appeared at your bedroom window one night, wouldn't you scream?  ~Hannah P.S. Read More
