Personally, I can't wait for the next update. I so resonate with
"I'm so innately anti-authority, I have a hard time even following a recipe". And I totally agree with "For me, sex is best when it revolves around non-verbal social clues. I like the art and the mystery of reading body language. Someone touches my arm, someone looks me in the eye from across the room — do they want to fuck me? For me, the thrill of interpreting subtext is as powerful as the act of sex itself. The uncertainty of looks and whispers excites me as much as physical foreplay." Really well said. I have never been able to put my finger on why sex clubs often leave me cold - as I am a pretty uninhibited, sex-positive kind of gal- but I think you've given me great insight. I'm not interested in sex for sex sake - I want chemistry and intrigue and some personal connection. But very curious how the next play parties turn out!
it sounds like you are the wrong pussycat to be covering this gig. too shy, too full of fears. you have to be open to all senses, completely uninhibited, and if fear rules your heart, then willing to cast it by the way side and surrender all senses and your mind and body to pleasure. ecstasy comes, but only to those who leap into the unknown.

Hahahaha...I need some cool
Great recap of 2012! Wanted to call out the 5th Year for Brooklyn Studio Tours for 2013. It ran the Bay Ridge tour last year and are currently focusing on the 9th running artwalk in Red Hook & Carroll Gardens June 1 & 2, 2013. More info can be found on http://brooklynstudiotours.com
We would love to cross promote the other tours happening this year as well! Hoping all are smashing successes!
Alvino you are right but what should we do to avoid Samsung or Monkeys?
I need just perfect cooling:
I was at the Breeders show. It was completely awesome. There was no ghoulishness to speak of. It was really fascinating and fun to see how that complex, weird long-player all fits together. Pedals, tiny amps, different guitars, gigantic Hawaiian wind chimes, violin, distorted harmonica microphone. It was rad. The Breeders are a breath of fresh air in these culturally toxic times, whether they're playing new stuff or old.
Go back to your commune, hippie.
Miss Iverson - please checkout a couple of episodes of Roseanne and tell me that "Girls" is the first program to breakaway from female stereotypes. Dunham is wonderful, but I look at "Girls" as the next generation's version of "Sex in the City". Eventually The Onion will gourd your ox and it's up to the reader to decide if the humor is juvenile, or you're taking yourself too seriously.
I'm going with #5. (No, not the Dice man, if you're counting down.)
The only sure thing is that it will be an absolute traffic shitshow.
This article would be poignant if it were written in 199... no,you know what it would never be poignant, just lame and what we've decided to call journalism now
What? You mean the sequence of Adam running shirtless across town to rescue Hannah in the last episode didn't make this list?
This is the mother of the young man that was found hanging. I'm so sorry for the man who found our son, that is something you'll never forget. He was a great kid (24 years of age ) just graduated from u of Chicago taught himself to play classical piano. Never was in any trouble, never used drugs he did smoke pot on occasion. No one knows why, there was no warning nor a note. He loved living in Brooklyn and a great job on Wall Street. And we will miss him forever. Thanks for all who cared
This movie sucked so bad
Pino Boresta vivrà. Nuova performance-blitz dell’artista romano durante la conferenza stampa della Biennale. L’outsider per eccellenza rivendica ancora una volta la propria esistenza
“I don’t give up”, urla a pieni polmoni Pino Boresta. E se c’è qualcosa che va riconosciuto all’artista romano, insieme a una rara genuinità, sono la tenacia e la convinzione con cui porta avanti la sua ricerca, da almeno un paio di decadi. Performer, situazionista (o “situazionauta” come ama definirsi), oltre che street artist ante litteram, Boresta è sbucato fuori dal pubblico della conferenza stampa della Biennale di Venezia, ieri a Roma, al grido di “Io vivrò”.
Dopo aver provocatoriamente annunciato, con email, post su forum e pubblicità sui giornali, che si sarebbe tolto la vita se Gioni non l’avesse invitato alla mostra, ha invece a sorpresa deciso di riaffermare con forza la propria esistenza, la propria condizione di outsider, di irregolare, di allegro e consapevole disturbatore. La performance, interrotta dal servizio d’ordine come ogni blitz che si rispetti, si è chiusa con un forte applauso, mentre Paolo Baratta, presidente della Biennale, riprendeva la parola dicendo a Massimiliano Gioni: “pensavo fosse una delle tue trovate”…
Qui ii video:
Wow- Nailed it. I never thought of skiing more cheaply before. That solves all my problems!
For my money, "The Pink Room" and "Bookhouse Boys" trump all of these. But it's one man's opinion.
The Onion wasn't belittling feminism. It was pointing out the absurdity of Girls trying to suggest that naive, infantile, narcissistic behavior is normal because it's acted out by a person who has an average looking body. Hannah, the character, is not normal. The actor playing her may have a "real body" but it's a mistake to assume she is a real girl.
The characters on that show play into young women's identity fantasies (which are not limited to women alone), into the self-aggrandizing, hyperbolic worldview that everybody and everything is high drama and borderline surreal, that every event has to be as intense as the well-edited narratives we see on reality TV. That's the brilliance of Leah Dunhams writing - she's conviced girls who believe they're more than average that the girls on Girls are regular girls. That's what the Onion was calling out.
Please check out the teaser for a new web series that I think will appeal to my fellow Lena Dunham fans. "Anna Danova" is about a neurotic indie musician awkwardly negotiating her way through a relationship one misstep at a time. She finds her footing by breaking into overly truthful songs in inappropriate moments. Please watch the teaser and share:
"But what it's parodying here is a female artist's ability to express herself without fitting into the pervasive stereotype of what a young woman should be. And that is the kind of juvenile humor that I thought was beneath the Onion. I guess not."
That "Onion" headline encapsulates the show brilliantly, unlike picking apart random Dunham quotes and acting like she is super interesting. I wouldn't ask Lena Dunham what her opinion on juvenile humor actually is, since it's clear that both the author and the woman herself don't understand it when they see it.
There is a huge difference between the ability to express oneself without fitting into stereotypes and creating a character stereotypical of Brooklyn hipsters. She's not creating a bold genre, she's creatively being a bold, naked joke.
