New Faile Show 

Faile & Bast’s Deluxx Fluxx comes to NYC

Deluxx Fluxx

158 Allen St. New York, NY
Opening Reception: April 30th 7:30-10:30pm

Originally conceived as a one-off project in London, Deluxx Fluxx allowed Faile and Bast to indulge nostalgia for the classic video arcade while exploring the tactile possibilities of the wooden cabinet as sculptural medium. In its New York incarnation, the retrofitted machines run new games by Adapted Studio based on Faile and Bast’s omnivorous visual language, with sounds produced by Seth Jabour of the noted band Les Savy Fav.

FAIL...marks the spot! 

For all you iphones users out there and I know there's a lot of us, ATT has a new app called "Mark the Spot." It basically allows you to let ATT know when it sucks. I don't know how much of an impact this will really have, but I know there are times when I am frustrated with my phone and want to yell at someone.

Black Lips officially RUINED for me... 

Some of you may know that a fight went down at our local watering hole on Friday night. Normally I could care to shits, but the statement released by Jared Swilley of the Black Lips makes my stomach turn and really just makes him look like a complete bigoted asshole, not to mention a good band look bad. Here's the statement. via brooklyn vegan

Kind of a Big Deal 

Sure, it's sacrilegious in Williamsburg but damn those bodegas on the south side blow people. Opens this Saturday on Kent Ave.



Interesting piece on Spike Jonze in the NY Times Magazine last weekend. Longish but well worth the read. Dying in anticipation for October 16th.

and this snippet came out too

Waiting For Something 

Granted not much actually happens per se, but it's still cool to see one of indie rocks most unique characters, Jay Reatard, kick it Memphis-style in this short documentary .

Fuck Tribeca 

The Jac O film festival is officially on. Love it. When's the next screening?

The Black Terry 

This is kinda late but this shoot for Vice with my man Geno Sims, planner/huslter extraordinaire is hilarious.

tonight at the pit... 

...You get laid!

Some of you may or may not know Jenny and Shanon. They have been working on a pilot for their new sitcom for the past few months (no joke). They're like the real life version of Patsy and Edina from Ab Fab, but a little more twisted. Anyways, they've been fleshing out a lot of their ideas for the show on their new blog "Tonight at the Pit." Dare I say its almost as funny a Dlisted.

my week. 

the new beastie boys album cover.

scariest bottle opener.

andrew had his third annual scavenger hunt birthday party. this body shot attempt may not have counted, but our limerick sure the hell did.

here's truman, an 85-pound golden retriever that i sometimes watch. he was our team mvp, and he's certainly our pet of the week.

as seen in previous posts, nate launched his imfromdriftwood.com site, so we decided to throw a surprise party for him.

thanks everybody for helping to get the party together. nate wouldn't have been more surprised if he had woken up in the morning with his head sewn to the carpet.

pat was on a national tour for several weeks with the flatlanders, and last month they played a gig at bb king's. he's got some great stories about being on a bus every day with six other guys, and he says they've all bonded and become really close.

stallions and pussies.

c'mon, mason. have a heart.

check out the pipes.

the new 'hang-me elmo' toy.

aw, look how cute! that condom wrapper has a heart on it.

an email does make a difference 

Danny sez, "Blogger Julie of TangoBaby was walking past a begging homeless woman, K, and her two kids in San Francisco, agonising about how she couldn't do anything to help -- when she realised she could. She wrote up the story of the family, took photos, and started telling their story on her blog. Now she's working with her readers to get a fair deal for K in SF's bureacratic system for handling the homeless in the city, and recording the troubles and opportunities they're having on the way."

We talked, and I learned her name was K. and asked her about the shelters in town. She rattled off the names of homes that I know are where abused women and children escape to when their lives are in danger.

None of the shelters had rooms for her and her children.

Then it dawned on me that maybe I could do more than give her $30 and hope someone else gives her another $30 so the young family can find a place to sleep tonight. I asked her if we could share her photos and her story so that somewhere, some of you might be able to help.

K's eyes are perpetually brimming with tears. She's tiny and her hands are chilled. Baby M is sleeping under a blanket on her chest. The two younger children, D and Little K, are relatively quiet considering their ages. At 7 and 9, they could be tearing up the sidewalks, but they're not.

When I explain to K about my blog and that I hope that maybe someone out there reading might have a way to help, she thinks it's a good idea and says it's okay to take the pictures. "It can't be any more embarrassing than what I'm doing now," she says.

My boy Lamb made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon the other night to set a world record. So dumb it's amazing.


Where The Wild Things Are 

The amazing trailer to the Spike Jonze film.

And a great article on the children's book author, Maurice Sendak.



Sorry, I know I should probably be posting about amazing acts I saw at SXSW but I just watched this video and this kid made me wish I was this articulate when I was 17 years old.



my week. *sxsw absentee edition* 

i'm going to try and get back on my regular schedule of 'my week' mondays, and before osman floods us with sxsw stories and photos, i'm gonna slip in a posting real quick. i had some leftover yen in my pocket from my last trip to mccarren park, so on wednesday i went down to the financial district to exchange it. this is the church just east of ground zero. in the background is one liberty street plaza, the building that i worked in cleaning computers in the months following 9-11. and that's another story altogether.

what are 'alcohol drugs'? and how are they destroying my life? follow jesus? read the bible? um...according to the bible, jesus miraculously made alcohol out of water. so aren't you sending mixed signals, pal? get your shit out of my face. i've got yen to exchange for american dollars. which i'm going to spend on more alcohol drugs. oh god, my life....

damien had a birthday on wednesday night, and since everyone skipped town for sxsw, no one showed up. :(

well, rafi showed up. and nate. and me. but sans pans. geezus. i thought i swore to myself (you all) that i (you all) would never see me in my underwear on this blog again. man. the things i wouldn't do for a laugh (free drink).

ooooooh, i see. well that explains all the hasids. jerusalem is the new williamsburg.

open caption contest:

see, jacquie and elisa? sherrod DOES exist. and on saturday, he showed up to damien's birthday party...at sugarland. hmm, i'm not helping my cause.

this guy needs to cheer up.

yesterday i was down under the manhattan bridge overpass.

and with stickers like this floating around, i don't know that i would take my kid to any dumbo playgrounds...

whatever, i'm sure all the riff-raff are behind bars...
