NYU: lighting justice on fire since 1831. We made it, y’all.
(From former Local editor Rosie Gray: NYU Denies Booting Chinese Dissident)
I wish John Sexton would actually walk around with a paper printout of the NYU logo taped to his chest.
Today is National Bourbon Day.
Ladies and gentlemen, Zac Pennington.
don’t even step to that south pole squad, son
An NYC Resistor’s project turned a Minitel into a Tumblr Time Tunnel.
Pssst: they have an interactive show this weekend.
holy shit this rules so hard
The mighty Double Dagger asked to use one of my photos for the layout of their final EP. Which means that I can finally cross “be thanked in the liner notes of a hardcore record” off of my bucket list.
Me on Google Street View, eating a massive ice cream cone outside of the D.C. Shake Shack. Big shoutout to the homie Andy Lomeli (a.k.a. “Shake Shack Chair Dude”) for spotting this.
Deth P. Sun, one of my favorite visual artists (and one of Tumblr’s as well), is currently showing a ton of new work at Grumpy Bert in Boerum Hill. This is his first NYC solo show in years, so if melancholic paintings of skeletons, cats and ghosts floating in space sounds like your idea of a good time, you will want to get down to Grumpy Bert before June 30th.
First pool day of 2013!!!
If you live in Brooklyn, keep your eyes peeled for my dude Darren rolling into your hood with this inspired contraption. From their Tumblr:
The mobile pool party brings together crazy bicycle hackery, blistery hot Brooklyn afternoons, and watery fun. We’ll be rolling into various Brooklyn neighborhoods, firing up the jambox & BBQ, and inviting passersby to join us for a dip, a dog, or just to hang out and enjoy the breeze.
The mobile pool can be filled up in a matter of minutes via a connection to a city fire hydrant. Basically, they are taking the old Brooklyn summer tradition of commandeering fire hydrants to the next level.
Really hope this is Jack Dorsey’s whip.
