Crossing Brooklyn Ferry @ BAM

If the words Crossing Brooklyn Ferry were thrown into a friendly conversation, many would think of the timeless Whitman poem that illuminated a common human condition through the guise of a ferry trip. But Aaron and Bryce Dessner’s recent collaboration with the Brooklyn Academy of Music in a three-night independent music festival has birthed a fresh new meaning for that three-word title, this time bringing to mind a communal music experience within... Read More

Jonas Mekas Fascination at Edwynn Houk Gallery

Jonas Mekas, an irreplaceable corner stone for much of the US film industry today, now recounts the compelling stories of his life and work in his own words at Edwynn Houk, 745 5th AveNew York, NY. It seems odd that a gallery will dedicate itself to allowing one person a moment to talk about their  life.  In a capitalist framework, it is a bizarre notion, but as lives go, Mekas’, for one, is quite remarkable. Born in Lithuania in 1922, Mekas... Read More

Shia LaBeouf’s “Maniac” (NSFW)

Recently, Shia LaBeouf released this short film starring Scott Mescudi (Kid Cudi) and Chris Palko, which is a fictional shockumentary following two serial killers who speak French in what seems to be Ohio. Given the names and the description, it might sound ridiculous… but it’s definitely worth a watch, especially if you like slasher films. It’s also scored by Cudi and Dot Da Genius, whose Dick Dale-style horror noises are probably... Read More
