The Golem

A group of Jews create a Golem to fight the Williamsburg hipsters in this video by Stephen Levinson and Jason Reich, starring Jonathan Katz. The Golem’s really funny! And as Curbed notes, “Trustafarians, golems and gentrification gags are all accounted for” in this book trailer for The Jewish Body.

GIRL TALK Waterfront Party Pics 8/23/09

Girl Talk
Though the concert itself was amazing, it was the fun people of the crowd who made the event so epic. By far the largest Pool Party of the season. There were so many people on stage during Girl Talk, the stage actually collapsed. (Thankfully no one was injured as far as we know). Halfway through Girl Talk’s set, a light rain began to fall. It was a welcome sight given the heat and sweaty bodies.
This was our favorite overheard pool party conversation: ‘is Girl Talk really rocking a Dell? Fuck that. This is bullshit.’
We also loved this tweet via @saveassistants: Girl Talk was awesome, but watching ppl arrested for climbing over port-a-potties to sneak into a free concert was better’
We hope you didn’t miss it. This was the biggest and best party of the summer.
Next week, Grizzly Bear and Beach House.
