It’s a new year and there are tons of recently opened spots for food and alcohol consumption. Below is a list of places to try in 2011. Tuffet, a “cheese/meat/bar” owned by a Market Table alum, opened on New Years Eve. Now that we’ve got our hangovers (& desire to eat nothing but wheatgrass and […]

Last night, as the perfect treat to end the weekend, Himanshu Suri (@HEEMS) of Das Racist posted his remix of Katy Perry’s ubiquitous pop hit “Teenage Dream.” It’s no cast of Glee rendition. And for that I am eternally grateful. In place of the sugar-high original, the Heems version of this track is way slowed […]
Head on over to Habitat in Greenpoint today for their 3rd Annual Chili Cookoff, where ten chefs chosen at random will compete to see who can make the best damn chili. We spoke with one of the cooks, Michael Glennon, to see how he’s prepping for the big competition.Interview after the jump. 3rd Annual Chili […]
After about a year of hibernation, Charlie Looker’s Extra Life is back. Now a three piece, the trio sounds more fierce than ever before. A sold out Silent Barn got a taste of it last night. Below is the first song of Extra Life’s set as well as a clip of opener Buke and Gass.
I’ve been speaking with some Islamic hackers operating out of Pakistan and the UK these past few days for an upcoming piece, and asked what they listen to while wired-in on a hack–for color, and all.

What stands out about Bictor and Chon and their fake but somehow super-real band Total Ghost is the sincerity that seeps through the cracks of the jokes. When […]
I hope you didn’t think the holidays were over yet. This Sunday is the 14th annual Three Kings Day Parade. January 6 is the Feast of the Epiphany, the holiday marking the arrival of the three wise men to visit the holy family, and the revelation to the Gentiles that the little kid in the […]
From Behold The Destroyer: In 1985, a rather unremarkable adult movie was released titled Sex Crimes 2084 — it was vaguely based on George Orwell’s 1984. While the book was about a state controlling its citizens through extreme measures and the nature of personal freedom, the movie was about people fucking. It wasn’t about people fucking in the […]
I interviewed the Humanimal for Vice: If you’re one of the few who saw Guy Ritchie’s latest film, RocknRolla, you may recall a scene where a Chechnyan thug chases Gerard Butler through a tunnel. The pursuer in question is a strikingly buff 34-year-old Russian-born Londoner named Alex Kovas, a model/actor who may be more familiar […]
