Film to look out for ...

Ten years in the making and culled from 5000 hours of footage, WE LIVE IN PUBLIC reveals the effect the web is having on our society, as seen through the eyes of “the greatest Internet pioneer you’ve never heard of”, artist, futurist and visionary Josh Harris. Award-winning director  Ondi Timoner (DIG! -- which also won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 2004 -- making Timoner the only director to win that prestigious award twice) documented his tumultuous life for more than a decade to create a riveting, cautionary tale of what to expect as the virtual world inevitably takes control of our lives.

Harris, often called the “Warhol of the Web”, founded, the first Internet television network during the infamous dot-com boom of the 1990s. He also curated and funded the ground breaking project “Quiet” in an underground bunker in NYC where over 100 people lived together on camera for 30 days at the turn of the millennium. With Quiet, Harris proved how we willingly trade our privacy for the connection and recognition we all deeply desire, but with every technological advancement such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter, becomes more elusive. Through his experiments, including a six-month stint living with his girlfriend under 24-hour electronic surveillance which led to his mental collapse, Harris demonstrated the price we pay for living in public.

NYC Recess @ Governors Island

After the epic badminton showdown at GOVERNORS ISLAND with TRETORN last month, RECESS is back this SATURDAY AUGUST 22ND at COLONELS ROW from 12PM - 5PM, this time with a SANDPAPER PADDLE TABLE TENNIS challenge with PUMA, the true originals in the ping pong explosion (as it is affectionately known). The game itself is currently going through a renaissance in the US but for the RECESS showdown, we've decided to put a little twist on the game, a sandpaper version that will even the playing field, and more co-ed friendly. While 32 various teams from the creative community battle their way to the finals, there will also be open public tables to test your skill at the sport, paddles provided. LEGAMIN and VAN LEEUWEN ICE CREAM trucks, as well as FUNCTION DRINKS are back for food and refreshments to keep everyone hydrated and well fed. We've even got mini tables, frisbees and kites to keep the young ones entertained. And while you're out on the island, take a spin on the highly coveted series of PUMA BIOMEGA BIKES and test ride them, we promise it's going to change the way you feel about urban transportation! The crew from NO ORDINARY MONKEY will be on the musical decks.

The free ferry leaves the BATTERY MARITIME BUILDING in Lower Manhattan at 11am and every half hour after that. So don't miss out on all the action!

500 Days of Summer

I checked out the film 500 Days of Summer and its by far one of my favorite films this summer. Finally a MODERN DAY love story that is of course NOT a love story ;-)

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! funny, quirky, artistic, and a worthy playlist of tunes.


from the site...

New site specific works from Berlin, Germany on the BERLIN WALL. This year marks the 20 year anniversary of the BERLIN WALL falling! Enjoy the symbolism, irony, and gesture of unity from the extending arm reaching through the hole in the wall offering flowers to the other side "Bridging The Divide" between the East and West side of Berlin.

Future Me

My friend Natalie Blacker recommended this site FUTURE ME and although I've yet to try the site it definitely seems like an amazing concept!

FUTURE ME allows you to email yourself any date up to 30 years in the future. Better yet, you can write future e-mails to others if your a registered users. Essentially an on-line time capsule of sorts. Check it out!
