The "Liquid Sky" Sequel Is Coming: A Chat With The Director Of The Best Film About New York

A terrific update to this interview: After publication, director Slava Tsukerman clarified that, in Liquid Sky 2, the brilliant Anne Carlisle will return in the role of Margaret.

Liquid Sky is one of the most visually ambitious films ever made about fashion, heroin, New Wave clubs, UFO saucers, ordering Chinese food and having them put it on your tab, the Empire State Building, androgyny, neon and tin foil. The 1982 cult classic may be the perfect embodiment of camp. Unlike contemporary low-budget cinema, which prizes an aesthetic of apathy, Liquid Sky makes its efforts visible. Judgmental fashion reporters cackle straight into the camera. Catwalk scenes take place [...]


This Is the Most Unpleasant Thing You'll Ever Listen To (I Hope)

This is what it sounds like when the doves drill in the sidewalk outside. (iTunes)


Edith Zimmerman on Chris Evans and the Gutters of L.A.

In the vast backseat, Chris was even more flirtatious than before, touching my arm and my knee. At this point, which was a… number of drinks in, it was easy to forget that it really was an interview, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't cross my mind that something might happen (and that we'd go to the Oscars and get married and have babies forever until we died?). But there was always the question of how much of it was truly Chris Evans, and whom I should pretend to be in response.

—Oh my! To say that "hijinks ensue" with The Hairpin editor Edith [...]


Another Poisoned Cruise Barf Boat!

"Bring Back Bloomberg"! Rich Horrorshows Freak Out Over Fake Snowstorm Class War In Pinhead Rag

Where are the plows @BilldeBlasio ??? @kallos ???? @newyorkpost No Plows uptown!

— MollyJongFast (@MollyJongFast) January 21, 2014

Yesterday afternoon, vicious short-sighted monsterpieces went howling to the worst piece of paper on the whole east coast, like the crazy petulant vampire-children they apparently are:

“I can’t believe de Blasio could do this. He is putting everyone in danger,” said Barbara Tamerin, who was using ski poles to get around 81st Street and Lexington Avenue.

“What is he thinking? We’re supposed to get up to a foot of snow and nobody on the Upper East Side is supposed to blink an eye? I can barely [...]


Tumblr Monetizes! Troll Away!

A wonderful new feature on Tumblr means that you can destroy peoples' lives! For just $5, you can "pin" something to people's "dashboard," and these "pinned posts" don't go away until you "unpin" them. It's basically MADE for trolls. (Also, do you think people born after 1990 know what a pushpin is?)


In Case You Missed Last Night: Prince and Cee-Lo, "Crazy"

Today's reason to hate myself: for missing Prince play "Crazy" with his opening act Cee-Lo at Madison Square Garden last night. God, that guitar! (This video will disappear soon too, because Prince, copyright, etc. Which is funny, since this isn't even his song!)


Unemployed Unlikely To Be Hired

Oh my God, I'm going to have a stroke: "many employers are bypassing the jobless to target those still working, reasoning that these survivors are the top performers."


The Internet Ended With A Cat Slideshow And No One Noticed

Here, at "Shine from Yahoo!," you will find the most amazing use of the Internet.

It is a slideshow. It is a slideshow about cats. It lists the "10 most popular kitten names." From whence does this data come? "We culled our records and came up with the a [sic] current list of the 10 most popular cat names." So, did I mention it's a slideshow? The pictures in the slideshow are just OF RANDOM CATS. Not even actual cats who have those allegedly "most popular names." NOT EVEN CATS WHO ARE UP FOR ADOPTION OR ANYTHING. Not even very GOOD cats. Just plain cats.

The slideshow also [...]


Local Paper Has to Tell Today's Parents to Brush Their Kids' Teeth

"I had a lot on my mind, and brushing his teeth was an extra thing I didn’t think about at night." —How are you going to write little Carthage and Chanterelle's college essays for them if you can't even bring yourself to brush their teeth?


Must-Reads: "The AOL Way" (To Create Spam Labor Camps)

If you work on the web, freelance on the web, or have any interest in business on the web, you absolutely must read the astonishing AOL plan and guide to "content" that was obtained by Nicholas Carlson at Business Insider. Obviously, they are increasing pageviews, amount of "content" published, while decreasing the amount paid for content. That's because that's how corporations work. Warning: reading this will be rough going, as it is full of jargon and b.s. and corporate blah blah, but the thing has rewards on every page. (I mean, yes: "Benadryl for Dogs" cost $15!) This is how it all really works! This is the real [...]
