Things, you can do them, or not. Oh my God it's so Internet week today. Robert Scoble is giving a talk! Here is a description of a panel! "From actors and musicians to writers and producers, the Internet has provided unprecedented opportunities for New York's creative class. A panel of content creators discusses how this powerful disruptive digital medium has helped jumpstart their businesses and accelerate their careers." POWERFUL, DISRUPTIVE, DIGITAL. #brands #social #digital #life
Tonight Julie Klausner and Chris Gethard talk about pathways to Lucrative Careers In Comedy. LOL, IT'S EASY. (JK it's not.) Oh there are other things to do too.
Renata Adler, Peter Sellars, Junot Diaz and Erykah Badu? Did you want something more out of a single day?
Eeek it's that day, it's Bring Your Tiny Animal To Work Day! (Also other things.)
Today in New York City: women discuss programming—cultural programming!—at Housing Works, dudes discuss Brecht at the 92Y, Nicole Krauss and André Aciman discuss assimilation and there's nice things to do for kids and for your ears.
Things to do include: Eileen Myles, Lynne Tillman, Katha Pollitt on Muriel Rukeyser at McNally Jackson, and Gary Greenberg with Gideon Lewis-Kraus on the DSM at BookCourt.
Dave Bry (at noon on Leonard Lopate and tonight at the Park Slope Community Bookstore), Faun Fables at the Knitting Factory, Har Mar Superstar at Le Poisson Rouge, plus James Salter and more! Tonight, so amazing.
It's a magical day when Le1f is doing a show. But in other news, Sam Lipsyte is reading (AGAIN) and there's Tig Notaro and some hot young British novelists are displayed, etc..
Today in New York City: a fine array of offering in the arts and culture department! Also some rain.
Which lady, which lady. (Witch lady?) Which lady. Tonight brings you Renata Adler, Rachel Kushner and Marisa Silver. It all happens tonight.
Just make this week stop. Whatever you want. Here's my money. Would you like some cats? Sure, take it all.
Can't even tell you how good this weekend is, just look and indulge.
Hometown hero Nico Muhly does two (TWO!) shows at Le Poisson Rouge tonight. Iron and Wine is at the Beacon; Kevin Powers is at McNally Jackson; Tiziana Lo Porto discusses her graphic novel Superzelda at the Strand; TJ English talks crime writing at the B&N on 86th Street. Oh yes.
It's just another manic Monday. With special guest stars Jonathan Ames, Ben Greenman and The Breeders. (Breeders tickets are currently starting at $41 on StubHub.) And yet:
UM MARILYNNE ROBINSON IS SPEAKING TONIGHT AT THE CUNY GRAD CENTER. This is slightly difficult for all of us, as there are actually a number of other awesome things happening.
