Studio 54, circa 2008.

When my friend Bryan told me he was moving into a space 10x my apartment, without a kitchen, barely finished bathroom and bedrooms the size of my closets, I was more than skeptical. But, upon entering Studio 814, I was floored with.. well.. the floors.

And mostly everything about the space; this GORGEOUS 2,000 square foot studio/apartment features 12 foot ceilings, wood floors and brick walls and has been dubbed the new "Studio 54" by Blackbook magazine, for hosting a rather unorthodox first exhibit called Electric Palace, by french artist Laurent Grasso

I worked with Bryan on a few photo shoots, styling and assisting with make-up and hair, and the space really is enchanting.  With a small kitchen and sitting area, the studio is primarily for photo shoots and exhibits. You can rent out the space for $600/day or for $400/half day, which includes some in-house equipment and a helluva lotta charm! 

Be sure to check it out. 

[The picture posted is one that I helped style and was taken on the fire escape.]



Oh. my. god. 

So restless, so breathless.

I love Alex Markman. In fact, as I post this, I am wearing the flannel that I kidnapped from him. And I know once he reads this he's going to call me and ask for it back, but we all know that's not going to happen.

Alex needs money to fund his senior NYU film, RESTLESS; the script is awesome, and I'm going to be in it! (barely...) SO, please, check out his website that Anthony Cafaro made, because the website is cool, Alex and Cafaro are cool, and if you've got some spare change, donate it to him and one day you'll be able to say, "I helped that kid get on his feet" when he's fucking famous and you're working at Starbucks. 
While you're at it, check out his YouTube page to see the other movies he's made.
(Love you, Markman!)
Also, Anthony Cafaro, who's linked above, is a brilliant graphic designer, typographer, etc.. and an overall cool guy. Ladies, he's single and sexy. Guys, he'll make your website super sweet. 
(Love you, Cafaro!)

Chic, Chic, Chic.

This summer, I didn't have a job.. or an internship.. or a class to take.. 
So when I wasn't getting high, going to public pools and catching up on some much needed leisure reading, I was window shopping. I came across this little store one day whilst trying to find a friends apartment. 
Don, The Verb, with inventory as interesting as its name, has quite a collection of my favorite vintage designers. Givenchy, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Hermes, etc. hang from the walls of this hidden gem, as well as just perfectly picked vintage and second hand clothing.
Anywho, check them out.

I bet you say "fuck" real pretty.

Oh, how I love anything with glasses and a guitar around the neck.
Rachel Nichols, my girl from high school, always hooks me up with the best new music. 
[She's introduced me to the likes of Neko Case, Magnetic Fields, the Decemberists, etc.]
But, on this seemingly dull Tuesday night, thanks to her, I have fallen in love.
The Neighborhood Choir... This 4-some from Temple is going to haunt me in my sleep.
Listening to them is better than laying in bed, stoned after 8th period math class. Better than summer camp. Better than breaking your first heart.  Better than your first hand-job.
I can't write a music review to save my skinny ass, so sorry for the love letter.

So, goddamit, Neighborhood Choir, come to the East Village and date me! Or at least play a show.


I. Love. These. Sunglasses. 

4 x 5.

For constant pictures of drunk, stoned and wholesome kids, frolicking around New York city, visit my friend John Roman's newly designed website. 
The NY native is never without a camera around his neck and a smile on his face. I've worked with him a few times, and even though he hates me because I can't stand still for a god-damned second, his pictures never cease to amaze me. 
Plus, you can usually spot someone on his website that you've made out with at a party, shared a 40oz with, or have seen walking down 2nd avenue headed to LIT on a weeknight. 


You heard it first.

Check out my boy Sam's music. He only has a little up right now on myspace, but there will be surely more to follow. His music is the cutest, and he's the cutest, and I'm going to marry him so listen to his music.

Trippy shit.

Max showed me this website ages ago, and I've been looking at it recently.. and part of me thinks that if you look at it too long, you'll go clinically insane. 
So check it out!

I shouldn't have a blog.

Just when you think nothing new can be done with photography...
Daniel Gordon taps into a form of photography I've yet to see, by creating dioramas or sculptures of paper that he prints out and then photographs. It easier to understand once you see his work, but everything in that photo was once 3-D. 
You should go check out Gordon and the other artists at the Zach Feuer Gallery in Chelsea.

Above is one of my favorites he did in 2006.
