15 Minutes of Shame

Friday, July 30, 2010

The Winnebago Man video is the granddaddy of all viral. Foul-mouthed, vitriolic outtakes from a real promotional shoot starring an RV salesman named Jack Rebney, it circulated underground on VHS tapes in the 1990s, before YouTube turned “the angriest man in the world” into a phenomenon. Spike Jonze is rumored to have sent out copies of the video as Christmas gifts; Conan O’Brien named it as one of his all-time favorites; and Larry David cited Rebney as inspiration for Curb Your Enthusiam.

Life In The Bike Lane: Getting Around The City By Bike

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Bicycling is the fastest-growing way to get around in New York City. The number of people commuting by bike grew by 35 percent between 2007 and 2008 and many of them travel on the city's 420 miles of bike lanes. Still, the city is a crowded, smoggy, busy place and only 1 percent of New Yorkers bike to work.

Andrew Jackson Rules

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Part history lesson, part satire, part blood bath — a lovely night at the theater, no? “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” (now up at New York’s Public Theater) is a singing, dancing, punk-rocking rollick through the 7th presidency.

Riding the Current with Artist Marie Lorenz

Thursday, June 10, 2010

WNYC

New York is a city of islands, irregular masses of land that straddle rivers, creeks and bays. Yet, other than a minority of folks who regularly ride one of the few ferry systems, we are a culture that is tethered to the land, traveling along subways and roads that pass over and under the water. We admire it from the safety of a vast assortment of waterfront parks—but rarely engage with it directly. And, rarer still, in a watercraft that doesn't have engines.

YouTube Stars on YouTube's 5th Anniversary

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Five years ago this week, the first video was uploaded to a new online video sharing site called YouTube. It was grainy, slow-paced, and featured elephants: hardly the sort of thing you'd forward to one's coworkers.

Featuring YouTube co-founder Jawad Karim, it was soon joined by millions more video clips: some of them polished, controversial, mundane, irritating and laugh-out-loud funny.

Today, in honor of YouTube's anniversary, we talk with two ordinarly people who found international fame thanks to YouTube.

The New Ladies of Hip-Hop

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Hip-hop gets a bad rap for being male-dominated and misogynist.  But female MCs have been on the cutting edge of hip-hop since the beginning. The 80's saw outspoken artists like MC Lyte, J.J. Fad, Salt-n-Pepa, Queen Latifah; in the 90's we had Missy Elliott, Eve, and Lauryn Hill. If you ...
