Miley Cyrus Played Crazy Cat Lady at Meow Parlour

Meow Parlour’s Facebook)

You know the cat café phenomenon is hitting a peak when Miley Cyrus shows up.

On Monday she graced Meow Parlour on Hester Street with her presence, sporting her “normal” look (fuzzy red newsboy cap that looks like it belongs on Sesame Street, a plain baggy white sweatshirt and what might be pajama bottoms). The employees look pretty stoked, but what if Miley was there to add new blood to her “Dead Petz” collection? Just kidding– her real pets have their own Instagram accounts, like Shanti Om. And of course, don’t forget her pet pig Bubba Sue, who famously made her debut on the cover of Paper mag with a nude Miley.

Last week, organizers behind the hotly anticipated NYC Porn Film Festival finally released a schedule. And with just a couple of weeks to go until things are in full swing at Secret Project Robot, you’re probably wondering what on earth to expect.

We spoke with the festival’s founder Simon Leahy, who’s also one of the people behind Bushwig, the annual (and amazing) drag fest held at Secret Project Robot approaching its fourth year. He dropped hints about some of the surprises in store. No matter what your feelings are about mainstream porn, you’re definitely not going to want to miss this one, we can tell you that much.

Chris Stein of Blondie: ‘Miley Cyrus at Her Craziest is Not Really Dangerous’

All images by Chris Stein from the book "Negative: Me, Blondie and The Advent of Punk," and the exhibition of the same name at Somerset House in London, November 5 to January 25.

Few people personify the downtown New York aesthetic like Chris Stein. As the guitarist of Blondie, he’s helped to define—and defy—what people talk about when they talk about New York. Fortunately for us, he was documenting his adventures in the dangerous old New York, as proven in his book of photographs. These were shown at the Chelsea Hotel in September, and a new show opened yesterday on the other side of the pond at the Somerset House in London.

The Hunt Brings Stuffed Bears, Miley’s Pig, and Other Oddities to Canal Street

As its name implies, it takes some effort to discover the new storefront of Lower East Side’s enigmatic purveyors with panache, The Hunt. Framed under an electronics store sign belonging to an old tenant, The Hunt’s cryptic entrance acts as a sort of portal into the world contained within – part store, part museum – where the line between old and new is a bit uncertain.

Our Miley Moment, and 99 Other Images From Art Basel and Miami Art Week

LAMPSHADE

For me, Peak Basel came sometime around midnight Saturday, when a young man toting a volume of F. Scott Fitzgerald strolled into Nobu flanked by a pair of semi-naked women with disco-ball pasties and lampshades for heads; the dining room burst into adoring applause as the trio briefly presented itself to a corner booth occupied by Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger.

The So So Glos Promise Their ‘Wrecking Ball’ Video Is Better Than Miley’s

Back in June, the So So Glos invited us into their Bushwick HQ, Shea Stadium, and played “House of Glass” off of their newly released LP, “Blowout.” Now they’re back with a cinematic video for “Wrecking Ball” that they promise is better than Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” video, even if none of the boys got nekkid for it. But is it better than Bruce Springsteen’s “Wrecking Ball”? Grab a coffee and a donut and find out.

Alleyway Objects, Tech Art Galore, and More Visual Treats Opening This Week

(image via The Lodge Gallery)

Foofaraw & Spleen
Opening Wednesday, May 10 at The Lodge Gallery, 7 pm to 9 pm. On view through June 11.

This exhibition brings together two artists whose work is lighthearted, literary, and warmly familiar. The Lodge Gallery and DAVID&SCHWEITZER Contemporary, whose Ayakamay exhibition we recently covered, will be pairing up paintings by Heather Morgan and watercolor works on paper by Paul D’Agostino for the jauntily-named exhibition “Foofaraw & Spleen.”

Morgan, who normally deals in self-portraits, has created an array of portraits of familiar faces that are not her own. Looking back at you will be a selection of figures that Morgan considers inspirational: writers, musicians and the like, ranging from esteemed literary fellows to plain old rock stars. D’Agostino, on the other hand, will be showing a portion of the 140 works on paper he’s created for a book project. As they are titled The Produce Chronicles, With Flowers, it seems he is taking a leafier approach than Morgan’s human renderings. Together, their work creates a harmony of quaint depictions, from the natural realm to the human species.

Tim Heidecker Plays a Dorky Dad in Flower, Which Is Not ‘Just a Blow Job Movie’

If you’re a fan of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, you probably think of Tim Heidecker as an eternal infant, reveling in funny faces and fart noises. But that’s starting to change now that the New Yorker has called him a “bard of suburban fatherhood.” (Not that he’s gone entirely straight– that same article mentioned his band’s “themed album all about imbibing urine.”) So it’s not a complete shock to see the king of infantile absurdism playing a painfully dorky dad in Flower, a film by Max Winkler that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last week.

Last night, a bunch of Glassholes (including Paul Simon, who was spotted ducking into the stage entrance) descended on Carnegie Hall to celebrate the birthday of East Village composer and living legend Philip Glass (yes, that guy on the wall of the 2nd Avenue subway station). Though Glass turned 80 yesterday, the audience was the one getting the gifts in the form of three pieces performed by the Bruckner Orchester Linz, the esteemed Austrian outfit that has premiered more of the Glass’s symphonies than anyone else.
