We have to agree with New York’s verdict that Marwencol is one of “The 20 Essential Documentaries of the Century,” so it’s kind of exciting that the film’s subject, Mark Hogancamp, will be making a rare NYC appearance at a screening that accompanies an exhibit of his latest work.

Look Back and Laugh: Filmmaker Recalls the ‘Salad Days’ of DC Hardcore

Salad Days premieres tomorrow at DOC NYC , and as we mentioned in this week’s Reel Psyched, it’s definitely on our short list of must see-films. Given our devotion to all things East Village and Lower East Side, we thought it might be cool to talk to filmmaker Scott Crawford about the D.C. hardcore scene of the ’80s and see how it compared to the punk scene in New York City.

When YouTube opened one of its public production facilities in Los Angeles, the head of the project cited CBGBs as the sort of community hub they were trying to create. “We like to say the new Debbie Harry will meet the next Ramones here and a great partnership will be born,” he told FT. Now a fourth YouTube Space has opened in New York with elements of the actual CBGB in place.

How 6 Practitioners of the Dark Arts View Halloween

(Photo: Catland website)

With so many wild parties going on tonight, it’s easy to forget that Halloween originates from the ancient festival of Samhain, celebrated by the Celts 2,000 years ago. Before their new year on November 1, they thought the boundary between the living and dead would deteriorate and ghosts could appear on Earth. So, how do today’s pagans and occultists view the holiday as it’s celebrated today? We asked some of them to find out.

Mysteries: Mike Tyson Statue at NYU, Turkey’s Nest in Hell’s Kitchen

The Fillmore East’s new plaque wasn’t the only historical marker unveiled in recent days — last week, while we were trying to score tickets for Television and Joshua Light Show (some footage of the show here), we noticed this stately statue of Mike Tyson outside of Skirball Center, across from Washington Square Park. After we did a double take like Little Mac getting clocked in the jaw by Iron Mike, it was obvious this was just a promotion for his new Adult Swim show, Mike Tyson Mysteries, which — as Tyson himself has noted — is a trippy version of Scooby-Doo meets A-Team. When we walked by yesterday, the statue had vanished.

Michael Stipe’s personal art studio is in a weirdly public place—the gallery for NYU’s studio art school, 80 Washington Square East. But he only works there when it’s closed.
