Walk down Morgan Avenue, past Owen Dippie’s recent mural of Renaissance artists sporting Mutant Ninja Turtle masks, and you’ll get to ASVP’s latest, “Triple Crown.” The black-and-white painting on the side of Sugarlift gallery shows three horses, all clean lines and free-flowing manes. “It’s derived from a larger theme that we’ve incorporated into some of our recent work,” a member of the anonymous duo told us. “The concept of finding wildness.”

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.

Our brilliant idea for Girls Talk this week? Get Ray Lemoine, best known for tangling with Paris Hilton’s little brother, to text about the episode with Lindsay Lohan. After all, the East Village freelancer, who now refers to that incident as a performance-art piece called “Lohan Thug,” still gets spotted with Lilo when he’s not throwing parties or getting arrested at Sundance. And who better than she to weigh in on the foibles of Hannah and her cronies?

Greta Gerwig Directed Lady Bird With a Little Help From Blink 182

When describing her directorial debut, Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig turns to pop music: “It’s a pop song that’s really fun to sing along to––a really great upbeat song––and then you hear it covered by someone else, slowed down, and all of a sudden you can hear the lyrics and you think, ‘Oh no, that song’s tragic.’” As creative, intuitive, and vibrant as its writer-director, Gerwig’s film stars Saoirse Ronan as the eponymous Lady Bird, a restless high school senior eager to break out of her suffocating Sacramento hometown. But the film’s beating heart belongs to Laurie Metcalf, who plays Lady Bird’s aching, outwardly reproachful mother wrestling with how to say goodbye.

(Sorry if I can’t get excited about paying a cool hundo to meet Nate Silver at the PlayStation Theater during a taping of his FiveThirtyEight election podcast.) But at least there’s this: One of our favorite podcasts, Catie Lazarus’s Employee of the Month, records right here at Joe’s Pub, and the new season returns this month.
