An Exercise in Space

November 12th, 2015

Modern Spaces   34-16 30th Avenue, Astoria NY

Join us for wine and hors d’oeuvres as New York native photographer Thanassi Karageorgiou hosts an exhibition in collaboration with Modern Spaces Real Estate. Thanassi draws on his experiences in the field of architecture to showcase select works that depict the enclosure of space through deconstructed geometric principles and phenomenological ideals. An Exercise in Space is the juxtaposition of the strict, unbending confines of real-world perspective and the constant wandering of the mind’s eye.

Being a Knicks Fan is Like Dating Someone Ugly on the Inside

Dark Days

They say you can’t choose your family, but you can choose your friends and significant others. Some of us have a history of choosing the wrong people, time after time, but being a Knicks fan these days is like eternally dating someone you know is bad for you in the long run. It could be that bad boy with the leather jacket, the skull tattoo and the motorcycle. Or maybe its the hot, high-maintenance foreign girl who dresses a bit too provocatively and takes a little longer than normal to answer your messages. We’ve all been there. And when they hurt us, we don’t always learn our lesson right away. Sometimes we come crawling back for more. In the case of Knicks fans, sometimes is more like always. Continue reading »

The Tenth Annual No-Pants Subway Ride: 2012 Edition

So you’re done with the excessive holiday eating? What better way to strut your new-found pounds than with the annual No-Pants Subway Ride. What originally began as a 7-person prank has now evolved into an internationally observed day of silliness. More than 4,000 people took their trousers off yesterday in New York City’s subways, and thousands more reportedly joined in around the world. Improv Everywhere organizes the annual event, where the sexy strap-hangers begin their train rides all over the city and then converge onto Union Square Park for an impromptu celebration of sorts.

Digital Surgery: Another Example of Why You’ll Never Be This Beautiful

There are those of us who are born with average looks, and there are those who are genetically gifted. Folks with great bone structure, greater than average height and fast metabolisms have always had it a little easier in life. But even those people are trolls compared to the soulless aliens that grace our magazine covers and billboards. Here’s an in-depth look at the birth of a mutant. Continue reading »

Trigger Finger: Rock Climbing for Toddlers

image

Playgrounds and Jungle gyms have undergone drastic changes since yours truly was able to play in them without suspicious looks from concerned mothers. This particular example in Long Island City made me giggle.

This looks to me like some kind of beginner rock-climbing thing. Did the playground designers imagine kids wearing junior climbing gear, coating their hands with Johnson’s Baby Powder to give them a better grip for the trecherous feat?

Do the parents in this newly gentrified LIC neighborhood encourage their spawn to “rock climb” at the playground? Do they hope their kid will someday grow up and climb the “real” wall at the $100-a-month gym? No. The parents don’t even know about their kid’s extreme sports adventures. Whenever I’ve passed by, its just been bored kids with chatty nannies.
