    You know that acquaintance on Facebook, the person you don't know too well, but their life is too interesting to ignore? Well for me, that person is Leah Taylor Dunbar. We met years ago when her husband and I worked together on Manson The Musical – yes, a musical comedy about Charles Manson that surprisingly never made it out of off-off-Broadway. Leah has, for the past few years, been posting photos of her involvement with an immersive cinema company called BBQ Films. After seeing her post photos from their latest Mean Girls event in Greenpoint, I decided it was time to ask Leah what this BBQ Film thing was all about. Leah couldn't wait to tell me about the company and invited me to her office at Flavorpill in Soho to discuss. "The production company started out as a casual rooftop cookout and film screening in Spanish Harlem," she told me, "and developed… Read More >

    Awareness of New York's gentrification and all its negative nuances has become increasingly widespread in recent decades, with the word's cultural meaning evolving from a synonym with urban revitalization to a synonym for displacement and all that is bad about real estate development in New York City. Recently a "wealthy white recent college" graduate took to Reddit to seek advice on how to move to Brooklyn without being a gentrifier. They were predictably roasted. A study releasted yesterday by real estate website StreetEasy ranked the most affordable NYC neighborhoods for grads to move to based on median entry-level salaries and quantity of "affordable inventory". They were: 1. Bedford-Stuyvesant 2. Bushwick 3. Astoria 4. Crown Heights 5. Washington Heights The Brooklyn picks are all historically minority neighborhoods which still retain a large portion of their respective longterm African American, Carribbean, and Hispanic communities. Why isn't East New York on this list? What about the South Bronx? Shouldn't those… Read More >

    Fuck Victoria’s Secret. Yeah I said it. Although, I do still like their undies, they hit my curves (cellulite) just right, okay?! But when it comes to tits, fuck ‘em. They keep saying I’m a 36B. At 5 ft 2 inches and 166 pounds ... I ain’t no 36B. I ain’t never gunna be a B36. A sales associate with a pink measuring tape, a bra fitter does not make. We know that boob sizes don’t end at DD, Victoria. We know that band sizes don’t stop at 40. And we sure as hell aren’t going to be made to feel lesser than just because we have big tits. You know what Victoria’s secret really is? It’s simple really. That they don’t care if they sell you an ill-fitting bra; to them you are just another link in the chain that gets them closer to that almighty $$$. But you’re better… Read More >

    Set your heart free and allow the solar eclipse to work it's zodiac magic on you today and in weeks to come. Except for you Virgos and Scorpios. Get your shit together. Sagittarius Have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately? Like, really stopped and looked? You’ve been chasing that dream/thing/person for a very long time now, and what has that process done to your mental health? We all fall for “schemes,” and sometimes something that is too good to be true is actually exactly what you wanted/needed/deserved. But is this one of those moments? It’s okay to say that you were wrong with this pursuit. No one will judge you. Actually, many will applaud your ability to see your self-worth and ability to take care of yourself. Virgo Don’t be distracted by the dwindling solar eclipse mania, or your fear that you and everyone you know is now blind. You’ve allowed your responsibilities… Read More >
