The Street Aesthetic of New York City

Posted in Art, Film, Home with tags , , , on December 16, 2011 by SOCIALIGHT Entertainment

This video reminds us of why we LOVE New York so much! Director Christian Andersen does such a great job catching the imagery and life of NYC with this piece, we can almost smell the summer, city streets!


 

Andersen’s Description:
I had a chance to go visit one of the greatest cities this summer. Right when I got of the plane and arrived downtown New York, I took my camera and strolled out through the busy streets of New York City. I wanted to capture the great culture and street aesthetic of New York and I think it turned out really well. The video includes recordings from both Manhattan and Brooklyn, where I spend hours capturing the culture and everyday life of native New Yorkers.

Title: The Street Aesthetic of New York City

Greenpoint Moped Gang Rumbles — on the Web!

Posted in Home, News with tags , , , on August 19, 2009 by SOCIALIGHT Entertainment

Greenpoint has a 12-strong moped gang called The Orphans, and you can imagine what’s coming next: they’re in a major beef about who’s a damn hipster.

The pretend thugs have gotten some press of late, most notably from Wired , where text and pics allow readers to “meet some of the Orphans, have a run-in with the law and take a ride over the bridge into Manhattan, moped-style.” The article suggests the easy-riders are unconcerned with other people’s opinions. “The mopeders ride on at their own speed (fast but not too fast) and on their own creations (solid but not too pretty),” Wired says. “They’re unconcerned with acceptance, just enjoying the wind in their faces and the mild rumble beneath them. ”

But a look at the blog for the gang’s moped shop (the Orphanage) suggests the moped-ers do in fact care what people think, particularly commenters. A post titled “Media Moped Love Fest XXX” takes a jab at some of the negative reactions the media coverage has attracted…

“Moped culture has been blandly described to your aunt, at a 5th grade level. But what has been the readership reaction?” the blogger asks. He then lists something called the “Top 5 greatest hates” e.g. “They [Hipsters] ruin everything useful. bikes, mopeds, irony, coffee, alcohol. they take things that can be useful in certain cases, and destroy them, make them ridiculous..”

This last putdown, like most included in the list, appears to be lifted from the comments section of the Die Hipster site.

There the site’s anonymous purveyor wasted no time making fun of the Orphans and their Wired write-up. The writer mentions, for example, how mini-hog riders are hipsters doomed to head back to the Midwest where they will ask their mothers for their rooms and Playstations back. 110 comments follow.

Ryan Due is a member of the Orphans and the owner of the gang’s shop. Bringing up Die Hipster and its slew of comments makes his voice go taut.

Ryan offers that the “Top 5 great hates” post was a way of striking back at all those detractors. He also says he’s called Die Hipster’s owner a coward, and has said the blogger should come and meet the group face to face.

The author of Die Hipster, reached via email, explains the Orphans entry wasn’t personal; It was “just another post about the many kinds of hipsters that exist. Different breeds, same principle. Starved for attention adults that can’t believe they actually lasted in NYC for more than a few months. I could never eliminate the entire flock. I just hope a bunch of them read diehipster.com and feel like shit.”

analog-nights-wallpaperIf you can’t get enough retro audio, why not plaster your walls with it?

Makes a great accent wall, especially if the price to do a whole room is out of your reach.
