Wait, it's a Banksy? No? Yeah, no. A tipster sent us photos of a booth in SoHo showing stencils made in the characteristic Banksy style. There's little else to suggest it's the British rapscallion, but journalistic due diligence demands we publish the photos and speculate wildly about them. What say ... More >>
The long weekend is here! We say you abandon your Black Friday shopping strategy, take it easy, and check out a few of the city's less intense events -- none of which require you to wait in line at 5 a.m.
Two holiday markets have everyone on your list covered
It's in the attached link, a writeup about the upcooming HBO movie Beyond The Candelabra, directed by Steven Soderbergh, in which Oscar winner Michael Douglas plays the keyboard tinkler who inspired pianist envy, while Matt Damon is his soon-to-be-disgruntled beau slash chauffeur Scott Thorson.
This is definitely not safe for work--though it's safe for working your business into a frenzy. It's your one-stop shopping site for various male celebs in various amounts of dishabille, as seen in their very worthy filmic projects.

BravoUntil next year...You've got to hand it to the folks at Bravo. Not only did they give us the worst Top Chef season in recent memory, they also ruined what little incentive we had to tune in to the finale by revealing the winner hours before the show. Thanks for absolutely nothing, guys!
Speaking of Gawker moves, looks like another one's being made.
If you're wondering about the reindeer and snowmen that went into the window this week at the old Tower Records (on the corner of East 4th and Lafayette), it's the Brooklyn Flea's pop-up holiday market, Gifted, or -- as we fondly call it -- "the place where we're totally doing all of our holi ...

Sixties icon and boot-wearer Nancy Sinatra is timelessly relevant to me, but she's even more so with this remixed version of her hit "Sugartown," using the clip from her groundbreaking TV special Movin' With Nancy.

Two movies ask: Do the masses or the man make the difference in history?
Most of us think of identity theft as something that affects holders of credit cards and internet shoppers. But now fraudsters are using a phone scam to get welfare recipients' social security numbers. Using these numbers to break into their victims' bank accounts seems beyond the crooks' ambitions ...

One last sleepy Red Hook weekend before Ikea arrives
