Sunset - Pelham Shore Park - Long Island Sound

We have a new post by Tony Shea for you to check out.

After a hot and humid week (although not as hot as my friends in Los Angeles have it) represented the last gasp of Summer, cool autumnal weather has come to New York bringing rain and temperatures down into the 50’s. The sunset this evening at Pelham Shore Park, looking south across Long Island Sound, was lovely as the heavy clouds gave way enough to let the sun though, warmly glowing off the water before the sky turned navy blue and then finally dark. These photo were taken on Wednesday September 17, 2014 between 6:45 p.m and 7p.m.

Star-Spangled Banner Turns 200 - The Remixes

We have a new post by Tony Shea for you to check out.

The Star-Spangled Banner, aka the national anthem of the United Sates, turned the ripe old age of 200 today. You probably know that the Star-Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key (who was the second cousin of F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of the Great Gatsby). You probably don’t know that the anthem is actually only one verse of a longer poem that Key wrote called the “The Defence of Fort McHenry” that actually has 4 stanzas. Also the music that accompanies the words is not an original composition, but rather an old English tune by John Stafford Smith called “The Anacreontic Song.” So I guess you could say the national anthem is an early experiment in the remix. Here’s some modern remixes working to keep the track PHRESH! Try swapping out some of the other verses below to make your own super-customizable anthem that best reflects your personality.

Scenes from the Feast of San Gennaro - NYC - Mulberry Street [PHOTOS]

We have a new post by Tony Shea for you to check out.

On my way to see Bob Mould at the Bowery last Friday, I took a short pit stop to tour the Feast of San Gennaro along Mulberry St. in Little Italy. And what a feast it was! The ten day event, now in its 88th year, runs until September 21, 2014 and features dozens upon dozens of food stands serving up classic Italian dishes including connoli, gelato, sausages, pizza and much more, as well as carnival games and rides. So make sure to bring your cash and your appetite! These photographs were taken on September 11, 2014 between 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

[PHOTO] of the Day: Alpine Lake

We have a new post by James Hood for you to check out.

The Alpine ecosystem begins around 11,000 feet. At that altitude, trees do not grow. At that altitude, snow from the prior winter remains, even in August. The melt from that snow cascades down the mountain and forms lakes. The road through the alpine tundra of Rocky Mountain National …

[PHOTO] of the Day: Bear Lake

We have a new post by James Hood for you to check out.

It was our last day in Rocky Mountain National Park. The morning started with an ominous overcast sky. At 9.450 feet, the day was cool, perfect for a hike. We parked at the end of the road to take a short stroll. The number of people was commensurate with the distance from the …

Dave Franco - Hottest Guy in the World (This Month)

We have a new post by Mary Kay Holmes for you to check out.

” — Jarod Kintz I want to take Dave France and frame him in an ornate but worn wooden frame from the thrift store by my house. The dude is so pretty you could wrap him in old fly paper and every woman for 1000 miles would flock to eat it off his lovely body. The funny, charming, good timey fun guy part just pushes it over the edge so let’s simply focus on the objectification, shall we? 

X-Live at The Sinclair

We have a new post by Sean Koepenick for you to check out.

image via Cambridge, MA Yes, this was a Tuesday night. But it is X for chrissakes, so who cares? I had missed them the last time they came to town, so it was time to get back on that horse. I arrived at the club around 8 PM. Since I was already at my 2 t-shirt limit for the band (plus I think my older shirts had cooler designs in all honesty) I stuck to a couple stickers for a measly 5 clams.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TMNT - Review

We have a new post by Nate “Chops” Johnson for you to check out.

I know what you’re thinking. Yet another TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES reboot? How desperate is Nickelodeon to make this property the cash cow they want it to be? How many more lame incarnations of this franchise can there be before they finally put it to bed? Well ladies and gentlemen, trust me, I had very low expectations for this version, but in short, this one kicks ass - and it won’t ruin your childhood memories of the Turtles, either. It’s a basic origin story that starts out a little slow with some exposition before the Turtles show up, but once they do, it’s nearly non-stop action.
