Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic’s directorial debut, “Scriptura Vitae”, is one of the most intriguing films we’ve seen in a while; Commissioned by the UK’s Channel 4 and Protein London as part of the Random Acts arts platform and featuring an original soundtrack by Diplo as well as London-based producer Actress and British duo Plaitum, the film premieres tomorrow night at Neuehouse in Manhattan.
Andrew Demetre’s first book, Drinking and Driving in Urumqi, is the account of one full night as he is driven around the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China by two burly, hard drinking Uyghur political heavies and the mysterious and often elusive love interest that drew Andrew to China’s remote Northwest in the first place. Kurt McVey caught up with with Andrew to discuss the book, his experiences, and why Christian Bale would play him in the movie version.
Levi Mandel is a photographer who was born in Seattle in 1985. By the age of nine he had already decided that as an adult he would live in New York City. His knack for getting into trouble started early too around that time; in 1997 Levi got suspended from middle school for doing graffiti, and it would be that combination of a gifted eye for composition and inclination towards mischief that would come found the basis for his photography.

‘You Already Know’ sounds like exactly like The Smiths! So you basically have a mash-up of The Smiths and Arcade Fire? What else could you want you spoiled bastards!
SUPERCHIEF GALLERY at CULTUREFIX on the Lower East Side is proud to present the release of Tod Seelie’s book BRIGHT NIGHTS: PHOTOGRAPHS OF ANOTHER NEW YORK, along with a solo show of his work.
Photographer Stacy Kranitz recently journeyed to Skatopia, a famed 88 acre skate park/commune in Ohio which was founded in 1995, documented in the 2010 film of the same name, and once described by writer Kevin Duffel as “a demented mess that meets halfway between an anarchistic Mad Maxian Thunderdome and a utopian skateboard society.” Goddamn if it isn’t one of the best things we’ve ever seen.
NEW YORK 2013: It is refreshing to have some visible role-models from the gender-fucking counter-culture. Like Wu-Tang once proclaimed themselves to be (or an in-the-middle-of-a-three-month-bender ODB once proclaimed Wu-Tang to be; whatever) Ladosha is for the children.
Pitchfork hated it, but then again they have always had it in for any band from SF that wasn’t Thee Oh Sees. Besides those dudes have been getting it wrong for some time now.
Superchief Gallery recently played host to the book release for Paul Kwiatkowski’s “And Every Day Was Overcast”, from Black Balloon Publishing. We spoke to Paul about the visual memoir of AEDWO, and culture of the time period that birthed it.

The W Hotel’s Gangs of New York summer music showdown ended with a Warriors-like gathering of emerging crews, but it was hip-hop’s OG prankster who stole the show and brought each crew together. Superchief waded through the smoke in the MC’s hotel suite to catch up with the man himself, and discuss what he’s into now, the difference between the 90′s and today, the victories in the movement to legalize marijuana, “How High 2″, and of course, that episode of Cribs.
This weekend in honor of the New York Art Book Fair, Unpiano Books is releasing a limited number of SKY2K – new work by photographer Sandy Kim.
James Murphy is all over this supposed AF single and I can’t say I’m mad at it – though maybe it’s a little boring?
Damn maybe it’s all the Xanax I’m on or something, but this mix chilled me the fuck out. And not in like an ambient way – in a pop way. Do you know how hard it is to find pop songs that can mellow you out?
Like all overproduced albums this one loses the fucked up, playfulness of a teenager with a great voice and comes off instead like someone told him what it “should” sound like. If you liked ‘Out Getting Ribs’ before this album, do yourself a favor and skip the new version forever.
