FREEWilliamsburg just posted the schedule for the Williamsburg Waterfront Show Series, which has replaced the McCarren Park series. It’s a shame that we’ve lost the venue for outdoor movies, but at least there will still be some concerts including Dan Deacon, Grizzly Bear, Beach House and Girl Talk. Check out the schedule here.
All I’m saying is that my biopic would be in Russian and involve Judd Nelson.
Jesus Christ, Park Slope! Where have you been hiding? Every person in Brooklyn attended last night’s opening show of the Celebrate Brooklyn series. Apparently everyone digs David Byrne. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, dickheads – they all adore him. They think he’s a righteous dude.
Brooklyn Skeptic had a few representatives there, although we didn’t want to pay the $3 recommended donation or wait in the ridiculous line. So instead, we sat outside the designated rocking area and drank Coors Light tallboys. Because we’re classy. It was all fun and games until he started playing Once In A Lifetime, at which point everyone pushed forward and Brooklyn Skeptic got trampled to death.
Note: In the below picture, recklesley managed to capture the crowd, as well as that cute redhead that was sitting in front of us. Well done reckles.
The trailer for the new and improved Sherlock Holmes movie is out. As you may know, this is one of two Sherlock Holmes movies, the other set to star Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen. Anyway, this one looks amusing enough. Robert Downey Jr. gets cooky and British while finding plenty of time to slow motion punch people with his shirt off (he just wanted to destroy something Cockney). See the trailer below.
I’m looking forward to this movie for a lot of reasons, not least of which is that I could happily spend an afternoon braiding flowers into zach galifianakis’s beard. But mostly because I think a movie that combines the early aughts zeitgeist of Dude, Where’s My Car? and the Let’s Just Kill Fucking Everyone approach of Very Bad Things is grievously overdue.
This is not the movie I am thinking of.
