Is our nabe headed to the Oscars? Maaaaybe. Battle For Brooklyn, a feature length documentary about the controversial Atlantic Yards project, is one of fourteen films currently in the running for an Oscar nomination. 

Husband and wife filmmaker team Suki Hawley and Michael Galinsky spent eight years carving over 500 hours of footage down into the feature length documentary, which has won numerous festival awards, including this year's Rooftop Films Summer Series Official Selection (you can read our FiPS review of the film HERE).

Cool or Not Cool: Getting in trouble for stopping a public masturbator?

WHY’S IT GOTTA BE *BLACK* FRIDAY?

This past Friday was Black Friday: the day where no one pays retail. Who came up with that name, Helen Keller? So what’s Jewish Friday, then: a day of fried chicken and hoops?

I’ve been very sensitive to names with the word “Black” in them ever since a high school professor made a kid stand outside our classroom for using the word “Blackball.” He was actually a very fair, devoted jazz teacher who was just trying to prove a point, though he got reprimanded by our uptight Parents Association for the rampage he unleashed on the kid:

“BLACKmail? BLACKball? You will NEVER hear me use those goddamn words. Howdja like it if I went round talkin’ bout I’mma Jew ya parents down when I go to buy a diamond ring?”
