    Are there any good International (global) communications grad programs in NYC? Columbia has a good one, right?

    Thinking of working for an NGO, Jeff? Funnily enough, a friend of mine just started the graduate program in global communications at the American University in Paris. She got accepted to Columbia, AUP and two other colleges I'm having trouble recalling. She ended up choosing AUP partly for the experience of living in Paris of course. So far she seems to love it.

    Hey NYC - Anyone gonna hit the library on December 8?

    THE VELVET UNDERGROUND
    Lou Reed with Maureen ‘Mo’ Tucker, Doug Yule & David Fricke
    Tuesday, December 8, 2009
    7:00pm in the Celeste Bartos Forum


    Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
    Fifth Avenue & 42nd Street / Enter at 42nd Street
    In the historic ferment of Sixties rock, the Velvet Underground were the perfect band in the right city, New York, at a crucial time.
    For five years – 1965 to 1970 – singer-songwriter and guitarist Lou Reed, bassist and viola player John Cale, guitarist Sterling Morrison and drummer Maureen Tucker, with the German vocalist Nico and bassist Doug Yule (who replaced Cale in 1968), broadcast the real life of their home town – the sex, drugs and art; the furious street energies, hidden pleasures and desperate romance – in an unprecedented pop music of vivid storytelling and transgressive excitement.
    On stage and on their four influential studio albums, the Velvets invented the many futures of rock – punk, drone, free improvisation, lyric candor – in songs and performances that made the group notorious, with the pivotal help of their early manager and mentor, Andy Warhol. Legendary status came later, after the group broke up and Reed and Cale went on to bold prolific solo careers.
    Today, the Velvet Underground are the stars they always deserved to be – the Beatles of New York – with a rich and still mysterious story that continues to unfold in the new visual collection, The Velvet Underground: New York Art, edited by Johan Kugelberg, and, in this unprecedented reunion of Reed, Tucker and Yule, on Tuesday, December 8th, LIVE from the NYPL!

    I just hope Lou lives up to his reputation and behaves like a complete asshole.

    The space only holds 500 people, so whether this is just a lecture or some kind of performance, I'm pretty stoked.

    I was supposed to be in Miami this "holiday season", but the event I was to attend might be getting delayed until next year. If so, I'll be spending Christmas and NYE in NY! God, I hope it comes together! What are the quintessential NY Christmas/NYE must-do's besides Rockefeller Xmas Tree, Times Square Ball Drop, Broadway shows and getting drinks with Tim, Crispin and Gonshman?

    I know it's going to be annoying and loud and crowded and full of drunken NYU students and smelly tourists but.... still might do it. Might.

    Cold, I can handle. I've been in Minneapolis in the dead of winter. I'm more worried about the sweltering heat of summer once I move out there. Anyway, might as well do it while I'm still a tourist.

    I'd not recommend doing Times Square, Andrew. There are so many cooler parties and events going on in NY on NYE.

    Anyone here been to the Mingus Big Band set at The Jazz Standard? I'm going next Monday. Really excited to see Charles Mingus' legacy project for the first time. Heard that they're amazing.

    Fiance (Somewhat Damaged).


    Actually, the movie is called Somewhat Damaged. It's in the last movie in the 6:00 block of movies being shown.

    I'm gonna try to make it out for that. As of right now, I've got nothing on tap, so it's looking good.

    I have heard rumors that out there you guys can get NYG jerseys for like $20/$40 on the street corners instead of the $110 it would cost online. If this is true, would any of you be willing to pick one up and ship it to me if I send you the money via paypal or whatever?

    edit: I don't really need it right away, in the next few weeks would be fine.

    We had to drive through that shit on Saturday night after visiting my mother upstate. The worst conditions were in Manhattan, especially around the Queensboro Bridge. We also got that lane on the outside of the bridge proper, which was kind of frightening and surreal.

    Two things...

    Anyone planning to run the NY 1/2 Marathon (March 21) or the big ING NYC Marathon (Nov. 7)? I just got my approval notice for the 1/2 Marathon in March. I haven't heard back on the full marathon yet. I've run 3 previous 1/2 Marathons, so I think I'll be okay with March, but I'm a bit nervous about my first full length marathon. Plenty of time to train, though.

    Also, any NYers own a car? If so, why? I was prepared to rely exclusively on public transport, but I may need to bring my car. I move to Williamsburg in mid-March and if I can't sell my car for a decent price (not the best time to be selling a Toyota) I may bring it with me and eventually see what I can get for it in NY or NJ. I know it's kind of a nutty move, but I can get the car shipped over for $200 and my roommates tell me there's usually room to park nearby our apartment.
