The High Line’s art scene is always vibrant, but rarely deep fried. Until now. Artist Jamal Cyrus presents “Texas Fried Tenor” on Saturday November 16, at 2pm at the 14th Street Passage. It is a performance art piece that grapples with racial issues in American history, blending an instrument of the blues & jazz age with the southern stereotype of cuisine defined by the fryer. It promises to be an interesting and provocative show that is sure to surprise and intrigue city tots!
With a 9 year old at home, it’s no surprise that dinnertime convos often revolve around the world of MMOGS. I’m just not totally able to wrap my head around Minecraft and Roblox (though I do appreciate the retro graphics!) But I just stumbled upon this new Kickstarter project, a Jane Austin based MMOG that’s filled with gossip, intrigue and Regency period dress. I thought it was a pretty cool idea to take classic literature into the immersive world of these games, and am going to give it a shot. It’s sort of a 19th century upper crust Real Housewives online. (cringe, love). If they meet their goal, the game will feature quests, families, mini games and lion’s share of intrigue. They’re 1/3 of their way there on their goal of $100,000. Bravo? http://kck.st/19DPaVY.
We had a blast handing out candy to the waves of New York City kids who trick or treated their way around Tribeca! Some of the costumes scared us, some endeared us, all were amazing! Here are some pics from All Hallow’s Eve in the City!
We’re psyched to see what super-fun designer Jeremy Scott will do with the Moschino brand as Creative Director! Judging by his quirky style with awesome carseat company Cybex, we know it’s a match made in heaven! Congrats!
Clockwise from the left: Babysitter and Coco Bouncer
This week in the ring we introduce two of our favorite contenders for the Lightweight/Travel Bouncer Title. Let’s meet the competitors, shall we?
IN THIS CORNER: BLOOM’S COCO GO BOUNCER!
With three easy recline positions – fully flat, semi-upright, and fully upright – this bouncer with it’s two speed concealed vibration unit weighs in at 7.5lbs. For families on the go, the Coco Go includes an easy travel bag. The fabric components are machine washable, the wood elements are birch in three beautiful finishes, and the anti-skid base includes front and rear retractable feet. Suitable for newborn to 20lbs, this bouncer is certainly a strong contender for the title.
IN THE OTHER CORNER: BABY BJORN’S BABYSITTER!
Whether for play, rest, or sleep, this bouncer transforms your child’s movements into a soothing rocking motion to refine balance and motor skills while keeping your hands free. This bouncer is also ready to travel, easily folding into a compact travel position and weighing in at just 5lbs. Developed in close collaboration with pediatricians, the Babysitter features an ergonomic design to properly support your child – from newborn up to about 2 years – and distribute their weight evenly. The Babysitter is made of machine-washable, guaranteed child safe fabrics and the reversible fabrics and harness allow you to create several color schemes.
Now that you’ve been introduced to the competitors, LET THE GAMES BEGIN! (In the comments of course, let us know what you think!)
