February 16th, 2009 · Comments Off on Fun Vid: Williamsburg Skyline at Dawn
Just posted to the YouTube, the video maker writes: “I’m not keen on the new luxury towers cropping up in NYC’s low-rise neighborhoods but there they are. I sped this up to make the movement of the elevator and crane more obvious on this construction site. February 2009.”

We are freaking idiots. This is what you call a day late and a dollar short or behaving like a print journalist. We should have posted this in the morning, given that Lux Interior passed away yesterday. One of our favorite memories of a show is a booze-fueled Cramps show in DC in 1978 in […]
February 3rd, 2009 · Comments Off on Fun Vid: Cherry Blossoms (with the Cocteau Twins)
Hey, it’s snowing and wintry today, so why not look at a vid of the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden with the Cocteau Twins as the soundtrack?
February 1st, 2009 · Comments Off on Because We Can: Joy Division, The Eternal
This vid combines two of our favorite things in the world: the ocean and Joy Division or, more to the point, Ian Curtis. Here are Ian’s words: Procession moves on, the shouting is over, Praise to the glory of loved ones now gone. Talking aloud as they sit round their tables, Scattering flowers washed down […]

This is a vid of trolleys running all over Brookyn in the 1930s. You’ll see some familiar buildings and it even runs down Fifth Avenue. Cool stuff.

Watch a guy dressed as a freaking banana run through Prospect Park at 750AM on a Sunday morning when it’s 18 degrees. It’s kind of little documentary that just proves how grand life can be in our favorite borough in the city so nice they named it twice.

This is about right for a post that goes up at 8AM. It’s the late Nick Drake’s Northern Sky set to some photos that someone shot. There was a time when we were very young that this song touched us so deeply that it always made us cry. Now, we can make it to the […]
January 26th, 2009 · Comments Off on Priceless Video: Brooklyn Goes to Cleveland
This is an amazingly amusing short film from the 1950s that’s about Cleveland from the perspective of Brooklyn. Priceless. Props to E.C. Stephens for coming across this. Seriously, if you want to chuckle, watch this.

This is a very emotional day for us and when we feel emotional we always turn to Joy Division. We have been doing this for more than 30 years. This is the only music video Joy Division ever made. As many of you know, Ian Curtis, the most brilliant songwriter and singer of his generation […]

The maker of this vid describes it as a “high strung” walk through the snow in Park Slope and Greenwood Heights.” Watch it and you’ll see what he means.
January 4th, 2009 · Comments Off on Amusing Vid: The View from a Bay Ridge Highrise
It starts out with views of Manhattan and Jersey, but the pan back to Brooklyn over Sunset Park is actually more interesting.

Fifty People, One Question: Brooklyn from Crush & Lovely on Vimeo. Give this one a whirl. It’s fun.
December 18th, 2008 · Comments Off on Interesting Vid: How Bad Does the Brooklyn Job Situation Suck?
Answer without even watching the vid: pretty f’ng bad. And it’s got to be right because Columbia Journalism School students discovering Brooklyn say so.

Oh, well, it’s the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, so why not? Here’s the description of the vid from the kids who made it: “This is a movie that my friend and I put together for our English book project on themes from-A Tree Grows in Brooklyn By: Betty Smith. Please enjoy! We spent only 1 hour […]
