Spotted on Ludlow Street near Canal.
After seeing a play on Saturday evening, Geoffrey and I walked by this Asian take-out place in the Times Square Adjacent / Theater District and I just had to stop and take a picture of their window ads, featuring a cartoon version of Psy, singer of the worldwide, viral hit “Gangam Style” from a few years back. Psy is pimping what looks like a pretty serious soup dumpling.
I couldn’t tell you if these dumplings are any good, as we did not stop to sample them. If you’re intrigued enough to try and find it, the restaurant is on the west side of 8th Avenue in the vicinity of 45th and 46th Streets. Sadly, I did not catch its name.
Hey, Weed Aficionados, put down that bong for a few minutes and check this out. If your cable provider includes the Viceland Channel, get ready for a fun TV event — Weed Week — that no Pot Head will want to miss! Beginning Monday, April 17th, the Vice Network will bring viewers four days of entirely Weed-Themed Originals, Documentaries, Comedies and other Cutting-edge Programming! Weed Week comes to a close on Thursday, April 20th. Because: 4/20.
In preparation for this high-ly anticipated event, Viceland has launched a Weed Week Storefront Takeover in New York City, and in Los Angeles. These Storefronts are now filled up with fake-weed (4 inches deep) complete with a weed scented ATM oozing the smell of green onto the streets! Get your Selfies, Instagram pics and Group-photos now through April 20th!
In NYC, you’ll find the Weed Week Storefront at 90 Stanton St. on New York’s Lower East Side. In LA, the location is 7024 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles (across from Grauman’s Chinese Theatre).
Smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em!
I shot this video – a fun ad for David Bowie’s Blackstar album — while standing on the corner of 8th Avenue and 34th Street, in front of the Port Authority.

As previously reported on Boing Boing, above you will find a ’70s-era print ad for Purina tinned Cat food featuring electronic music pioneer and glam rocker Brian Eno, and his cat, Eric.
Thanks to Evelyn Chote for the Image!
Update April 2, 2017: Apparently this Ad is Fake. Oh well, it’s still Hilarious!
