Going Viral Helped Catapult Roddy Ricch and ‘The Box’ to No. 1 — But There’s More to the Story

It’s barely two months into 2020, but it’s already been a big year for rapper Roddy Ricch. The 21-year-old Compton artist has claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 100 for the past five weeks with his viral earworm of a rap song, “The Box,” from his debut album Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, which is the longest-running No. 1 debut rap album to be on the Billboard 200 in nearly two decades since 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in 2003.

Fox News Reporter Arrested After Trying to Sneak Crack Pipe Into Manhattan Federal Courthouse

A Fox News reporter was arrested last week after he was caught trying to sneak a glass crack pipe into the federal courthouse in downtown Manhattan. Lawrence Crook III, who, according to the New York Daily News, was a member of the Fox Business crack reporting team, was reportedly on his way to cover the Sprint/T-Mobile merger trial at the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Courthouse last Monday (Dec. 9) when security personnel noticed a strange object protruding from his sock. Sources with knowledge of t...

Leah Umansky's Favorite Poetry Collections of 2019

Here are some of my favorite books of poetry I read in 2019: The Twenty-Ninth Year by Hala Alyan Hala Alyan’s first book of poems is both lyrical and honest, two of my favorite things about a collection of poetry. I love the way her poems echo what it means to be a woman, to own your body, to take your body out into the world and examine it against both your personal geography and your familial geography. Overall, I found it to be a meditation on the self, on desire and on womanhood.I’m not...

Traditional Inuit Thoat Singing and the Modern World Collide in This Astonishing Video

Let’s just get this out of the way… Musically speaking, Inuit throat singing—or katajjaq—is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. For all those who find this traditional form mesmerizing, there are others who get antsy with no lyrics or easily discernible melody on which to hang their hat, or who experience the bleak sound of the Arctic wind coupled with the singers’ preliminary breathing as a horror movie soundtrack. If, as a member of one of the latter camps, you feel inclined to bail af...

82 Animated Interviews with Living, Dead, Celebrated & Sometimes Disgraced Celebrities

Who wants to live in the present? It’s such a limiting period, compared to the past. —Roger Ebert, Playboy 1990 Were Ebert alive today would he still express himself thusly in a recorded interview? His remarks are specific to his cinematic passion, but still. As a smart Midwesterner, he would have realized that the corn has ears and the potatoes have eyes. Remarks can be taken out of context. (Witness the above.) Recent history has shown that not everyone is keen to roll back the clock—w...

Appreciating Roy Clark

From the comments, there is this. I had the luck (and high honor) of meeting Tony Randall and Heather (his wife) at a restaurant in NYC in 1998. I asked him about this particular scene and he told me this story. He and Jack Klugman rehearsed this scene with Roy many times, but Roy would play a different piece every time (but NEVER Bach or Mountain Dew!). When they shot this in front of the studio audience, he and Jack were both simply ‘reacting’, not acting. When he fell back over the sofa, that...

New York Popeyes Customer Finds Smoked Joint in Chicken Sandwich

A Popeyes customer in New York says he found a roach in his chicken sandwich. No, not the kind you’re thinking about. The other kind. A man named Jeremy Merdinger took to Twitter Monday (Nov. 11) to put Popeyes on blast after a half-smoked joint fell out of his chicken sandwich. “Do all your chicken sandwiches come with a joint in them?” he tweeted. “Found this in my sandwich the other day in NYC. Just wanted to make sure that this doesn’t happen to anyone else.” @PopeyesChicken Do all your chi...

Face It: A Memoir

An autobiography by punk icon Debbie Harry, Face It: A Memoir was crafted by Harry and music writer Sylvie Simmons. The fascinating tome is full of history, anecdotes and wild tales, but steers clear of being a full-on confessional—which perfectly suits Harry’s impeccably crafted Blondie persona. From her teenage years to moving to New York, meeting Chris Stein, her rise to fame and the creation …

32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 5: The Devil-Doll (1936)!

Right out of the starting gate, one of my favorite live albums for Halloween graces us for the #TrackoftheDay. It’s Oingo Boingo’s final concert, Farewell: Live from the Universal Amphitheater. Danny Elfman retired the band because he wanted to focus on film scores but, as I understand it, because he was worried about losing his hearing. I was in a rock band for a brief spell, and even with that small bit under my belt, I get where he’s coming from. That being said, I freaking love Oingo Boingo...

Meet Tiffany Cabán, The AOC-Endorsed Queens DA Candidate Who Supports Sex Workers

Queens district attorney candidate Tiffany Cabán has a big overarching goal: to get people to stop thinking about criminal justice as a punitive system. But to achieve the larger goal, Cabán has to start small, which means knocking on as many doors as possible to ask registered Democrats for their vote in the biggest of New York City's five boroughs, which has over 2.3 million residents.We met up with Cabán in Ridgewood, Queens, a diverse neighborhood in the throes of gentrification.

NYC’s Downtown Party Scene Is Good Again (Here Are A Few People To Thank)

In cities around the world, downtown isn’t just a geographical destination. It’s an entire vibe that separates preservationists from progressives and squares from subversives, attracting legions of misfits, weirdos, transgressors, and provocateurs who eventually become a community. This is especially true for NYC, where you can map so many of the past century’s youth movements via its downtown party scenes. Here, staying south of 14th street isn't just a preference, it's a statement about your ...

12 Money Diarists Reflect On Their Most Expensive Purchases

As we know from Money Diaries, we all have our unique styles when it comes to saving and spending money.

This radio station broadcasts sounds of rats – and it sounds amazing

Rat communication, adjusted for human hearing, makes for surprisingly musical listening. That’s right – you may enjoy the sweet serenade of an actual rat burrow on NYC’s Lower East Side. The results: some fantastic ultrasonic interspecies live performance, and an indication of how much music we might imagine lies beyond traditional human hearing. When we talk transhumanism or post-human art, we’re not kidding. Media artist Brian House has made projects out of machine learning and even acidic t...

How Black-Asian Conflict Plays Out In New York City's Elite High Schools

This year, out of the 895 students accepted to Stuyvesant High School, New York City’s most selective specialized high school, only seven were Black, less than 1% of this year’s incoming freshman class. Meanwhile, 33 Latinx students (3.7%), 194 white students (21.7%), and 587 Asian students (65.6%) were also offered spots. Overall, Black and Latinx students make up 70% of the city’s public school system, but together they only represent a little over 10% of those admitted into the eight academi...

A Week Of Wearing Hiking Boots For Non-Hiking Purposes

In elementary school, my best friend Sean had a uniform: those iguana tees that donated a portion of the proceeds to WWF, cargo shorts, and intense hiking boots (those monkey bars during recess were treacherous). Today, I wear hiking boots even when I’m not trekking up the face of a mountain — and I believe that Sean, subconsciously, inspired me. And he’d be excited to learn that he was at least 15 years early to the rising “hikecore” trend. Hiking boots have evolved since our childhood: Based ...
