Hey Kids...It's Porn Week!

Just came across this interesting happening in Brooklyn this week...A spot called Monkeytown is hosting it's 5th Annual Porn Week starting December 20th. (And, no, you may NOT spank your monkey there. It ain't that kind of party.)

According to the description it's “erotic film for people who like film”.

From what I can gather, it looks to be a quite interesting and playful line up of erotic and sexually-themed films like the music video below directed by Emilie Joulet entitled "Vicious". (Also check out the similarly themed photos on Emilie's My Space page. She's got some skillz with the camera.)

I seriously doubt I can convince my other half to go with me to an event called Porn Week even if it is really just "art", but you Brooklyn hipsters go and tell me how it was afterward.

HBO Gets Down With the Git Down

Apparently some of the major media outlets have taken note of my recent rants about how old media needs to transform itself into new media and retool their models or perish.

No doubt due in large part to this blog's massive influence on Hollywood taste and decision-makers, HBO has fired off a bold new shot in the old vs. new media wars.

Never shy to blaze a new trail, the smart people at HBO have switched up their game again, to debut the season 2 premiere of their hot new comedy series, "Flight of the Conchords" a full month early on the comedy website The series premiere will show on HBO starting January 18th.

The very laws of nature are such that all things, mass media included, must eventually evolve or die. HBO has wisely chosen evolution.

Bold and well done, HBO. Maybe your colleagues will take note as the pink slips continue to roll in.

Watch the full season 2 premiere episode of "Flight of the Conchords" right now, right here!:
