    Follow the Documentary at NYC: Lower East Side Exploration. Season 1 Episode 2 Subscribe to our Youtube Page here Manhattan is full of tales. With all its storied neighborhoods, it's easy to forget that It's also an island. The lower East Side is an island unto itself, a the part of the island where the cobblestone peaks out from the asphalt. Don't let its "turn of the century" charm fool you. I'm confident that the Whole Foods and other niche micro-shops will serve as adequate backdrops to the new waves of thinkers, ready to change the world. Because you can't spell Earth without art.

    Its almost comically referenceable, with the whole “Is It local” movement, and the references to Portlands proclivity to be overcast, 95% of the time. What makes Portland so lovable and fascinating is paradoxical nature; like the fact that it is both a tiny city and yet rife with urban sprawl, or that while it is completely urban, the entire city is closely surrounded by pristine natural wonders. The dualistic aspect of Portland is what makes it so lovable. How could you not love a city that

Still one of my favorites. “Set Range to target… One Ping Only” That is the Sound of active Sonar. Sonar is actually an acronym representing Sound and Range; Basic physics attests that sound travels much farther in water, so much so th

    Artifications: Season 1 Episode 1: Denver As 2016 comes To a close, the city of Denver prepares for its “First Friday” of the new year. For the last number of years, this popular city-wide event has gone on, every first Friday without issue. and while artists and patrons alike have celebrated this for years without much thought, the scene is experiencing a backlash. The DIY flair of the burgeoning arts community has come under fire as of late. Some say it is a direct result of the “Ghostship” fire, that resulted in the death of 36 people at their art loft space in Oakland, California. Let's explore how a beloved Community can both exist and thrive as a larger society tries to find the right balance between “safe space” and “creative space”.
