Abe Vigoda isn't dead

The actor Abe Vigoda from 70s/80s sitcoms Barney Miller and Fish is still alive. If you're interested in keeping tabs on his living status, you can check daily at

However, if you're interested in seeing the band Abe Vigoda, you can go see them tonight in Brooklyn. I'm looking forward to a fun show. It's been a while since I've been to a rock show, with comedy shows dominating my social calendar, and it's about damn time. Looking forward to jumping around and sweating on strangers tonight at Death By Audio.

Phoning it in

Andrew Andrew, popular iPad DJs on East Village Radio—and new friends of mine—are "iPhoning it in." In other words, they've been hired by Time Out New York to watch NYC Fringe shows and immediately upload video reviews. And they're doing it all on their iPhone 4. It's more like an exit poll than a review, but it's pretty cool to phone in a video review. Andrew Andrew have the persona and depth to entertain and inform, but I sincerely hope that this practice is not democratized.

Tonight Andrew Andrew iPod DJs are hosting a dance party, and (SPOILER!) they've asked me to be their special surprise musical guest. I'm going to light up the room with a little "SYD."
