(Director Ace Norton, right, and a stern faced friend)
It’s not like us to brag (usually) but we’re having such fun at Cine-Shorts it feels like a disservice to keep it to ourselves. This week we hosted epic music video and commercial director Ace Norton. The high energy crowd cheered each screening as though it was the first. They were also very into playing ping pong in between films.

Norton’s eclectic selection, Anything and Everything, comprised Scissor Sisters (“Any Which Way”), Simian Mobile Disco’s (“Hustler”), Sebastien Tellier (“La Ritournelle”) and an amazing Soundscape created for Dolby.

The next installment of Cine-Shorts will be July 19 and features the work of Jeremy Rall.
Jake & Ana
For a while now, I’ve been hearing about this killer monthly party called One Step Beyond that happens uptown at the American Museum of Natural History. You know, the place where that big blue whale hangs out in near proximity to the shooting stars in the Hayden Planetarium? Anyway, I’ve been hesitant to go for a few reasons, but the biggest one being that I can never find my passport which I need to go that far uptown.
But this month, when I received the invite in my YSL clad inbox, I changed my mind for one reason and one reason only. The Scissor Sisters. You heard me right. If anyone was going to force me to brave the journey north, it’s going to be Jake and Ana.
This week, the crazy duo make their very first hometown DJ appearance at the museum with returning DJ guests Lauren Flax and Activaire. The only thing to do now is buy my tickets and dig through my archives for that vintage Rei Kawakubo look so that the hipster kids don’t mistake me for their pharmacist. See you on the Stan D’ancefloor!
