east village idiot

Chris is lives in New York City's East Village and originally hails from an often-overlooked New England state. He works in some sort of advertising job, although there's no clear answer to the question, "just what would you say you do around here?" On the side, Chris might call himself a "freelance writer." But then again, all bloggers are freelance writers.

This blog has no mission. It serves no purpose other than to entertain its readers. If you are not entertained by the content on this blog, then it probably wasn't meant for you.

He doesn't like to brag, but his work on this blog has been featured on Gawker, Manhattan Users Guide, Wonkette,, Fishbowl NY, Gothamist, the New York Times' Cityroom blog, Curbed, and a bunch of other super-awesome web sites. One blogger once called him "a national treasure." But, you know, he doesn't like to brag.

Chris' favorite topics of discussion range from New York City pedestrian etiquette and grammatical correctness to sports to bar hopping and his favorite New York newspaper.

[How To] Download from Deezer

Deezer is a site where you can search for english songs, create playlists and listen to them. And now, you can download as well, at least unofficially. This method is for Firefox(1). Here are the steps:

  1. Install DownloadHelper add-on and restart Firefox.
  2. Open 'Customize Toolbar' dialog, find the icon for DownloadHelper and drag it onto the toolbar at the top.
  3. Right click on the icon -> Preferences -> MediaReq tab -> add 'php' as a supported extension. [Thanks John]
  4. Go to, play a song that you want to download, and you should see DownloadHelper's icon being animated (spinning) now.
  5. Click on the down arrow on the icon (not on the icon itself), then click on cacheDiffusion.php and in the Save file dialog, name it to whatever.mp3.

Note that it is not possible to download more than one song (like all the songs in a playlist) at a time from this site.

That's it.

SSUpload and Cinematube

The Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. (MPAA), on behalf of the major Hollywood movie studios, filed lawsuits in federal court in Los Angeles yesterday against and – web sites that facilitate copyright infringement on the Internet.

Sites like Cinematube and Ssupload contribute to and profit from rampant copyright infringement by identifying, posting, organizing, and indexing links to infringing content found on the Internet that users can then view on-demand by visiting these illegal sites.

"No matter how you slice it, the sole purpose of these sites is to disseminate and profit from creative content that has been illegally reproduced and distributed. We will continue to scour the Internet for these illegal sites, and through lawsuits such as these we are putting illegal Web operators on notice that they are not above the law and will face serious consequences for their activities," said MPAA executive vice president and director of worldwide anti-piracy operations John Malcolm.

Cinematube and Ssupload both highlight on their sites the availability of the latest in pirated movies that are all too often still in theatrical release. Both sites enjoy significant profits via third party advertisers and user donations. It is estimated that Cinematube - believed to be operated by Georgia resident Tien Tran - averages more than 24,000 unique users per day who view more than 85,000 pages of content. Ssupload – whose servers are located in Scottsdale, Ariz. - averages an estimated 55,000 unique daily visitors who view over 190,000 pages of content per day.

Civil lawsuits were filed against Cinematube and Ssupload in United States District Court in Los Angeles for damages and injunctive relief for violations under the United States Copyright Act of 1976. Yesterday's filings follow three lawsuits filed by the studios against similar sites earlier this summer:, and The worldwide motion picture industry, including foreign and domestic producers, distributors, theaters, video stores and pay-per-view operators lost $18.2 billion in 2005 as a result of piracy –over $7 billion of which is attributed to Internet piracy and more than $11 billion attributed to hard goods piracy including bootlegging and illegal copying.

Atkinson On Film


I'm Roland Atkinson, a Professor of Psychiatry at the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. Before coming to Oregon, I trained and worked in West Los Angeles for several years.  What a feast for a film nut!  Katherine Hepburn sitting down in front of me at a Saturday matinee. Spotting Burt Lancaster or Lee Marvin at the old Bel Air Country Store (gone now, sad to say).  At UCLA, taking care of Alfred Hitchcock's wife, Alma, during her annual medical checkup when I was an intern; and hearing Dr. Ralph Greenson discuss his psychiatric treatment of the late Marilyn Monroe. 

I see 200 or more feature films a year, counting theater screenings and DVD/VHS. I review films - from a psychiatric and psychological perspective - for several professional publications, including the nationally distributed monthly, Clinical Psychiatry News, published by the Elsevier International Medical News Group. My reviews are enriched in style and substance through conversations with my partner, Jo Ann Weaver, a discerning film observer in her own right and a terrific editor.

I have also advised advanced student and professional scriptwriters on creating authentic portrayals of psychiatric and substance use disorders and their treatment through a pro bono program sponsored by the Entertainment Industries Council. E.I.C. is a non-profit, Hollywood-based organization supported by the commercial film and television industries; its efforts to advocate for authenticity of substance abuse portrayals in films and teleplays have been supported by grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Michael Eric Dyson

Dubbed "the Hip-Hop Intellectual" by critics and fans for his pioneering explorations of rap music in the academy and beyond, Michael Eric Dyson is uniquely situated to probe the most compelling and controversial dimensions of hip-hop culture. Know What I Mean? addresses salient issues within hip hop: the creative expression of degraded youth that has garnered them global exposure; the vexed gender relations that have made rap music a lightning rod for pundits; the commercial explosion that has made an art form a victim of its success; the political elements that have been submerged in the most popular form of hip hop; and the intellectual engagement with some of hip hop's most influential figures.
