I did mention my intrerview with Juliet Simms from Automatic Loveletter before, but now it’s time to finally show our chat that took place in New York back in summer 2010, when the band was about to release their debut studio album ‘Truth or Dare’. In 2012 Juliet appeared on The Voice and now she’s releasing a solo EP, but let’s take a look back when the things just started heating up for her in the first episode of Talk to Mikey.

My NYC vlog episode 2: this time I’m walking around Xmas fair, eating pizza, digging for some goodies at a thrift store and going to see a play.

NYC blog 2013: “The Mutilated”

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog | Leave a comment

It seems to me there’s always an interesting Tennessee Williams play on every time I visit New York. Last time my good friend and a fantastic actress Alison Fraser invited me to see her at ‘In Masks  Outrageous and Austere’ and this Wednesday I saw ‘The Mutilated’ at The New Ohio Theater. The main attraction for me was Mink Stole – who I adore for her over-the-top characters in John Water’s trash classics and her recent  part in ‘All About Evil’ movie (do check it out!).

When you have Mink Stole and Penny Arcade as your leads in a Tennessee Williams play, you do expect the outcome to be loud, kitschy and hilarious – and it’s all those things for sure. But ‘The Mutilated’ is also quite a tragic story filled with the feel of puffy desperation – like a glass of fizzled out champagne. The true drama here doesn’t necessarily come from its heroines less-than-inspiring fates but from the multifarious idea that sometimes the only people who can really ‘get us’ are the ones who we consider our sworn enemies. And the cruel friendship (or charming war for that matter) that these two tragic-yet-charming ladies are having here makes it one hell of a fun ride for the viewers (and sometimes – for themselves, too). It’s campy but never trashy – a true success for the director Cosmin Chivu. The other obvious achievements here include an impressive and clever stage design and several choir numbers that add surprising epic vibe to the narration.

Plus as a nice post-show bonus there’s Tennessee Williams ‘Memoirs’ with John Waters signature that you can buy in the lobby for 20 bucks.

The show’s on until December 1, so hurry up! More info at http://www.newohiotheatre.org/themutilated.htm

NYC blog 2013: ‘Nice to meet you’ by Marco Santaniello

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Travel | Leave a comment

There’s no denying the spirit of Andy Warhol is very much present in New York’s artistic landscape. Every time I visit the city there’s some sort of Warholian action. This time around I got to the opening of the ‘Nice to meet you’ exhibition at Tazza Gallery (547 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001)by self-proclaimed superstar artist Marco Santaniello. Marco’s work takes pop art rules to a whole new level: it’s aggressively colorful, stuffed with pop icons’ portraits and serves as a perfect example of ‘eye candy’ art. The exhibition is small but surprisingly diverse: from the re-imagined portraits of Terry Richardson to New York’s landscapes, from David Bowie to Kate Moss.

The exhibition at Tazza Galllery runs until December 12, so you have plenty of time to get your slice of pop culture.
