It's only a little over a month until the Tribeca Film Festival is back here in my beloved home of New York New York The City That Never Sleeps But Occasionally Gets Real Winded, and I did us a lil' preview of its coming attractions at The Film Experience last night -- check that out right here. I am wary of working myself back up into a fever of "everything's back to normal!'-ness just yet -- I read the papers, I know what is going on in other places -- but here in the city I gotta admit, things are feeling better. And I hope and atheist-pray this trajectory keeps. I have been to a movie theater once already (see below) and tonight one of my best friends of forever, who I haven't seen in nearly two years, will be in town and is coming over for dinner (we're all vaxxed and ready to hug)... really I just plan on copiously weeping the whole time. Anyway I hope y'all are safe, your loved ones are safe, and our new kind of normalcy, whatever it is, is right around the corner...

It seems so weird and unsafe to me. But I also live in a different country and theaters aren’t open yet here because our Covid numbers are so high. I’m not trying to be judgmental I’m just worried. Everyone please be safe. Sending love.
I am not totally ready myself, Anon! I do not disagree. I err hard on the side of caution. And yet here it really does seem to be, for the time being, looking up. My pessimist side is skeptical, believe me! But unless we suddenly swerve backwards due to the variants the vaccines really do seem to be making a real difference here. I just hope and pray they make their way everywhere, to everybody, and there aren't enough anti-vaxx lunatics to fuck it up. You stay safe too, please!
I went with a visiting friend (both fully you-know) to the IFC Center last Sunday for the first time ("Moffie" which was unsettlingly wonderful) and we were the only people in the theater. It was in their smallest space, maybe about 70 seats... and only 7 were not blocked off. It was wonderful!
PS: No concessions, no eating/drinking allowed, masks on.
Who's that guy in the pic?
I went to Nitehawk in Williamsburg 2 weeks ago, saw Nobody, it was great. We had some great food, a whole row to ourselves, there were 3 other people there. Felt as safe as anything else, more safe than a bus or subway.
