One of my favorite movies of all time is back on the big screen for one night only...
Friday, June 22nd WILD STYLE - In 1982, a small independent movie written, produced and directed by Charlie Ahearn was released, first in Germany, Japan and Cannes, then finally in Times Square. Now, 25 years after it was released, WILD STYLE is reknowned as a true classic, having inspired countless artists, musicians and writers with its memorable scenes starring the era's most memorable personalities.

VENUES: POWERHOUSE ARENA 6-9

SCREENING AT EMPIRE-FULTON FERRY STATE PARK 8:30

NO TICKETS NECESSARY!

Now, don't get jealous: I have a VHS Copy of the original (thanks to my friend DJ Kuttmastah Supreme) and it has withstood the test of time! Classic Hip Hop!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
