The Drunken Canal is one of the handful of media projects in the city that have sprung up in response to the massive online media hegemony, the harmonization of large social media platforms that give the community a global feel, not a local one (though they’ll love you ’em Follow on Instagram), and the overwhelming sense that no one in the media was having fun in the grim 2020 year. Dimes Square’s local media includes Montez Press Radio, a pirate radio station that won’t let you listen to the demand. , And a “natural style” fashion email newsletter, Opulent Tips, written by a GQ staff writer with no fancy formatting. Many of the most interesting new products are in print “because digital spaces are becoming increasingly more polished,” said Richard Turley, a 44-year-old former Bloomberg Businessweek creative director who founded another downtown newspaper, CultureIn 2018.
The view of Dimes Square caught my eye as its privileged social media symbolized a sweeping shift towards safer places. The new Silicon Valley social audio app Clubhouse has shared some of those values. And the choice of print has a political edge. The first issue of the canal has a column made up of a list of names in the “Sorry to hear a canceled” column, with no explanation, “to prevent you from looking silly at a bereavement meeting.” (The second issue included an apology to actor Terry Crew, whose name was misspelled in the first issue and which, in fact, was not canceled in the publisher’s view.) A recent newsprint project called The New Now It is said. , Co-founded by Magazine Paper, declares on its front page that it is “free of charge” “ad-free” and “internet-free”.
The city’s media revolt is often seen in the 1990s, when model and actress Chloe Savane performed a new scene New yorker profileJust before its star turns into the obvious 1995 film “Kids”. Ms. Sevgen, now 46, has an excuse – The Drunken Canal portrays her stylist, Haley Tollens. Ms. Sewanee told me that she is “flattering and looking forward to a children’s rally for all of us.” But the more recent seeds of the current scene are in a podcast that has helped relieve the tensions of leftist populist politics that are as hostile to Hillary Clinton as it is to Donald Trump on the political map – specifically, one called is red Scare, Whose co-host, Dasha Nekrasova, lives near Dimes Square. Ms. Necrasova, 30, said she admired the spirit of The Drunken Canal, although like many of its fans, she hasn’t really been able to get her hands on a copy. She plays a troubled person in the upcoming season of “Succession” and has directed a new feature film rooted in theories about the death of Jeffrey Epstein. The new drunken canal includes the prediction that “DASHA will become the new and improved Chloe Savagen.”
Unprotected sex of “kids” scattered the New York of the 1990s, but bragging about indoor parties was the best way to get feedback from the New York media of the 2020s. Writer and publicist Kathleen Phillips, 30, who lives in a location close to the center of the city’s personalities map, became mildly notorious on Twitter for advertising an abusive attitude during her worst spring.
