A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

You can still get into the Met and AMNH for free or a dime or whatever, but you have to stand online and act the supplicant and make your obeisance to do it -- and you can't see special shows or the space show at the Planetarium.

I knew I had heard this Prostration To The 35 Buddhas before.....so I googled it and naturally the first result was another Trouble playlist!

NYC Museums - if ya have any type of official looking educator ID and an appropriate mailing address .. ya can often finagle a free pass in NYC Ms by saying "I am considering a class trip and would like to do a 'Pre-Visit'. Tell them ya need it for 2 = 1 for yer student teacher and bring a friend.

There's CityPass that gets you discounts to a bunch of things, but it's not cheap either. And the NYCID card can get you a free one-year membership at a bunch of museums. Once.

Ooooo, nice bird!

Handy - that is true, but sort of NYer info .. out of towers do not often know that.. Last time I went to AMNH .. I told the people around us ... also.. give the tkt to someone on the way out ... they can say ... "I need to go back in and look for my daughter/son.."

A friend gets into MOMA at a reduced rate -- you have to show proof of being part of an exhibition somewhere in the last three years. Kind of an "artistic license." I avoid MOMA because it's a cash register (and I get vertigo on the walkways)

How much is Criterion? I'm at subscription max, so something's gotta go
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am The Oscar:

Chiming in to say that Criterion is absolutely worth the subscription-- immaculately curated and algorithm-free. Mubi does a lot of very cool work as well.
  9:40am Mark Williams:

so many online movie-watching options. The Metrograph in NYC alone gives you options that are curated on an on-going basis. Criterion obviously quite good. Frankly, why people do not turn their back on Amazon et al is why we can't turn the corner on corporate control of our politics. De-colonize yourself.

Whenever someone tells me that they can't justify subscribing to both Netflix and Criterion, my advice to them, as a film critic and as a friend, is to ditch Netflix. Apart from the original stuff there's just so little there these days.

Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:43am Matt Fiveash:

Hey Trouble! Definitely get Criterion, you won't regreat it. I was getting ready to email you about this actually: they currently have a "Reggae in Film" series, with Harder They Come, Rockers, etc- anyway I watched a movie in that series called Babylon, from 1980. You turned me on to that Lovers Rock movie last year, and I think Babylon must have had a heavy influence on Lovers Rock, it works very similar terrain. It was banned/supressed at the time and just recently resurfaced...
Avatar This Is The Modern World with Trouble Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:44am Matt Fiveash:

...but that aside, Criterion Channel is an embarassment of riches. Can't recommend it more.

Neither Criterion nor Kanopy works with my TV/AppleTV-box-thingy combination, so I have to watch them small on my laptop, which is kind of a drag.

  10:28am morphe':

Elevator to the Gallows ... a true Bklyn tale from the 70s that only came out in the 201??? .. the older brother of a friend was having an affair with the lady from the candy store (jukebox, pinball, egg creams) .. her husband, a low level mafia dude, found them grouping in the back room after closing. They killed him (self defense?) and dumped him in the trunk of his car in Coney Island... The cops thought it was part of an ongoing feud as a # of mafia bodies were found around then. The guy must have told somebody at somebody because 30+ years later, someone told the cops .. he got arrested, but the story then fell off the radar? Charges dropped??? Self-Defense? Time limits???
