Do you have an amazing small apartment?

Well, we want to know about it! We’re collecting reader submissions for our upcoming 2011 Home Design issue. Do you want your pad to be forever immortalized in Time Out New York? Of course you do, why are you even asking yourself that question. Check out last year’s issue for an idea of the awesomeness.

Our theme this go around is small spaces, so we’re interested in studios and one bedrooms that maximize space in creative ways. If you’ve got that kinda pad, introduce yourself and send a few snapshots to apartments@timeoutna.com. That being said, if you live in a castle in Staten Island or an incredible 4 BR in the West Village, we’d like to know about that, too. (We’re voyeurs.)

There are people in life who make you feel alive and most uniquely yourself, and there are places that do the same. New York City: We love you. Here’s to a new week in the greatest city in the world. Make it a good one.

Sounds like the “Hollywood East” nickname is getting batted around again for a reason: Mayor Bloomberg wants to turn our entire city into one big film studio! (Also, put  cameras on every single traffic light, everywhere.)

Have at our Careers issue profile of Silvercup Studios if you’d like to learn about what the streets will look like after Bloomie gets his way. (And don’t run red lights, he’ll know. He will know all.)

True Blood fans may be interested to know that Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse) stars in Griff the Invisible, a new Australian indie film that opens tonight! We chatted with Ry-dawg about the movie, werepanthers and waking up in the early morning hours. Our Film team didn’t much care for Griff, but we found it quite the charmer.

Also, you get to see Ryan talk in Australian accent for almost two hours, which, well, we fully support that.

And just because: SOOKEH SOOKEH!

We like this one too much to not post it as well.

Day Off? Not Impressed.

You should all follow this blog immediately, as certifiably unimpressed New Yorkers. Spock fits right in!

Rubik’s Cake

We are melting. We would like a piece of this cake with a side of one of each of these! We would like to be served the lot of it, on a lovely silver tray, with our feet dangling in a clean, hygienic pool. But not a local NYC river, because they are apparently tainted by feces at the moment. Whoops!
Positive thoughts: Cake and cocktails. Happy Friday!

Something to distract you from your women’s soccer sadface

Oh my god you guys, we are totally obsessed with this “Lists” exhibit at the Morgan Library & Museum. Has anyone seen it? We missed the “Diaries” exhibit that came before it, and are kicking ourselves, hard, in the face, which is really hard to do, and uncomfortable. Going to see “Lists” is on our list of things to do this summer, especially after rereading Amanda Angel’s piece about the show and thinking: We must go, why have we not been, what is wrong with us?

The best thing:

98 items painter Adolf Konrad drew in an illustrated packing list for a 1963 trip to Rome and Egypt, which featured items like six socks (two striped), 24 tubes of paint and one Europe on $5 a Day guidebook.

It’s important to bring your striped socks to Rome, okay? Now we know!

Do you like Mumford & Sons? We certainly do, having written about their rise for some time now. They even visited TONY HQ to perform live! We can’t get enough of those Brits and their banjos.

In the video above, M&S’s supporting act Matthew and the Atlas, who offer the best of M&S and something else that’s very special, are playing live at the Borderline in London. We suggest skipping straight to 3:49 for the band’s performance of “The Waves,” which you need to listen to now — please, drop everything. You will want to hear it about a hundred more times before the day is done.
