The lack of cell phone service in underground subway stations is finally enjoyable, at least at the Metropolitan Avenue station in Williamsburg. Welcome to The Newsstand, an independent print media take over by way of pop-up. Produced by ALLDAYEVERYDAY and curated by Lele Saveri of the 8-Ball Zine Fair, The Newsstand features over 100 works from independent publishers around the world. This underground space adapts the original subway newsstand format, but instead provides an opportunity to showcase the leading zines and artists’ publications today. The Newsstand is brimming with selections from the city’s best-known specialty bookshops including McNally-Jackson, Dashwood Books, Desert Island, and OHWOW, alongside a range of independent music complete with a vinyl listening station. And to enhance the collaborative effort of the independent art scene, local artists are recruited each day as guest clerks. So if you’re headed over the bridge before July 20th, be sure to stop by and show your support. –Sarah Ryan Hecht

  • En France, le Parti pirate présentera des listes dans six des huit cheap nfl jerseyscirconscriptions, avec pas moins de 30 candidats en Île-de-France et pour les Français à l’étranger. En plus de ça, le mouvement sera présent dans une quinzaine d’autres pays européens.

  • Mais cet appui n’a rien de très étonnant quand on connaît cheap nfl jerseysla proximité entre le site internet et le Parti pirate. Début mai, l’ancien porte-parole de Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde, s’est lancé dans les Européennes. Son programme : défense de l’Internet libre, de la transparence gouvernementale, ou encore favoriser un plus grand respect des droits individuels. Sans surprise, ce candidat avait reçu le soutien du Parti pirate Finlandais.Il portera la bannière du parti pour les élections et sera candidat à la présidence de la Commission européenne avec Amelia Andersdotter.
