Sweaty Friday: Kelli Rudick, Rooftop Films and an Open Bar

It looks like it’s working up to being a steamy, muggy friday here in NYC.  Gross. This is the kind of day that makes you want to do nothing more than stay inside with the AC, a ton of water and the Freaks & Geeks box set, until the sun goes down.

IFC has recently released another gem to fill up your afternoon of hiding from the heat: The 50 Greatest Movie Trailers of All Time. #1, Unsurprisingly, is Alien, but there is a pretty eclectic mix of stuff that follows-South Park:Bigger, Longer and Uncut, and the not-yet-released Spike Jonze adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are, that’s sure to get assess in seats.  There are some really obvious selections ( Pulp Fiction, The Shining) and some weird choices (Garden State, Face/Off, Red Eye) which all go to show that cutting a trailer is almost an art form in itself and can be deceptively misleading about a film’s actual content.  Enjoy.

At night though, when the sun goes down, the best place to be in heat like this is a rooftop, so as I mentioned yesterday, head over to the American Can Factory in Gowanus and check Kelli Rudick’s amazing performance courtesy of Sound Fix ,  before settling in for a movie and then open bar, courtesy of Rooftop Films.

Like most kids, Ashley grew up in New Jersey. Unlike most kids the Friedman's televison set acted as a third parent, imbuing young Ashley with the stern moral values of Claire Huxtable, the dramatic tendencies of Brenda Walsh and the earnest hopefulness of the blond kid on Silver Spoons. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence Ashley made her way to the Park Slope area of Brooklyn where she can currently be found reading foreign fashion magazines, scouring ebay for vintage heels, eating out in restaurants and otherwise stretching her meager income as far as it will go in NYC.
