After watching this
sex tornado short trailer for Heads & Tails, an indie TV pilot about a handful of bi boys and girls who sleep with the same handful of boys and girls that looks to have been shot at Huckleberry Bar, I have to admit, I am curious!
As self-described, the show “follows seven intertwined New Yorkers grappling with love and relationships as their views on sexuality collide.” The site’s profile then asks, “Can you handle both sides?” I don’t know! After watching that trailer, I don’t think I can? Not that it’s bad or anything but it needs a dog or a grandma or someone to offer a stabilized viewing position where I can be like, OK, she’s off limits, no one’s going to make out with her, or love on her. Otherwise it’s kinda like LOST, and everyone’s fucking Sawyer. Basically, we need a Hurley here. Maybe I’ll go see if one exists later tonight.
Until we hear more on this sloppy love cycle of Hucklesex, we’ll be keeping an eye on the bathrooms. Or our hearts. Because it seems that after all, this story is “really about the messiness of love – no matter whether you’re gay, straight or somewhere in between.” Aw, lessons to be learned!
The filmmakers will be screening the pilot tonight at Huckleberry (588 Grand St.) at 7pm. And yes, they have a Twitter.
Watch two more clips after the jump!

And you can check out four tracks here. Sounds solid, but not all all what you’d expect. (He sings on the first track!). Start with the fourth song, “Feelin’.” We can’t wait to hear the whole record. From Pitchfork:
Kamaal the Abstract, the Q-Tip album that J Records refused to release in 2001, is finally coming out. On September 15, Battery Records will release the heavily experimental mindfuck of an album, which is more of a squelchy jazz-funk record with occasional rapping than an actual rap album. That’s the cover above. Tip, evidently, is very proud of his drapes.
Your many local city council candidates will be out and about tonight in a candidates’ debate for what might be your best and last chance to admire the range of local transportation issues and general affability of our future representatives.
City Council candidates in the 33rd district, including Isaac Abraham, Kenneth Baer, Douglas Biviano, Kenneth Diamondstone, Stephen Levin, Jo Anne Simon, and Evan Thies, will debate transportation, focusing on “the bicycle network, congestion pricing, truck traffic, pedestrian safety and public space,” in an event sponsored by Transportation Alternatives and sponsored by NAG. It starts at 7 and is at Automotive High School (50 Bedford Avenue).
Meanwhile, over in the 34th, Diana Reyna’s supporters are out slapping her signs on construction sites, taking the street artist approach that we’re all so familiar with. Maybe they should get Judith Supine on the case and crown the W’burg bridge?
If you’re not sure which district you live in, use this map to find your home, and come out! It’ll be fun. Local politics is always so dramatic, so don’t fear boredom.
