UI is Living an Indie NYC lifestyle

It's the last Wednesday of the month, so that means Uncensored Interview is back to guest blog with 10 Links A Day. Enjoy!

Perhaps we here at Uncensored Interview are a little biased towards New York City. I mean, we ARE based smack-dab in the middle of super-trendy Noho, and most, if not all of us live, eat, drink, and poop here almost everyday. But even if you’re from a far away state, or worse yet, New Jersey, you’re probably bound to visit someday, so we figured that a list of 10 sites that make indie-living in New York City more convenient would be useful to everyone. Yes, even Bon Jovi fans. Sorry Jersey, The Shark had to do it.

Today’s 10linksday: Livin’ indie in NYC

  1. Free NYC
    Who doesn’t love free stuff? Besides rich people and Republicans, of course. Free NYC lists upcoming free and dirt cheap events all over the city, from concerts to films to stand-up comedy to even friggin’ operas. Free operas! What is the world coming to??

  2. Freecycle
    Yes, this site has been featured here a few times already, but that’s only because it’s so awesome, we want everyone and their mothers to know about it. Get rid of the stuff just lying around your house taking up space, or pick up a chaise lounger that someone else has no need for, absolutely free of charge. It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. Incidentally enough, I actually got some free sliced bread off of a Freecycle user last week.

  3. Menu Pages
    Looking for a good vegan cheesesteak in the East Village? You could always ask your pal Fred, but the last place he sent you to gave you vicious diarrhea, and do you really want to take that chance again? Menu Pages lists every kind of cuisine imaginable by neighborhood (even Brooklyn!), and offers user reviews, so you won’t find yourself praying to the porcelain god later at the Telenovela Star show.

  4. New York On Tap
    The Zagat guide for boozehounds, NYOT is the ULTIMATE guide to bar hopping around New York City, chronicling every single watering hole in the 4 boroughs (sorry Staten Island) and Hoboken, as well as directions on how to drunkenly stumble your way there. What it won’t tell you is whether that hot chick smiling at you at the bar is into you or not. You’ll just have to find that out on your own, hombre.

  5. Oh My Rockness
    Indie rock shows are as prevalent as homeless people in NYC (only they smell slightly better), so think about just how impossible it is to document every single one going on. That’s just what the wizards over at Oh My Rockness somehow do. So if you wanna know when Shy Child or Senryu are playing at Pianos consult OMR.

  6. Film Forum
    We here at Uncensored Interview aren’t just about indie music, we also love us some great indie films (we’re pretentious snobs, what can we say?), and when it comes to exquisite, top of the line indie-film far, nothing beats Film Forum. Of course, you’ll actually have to physically GO THERE to see any of the films advertised on the site, but what more do you want from us, legs?

  7. Brooklyn Indie Market
    Just as we’re biased towards New York City, yours truly The Shark is equally as biased towards Brooklyn, the all-knowing, all-encompassing borough where he was born and raised. And if you love awesome clothing that flatters your lats and pecs from up-and-coming designers that won’t cost you next month’s rent, you go to the Brooklyn Indie Market. Yes, you can even find some stylishly priced skin-tight jeans (ugh!) to show off at Studio B tonight.

  8. New York City Downtown Boathouse
    Indie rock kids need exercise to stay ultra thin and fit into those tight jeans they bought at the Brooklyn Indie Market, and there’s no better exercise than kayaking. Scratch that, there is a better exercise - free kayaking! Just show up to one of the locations listed on the website on a weekend or holiday, and one of the kind (but somewhat hippy) volunteers will gladly shovel you and your friends into a kayak and set you off on the Hudson River for some fun in somewhat murky waters. Just make sure you’re up to date on your tetanus shots.

  9. Ride The City
    If you’re like me, then the idea of paying $4.50 a gallon to drive through the traffic-choked streets of NYC seems about as appealing as seeing a Nickelback/Daughtry acoustic double-bill. You also enjoy not getting killed while peddling your way down the hazardous Flatbush Ave Extension towards the Manhattan Bridge bike lane. Ride The City will help map the safest biking route to and from anywhere in the city for you, and it even lets you offer your own suggestions. Unfortunately “use your blinker, a-hole” isn’t one of them.

  10. Uncensored Interview
    Yes, I’m blatantly promoting our website, but honestly, if you’re a fan of indie music, or just good music in general, there’s really no better place to connect with your favorite artists, discover new ones, or just hear some weird, weird “did-he-really-just-say-that” stuff:

June Book Club

We are really excited to bring you this month's installment of our book club. Really it's a book selection list, but who are we kidding, it's more fun to be in a club :) Lots of research went into this month's club selections. We think we have brought you a diverse list of what everyone is talking about. Go ahead and click on the link to get these reads for your upcoming afternoon at the pool. Feel free to let 10 Links A Day know what you would like to appear in future postings by emailing us at

Today's 10 Links a Day: June Book Club

  1. Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life, by Tim Russert
    Veteran newsman and Meet the Press moderator Tim Russert is known for his direct and unpretentious style and in this charming memoir he explains why. Russert's father is profiled as a plainspoken World War II veteran who worked two blue-collar jobs while raising four kids in South Buffalo but the elder Russert's lessons on how to live an honest, disciplined, and ethical life are shown to be universal. Big Russ and Me, a sort of Greatest Generation meets Tuesdays with Morrie, could easily have become a sentimental pile of mush with a son wistfully recalling the wisdom of his beloved dad. But both Russerts are far too down-to-earth to let that happen and the emotional content of the book is made more direct, accessible, and palatable because of it.

  2. Wisdom of Our Fathers: Lessons and Letters from Daughters and Sons by Tim Russert
    Surprised by the overwhelming and heartfelt reception to Big Russ and Me(2004), Russert follows that memoir of his relationship with his father with a collection of letters he received recounting relationships between fathers and their sons and daughters. Russert, host of NBC's Meet the Press, received 60,000 letters and e-mails from readers with their own touching memories of filial love. Interspersed throughout, Russert recollects moments as a son and as a father, as well as conversations with famous figures, including Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and news reporter Maria Shriver, about their fathers.

  3. Netherland: A Novel by Joseph O'Neill
    O'Neill has published a rambling account of one family's encounter with the attacks upon the World Trade Center and its impact upon the marrage of Rachel and Hans van de Broek. The writing is riveting and compelling as Hans is the first person narrator who tells his story in a stream of consciousness. For the reader looking for a linear story, this is not that novel. But it is also a novel about cricket (the sport), the men who play it, and Hans' friendship with Chuck Ramkissoon of Trinidad. This opens up the novel to be a tale of New York City surviving 9-11. This is one of the few times where a book is too short.

  4. The Chris Farley Show: A Biography in Three Acts Tom Foley & Tanner Colby
    You don't have to be a rabid Chris Farley fan to enjoy The Chris Farley Show, an honest, endearing oral biography about a truly funny, deeply troubled addict that is as likely to make you cry as it is to make you laugh out loud. Made up mostly of excerpts from intimate interviews with family, childhood friends, famous castmates, and writers, The Chris Farley Show is a vivid portrait of a performer, told plainly by the people who knew him best at every stage of his life.

  5. Ghosts Among Us: Uncovering the Truth About the Other Side by James Van Praagh
    Van Praagh, the New York Times bestselling author and co-executive producer of the CBS series The Ghost Whisperer, shares his knowledge and life experience about ghosts, a subject that can seem to many of us both bizarre and terrifying. But when the world beyond is explained fully by an experienced guide, dismissal and apprehension can be turned into knowledge and inspiration. With incredible true ghost stories and surprising details about how ghosts actively participate in our lives, Van Praagh challenges us to question our perceptions and shows us how we can live more fully through understanding the world of spirits. Including eerily accurate readings, the author's development as a medium, and detailed how-to information, Ghosts Among Us is an all-encompassing guide to the supernatural.

  6. Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler
    When Chelsea Handler needs to get a few things off her chest, she appeals to a higher power -- vodka. You would too if you found out that your boyfriend was having an affair with a Peekapoo or if you had to pretend to be honeymooning with your father in order to upgrade to first class. Welcome to Chelsea's world -- a place where absurdity reigns supreme and a quick wit is the best line of defense. In this hilarious, deliciously skewed collection, Chelsea mines her past for stories about her family, relationships, and career that are at once singular and ridiculous.

    Sidenote - 10 Links A day absolutely loves Chelsea Handler and recommends everyone reading this review not only to buy the book but to tune into her show on E!

  7. What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception by Scott McClellan
    Scott McClellan was one of a few Bush loyalists from Texas who became part of his inner circle of trusted advisers, and remained so during one of the most challenging and contentious periods of recent history. Drawn to Bush by his commitment to compassionate conservatism and strong bipartisan leadership, McClellan served the president for more than seven years, and witnessed day-to-day exactly how the presidency veered off course.

    In this refreshingly clear-eyed book, written with no agenda other than to record his experiences and insights for the benefit of history, McClellan provides unique perspective on what happened and why it happened the way it did, including the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, Washington's bitter partisanship, and two hotly contested presidential campaigns. He gives readers a candid look into who George W. Bush is and what he believes, and into the personalities, strengths, and liabilities of his top aides. Finally, McClellan looks to the future, exploring the lessons this presidency offers the American people as we prepare to elect a new leader.

  8. Just Do It: How One Couple Turned Off the TV and Turned On Their Sex Lives for 101 Days (No Excuses!)
    Creeping into middle-age and saddled with work deadlines, child-rearing, homemaking, and fourteen years of togetherness, an ordinary, happy but harried couple set an outlandish goal: to have sex for 101 consecutive days—no excuses (not even the flu, late-night child wanderings, or flat-out exhaustion).

    What ensued is by turns hilarious, tender, and seductive, including sexual romps in hotels (both cheap and classy), at an ashram, in a basement, atop boulders and unstable easy chairs, but most often in their own bedroom, which they dubbed the “sex den.” As Doug and Annie Brown literally screwed their way through months of a cold Colorado winter, they turned up the heat by attending the Adult Entertainment Expo in Vegas (the Oscars of the porn world); taking Bikram “hot” yoga to get limber; and stocking up on candles, Viagra (just in case), lube, lingerie, and sex toys galore.

    The jolt that every marriage needs and longs for, Just Do It proves that even when it feels like there’s never enough time or energy, trust Annie and Doug...THERE IS.

  9. Intercourse: Stories by Robert Olen Butler
    A provocative new short-story collection from Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler, Intercourse delightfully reveals what goes through a person's mind at a crucial moment—during sex. Smart, provocative, subtle, and erotic, each story is a many faceted gem. Butler dazzles and entertains as he channels the most intimate thoughts of 50 couples, including: Adam & Eve, Bonnie & Clyde, Pocahontas & John Smith, Richard Milhous Nixon & Pat Nixon, Walt Whitman & Oscar Wilde, Elvis Presley & Holly Singleton (admirer), Princess Diana & Prince Charles, William Jefferson Clinton & Hillary Diane Rodham, Santa Claus & Ingebirgitta (elf)

  10. The Endless City by Ricky Burdett & Deyan Sudjic
    More and more people are moving into towns and cities to live and work, which is altering the urban/rural balance of countries worldwide. THE ENDLESS CITY is an unparalleled study of the growth of six of the world's international cities (New York, Shanghai, London, Mexico City, Johannesburg, and Berlin), exploring key structural, social, and economic factors. This book was overseen by the London School of Economics, and features extensive research and coherent texts by world-renowned professionals in the field of urban planning and development. The information is presented in a comprehensive and visually compelling sequence, enabling quick and efficient reference as well as offering material that is exciting to study. Each city is examined individually in its own chapter as well as being analyzed comparatively in an observational chapter. THE ENDLESS CITY is authoritatively edited by Ricky Burdett and Deyan Sudjic in collaboration with the London School of Economics and the Urban Age Project, an expanding international organization seeking a new urban agenda for global cities.

World Refugee Day, June 20, 2008

On June 20, we celebrate World Refugee Day. This year, events around the world will focus on the fundamental need for protection. For some, this means economic security; for others, protection is freedom from violence and persecution. On World Refugee Day, UNHCR will turn all of our attention to the millions of refugees who live without material, social and legal protection.

Protection is also about raising awareness. We cannot protect refugees if their plight remains invisible. On World Refugee Day, we will highlight the universal nature of protection. Not only are refugees protected all around the globe, but the responsibility for protection is equally global.

Ultimately, protection is a challenge that knows no borders. Neither can it be left to a single agency to provide. On World Refugee Day, UNHCR is launching a global call for action. We want to promote engagement at the grassroots level, in local communities, workplaces and online. Only through a global network of supporters can we meet the manifold needs of protection.

Today's 10linksaday: World Refugee Day - please see below for more information regarding this cause. We all can do our part!

When to Send a Woman Flowers

Welcome guest blogger Gregory from for providing today’s guest post. 10 Links A Day would like your feedback on this guest blog. Be sure to leave comments below.

Now, on to Greg's posting... (which is actually an excerpt from a longer article)

Knowing when to send a woman flowers is just as important as knowing when NOT to send them. As a midlife bachelor, over the years I’ve learned that the best reasons for sending flowers include typical special occasions (like birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day). Another good reason to send flowers is if you need some extra help emerging from the dreaded doghouse. And finally – a great romantic reason to send flowers to a woman is the morning after the very first time you have become intimate with her!

Now just as important as knowing when to send flowers is also knowing WHEN NOT to send them. Don’t send flowers during a breakup. You also don’t want to send flowers simply to impress a woman – many guys do this, and it sets a bad materialistic precedent.

Today's 10linksaday: Links you can use for sending flowers, deciding to send
flowers, or doing things that may cause you to send flowers:

  1. Try Virtual Flowers

  2. – online flower retailer

  3. – online flower retailer

  4. - Article on how to choose flowers for a woman

  5. – The Secret Meaning of Flowers You Give

  6. Don’t Send Flowers – send a SpaFinder gift certificate

  7. instead go here!

  8. Alternative Point of View – Send Flowers CHEAP

  9. Send a Plant instead of Flowers

  10. Send an Orchid

Tired of the Gas Prices?

Holy %#@$&! We filled up our gas tank over the weekend, OMG!!!! $4.50 per gallon for gas! Immediately, we felt like we had to bring our readers tips on how to save money at the pump this summer. Sure we can tell you to stay home, but that's no fun or is that a realistic option. Safe driving! See you on the road!

Today's 10linksaday: Keeping $ in your pocket at the pump

  1. Go to the gas stations nearby that offer the cheapest gas. Know before you go, by hitting these sites first: Cheap Gas, Gas Buddy, Gas Price Watch

  2. Purchase a GPS with Traffic Info and Gas Prices: Garmin makes a few models that do just this: Garmin nüvi 880, Garmin nüvi 780 and Garmin nüvi 680.

  3. Under inflated tires require more gas to go. Check the air in your tires with this handy Programmable Digital Tire Gauge If you are not sure how much tire pressure your car requires, look on the inside drivers door or ask a local service station attendant.

  4. Join automobile/gas reward credit card loyalty programs. can help you to compare the various gas rewards credit cards in one place.

  5. Our favorite tip thus far is this one- you HAVE to read this article: The title alone says proceed with caution: As Seen on TV (The old adage - if it's too good to be true well.... we'll let you decide.)

  6. Share a cab with someone - go here to set up a ride share.

  7. Host a video conference instead of traveling. All you need are two web cams. Retrevo thinks getting a high quality web cam like Logitech's Quickcam Pro 9000 or Apple's iSight camera makes the experience much more enjoyable with higher resolution images, faster frame rates and better audio with echo suppression. Features you just don't get with less expensive web cams.

  8. Purchase a new iPod, and take a walk, saves on gas and you get in shape.

  9. Map out a plan of attack for your errands ahead of time. This can prevent wasting fuel and time. With alternative routes you can prevent unnecessary stops at traffic lights and more importantly sitting in traffic jams.

  10. Investigate ways to improve your gas mileage.

Celebrity Fashion Lines

Celebrities have a creative way of making everything they wear look fabulous. Whether they're hitting the red carpet, or dressed down running an errand, they seem to make everything they wear look great. As a result, that makes many people infatuated with celebrity fashion and the hottest trends they set. Many fans ask themselves where do the celebs shop? How did they chose their color scheme? Why a short mini with peep toe shoes?

So, with all of the media attention and paparazzi clamoring over the stars, it would make perfect sense that they create their own fashion inspired clothing line. Knowing full well, people will buy whatever they design, create, or simply put their name on. That certainly equates to $$$. Smart marketing can make a star BIG bucks. Therefore, you can only guess what today's posting is about... 10 Celebrity Fashion lines you need to know!
