What do we do here?
Lots of stuff. Recently, ANIMAL trolled Supreme, got love from Rachel Maddow, ruled the Vine game and reported from the front lines of #OccupyGezi. We interviewed artists, made mixtapes, documented graffiti in the UK and Egypt, looked into this Abramović thing, made a “Merry Indie Xmas” and shot the official “Rent Is Too Damn High” music video. We’re about dogs, bikes, street artists, hackers, troublemakers and “rap quotes.” When historic bars close, important art exhibits open or new foods are invented, we’re there.
Our interns investigated New York’s alternative libraries, lit, “insane” art, gallon smashing, famous last tweets and the New Aesthetic pizza. They made a Russian dash-cam super-cut, designed minimalist icons for subway deaths and camped out in a mini art dome in the park. You in?

Finding fresh/inspiring content online/offline
Writing many blog posts
Writing original stories (Journalism)
