This is brilliant.
New York Post: High Line is a Lust Cause
"Note to parents strolling the High Line: Don't let your kids look up.
The Meatpacking District's newly opened, much-touted urban park along an elevated, former railroad trestle has unwittingly turned into a peep show near The Standard hotel, as randy hotel guests perform sex acts in front of floor-to-ceiling hotel windows."

And this Friday, Burnlab's evil[er] twin organization Dethlab is thrilled to present MOTOR live at The Works Detroit.
Read Walter Wasacz's excellent fortnightly electronic music column The Subterraneans: The pious beat | And the gods shtupped... including the following bit about Death Rave Detroit:
... Of course, no juxtaposition of Greek and/or Roman gods with electronic dance music fun can exclude Detroit. We’ve turned the local rave prototype into a global institution that begat the annual Movement festival. Finally on firm ground, thanks to Paxahau’s promotional hustle now combined with creative leadership by the incomparable Carl Craig, we feel good about the future as we look forward to May 2010. But, damn, what do we do in the interim? Plenty, actually. Take your pick between weeklies and monthlies programmed by FreshCorp, Proper | Modulation, Macho City, Hot Pot and Sin-de-kat, among others. But for local hardcore slaves, one upcoming event stands out above all — the return of the Franco-American electro-metalists named Motor, fresh off a European tour with Depeche Mode.
Comprised of native Minnesotan Bryan Black and Parisian Mr. No, Motor released the full-lengths Klunk and Unhuman on Mute before signing with T. Raumschmiere’s Berlin-based Shitkatapult label for the newly-issued Metal Machine. The music is hard, heavy and now muscular enough to fill an entire stadium with evil rhythmic tremors. Resident Advisor calls some of the new material "almost like KISS gone rave," which might be slightly over the top. But just slightly. We recommend you download "Schism" or "Death Rave" onto your iPhone, put on your headphones and jump up and down on your bed for hours on end. Or better yet, experience it live this Friday at the Works.
Motor comes to town courtesy of Dethlab, Detroit’s original gods and goddesses of the dark electro arts. Michael Doyle, Bethany Shorb and David Blunk ll, who joined the team last year, have built their own distinct scene through selective programming and execution, welcoming Fixmer/McCarthy, Solvent, Lowfish and noise-pop crossover artists like 800Beloved, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and Spectral Mornings into their seditionist fold. Come early; contort yourself until late. Very late. The show is at 10 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 7; $10 for 18 and over. The Works is located at 1846 Michigan Ave., Detroit.
