Here's what we love about New York: In the same way that no one even bothers to glance at some guy silently (see the iPod) doing a Kermit show on the sidewalk, we walked past Jennifer Tilly filming something on the sidewalk yesterday and people actively ignored her. We only know it was her because of the voice. It's that kind of determined disregard for other people that will actually keep this city what it is even as skyscrapers and money stacks built up through the last decade crumble to create the grimy, crime-infested island of drunk poor people we all fantasized about before moving here and where James Murphy will be king.
