What, Exactly, Is Lurking In NYC Puddles—and Can It Actually Hurt You?
One of the most common concerns of the New York City pedestrian is the mysterious water that sometimes drips onto your head. Is it rain? Air conditioner drippings? A rich person spitting on you from their penthouse apartment? Who can say for sure? Still, as summer wanes and air conditioners are put away for the season, those random droppings happen less frequently. But there is another watery menace that New Yorkers are concerned with year-round: the mini-moats that mysteriously appears below your feet right when you’re stepping off a curb. This water is known, colloquially, as “puddles”; once you’ve lived in New York for a few years and stepped in about 10,000 of them, it’s impossible not to wonder what exactly lurks below their oily surfaces.

Small Towns Near NYC To Visit Right Now
It is a truth universally acknowledged (by New Yorkers, anyway) that summer can be a particularly icky time to be in the city, what with the crowded subways, that smell that permeates the air, and the general sense of sweat-induced misery that blankets the city once temperatures start to rise. But instead of sweating in your apartment, why not get out of town for a day or two? Thanks to our fair city's location—close to New England, New Jersey, the Hamptons, and the Hudson Valley and Catskills—there's a bevy of charming towns you can visit the next time you need a break from NYC.

WeChat Restricts Controversial Video Face-swapping App Zao For Security Risks
Zao went viral in China this weekend for its realistic face-swapping videos, but after controversy about its user policy, WeChat restricted access to the app on its messaging platform.

Now Facebook Says It May Remove Like Counts
Facebook could soon start hiding the Like counter on News Feed posts to protect users’ from envy and dissuade them from self-censorship. Instagram is already testing this in 7 countries including Canada and Brazil, showing a post’s audience just a few names of mutual friends who’ve Liked it instead of the total number. The idea is to prevent users from destructively comparing themselves to others and possibly feeling inadequate if their posts don’t get as many Likes. It could also stop users from deleting posts they think aren’t getting enough Likes or not sharing in the first place. [MORE]

Skrillex Hits 'Midnight Hour' With Ty Dolla $ign And Boys Noize
For his first official single since 2017, Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex) has linked with US rapper Ty Dolla $ign and his longtime production partner Boys Noize to create 'Midnight Hour'. The track is blending of sharp house and silky r'n'b, which is being hailed as "a departure for all involved." This isn't the first time that Skrillex and Boys Noize have linked this year. Back at the start of June, the pair revived their Dog Blood project for the first time since 2013 to release the new four-track EP 'Turn Off The Lights'.

Poo Bear)' in Skrillex’s discography and the producer has given his fans every reason to expect more new material before the end of the year. [MORE]

Kanye West's New Album 'Jesus Is King' Drops This September
Kim Kardashian has let the cat out of the bag after posting a photo of what appears to be her husband Kanye West's tracklist for his forthcoming album. Appearing with the title 'Jesus Is King', the photo of the tracklist - which is placed next to a bible - also shows a release date of September 27 at the bottom. This potential LP or project will follow the release of Kanye West's eighth studio album 'Ye' which dropped back in June of 2018. No official announcement about an album release has been made. The Christian elements that appear in both the title and photo of this supposed album announcement fit with the theme of West's year musically. The superstar's focus for most of 2019 has been centered around his choir and gospel performances called "Sunday Service" which he has toured around the country. He brought the service to Coachella and to Ohio to memorialize the victims of the recent mass shooting in Dayton. [MORE]

Manhattan's Iconic Paris Theater Closes After 71 Years
Thanks to an influx of glass-and-steel McCondos and the unrelenting rise of rent prices, few beacons of Old New York have managed to remain in this city. And even if they have, it seems their days are numbered. The latest icon forced to shutter is cinephile favorite, The Paris Theater. Tucked on a Midtown side street between Bergdorf's and The Plaza, the last single-screen cinema has been a glamorous go-to for movie premieres and artsy film aficionados for the past 71 years. When it opened back in 1948, Marlene Dietrich had the honor of cutting the ribbon. With 581 seats, and a balcony beloved by A-listers, The Paris boasted that certain type of accessible glamour that could only be found in such niche New York landmarks. An Upper East Side Grande Dame was just as comfortable here as a Lower East Side film student, or, indeed, a Hollywood starlet. Carrie Bradshaw herself once said of the place, "The most amazing thing about living in a city like New York, is that any night of the week you can go to Paris." [MORE]
