Weekend Vibes
The prime time for frights and scares are rolling in now, making it a very eventful weekend. 
The pre-Halloween festivities are just as great as the end of the month kinds lined up, which is why this guide wasn't hard to put together. 
Spoiled NYC has selected the coolest things to eat, see and do in the city. Check out this guide and find out what you'll be doing this weekend! 
Short Story Review
Life isn’t exactly easy; there are decisions to make, heartbreak, death,  and every conceivable action. Dominga is an EMT who seems to care too much about things. She wants to save every life she can, on or off the job, no matter the risk. 
Her friend Nico, on the other hand,  can’t seem to get anything to go his way. He seems to want out of life, not suicide, more like never having existed in the first place. When Dominga gains the power to do just that, she still feels as if she must help her friend rather than become an indifferent cosmic entity.
spoiled Sounds
It’s not often these days that we see a rapper come out of Staten Island, but the list of rappers who have are some of the greatest of all time (Method Man, RZA, Ghostface Killa, etc…). 
Lou the Human may not be aiming to join those ranks just yet, but he certainly has the skills to. More of a rapper’s rapper, Lou’s athletic flows and lyrics on just wanting to have the freedom to go wild create a personality different from other rising rappers.
Art To See
The Korean Cultural Center of NY sent out a call for South Korean artists living in New York earlier in the year, selecting 22 award-winning artists for this show. Centered around the South Korean post-modernist movement that occurred after the 1990 Olympic Games in Seoul, the exhibition is heavily involved in politics, high modernism, and the avant-garde. 
Focusing on South Korean culture, the influence of living in New York shines through each artist’s work, forming what could be a new direction in South Korean art.
Fashion Favorite
With its playfully sexy clothes, incredibly diverse casting and unique details continuously keeping the label captivating to its clients, Eckhaus Latta has shown why it deserves to be at the forefront. Created in 2011 by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, the brand initially was an artsy cult-favorite brand. 2018 was a big year for Eckhaus Latta: opening a show at the Whitney Museum, previously opening exhibits at the Hammer Museum and MoMA PS1, and being nominated for the LVHM prize.
After meeting each other at the Rhode Island School of Design, the duo’s line quickly became an underground favorite of the New York fashion community, known for deconstructed knitwear, vintage denim, and leaving the clothing unclassified by gender. Their most recent Spring 2019 collection was an age and race-diverse mix of models, artists, and cultural powerhouses. Playfulness was incredibly evident in their clothing line as the soundtrack to the collection was made by young schoolchildren banging on cymbals and yelling.

People We Celebrate
There’s something inspiring when it comes to making a change. Maybe we could all use Mary Mattingly as a spark to that!
Mattingly, a visual artist, took action when she found out that the South Bronx was the largest food desert in the U.S., Swale is a public food garden on the water that provides free produce and herbs to all people.
She has provided numerous families with fresh fruits and vegetables that they could harvest at Swale. Also a visual artist, Swale is just one of her projects.

Some highlights of the proposal are the reduction of a flat ticket rate to $2.75, on the LIRR and commuter railroads as well as enforcing a free transfer to subways and buses. πŸš„πŸ“°πŸ‘€
Deadly hair and a vicious reputation have always been two strong points of the mythological figure, Medusa.

October Outings
It's October! Welcome the warm sweaters, pumpkin everything, and fall festivities. We're catching the leaves changing, beers in lederhosen, Halloween parades, and opera. Check this monthly guide for the best where to go, what to do, this month.

This week's feature: The Chelsea Film Festival
spoiled Sounds
Gus Dapperton has a style that only he can pull off. A crazy bowl cut, turtlenecks, and bright glasses pull this kids style together. At just 20 years old, Dapperton’s music emphasizes music from just before his time.
Mixing pop vibes that we’ve gotten used to, he throws in a bit of Mac DeMarco-esque cool tones and can easily throw all that over some funky 90’s bass lines. Interested yet? Dapperton’s music is probably everything you’ve been looking for in an artist.
Dangerous Beauty
Medusa is a mythological figure recognized by many through depictions in movies, television and stories passed down. The exhibition at Met explores the shift in the classical art of Medusa from a hideous creature to a beautiful feminine figure.
Comprised of a collection of over sixty works, the idealization of the human form comes to light through the representations of many mythological creatures. Medusa is a figure that is recognized easily in the art, whether it be her as a woman or her as a monster, her snake hair and piercing eyes make her presence felt through each piece.
Short Story Review
AI is transforming our lives more and more every day. Helping us with simple tasks like checking the weather, but on a larger scale monitoring the world economy, corporate scale farming and countless other integral aspects of human society. Can AI become a threat to humans? On a British air base, an AI security system guards the base, keeping the officers inside safe from outside threats and the like.
But when a group of the soldiers is mysteriously killed, who is to blame? The AI system should have been protecting them, causing some mistrust against the computer.
