1. Take a sneak-peek at the rare 1965 Rolling Stones documentary, Charlie Is My Darling. It's available on DVD on November 6. [via YouTube]
2. Artist Paco Cao has a new exhibition-cum-tarot card reading at (Art)Amalgamated Gallery (317 Tenth Ave.) in which he's fused digital images of deceased pop stars (Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse) with Old Master paintings. The art work has been reproduced on tarot cards that Cao will use during a live reading at the show's opening on October 30th from 6-9pm.
3. In case you were wondering, a) Beyoncé and Jay-Z tried to trademark the name Blue Ivy and b) they did not get said trademark approved. [MTV via Vulture]
4. Apparently the latest dining (drinking?) craze is "smoked water." [via Daily Post]
5. Ahead of RZA's epic-sounding film, The Man With the Iron Fists, watch the first music video from the movie's soundtrack, The Black Keys' "The Baddest Man Alive." Dan Auerbach, Patrick Carney and RZA really duke it out over the last fortune cookie. [via Grantland]
6. Adele had a baby! [via D Listed]
7. If you're looking to bliss out at the end of the day, watch this gorgeously-shot black-and-white video by a new Berlin-by-way-of-L.A. band, PVTLVS ("Private Lives") for their debut single, "Last Calls." (Thanks Anton!) [via Vimeo]
8. Some depressing news out of Russia today: the two members of Pussy Riot who remain imprisoned have reportedly been sent to "Soviet-era prison camps." [via Hollywood Reporter]
We are deeply, deeply obsessed with Hannah K. Lee's new zine Shoes Over Bills, featuring 20 pairs of shoes accompanied by their real-world price equivalent / rationalization for splurging or not splurging (we can't tell you how many times we've done this). Lee has printed 200 copies, and you can snag yours here for a mere $10. [via Lucky Pony]
But d'ya think this means the Most Interesting Man is a Romney supporter? Discuss. [via Horses and Bayonets]
Lindsay Lohan was the most worried out of anyone about last night's debate. [via Twitter]
"Be sure to eat your ________."
Charging! Check out nineteen-year-old Japanese artist, Choo-San, who creates these amazing body-paintings.
To which we say, "WTF is Lindsay Lohan." She's really been winning on Twitter lately. [via Tall Whitney]
WHAAAA? This is not a photograph -- this is a pencil drawing! [via Buzzfeed]
Ludwig Van FTW. [via Pleated Jeans]
Somehow the entire Internet missed Liam Neeson's dramatic reading of Justin Bieber's song, "Boyfriend." [via Vulture]
Rihanna's giving off the Carrie vibes on the set of her new music video, "Diamonds." [via Buzzfeed]
In the latest episode of Julie Klausner's "How Was Your Week?" the comedian sits down with Ted Leo and Chris "Spoony" Spooner to learn about whiskey and whittling. Our favorite line? "Do you have a hunk of wood that needs a flat-top fade?"
Too bad Diplo decided to put off the release of the new Major Lazer album until 2013. Fortunately we get a little taste with the release of this clip for "Jah No Partial" and a track that not only samples a King Jammy riddim but also showcases the skills of UK dubstep producer Flux Pavilion. The video, on the other hand, is pretty minimal. There's a shiny robo-guy, a green laser, some bold graphics and that's about it. Nice tune, though.
Cyrano de Bergerac
The new translation by Ranjit Bolt of Cyrano de Bergerac, presented by The Roundabout Theatre Company at The American Airlines Theatre, is the sort of play that a child would appreciate. There's sword fighting, funny insults, and a food fight. But can you rely on your inner child to get you through two and a half hours of rhyming couplets? Find out in the full review above (and read Paper's October article on de Bergerac star, Clemence Poesy)!
Modern Terrorism, Or They Who Want To Kill Us And How We Learn To Love Them
Modern Terrorism, Or They Who Want To Kill Us And How We Learn To Love Them, or the play with the unfortunately off-putting title, now playing at Second Stage Theatre, boasts a lot of great components, but are they assembled properly to make a big bang or this just an Off-Broadway bomb? Check out the insta-review above.

FOMO Alert: Here's a video of super attractive runway models (and Olivia Palermo) lip syncing to a Franz Ferdinand song and gallivanting around fashion weeks in NYC, Paris, Beijing and more. [via Fashionista]
We can't quite believe we're saying this but we might actually have to buy a pair of Timberlands (after seeing their latest women's collection). [via High Snobette]
Calling all the basic bitches, calling all the basic bitches, we have a new announcement: pink is the new wedding white. Okay, maybe not yet, but we sniff a two's a trend after hearing that Jessica Biel's Giambattista Valli wedding dress was pink (or, perhaps, had pink in it) just like Anne Hathaway's pink-dipped bridal gown. [via US Weekly]
This holiday season, Harrods' window display will feature designer re-interpretations of classic Disney princess dresses. Versace gave Cinderella a makeover, Marchesa took care of The Little Mermaid, Valentino outfitted Belle and Roberto Cavalli lent his feathers to Pocahontas, among others. [via Vogue UK]
Love Harper's Bazaar Spain's Dalí-meets-Sgt. Pepper's new cover. [via Fashion Gone Rogue]
Emma Roberts told Fashionista she called her aunt's famous Valentino Oscar dress a "skunk dress."
Wyclef Jean, he who recently celebrated his birthday by posing in his skivvies next to his Ducati, will soon be giving New Yorkers something it so desperately needs: a celebrity-endorsed restaurant. The singer told the folks over at Power 105.1 that "in six to nine months, I will be opening my own place in New York City...I feel that we can use a spot in New York that has culture...where it's DJ culture, it's band culture, it's lounge culture, it's vibe." We'll give you a second to stop laughing. Are you done? Okay, great. So you'll never guess what this vibin' lounge/band/DJ culture spot will be called: The Refugee Lounge.
Well, assuming the name is a nod to his band (and not, you know, the state of many citizens of his native Haiti), we have a few menu ideas:
-"Killing Me Soft-(Boiled Eggs)"
-"The Sweetest Thing (Chocolate Lava Cake)"
-"Strumming My Pain With His (Chicken) Fingers"
-"Ready Or Not (Twice Baked Potato)"
-"No Woman, No Fry (Baked Chicken)"
-"Gonna Find You And Take It Slow (Cooked Braised Ribs)"
"Bless You If You Represent the Fu(silli with Grilled Chicken and Pesto Cream Sauce)"
We'll even waive our consultation fee.
As always, leave your suggestions in the comments below.

And, though their subject material may be vastly different, we're also reminded of Frank Ocean's recent letter opening up about his sexuality, which, along with "Cleaning Out My Closet," may prove that there's room in hip-hop (and R&B) for artists who are unafraid to expose themselves, and who are complex, unapologetic and vulnerable. It's a combination that, much like Haze's song, feels simultaneously refreshing, original and authentic. Please listen to "Cleaning Out My Closet" below.
1. Judd Apatow will guest-edit Vanity Fair's first ever comedy issue. It's the January issue, and it'll be out in early December. FUN! [via VF Daily]
2. Hanksy has struck again -- this time in Bushwick, and in the form of Theodoor (get it?!) Huxtable. [via Gothamist]
3. Two former PAPER Beautiful people -- Max Winkler and Jake Johnson -- are teaming up on a sitcom for FOX called The B Team. Both will write and direct. It's about "five regular underdogs who, sick of getting screwed over, come together and form a real-world version of The Avengers. But, lacking any actual superpowers, they must rely on their intelligence and cunning to turn the tables on those who take advantage of the powerless." [via Deadline]
4. Apparently, Mitt Romney eats a lot of veggie burgers! Huh. [via Daily Intel]
5. In other burger news, L.A.'s famed Umami Burger is coming to New York at long last. It'll open in March on Sixth Ave. and 10th St. [via NYT]
6. Tomorrow, Oct. 24th, Neil Young will be answering questions from fans via Twitter. Got something pressing to ask 'em? Use the hashtag #AskNeil. Oooooh boy. This is gonna be kinda crazy!
7. Calling all pup-owning North Brooklynites! Dress up your pooch and head to Howl-A-Ween, a canine costume contest taking place on Oct. 27th at the McCarren Park Dog Run (N. 12th at Driggs & Union)
8. Don't have much going on? Watch the new downtown Whitney Museum get built in real time! [via ArtInfo]

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake's People cover looks like a still from *NSYNC's "Tearing Up My Heart" video.
Croatian cellists -- a brief pause here to acknowledge that "Croatia" and "cellos" are not your everyday PAPER topics -- Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, aka 2cellos, are about to release their second album, In2ition, and the boys have cleverly updated Run-D.M.C. and Aerosmith's "Walk This Way" video storyline. In this cover of AC/DC's "Highway to Hell," the cello-boys stop by their local music store and find a room full of Steve Vai fans. Unperturbed, they head into another room, pick up a couple of cellos and start to...well, wail. The crowd and Steve soon follow. Now who wants a cello for Xmas?
Go Adele, Go! Her new album moved back into the Top 10 on the album chart this week, moving up from #15 to #9. Mumford & Sons slipped to #2 in what turned out to be a big week for country music, lead by Jason Aldean's latest, Night Train, at #1; with Scotty McCreery straight in at #4 and Jamey Johnson at #5. Bruno Mars' SNL appearance gave his Locked Out of Heaven a solid sales boost from #22 up to #9 on the download chart. In other music biz news: Bobby Brown was arrested in L.A. early this morning on suspicion of DUI and both Rod Stewart and Motorhead have finished new albums that are now set to be released early next year.

'90s nostalgia has officially reached its peak: you can now order a whole lot of Lisa Frank stuff from Urban Outfitters. We are slightly mortified and we will be spending the next half hour buying all of it. [via BuzzFeed]
Here's a loop of all of the promos for Oxygen's The Face, which stars Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha. The way Naomi tells Karolina "I'm very disappointed in your choice" is more than enough to sell us. [via Fashionista]
Vanity Fair have a genius photo spoof imagining homophobic hair-cutting-era Mitt Romney pulling pranks/bullying just about everyone. No one is safe from Mitt's back-slapping, life-long-scar-leaving hi-jinx. What a cut up! [via Vanity Fair]
Today seems to be the day that all menswear look-books are released for the upcoming season. Our favorite is Jonathan Saunders -- so cute! [via Fashion Beans]
Hedi Slimane might be designing the wardrobe for The Rolling Stones' new tour. [via Elle UK]
Chanel will maybe, possibly, do e-commerce in a few years. [Fashionista via Business of Fashion]
Maybe you can dress up as Ai Weiwei as PSY for Klaus Biesenbach and Courtney Love's MoMA PS1 Halloween party?
Funny how we were just lamenting the lack of big nightclubs in New York City, and then along comes word that famed Ibiza club Space is opening an off-shoot on West 50th Street. In a humorous hyperbole/typo, the New York Post claims that the club will have a capacity of 13,000 people. We suspect that's a little on the high side since it's in the same spot that was going to house a branch of Manchester, UK, club Sankeys and that spot supposedly only had a capacity of 1,100. Sankeys threw in the towel after they were unable to convince Community Board 4 that EDM is not the devil's music. Another big nightclub, Finale, is coming to 199 Bowery, and invitations have already gone out for a sneak preview on Halloween hosted by Heidi Klum. The Daily News says she's going as Cleopatra, but we really loved last year's "skinned alive" get-up.
No, this photo's not pixelated -- that wall is part of a 90-square-foot Brooklyn apartment belonging to Snarkitecture partner Daniel Arsham (whose company, incidentally, has mad sand castle-building skills) and covered with 25,000 ping pong balls. Part-residence, part-art project (Arsham has entitled the work "Box/Box"), the living space is attached to the firm's offices and accessible via the ladder seen (we think) in the photo above. What's more, Arsham painted all of the balls by hand (lest you think you can buy these grayscale orbs for your next game of beer pong) and sprayed them with fire retardant. Check out more photos of the cuckoo crash pad below.
Welcome to Trailer Trash, highlighting the best, worst and so-so in new movie trailers.
"A bunch of young people go to a cabin in the woods, and then things go horribly wrong." This has been the narrative of a host of films over the years, but the grandaddy of them all is Evil Dead, a low-budget cult classic born from some pretty crafty filmmaking. It's no wonder that horror fanatics have been anticipating a glimpse at the remake, which reunites the director of the original, Sam Raimi, and the film's star Bruce Campbell as producers. And if that's not enough to silence any worries of an awful remake, Diablo Cody and Rodo Sayagues Mendez are both on board as writers, former Beautiful Person and Suburgatory star Jane Levy stars, and Uruguayan horror golden boy Fede Alvarez is directing. The trailer delivers on every expectation you could have for a remake of this horror classic, but it's also apparently trying to shake things up. Besides all the obligatory gore and violence, there's also a sense of unpredictability stressed in this teaser. Check it out above.
Evil Dead hits theaters on April 12, 2013
1. Queen of all media (and essentially all things) Oprah is teaming up with HBO to develop a new series penned by playwright Thomas Bradshaw about the life of the first black president of a liberal arts college. In mathematical terms: Oprah + HBO + famed playwright = Emmys. [THR via Vulture]
2. There's a very cool proposal to "update" the thousands of ugly electric towers that cover the globe. "The Land of Ghosts" is the work of Massachusetts-based architects Choi + Shine and -- though it has never come to fruition -- the idea has won several awards. (H/T to Instant Joy)
4. Our favorite questions from Neil Young's Twitter version of Ask Me Anything.
5. Here's a confession: we're suckers for a good period drama and thus are quite intrigued by this new Mary Queen of Scots show headed to CW that's described as "Game of Thrones meets Marie Antoinette." [via Deadline]
6. Go inside an insane-looking 75,000-square-foot museum/restaurant/karaoke bar in Moscow that was formerly a nuclear bomb bunker over at Eater.
7. Read about the creepy new Big Brother-type surveillance project in Williamsburg posing as a "hipster fashion blog." [via Gawker]
