    Right before 2000, a 14-year-old Lena Dunham filled out a "Millenium Diary" and answered questions about everything from her personal motto to what "taste makes you melt." Below, we select our five favorite answers from the actress and writer's millenium book. 


    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 12.55.51 PM.png
    An invention that would make her life easier in the new Millennium: "A shower where you could lie down and sleep while your hair is washed for you. Also, a dream recorder so you could watch your dreams on tape." And, she thinks there will be a Hilton on the moon in 2025.

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 1.03.59 PM.png
    On what she would buy if she could afford it at this moment: "rose pink felt birkinstocks." Why are Birkenstocks the dream shoe of every 14-year-old girl? Contoured cork footbeds are certainly not cool or even particularly stylish, and yet they are the coolest things ever circa 7th and 8th grade. A mystery for the ages...

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 2.24.42 PM.png
    Her third (and most meaningful) thing for which she is complimented on: "my uniqueness."

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 1.04.23 PM.png
    Something forbidden she did that might even have surprised her closest friends: "had people cut off the airflow to my brain and pass me out." Uh, what?

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 12.55.29 PM.png
    Her motto: "Lena is my name. Learn it, live it, love it. Just because people don't understand you, doesn't mean you're an artist." Truth be told.

    One of the tried-and-true staples of '80s and '90s sitcoms was the goofy friend to a sibling. While parked on the couch watching a TGIF when you were in the 5th grade, you could always count on a hambone buddy to pop in on your favorite show.

    At PAPERMAG, we've been missing some of our BFFs from those classic sitcoms, so we decided to see what they're up to now. And guess where we found them hanging out? No, not at The Max with Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski - they're all on Twitter!

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 2.12.43 PM.pngTHE BFF: Miles Knobnoster, Mr. Belvedere

    THE ACTOR: Casey Ellison, @ParkCasey 

    Knobnoster, Wesley's BFF, was constantly mocked for his orthodontic headgear. Casey Ellison, the actor who played Knobnoster, currently works as the electrician on Mad Men (who knew!), and created a Twitter account, and checked in once to make this enigmatic announcement:

    tumblr_m6w57iDvdF1rpzzg8.jpgTHE BFF: Jazz, Fresh Prince of Bel Air

    THE ACTOR: Jeffrey A. Townes, @djjazzyjeff215

    Will Smith was nice enough to bring his musical sidekick, DJ Jazzy Jeff, along for the ride when he launched his acting career on Fresh Prince. We don't remember this from the show, but according to Wikipedia:

    [Jazz] has had a long-standing crush on Hilary Banks, and almost every time his advances are rejected. Jazz eventually marries a prison inmate named Jewel who had appeared on an episode of COPS, in which she bites the arm of a police officer.

    These days, DJ Jazzy Jeff is still spinning records, and sending jazzy Twitter updates like this:

    3216002132_55aa971839.jpgTHE BFF: Alfonso, Silver Spoons

    THE ACTOR: Alfonso Ribeiro, @alfonso_ribeiro

    Before he became Carlton, Alfonso Ribeiro played Ricky's best friend on Silver Spoons. Nowadays, he's developing a new sitcom, Things We Do For Love, and uses Twitter to inform people that he will NOT do the Carlton Dance.

    Skippy1.jpgTHE BFF: Skippy, Family Ties

    THE ACTOR: Marc Price, @SkippyTies

    Alex P. Keaton's BFF now does stand-up, uses Twitter to workshop new material:

    dino232788.jpgTHE BFF: Spike, Dinosaurs
    THE ACTOR: Christopher Meloni, @melonichris

    Remember Dinosaurs? If you do, you probably wish you could forget it, because it was THE. WORST. But you probably didn't know that none other than Christopher Meloni -- of SVU and Wet Hot American Summer -- voiced Spike, the black-leather-jacket-wearing Polacanthus friend to Robbie, who was a 15-year-old Hypsilphodon.

    Meloni gave Twitter a brief whirl, delivering this insightful tweet about the weather:

    bonr-e1329425168687.jpgTHE BFF: Boner, Growing Pains
    THE ACTOR: Andrew Koenig, @JeSuisLeSinge

    No list of sitcom sibling sidekicks would be complete without Boner from Growing Pains. Sadly, Andrew Koenig, the actor who portrayed Boner, committed suicide in 2010. In his too-short time with us, Koenig was a prolific, and funny tweeter:

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 2.43.13 PM.png4.

    Jenna-von-Oy-Blossom.jpgTHE BFF: Six, Blossom
    THE ACTOR: Jenna von Oy, @Jennavonoy

    Blossom's BFF, who lives in Newton, CT with her husband, a data consultant, now takes to Twitter to give updates on her daughter. Why was she named Six? Because she was the sixth child in her family!

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 2.49.09 PM.png

    3.

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 3.00.35 PM.pngTHE BFF: Paul, The Wonder Years
    THE ACTOR: Josh Saviano, @joshsaviano

    He's not Marilyn Manson, but Paul from The Wonder Years is a Yale graduate, and now practices intellectual property law. Seems like a smart dude, but he ran into some trouble while trying to watch the presidential debates recently:

    tumblr_mbw30qBs5p1rhc9leo2_500.pngTHE BFF: Kimmy Gibbler, Full House
    THE ACTOR: Andrea Barber, @andreabarber

    Andrea Barber, aka the Gibster, quit the acting biz and is now works in Whittier College's Office of International Programs. She is popular on Twitter, and spends most of her time on the site answering questions from Gibbler fanatics:

    Waldo-Falso-3333-family-matters-6847138-600-418.jpgTHE BFF: Waldo Faldo, Family Matters
    THE ACTOR: Shawn Harrison, @STFULoveShawn

    The all-time No. 1 sitcom sibling sidekick, Eddie Winslow's best bud, Waldo Faldo, was constantly funnier than Family Matters' main stooge, Steve Urkel. These days, Shawn Harrison has a blog, and tweets about sports...mainly football and tennis:

    Over the last month we polled some of our favorite celebrities/movers and shakers to find out what they were dressing up as for Halloween this year. Read on to see who's wearing a speedo, who's going to let their body be devoured by beetles and who's going to be a party pooper and not dress up at all.

    azealiaheader.jpegAzealia Banks, Rapper
    "Me and my boyfriend are going as Popeye and Olive Oyl"


    IMG_4661.jpgMichael Musto, Gossip columnist
    "I dress up every night and feel that on Halloween I should dress up extra hard. I'm going with one of my regular choices, which is a human gift box. It's light and portable (you just slip it over your head) and everyone knows what you're supposed to be, so it reads really well. I chose that over other possibilities like Angelina's leg, the chair Clint Eastwood talked to, or an angry Chick-fil-A sandwich." [Costume pictured]


    ctMOT3Vnhb8l.jpgDita Von Teese, Burlesque Performer
    "I usually wear a tan, blue jeans and a blonde wig. It's called my "normal girl look." People ask me what I'm dressed up as and I say, 'I'm dressed up as you.'" (Photo PacficCoastNews)

    emma-straub-head.jpgEmma Straub, Writer
    "I am most often a cat for Halloween, because I have enough leopard-print clothes to make a good go of it, and plus I enjoy licking milk out of a dish on the floor. Do you think this will frighten the trick or treaters?" (Photo by Jacqueline Di Milia)


    adriangrenierhalloween1.jpgAdrian Grenier, Actor
    "I might be an Olympic swimmer and wear a little speedo and a nose thing...and the six pack -- the eight pack!"

    rettahalloween1.jpgRetta, Actress
    "I am not [dressing up]. Whenever people ask me what I'm gonna be for Halloween I say 'a minority.' If someone were to take care of planning a great costume for me I might dress up. But alas, I've got nothing."

    sarahsophieflickerhalloween1.jpgSarah Sophie Flicker, Performer/Director
    "My daughter is going to be the Vampire of Versailles, whatever that means. And whatever I am, I have to be a vampire. My son is going to be a train conductor and [my daughter] is making him wear fangs. All aboard, muahaha!"

    andrew-wkhalloween1.jpgAndrew WK, Musician/Party Expert
    "I am going as Andrew WK"


    skrillexhalloween1.jpgSkrillex, DJ
    "I never have a costume, it always just happens in the dressing room. If you have toilet paper lying around, mummy time. If you got some extra paint, I'm a vampire or a zombie. If you've got nothing, we have to figure out something else."

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 3.25.36 PM.png@NotTildaSwinton, Twitter sage who is not Tilda Swinton
    "I simply fill myself with beetles and become THEIR costume. It is important to let your limbs go slack, give the beetles full power. When you are finished, lay with all your orifices gaping and let the beetles pour out of you. EXCEPT FOR ONE. Keep him inside you forever."


    franchescahalloween1.jpgFranchesca Ramsey, Designer/Blogger/Comedian
    "I looove Halloween. If this crazy hurricane doesn't happen, we're planning on going to the parade and hitting up a few house parties. I'm going as Medusa and my fiance is going to be one of my statue victims. I actually did a hairstyle tutorial for my costume since I decided to make my dreads into snakes!" [Costume pictured]

    gabeliedmanhalloween1.jpgGabe Liedman, Comedian/Writer
    "I'm going as a straight guy. The look consists of a varsity letterman style jacket, a dumb baseball cap, a Batman t-shirt, non-skinny jeans, Converse all-stars and no glasses. I debuted it last week at Julie Klausner's live podcast, and I think it was a hit? Or people were laughing at something else about me."

    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 3.37.17 PM.pngAlex Karpovsky, Actor
    "I need to start thinking about it. One year I was the burning bush...I tried to speak in aphorisms and wisdom. Half-way through, my flame on my head broke and I became just a bush. Then someone had a picture of John McCain so I became Vietnam holding him as a POW."


    Screen shot 2012-10-26 at 3.42.27 PM.pngAndrewAndrew, DJs
    "We used to just dress up as each other, until we hit on Mormons! The plan is to do variations on the theme every year forever: Zombie Mormons, Slutty Mormons, Doctor Mormons...you get the idea."

    In Ryan Johnson's new show at The Suzanne Geiss Company -- his first solo exhibit at the gallery -- the New York-based artist attempts to blend fantasy with the mundane, creating a self-storage unit filled with everyday objects that appear to have taken on lives of their own. Much as a tight storage space might cause objects to commingle with one another, Johnson's "Self Storage" intends to "allude to a sense of accumulation" and create "a site where disparate ideas are left to linger and bleed into one another," according to the exhibit's press release. Using wood, medical casting tape, and sheet metal the show features sculptures resembling a precarious, two-dimensional-seeming rocking horse, a bicycle that appears as if it will take off on its own and a phantasmagoric, mannequin-like figure balancing a pyramid of oranges on its head. Each piece -- and its relation to all the rest -- attempt to address themes of instability, transition, and liminality in our everyday lives. See preview images above and below.

    3. Tina Fey was (not surprisingly) amazing, speaking at last night's Center for Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala. Check out this clip above: "But it seems like we can't right now. And if I have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a two-dollar haircut explain to me what rape is, I'm gonna lose my mind."

    Bike Kill, the block party hosted by the Black Label Bike Club, returned for its 9th year to an otherwise quiet block near their clubhouse (aka the Chicken Hut) in Bed-Stuy. Unlike last year, it managed to beat the freak Halloween storm, and a decent-sized crowd turned out to watch and ride all the creative contraptions. Contests included the group's traditional tall-bike jousting event, as well as a new one -- the muff dive (turns out these guys are just as good with foam sculpture as they are with bike-building). Check out photos below.

    Unfortunately, MoMA PS1's first annual Artists' Halloween Carnival and Parade yesterday was cut short due to the storm, but still happened for a small group for a few hours before the MTA shut down. Artists made their Halloween looks at a workshop earlier in the afternoon, and then showed off their costumes in a parade around the museum. And as if Sunday's calm before the storm couldn't have gotten any weirder, enter costume contest judges Klaus Biesenbach and Courtney Love in evening attire to pick the winner (her accessories included thick-lensed eyeglasses and an electronic cigarette). Check out photos from the festivities below.

    Save for a couple of photo galleries we'll be posting today from Halloween weekend shenanigans in NYC, we're taking the day off here at PAPER HQ to obsessively watch NY1 for updates on Hurricane Sandy, check the Times' City Room blog for more updates on Hurricane Sandy, and freeze bags of water. (Really, you should freeze bags of water -- they will keep perishables cool should you lose electricity, and you can use the water when they melt.) Mostly, though, be safe today, everyone! Stay inside, watch Big Bird confront his fear of storms and spend some time with your Netflix instant account (we cannot recommend the first three seasons of soothing/depressing NBC family drama Parenthood enough, or, if you want to keep things topical, there's always the 'Stormy Weather' episode of Falcon Crest ). Let's ride this sucker out!

    Like yesterday, we're lying low here at PAPER HQ and will be spending most of the day watching NY1, eating everything we baked last night and making sure our co-workers without power are A-OK. Are you A-OK? We really hope so. We'll be posting here and there today but we'll be back tomorrow with our regularly scheduled programming (we really need morning funnies in our lives right about now) and a guide to the Halloween parties that are still going on. (Sandy won't keep us from partying, dammit!) Stay safe, everyone!

    If you live on the East Coast, we can't think of a better way to pass the time in this post-Hurricane Sandy limbo than making crafts and watching YouTube videos (and, even if you're not in the Frankenstorm's wake, we still think those happen to be pretty great activities for any occasion/lunch break). Luckily, Chrissie Miller's awesome new web show, Club Chrissie, combines both of those pastimes (you can peep the premiere, which launched on PAPERMAG last week and features Miller tie-dying sneakers with Maxine Ashley, HERE). In this latest episode, Miller's Sophomore colleague (and all around cool girl -- just scope her hair!) Leah Dell comes into the clubhouse to make iron-on vintage t-shirts. Watch the two chat, play with Miller's puppet friends and get their crafting on. 

    You can head to i am OTHER to see more episodes of Club Chrissie.

Download the e-catalogues for Warhol's photographs, works on paper and prints here and take a sneak peek of the collection below. (P.S. We're assured that Christie's Warhol-themed 'Factory Chic Halloween Drag Party' will still take place tomorrow night, so spend today teasing and spraying your wigs to high heaven, folks!)

    SandyDestructionQueens640.jpgIf you weren't affected by Hurricane Sandy last night, it's more than likely that you have friends, loved ones and co-workers who are without power, water, or who have suffered set backs from serious flooding. 15 people have been killed in New York state as a result of the storm, the Breezy Point section of Queens suffered devastating damage and it's being reported by Reuters that lower Manhattan could be without power for four days. Below, a list of ways to help (should it seem safe for you to venture outdoors). We've also included a few organizations accepting relief support donations as well as ways to help the Humane Society and the ASPCA rescue and care for stranded and injured pets.

    Get in touch with the shelters and evacuation centers in your area. Here's a map. These centers may need different things -- extra hands, clothing donations, etc. -- so call ahead to see what they need. 

    Brooklyn Based points us to volunteer opportunities at The Red Cross, who needs volunteers over 16, available through Friday, and who can lift up to 50 pounds. They must also be 'comfortable working in stressful situations.' If you can help, email staffing@nyredcross.org.

    redcross-sandy.pngThe Red Cross is also in need of blood donations due to cancelled blood drives.


    The New York City Public Advocate's Office
    is also need of volunteers --  fill out this form which includes times you're available and neighborhoods you can travel to.

    The Atlantic has a thorough roundup of ways to help, including making food donations or volunteering your time at The Food Bank for New York and the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

    Gothamist also has an extensive list of volunteer opportunities and ways to help. NY Cares is accepting applications for volunteers (even better if you've gone to a NY Cares orientation meeting in the past year) and both The Humane Society of the United States and the American Humane Society are in need of donations to help rescue stranded pets and animals in Sandy-affected shelters.

    The ASPCA is accepting donations to help with rescue missions for stranded and injured pets.

    You can also find out about various volunteer opportunities via NYC Service over the next week. Email nycservice@cityhall.nyc.gov with your name, email address and borough.

    The Salvation Army is taking donations for Sandy relief efforts.

    Vice released "Do They Know It's Hallowe'en" back in 2005 as a spoof on the celebrity benefit singles, "Do They Know It's Christmas." According to its creators, the song "[stemmed] from a frustration with other benefit songs' misguided, somewhat patronizing attitude, and Western-centric worldview" but, like "Do They Know It's Christmas," sales were donated to UNICEF. The song features a lot of performers, including Win Butler and Régine Chassagne of Arcade Fire, Feist, Beck, Peaches, Buck 65, Karen O, Gino Washington and the late Malcolm McClaren. It's a tongue-in-cheek dig at Western arrogance, as well as our collective mania for this holiday (which, admittedly, we're big fans of), but it's also one of our favorite Halloween jams ever. We want candy, we want candy!

    Kate Moss told Vanity Fair that the Calvin Klein campaign she did with Marky Mark nearly gave her a nervous breakdown: "It didn't feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn't like it. I couldn't get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die." [via Fashionista]

    Thanks to Das Racist's new video "Girl," we've possibly met our new favorite music video hero: Mullet Dance Man (played by comedian Fahim Anwar). Sporting a look that is alternately Billy Ray Cyrus and Michael Jackson c. "Black or White," this acid-washed Fred Astaire in the making spots a girl he has a crush on and proceeds to follow her around town -- to the library, to a yoga class and to a plaza fountain -- and kind of endearingly/kind of creepily show off his moves behind her. Later, for reasons unknown, he fights some thugs (maybe the head thug is the girl's ex?) but doesn't let that encounter distract him from his original mission. At home with a new tactic, he woos her the only way someone brought up in the digital age knows how -- but we won't spoil the ending.

    "Girl" appears on Relax, out now.

    Here's an incredibly eerie time-lapse video (taken from the top of Northside Piers in Williamsburg) during Hurricane Sandy, which shows the exact moment when power went out in Lower Manhattan. Very apocalyptic. I feel so lucky to be sitting on my couch here in Brooklyn with working electricity, water and Internet, and I am sending good vibes across the river, especially to elderly and disabled people who are without power in the city's many highrise buildings.
