Video Of The Day: Graffiti In 1970s NYC

Featured above, Norman Mailer’s 1976 short documentary, “Watching My Name Go By,” provides viewers with an inside look at New York City’s 1970s graffiti art scene. We are not only introduced to a few of the local artists, but the people who passionately opposed them and attempted to permanently wipe their work off the streets.

Warning: this footage contains material that may cause you to abandon your diet.

If you love the “uplifting” dessert but can’t stomach its thickening effects – or maybe you just want to pay tribute to the treat in a different way – Carte Noire‘s video of a pistachio tiramisu being made is just for you.

If that hasn’t satisfied your sweet tooth, see how the Internet’s trendiest cookie – the macaron – is made.
