Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is ridiculously silly... I got my whole office watching it today.

DO IT: things to add to your calendar this week
Friday and Saturday are martini nights (5:30-8p) on the roof of the Met, through the run of Big Bambu (October 31). Tonight may be a bit soggy, but this weekend we should have sunny Fall weather. Perhaps a pre-dinner drink and lovely city view tomorrow night?

Check out the Threadless pop-up shop in SoHo before they close at 8p Saturday!

The Hoboken Art and Music Festival is Sunday from 11a-6p. Check out hundreds of artists, photographers, musicians, restaurants, and local businesses. Admission is free.

Julian Velard will be playing his new album, Mr. Saturday Night, in it's entirety on Wednesday night at Rockwood for free! There's also a confirmed rumor he'll be at Rockwood this Sunday night at 5p, performing under his stage name of "Steve McQueen". I'll be at both shows, come hang out!

M.I.A. will also be doing a free show on Wednesday, at Brooklyn Bowl. Line starts forming at 7p, doors at 9:30p, show at 10:30p.
