Sex & Low Beach
A couple of weeks ago, I was tucked away in suburbia, inching through a Starbucks drive-through. As I waited impatiently for my foamy fix, suddenly an all-too-peppy barista leaned a little too far out of his sliding window and asked, “So,what is your New Year’s resolution?” Longing for the anonymity of New York Starbucks’ sprawling lines, I begrudgingly responded, “Uh… to try something new?”
As someone who flat-out refuses to make start-of-the-year resolutions, I felt my pre-caffeinated unconscious rebelling against my better judgment. But then, a few days ago, I realized that I was most definitely trying something new (as are you, dear reader): the 12th volume of this magazine.
This first Eye issue of 2012 debuts with a new staff of editors, writers, designers, artists, and bloggers—and, with them, a lot of new ideas. We are starting a new section of pithy pop culture commentary, punningly titled 20/20. In this first go-around, we take on two very different phenomena: Lana Del Rey and Bronies. The Eye is also much more than our print edition—look out for even more online content, covering everything from RuPaul to partying at MoMA. And follow us on Twitter!
Still, not to worry, we’re sticking with plenty of old Eye faithfuls. Madina Toure’s incisive lead examines the future of SEAS in the wake of administrative controversy and new competition in the city. Meanwhile, Monica Carty’s feature, “Grrrl Power 2.0,” looks at a new wave of women in music, and Eyesites does your dirty work by offering up “5 concerts you (shamefully) want to attend.”
If Blue Ivy’s auspicious birth means anything, it’s that it’s going to be a year of wonderful new things.
