Happy Friday Movers,
Hope you’re as excited for the weekend as we are. It’s been a wicked busy week here at New York Moves. On Tuesday night, we had our Spring men’s cover party hosted by our coveryguy, Josh Duhamel. And we must say, the man is one of the most down-to-earth guys we’ve ever hung out with. The party was at TOY at the Gansevoort Hotel Meatpacking in NYC. Josh rocked the red carpet, spoke with a few reporters, chatted with our publisher and editor (see pic below) and spent the rest of the night among good company. It was a fantastic night, and we can’t wait for you to see the issue! Take a peak below at Josh on the red carpet with his cover.
Speaking of covers, the stunning Olga Kurylenko, who is our Spring cover lady, is garnering lots of buzz with her upcoming film, “To the Wonder.” Have you seen the trailer for the Terrence Malick flick? Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTAzcTZTY1g. Olga stars in the film alongside Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem. We can’t wait to see her shine in front of an all-star cast. And you heard it from us first: Olga is one talented actress whose career is sure to catapult, especially over the next six months with a plethora of releases, including “Oblivion,” the aforementioned “To the Wonder,” and a film called “Erased” with our past coverguy Aaron Eckhart. Pick up our Spring issue out this month and you too will see she’s on her way to the top.
In other news, after pulling in 3.6 million viewers for its Season 3 premiere this week, A&E’s show “Duck Dynasty” is the No. 1-rated nonfiction series on cable this year, according to the Washington Post. For those who don’t know the basis of the show, it centers around a redneck family who invented the duck-call. Today, the family still manufactures handmade duck-callers – a business that has made them multi-millionaires. Yes, you are reading this correctly. The No. 1 reality show on T.V. right now is about an extremely rich redneck family that makes duck-callers, a whistle-type instrument used in hunting. It is not the Kardashians, The Bachelor or some version of Real Housewives. Could this really be true? In all honesty, the show is one of the funniest around due mainly in part to its crazy family members and their daily mischievous antics. Antics pulled in the swampland suburbs of New Orleans surely make for more diverse, entertaining shenanigans than those in America’s most popular cities. It’s refreshing to see how the camo-clad hunters of the world live. Although, I’m pretty sure not all camo-clad hunters of the world drive gigantic black Escalades, are sponsored by Under Armour and live in mansions. Have you seen the show? What do you think about this shift in reality T.V? Do you think the days of corny dating shows and Housewives ruling the charts are over? Is it time to get more creative, America?
That’s all for now, but be sure to let us know your thoughts.
