New York Moves Fall 2018

Moves Magazine is a lifestyle magazine for city women (and men), unafraid to ask hard questions. We take on social, political, and global topics and show how women are shaping the world we live in today. Written with a progressive vibe, the magazine offers a provocative, often polemic view of society; an askance look at the world we live in.

I, Me, Mine. Let’s play a game. I’m the government, and you are an uninformed citizen. Let me tell you something you already know, a vague general statement about something quite miniscule; but then go in depth about why it’s significant. Are you ready? Instant gratification has suddenly led to a spike in narcissistic behavior. I know—it’s mind blowing. In New York City, you can pay someone to do any task for you—walk your dog, move your possessions, even follow you around with a video camera and document every waking moment of your life. Oh wait, there’s no need for that last one, because we already do that ourselves. We have become a nation defined by instant gratification. Anything we could possibly want is at our fingertips. The internet made things possible; smart phones made those…

“…You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time…”Abraham Lincoln “…Selfie, Selfie on the stick, who is the fairest self-centered, boring, friendless dick?…” It’s super hard dating someone when you’re a complete narcissist. I didn’t realize I was until recently I went on a date and forget shortly thereafter what the guy looked like. Sure, I remember laughing and drinking, but mostly I remember talking about myself and being hilarious. Which is horrifying. Surely this man had something to contribute, but I was on a roll with my one woman show and wouldn’t be stopped. Can someone please find me someone as funny as I am to get…

you can’t hurry love

I sat across from him in a softly lit boutique restaurant in Nolita. The tablecloths were white linen, the table flowers were beautiful and the candles made such sexy shadows on the walls. Everything screamed romance and passion—but I just wanted to scream. I wanted to jump up onto the table and pull out my hair. Everybody else seemed to drink in the ambience and here was I on a job interview, perusing my menu as if it were a dating manual. Actually it was a first date, which in New York is about the same thing except for one thing: I wasn’t sure I wanted the job. Whatever happened to love in the City? I know New York is fast-paced and everybody has an angle. Free time is limited to…

anthony bourdain 1956 — 2018

“Travel isn’t always pretty,” he said. “It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s OK. The journey changes you.” It was his iconic voiceover that changed travel television. Anthony Bourdain’s reflections about his travel were poetic, painful, and transcendental.“Travel isn’t always pretty,” he said. “It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you.” We’ll never know for sure how much the journey changed Anthony Bourdain, but for fifteen years he impacted audiences most remarkably. From floating on the Mekong River to eating fondue on the French Alps, to even escaping an attack in Beirut, there was no one on television that lived with more excitement. As CNN shows the final season to Parts Unknown, the…

sake bomb

I’ve been known to do things I’m not supposed to do. I count on my fingers, mix stripes and polkadots, eat raw cookie dough, date married men (What? He said he was separated) and I drink sake cocktails. Purists and connoisseurs would agree that adding “stuff” to sake is highly faux pas, akin to a wine cooler, even. But if purists ruled the world, who knows what we might miss out on. Would we have sangria? Screwdrivers? Bellinis? Sake to Me To me, a bigger gaucherie than polluting the ancient potation is the use of the common misnomer, “rice wine.” Wine is made from a single fermentation process, and sake from a two-step process, similar to that of beer. Therefore sake, more accurately, is its own entity: an alcoholic beverage made from…
