One Crazy Night, One Crazy New York
In honor of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist's opening weekend, NYMag.com had a brills slide show up yesterday about the top ten One Crazy Night Movies. You know, there's usually an angsty brooding protagonist who harbors an unrequited love for a clueless interest, along with a conflict of seismic proportions -- and all of the above meets a happy or at least satisfactory end resolved in a neat little package at around the 90 minute mark. Sixteen Candles is on the list, so is an awesome Buffy episode.

In case you were wondering, Before Sunrise isn't on the list because the writers couldn't define it as a "crazy night." Understandable, I guess.
And then there's this awesome conversation between Santogold and Debbie Harry, also at NYMag, about crazy New York nights of a different kind, but worth a read all the same.
