Our twice monthly round-up of Woody Allen stuff from around the web. It’s a quiet period, with Christmas and New Years, but here’s what we’ve got.
Quite an excellent video from the University of Huddersfield. It’s the opening scene of Manhattan, but about their town. It’s beautifully shot and lovingly done, with a nicely modern take on the monologue.
Woody Allen’s a regular fixture at the Carlyle Hotel in NYC. Most Mondays he’s there playing jazz, and has done so for decades. Illustrator Bernadette Pascua recently blogged about her experience going to one of those shows.
Speaking of the Carlyle, Jerry Zigmont, who plays trombone with Woody, has posted a schedule update on his site. Looks like the band and Allen will be appearing every Monday from Janauary 14th through til June 17th. Catch him if you can!
Two artists, Jason Liwag (@jasian) and Nick Comparone (@designanddestroy), are going to be a part of the Woody Allen tribute at Gallery 1988, opening on January 11. Both artists posted previews of their pieces.
Twitter user @Jorogago posted this interesting, wonderful, cubist Woody Allen. Is this new?
Another illustration – this one by Andrés Echeverry . A very cool line drawing. Check out the full gallery with the Beatles, Marilyn and more.
A very cool flipbook guide to the locations in Woody Allen’s Manhattan.
We Are The Dreamers posted a very cool Woody Allen tattoo.
