Kinda random, but kinda not:
Auf der anderen Seite (The Edge of Heaven in the US) by Fatih Akin is one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. Head On was also fucking amazing. The guy is just an amazing director and writer.

The new Turkish food joint, Döner, on Bedford ave in Northside is excellent, and the price can't be beat. Get a lamb döner sandwich and the red lentil soup, and you'll find yourself well fed and feeling pretty damn good about it, too. And lord knows we all need to feel good.
