Ralph Steadman - For No Good Reason

Ralph Steadman is a British cartoonist, perhaps most famous for his illustrations of Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. A documentary about his career, entitled For No Good Reason, opens this Friday, April 25. The film details Steadman’s artistic endeavors over the years, beginning with Hunter S. Thompson’s and his adventures in Gonzo journalism. The film continues, showing off Steadman’s art while mixing anecdotes, interviews, and conversations between Steadman and the film’s celebrity narrator, Johnny Depp. Animations interspersed in transitions help Steadman’s distinctive drawings literally come to life as viewers learn about the artist’s reflections on his work and process. The film at times seems a little scattered; it covers a wide breadth of material and doesn’t leave space to cover many ideas in true depth. Nonetheless, it provides an interesting look at an interesting man and his artistic career.

Along with the film’s opening this week, Ralph Steadman will be having a pop-up exhibit at the Red Bull Studios, showcasing some of the art featured in the film. The exhibit is Steadman’s first full exhibit in New York in 13 years and runs from April 23-25, including the Premiere After Party 4/25 at 8pm (RSVP required.

Victor Vazquez, or Kool A.D., is something of a rap dynamo. The Bay Area native and Wesleyan graduate—he just so happened to rub shoulders with MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden while attending—has already made a name for himself in a genre that has only recently been able to get outside the perameters of “mo’money, mo’ bitches.”

As a sophomore, Vazquez joined classmate Himanshu Suri to form Das Racist, whose first single, “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” went viral in 2008. Though the group went on to release two acclaimed mixtapes, they ultimately broke up before the release of their first LP.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Vazquez is now the drummer for hardcore band, Party Animal, and has also released several mix tapes under the name Kool A.D. With his trademark “joke rap” sound and undeniable flow, Vazquez is proving to be just that. To win two tickets to see Kool serve up his sound with Rebelmatic, Prop Anon, Sarcasmo an Sunny Gang at the Studio at Webster Hall this Thursday, enter to win here.
