Pop-Up Magazine and ESPN The Magazine Treat New York Right

Sorry for the image quality, we weren't technically allowed to take pictures. The risks we take for you!

Last night we had the pleasure of witnessing Pop-up Magazine’s first “live issue” in New York. The collaboration with ESPN The Magazine didn’t disappoint. We didn’t quite know what to expect when the lights went down in NYU’s Skirball Center for The Performing Arts, because, well, what the hell is a “live magazine?” Turns out, it’s a lot of fun.

The evening featured a slew of presenters, and each person performed an original piece for that night only. Much like a magazine, it began with shorter performances in the beginning, with longer pieces to follow.

The best part about the night was how each piece was so personalized. There was “Data,” by Neil Janowitz. The stage was completely dark, aside from a long beam of light. Then, from out of nowhere, Janowitz ran – in tiny shorts – and jumped across the beam. The reason? He was illustrating how long the world record for the long jump was.

“How-To,” by Alyssa Roenigk, was a short about the best way for fans to streak sporting events. For that, a man ran through the crowd in just a thong. Highlight or lowlight – you decide.

Chad Millman Promoted at ESPN The Magazine

Chad Millman has been named the new Editor-in-Chief of ESPN The Magazine, effective June 15th. Current EIC Gary Belsky will remain an Editor-at-Large through January 2012, reports Romenesko.

Millman is currently a Senior Editor, and will take over for Belsky as the magazine makes its move to Bristol, Connecticut. Judging from ESPN’s press release, Belksy doesn’t care much for the future hood:

As we prepare for our move to Bristol, Gary’s preference was to remain primarily in New York, which we understand and appreciate. We’re fortunate to have a wonderfully talented successor already on our roster with Chad Millman, whose unique editorial vision and unparalleled knowledge of the sporting landscape we’re confident will give us a new energy and continue to make the magazine a must-read for sports fans.

Yeah, we tend to agree. New York > Bristol.
