“The Uncle Funky – Ricky Powell Documentary” (New Jack Cornballs – Go Back to Schmucksville).(VIDEO)
Spine TV spent some time with legendary street photographer/man about downtown/animal lover/transistor radio enthusiast/philosopher/new jack cornball eradicator, Ricky Powell. And the result is this quintessentially Ricky 10-minute documentary film. In a series of short vignettes, we’re privy to Rickford lamenting the high “new jack corn ball” quotient in his West Village neighborhood, feeding squirrels in the park, discussing vegetarianism, and even sharing some thoughts on the passing of Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys – with whom Rick rolled regularly in the ’80s and early ’90s.
