Pivo Divo

Shoot.    I still don't like McNally restaurants. Or Sonic Youth.

"Penske told people that the reenergized trade magazine was going to be “The Economist of Hollywood.” It’s still a duller read than The Hollywood Reporter (“Hollywood doesn’t read The Economist,” says one industry publicist)."

"Writing in the Atlantic, the historian David Greenberg reported that as Kefauver’s 1956 vice presidential campaign bus pulled into an Upper Midwest town, the candidate was heard to exclaim (within earshot of The New York Times’s Russell Baker), “I gotta fuck!”"

I just turned off voicemail on my phone. You have to call AT&T to make that happen. I feel much better living in the 21st Century. And I also feel better saving all that collective time from those leaving voicemails and me listening to voicemails. So much waste…saved!

Oh man you can do that? I am so in.

People say you had to be in Paris in the ’20s or New York in the ’80s. The sad truth of our contemporary moment seems to be only that you no longer need to be anywhere in particular anymore.

The brunch is all the same.

How Hipsters Ruined Paris (via david-noel)

I feel like the frog being boiled slowly without knowing that the water temp is heating up. You look up and suddenly the bland hipster encroachment is a reality.  

The same graffiti, garage bands, farm to table brunch, bacon worship, David Chang bar seating ripoffs, ice cream lines, sleeve tattoos, 50s boho, woodsman beards, steampunk mustaches, Spotify playlists, mixologists wanna-bes, bone marrow entrees, kale salad starters, salted olive oil whatever desserts, media cubicle junkies doubling as foodies.. from Brooklyn to Ossington to SF Mission to London’s East End to Berlin and Sweden and god knows where.

But I do have one thing to thank hipster culture for and that’s the sweet sweet draughts of coffee that they’ve started to commoditize across the world.

Seriously though, if I had to take hipster standardization over the suburbanization of America.. it’s an easy choice. But I think in our rush to anoint everything served to us by long limbed waifish twentysomethings as desirable, perhaps we’re pushing aside ideas and communities and geographies of real worth.  It’s good to be reminded of history. It’s good to respect the world’s diversity.

Feb. 3, 1954: Though Mr. Chuckles, a spotted cat native to Central and South America known as a margay, was terrifying to 2-year-old William J. Clarke III — to clarify, he is the one in the cage — at the Empire Cat Club’s Annual Championship Show at the Hotel Belmont Plaza, it was the shorthair Ginger, “an unimpressed individualist from the alleys,” who sent Mr. Chuckles to an “undignified retreat” behind a chair, The Times reported. Wu Oedipus, a Siamese kitten, watched the scene from inside the brandy snifter he had gotten stuck in. Photo: Ernie Sisto/The New York Times

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
"Lariat"

Malkmus, with a very clever take on the “lyrics video” form. I kinda wish this wasn’t the first single for the new album but hey, it’s good.
