Some rather beautiful London Underground infographics from the early 1900’s.

Love these.

Say, is that young Don Rumsfeld playing a flirty game with a geisha girl on a package of spicy nuts? Why yes, yes it is.

My series for Hearst has launched: an insider account of a year inside the administration of a small state’s governor, coping with deficits, labor unions, and the complications of being himself.

"Ultimately, I know what I’m doing and why I’m doing it. I’m trying to be a construction worker. I’m trying to make things. If people are not interested in that, fine. I just don’t give a damn. Truth is, right now two bombs could drop out of the sky and blow up this house and whatever building you’re in and just obliterate Dischord and Pitchfork. And there’ll be some people crying, there’ll be some slow singing, but for 99% of the world, it won’t even affect the fly on their soup. Most of the world never have, or ever will hear of me, Fugazi, or Pitchfork. Right now, someone just got killed in Ukraine. Do you feel any different?"

The Hangover Part III
We flew Aziz Ansari, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, and chef David Chang to Tokyo to binge eat raw fish and do lots of drunk-araoke. Sometimes Twitter dreams do come true. Writer Brett Martin was there to take it all in:

Jet lag is a funny thing. It plays tricks  on the mind. For instance, right now I could swear that I’m crammed  into a tiny karaoke room on an upper floor of a building somewhere in  Tokyo. The narrow table is covered end to end with empty bottles of  Asahi beer and Zima, jugs of whiskey and vodka, buckets of ice, huge  clear-plastic bags of luridly colored Japanese candy. There are about  ten of us in here, packed thigh to thigh on the U-shaped banquette,  under a ceiling of peeling geometrically patterned wallpaper that seems  to strobe in the fluorescent light. That’s not including the trio of  waitresses in tiny fur-trimmed Mrs. Santa Claus dresses, peering in  curiously from the door. All this is more or less plausible. The strange  part is what we’re all staring at, to all appearances a surrealist  pop-culture mash-up, bizarre even by the standards of a country known  for bizarreness: the comedian and actor Aziz Ansari (of Parks and  Recreation), the musician James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem), and the  chef David Chang (of Momofuku), in suits, arm in arm, belting out  A-Ha’s “Take On Me.”











This actually makes me very sad because it is not a television show. 
Give Aziz and James Murphy their own travel show.

Barack Obama on “Check, Please!” in August 2001.

Future leader of the free world:

“I’m not looking for some fancy presentation or, you know, extraordinarily subtle flavors. I mean, what I’m looking for is food that tastes good for a good price.”

That’s having your finger on the pulse of America.
