The Sharing Economy Is About Desperation -- NYMag

RT @kevinroose: To understand the success of Uber/Lyft/Airbnb, you have to factor in a struggling economy. nym.ag/1nrrADC

Cliven Bundy’s Racist Rant Captured on Video -- NYMag

nymag.com — Like everyone else to ever be quoted saying something untoward, Nevada rancher and new conservative folk hero Cliven Bundy, who just happens to be a huge racist, said this afternoon that his comments about black Americans being better off as slaves, as published in the New York Times , were inaccurate and taken out of context.
RT @intelligencer: Cliven Bundy’s Racist Rant Captured on Video, Obliterating Claim He Was Misquoted, Not Racist nym.ag/1f7J71p
Bundy supports a path to citizenship (!): "We need to have those people join us and be with us" nym.ag/1mEffcz

Etsy, the Place of Dreams Deferred

nymag.com — Sometimes a garment haunts you. I have coveted so much clothing throughout the years that, for reasons of cost or practicality, I didn't buy when I had the opportunity - glittery Marc Jacobs mary janes; a kelly-green Tsumori Chisato frock; Tom Ford for Yves Saint Laurent sandals with little cherries on the toe.

William Cohan Interview on Duke Lacrosse Scandal -- NYMag

nymag.com — Everyone knows some version of the story: In 2006, three white players from Duke's lacrosse team were accused of raping a black woman hired to strip at a private party off-campus.

Ranking John Sterling’s New Catchphrases -- NYMag

nymag.com — A new baseball season means lots of new bizarre home-run calls from Yankees announcer and catchphrase enthusiast John Sterling, who personalizes them for each member of the team. (It was around this time last year we were introduced to Sterling's perfect, insane call for Vernon Wells: "The Bronx is Vernon.") Here, a look at this year's class of new catchphrases, in ascending order of how crazy they are.
"This particular version of the call is classic Sterling, since, you know, it wasn’t actually a home run." nymag.com/daily/intellig…

New York Magazine

Why NYMag.com Was Down Today -- NYMag

nymag.com — As you may have noticed, the New York magazine website - including Intelligencer, The Cut, Grub Street, and Vulture - was inaccessible for most of Wednesday afternoon.

Upon leaving the Michelin-starred restaurant featured in Jiro Dream of Sushi, Abe said Obama proclaimed it the "best sushi I've ever had in my life." So why didn't he finish it?!
