PHOTO of the day | July 17, 2014 | huntingtonlibrary | City Hall poses for a snapshot with friends from the Los Angeles Times—including Harry and Marian Otis Chandler—back in the 1930s. This photogenic building was the tallest kid in town for decades, mugging for the likes of famed architectural photographer Julius Shulman. The Getty has the goods.

George CLOONEY 1 | Daily Mail 0 | What’s the Daily Mail to George Clooney? When the Mail insults a celebrity in Britain, it antagonizes exactly one constituency: the celebrity. But with the lie about Clooney it has also scuttled whatever solidarity it might have had with the American press, while alerting the American public to the fact that, as Will Oremus wrote at Slate, “it does not deserve to be taken seriously.” | George Clooney’s fiancee, distinguished human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin | [#kidpost]

The profuse pleasures of ‘Boyhood’ spring not from amazement but from recognition—from saying, Yes, that’s true, and that feels right, or that’s how it was for me, too.
Anthony Lane on Richard Linklater’s twelve-year masterpiece: http://nyr.kr/U6Pgkk (via newyorker)

92y | We have our first major Oscar contender of the year! Boyhood is getting rave reviews. Before the film hit theaters, director Richard Linklater came to 92Y to discuss his latest project with Indiewire's Eric Kohn and the film’s young star Ellar Coltrane. In this clip from the event, Linklater describes the challenges of making the movie, which was filmed over the course of 12 years with the same cast.

Have you seen Boyhood yet? What did you think?

Why do you eat so much poutine? — Asked by otter-bocks-cub

noodlesandbeef:

Excuse you.

I’ll tell you why I eat so much damn poutine.

image

Look at that.  LOOK AT IT.  Pulled pork over fries with cheese curds.  Its like staring into the FACE OF GOD and he tells you YOU ARE WORTHY OF EATING ME.

image

Oh my god, is that…?  YES IT IS: Japanese curry chicken over yukon gold fries!!!  Salty, Spicy, Sweet, Umami…what is this?!  A FIFTH FLAVOUR?!?!  The best elements of every flavour combine to unlock the ULTIMATE FORM OF TASTE INCARNATE: poutine.

image

Have you ever eaten something so incredible you cried?  Meet duck confit poutine: self-actualization as food.  You are special, you are loved, you are worthy, you are wanted…and poutine has brought you there.

image

Behold: classic poutine.  Deceivingly simple.  You’d never know a life changing experience was just a bite away.

If you could capture the human condition—love, loss, joy, sadness, ecstasy, pokemon—into food, you would have a recipe for classic poutine.

What I’m saying is: you have not lived until you’ve poutine.

Two blocks West on Wilshire | obeygiant | PEACE TREE MURAL COMPLETE // LOS ANGELES |
The crew and I finished the Peace Tree mural on The Line Hotel yesterday afternoon. I’m very happy with how the mural turned out and how it works with the building’s architecture. The Line has a bunch of cool art in the interior as well as a great D*Face mural on the exterior, so I’m grateful to be situated in a bit of a creative oasis. Thanks to @thelinehotel team for the assistance and hospitality, to @jonathanfurlong for the great photos, and to @nkb_bluecollar @zagnutz and @bomit for the help painting! -Shepard #obeygiant #shepardfairey #thelinehotel | http://bit.ly/1w8Nknz | [#kidpost]
