martha, seriously... call me

new york magazine gives us Martha Stewart's week-long food diary, and low and behold... she goes to MEMPHIS to eat BBQ at CORKY'S!!!!  Of course she loves it.

 When traveling, I always make an effort to go to the best local spots. I asked some of the sales associates where I could get the best Memphis–style barbecue, and they all pointed me to the famous Corky’s BBQ, a Memphis staple. We had the most delicious Tennessee BBQ, the meat just fell off the ribs; warm hushpuppies; creamy, golden mac 'n’ cheese; fresh coleslaw to complement the spice of the ribs, and to wash it all down, a large glass of unsweetened iced tea with a slice of lemon.

according to kylie,  according to the atlantic,

"Be still all downtown gay hearts: Chloƫ Sevigny, former queen of the Beatrice, is in talks to be a cast member on the second season of American Horror Story. So, that's big enough news itself, but here's the real kicker: She'll be playing a character named Shelly the Nymphomaniac. Yes. Terrific. Signed. Done. We're on board. Toot toot, next stop FX to watch that. Well done, everyone. You've got us."

UPDATE via thomas wilhelm:

"EW has learned exclusively that Big Love‘s Chloe Sevigny is in final talks to join the second season, set to begin production this summer. Sevigny will play a character named Shelly the Nymphomaniac, who is one of the mortal enemies of Jessica Lange’s character." more

martha, call me

hanging out with martha steward sounds like a real blast: (via)

"They always think I’m drunk because I’m always tweeting in the dark, so it makes me do misspellings," said Stewart, who was sipping ... something that did not look like water. "But that’s stupid. I don’t get drunk. Please." Nor does she eat unappetizing food, like the fish she was served. "If I get hungry, I’ll just go upstairs and order a bowl of noodles from Masa," she explained, laughing. "Maybe I should call them and order. 'Hey, Masa, I’m downstairs at an event. Can you bring me some noodles?' They would love it!" 

Twitter isn't the only new-age social network Stewart has tried. "My niece is dating a guy who’s writing the definitive history of online dating. So I tried filling out the Match.com form. I couldn’t get past the first page!" she said. "The questions are so ridiculous, and they ask you to define yourself. It’s just ridiculous." (Besides, even if she could get a profile together, says Stewart, "I'd be murdered on the first date!") She has offline admirers, though, including Harvey Weinstein, who, upon seeing Stewart tweeting a photo of Raphael Saadiq's performance, told her, "You’re cool, just cool. I want to go to a rock concert with you.” What show? "Whatever she wants. Springsteen." She countered. "I’d rather go to a rap concert than a rock concert. If Eminem ever comes back, I want to go see Eminem." Perhaps they weren't a match. 

Stewart left early — maybe for those noodles — but not before making fun of Chelsea Handler's dress sotto voce. "Is that a toga? That is a very high slit. In a very odd place," said Stewart, nodding at the distinct lack of fabric near Handler's posterior. She tried to take a picture of it so she could tweet. The phones, alas, weren't cooperating.

nErD aLeRt!

“One can kill a man as easily with a dwelling as with an axe!” Artist Baptiste de Bombourg takes literal this famous damnation of Heinrich Zille, only updating the killing device from a singular ax to an arsenal of automated guns. Entitled ‘Tradition of Excellence’, De Bombourg’s hand-rendered drawings treat each of the guns as a solid mass, from which are carved a series of architectural rooms and spaces.
The drawings recall the plan drawings of medieval British castles–famously collected and studied by Louis Kahn–in which small spaces are excavated out of the thick fortress walls. Yet the “walls” of de Bombourged guns are much more thin, even nimble, with electic, non-platonic profiles that prove naturally conducive to the new spaces and programs.

ANNOUNCEMENT: the day i ate lunch with jake gyllenhaal

one of our vendors took me and rosanna and faith to lunch at abc kitchen and jake gyllenhaal was seated one table away from us and i had a freak fit. it was like that for about an hour, then he was getting up to go so i got my phone ready to snap a pic. i forgot to turn the flash off so i lit up the whole place on his way out. until we meet again jake.thats him walking away to the left of the picture.

it has recently come to my attenshion, that iiiii liiiike filum.

Samsara, a "sequel" to the 1992 non-narrative film Baraka will be released in theaters this August. I loved Baraka, and I can't wait to see Samsara (though I could do without that title font).
And if you're really just over the rainbow for non-narrative film, as I know you are, check out the Qatsi trilogy with music by Phillip Glass. Ron Fricke, the cinematographer for Baraka and Samsara, was also the cinematographer for Koyaanisqatsi, the first of the Qatsi trilogy.

jicyww: what's a yankee smell like?

we previously reported on the new stink emanating from the bronx. here's what it smells like according to the manufacturer:
The New York Yankees™ fragrance epitomizes the winning style of the greatest team in baseball, capturing a sporty and confident attitude.
This fresh, woody scent introduces an invigorating blend of sparkling Bergamot, Coriander and cool Blue Sage. As it evolves, the fragrance reveals a fusion of crisp Ivy Leaves, Orange Flower and Geranium enhanced with rich earthy Patchouli, smooth Sandalwood and Suede to create a timeless, masculine scent.

It was reviewed by the people over at deadspin and the best comment was this:
Chandler Burr, former perfume critic for T: The New York Times Style Magazine and the current curator of olfactory art at the Museum of Art and Design: "This is absolutely the pitch perfect Justin Bieber hit. You get a perfectly constructed pop hit that stays resolutely within the boundaries of comfort and familiarity but has a great hook. The boundaries of comfort and familiarities are the 1980s late 20th century masculine and the hook is a very sweet fun fruit—like a raspberry. It's the Justin Bieber of scents—if you could bottle Justin Bieber this would be it."

way to go yankees. you nailed it.

stay with me (baby)

Legend has it that when Frank Sinatra canceled a New York recording date in July 1966 (he married Mia Farrow on the 16th), the three days’ notice was not enough to refund the booking of a 46-piece orchestra. Reprise Records made calls to producers, asking if anyone could use the date, which had already been paid for. Sensing opportunity, producer Jerry Ragavoy grabbed his arranger, and they hurriedly prepared charts for a song they would have otherwise recorded on a much smaller scale. Lorraine Ellison cut the vocal of “Stay With Me” live with the orchestra; the jaded session players fought back tears as she delivered what would go down as one of the most chillingly unhinged performances in pop history. via

Back in February, scaremaster Ryan Murphy teased that the second season of American Horror Story would involve a “horror institution” on the East Coast. Now the series’ co-creator has revealed what that institution is — as well as which familiar face will be running the joint.
According to Murphy, the show’s sophomore season “is set on the East Coast at an institution for the criminally insane that is run by Jessica [Lange].” He revealed the news yesterday at a TV Academy panel in North Hollywood. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, AHS‘s season 1 episode “Birth” contained a clue about this setting; in one scene, a medium played by Sarah Paulson notes that certain places, like prisons or asylums (or Murder Houses), tend to be filled with a negative energy that feeds on trauma and pain.
But don’t expect to see Lange reprise her role as cruel, campy Constance Langdon. Instead, she’ll be playing a new character altogether — fitting, since Murphy also explained that season 2 “is set in a completely different time period.” (via)

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, President Barack Obama announced Patricia “Pat” Summitt, former head coach and current head coach emeritus of the University of Tennessee’s women’s basketball team, as a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  The Medal of Freedom is the Nation’s highest civilian honor, presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors. 

President Obama said, “Coach Summitt is an inspiration – both as the all-time winningest NCAA coach, and as someone who is willing to speak so openly and courageously about her battle with Alzheimer’s.   Pat’s gift has always been her ability to push those around her to new heights, and over the last 38 years, her unique approach has resulted in both unparalleled success on the court and unrivaled loyalty from those who know her and those whose lives she has touched.  Pat’s coaching career may be over, but I’m confident that her work is far from finished.  I look forward to awarding her this honor.”

guess what this is.

pat summit has stepped down

the winningest basketball coach in college history has made it official.

 "I've loved being the head coach at Tennessee for 38 years, but I recognize that the time has come to move into the future and to step into a new role," Summitt said in a statement. "I support Holly Warlick being named the next head coach, and I want to help ensure the stability of the program going forward. I would like to emphasize that I fully intend to continue working as head coach emeritus, mentoring and teaching life skills to our players, and I will continue my active role as a spokesperson in the fight against Alzheimer's through the Pat Summitt Foundation Fund. 

 "If anyone asks, you can find me observing practice or in my office. Coaching is the great passion of my life, and the job to me has always been an opportunity to work with our student-athletes and help them discover what they want. I will continue to make them my passion. I love our players and my fellow coaches, and that's not going to change."
