who in the hell put that puppy in the room with that giant kitty

via The 7-year-old Dachshund's name is Milo, and his feline friend's name is Bonedigger. Apparently the two have been "inseparable" since Bonedigger was born five years ago. Milo has taken it upon himself to look after the lion, who was left "mildly crippled" by a metabolic bone disease.

we were there - cellphone throwing scandal

Have you read about the theater critic who tossed a lady's cellphone across the room when she refused to stop texting during the show? You can read about it here or here or here or here or about a million other places on the internet.

If you have any other questions, you can ask me or Ms. Dangles because we were at that show! Mike's friend Dave wrote all the music and is a main performer. It is in a really cool pop-up cabaret style theater tucked under the Highline, across the street from the Standard. Anyway, we were seated about 10 feet away from those involved and I distinctly remember looking over my shoulder several times throughout the show because some drunk ladies were causing a commotion. We took to calling them the Real Housewives of NYC because it seemed like they were out for attention... the wrong kind of attention. I didn't see the slap, but I did see the woman charge down the stairs after her phone and immediately storm out through the performance space into the bar/ lobby. It is actually a great testament to the fortitude of the performers that they were able to continue seamlessly in the face of such a disruption. Go see it if you're ever in the mood for a Russian rock opera musical based on War and Peace and you want to eat dinner at a table with strangers and possible witness a battle in the ongoing cell phone culture war.

where the salmon at?

nErD aLeRt!

he did it! rob bundy single-handedly saved the folk art museum!

just kidding, he barely did anything. but hopefully diller scofidio + renfro can fiyux it.
The Museum of Modern Art has commissioned Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) to design its controversial expansion that will overtake the former American Folk Art Museum in New York. This news comes after an intense backlash from prominent architects, preservationists and critics worldwide pressured MoMA to reconsider its decision to raze the iconic, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien-design museum in order to make way for its new expansion.
In response, DS+R has requested that MoMA gives them the “time and latitude to carefully consider the entirety of the site, including the former American Folk Art Museum building, in devising an architectural solution to the inherent challenges of the project,” as stated by Glenn D. Lowry, MoMA’s director, in a memo sent on Thursday to his trustees and staff. He added, “We readily agreed to consider a range of options, and look forward to seeing their results.” (via)

it's a bangladesh miracle!

the death toll topped 1000 people today, but they also pulled out a survivor:
In a stunning development out of Bangladesh, workers cleaning up the wreckage of a collapsed garment factory have found a woman still alive after more than two weeks trapped under the debris. The building collapsed on April 24, but rescuers long ago gave up any hope of finding more survivors. Even so, The Daily Star reports that a woman was heard moaning under the pile of rubble at around 3:15 p.m. local time and was pulled free about 40 minutes later. (via)

new york drawringz

You’ve heard of scrupulous cartographers mapping our world’s cities, but did you ever think that someone could draw an entire metropolis—I mean take the time to literally draw out every building that makes up an urban landscape? While this sounds highly improbable, Brooklyn via Sydney-based illustrator James Gulliver Hancock has attempted to do just that.
In his new book All The Buildings In New York, Hancock assembles his charming and extensive drawings of some of the Big Apple’s most iconic buildings, as well as some more unfamiliar ones, into 64 pages of colorful illustrations. Described as a “love letter” to NYC, Hancock’s drawings capture its diverse architectural styles, from the brownstones of Brooklyn to the Art Deco Chrysler building. (via)

The whole thing started Wednesday when Gillard paid a visit to a Brisbane high school for a routine photo op. But the day became anything but routine as she made her way through the excited crowd of pupils, and her security detail let down its guard just enough to allow the half-eaten lunch to be hurled in her direction.

"oh, by the way, i'm still enjoying 2Pz."

The Harlem Meer, in the northeastern corner of Central Park, has long been a refuge for city people looking to indulge their inner Huck Finns, whiling away a lazy summer afternoon fishing for bass, yellow perch and black crappies.
But late last week, signs started popping up around the lake notifying anglers of the arrival of an intruder. The dreaded northern snakehead, a fierce predator common in the rivers and lakes of Asia but considered an invasive species in American waters, had been spotted.
The warning to anglers was clear: If you catch this fish, do not release it. Contact the authorities immediately. It does not belong and could radically alter the local fish population.
The snakehead is a relentless and efficient predator that devours just about everything in its path — fish, frogs, crayfish, beetles and aquatic insects. And it does not meet death easily; it is able to survive under ice or live on land for days in damp conditions. It has been called Fishzilla. (via)
