peter zumthor tweaked his plans for the redesign of LACMA(luster), mainly by scooting away from the la brea tar pits, which are still pretty active fossil farms, and stretching over wilshire boulevard. also, frank gehry throws some real shade about the fact that zumthor basically just designed a big tar pit in plan.



this adorable little old hollywood statutory rape movie looks so good!

melissa, were you in memphis this weekend, or was this barbara?

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Memphis Zoo officials have banned a woman after saying she climbed over a barrier to the enclosure where lions are kept and tried to feed them cookies.
The unidentified woman's actions were reported by other zoo patrons, who saw her jump the barrier and heard her singing to the animals. (via)

Communist Panda World Cup Predictor UPDATE

Guess what?!?! China spoiled our plans for a perfect bracket by BANNING these cuties from picking the winners...something about "safety and health reasons" and "human overexposure". #oyrchina

The good news is that they picked the next best thing to play and overdose on treats: TURTLES! I couldn't find very many cute photos of the communist turtle named Big Head but that's probably bc he is ashamed. Rumor has it Big Head picked losers like England, Japan, & Spain as winners (me too big head, me too-except Japan, WHAT WAS HE THINKING...like Japan could ever be good at futbol). Here's an action shot:

looking goood turtle.

FIFA tip of the day: if you are looking to improve your score (im looking at you ifyoumakeit) jump on the Shaheen bandwagon. This adorable little puppeh is giving our deceased octopussy friend a run for his money and also has a perfect picking record so far.

as a bonus our Shaheen already has a movie gig...here's his animated debut!!

the hubble telescope has been taking photos of this star explosion for the past four years.
in other star related news, i downloaded the "SkyView Free" app on my iphone this weekend and i highly recommend it if you are going to be looking up at all during these upcoming summer nights. it gives you all the information you are looking for and has some handy adjustable features. YOU ARE IN SPACE.

are you excited about your new emojis?

the magical emoticon guild banded together and released 250 new emojis yesterday. now all we have to do is wait for apple to render them and update their emoji library (july?). here is a list of the new ones. i can't wait to see how thomas wilhelm will pervert these.

in other futbol news... USA! USA! USA! USA!

we beat the shit out of that tiny West African country!

here is an abbreviated version of the nymag gif recap

1) clint dempsey scored almost immediately

2) cheers cheers cheers unexpected delight

3) clint dempsey gets kicked in the face and it looks like his nose is broken but it isnt

4) ghana scores to tie the game in the 82nd minute

5) surprise! four minutes later an american boy knocks the ball in with his head and we're winning again!


keekerz speakerz

i can't stop listening to courtney barnett's album. try it on for size. old timey sound with a bit of twang, clever lyrics. it's a real treat.

these two tornados scissored all over nebraska yesterday.

the twooooooooooo sisters.
A storm in Nebraska produced an extremely rare pair of tornadoes this evening as it tracked through the northeastern part of the state. Multiple vortices are common in the strongest tornadoes (think Joplin), but two large, distinct tornadoes side-by-side like this is almost unprecedented. (via)
did you know that gawker has a weather-related subset called the vane? that is right up my tornado alley.

important futbol stuff - hot guys edition

thank you PAPER magazine (experts at all things beautiful) for putting together this extensive list of the hotties that are going to make watching futbol enjoyable for the next few weeks. who do you think is the hottest of the hot??? leave your faves in the comments. Vogue has a pretty good list too.

my picks:

look at this nypost headline


Jang allegedly boasted that he “wanted to be on the news” and was planning a “tragedy,” according to a criminal complaint.
The comments prompted the woman to go to cops.
She told cops that she saw Jang draw a map of the office, putting red “Xs” where workers he hated sat. Around her seat, and his own, he put a circle.
The disturbed man was going to warn her not to come to work when he planned to carry out the alleged attack, the complaint said.
He had also asked about the time of the next meeting “where everyone from work would be together” — and said he’d “stay quiet until then,” court papers said.
When she confronted him about the creepy diagram, he “crumpled it up and put it in his pocket, telling her it was ‘nothing.’ ”


U! S! A! U! S! A!

well, this is pretty short notice.

i just got to work and realized the world cup is starting this afternoon. thought maybe we should do a 2Pz bracket to force our american selves to care. JOIN RIGHT HERE!

i'm going to kill you hoes.

k. michelle's answer

Get your shovels out...

some rich bitch is hiding money in Manhattan and Brooklyn this weekend. As in, literal buried treasure.

Does anyone else feel like the idea of  paying it forward/spreading the wealth is going to be ruined by greedy, violent, resourceful New Yorkers?

which psychic animal will you get your world cup predictions from?

here are your options:

shaheen and waslawi, the mama and baby camelz. they signal their picks by eating from piles of "mushed up dates" placed next to country flags.

nelly the elephant. i think her method is fairly self-explanatory. 

an unnamed baby panda of china's choosing. the cub (who has been invited to make predictions, but not yet introduced to the world) will climb trees with flags on 'em.


really normal dog stuff

thx emilube!

longest shake shack line in history

i hope you werent planning to enjoy one of those special anniversary edition shake shack burgers we told you about, because...
The original Shake Shack in Madison Square Park opened for business some 30 minutes ago, but it apparently has already attracted the longest line of customers ever recorded in the burger chainlet's ten-year history. Of course, Shake Shack is running a promotion this week in which five notable chefs contributed a limited edition burger, to be served one day only, and only 1,000 of each, so there's that. David Chang's "Shrimp Stack" burger is now being served, and while the ever-trusty Shack Cam shows the line is moving, it also stretches around the park. And then some. (via)

don't never watch this - anything goes!

this is a baby goat stampede.

get acquainted because DUMBO is about to get a goat farm art installation:
Artist Andrea Reynosa, who lives across the street from the “rat-infested, neglected lot” at 1 John Street that will be turned into a 42-condo development this summer, built a 6,000-sq-ft field full of green clovers on the site that will “blush crimson” (i.e. turn red) when the weather warms up.
Reynosa plans to bring in goats to “eat the clover in order to make way for condos,” reports DNAinfo, which is actually pretty neat. The installation, called John Street Pasture “was a great marriage of all of our views, including the developer, of what we wanted to do with the lot. The result is very simple and sparks a conversation about land use and sustainable agriculture in a transitioning city,” said Reynosa. The goat-free version is currently on view. (via)
