I see Matt Yglesias is doing a sunrise picture... but it's for politics, not, apparently, for any love of nature.

“I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting sun.” pic.twitter.com/tKtzHmJ2gO— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) November 2, 2020 I've got 2 poetry posts this morning, and I thought Yglesias's quote might be another poem...

Da Brat on Relationship With Allen Iverson: I Used to Wake Up & Jerk Him Off Every Morning

Back in June, Da Brat came out as bisexual in an exclusive interview with Variety just months after she took to Instagram to confirm that she was in a serious relationship with a woman named Jesseca Dupart. But at one time, DaBrat was dating and sleeping with former NBA star Allen Iverson. In a recent interview with Kandi Burruss on Burruss’ “Speak On It” YouTube show, Brat went into great detail about her relationship with the NBA legend, and admitted to being a “domesticated” woman who likes t...

Behold the First Underwater Portrait in the History of Photography (Circa 1899)

The image above may at first look like a plate from a Jules Verne novel, or perhaps a still from one of Georges Méliès' more fantastical moving pictures. It does indeed come from fin de siècle France, a time and place in which Verne, Méliès, and many other imaginative creators lived and worked, but it is in fact a genuine underwater photograph — or rather, a genuine underwater portrait, and the first example of such a thing in photographic history. Taken in the 1890s (most likely 1899) by biolo...

Penfold Golf Balls: Another Direct-To-Consumer Brand?

Golf brands come and golf brands go. That’s simply the way of the world. There was a time when Penfold Golf was the name in golf balls in Europe. That time, however, is long gone. So, it’s fair to ask why is an English squash pro living in Philly trying to bring the brand back in North America? It’s also fair to ask if we really need another Direct-to-Consumer golf ball brand. Penfold’s history is a fascinating look at the way things used to be. The new Penfold Golf is an interesting look at the...

Lakers’ Quinn Cook keeps showing passion for his hoops roots

Quinn Cook’s online cul-de-sac is bursting with challengers. For the few weeks in April when Cook hosted a nightly marathon Instagram live feed, it drew all levels of players. He would air live feeds chatting with Kevin Durant and Victor Oladipo, All-Stars who hail from the same region in Maryland where Cook grew up. But he also would allow cameos from D.C.-area streetballers, whose names are known only in gyms and playgrounds, and who inevitably want a piece of him. It matters little that the L...
