Author Ved Mehta, 86

Known for a 12-volume autobiography and more than a dozen more books, many of which got their start as New Yorker articles (he was a staff writer for decades), he had a carefully honed prose style full of vivid description — despite the fact that he had been blind from age 3. (His sense of hearing was said to be extraordinary.) – The New York Times

"Pickles has a comfortable relationship with nihilism.... 'I grew up in the punk-rock scene,' he said. 'And Trump was like punk rock. It’s, like, anti-establishment.'"

"He attended the University of Florida, where he was an English major and a liberal. 'I’ve taken basket weaving and read about the Black prison experience,' he said, with a snicker. (In his shop, Fat Enzo’s, murals of Mark Twain and Hunter S. Thompson share wall space with Huey Long.) He explained that after his father died, in 2015, he sought out new male camaraderie. The Proud Boys filled a vacuum. He claims to have joined not because they are a hate group (as designated by the Southern Povert...

Warner Bros. Sets ‘Mad Max’ Prequel ‘Furiosa’ for 2023 Along with ‘Coyote vs ACME’ and ‘The Color Purple’ Musical

Warner Bros. Pictures will shake up the theatrical distribution model next year by releasing every single one of their movies simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max. However, for those expecting the studio to keep that model going in years to come, they seem to have rebuked that speculation by setting 2023 global theatrical release dates for the Mad Max prequel Furiosa, the Looney Tunes-inspired live-action/animated hybrid Coyote vs. Acme, and the big screen version of the Tony Award-winning...

How The New Yorker Got Tricked In One Of Its Best-Known Articles

“This week, The New Yorker attached its own extraordinary editor’s note to a National Magazine Award–winning 2018 article by staff writer and novelist Elif Batuman about Japan’s so-called rent-a-family industry, in which desperate and lonely people hire actors to play their absent fathers, wives, children, and so on. The New Yorker reported that three central figures in the story had ‘made false biographical claims to Batuman and to a fact checker,’ undermining the veracity of large swathes of ...

The far-left cynically goes after Dianne Feinstein

Because California Sen. Kamala Harris has been elevated to the vice presidency, Gov. Gavin Newsom will have an opportunity to appoint her replacement as California’s junior U.S. senator. It goes without saying that Newsom has a big decision to make here. He should go out for a nice, intimate, expensive dinner with 24 of his closest advisors, lobbyists and friends and work this out. This choice isn’t without hazard for the warden. Due to the racial-identity politics that have defined the modern l...

New York Times Spews A Lot Of Hot Garbage About Jeffrey Toobin

Intellectual masturbation about masturbation is so very meta!
Tags: Technology, Television, Law, New York Times, New Yorker, Zoom, Jeffrey Toobin, Media and Journalism

"I think 27 years of superb reporting and commitment to The New Yorker should have been weighed against an incident that horribly embarrassed the magazine but mostly embarrassed himself."

Said Tina Brown, the former editor of The New Yorker, quoted in "The Undoing of Jeffrey Toobin How a leading man of legal journalism lost his sweetest gig" (NYT).  Malcolm Gladwell, an important New Yorker writer, said: "I read the Condé Nast news release, and I was puzzled because I couldn’t find any intellectual justification for what they were doing. They just assumed he had done something terrible, but never told us what the terrible thing was. And my only feeling — the only way I could ex...

Will Newsom have another Senate seat to fill?

Gov. Gavin Newsom already faces the complicated chore of filling several high-profile political positions. He’ll have a U.S. Senate seat to fill after Kamala Harris is sworn in as vice president. He’ll also name a new state attorney general if Xavier Becerra wins Senate confirmation as President-elect Joe Biden’s health and human services secretary. Thirdly, if he elevates California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to the Senate as Harris’ successor, as widely expected, he’ll appoint someone to ...

Why did Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms turn down a position in Joe Biden's cabinet?

Is it that she wants to keep her political path separate and independent from Biden's or just that the offer wasn't good enough?Bloomberg reports:Bottoms had been rumored to be under consideration to be secretary of Housing and Urban Development or to head the Small Business Administration, a cabinet-level post. A reporter for the New Yorker said Friday she’d been offered the less prestigious role of ambassador to the Bahamas. The transition denied that report on Friday, and Taylor did again Sat...

Comment on potato and leek gratin by Sara

In reply to Johanna. Thank you for a perfectly decadent, delicious, and impressive (but super easy) dish. Made it with Russet potatoes because that’s what I had. Prepped it the day before through the first 30 min bake, refrigerated overnight, and then took it out a half hour before putting the cheese and breadcrumbs on and baking for another 50 min or so.

Outdoor dining at The Village at Westfield Topanga – 4 delicious options

And though indoor eating isn’t possible for the foreseeable future, as long as the weather continues to be summery, sitting on the mall, watching local trendies and high-steppers march about on ...

Today’s NY Times has a story about the tailors of Savile Row; my wife was reading it when she called me over and showed me this bit: Both the tuxedo and the bowler hat were invented here, and when the suit emerged as the uniform of capitalism, the street set the gold standard for craft and durability. Its history and reputation are stellar enough that the name has found its way into at least one language. The Japanese word for “business suit” is sebiro. (Say it out loud.)
