Lunchtime Linkage

last monday, i bailed on the lunchtime linkage. not today. this past weekend was a blur. george zimmerman was acquitted of murder, cory monteith from ‘glee’ died + i spent all of my sunday hungover while still managing to make a grand sunday night dinner. but now it’s monday, it’s pay day.. new week, new start. if you’re in new yawk city this week, be aware it’s going to be hazy, hot + humid.

“there’s no mood, no verve, no vision to this music. it’s the sound of champagne being sprayed around an empty locker room.”

with jay-z magna carta holy grail dropping officially last week, a lot of reviews have come back + most people are not impressed. do you agree?

but while we’re on the subject of jay-z, illustrator ali graham is now on a quest to illustrate all 99 problems, one problem per day.

in case you didn’t hear the news.. instagram just introduced web embedding for their content now allowing you to add your instagram photos or videos to your blog post.

when you think about prince you’d never imagine that he has about 5 pounds’ worth of dunk-a-roos in his fridge, right? oh, but he does. prince was nice enough to let an illustrator show us what’s in his fridge.

soon new york city businesses, organizations + residents will be able to register a .nyc domain name for their sites. rest of the world, are you jealous?

a new yawk minute..

what’s going on in new york city this week? well, let’s just see:

more + more new yawkers are taking part of the unfriending of facebook. *gasp* yes, shocking.. but not really.

yelp makes a hipster heat map so you can avoid hipsters. of course, it comes to no surprise (at least to native new yawkers) that williamsburg has the most hipsters. and while we are at it, shout out to my old neighborhood: the jefferson L stop. a plethora of hipsters seem to be taking over that area. no wonder i moved.

“but let’s not forget that you’re paying for location, and the opportunities that this location ostensibly offers–and not just jobs, but culture, history + recreation.”

want to move to new yawk city? reports now show the average NYC rent passes $3,000.

i went to an ice bar in vegas with my best friend + loved it. new yawk city just opened the first ice bar at the new york hilton midtown on sixth avenue.

    After reading that article, I was like “Hmm.. they do have a point.” Sometimes I feel like my life is boring compared to the ‘Facebook lives’ friends sometime display. I dunno.. one of these days, I’ll probably remove myself from FB altogether.

    I know I’m late, but I love Jay-Z’s album. I think it’s really good, and I personally think it’s WAY better than Kanye’s!

      Agreed.
