That’s just the scaffolding, though, on which the real charm of Empire Records is hung: For those who loved the movie, its indie versus corporate plot was always secondary. It was the movie’s depiction of misfit teens — and the interactions between them, all of which seemed so pregnant with exceptional meaning — that resonated. These characters — a good girl, a slutty girl, a gothy girl, an artist boy, an adorable weirdo, a beatnik, a too-cool rocker, a hippy stoner, a wannabe — with whom nearly any high schooler could identify or toward whom they could direct their desire. It was, as one crew member pointed out, Breakfast Club at the record store — but even weirder.

How “Empire Records” Became The Unlikely Film Of A Generation

I love Empire Records.

Hell yes.

Brilliant piece that can be summed up in the following quote:

"I don’t feel the need to explain my art to you, Warren."

Ryan Adams

The new album is sedate bad-assery at its finest.

Like, he doesn’t have to push it. No need to overdo it. Just sneak up on everyone and assassinate.

I had tickets for Santa Barbara, but misjudged my ability to change my flight. And he’s playing in the UK while I’m in the States.

NOT. GOOD.


Wrong.

Casual friend on FB is questioning the rock chops of Ryan Adams.

Dude, don’t make me unfriend you.

The @rapha cross collection is coming. A few changes this year include the inclusion of the shoes with Giro, focus on the super cross argyle graphic and still no beer koozie.


Ooh nice.

I would take the grey one, but I already have a grey Rapha long sleeve. Does that make me a tool? I mean, I got it cheap from a sample sale.

Oasis’ debut album Definitely Maybe, was released 20 years ago, on August 30, 1994. 


I’ve been consuming lots of Oasis lately. I think I know why now. Also….guuuuuh. I’m old!

That’s the nicest thing I’ve seen today.

imagine being that one guy who broke an 11 hour kindness chain

Hey sometimes you just don’t got it lmao

Wow Florida did a thing for once I am impressed

He broke the chain on purpose because “he didn’t want to be forced into doing something” and the baristas were asking people if they wanted to pay for the car behind them.

"I just don’t want to be forced into doing something," said Schorsch, who is also a part-time political consultant. "This is turning into a social phenomenon and I had to put an end to it."

… well, he sounds like fun at parties. 

Yeah, this dude totally looks like he goes out and is nice to people. Yep.

"There is a little humor being a contrarian, but I think if you really want to help, find someone that obviously needs help, like the homeless," Schorsch said.

Which is why you didn’t do that and drove to a Starbucks with the sole intention of ending something that made people happy.

All hail the Cunt Czar!

This is the kind of customer who orders a triple venti mocha Frappuccino with extra ice, then request that you put the extra in another cup.


Hello, long lost friends

I’m getting in touch with my college self this afternoon, listening to Supergrass, Pulp and early Foo.


Clarity (unfiltered) turned 6 a couple of days ago. That is nuts.
If we’re all deleted for posting songs in the next few days, just remember I love you. It’s been real, nerds. ;-)

A commuter walks through the Agora structure at the Athens 2004 Olympic Complex in Athens. The Yannis Behrakis is part of a CityLab piece on the remains of the Athens Olympic Games 10 years on

When I lived in London it was a friend of mine who was responsible for winning the Games for London. 
I hope they have a better idea of ongoing use for the facilities in the UK.

They are doing a pretty good job so far…the stadium is being modified for West Ham, and it’s also been used for the Invictus games and another athletics meet. I have friends who are learning to track cycle, and the swimming complex is open. The Olympic village is currently being converted into housing. I live less than 10 minutes’ cycle from the park, and I love heading to the park for a wander.
