a lady pets a giant hamster. it’s a capybara and is the largest rodent in the world. a gentle animal found in and around Venezuela, the capybara allows humans to feed and care for it.

interestingly, the catholic church classifies the animal as ‘fish.” making it rather popular to eat during lent. i’ll leave you to grapple with that theological twist.

i want to go to there. #8

story of the daptone

my song of the spring is a remake of Shuggie Otis’ inspiration information by Saron Jones and the Daptones (please refer to song du jour fer sure 4.30.09). i might be officially obsessed: erm … ringtone.

here’s a wonderful nytimesmag article from 12.07.08, entitled Soul Riviver, which talks about about the awesomeness that is Gabriel Roth, the co-owner of Daptones Records. there’s some wonderful details on the firecracker, Sharon Jones (e.g. her fanny pack = her holster) and adds one more notch to Bushwick’s renegade hip factor.

and for throwback props and good listeningtimes: here’s the original Shuggie Otis version o’ Inspiration Information.

this is a long video, but i would eat every minute of it for how much i’d have liked to have been there … in paris … even up 11 flights of stairs … to sing with yeasayer. but then, i probs would’ve been the chick who rang the door bell in the middle of tightrope. cause i tend to have really awesome social timing like that.

heather’s prodigal portrait

Posted in on human behavior, the happy by huhinteresting on May 1, 2009

my friend heather, of heather’s in the east village, hung one of her favorite paintings in her bar: this portrait of a young man in what appears to be a bowling shirt.

heathers_painting

it’s been one of the main focal points of her establishment as people debate who he resembles the most (my money’s on DJ from roseanne). a few months back a girl came into the bar on a raucous fall night and stole him right off the wall right from under the bar’s proverbial nose. the entire thing was caught on tape and over the next few weeks heather posted signs with images of the girl-thief. she’s been vigilant about posting and reposting her signs.

well, a few weeks ago the painting arrived on heather’s doorstep. thus making this painting: the prodigal portrait. and a great story. to the girl who stole the painting: while you are an asshole, you did a good thing by giving it back.

we all love that painting so.
