I’ve been without cable for about five years now. In my last year as a subscriber to Time Warner Cable, my package included internet, basic cable and one premium channel (HBO). My monthly tab was $144. I don’t miss it. Back in 2008, I made the jump to a 37″ Sony Bravia 1080p HD LCD television. Soon after, I got the original Apple TV, which I’ve since upgraded to the current model. As more offerings became available on the Apple … Continue reading
Dressed for work, I pedaled at a leisurely pace up a very busy 6th Avenue at the height of the congested work day. I wanted to see how hard/easy/fast/slow the bicycle felt as a legit way to commute around midtown.

It was brought to my attention that my original review of the Nanotech Gray Twill Suit from Indochino neglected to include a “spill test” of the suit. The fabric of the Nanotech suits from Indochino are treated with a polymer that repels water, stains and wrinkles without compromising the weight, thickness and hand of the fabric. This video is a demonstration of how the suit repels water. Read the original review and see the original video.
The legendary (and hilarious) Creative Ambassador at Large for Barney’s New York Simon Doonan discusses the somewhat accidental trajectory of his career, waxes philosophical on the the skewed perspective of gay people which makes many of them so creative, and dissects the ever-important balance of straight foods and gay foods. timestalks.com youtube.com/timestalks
To complement the release of his new single “Suit & Tie” from his forthcoming album The 20/20 Experience, Justin Timberlake enlisted the services of David Fincher, bringing the celebrated film director back to his roots: the music video. Fincher, whose extraordinary directorial résumé includes Se7en, The Social Network, Zodiac, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and, most recently, Netflix’s House of Cards, which he also produces, got his start directing music videos for the likes of Sting (“Englishman In New York”) … Continue reading
