Four Pins weighs in on drugs. Great read about how empty drugs are. Drugs are rad, everyone knows that, but they’re selfish and they don’t actually solve anything. It’s not going to stop us or anyone from doing drugs, but it’s time to stop thinking that drugs make you cooler or wiser or more worldly. If your most interesting story is the one time you tripped on shrooms, you’re probably lame as fuck, homie.
Well, I was sleeping on the fact that today is EARTH DAY. Here is 10 facts about the earth from the one and only Bad Astronomer aka Phil Plait.
Back to back links from Slate? Is it because I’m lazy or because both articles are easy to read and full of rad contents? Who cares? Whales or dinosaurs, who was the biggest?!
Selectism takes a look inside the house you wish you were going home to tonight. I don’t, because my apartment is awesome and contains a sweet ass Boston terrier/pug mix. 'Maison En Bois.'
Supper Sounds: No one wants to hear Coldplay…but, this Coldplay remix on the other hand… well, check it out yourself.
Perfect photos from Dutch artist Bendnaut Smilde for a new exhibition at Ronchini Gallery, titled Antipode. The clouds are formed by adjusting the humidity and temperature of the rooms and using a fog machine to produce a small cloud. The photos are taken moments before they disappear. Beautiful, brilliant and haunting.
Things to read, watch and enjoy while scarfing down what is hopefully a lunchtime burrito.
A look back at the iPod, a device that changed the world. I should really update my iPod, it’s been years…
The NBA sucks…a lot. Drawing fouls is a technique now, jump shots are dead and Kobe didn’t even play this season. Still, dunks are fucking rad, check out the top 10.
Apple Campus 2 looks like a spaceship and that is fucking awesome. I jumped from Apple products a while ago, but everything they do is still gorgeous.
Four Pins - No One Cares What You Wear. This a great article and it’s something every well dressing person needs to admit eventually. People don’t care what you’re doing, sure no dressing like a total dick ensures people won’t automatically assume you’re a giant dick, but that’s about it. Also, that sentence was fucked. I spend money on clothes because I want to, because it makes me feels rad and because I enjoy looking great.
NPR explores the way sports movies have moved from player focused to management focused. I enjoy this shift, the front office is a place that hasn’t really been tackled in movies until now. I think this all began with Moneyball and I’m excited to see it continue.
I’m not a huge fan of Buzzfeed, but it feels like eventually everyone on the internet ends up there. Most of the time it’s complete and utter shit, but occasionally they have a post that can actually brighten your day. So, if you had a rough day…click here and start to laugh.

Finally, Clae dropped new shoes today. Everything they put out is solid, comfortable and built to last. Clae doesn’t know I exist, yet here I am, pimpin’ their shoes out.
Before I get to the links, I want to let everyone know that last night I witnessed The Pizza Underground. This is a band (of 5 people with just percussion and guitar) that covers various songs, but all the lyrics are about pizza. The most important part is one of the members is none other than Macaulay Culkin. I honestly can’t put into words a description for the show. I will say it seems like singing about pizza truly makes Culkin happy. It was magical.
One last, but important thing. If you’re in Boston today, as I am try and make it down to Boylston street to support the brave, strong and resilient runners of the Boston Marathon. Be kind to the added security too, I’ve already seen to many people complain about the extra effort it takes to move around Boston, or how sick they are of Boston Strong. Has it been overused? Yes, but still there’s no need to be an asshole just because your slightly annoyed.
Thrillist has a list of best donut shops in the US. I am constantly disappointed with Providence’s lack of a donut scene. Dunkin’ doesn’t count.
Check out Emma Phillips’s photos of a salt mine in Australia. The photos transport you to a place that does not feel of this planet. Minimal, washed out and incredible.
