I love NY Magazine’s weekly approval matrix, mainly because everything in the bottom right quadrant holds a special place in my heart. This week is no exception: Andy Samberg posing as a 70’s tennis player on the cover of the Times magazine? Yes, please! Ryan Gosling breaking up a fight over art in the East Village? Hubba hubba. My only complaint is that Bloomberg’s fear mongering approach to Irene isn’t included at all, but c’est la vie.
Everybody in New York is freaking out about Hurricane Irene. I learned on NPR this morning that post-Katrina one of the most on-demand items at Walmart was Strawberry Pop Tarts, A.K.A. my favorite breakfast candy. Also on Walmart’s list: beer and dog food. ‘Merica. Loves it. Anyways, I plan on stocking up on my favorite treats and so should you.
