soupsoup:

…and what I plan to do when I get there.

I’m sad that I won’t get to see my great friends at Reuters everyday but I’m really excited to embark on this new journey.

Whoa. Didn’t see that coming.

I worked with the Academy and Gallery 1988 to create the official 85 Years of Oscars poster. 
Click here to see it in detail!
The brief was one of the hardest I’ve ever had; find a way to reference every single Best Picture winner from the last 85 years. 
Thanks to Gallery 1988 for putting my name forward and organising this whole shebang.

An Open Letter to Cornell Muslims and Greater Cornell Community:

On Friday February 15, 2013, an unprecedented act of bigotry took place in what many Cornell Muslims consider their safest haven. More than 60 Muslims including students, faculty, staff and community members gathered in…

Frightening events last week at Anabel Taylor. Hopefully the Muslim community there can receive stronger support from the University to prevent marginal extremists from doing such things in the future.

Why Romney Lost

Senator Lindsey Graham, as quoted by Politico:

“If I hear anybody say it was because Romney wasn’t conservative enough I’m going to go nuts,” said Graham. “We’re not losing 95 percent of African-Americans and two-thirds of Hispanics and voters under 30 because we’re not being hard-ass enough.”

Anthony Bourdain: FIGHTING MAD

anthonybourdain:

“…it came as a shock and a disappointment to turn on the TV for the last two episodes of my show, and see that someone had taken footage that me and my creative team  had shot for my show, cut it up and edited it together with scenes of a new Cadillac driving through the forest. Scenes of me, my face, and with my voice, were edited in such a way as to suggest that I might be driving that Cadillac. That, at least, I was very likely IN that Cadillac—and that if nothing else, I sure as shit was endorsing Cadillac as the vehicle of choice for my show. All this following seamlessly from the actual show so you were halfway through the damn thing before you even realized it was a commercial.”  

Anthony Bourdain doesn’t like product placement, and he’s not going to take it anymore.
