  • A visit with J.P. Donleavy, now 88 and still legendary for his rowdy comic novel “The Ginger Man.”
  • The Manolo thinks that an impoverished young woman just starting her first job should, despite her lack of means, invest in quality flat shoes.
  • “I was fully comfortable with the photo shoot and went with it,” says a young Muslim woman who posed topless for an American Apparel ad. Ever so slightly NSFW.
  • A look back at the career of Romy Schneider, a German actress who helped define Euro-sophisticated beauty and chic in the 1950s and 1960s.
  • Some stunning photos of African tribal people.
  • “What the hell you are doing in the capital of ancient Russia, Victoria Nuland?” asks the interesting Russian nationalist Alexander Dugin. I don’t know what to make of what’s going on in Ukraine but I found his piece very interesting anyway.
  • Steve Sailer takes a look at an L.A. Times article about overcrowding in the L.A. area. Whatever could be causing it?
  • Honolulu and New York City tie for the title of America’s most overpriced city.
  • Fun to see saturated fat start to be de-demonized. Shouldn’t we be able to sue the health experts who told us for four decades to avoid saturated fat?
  • What’s the point if we can’t have fun?” asks anarchist and pot-stirrer David Graeber.
  • Lloyd Fonvielle considers the near-total absence of zooms in “The Godfather.” If you haven’t done so already, please enjoy our interview with Lloyd, a smart guy and a wonderful writer who’s had a very interesting career.
  • An interview with the Duke porn star. How are her parents taking the news?
  • Don’t forget to visit our Tumblr blog, where we share some of the twisted and foul things that stir our libidos. NSFW to the maxxx.

    Given her track record, I’m not quite sure what Victoria Nuland is doing in anyone’s capital, ancient or otherwise. Has this woman ever been right about anything? But I’m sure I must just be missing something.
