The American pop-artist brought to life one of his signature “Temper Tot” which is a cheeky play on The Incredible Hulk and a wink to his kids Zephyr and Mars. This new Temper Tot was painted on the same wall where the Green version was made a few years ago.

A.P.C. main man does and does not interview well

Jean Touitou, founder of French fashion brand, A.P.C., says a lot of great things and really annoying things in this interview with the Wall Street Journal. The interview was done in conjunction with a few new A.P.C. shops opening in Manhattan.

A good thing: I always thought Samuel Beckett had great style.

A bad thing: “The sexiest article would be desire, I believe.”

A good thing: I don’t work on Fridays, That’s when I go see my “swing coach,” which is a pretentious way of referring to my golf instructor.

A bad thing: “To really get away, I go on my very fast, very secure Finnish motorboat.”

How bedbugs invaded NYC and caused the panic

Posted from The Citrus Report

It seemed like the story of the summer, the bedbug invasion of New York City, and even some of us in San Francisco were feeling the itch. Google headquarters in NYC, as well as the off-5th Avenue Niketown were hit hard, as well as Bloomingdale’s and a floor of the Wall Street Journal. The bugs are taking this seriously.

The Guardian recaps how bad its been, and why New Yorkers, of all people, are feeling a bit of panic. “The problem has got so bad over the last 12 months, with some 24,000 recorded complaints of infestation, that mayor Michael Bloomberg has set up a bedbug advisory board and is soon to appoint a bedbug tsar.”
