We love George Lois. He is the original Mad Man and he did the best magazine covers in the history of the medium. Raymond especially loves him after spending time with Lois in his Manhattan apartment. Now, Lois is the cover subject of It’s Nice That, which we will now buy and cherish.

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.”

On the Citrus Report, we are big fans of Steve Martin. We have always felt with his writing, acting, comedy, musicianship, and playwright skills, he is a leading talent in all of American arts. His new novel shows it, with “An Object of Beauty” being set in the Manhattan art scene, Martin shows off a bit of his all-around knowing and skill.

The NY Times wrote a favorable piece on Mr Martin on their site, and it definitely has us wanting to read more. Check it out here.

How bedbugs invaded NYC and caused the panic

f3d7194326ug 005.jpg How bedbugs invaded NYC and caused the panic wall street journal Summer story nyc niketown News manhattan infestation bedbug avenue niketown

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.”

If you are President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran and you come to NYC, about a stones throw from the site of the 9/11 plane smash into the WTO, and you call out the USA in front of the United Nations for “orchestrating” the whole thing to save Israel,  you officially do not give a fuck if you start a war. He basically just dared the US and its allies to drop some bombs on Tehran. Not pretty. For anyone. Wonder where he ate in Manhattan last night?

Bed bugs at Niketown NYC, makes sense and no sense

Posted from The Citrus Report

e61c4664c9ketown.jpg Bed bugs at Niketown NYC, makes sense and no sense street yelp street running shoes reopen because rampant closed poor niketown manhattan culture closed citrus report bugs bed bugs

Yes, that big ass Niketown at 57th and 5th in Manhattan has a bed bug problem. Yes, bed bugs. Rampant. Closed the store down. And this poor Spanish tourist was way too optimistic.

Juan Saez, 33, was disappointed when his trip to buy two pairs of running shoes was bugged out. “It’s a shame,” he said. “I think they should make a discount of 50% when they reopen because of the bugs. That would be fair.”

Probably not going to happen, but you may get a pair of Air Maxes to carry your bed bugs into your home, though!

You know what is so great about 2010? They have made a Bed Bugs Niketown 57 Street Yelp page. So Nouveau style.
