Read Up On It – For November 25th, 2011
Yesterday we posted an early version of Read Up On It, since we were in the mood to toot our own horn. We now return to our regularly scheduled edition of our favorite readings of the past week..
Aziz Ansari, David Change and James Murphy grace the inside of GQ. We thank them for it.
- I can’t get over how much I love this story. GQ notices a photo tweeted by Aziz Ansari of him, LCD Soundystem/DFA label owner James Murphy and Momofuku’s David Chang, with the tagline: “”David Chang, @lcdsoundsystem, and myself want to go to Tokyo and eat food. Can some magazine/Travel Channel pay.” GQ obliges.
- GQ hits the ball out of the park lately with some of its food writing. Their chef of the year? A vaguely inarticulate man whom you’ve probably never seen on television.
- The University of King’s College’s journalism program publishes a newspaper for most of the academic year. In this issue, they take on shark finning.
- The CBC posts possibly good news for lobster fishermen in south western Nova Scotia.
- The Washington Post casts light on an interesting situation in Afghanistan: an american man, a slaughterhouse, former insurgents and a great story.
- It’s Thanksgiving for our american cousins, so The Atlantic posits that when it comes to heritage breed turkeys, caveat emptor, but please do buy one.
- On the blog side of things, one mother asks, How do I get my kids to eat animal hearts?
