01. America’s Football Factory
“”Where can we go drink our faces off?” he asks the receptionist. She draws us a map. While drinking a couple of beers in the hotel, Remm shows me the tattoo on his chest. It’s an outline of a shirt pocket with a pen in it. We get a taxi to town and drink enormous cans of Bud Light in grim bars while watching the Phillies get knocked out of the play-offs. Remm negotiates a taxi – he shouts at a cab driver, slams a door, shouts at a cab driver, slams a door – and we go back to the hotel. I’m so tired I’m almost asleep in the lift. Naioti and Remm go and find burgers. (They end up eating five each.)” (GQ).
02. Ithaca Beer Co. brews Phish-inspired beer, Stash IPA (Above).
“Ithaca Beer Co. is chill to announce plans for another one-off beer coming out early June called Stash. No coincidence, the aptly named Stash, is an homage to one of Ithaca Beer’s favorite jam bands, Phish. Also, no coincidence, Phish is coming to Watkins Glen International (practically our backyard) July 1-3, 2011. While you won’t likely see our homegrown tribute ale on the raceway grounds because it’s not The Official beer of Super Ball 9, you will find it on draft at a slew of craft accounts around the Finger Lakes leading up to the festival.” (Beer News).
03. Sasha Grey on Leaving Porn and Approaching Everything as Art
“Actress, musician, and photographer Sasha Grey certainly didn’t take the traditional path to fame. Best known as one of the adult-film industry’s biggest banner names, Grey made a huge splash in the porn world almost immediately after filming her first scenes at the age of 18. Five years later, Grey has officially stepped away from the X-rated side of on-camera appearances, focusing instead on traditional acting, modeling, experimental music (with her band aTelecine), and photography. Along the way, she starred in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience, picked up a recurring role on Entourage, posed for Terry Richardson, featured in videos by the Smashing Pumpkins and the Roots, and modeled for American Apparel.” (Flavorwire).
04. The 10 Biggest Upsets In Heavyweight Title Fight History
“Though the betting odds, in the U.K at least, are quite close regarding the upcoming Wladimir Klitschko Vs. David Haye heavyweight unification battle, it will be seen by many fans as a big upset if WBA champ Haye wins and adds the Ring magazine, IBO, IBF and WBO belts to his collection; it will be seen as an even bigger upset if “The Hayemaker” wins by brutal, quick KO (as he says he will).” (East Side).
