This round-up is a day late. My apologies for that. It’s also got quite a few links of a sexual nature. No apologies there because, hey, it’s the weekend.



A map illustrating the most popular baseball teams by county. (Apparently nobody cares about Canada.)


“‘Wow-sabi?’ Is that like Wasabi, but with added essence of douchebag?” A scathing review of the menu of Guy Fieri’s new Vegas restaurant.


Prince Harry racing Usain Bolt.


This wasn’t really a surprising revelation, but it’s still a fascinating read: “The Way We Board Planes Makes Absolutely No Sense.”


The Telegraph compiles the top hardest countries to get a visa.


A lovely little essay on the city-dweller’s struggle for privacy.


Sex Advice from an Uncomfortable Guy Who’s Afraid of Sex.


Denmark has taken a creative approach to combat its low birthrate – encouraging people to get it on while on vacation (video is mostly SFW).


Steven Coogan explains why he hates the song “Lady in Red” so darn much. The upside: it’s a funny interview. The downside: guess what song I now have stuck in my head.


Stars of the adult movie industry talk about what it was like to “come out” as a porn worker.


See you Monday!

    FYI, the Steve Coogan link goes to the Denmark youtube ad.

  • Take note: if you ask your husband if you can move to NYC roughly four dozen times, he will start to cave a little.
  • Incredible reading by the love of my life to a packed room at NeueHouse Madison Square. So proud of you, @randderuiter, and the amazing emcee work by @michaeliconking.
  • Re-posting this photo that @wilreynolds took of us and his youngest near the beach outside of Lisbon. We're back home now, and I can't decide what I miss more: this little guy and his brother, or Portugal. Actually, scratch that. I know.
  • This place looks like a damn fairy tale.
  • Lunch with a view of the water, and some of the best seafood of my life.
  • The entire drive from Sintra to Lisbon looks like this. It's just miles of blue sky and rocky beaches.
  • No filter. This is just what Sintra looks like.
  • This street artist does amazing collages of animals from hunks of discarded plastic he collects (part of an effort to raise awareness about some of the most vulnerable victims of pollution). They're all over Lisbon, but we managed to get a close up view of this one.
  • Thousand watt smile on the little dude, and I am done.
  • Those eyes though.
