Tiny load: Inspired by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art rock, Colin Brown places a rock on a Matchbox model of a Lamborghini Miura in Griffith Park on March 10.
Bieber fans vote on new single’s artwork: Nate Jackson breaks down the difference between the two options given to Beliebers:
To the untrained eye, the difference between these two nearly identical photos seems inconsequential. Wrong. Each one tells a very specific tale — one that probably says more about the beholder than it does about Biebs himself. Behind these two equally expressionless gazes exist two very different sets of values, thoughts and fears that are worth examining.
Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

At first, this pose appears to be a classic Bieber. The sight of his hand mussing through his phantom curtain of bangs that he shed long ago denotes a nostalgic feeling for the past…
Warning! The language here isn’t family friendly so we’re linking instead of embedding. But the video was inspired by a story that Times’ staffer Henry Chu wrote: The iPhone’s Siri doesn’t seem so smart in Scotland

“We don’t often take time to think about soup — or as they say in Spanish, sopa — in our busy, Internet-obsessed lives, but we should. It there any food so widely loved and eaten, so simple or so — dare we say it — inherently democratic?”
Soup. Like a warm hug. Just want to dump it all over the newsroom and roll around in it.

Overheard at a Long Beach Coffee Shop
Man on Bluetooth, drinking coffee with a Quran spread open on the table: I had an auntie once, she lived in Bakersfield, I called her Dirty. My grandma, she hated me for that, and one day she heard me call my auntie Dirty and she went ballistic. The problem is, my grandma, she don’t speak at all—I mean she literally couldn’t speak—so she had to write everything down. So she had all this paper she write stuff down on. And when I called her Dirty she started writing it down all angry like. It was like all caps and it say: BOY I TELL YOU — Page 2— YOU BETTER WATCH—Page 3—WHAT YOU SAY—Page 4—OR IM GONNA—Page 5—WHOOP YOU. Only thing was, see, I couldn’t read no good back then, so I’d always have to ask my cousin and say ‘hey cuz, what’s grandma tryna say to me.’

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is my new hero on the urban cycling front — but neither of us is a hipster. From an interview with the Huffington Post: “I’m concerned that people that are driving cars have a level of respect for bikers, and that’s the reason that we have these bike lanes,” said LaHood. “Bikers have as much right to the streets as anybody driving a car and I am concerned about [their safety].”
The best part is this exchange, though:
Told that his heartfelt defense of bikers came off like the musings of a run-of-the-mill hipster, LaHood professed genuine confusion.
“I don’t even know what that term means,” he said.
I wonder if Villaraigosa knows he’s a hipster. I certainly didn’t know I was one until I read this. Thanks, HuffPo.
