A New Chapter for St. Mark's Bookshop


The sad news is that the iconic St. Mark's Booshop in the New York's East Village closed recently. The happy news is that it has reopened in its new location, on 3rd Street between First and Avenue A. Jeremiah's Vanishing New York stopped for opening weekend and has a full report HERE.


Her Love Is King


Somehow missed this incredibly fun chat between Jason Collins and Billie Jean King in the New York Times last month. Click HERE if you did, too. I can't think of anyone I respect more than BJK, although I will say that she mistakenly blamed Newsday for outing Martina Navratilova. (It was actually Steve Goldstein of the Daily News!)


  Also, great to see her with Andy Roddick yesterday in a World Team Tennis photo on Twitter!

RIP: Bear Model Chris Miklos Is Dead


Don't have many details, but heard from a mutual friend that Chris had died. His ModelMayhem page listed him as being 40 and others say they had just seen him at a pool party. Very sad news.


I see a Kickstarter for his 2015 calender still has 38 days to go on it HERE.



Are You Ready for Some Football (Players)?


The NFL season begins in 45 days, and with tight ends Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels on the loose, I'm ready.

Probing Journalism


Wait, did the Daily Mail go back in time to the early 1970s for this story???? Read HERE.

Big Boner


I've never seen "Big Brother," but my bff Mark can't seem to get enough. I guess I can see why ... now!
