  • City officials at the time proposed fitting out deep underground stations with shelter rooms that had plumbing, pantries and first aid kits. But those plans were shelved due to a lack of federal funding.

    The 190th Street station opened in 1932 and is situated underneath 140 feet of bedrock at Fort Tryon Park. It’s been 80 years since the first atom bomb exploded on Earth, and we still haven’t outfitted the station with fallout survival materials. I’m no doomsday prepper but this would be a worthy investment as the current Russian-Ukraine conflict continues to evolve.


  • From the video description: “While scavenging the deep ends of a derelict space station, a group of young space colonizers come face to face with the most terrifying life form in the universe.”

  • youtube.com – Nathan Fielder and Benny Safdie sit down to chat with Christopher Nolan about The Curse. Nathan reveals the inspiration for the series. A great talk that wanders around a range of creative angles with no spoilers. An unresistible roundtable that can’t be missed.


  • @filmatic via Instagram – The Art of Character Transformation in ‘Poor Things’. The look of Willem Dafoe as Dr. Godwin Baxter is wonderful. Always fun to get to see behind-the-scenes with this kind of stuff.

  • theverge.com – shame to see a project like this spin down. We desperately need a new firehose for news and media. Twitter is dead. Threads isn’t cutting it. Reddit is a shitshow. Artifact showed some real promise, but in the end, it seems the AI-powered recommendation engine and service never really took off.
