When I’m in a happy state of mind, I often am in Los Angeles, recently you know those Fantasy Tour vans that go around, I don’t know what they’re looking at, they’re looking at studios and things like that, when I pass them in my car sometimes I roll down the window and point myself out to them. Sometimes they don’t notice me, and I’ll go “OK never mind”, but sometimes they go “Oh ladies and gentleman, to the right we have Jeff Goldblum.”

A few years ago, some friends and I went to New York to see Martin McDonagh’s A Behanding in Spokane. Afterward we hung around the stage door, like good dorks, waiting for really any member of the bangin’ cast. Instead, the door opened and out walked Jeff Goldblum, who was NOT in the play. There was a short, silent moment, then someone shouted out, “Jeff Goldblum, I love your work!” And he said, “Thank you, thank you,” and waved, graciously, and as this was happening Sam Rockwell came zipping out behind him on a bicycle and disappeared down the street. By the time the crowd had swiveled their attention back to Goldblum, he was gone.

And that was the best time I witnessed Jeff Goldblum being a smokescreen for Sam Rockwell.

It should be noted that Sam Rockwell was wearing full-on cycling spandex, too.

Before Moby-Dick there was Mocha Dick—not a coffee-chocolate phallus but “a real-life whale … who fought off whalers for decades before being killed by harpoon.” It was a magazine story about Mocha that inspired Melville to write his novel; now, in a new illustrated book, Mocha Dick: The Legend and the Fury, the original whale gets his due.

Never forget that time I worked in my college art museum and had to give tours of our giant, inflatable, felt sculpture of a sperm whale named Mocha Dick… to high schoolers.

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

That jaw! Those eyes! That hair! If the $10 bill is anything to go by, Alexander Hamilton was one of our handsomest Founding Fathers. But Hamilton’s had a bit of help over the years from artists at the Bureau of Engraving & Printing – resulting in a “Hollywoodized” Hamilton, as biographer Ron Chernow labeled it. In 2010, Newsweek even asked a plastic surgeon to give his assessment of the rather substantial changes in Hamilton’s portrait from the 1914 version (at left), to the redesign in 2000 (center), and the updated 2005 $10 bill (at right). Hotness definitely INCREASING! 

Is this a little institutional bias toward the first Secretary of the Treasury, perhaps? Just something we’re thinking about as we work on our history of money show!

In high school, I startled my AP U.S. History teacher by pulling out a $10 bill to prove to a friend that Alexander Hamilton was “so good-looking!”

"If this were any other class," said my teacher, "I would think there was a drug deal going on. But somehow I believe you when you say you’re just appreciating a handsome historical figure."

When one of the editors asked me about my weekend plans, and I told him a friend and I were going to visit a farm we used to go to in college, he was right to laugh. But he was wrong to think it was merely a joke.

Cricket Creek Farm is serious business. How did you spend your Labor Day weekend?
