I figured since the 10 year anniversary of the Iraq War was yesterday, now would be a good time to share these photos of the worldwide anti-war protests. This one happened to be in London, where I was fortunate enough to be studying abroad in 2003. I had never seen this many people out at once in my life. Estimations were close to one million people, but it sure felt like more. It was all so moving, I remember thinking there was no way around it… the protests would just have to stop the march to war. These pictures were taken in the middle of Feb… fast-forward one month and well, we all know the rest of the story.

Playing Tennis At Grand Central

image

Seeing as how today is the 100th anniversary of Grand Central Terminal, I figured it was only appropriate to revisit this article that I had published on The Awl. For anyone that wants to know more about playing tennis at Grand Central, this piece is for you! 

Over the weekend, as Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic’s titanic battle at the Australian Open effectively put an end to the sport of tennis, I played an hour of the game inside Grand Central Terminal. Up until recently, I had no idea there was an actual, full-size tennis court inside one of the most famous train stations in the world. I would wager that many of the 70,000-plus commuters who pass through every day don’t know about it either (perhaps they missed these photographs, as I did). But there I was, tennis bag in hand, with a voucher to play for one hour at the Vanderbilt Tennis Club—so it had to be there.

The hilarious Nestle Quik commercial that got Adam West his role as Batman. Old Spice got nothing on this.
