As the long-time chief executive curator and managing editor of Radix Man, I found Alex Williams’ article in today’s New York Times highly offensive. Clearly Mr. Williams has no idea how much effort goes into curating a blog about dudes. This blog is not written, it is curated.

Saturday’s New York Times has a pretty amazing profile of the Leonid Chernovetsky, the mayor of Ukraine’s capital and largest city, Kiev. Apparently he’s planning to run for president of Ukraine during the next election cycle, but should he ever tire of Ukrainian politics, I’m pretty sure he’s got a permanent position locked up as mayor of dudetown.
Sure he’s a lawyer and a wealthy businessman (he owns one of Ukraine’s largest banks) and, or course, he owns his own soccer team (FC Arsenal Kiev), but his similarities to other major political figures pretty much ends there. Continue reading
New York Times: “Two States Legalize Guns in Bars“
I won’t make you read the whole article: it’s Tennessee and Arizona. Don’t go there.
I’ve never seen the New York Times’ Screen Test series before. And although Superbad may be the best movie since Rushmore (I actually watched the director’s commentary and it was funny – you won’t catch me saying that about many movies), I wouldn’t really consider myself a big Seth Rogan fan.

We opened our New York Times Magazine this morning and were immediately drawn to the featured titled “What Do Women Want?“. A question we’re absolutely clueless about and are pretty thrilled that some serious journalists from the NYT are going to tackle for us. We flip to the feature to find a fairly erotic picture (for the New York Times anyway) and then read the first sentence:
Meredith Chivers is a creator of bonobo pornography.
We don’t know what bonobo means, but at this point we’re thoroughly hooked. So we read on. And that’s when things got ugly. Continue reading
It seems that NBC is supplementing it’s terrible New York Times “viral” ads with ad buys for Kings in New York City’s subway. Are we the only ones who think they stole that logo from the Freelancers Union subway ads? Just when we thought this campaign couldn’t get any worse, NBC ups the ante by stealing intellectual property from a non-profit organization. Did they at least use freelance designers for the logo?
The New York Times yesterday briefly recommended the “raucous” Wild Yaks show at Monkey Town on New Years Eve in their Ringing in the New on the Cheap article. We couldn’t agree more and we can’t help but notice a pattern.
