Here’s what you missed from last week. Your Lazy Sundays round up.
A fascinating and saddening story of how one of the most electrifying players in MLB escaped from Cuba to play ball in the United States. Smugglers, cartels, extortion, and big business all play a significant role in getting Yasiel Puig to the Los Angeles Dodgers. For a guy that was born to play baseball it would be a great adventure if it weren’t actually real, and actually a normal practice. That just makes it sad. (via Los Angeles Magazine)
A Q&A with Ralph. Thanks for rereleasing the Polo Bear sweater. (via WWD)
Another Q&A with “The Chef” of the Wu-Tang clan, Mr. Raekwon. He’s not happy with the direction RZA is taking them, and is on strike from recording their latest album. He critiques RZA’s choice of production and his own contract situation, and it’s really crazy to think Wu-Tang has remained relevant from success from 20 years ago. I’m not sure if that’s impressive or disappointing. Anyway old Wu still bangs too hard to forget. (via Rolling Stone)
Once the WSJ gets a hold of a trend it’s already been trendy for 6-18 months however I’m going to pat myself on the back for advocating wool cargos for years now. Thanks WSJ for catching up this Spring and I might just take your advice and grab some this Spring as well. I can really never have enough pockets. (via the WSJ)
Apparently paying for college has gotten harder, a lot harder… A Duke University freshman has been outed for paying tuition with checks from the porn industry. Reaction has been mixed; from support, to condemnation of tuition prices, and outright rage. However she wants to pursue a law degree with the goal of helping sex workers once she’s done with the whole porn thing. So… win-win? (via NY Daily News)
Thought: It’s Easter and 4/20, celebrate accordingly.
