Unlikely Senator 1, Senator Baldwin?
: In response to the question if he'd ever consider running for public office, Alec Baldwin replied with "maybe." In response to what Washington needs, Ryan replies with Senator Jack Donaghy. (via Gothamist)

Squirrel at Shake Shack has superior taste to the Squirrel I saw at McDonald's circa 2000: Back in Gorton High School, me and Afif along with 3 other dudes were in this group dubbed by one of guidance counselors as "The Breakfast Club" because we'd always "illegally" leave campus to go to Dunkin Donuts or McDonalds or wherever and get breakfast during third period since we didn't have class. Now one time, when we got McDonald's breakfast and discarded a half of a hash brown near the garbage, and a squirrel picked it up and started eating it. We thought that was pretty cool but in retrospect not as cool as this "ravenous" squirrel who was at Shake Shack yesterday. (via Serious Eats New York)

Prince - Cause and Effect: Hear this ridiculous new Prince song (with fake crowd noise and rockabilly guitar riffs) and get effected or affected by it, I always confuse those two homonyms. (via Pitchfork)

Super Bowl XLVIII festivities, here we come: Rumor has it that new Meadowlands stadium (still without a name) is the front runner for the "big game" in 2014. Pretty nice, except for the fact that they'll be like Super Bowl XLVIII in New York, New York (with Empire State of Mind as it's theme) except it's in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Meet Giant George, the 7' foot Great Dane: Now you see this and are all like "obviously photoshopped" but it's apparently legit. Crazy! (via Best Week Ever)

Unlikely Senator 2 - Senator Dikembe Mutumbo
: Mutumbo Wednesday meet Mutombo Saturday! The most dominant shot blocker becomes the most dominant legislative bill blocker. (via The Onion)

25 of the Ultimate New York Songs on the Ultimate New York Playlist: So of the songs listed I'd vote for a 5 way tie between LCD Soundsystem's “New York, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down,”/Biggie's "Juicy"/Simon and Garfunkel's "Only Living Boy in New York/The Wu-Tang Clan's "C.R.E.A.M" and Velvet Underground's "I'm Waiting for the Man" for first place.

The most intriguing mystery of the week, John Clayton's ponytail: ESPN football analyst, John Clayton may or may not have a ponytail. You decide! (via Deadspin)

Where did I put my Pavement tickets?: Chuck Klosterman's interview with Pavement's Stephen Malkmus was my favorite article of the week mostly because of all the talk Malkmus' fantasy teams. But yeah, Pavement, whooo, those Central Park shows are still just 6 months away. (via GQ)
