Each week our editors gather their favorite finds from around the internet and recommend them to you right here. These are not articles about watches, but rather outstanding examples of journalism and storytelling covering topics from fashion and art to technology and travel. So go ahead, pour yourself a cup of coffee, put your feet up, and settle in.
Okay, there might not be a whole lot to this story as a story, but starting with the line “Hope you like concrete because there’s a lot of it” is like coming out of the gate saying, “We wrote this just for Stephen.” The house in question here is almost better described as a monumental pieces of art from Pritzker Prize-winning architect Alejandro Aravena, who is better known for his incredible work in affordable housing. This is a little more luxurious and conceptual though, and the photographs will have you ready to move to the Chilean coast in no time.

The Good Place is a show that only gets better as you watch it the second or third time through. The characters are super complex and the 21 minute and 30 second runtime is so dense with Easter eggs, plot twists and Kierkegaard references that it’s easy to miss things the first time. This article delves into the show’s “absurdly high concept,” its ridiculously talented cast, including but not limited to Ted Danson and Kirsten Bell, and the show’s creator, Mike Schur (SNL, The Office, Parks and Recreation). Give the show a shot and see why folks who work on the show call it “the smartest, dumbest show on TV.”

This past week, dramatic temperature drops across the North left those living in cooler climes with only once conclusion: Fall has arrived. To get into the seasonal spirit, here is a fun collection of autumnal images brought to us by The Atlantic. Think harvests, festivals, animal migrations, winter preparations, and, of course, spectacular foliage. Go grab a cup of your preferred seasonally-appropriate hot beverage (for me, spiced hot apple cider) and enjoy these snapshots of Fall.

If you know me, you know I love pizza. I have tried my best to steer clear (they say it’s not good for you… this is tbd) but much to my chagrin I cannot (I had a whole pizza last night, for example). So when I heard that there was a Museum of Pizza opening in Brooklyn, my interest was piqued – but not that piqued, because I don’t love crowds. Here is a funny video of NYC-based food critic Adam Platt and his post-millennial daughter visiting the Museum of Pizza. Needless to say, I won’t be going there but I certainly will be going back to Paulie Gee’s very soon.
