A Letter to My Future Daughter

Hello my sweet baby girl,

You are still several years away from existing, but I am positive will exist someday. Maybe it boils down to my woman’s intuition, or to that psychic I consulted with this morning (for the first and last time, I might add. Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I think that if a psychic is charging you eleven bucks a pop, she has an obligation to tell you that week’s lottery tickets numbers.)

Regardless. I may not know you yet, even though you are technically apart of me, hanging out in my uterus waiting for the right dick to come along and shove you out (I fell [...]


Today I Will Go To Chipotle for Lunch

I will exit the building and walk down the street for a few blocks while listening to Metric's "Breathing Underwater" which is a song I heard months ago but only yesterday began loving and I will turn onto the street that houses the Chipotle and I will walk inside and meet my friend and wait in line and while in line I'll think about that commercial they released last tear with that Willie Nelson cover of that Coldplay song and wonder if maybe that ad is why I consider Chipotle to be a healthy option even though I'm stuffing my face with carbs and cheese and sodium and when I [...]


Better Chipotle Cups

"Starting Thursday, VF Daily can exclusively reveal, bags and cups in Chipotle’s stores will be adorned with original text by [Jonathan Safran] Foer, Malcolm Gladwell, Toni Morrison, George Saunders, and Vanity Fair contributing editor Michael Lewis… 'I selected the writers, and insofar as there was any editing, I did it,' Foer said. 'I tried to put together a somewhat eclectic group, in terms of styles. I wanted some that were essayistic, some fiction, some things that were funny, and somewhat thought provoking.'"

Some additional suggestions for Foer's consideration below.


Talking to Ghosts on Cell Phones

In our politically divided, socially stratified world, it is nice to know that 48% of Americans can agree on one thing: ghosts are everywhere. Floating around, seeing you when you’re sleeping, knowing when you’re awake, silently judging all the life choices you’ve made since college.

But sometimes, just knowing that they’re out there isn’t enough. What about the times when you want to reach out to ghosts, to find out what really killed them, or see if they have any good dating advice?

In the past, communicating with the beyond was a costly and time-intensive endeavor. If you opted to bypass the traditional séance route, you had to [...]


This Moving Animated Short Features a Fiona Apple Cover of "Pure Imagination," Is an Ad for Chipotle

The cognitive dissonance engendered by a near-billion-dollar company marketing itself in this manner is cancelled out and then some by Fiona's wonderful Willy Wonka cover. (And in other good cover news, here's the Arctic Monkeys doing Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home.") More related to this video: anyone have any good ethical eating ideas? I don't consider myself a very responsible consumer, but I love my Ann Arbor meat and vegetable CSAs.


Karen O, "Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys"

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' frontwoman covers Willie Nelson for Chipotle's Cultivate Foundation, an organization "dedicated to creating a sustainable, healthful, and equitable food future" (!), and the song acts as a soundtrack for "Abandoned," an unexpectedly touching (and Chipotle-commissioned) short film designed "to raise awareness about the economic hardship family farmers face in the increasingly industrialized American agriculture system."
