Anthony Bourdain Talks Harvey Weinstein, Clintons in Final Interview | Consequence of Sound
The late chef and author also took Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders fans to task
It’s been just over a month since the suicide of author, chef, and TV personality Anthony Bourdain. One of his final interviews, an in-depth discussion with Maria Bustillos of the newly-launched blockchain-based web magazine Popula, was conducted back in February and has just been published. The conversation covered a wide array of subjects, with Bourdain giving some characteristically blunt comments about many sociopolitical matters.
Prior to his death, Bourdain was dating Asia Argento, one of the women at the center of the New York Times article that exposed Harvey Weinstein. As such, Bourdain was an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement and a staunch opponent of Weinstein. While he and Bustillos were discussing how the only way to stop the immoral acts of powerful people is to publicly humiliate them, Bourdain imagined the former A-list producer forced to eat at a low-rent restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was his way of explaining that while he’d love “to see him, you know beaten to death in his cell,” it’s actually more satisfying to watch horrible individuals suffer the consequences.

eat well, travel often | shopmidnightrider: “Travel isn’t always pretty....
“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully you leave something good behind.” Anthony Bourdain ( June 25th 1956 - June 8th 2018 )

We Need to Talk About Anthony Bourdain | Food & Wine
As I see it, you either have to deal with the slightly uncomfortable situation of having your line cook cry in front of you, or you cry at their funeral. I'm sorry to make it sound that dire, but it is.
Chefs die all the time, and no one talks about it. There are a million reasons for this, but the thing is that it happens constantly and it's only spoken of in hushed tones so no one gets upset. Other people's feelings are awkward, and we as a culture are exceptionally crappy at talking about them. We're all afraid of making things worse, or seeing someone in a different way, or having them see us in a vulnerable state. But as I see it, you either have to deal with the slightly uncomfortable situation of having your line cook cry in front of you, or you cry at their funeral. I'm sorry to make it sound that dire, but it is. Especially today.
Anthony Bourdain killed himself. I don't know why. Even if I did, it wouldn't matter, because it cannot be undone or make anyone feel any better. There was absolutely no one else in the world like him, and the constant refrain I heard from chefs, writers, and food lovers I met through my work as a journalist was, "I want to be Anthony Bourdain."

Anthony Bourdain, Renegade Chef Who Reported From the World’s Tables, Is Dead at 61 - The New York Times
Anthony Bourdain, whose darkly funny memoir about life in New York City restaurant kitchens made him a celebrity chef and touched off his second career as a journalist, food expert and social activist, was found dead on Friday in his hotel room in France. He was 61.
His death was being treated as a suicide. Christian de Rocquigny du Fayel, the prosecutor for the city of Colmar, in the Alsace region near where Mr. Bourdain was found, said the death was by hanging. “At this stage, we have no reason to suspect foul play,” he said.

Anthony Bourdain: America’s Ambassador to the World | Editorials | Consequence of Sound
A tribute to a man who followed fate and became America's favorite traveler
Some men get a haircut in high school and just stick with it until the day they lose it all. It’s a metaphor for how the male of the species lives his life post-college: stuck in his ways, unable to change with the times, wondering out loud when things will go back to what they perceive as “normal.” Anthony Bourdain was a man that the world saw change and grow throughout the years, from his first New Yorker piece to his recent alignment with the #MeToo movement. Bourdain always kept it real, but his reality was perpetually changing.

Goodbye Anthony Bourdain – Om on Tech
It has been six days since I got back from Iceland. And every single day has been spent in bed – dealing with conjunctivitis, cold, cough and fever. Despite all precautions, all sort of vitamins and even getting decent sleep. And yet, it has been a rough few days. Even though I have tried to keep up with work — thanks to Zoom video conference, I have fallen behind on my emails.
And if that was not enough, I have been devastated by the news of the suicide of Kate Spade, a designer who works were appreciated by millions of women around the world. But today, my world got a little darker. Anthony Bourdain, a chef and a food journalist I admired deeply committed suicide in France. His show Parts Unknown was the only show worth watching on CNN. I loved his previous travel shows as well.

Barack Obama Just Delivered Emotional Statement About Anthony Bourdain – The Political Voice
Barack Obama, even out of office, remains the President this country deserves. And more importantly, he’s the leader that this nation needs – now, more than ever. With kindness and compassion, Barack Obama’s abundant intelligence, experience and wisdom was apparent in every move he made as leader of this country. To say he made us proud to be American, would be a massive understatement.
“Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer.” This is how I’ll remember Tony. He taught us about food — but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. We’ll miss him. pic.twitter.com/orEXIaEMZM

What Anthony Bourdain Understood About Cities - CityLab
The work of the acclaimed chef and writer, who has died at 61, provides a model for a truly inclusive urbanism based on the creativity of all human beings.
Anthony Bourdain is one of the two people who have most inspired my work on cities and urbanism. Where Jane Jacobs helped define my intellectual agenda, it was Bourdain, who died on Friday morning at age 61, who motivated me to spread the message of cities and urbanism broadly.
A brilliant chef-turned-writer-turned-TV-star who was as good or better on camera as he was on the page, most people saw him as a chronicler of food and culture. But I always saw him as a chronicler of cities, and a truly great urbanist. He may not have seen himself that way—in recent years he ceased to refer to himself as a chef or a journalist, so single-minded was he as a traveler and epicurean—but it’s a central part of his work and legacy.

Remembering Anthony Bourdain, Dead at 61 - The Atlantic
The chef and writer, who died at 61, changed the way we think about restaurant kitchens and the people who work within them.
What made Anthony Bourdain distinct as a writer was what made him a great television personality: He unprettified reality and found a deeper truth in the lives of people who made food. He did not so much glorify the hot line as much as talk about the grit it took to work and live there, the strangely insulated and relatively safe world it became for people who had often grown up in unsafe worlds, the barracks mentality that fostered its own language and code of behavior.

Anthony Bourdain modeled how to be an American abroad.
Anthony Bourdain modeled how to be an American abroad.
Anthony Bourdain very nearly ate his first meal in Japan at a Starbucks. As he recounts in Kitchen Confidential, the 2000 memoir that made him a celebrity, he had been dispatched in 1998 by the owners of Les Halles, the New York restaurant where he was executive chef, to open a Tokyo branch. Hungover and bleary-eyed at 5 a.m., the man who would one day preach the gospel of culinary adventurism—but at the time had almost no experience with international travel—“didn’t have the nerve” to go into a noodle shop, being “acutely aware of how freakish and un-Japanese I looked.” He writes, “The prospect of pushing aside the banner to one of these places, sliding back the door and stepping inside, then squeezing on to a stool at a packed counter and trying to figure out how and what to order was a little frightening.” Thankfully for him—and the rest of us—fortified by a latte, he summoned the nerve to go out and slurp down some soba.

Anthony Bourdain Dies By Suicide: His Best Music Moments - Stereogum
This morning brings the impossibly sad news that Anthony Bourdain, the near-universally beloved celebrity chef and TV host, has died. CNN reports that Bourdain died via suicide in France, where he was filming an episode of his show Parts Unknown. His friend Eric Ripert, a French chef, found him unresponsive in his hotel room this morning. Bourdain was 61.
Bourdain was born in New York and grew up in New Jersey. After dropping out of Vassar, he became a chef, coming up in New York’s restaurant scene. Bourdain became famous after he turned his 1999 New Yorker article “Don’t Eat Before Reading This” into the bestselling 2000 memoir Kitchen Confidential: Adventures In The Culinary Underbelly. From there, Bourdain hosted the TV shows A Cook’s Tour, No Reservations, and Parts Unknown, venturing around the world to speak with locals and to try the different kids of food, always doing whatever he could to show local cultures on entirely human terms.

Can you commit manslaughter by sending texts? We’re about to find out | Ars Technica
"All you have to do is turn on the generator and you will be free and happy."
An involuntary manslaughter trial began Tuesday for a Massachusetts woman who as a teen texted her boyfriend and urged him to commit suicide.
The woman, Michelle Carter, faces a maximum 20-year prison term if convicted at a bench trial in Bristol County. Attorneys for Carter, who was 18 at the time of the texts, had tried to fend off the charges, saying her texts to 17-year-old Conrad Roy were protected speech under the First Amendment. The state's top court, the Supreme Judicial Court, set no line in the sand on when speech loses its constitutional protection. Instead, the court upheld the indictment for involuntary manslaughter on "the basis of words alone."

Lefsetz Letter » Blog Archive » 13 Reasons Why
The buzz comes AFTER!
We were searching the Netflix/Amazon files for something to watch. Primarily new, one of their series, something we could sink our teeth into while we await “House of Cards” and “Bloodline.”
Not that I used to employ Netflix this way. I used to assume everything was on there, now that’s not the case, now it’s HBO with a whole hell of a lot more product all available instantly, but we’ll get to that feature later.
And after dissecting the offerings, I take my watching time seriously, we delved into “Dear White People,” which was a mistake, not because of the subject matter, that intrigued me, but because it instantly became soap opera sophomoric with modern details thrown in. I mean I’m better off watching “Atlanta,” which I’ve never seen, but is now unavailable. What’s with these filmed entertainment people, haven’t they learned any lessons from music? I’m paying for all these services already, I’m certainly not gonna buy it.
So we dug into “13 Reasons Why.”

‘13 Reasons Why’ Is a Huge Success, and an Even Bigger Source of Controversy
In the face of protests from parents and medical groups, the Netflix series just got renewed for a second season
Because it airs on the notoriously opaque Netflix, we’ll likely never know how many people actually watched 13 Reasons Why, the unflinching high school drama enumerating the events that led bright, sensitive high school student Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) to take her own life. But by every qualitative standard, 13 Reasons is a smash. In a sort of reverse baton passing, the cast presented an award at this weekend’s MTV Movie & TV Awards to the Stranger Things ensemble. More than a month after its premiere, the show is still very much in the cultural conversation. And in the ultimate act of validation for a piece of teen-targeted pop culture, the show also gave rise to a vindictive meme. The show was just renewed for a second season on the back of those successes.
