Fly On The Wall 

Two Stoners, a graphic artist, and Justin Timberlake

Getting High

Michael and Spencer Stoner have started a "soft wash" service (whatever that is) and given it the best name in the history of Stoner-owned soft-wash services: "Two Stoners on a Roof." These signs depicting said Stoners and what appears to be a giant truck-shaped hookah, can be seen on Walnut Grove and list a variety of Stoner-certified soft-wash options. Although there's no mention of rates, we kind of hope these guys charge time-and-a-half after 4:20.

Cool Things

With fewer and fewer employment opportunities for political cartoonists, lots of eyes are on Matt Bors, a 29-year-old artist who is determined to redefine the field. So what's next for the 2012 Pulitzer finalist and pioneer of graphic nonfiction war coverage? In a recent interview with Time magazine, Bors said he would be covering the lengthy protest of Jacqueline Smith, the last resident of Memphis' Lorraine Motel, who was evicted prior to the site's transformation into the National Civil Rights Museum.

Verbatim

Singer/actor/comedian Justin Timberlake is the cover boy for GQ's annual "Man of the Year" issue. In his interview with the fashion magazine, Timberlake criticized his hometown and in the same breath demonstrated why he couldn't be from anywhere else: "It's a struggling city with a defeatist attitude. I'm from this town, and I grew up with a little bit of a chip on my shoulder, so sometimes I find it funny that I've been able to acquire the patience it takes to be kind to people in our business. Because sometimes I just want to [expletive] kill everybody."
