Jim Drain Wallpaper + Kurt Cobain Turns 44 in Today's Eight Items or Less
1. Love this Jim Drain wallpaper for sale on Exhibition A right now. They also have a really sweet print by Steve Powers called "You and Me" for sale that we would have loved to have in our bedrooms as little kids. Or even now.
2. Geoffrey Rush's office in The King's Speech? Also the setting for a gay porn called UK Naked Men. Yep. [Queerclick] (NSFW!)
3. Joaquin Baca's fabulous southern-inspired restaurant Brooklyn Star is finally, finally re-opening next week in a spot on Lorimer. It's original location, closer to the Bedford L stop, was destroyed in a fire last February. We will definitely be drinking their Kool-Aid. [EaterNY]
4. Nearly all of the PAPER editorial staff is pretty sold on the new Adele album, 21, especially the wrenching ballad "Someone Like You." (No, Adele, don't show up at his house un-invited! He's married now! Ughhh.) She's just added another NYC date to her U.S. tour and will be playing the United Palace on May 21st. Tickets go on sale 2/26. [BrooklynVegan]
5. The box which Maru cannot enter. [Buzzfeed]
6. In honor of what would have been Kurt Cobain's 44th birthday today (we'll let you digest that for a second...), here's 44 things you didn't know about him. Well-played, Flavorwire.
