As I was walking to school Friday morning Mario Batali zipped by me on his Vespa with a person dressed in blue riding on the back. I see Mario all time, so I don't even count him as a sighting anymore . . . but this morning I was reading Stereogum and discovered that the "person in blue" riding along on the Vespa was REM frontman Michael Stipe. Apparently Mr. Batali is interviewing Mr. Stipe for a new Sundance Channel TV series.
So, I don't know, that's a slightly neat thing to see in the morning, right?
Here is the Stereogum post that filled me in.
Come on, you know I'll post about almost anything.
