Why did you go to McDonald's?

Kicking it with @donwas, making great music and living the parking lot life. #earthroamer vs airstream #groooooovy

“Sunday night groove... with @milkmansound Pedal Steel amp and loop pedal. Sometimes I play the same idea for a half an hour just to get…”

Gigantic Light Beams in the Netherlands Mimic the Aurora Borealis

The artist who brought us the swirling, Van Gogh-themed lighted path is back with another dazzling creation that illuminates the night. Daan Roosegaarde recently created a light installation that mimics the aurora borealis. The galactic beams of Waterlicht crisscross dramatically in the skies above …

Google's future campuses are as flexible as its technology

Hey, Apple and NVIDIA: you aren't going to be the only Silicon Valley giants with outlandish office space. Google has revealed a proposed redesign of its Mountain View campuses (specifically, four sites) that not only doesn't resemble a traditional workplace, but mirrors the company's open, …

Banksy's Murals Turn Up In Gaza Strip

Banksy's work is now in the Gaza Strip.

The artist, who uses public spaces for his often-provocative murals, posted images that he said were of art he created in the Gaza Strip, along with a two-minute video of life in the Palestinian territory, titled "Make this the year YOU discover a new …

Last December whilst deeply enjoying a single-serve packet of their maple almond butter, I posted a tweet suggesting that Justin's (@justins) make a cookie dough variant. Realizing the zen-like (aka stoner) genius of this idea, @justins created a single, hand-made batch of nirvana on a spoon: chocolate almond butter with chocolate chips and real chunks of cookie dough. Thanks Justin. You've ruined me for all other of life's awaiting pleasures.

Wearing my CONTINUUM fleece jacket tonight. Many people believe this to be my best jacket and say I haven't made a jacket as good ever since. "I like your earlier jackets," they say. But the next jacket... it's gonna be bulletproof.

The JM x CHANEL watch box project... Check it out at hodinkee.com #chanel #hodinkee #watches

The very talented @vailafadojohn created this beautiful panel to promote tonight's #JMLATELATESHOW with musical guest Ed Sheeran.

The hand-drawn Grateful Dead ticket request envelope I hand delivered to Bob Weir before we played Truckin' and Althea on #JMLATELATESHOW tonight. What a memorable night.

What can you expect from #JMLATELATESHOW tonight? An insightful sit-down with the Super Bowl Halftime Sharks and a marine biologist. Andy Cohen, Alison Becker and musical guest John Legend join me tonight on CBS!

Showing some unsolicited #martinpride since two of my favorite @martinguitar acoustics happen to be in the same room together. On the right is the uber-limited 00-45SC "Stagecoach" model, but on the left is a guitar that's still available, and a sleeper hit in the Martin lineup... It's called the "Mini" or "Terz" guitar, and it's the only miniature acoustic I know of that is built with the same integrity as a full size model. I bring it with me on trips that don't allow for larger guitars, and it's what I call a "pocket song calculator." I can lay in bed and write/brush up on a song without having to travel with a larger dreadnought model. It's the brainchild of my longtime friend Dick Boak and I'm glad I opened its case again. I'd forgotten how great a guitar it is.

Morning selfie! I'm so excited to be hosting The Late Late Show tomorrow night that I've been sleeping this way for the past week. It's actually been helpful because by being dressed for the job in my dreams, I've been able to interview some pretty interesting guests. Last night I spoke to 'guy who was you but didn't have your face, it was so weird," "my ex girlfriend who drove an 18-wheeler for some reason and was surprisingly really nice to me" and zookeeper Jack Hanna. #JMLATELATESHOW

Designed this tonight... File under "can't be unseen." What do you say, @officialjacksonguitars?

This typewriter costed me $35 at an antique store in Palm Springs. I knew when I first saw it that it had a lot of unwritten stories in it, but I didn't know it had *these* stories in it. One story I typed was about a cop and his partner who made a gruesome discovery in an alley...about themselves. Another story this dastardly machine spit out was about a baseball player in the 1970s who used right field as a helipad for pure evil. I am selling this typewriter for $45 FIRM.

If you love birdwatching and thought you'd have to wait a while to see something you loved, then tonight's your lucky night, because this is a quintessential book on birds written by Ted Floyd, a leader in his field. For any of you who aren't familiar with bird watching, ("birding") it's a really fun pursuit that is basically all about the science (and art) of identification. Since birds have no pockets to hold IDs, and state and federal laws do not require them to do so, we have no choice but to use our own powers of observation and deduction.
