My entire apartment could fit inside Rachel Ray's 'tiny' kitchen.

Rachael Ray lives here?!?! Jesus F Christ. That's it. I'm officially going to stop telling people that I live here.

And how the hell does Jesse Malin keep getting to make records? He has to be independently wealthy. Has to be.

Rachel Ray has terrible taste in EVERYTHING. Christ? Did you see that "art" above the sofa? Wow. They say money can buy everything, but not in this case. 500+ endorsements? That's just gross. They should name a landfill after her.

For all you Jesse Malin fans. This was a gift his close friends did for him some 13 years ago. Great local footage. It was in honor of him hosting Thanksgiving for lonely friends for years similar to Woody Allen in the movie Danny Rose.

I remember when you could keep garbage cans on the curb on St. Marks Place... this street has become an open air strip mall

Quite the portfolio of bars he has.

The new Jesse Malin bar Berlin is complete bullshit. The door guy is a complete prick. They don't actually let people in from "back in the day" even if you went to the green room, were a musician and an artist in the 90s! Nothing he says is true.
