Living in New York City means I have no reason to ever order from or eat at a chain pizza establishment like Pizza Hut. I mean, if you’re going to Pizza Hut when there are at least five better, more authentic and just as affordable pizza joints within spitting distance, you’ve got problems. However, while their pizza tastes like bland sauce-covered cardboard, Pizza Hut’s pizza-ordering technology is on the cutting edge. According to Eater, Pizza Hut “has teamed up with software developer Chaotic Moon Studios to offer a concept video that imagines what on-table, touchscreen ordering might look like.” And you know what it looks like? FUN. The touchscreen stands in for the usual, disgruntled Pizza Hut waiter, and allowed you to customize your pie with various finger swipes and taps. I’m still totally uninterested in eating at Pizza Hut, but should they ever implement this technology into their restaurants, I would totally stop in to assemble a complicated order on the touchscreen — and cancel it when I’m done.

For the record, in this case, “That’s A Lot Of Look” means OH MY GOD BEST OUTFIT EVER. Beyonce and Jay Z may be eating vegan for the month, but that doesn’t mean she can’t wear her love for ooey-gooey cheese and pepperoni. I am in awe. Check out a few more shots after the jump.

Brooklyn does it best, and making my borough of residence proud (or, uh, something like that, I think) today is Scott Wiener, who was just crowned with the Guinness World Record for “Largest Collection of Pizza Boxes.” The competition must have been stiff for that title! Needless to say, Wiener is really, really passionate about pizza. I like to think that I am, too, but I have to hand it to him for taking his passion to what we like to call the Next Level. Wiener’s collection, which he began back in 2008, consists of some 595 different pizza boxes spanning 45 different countries. (He’s even written a book on the subject.) Keep reading »
