So this has been going on for a while now. NY Daily News interviewed one of the co-op’s 14,000 members about this Gosling Tumblr blog:

Casey Horvitz, 26, a Park Slope resident and Food Coop member, says that if Gosling did decide to join the Coop, which requires that its members work regular shifts, he wouldn’t have any red carpet rolled out for him.

“He might have to be on a waiting list to go to an orientation … And he’d have to sign up for a shift.”

A Gosling fan herself, Horovitz said she can see Gosling fitting right in at the Coop, stocking fair-trade coffee and free-range poultry with the best of them.

“He’s cute, and I’d like to think he’s the kind of guy who would shop at the Coop,” Horovitz said.

Love this tumblr too: “Hey girl. Doesn’t this organic, local, non-GMO, granola always taste sweeter when it’s bought with cooperation?”

Reggae Rapper Matisyahu Shaved Beard

The man who brought us reggae/rap with an Orthodox Judaism message has shaved his signature beard. Matisyahu was known as much for his traditional beard as his hit songs like “King Without a Crown.” On Tuesday Matisyahu tweeted “No more Chassidic reggae superstar.” Matisyahu’s name at birth was Matthew Paul Miller. He changed his name at 19 after converting. “Sorry Folks, all you get is me … no alias.”

Many of Matisyahu’s longtime fans were confused over his faith after shaving his beard. Fans commented on Matisyahu’s Web site, “As a huge fan of your music and your personal voyage, I’m pretty confused right now.” The singer replied with a Tweet that said, “For all of those who are being awesome, you are awesome. For all those who are confused: today I went to the Mikva and Shul just like yesterday”
