James Murphy is a restauranteur- in Williamsburg, BK, no less. Very easy to sneer at this one folks, for God’s sake, Williamsburg! And it’s a wine bar serving lardo. It’s called The Four Horsemen and you can read more about it at Gothamist. Now that you’ve thoroughly mulled over the irony and replay “Losing My Edge” in your head we can turn our attention to his second venture- this one more in line with Murphy and in theory could be kind of cool- He’s petitioning to replace all the beeps while going through the NYC subway system with musical notes.
