Me too! Máté emailed me earlier in the day if I had more, so I checked my archives and it turns out this is the only picture I took of the car. What I remember is that it was displayed at the 2011 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este as part of a collection of art Minis. You’ll have to make do with my crotch. Very glam Read more

It’s in Pest, right next to St. Stephen’s Basilica, but we’re about to move to a new building on Andrássy út.

My brother lives six miles from this volcano, in Kagoshima. Sakurajima erupts pretty much every day. It’s not a lightning-spiked lavafest each time but even so it’s quite a sight to walk down a lazy, tree-lined subtropical street and see a giant plume of volcanic ash on the horizon in the blink of an eye.

The local med school (the one I graduated from) is one of the better universities in Hungary and has a long history of working with exchange students. It’s one of the cheapest non-Third-World cities to live in if you have real money, like dollars or euros. Like, you can rent an apartment for $200 a month and have Read more

Beats me! This is what they look like on the inside. Pictures of middle-age women and some sort of “Etiquette”.

Come early in the day, nothing turns well-paid office workers into a feeding frenzy like free office meals.

Judging by the planeloads of Brits who arrive each weekend, I think he’d be okay. His pounds would go a long way here too, the local money is worth shit these days.

Like Budapest? Everyone likes Budapest. We're getting a new office there.

I may not be able to offer you more money, either, given that Nick Denton's interest in cars lies somewhere below his interest in fully clothed athletes. Our benefits are great (free healthcare, gym reimbursement, free lunch on Wednesdays if you're in New York), but our salary is roughly on par with other web Read more

Yeah, I remember that, it ended up in Syria driven by ISIS guys.

It’s ridiculous, I know. I looked up this article for Máté’s SL600 post and we both laughed out loud. I vaguely recall Jalopnik having really weird image rules back when I wrote this and layed it out, and rotating the photo sideways was the only way I could fit all the images in the post. I’m not changing it now, Read more

I wrote a long article mostly inspired by Interstellar for io9’s sister site Cink but I’m not going to link to it because it’s in Hungarian and who reads Hungarian, right? On the other hand, I made this very artisanal gif with Crayola and watercolor pencils.

In March 2011, I had a chat with Ray Wert—then Jalopnik’s editor-in-chief—about hiring people for the site. It went like this: Read more

If you want more Asmara, here’s a post I wrote for io9’s sister site Jalopnik about the old photos of an American serviceman stationed in Eritrea in the late 1940s:
