Mark Malkoff: The 171 Starbucks Diary

Mark Malkoff

We mentioned Mark Malkoff before–he’s the whackjob who hit all 171 Starbucks on the island of Manhattan in a single day.

But if you’d like to see the online equivalent of a behind-the-scenes making-of featurette sort of thing, then check out Radar Online. Here’s my favorite bit:

I have the majority of the Paul McCartney lyrics down. When a teenage barista at 33rd Street and 10th Avenue hands me my tall coffee, I ask what he thinks of the album. “Frankly, I don’t really like it. Plus I don’t know who that is.” I explain that Paul McCartney is a 25-year-old Asian-American singer who was runner-up two years ago on American Idol. “Yeah, I think I know who he is now,” he replies.

I want to give Malkoff a dollar just for pulling that little mindgrope off. Nice.
