We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: Mario Batali shows off his fancy home kitchen, Bruce Springsteen rewards early arrivals in Los Angeles, and how 1 WTC got so big.
Here's a tour of Mario Batali's home kitchen, courtesy of enthusiastic orange-clogged tour guide Mario Batali. It's fascinating, the same way a writer giving a tour of his study is fascinating, and features a compelling argument as to why you absolutely need to equip your kitchen with two stoves -- one for baking and one for heating things up.

90 minutes before the scheduled start of his Friday night concert at the Staples Center, Bruce Springsteen moseyed out on the stage and performed "For You" solo and acoustic. The performance was terrific and unexpected, particularly because Los Angeles event attendees are notorious for arriving late to just about everything. This is what they miss out on. [via Stian257]
