Kimono reflections in a crumbling section of Tokyo’s subway system

This fantastically old and crumbling section of Tokyo’s subway system is a firm favourite of mine. It’s patched up beyond belief, there’s piping all over the place, and even if you don’t see them, you can hear rats running around behind the wall panels. Oh, and there’s that bit of protruding rock in the background too. A wonderfully unintended feature that was a key part of another kimono photo I took back in 2018. It’s here if you’d like to see it. Opting to try and incorporate the mirror rathe...

"'Vibe' as slang, referring to an aura or feeling, emerged in the sixties, in California, and gave the word its enduring hippie associations."

"The underground paper Berkeley Barb made frequent use of it as early as 1965. The following year, the Beach Boys hit 'Good Vibrations' exposed the slang to broader audiences....

Why Molly Baz just might be the Abbie Hoffman of the culinary world

It seems fitting that the title smacks of Abbie Hoffman’s “Steal This Book” because super cheeky “Cook This Book” by Molly Baz is, at times, downright rebellious. The unconventional format. The slangy lingo. The well placed cuss words. A bold “let’s have fun in the kitchen” vibe became the Baz signature on Instagram — she has more than 630,000 followers — and at Bon Appétit magazine where she was a test kitchen star. (She quit in solidarity with colleagues when it was revealed that not all video...

"You've run out of free articles. Try your first month of Slate Plus for just $1..."

Uh, no. I will not do that. Ironically, the article I would have kept reading is "How Berries Became the Juiciest Battle of Kid-Food Instagram/Fun to eat, but paying for them … not so much." This is about parents complaining — or faux-complaining (with cute pictures) — about all the berries their children will eat. Like a whole $4 box in one sitting. I don't know where this story goes, but I'd tell these Instagram ladies to stop giving a little kid the whole box. And stop with the humblebragging...
