Comment on chocolate puddle cakes by Christina

Valentine’s Day disappointment :( I made the batter and left at 60-degree counter for about an hour before baking. Baked 11 minutes and still wound up with a plate of hot fudge. I used 3 ounces 72% Askinosie chocolate and 1 tablespoon sugar.

How Has Playlist Culture Affected Our Listening Choices? An Experiment

In an age where playlist culture reigns supreme in our consumption of music, one curious music blogger from NYC took some time to investigate  what today's music consumers are listening to, on what platform, and most of all how they're discovering it.   ___________________________ Guest post by Noor Kalouti of Soundfly's Flypaper Have you ever really considered how you find the music you cherish so deeply? Music surrounds us wherever we go, throughout our day. But where do we go ...

You got me at the title = plush coconut cake sounds almost too good to eat. I’ll certainly be giving this one a try.

Blue stairs...

When I was in the area, visiting the « Cité Fleurie », see preceding post, I actually wanted to visit another little artist’s haven. Again, I had to wait until a kind person let me in. This place, much smaller, is referred to as the “Cité Verte” and if it still exists some 120 years after its creation, surrounded by modern apartment buildings, it’s thanks to the same artist who saved the “Cité Fleurie”, his name was Henri Cadiou… and once again the intervention by a French President, this ...

Ariana Grande Now Has ‘Small BBQ Grill’ Tattooed On Her Hand Forever

HAHA, YIKES Okay, here we are in the year 2019, and let me ask you this: do we see people wearing puka shell necklaces? Ridiculously low-rise jeans? No? Hm. It’s almost like.... we’re in the year 2019 and not 2004. So naturally, you’d assume white people would stop getting Chinese or Japanese calligraphy tattoos with wildly off translations. “It means ‘wisdom’ in Japanese” No, Christina, you dumb idiot, it means ‘spicy tuna roll’. But no, apparently we haven’t moved past that as a ...

Comment on baked buffalo wings by Christina

I’m so glad you asked this question, I’d love to know the answer too! My husband may leave me for saying so, but I honestly don’t have the patience for wings – they’re so messy and cumbersome to eat. Far too much effort for the small amount of meat on the bones. Plus I always think dark meat tastes greasy, no matter how it is cooked. But the hot sauce and blue cheese combo is a winner and I’d love to put it on something else!

Eerie Futuristic Digital Art by Cristian Chierici

Eerie Futuristic Digital Art by Cristian Chierici abduzeedoJan 22, 2019 I love mixing photography and Photoshop to create incredible light effects. If you follow the blog since the beginning you probably already know that. I love that eerie feeling you can create by imagining a supernatural reality and there are many digital artists pushing the limit. The cool thing is that they go beyond just Photoshop and really take advantage of 3D to translate ideas into ...

Criterion Film Offerings: French Noir, Japanese Lovers, American Gangsters and Frames of Pure Serenity

The Criterion Collection, the busiest and most prestigious of companies devoted to classic films, provides a rare delight in this collection of films now available on Blu-ray. These are movies that have never before been on DVD or Blu-ray (at least not in Region 1), and in some cases weren't even on VHS. These tantalizing titles, long heard of but vexingly unavailable until now, are a particular pleasure to for film lovers to enjoy, at last. Panique (dir. Julien Duvivier, 1946) The aloof and mi...

The Best Work I Saw at the Medium Festival of Photography: Part 1

  My kids are 6 and 11. Right in that sweet spot where all the older people you meet say, “Cherish this time. It goes by so quickly.” Seriously. I’ve heard that a lot. My wife and I are trying to appreciate it, but as my son told me the other day, (with respect to the natural beauty that surrounds him in Taos,) it’s hard not to take it for granted. One thing I’ve discovered, one trick to make it last, is to try to make more memories. To do it on purpose. As a photographer, I’ll be honest, I don’...

Bizarre pre-dawn experience...

After writing the last post, about a WaPo column by Alyssa Rosenberg, I clicked on my "Alyssa Rosenberg" tag. It only had 2 other posts. One, from a year ago, was to another WaPo column ("Hillary Clinton and I are done"), but the other was from 2009, about whether long novels are still worth reading. It was a clip from a Bloggingheads diavlog, Rosenberg with Matt Yglesias, and I needed to fix some code, so I clicked through to the Bloggingheads website. I saw that there was a new diavlog with Bo...

Ryanair passengers bus to Greece

When you’ve just landed after a long-haul flight, the last thing you want is to board a bus for another leg of travel. Imagine how the passengers of this Ryanair flight felt when their plane from London, bound for Greece, landed in Romania instead and were told to catch a bus the rest of the way to Greece. The plane was supposed to arrive in Thessaloniki, Greece, by 10:00 PM, but fog at the airport caused a diversion. Normally the plane would land in Skopje, the nearby Macedonian capital, but...

Christina El Moussa and Ant Anstead marry in surprise Newport Beach wedding

Christina El Moussa and Ant Anstead are ringing in the New Year with wedding rings. Dozens of guests thought they would be gathering at El Moussa’s home to head for the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade on Sunday, Dec. 23. Instead, they arrived at the surprise wedding of El Moussa, 35, star of HGTV’s home rehab show “Flip or Flop,” and Anstead, 39, host of the British car show “Wheeler Dealers.” Vows were exchanged under an altar in the front yard of the $4.1 million, gated, 5,000-square foot ...

Evangeline’s Story and Christmas: Expect the Unexpected

Nothing about our third child, Evangeline, has been ordinary. In 2015 Julie and I thought we were done having children. We had a boy in 2003 and a girl in 2006 and our three-bedroom home was just the right size to fit the four of us, our crazy Goldendoodle and all of our stuff. But God had other plans for us, and an openness to life is always and openness to surprises. In January that year, the day after the March for Life concluded, my wife told me she was pregnant. We were both happy, but we h...

True magic of Christmas is no mystery to families adopting Secret Santas tradition of anonymous giving

Finley Smallwood is eager to get the first batch of snickerdoodle cookies baking in the oven. “I want to push the button,” she tells her mom. These aren’t just any ordinary cookies. They are destined to be left anonymously at the homes of neighbors in their Eastvale housing tract as Finley, 5, and her parents, Josh and Christina Smallwood, once again pick up on the joy of charitable giving as secret Santas. But they won’t be just any ordinary secret Santas. The Smallwoods are part of the #Secret...

The Complete (& NSFW) Guide To Getting A Genital Piercing

The genital area is by far the most polarizing place to get pierced. According to the pros, it's just as easy as piercing your nipples, or your belly button, or even your ears, but it's one that's shrouded in a whole lot more mystery. Even the mere mention might make you shudder with fear — or pique your interest. Hell, maybe you even have one. But regardless of your initial position, you're probably at least a little curious.Piercing your vagina (to be clear, the most accurate term is 'vulva,'...

Comment on sunken black forest cake by Christina

Yorgos Lanthimos 101: Exploring the Brilliant, Deranged Work of the Director of ‘The Favourite’

Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos is not the most accessible filmmaker for your average audience. To begin, his characters don’t behave as if they are bound to the same cultural norms that we are. Conversations that would be utterly taboo in our society are discussed with abandon, like Steven (Colin Farrell) in The Killing of a Sacred Deer casually telling a colleague that his daughter has started her period. Lanthimos’ worlds run parallel to our own, but they offer a unique and sometimes distur...

This Week in Photography Books: Christina Riley

  Blame Canada. That just popped into my head, just this second. I was shaking off a first draft that I didn’t particularly like, (all the me, me, me,) and it hit me. Blame Canada. Such a funny musical number, in an audacious movie, which presents Saddam Hussein as Satan’s torturous gay lover. I haven’t watched “South Park” in years, truth be told, but I did drive through Trey and Matt’s hometown in Colorado this autumn. It’s a shockingly beautiful and definitely strange place, and is cut off fr...
