Cheeseburger In Paradise Soup

Oh, my stars, this was sooo good! There’s only 2 things that would’ve made it better. If I was eating it in a Tropical oasis and Jimmy Buffet was singing Margaretville. Ok, maybe a Margarita itself would make it even better too. [Author: Andrea N.]

Translators on the Art of Translation.

To celebrate the National Book Award for Translated Literature, Emily Temple at Literary Hub quotes ten translators on how they translate; the most high-flown and most annoying is Nabokov (from his 1941 essay “The Art of Translation”): Three grades of evil can be discerned in the queer world of verbal transmigration. The first, and lesser one, comprises obvious errors due to ignorance or misguided knowledge. This is mere human frailty and thus excusable. The next step to Hell is taken by the tra...

Nevada as you've never seen it

Nevada as you’ve never seen it Lake Tahoe. Photo: Shutterstock/Topseller N evada covers a hefty 110,000 square miles — you could fit three Indianas in there, or 11 Marylands. And while it’s simpler on the imagination to picture this vast landscape as all ghost towns and desert, you’d be missing a whole hell of a lot: the alpine lakes, the snow-capped mountain ranges, the singing sand dunes, the art enclaves, the surreal rock formations, the lush river ...

In ‘First We Surf Then We Eat’ cookbook, recipes for adventurous eating from the world’s best surf spots

It’s a book longtime surfer Jim Kempton has unconsciously been writing his whole life. He started traveling the world to search for the best surf decades ago, documenting his adventures in the ’70s when exploration for waves was raw and new, and long before social media and forecasters easily pointed surfers to the best swells. Jim Kempton, former editor/publisher of Surfer Magazine, just published a book called “First We Surf Then We Eat.” (File photo Orange County Register/SCNG) Along the...

An Asbestos-Bound, Fireproof Edition of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 (1953)

Even by the extreme standards of dystopian fiction, the premise of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 can seem a little absurd. Firemen whose job is to set fires? A society that bans all books? Written less than a decade after the fall of the Third Reich, which announced its evil intentions with book burnings, the novel explicitly evokes the kind of totalitarianism that seeks to destroy culture—and whole peoples—with fire. But not even the Nazis banned all books. Not a few academics and writers surv...

A bear got into a backyard hot tub and drank a guy's margarita

Not all heroes wear capes, people. Take this bear, for instance. Mark Hough of Altadena, California first spotted the bear climbing over his fence. He then witnessed the critter slipping into his (unheated) hot tub for a cool soak. Wait, it gets better. Then the bear knocked over and lapped up the margarita Hough had left by the edge of the tub. Later, the bear was found napping in a nearby tree. NBC San Diego: After first spotting the bear, Hough retreated inside, only to later find the fu...

Strawberry Margaritas

The seasons seem to start a little earlier in France than elsewhere, or maybe that’s just me. I tend to want to jump the gun as soon as I see strawberries or cherries at the market every spring. But I know that if I wait a few weeks, they’ll be a lot more abundant, and a lot better. Not to mention less-expensive, too. Once they go from “rarity” to available everywhere, I tend to go nuts, buying as much fruit as I can. I often joke that as a Californian, I am genetically-wired to eat fruit all ...

Patti Smith’s 40 Favorite Books

Image of Patti Smith performing in Rio de Janeiro by Daigo Oliva As a little girl, Patti Smith found liberation in words -- first through the bedtime prayers she made up herself, and later in books. "I was completely smitten by the book," she writes in her memoir, Just Kids.  "I longed to read them all, and the things I read of produced new yearnings." Smith found a role model in Jo, the tomboy writer in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. "She gave me the courage of a new goal," writes Smith, "...

Farnesiana Caron: Like Little Suns

A Brief History of Making Deals with the Devil: Niccolò Paganini, Robert Johnson, Jimmy Page & More

When the term “witch hunt” gets thrown around in cases of powerful men accused of harassment and abuse, historians everywhere bang their heads against their desks. The history of persecuting witches—as every schoolboy and girl knows from the famous Salem Trials—involves accusations moving decidedly in the other direction. But we’re very familiar with men supposedly selling out to Satan, dealing—or just dueling—with the devil. They weren’t called witches for doing so, or burned at the sta...

Cranberry Margarita #Recipe

One of the cocktails I enjoy is the margarita. A classic margarita is made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice, and is often served with salt on the rim of the glass. The drink is served on the rocks (shaken with ice), frozen (blended with ice), or straight up (no ice). Many folks tend to think of the margarita as a warm weather drink. In actuality, the popular cocktail is suitable for serving at any time of the year. Generally I prefer fruited variations, with strawberry being my favorite....

The Popdose Interview: Elephant Rifle

Let me call it early: anybody who’s anybody who considers themselves a devotee of punk rock will consider Hunk, the recently announced third full-length from Reno quartet Elephant Rifle, to be one of the most anticipated records of 2018. That’s on the record, Skippy. While Party Child, the group’s debut, was great, the band really came into its own on 2015’s Ivory, which was epic and scorched Earth. Since I heard the record’s opener, “Bone Voyage,” a track that burns itself into punks’ memories ...
