The Books That Samuel Beckett Read and Really Liked (1941-1956)

Samuel Beckett, Pic, 1" by Roger Pic. Via Wikimedia Commons Clad in a black turtleneck and with a shock of white hair, Samuel Beckett was a gaunt, gloomy high priest of modernism. After the 1955 premiere of Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot (watch him stage a performance here), Kenneth Tynan quipped, ''It has no plot, no climax, no denouement; no beginning, no middle and no end.'' From there, Beckett’s work only got more austere, bleak and despairing. His 1969 play Breath, for instance,...

Comment on my favorite brownies by Suzanne

Recipe was a huge hit. I used 85% dark chocolate, and it was plenty chocolatey. My 8×8 plan was occupied, so I used my round cake pan, and it worked fine. Also, as always, Deb, I’m grateful that you include weights in your recipes. It makes things go faster and ensures perfect results every time!

Hitchhiking the Scottish Highlands

No, really, I’m good at this,” I tell my husband Tom, pushing in front of him to stick out my thumb. The cars rush past on the busy A82, a narrow highway winding through the Scottish Highlands. We are on day six of our 95-mile West Highland Way hike, and we have just walked from Kinlochleven to the Glencoe Valley in the rain. The inn I booked is in the Glencoe Village, about 10 miles down the road. As we hike down the misty path, the bus pulls away, and there won’t be another for hours. Hitch...

Conspicuous Consumption

I was raised as a careful Yankee — my father’s people were from small town and rural New England.  I turn off the lights as I leave a room; take 3 minute, economical showers; and start my garden plants from seed. Yet I inherited very different impulses from my mother’s side of the family.  In particular, I spent a lot of my boyhood relishing the flamboyance of my maternal grandfather, a Western mining engineer who drove a sparkly gold Cadillac the size of a spaceship, loved any excuse for giving...

catching up with photos...

well, it has been a wee while, so i figured the best way to catch this space up with what i've been up to to is through pictures from the past few weeks... we've been going out to breakfast every saturday to chat about how much we love omelets, our week's goals and what we're going to eat for lunch. plus, the food motivates us to detach our faces from our pillows early on rainy weekends. we saw this actual "advertising" display in the window of a photography studio in the mall....um. i becam...

Comment on chicken and dumplings by Suzanne

I just bought the new “Everyday Cookbook”. I am wondering how to make the dumplings (Siberian Pelmeni) vegetarian… is there a way to replace the meat filling with a cheese or potato filling? I came here to look for ideas and thought it might help to just ask :)

6WH: Week 2 - Linnea Quigley

During last year's Six Weeks of Halloween, I spent a couple of weeks covering what I had termed "Obscure Scream Queens", including Erika Blanc and Isabelle Adjani. This weekend, we return to this sort of theme with a trio of films starring 80s B-movie star Linnea Quigley. Literally off the bus from Iowa, she hit Los Angeles in the late 70s and began picking up small roles in B movies, eventually graduating (pun intended!) to a bigger role in the 1981 Troma slasher Graduation Day. She followed th...

Will Someone Please Tell Me Exactly What a Looking Glass Can Do?

A few weeks ago I wrote about the launch of the Looking Glass, a desktop holographic display made for 3D creators. Since then, over a thousand people have purchased a Looking Glass for their desks. I think part of the reason for this attention is that the Looking Glass is filling a much-needed hole in the REPL for Hardware flow alongside additive and subtractive desktop 3D printers and laser cutters. It also helps that the Looking Glass works without a VR or AR headset. If you have ever used a...

RideAlong is helping police officers de-escalate 911 calls with data designed for the field

RideAlong keeps people in mind, and that’s a good thing. The company, founded by Meredith Hitchcock (COO) and Katherine Nammacher (CEO), aims to make streets safer, not with expansive surveillance systems or high-tech weaponry but with simple software focused on the people being policed. That distinction sounds small, but it’s surprisingly revelatory. Tech so oftens forgets the people that it’s ostensibly trying to serve, but with RideAlong they’re front and center. “The thing about law enforcem...

How Leonard Cohen Wrote a Love Song

So many songs take love as their topic, almost by default, that we hardly even think of the "love song" as a distinct type of musical work anymore. And when we do, we often do it out of a desire for alternatives: lyrics and compositions of a more complex, cerebral, and iconic nature, escapes from the simple paeans to infatuation, romance, and couplehood with which we can easily feel fed up. Few singer-songwriters in recent history would seem more capable of providing such escapes than Le...

Comment on obsessively good avocado cucumber salad by Suzanne

I made this with the added romaine and the lemon/ dill variation. I don’t know, maybe even though I increased the dressing volume, it just wasn’t quite right with the romaine. Tasted kind of bland. Will try again another time with just the cucumber and avocado.

Comment on bourbon peach smash by Suzanne

This was a huge hit! I have no idea what ginger beer is, so I used ginger ale. It was still really good. I used 1 tbsp of vinegar and couldn’t taste it. Will use 2 next time. Still, it was a nice refreshing drink that wasn’t very strong and wasn’t too sweet. I used tall glasses though, so I might have used more ginger ale than if I’d used a short glass.

Comment on watermelon cucumber salad by Suzanne

So…last nights dinner was seasoned lamb patties on the grill with this salad as a side – (knew I’d like it…but testing the water) – his words “You can make this again any time, it’s delicious!” I did use feta because that’s what I use to mix with the lamb. Tonight’s dinner will be a much larger plate of JUST this salad. Thank you!!

Local Living in Tuscany at Follonico

At Follonico, a hilltop B&B near the Crete Senesi (between the Valdorcia and the Valdichiana), life slows down as you step into organic, local living, listen to the sound of the birds and frogs, and let the beauty of nature impress itself upon your soul. This is the home and business of Fabio and Suzanne (Roman and Dutch, respectively): it was their solution to get out of the daily work routine in the big city, raise their children away from the smog and social norms of the city and spend more t...
