Read and Restore

News to me: Anne Frank was not the only young chronicler of the Nazi Occupation. Books are harder for me to get rid of than clothes. Even if I think i may wear something again, i hand it off easily. But even knowing I won’t actually read a book again, i still hoard it. I like the eye appeal of my well-stocked book shelves. I’d rather be better read than most fashionable any day.  What do you do with old books? Cookbooks I’m absolutely certain to not use, I donated to a local cooking school or gave away to friends they suited, i.e. David Lebovitz’s chocolate book to a sweet-tooth phene. My most treasured is a 1865 German Bible i … Read More

There was that one time I put snail semen on my face for the sake of beauty. I didn’t deliberately seek out this experience, believe me. I had received some upscale product samples, and only after having put the product on my face, did I read all the ‘natural’ ingredients. Yep, that’s natural I’d say. I didn’t do it twice, so I can’t vouch for the product. But hey, now people are beginning to get familiar with the idea of eating bugs for protein, so I don ‘t think the nastier things beauty pharmeceuticals source for product production is that odd. What made me think of confessing this absurdity? Snail Venom May Be Super-Morphine For Humans Discovery never ends. This is … Read More

One of my favorite excuses for not making my gluten free-vegan dessert business a better success (than I perceived it to have turned out), was the lack of a partner. I hated doing everything alone, let alone mustering up the daily ambition for it. The business side, the baking side, the picture taking-blogging side…I more than often wished i had a partner. We are in the pop culture age of labeling any prominent well known duo a power-couple. Out of all the cultural nomenclatures, this one bothers me the least. I actually hope that I become part of one, whether as a business pair or a 2 married entrepreneur’s household. Two minds are always better than one, i.e. Sherlock Holmes … Read More

Not Quite Right

If you haven’t gotten the memo, the most popular video on the internet currently is a few minutes clip of 20 strangers kissing. The astonishing effect is supposed to show our impulsive nature towards tenderness and acceptance. In the most beautiful result scenario, we humans can also exude genuine intimacy with someone whom doesn’t know anything about us at all but our names and our eye colors as we move in closely for the take. This is bullshit! Let me tell you why. It doesn’t take a social psychologist to immediately see that all 20 strangers chosen are attractive, like, more than just decent looking. Also, there is no mis-matches in all the pairs except one couple. Gays with gays, … Read More

Yesterday kicked off the first day of CPAC in Washington, so most are distracted with what the GOP and Republican types are speaking on, complaining about, and rallying for. It is serious business, and 2016 is a big deal. So i figure the only way to get some attention away from that is to mention sex. You guys are so simple. Here we have it: from tech to sex, from innovation to the absurd… How Spritz Redesigned Reading, Letting You Scan 1,000 Words a Minute This could very well put me on top of the world! Interesting new live art medium. Women Read Out Loud Until Orgasm This just sounds (pun) absolutely ridiculous and staged. ‘Cubitt’s idea for the project evolved … Read More
